was just sitting and going through a few figures earlier and sort of came to a conclusion that whilst i am in full time work and make a decent amount for my age and experience (recent uni graduate) i was thinking that a few extra and not always out of the question 's could help me along nicely. therefore ive concluded that making a paltry 25-50 a day (easier said than done yes) would mean an extra 750 a month coming in with perfect results so assume a good return would be say 500 a month for me.

interested to hear others thoughts on his especially KK as hes also a UK low roller and seems to play for the smaller but more frequent wins and cashes out more often that those who chase the big one hehe

fire away team:

Me: happy with 25+ a day extra from gaming..

Im a low roller so I would be happy with $50 3 times a week to keep me content. If I go over that, I would be very happy! As long as it stays entertainment with a few extra bucks, Im ok

good question:thumbsup:

Gambling is gambling. You will never have a steady income, no matter how good you are.

Skill games are the only way to make money consistently. The less players in the better, but then you need to have more skill than the others.

KK does his player bonus thing. Im not doubting his results but you will encounter bonus abuse, etc. It's not my idea of a pass time. I suggest you go on play money mode. Get a job delivering leaflets for a couple of hours a day. You are guaranteed your money.

House games are about minimizing your losses or hitting a good one. Skill games are about winning or losing on merit.

Gambling is only around because the house wins. Use your college education and forget gambling as an income. Treat it as a luxury.

I think you got the wrong idea Gary, Im not using it as a main income, as I said I have a job and a Degree to go with it, I was mearly making a point from a social view that if you were to play every day or so what would make you feel happy in terms of win amount. not sure where you got the idea that I was making it an occupation from :confused:

Sorry, well I would say anything you can cashout from. I would go for a double or quits system, Bonuses seem to tie you down. Im sure they might help occasionally but they can tie you down, and let you down when you have hit your target, but insist on making your playthrough requirements.

If I were to win every time or every day, it would take the thrill and the element of risk that makes gambling exciting away. JMO.

I agree with your figure ssgtsnelly. If one could win $25.00 - $50.00 a day it would be nice. You'd have to have control and not play with it. Let it build up until you could cash it out at the end of the week. I like to cashout larger amounts because of the fees associated with the cashouts. Quicktender : $30.00... my bank then charges $15.00 to accept the transfer! Very costly indeed. Hmmm, maybe let it build for 2 weeks! :)
Good question though.

Yeah
I never wait for the big one cause I know its not coming anytime soon, however, Its fun to get little checks in the mail a couple of times a week. I had a bunch of $50 cashouts from june 29th until last week with one or two bigger ones that came out to just over $1000. One Saturday about 2 weeks ago I got 3 money orders in one day lol.

I like the KK theory and Ive been like that for years except I never take or use bonuses unles there are no WR (or very low) attached. Hes much better at meeting WR's than I am lol

If I only started gambling today, I'd be perfectly happy with $50-$100 wins now and then. Same goes for losing $50-$100 occasionally - I would not mind much.
As it is though, I badly need to hit minimum of $50000 jackpot somewhere, to compensate my earlier losses to we know which casino :D

I really hope you're not seriously chasing that, for your sake. :eek:

I think EVERYONE would be totally delighted if they could average 50 a day! :eek2:

That is so true!
Make no mistakes about it - I do consistently win (last 12-months average: $789/month = $25.95/day), I do use bonuses (VERY unlikely to have 'bonus abuse problems since 95% of my play is on slots), but - and this is a very big BUT - it takes for fricking ever! I play every day, an average of 2-3 hours, and because I'm low rolling I can only get through 4-6 casinos (bonuses) per month. After a rough tot up I reckon thats about 20,000 credits worth of wagering per month.

There are definitely quicker & easier ways to make money online than doing what I do - but I don't have the bottle for it myself :oops: If anyone would like to visit a forum where the members profit quickly from cards rather than slowly from slots, PM me for the name.

Back to the original question: What are you happy making?
If I can get to the end of the month & have $1+ profit - I am happy.
I hate losing! ;)

Forget about the $50K JP. As long as you stick to deposits of $100-150/week this would be tantamount to winning a huge JP in the long run

How long will that take though? One never knows. Ive been depositing an average of $10-20 a day for 2 years and still never had a screenshot with a big one. I know Im a low roller but when I get passed a certain point, I do bet higher until a certain point again unless I havnt had a cashout that week, then I end up cashing out atleast $50 for anything over $75 that I have won

When I play - I usually go with the thought in mind how much can I play to lose. I never go in to playing with the thought I have to make this much money $$ When and if I win its an added bonus. There was a time when I was on a roll and won about 9000.00 and thought I cant lose. HA - I lost a lot of money with that thought. So today I play because I enjoy it, but I never play thinking Im going to make a living from it.:D
