Impulsive nerves taking over after huge win

    Won 3750$ on a 90cent bet on the "Break da Bank Again" slot at RedFlush yesterday (over x4000 win!)

    Great right? However I kept on shaking and my nerves seem somewhat shot. Even after I completed the WR, I continued gambling because I couldn't
    bring myself to stop and lost about 400$ since my big win. Not like me at all. Right now I just want to stop thinking about it but since yesterday I keep thinking about two things;

    1) I want to gamble and win big again........(I know terrible thinking eh)

    2) When/Is RedFlush going to process my withdrawal and am I going to be dragged through the mud trying to get my money out (fyi; its my first withdrawal on a welcome bonus so........)?

    In actuality I don't want to be thinking/doing either of the above. I have a 40 hour / week job, a girlfriend and other priorities, but I'm a nervous wreck and thinking about just gambling since my big win.

    Anyway thanks for listening......This thread took about 5-10 minutes to write, which means 5-10 minutes less time for gambling or thinking about gambling lol

    My friend, well done on your win and cashing out!

    A bit of advice from a fellow gambler; set deposit limits or take a small vacation from gaming until you've used those funds for something productive. I would normally agree that gambling what is 'extra' to you is harmless in most cases but it sounds like you could develop some unsavoury habits if you don't control your gaming before it controls you.

    Enjoy online gaming responsibly and rinse casinos; don't let them rinse you.

    I started reading and thought you lost it all. Well done, we all put something back after a good win,
    you still have a nice WD pending.
    Do they offer some sort of cool down period? Ask, get your docs sorted and congrats ;)

    You could withdraw half and keep the other half to play with who knows you might hit something even better! You could be on a winning streak even if you don't win again you still have a huge withdrawal.

    I think if you don't bet big you can't win big (people will say you can win big on high variance games with a small bet but how likely is that after all it's high variance) so while you have that big balance I'd use it high rolling on medium variance games :)

    Right, you got the 5 sapphires with wilds in the freespins. WTG
    Red Flush have a 24-hours pending period. Assuming you already actioned the w/d it will be done before the weekend, as they don't process weekends. Thursday after 16:00 GMT is the WORST time to do a w/d at Red Flush as it will sit reversible until Monday. So, if you actioned it before then, get drunk and sleep for a day and it'll be to 'work in progress' stage when you wake up.
    If you didn't PM RITHEN THE RF REP AND ASK FOR A FLUSH OR FREEZE until processed. He is a good chap and will no doubt help you.
    Don't spunk it back or you'll be chasing it forever and soon lose the 3750 plus more.

    COME ON! GET WITH IT AND USE SOME WILLPOWER!
    :lolup:

    P.S. Don't worry about docs - it will go to work-in-progress THEN they will ask for them in order to complete the w/d. It won't sit reversible while the docs are verified which at RF is pretty quick IIRC.

    Breathe, Deep breath. Need to get this under control becasue it can obviously spiral out of control. Next thing you know you are then spending all your pay checks chasing a win.

    Consider yourself fortunate that you got a huge win.

    I bet all of us treat the balacne in our casino account differently after a huge win. We are more willing to make larger bets that we would never do on a small deposit.

    Once you have the money in your hands, then hopefully you will treat it like its yours and only deposit and play how you normally would.

    Take a minute and sit down and write yourself a note to why it is best not to gamble any more of the balance. Maybe if you can think this though and get it put on paper it will help to get your mind off playing right now.

    Time to read a good book? Get out of the house and away from the computer! Go for dinner, go to movies. Do anything that does not require a computer until your Adrenalin rush stops.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Err, I reveresed twice. Only 20$ each time so not a biggie, but I'm trying to fight it because I believe it'll delay my withdraw being processed. Redflush doesn't allow flushing.

    I fully expect to be asked for documents. I'm not as organized as others on here and usually don't automatically submit documents upon registration (I guess I should eh).

    Yes I need a small vacation and perhaps some "calm me down pills".

    No chance. That'd be nearly 2000$ left inside and with my mental state the way it is right now, even if I won big again, I'd just bet bigger again and it'd eventually twindle to zero.

    Clever, yes that's the one; I actually ended up winning north of 3800$ total due to smaller wins on the other free spins if they count :cool:
    Thanks for the advice Dunover, I'll message RITHEN.

    Why don't you just open their chat and talk to them openly, like you did here? Tell them you want to withdraw your winnings and cool down a bit before you continue gambling. They are a reputable casino and I am sure they will cooperate and won't try to fool you into something.

    Also, do not worry about being dragged through the mud with your first withdrawal; again, they are reputable and accredited, reasonable verification requirements, quick payouts, high payout limits. I hope you did not play the prohibited games or anything.

    Indeed. It would be cheaper for him to WRECK his computer and get over $3300 back as a w/d which he has left, than keep his PC safe and get nothing back.

    Please - write a list of items you want to buy and/or things you want to pay/save with $3300. :)
    Spend the next few days looking forward to receiving the funds. When you do, and this list is satisfied have another play for $50 from your regular spending money if you have any next week. This will be far more enjoyable than playing again in future on the back of a numb disappointment at 'what could've been...'

    Don't worry - if your INITIAL reversal is less than the original trigger-withdrawal, it won't slow it down. If you reverse the WHOLE amount, yes it will start the process all over. Funnily enough, check my 4-reel shitstorm thread. I'll try and find it and edit this for you in a mo.

    I got this at RF's sister-site Casino laVida. Only half of your monster win, but got it paid promptly as I had part-reversed a small w/d (which I seldom ever do!) and the w/d period wasn't affected.

    If only you could watch charity adverts on loop. I try and think of the less fortunate when I win big it really helps its like imagine how much use that money could be to someone who has nothing and we are all fortunate having a roof over our heads etc.
    The other advice is great too get out the house try and socialize with friends and family as much as possible take up a new hobbie there is also websites you could confide in a friend and get them to hold the password you can disable certain sites to prevent you accessing them just until the wd is on its way and non reversible.
    This nifty software you download set password(get friend to set it) then get password back off friend after your heads cooled and enjoy your winnings! Make sure you buy them a few drinks/meal in appreciation of there help and support! Hope this helps ya and amazing win on BDBA!!

    I'll also mail you this mate just so you definitely see it

    It is always anxiety provoking waiting for a big payout, at least it is for me. It's been very rare for anything to go wrong for me, but I've encountered a few delays over the years. Longest was a four day delay last year over holiday season, and the casino did keep me in the loop, and even offer me an alternative method. At one point I certainly felt it was longer!

    At times, bank transfers have taken a day or two more than usual, you always worry it's got lost somewhere.

    One was a Skrill issue. The win was paid prompty, but I'd did enough to-ing and fro-ing to exceed my withdrawal limits to send it to my bank account! Didn't take too long to solve with some additional verification to Skrill to increase limits.

    One of my most memorable delays was Christmas week of 2000. Almost every casino terms say document requests must be met in a timely manner, and my daughter and SIL showed up on New Year's day to take my stuff home to scan and my daughter's water broke! Needless to say scanning my docs for a smaller cashout fell way down the list of things to do! I was pretty new to online gambling then and wasn't sure what timely was, but it was well over a week back then. The casino was most understanding, and I was paid very promptly after they were submitted.

    Made a first withdrawal at a casino a day or two before a holiday to Cuba, where I didn't bring anything for internet access and no access to any gambling sites. It was almost 2K withdrawal, and I checked at 5:30 am when I arrived home a week later.

    Use the time waiting to decide how to spend your money. If you used an ewallet, transfer it immediately, or at least most of it if you decide to keep a portion to be your bankroll.

    If you haven't provided your docs, get them together, you will be asked for them. I don't think I was at RedFlush, but my withdrawal was much smaller, and most casinos have a threshhold where they are required to ask for them.

    If you took a bonus and feel confident you didn't break the terms, take a deep breath, and say "Awesome".

    Enjoy your win, that's an amazing hit for a medium sized bet. Such hits are very very rare.

    I look forward to you telling us how you made good use of your funds.

    Nothing interesting, plan is to just pay off two of my credit cards which I've been using for gambling deposits as they've got a massive 25% annual interest rate on cash advances :eek2:

    I think someone above mentioned "restricted" games. I don't recall reading about any restricted ones in the T&Cs. Some didn't have any WR contribution though. In anycase, I don't think I played anything other than slots. I did keep note not to raise my bets too high as I noted a wagering limit in the T&Cs about not wagering more than 20% of bonus. Breaking this rule is often an exercise in patience after one has won a huge sum.

    Once I had my withdrawal denied from my bank and returned to the casino, because the amount was too big (3 times my yearly income, unemployed).
    Fun times….

    You can imagine. New bank account, docs, money go-return-go again. Around 14 days.
