    I am just curious and would like to know how often do people make withdrawals or have wins over a hundred.

    Is it once a week, every few weeks, monthly or every few months?

    I only started playing at online casinos about eight months ago and thanks to this site I have only been playing at Accredited casinos only. I had a really good winning streak in September and after that not much luck at all.

    I play maybe at five of my favourite casinos more often and will deposit 50 here and 20 there. Is it better to stick to one casino or spread your cash out at different casinos.

    Do people feel the same sometimes where you think it's not my lucky month or week this time. I'm sure everyone does :)

    I lost my lucky charm this time :( but it will come back soon I hope. ;)

    With lots of winning screenshots, I can only hope lol

    I find luck comes and goes. It goes more often than it comes.

    How often you cash out comes down a lot to your cashout goals.

    RTP is over millions of spins. But let's say a slot pays back 95%. If you deposit $20 a week for a year, and you only withdraw when you get to a $1000, you may or may not hit that goal. If you hit it once, you have achieved slightly over expectation. Since that is over expectation, you are more likely to not hit that point in a given year.

    If your cashout goals are lower... $50 when you deposit $20, you will hit it a lot more often. But $50 usually ends up being more play or a trip to the liquor store for me.

    I am a bonus player. I love playing slots, and I like the extra spins, even though most of them do not work in my favour. It's good to have more than one casino you so can pick and just the best offer available.

    If you don't play with bonuses, I would suggest finding a casino with a good cashback and loyalty scheme, and concentrating your play there.

    I don't usually play with bonuses and lately I mainly play at Video slots as they give cash back and race money which helps when you don't have any funds left to play with :)

    I try to aim to withdraw over a hundred as I deposit 50 mostly so to double your money is good enough for me but sometimes you play it down hoping for a bigger win lol

    Hey Mina. I have not won since June. I am down to my last $20 in my gambling kitty. I have absolutely no luck on Videoslots (your fav). I had luck on Betat (minimal) and Next Casino (minimal again). I have tried every game as I did have my favs such as IR, DOA but have abandoned them. So, I am getting close to quitting this stuff. Not fun anymore.

    That is a lot worse then me and I should not complain. I have been playing too much DOA I think and losing big time on that lol

    IN September I withdrew about 2000 from Betat, 1500 from Guts and Betspin about 1000 all in prob two weeks and later on about 1000 from Video slots. No withdrawal for ages now.

    I did find that when you play for fun and not concentrate on winning something you have better luck as lately I have been wanting to win so bad seeing all the great winning screenshots and nothing :(

    Well hopefully Barbara you will win something big soon :)

    Looking forward to your winner screenshots, wishing you huge luck :)

    Thanks Mina. It might be a good time to cut the losses. Oh well. I did have fun. To be honest I am almost happy to get booted out of the Videoslots battles. It truly consumed me. Sometimes a kick in the ass is a good thing!

    My goal is to make it to 1000$, but then my deposits are mostly 100-250$, when the monthly gaming kitty is getting empty only 25-50$ at a time. Still, mostly I try to hit the magic 1K mark. Only sometimes i withdraw lower amounts.

    Pretty much every time i play i manage to get 50-100 ahead, very rarely withdraw though. It seems very simple to make it to that much profit but the soon i try to get to something higher it gets strangely difficult and i mostly end up losing that little profit and a few deposits on top. :(

    As for the lucky periods i have a little statistic which might surprise some. As you might know by now i am a bit of a statistics fan, hence i keep a few records like amount of spins between bonus rounds, rtp figures, depos/withdrawals etc.

    This past 3 years i had a very funny pattern - 2 months really bad, 1 month OK'ish, 1 month super lucky -

    2015
    Jan, Feb i lost 30K without a single withdrawal worth mentioning, March got better, April i was hitting the withdrawal button all the time.
    May got worse again although hitting my first 5 scatter and WL on DOA (lowish bets); June, July i made 128 deposits in a row without a single withdrawal, August yet again hitting that withdrawal button a few times every day
    September, October nada, but really nada, November has been better, so i probably am looking forward to a lucky December if the stats continue in the same pattern :rolleyes: :D

    Yes I do seem to find that it does work that way as I had a very lucky September, October was ok and this month oh well.

    Do you deposit at the same casino all the time or do you have a few you play at?

    I just did a check for the past 4 months as i registered with Bet-At at the end of July 2015. My gaming distribution was:

    84% Bet-At/Slotty
    11% Videoslots
    5% Redbet, CL/Next, Energy, 32RED, Betspin, RV

    I am usually a very loyal player, e.g. Feb 2012-Dec 2014 i played 96% within the 32RED group (32Red, GL, Dash, Ned) until they introduced pending periods and downgraded my loyalty levels to the lowest one at 3 casinos, which was the last straw for me and the signal to go look elsewhere.

    It was only then that i discovered CasinoMeister and the whole Netent world and multi-platform casinos. Hence, after nearly 3 years not even looking at other places, i registered at a flurry of casinos, some 20 in total, over the next few months trying to find my new daily hangout. During this time i split my deposits among all those places but never found that peace of mind until i registered with Bet-AT.

    Personally i need to feel comfortable at the casino i play at, to become a loyal punter. The way the Bet-AT team has treated me from day one was just so welcoming and professional that i was immediately hooked :) .... a few days later they started the special CM promo which i won in August. You only do that if you play most of your time there and have a pretty lucky month, which August was :)

    Until today Bet-AT never failed me nor treated me badly, quite the contrary hence they have become my new daily hangout. :thumbsup: :D

    I did win the most at Betat Casino and before I came to this wonderful place I did too register at a few Casinos prob about 30 if not more and I was so stupid as I did not know about the currencies and deposited at casinos where they only accepted Euros or USD where I only use AUD lol

    I did not know a lot of things and I am still learning. Video Slots is where I hang out mostly, Guts and Betat now and then and there is Betspin, Casino cruise, Slotty Vegas and Vera & John but did not win on the last few :(

    I have changed the way i play after years of flogging the same old machines time after time.

    I now hit and run playing no more than 25 spins starting on min bet if it seems in a good mood i will up my bet to x3.(The 25 spins is if its totally dead if it seems like it is paying i will play on,but with caution)

    Been doing this for the past 5-6 weeks and my withdrawl rate has increased from 0-1 a week to 5-7 a week,the main reason for this is as soon as i have my deposit banked and am maybe 10-20 pound ahead i withdraw my original deposit amount so if i lose i at least break even.

    Plus its been fun again,playing games i have never played before plus i have at last learned self control no more of the bust then deposit cycle once my deposit is gone its gone.

    My last big wins was with kaboo,joined up on tuesday and deposited 30 pound got a 100% match so had 60 to play with,i dont like a bonus usually but was just after some extra for a change went mad betting 3 pound on alien robots needless to say the 60 pound did not last long.

    So on to my free echos which i choose to take on reel rush i then won 13 pound with my spins,onto dead or alive 18 pence spins had my balnce up to 30 pound when a nice wildline fell in balance now 560 pound so withdrew 500 and blew the rest playing big money spins on games that died as soon as i upped my bet.

    Hopefully i can continue this way but it is hard sometimes to tear yourself of a machine after 25 spins,i always have the nagging voice saying go on give it one last spin,the last spin usually ends up been 100s and bust.

    That is a really good idea, I will try that and I know it's hard to only do 25 or so spins but if it works then great :)

    Also if you win big on a certain game it's better to move onto the next game as sometimes you can't win big on the same game for quite a while.

    Jasminebed (back in post #2) gave some excellent advice - as usual :thumbsup:

    In my opinion, if you're playing very high variance games like DOA, then your chances of making regular cash-outs is very small.

    Personally I prefer medium to low variance games - I get a lot of play-time for my money, but still a fairly decent chance of building my balance up to a withdrawable level.

    To answer your original questions:
    I agree with the others who posted above that it's better to have a handful of different casinos to chose from, so you can switch when your luck is bad and you have the chance of more bonus offers.

    I typically deposit about 8-10 times per month (£/€/$100-300 per time). In a good month I have maybe 3 to 4 withdrawals, in a bad month 0 to 1 :(.
    October was totally diabolical for me: 12 deposits and only 1 withdrawal ($300 out from $100 in).
    November has been super so far, thanks to a great winning run at Videoslots (and that was thanks mostly to Gemix!).

    My recent wins over bet x100...
    September = 20: Apollo Rising, 2 x Devil's Delight, 3 x EggOMatic, Elements, Genie Jackpot, Golden Ticket, Jack and the Beanstalk (Bet x502 ;)), Jack Hammer, Jungle Jackpot, Mona Lisa Jewels, Invaders from the Planet Moolah, Playboy, Samba De Frutas, Thief, 2 x Wild Turkey and Worms.
    October = 12: Casper, Dragon's Loot, EggOMatic, Fortune Jump, 2 x Girls With Guns, Jungle Jackpot, Ladies Nite, Pig Wizard, Super Hoot Loot and 2 x Wish Master.
    November = Only 6 (so far): 2 x EggOMatic, 3 x Gemix and South Park.

    July was 8 and Aug 18 - so it looks like my average is about 12 to 15 per month.

    Wow you do play a variety of games :) I do play other games but not much.

    I will try a variety of games and see how I go, you never know your luck. I just have to get off DOA for a bit, it is so addictive lol

    All those games you mentioned I never played except for Jack and the Beanstalk which I do like but the free spins are so hard to get.

    Thanks for the reply, it's very interesting :)

    My luck was terrible this year from Jan to August with less than 5 cashouts. Then from mid Sept to the end of Oct was very good leaving me with quite a lot of withdrawals. November has been dismal. Overall this year my stats have been the worse in 4 years. I deposit on average 75 to 100 a week and when I win I use some of my winnings to re-deposit into other casinos to keep the fun going or not in my case. Still I do enjoy the anticipation and am hoping 2016 to go back into a normal pattern.:)

    Had to write one more post on this subject.

    Lucky or not, fact is i mostly lose really bad when staying too long on some slots, either hoping for a lucky turn around after 100's of rounds paying nothing or stupidly chasing an ever bigger hit on a higher bet after a big win. It does happen once a in a while but certainly does not justify the other "gazillion' of times that i lost the lot and a few additional deposits on top. :eek: :(

    My nemesis slots are TII, IR, Centre Court and DOA. The amount of times i hit 100+ or even higher wins and still continued playing it for that even higher payout is mind blowing. It is like i challenge myself to do even better and want to see if i can beat the beast to it :eek: :rolleyes:

    Funny part is that other slots i can leave easily if i get ahead by appr. 50 x bet size

    Just last Monday at 32RED i deposited 200 + 50% DOTD = 300$ to play, started on TII with 50 spins @ 3$, increased then to 6$ and made it within 100 spins to 1700$ with 6$ bets. Had 3 bonus rounds in quick succession and a few good base pays. Increased to 9$ & 15$ bets to go for the kill and the slot went stone, no, it went polar cold. Over 500 spins no bonus round and only 1 Wild Storm with 1 reel wild. Varied the bets when the balance was diminishing but lost that and over 1K in further deposits before the slot gave something back. Stupid, right??? :mad: Withdrew then 700$, ending the session frustrated and with a big loss of 1050$.

    Next morning i reversed 100 and made it back to 1K but again stayed too long, this time it was Centre Court and lost it down to 350$ (which i had then paid out in the afternoon), leaving me with a loss of 1400$ for the 2 days.

    I am not so much frustrated at the loss of money (luckily i can afford it) but at myself for challenging me always to get the better of the damn slot. :rolleyes:

    However, there have been times as well where it paid off to stay long on a slot, my biggest wins came along because of that. The 15K win (4 wild reeler on IR, 32RED) and 20K win (Loaded, RV) i got after losing some 1K first.

    I guess it is a matter of having that "right" feeling as to when stay or leave a slot. Well, one day we all will be smarter :rolleyes: :D

    Have to agree with TII, DOA and IR. IR is my worst enemy. My problem is I keep chasing the slot thinking it owes me something. NOT!
