I don't compliment casinos easily... and, I have been modest in any MG deposits over the last year, which is a good thing for my bank account. But, I do have "VIP status" :Angel: at Spin Palace. Usually, if I deposit $75 to $150, I don't expect much play, let alone a win decent enough to withdraw... but I deposited $75 on the weekend (no bonus on that deposit) and got it up to $3400, cashed out $3000 and on Sunday asked them to flush it and send via courier (no charge for withdrawals over $1000). When I called them, I asked what hoops I needed to jump through and also asked if I should update my I.D. etc.... they said it wouldn't hurt. So I scanned and sent off my proof of life and asked that they give me a courier tracking # since I am not home during office hours to receive courier.

Well, Tuesday (!!!) there was a courier notice (they did fail to provide me with tracking info, but I can't really fault them when they moved things so quickly!) so I was able to intercept and hold the envelope for pick up today. Now that was impressive... cash out Sunday, cheque arrived Tuesday. In the bank today!

Now, how does one repeat such luck? Is the win button turned off now? Should I just go to the gym every night and forget about gambling?? :thumbsup:

I know when nominations came in for best casino, Spin Palace was mentioned by someone else re. their good promotions and although I never win on those, I would have to agree that they are a good group with good offerings. Kudos to them.... I didn't even have to fill out one of those dreaded forms acknowledging any deposits I made over the last 100 years. Could be because I have switched to a pre-paid credit card?

Wish you all the same good wins and good service! :D

Perhaps the best advice would be to continue as you were, making deposits of similar amounts, and hope that one day lady luck will smile on you again. The $3000 will make up quite a few $75 deposits, and this should last quite a few weekends. having the $3000 sitting around may mean you find something else to spend it on before it gets eaten away by $75 deposits.
Clearly, there is a chance that betting big from a big win can make even more luck, and turn the $3000 into $30,000 - however this kind of story is very rare indeed. The most likely outcome from throwing the $3000 back into a different casino (or even the same one) is that you will have a more average session, and lose it back. With Microgaming, it does seem you get those days where everything hits, and you just can't lose whatever you do. Such spells have a habit of changing abruptly, and before you know it, you are chasing to get back up to the level that was previously your FLOOR. You then have to accept a new lower floor and cash out far less than you could have done, or continue to chase to get back to the original amount, or bust out trying.
I have had experience of both paths, both successful and failures. On the one hand, I have turned 3000 into a 15,000 cashout by taking the high risk option of betting big from the 3000 achieved from a 300 cashback bonus. On the other, I have gone from a low amount to 20,000 - took it out, and put it back into another casino, where instead of boosting it further to 30,000 or more, it dwindled right back to where I started the week, and I refused a surge to 10,000 ahead, and tried to get back the full 20,000 - on this occasion, I failed, I tried too hard, I did not set proper floor values so that I at least kept a portion of the big win.
The more I play, the more I learn, yet I still make mistakes and poor choices, probably because I don't engage logic, but rely on the rush, and satisfying it. This can mean missing a fantastic promotional offer later on because I have not thought about how to allocate the fixed amount available for deposits.

Thanks VWM. I did have my fun giving the progressives opportunities to reward me once I got my balance over 3K... and thought how nice a home downpayment one of those JP's would be. But, I gave them their chance and they wouldn't bite!
I have played long enough on line now to know I'm not invincible. I am going to buy a new mattress so I don't wake up stiff and sleep deprived enough to make bad decisions! And the rest will go towards my home downpayment account!
The best thing I did more than a year ago was change to pre-paid CC and this has certainly kept my limits reasonable and minimize the chasing. :thumbsup:

Not to sound like a broken record (most people have heard my story before)...don't play it all back. I won $31,000 one night and it took about 5 days to lose it.

Go to the gym, buy something tangible, put it in the bank or as another poster said...keep depositing as you were with the small amounts.

Congrats!:thumbsup:
