As I lurk these forums, I can't help but be amused at people who claim that RTG payouts are currently set to around 10%. Clearly the other 87% are going straight to me. You would think my luck would be something worth envying.

It's IMPOSSIBLE for me not to score a big win playing at iNetBet or Aladdins Gold. I've only made about $200 worth of deposits, and have peaked at winnings of $2,500 total.

But, you know what happens? I throw it all away for the sake of... well, for the sake of nothing. I do it because I feel like crossing that next threshold will somehow make everything in my life all right.

I just turned 18 in May. This isn't how I want to start my life out. Online gambling is the single worst thing I have ever discovered. The money I just recently threw away (another $1,000 on a $20 deposit) was enough to allow me to pay for incidental things as I worked on my web content business. But you know what? Forget it. There is no logic when I gamble. There is only the dull, radiating pain that is simply waiting for me at the end of a session.

And for what it's worth, I witnessed the casino get FIVE pontoons in a row when I switched my bets to $100 out of desperation. Of course, the merits of online casinos are, with any luck, going to be irrelevant to me. I want them out of my life.

are you saying here ----->[another $1,000 on a $20 deposit) that you were up 1.000$ from a 20$ deposite :what:


if so your problem is clearly a bankroll management one :)

If you feel you have a gambling problem there is a section you should read here. There are also gambling block programs you can do. Also close your accts tell them you have an addiction and you would like to close your acct. If this is a one time I won so much and blew it dont beat yourself up we all have.

Glunn, I think a lot of the folks here know just how you feel. As young as you are, you need to just leave online gambling, or any gambling for that matter, alone.

I have one question though. You said you had just turned 18. How were you able to gamble online?
