...to throwing the towel in.
Played 200 today and as per usual a damned quick session with moderate bets. Shame. Out here in no-net land was really hoping for some at least playtime..and obviously finally a WD (some toys I'd like to buy being in nowheres villa. ..the nearest store is 25 km away lol).
This February will make 2 years with no withdraw.

What's your latest longest losing streak?

I find playing netent, play ngo and yggdrasil very tough to win on for me. All my cashouts come from pretty much microgaming wins

My longest streak was when I first started gambling online. I went 40 deposits of $200-$500 on 32red without a withdraw...was probably over 3 months.

Terrible first impressions. I closed my account perma and didnt return to online gaming until about 1 year later and tried different casinos.

I swore up and down 32red rigged my account and I thought online gambling was 100% rigged because of that

2 years? Are you sure you didn't misspell 2 months?

The longest streak was 7-8 months for me.

I withdraw less than other people I think, because I normally don't bother to hit "WD" button when my balance is less than $500, thinking about my average bet size is less than $1, going over $500 is rare occasion.

To be tell you the truth, during that 7-8 months without WD, I think I could have withdrawn a few hundred dollars, if I had wanted to.

2 year dry spell is because you don't like to withdraw a small amount?, or you are really unlucky with slots at the moment?-well, I mean at the moment is not really correct phrase I guess.

I really hope you get a nice win soon, no matter what, 2 years without WD is not funny.

There was the odd time I could have Wded though not for anything substantive. The biggest problem frankly has been simply not exceeding starting balance by anything much if at all. Example tonight I think at one point I capped at 240 from 200 then.simply downhill from there.

2 years without a WD is very bad.

i guess the obvious questions are;
how many sessions roughly would you say approx?

how many times have you been in a position to WD but decided to keep playing only to lose?

i ask because, I have had hardly any decent WD in 18 months -- meaning anything over $150 - if i deposit $10 and get to $50 i wouldnt withdraw--but some might.

But what ive noticed over these past few months at many OC's --- i rarely get more than what i start with -- bonus or no bonus --- i honestly cant remember the last time i was 3 x deposit up.

we all know slots are designed to lose--but cmon---like OP said a bit of playtime is the least we ask for.

I haven't had a withdrawal since mid-October. I've made a dozen deposits since and all have ended in busts.

I did manage to make a $50 deposit at Leo Vegas go 33 days and I built it to $200 but I wanted to get it higher before cashing out but the poor slot selection and bad luck at Roulette doomed me.

A couple other deposits lasted a week or so but I could not get to a satisfactory total and eventually busted.

My last 3 deposits went quickly. The RTG has been absolute shit regardless of the brand of slot.

However, my first two visits to a local in 2017 yielded $60 and $319 profit so I'm up $199 for January if I don't touch an online slot until Wednesday. I do much better during odd years at the locals and it's happening again.

I think in order to break your streak you need to make a small withdrawal just once, so next time you're in a position to withdraw that $40, do it!

Just so you don't go mad :cool:

Ok 33 days on 50$ is amazing...that is what some of us would love. Play time. Even if there was no cashout.

I don't blame you for wanting to throw in towel ...I get upset if I go 2 weeks without withdraw. I don't play same game for long and that always does well for me...I can't tell you how many times I have hit bonus on first spin...been playing at Red stag since last Friday on the same $75 dollar deposit but have played every single 5 line slot and was quite shocked at the line hits and bonus spins I have gotten. I definitely lose more when I stay and keep thinking I am going to hit bonus and I don't and then money gone. Going on my 3rd withdraw and have comp points in excess of my deposit. Good luck to you..I hope you start winning!!!

In my case, it would have to be on PlayOLG.ca. On the European casinos, I withdraw via bank transfers and they take $16-30 away from me. PlayOLG.ca takes nothing. I'm already down before I start.

Can't seem to get Skrill or anything to work, the customer service is awful. I have to use PaySafe and pay a $3-5 fee.

I think somebody wrote a while ago they're changing slots every 5 spins, it actually sounds fun, slotting equivalent of rush poker.
I should give it a go sometime, maybe go with the random slot feature they have at Vera & John or something like that.

No way would I keep taking those fees, it's enough to put you off online gambling. It's easy to forget how US/ Canada amongst others get hammered with these costs :mad:

Casinos should absorb these charges, or at least a large part of them....this kind of practice seems so outdated and unfair!

Yes, not the first time for me. Prior to my 3535x mega hit on Dead or Alive in late July, I made a $100 deposit on VSO last 4 weeks. Next deposit, I made $45 on Spinata Grande free spins and $313 on Dead or Alive and ended a 3 month dry spell I had going.

By the way, you're from Montreal. Did you visit Casino du Montreal recently and see them over-promote that mediocre Cirque du Soleil's Kooza slot? Here in Gatineau, they had nine slots (all being played), lights surrounding them in the shape of a tent and somebody dressed as a performer on Friday night. It's as if Kooza is Buffalo Gold to them. They were also promoting that people can play the slot on Espace Jeux, of course. I understand that Cirque du Soleil is based out of Montreal but this is way too excessive. It's a razzle dazzle SG/Bally slot.

Yes, it's garbage. That's why I have to play until I get to a certain number. Usually $175 after they take their cut is good enough.

Bet Victor takes $16, Leo Vegas $25, VSO $29 and Slots Million $30. I don't remember what Casino Room takes. Those are the 5 casinos I've had cashouts from other than the rancid PlayOLG.ca.

Open an Ecopayz account. Not every casino uses it, but quite a number do.

Also, Casino Rewards uses E-cheques, so no fee to your bank, if you are okay with long reverse period.

I tried EcoPayz, couldn't get them to verify my account and said it was blocked. Can't even get a straight answer from them so I said "Fuck it." and just ate the fees like I've been doing since November 2015.

If providers keep blocking us, what's the point? If our future is Microgaming, Play 'n Go, Rigdrassil, Red Tiger and Game Arts plus PlayOLG.ca then I'll stick with my locals more. Think I might take lockinlove's advice and just play Microgaming only for awhile.

Right here
Longest dry spell was probably 8 months, but that was on me - I like to go with a winning streak, and often, the first win isn't sufficient in my view to hit WD. I'm a low-roller, and the fees involved in withdrawing are so taxing, that in one way, it doesn't make sense to withdraw for less than $200 (on a $50 deposit).

My style of play is, for RTG, to make one spin - if there is no return, move on through the game catalog alphabetically; BUT if the first spin is a win - but a win which is less than half my bet - I make just one more spin (and make the same judgment). But if the return from any spin is 1x bet or more, then give it 2 more spins, banking an extra spin for each subsequent spin which pays well.

Caesar's recently mailed me a free chip, so I did a daytrip to AC to redeem it (and collect other comps) - had $5 cash on the way down, came back with $250. :) But I'd forgotten that smoking is allowed inside casinos. :( On a side note, AC is dying slowly. Obviously this was winter, but you can see in all kinds of ways things are getting desperate.

That IS seriously bad :(
What games are you playing? (So I can avoid them!)

Having a withdrawal target figure AND STICKING TO IT is very important when playing online.
I actually want someone to come round and slap me round the head, because at least THREE TIMES this month I have taken deposits (in the 300-400 range) up to 2 or 3 times my deposited amount... but failed to cash-out and the inevitable happened. :mad:
Seriously, I need someone to :poke: me.

My resolution for the rest of the year, is to hit that damn cash-out button!

Im not sure if you are a fan of just MG casinos but a couple of them do echeck so there is zero fees which is nice.

And I thought I was going bad lol

My best withdraw was in September I think for $3000 after that a few $200 now and then. No withdraws this month at all not even a small win lol

If I get up to $200 that's when I mostly withdraw and I usually deposit $50.

Everyone has a bad run and a good run. I try not to think about winning just enjoy the games :thumbsup:

I dont know why but every time I wander off and play unfamiliar slots, I lose. I cant think of a time its every helped me win. Some of the slots on videoslots ive never heard of just kill me. I tried a slot called mustang money...destroyed me.


I find HV games the best to be honest. JP, IR, FROL etc

Absolutely hate TSII. That game is a disaster waiting to happen.

I got destroyed by secret of the stones and TSII and bonanza last night. Not a good session. But went on my MG casino and won half my losses back. I swear MG slots payout better. Well some of them. The games that have different build to them like lucky leprechaun, lost vegas, ariana seem like the tighter slots and tend to stay away from them. You know, the ones with the auto play on a drop down menu off to the side.
