    So im writing this last post here. As some of you may know i have had my ups and downs here and with gambling. But the last 6-7 weeks has been the nail in the coffin for me. The run of bad luck i have just experienced cannot be described by variance and bad luck, its like i am in the twilight zone.. I have since my 10K x stake win on DOA lost back prolly all of if not close to my winnings since then.

    I used about 6k of those winnings to pay of debts.. I now owe more money than i didd before that, because of gambling...
    Well its my fault for making the choice to gamble but i do not feel as if i have been playing fair games. ruffly 4-500 features on DOA not hitting 5 extra spins once!!!! No wildline, no extra spins, no 5 scatters in 4-500 features....!!!!! Its basicly like someone pulled the plug. I know i have a problem but anyone have to agree that losing 10k++ over 6-7 weeks not seeing one single cashout almost every session downhill from the start. And this betting only between 0.30-1.50 bets!!!!!!!!!!! Its starting to leave a foul taste in my mouth..And usually when something stinks its rotten!!!

    I have blamed the casinos and so on, who knows if its the casino or NetEnt themselves, but im 110% sure it has something to do with my IP or some kind of account because this kind of bad luck simply do not exist! The more i have bitched and moaned here the worse it has gotten.. I know allot of industry people read on this forum and i have basicly draged some casinos and software providers names trough the mud.. Maybe this is revenge :rolleyes: Or its just my account that has to lose back all the wins before i can win again who knows.. Online gambling is not random im sure of that now.

    I allready have problems at work and i really want to change jobbs, witch i cannot do now unless i can find another pemanent job(its hard) because of my debts im stuck there in living hell.. I am basicly on the verge of personell bancruptsy.. I owe something like 30 000 Euros. Most due to gambling. So basicly this has ruined my life, i find no joy in getting up in the morning and no joy in basicly nothing... I feel like i have nothing to look forward to no more. Gambling has ruined my life.

    I am not writing this post to get sympathy from anyone, i am simply writing this so that other people may read and understand what will happen to you if you gamble.. This will happen in the end.. There is no winning in the end the casinos will rape you and leave you without nothing. I know this is an affiliate forum and most of you will come running here to sweep this under the rugg, but there is no hiding the fact:

    Games are constantley getting more agrressive and geared towards the player losing money faster and faster. I think there should be more involvment from regulators as to responsible gambling. Like a manditory deposit limit that you have to set when you open an account, casinos should be allerted when someone loses a certain amount and so on.. But as it is right now it seams they are praying on the weak and compulsive gamblers. Theres gotta ring a bell when someone deposits 2-3k over a periode of a day or two. Lets face the fact who can afford to lose that?

    So this is it then.. I know you just put people in the quit gambling sections, but i prefer my account to be locked.

    There are some of you that has been nice to me and ive had fun but i gotta move on now before gambling ends my life.

    Good bye and Good Luck. No point me going on about whether games are rigged or not its in the past. I knew from previous posts you were having gambling problems which is why id advised to take a break and was told by others I was wrong. Sorry to see you are in such a mess but glad you have decided enough is enough. Hope soon you manage to make a fresh start and clear your debts off. Be a long hard road but stick at it and you will get there in the end. Look to the future and hopefully soon enough you will be able to get a better job, clear your debt and have a bright future ahead. All the best.

    30k is a lot, but it's not the end of the world. Don't worry, it'll take time, but one day you will pay it all off.
    I wish you all the luck and if you think that casinos have not been fair to you, then don't give them a damn cent ;)
    Stay strong!

    Goodbye dude and good luck in your quest.

    My advice to you is to not go bankrupt but put this behind you and move on upwards. You've made the right choice.

    I disagree that slots are rigged but realise your have lost a lot. Casinos and their ways are designed to ruthlessly target money no matter what level they have to stoop to - but the games are, in the vast vast majority of cases, as advertised.

    I do agree that affiliates and casinos like to pretend the bad stuff doesn't happen, either that or that they pretend that they are completely on top of it. Well I disagree, I see them targeting peoples addictions more and more (basically trying to force reverse withdrawals on players is a biggy - the way some of them treat their customers is another).

    Either way, your post made me reflect and realise some truths this evening and I wish you the best of luck.

    You've admitted to yourself the issue, and gone public. Well done for that, the first step on your journey. The heaviness of the debts and futility of what you have done are always at the back of your mind, meaning you are apathetic and don't perform at work and your problems there arise from the gambling, as will any other issues in your life at present.
    It's literally one day at a time. Eventually you'll put time between when you last gambled and the present, and things will seem more positive than they do now - but you must make it difficult from now on to play, whether that means paying your salary to somebody else or a debt-management plan or both.
    You are trying to rationalize an exceptional losing streak in the context of an unlikely massive win you had - they both are part and parcel of the same thing, the extremes of RNG-based games, especially the high variance types you preferred. That massive DoA win did more harm than good - it raised your expectations subconsciously to an unrealistic level and after the great peak began the great trough. Now you hate gambling, and for your sake while you recover, continue to hate it.
    You can do it, it won't be easy but don't give up. All the best in your efforts my friend.:)

    try to have some perspective and consider majority of people in the world are still considerably more poor and live in much worst conditions.
    don't lose faith in yourself, remember that we are all compulsive and all make mistakes,
    if depression is too much to handle on your own, please consider getting meds to help you ride this out,
    all the best to you!!

    Whodatrec ............. you have taken a HUGE step in the right direction!!! I can't disagree with a single thing you said. Wow is all I can say and stay the course no matter what happens.

    When I quit smoking after more than 40 years of nicotine addiction, it was one thing that got me through it ...... I got very angry with myself for letting something outside of myself rule MY life. Every time I was going to relapse I had a stern conversation with myself about WHO IS IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE. That worked for me and there will be something that works for you.

    Best wishes to you. You are strong .. look what you have accomplished already.

    Nice post by the OP.
    There seems to be a lot more people bowing out from online gambling lately.

    That will probably do more harm than good.

    Whodatrec, best of luck to you in beating this thing.

    My only concern with your OP is shifting parts of the blame for your situation onto the casinos or your IP or anybody else. None of that will help you and I always felt that to beat something like this you have to realistically place the blame only where it lies, with yourself. You are ultimately the only one who can make the decisions you will face at any time in the future and that starts with taking full responsibility for where you are now.

    OK, you made a mistake, it's not the end of the world. You must be resilient and learn from it and don't beat yourself up over it. Do whatever you have to to remind yourself of how this addiction has made you feel because after a very short time you may look back and think it was not as extreme as you feel it is now and if you do suffer a setback, remember, you are only human and humans make mistakes.

    Take it one day at a time and take care of yourself and the ones you care about.
