Ups and downs at Guts

    So I have to share what happened to me at Guts the last few days, it was a real roller coaster ride.

    Got some free spins a couple days ago, and I won $2. Normally that would be the end of the story because I'm not really lucky trying to build up a small amount into a bigger one. The other way around, I'm expert at!

    Anyhow, I don't remember what I played but tried a few spins here and there and ended up with $15. Then got just over $100. Thought about cashing out but it's been awhile since I've had a chance to play, so kept playing and landed this beauty.

    Ups and downs at Guts: guts.jpg,Dec 12, 2014

    I had JUST finished with free spins too - this would have been ever sweeter to hit during free spin mode!

    Did I cash out like a smart person? Hell no. I kept playing, I was up and down and even dropped below $200 a couple of times. Won a bit more and got back up to $400 and decided to cash out.

    Then I noticed some new games and decided to play another $50 - loaded up this new Merlin Christmas game, set the extra bet lever thingie on the side, and just as I hit the spin button I realized that the bet was set at $70! Did I win? Of bloody course not. :(

    So now I'm feeling irritated and I've dropped below the $350 I wanted to cash out. So what do I do? Like a sane person do I cash out $300 instead? Not this girl, what I do is jack up my bet and try to make it back. lol. And of course the obvious happens and I bust out.

    Kicking myself a bit and wanting to talk about it without getting any lectures about knowing what the withdraw button is for, I sent a message to Ben - and nice guy that he is, he doesn't give me a lecture - and not only that, he gives me back the $70 I bet by mistake on that Merlin game. :notworthy Yay Ben!

    But I had just finished losing so I'm thinking my luck went south, and so I start to play with the $70 and sure enough, I'm just losing everywhere. Down to about $14 and finally hit something, over $200 - then over $300 - then back to the $400 I should have originally cashed out.

    Suddenly got my balance up to $800! Did I learn from my previous mistake? Hell yes - I said I'm cashing out $700, and that's what I did. :)

    Whew. So from $2 to $500+ to nothing to $70 (thanks to Ben!) to $700 cashout.

    Thanks Guts! :thumbsup:

    Sooo...the morals of my story: First, know what the withdraw button is for. :oops: Second, even if you've been playing for years like I have it's still possible to get caught betting more than you expect when playing an unfamiliar game. Third, those little free spins can turn into something good if you can learn to withdraw and not be greedy like me.

    I am pleased to see that your rollercoaster finished with a happy ending. It is certainly very difficult to keep your cool when things swing up and down like that.

    Been a crazy night and morning at Guts for me as well. I deposited a small amount last night, and last night I could do no wrong! I withdrew a prince's sum, and left another $750.00 to play with this morning.
    I went to one of the new games this AM, played $5 a spin, and it was gone.....all of it....in around 15 minutes. That could have so easily been my gaming budget for the rest of the month, but instead I got carried away yet again. So easy to lose perspective, that is why I feel it is important to take breaks...haha

    On a positive note, the money I lost hopefully ended up in someone else's coffers.....and made their Xmas!

    oh well been there as well...............sometimes you just "feel" like keeping going....and then regret not cashing out later .......most of the times it starts with trying to chase just one more of those damn features .................... before you know it's 100 spins gone.....................then you think it's gotta be close to coming.................so there go another 100 spins................by then you are absolutely sure the feature's just round the corner..............and bang you're on your last 100 spins......then you think damn it all....let's just get it over with and end up with nothing.......

    moral of the story....???

    I don't think it's really addiction, it's just that those winning streaks seem to be hard to get, so when you DO actually get one, you think, "Yay my luck changed!" and you think it will never end. And then you realize that it ended 2 hours ago. :rolleyes:

    Yeap.

    About chasing that feature. When it comes after 300 spins and balance has dropped 2 $ , also bet sice is dropped minimum it gives 3 X bet .

    So it feels like : happy ending . :p

    Well Ben = Gentleman & Guts = Top Class, add the two together and you have one of the BEST online casinos.

    I'm glad you cashed out lil dragon :) - If it were anywhere else, you could have said BYE BYE to that money... With the Exception of Andy at Mr. Green, you will absolutely STRUGGLE to find more customer orientated and SUPER Casino people.

    Thanks Ben and Crew - Makes me smile when you do things like this for the community, means a lot!

    Well since its xmas I would expect to see the great escape on tv. No need to look for it as looks like you just had it.

    Great result in the end and well done on your cashout. It also shows again just why Guts and Ben are amongst the best in the business.
