@TheresNoDInBonanza - Stop making excuses, it's time you realised you have a Gambling Addition.

Go to Gamblers Anonymous and fix yourself up. The 12 Step program works. However, you will only ever have success when YOU admit to yourself, YOU have a GAMBLING ADDICTION.
  1. We admitted we were powerless over gambling - that our lives had become unmanageable.
Sorry if my post offends people but it's been almost 9 months since he asked from help, and he's still making excuses to gamble.

Tough Love...

If you really want something, you will find a way. For 25K, I’d be telling my mother I have a gambling problem, give her all my phone and electronics, and lock myself in my parents basement. I find making problems very public has a way of keeping people on the straight and narrow.

Whatever it takes. No matter how unpalatable or humiliating. Do it.
I should clarify, I'm a middle-aged professional and I do not live with my elderly parents. I realized my comment made me sound like a 14 year-old. Which is why it's my example of the hell I would put myself through to NOT gamble in his situation.

Because you lose the value of money when playing online. Or in a local landbased when you would have 25k of chips worth in your hand. It would be a different story when the player would be presented 25k in cash in his hands.

They stall it on purpose, because they know the ones who cannot control themself would be too tempted to replay again. Burning 25k in 45 minutes. That was autoplay going beserk. Sorry dude, seek professional help. This 25k could have settled you at once. You should have told your relative like hey this is what i've won, please prevent me from playing again. Go out for a while.

For god sake. You should slam yourself on your head. This is stupid to watch man.

Just as worrying is what stakes are being played to win those amounts? You don’t win them spinning a dollar!

Wow 25k.

I could never EVER spin that amount of money away once I'd won it. I wouldn't even need to lock the account or even be tempted to play that away- the thought of 25k hitting my bank account would prevent that.

I can only imagine how addicted you must be to slots and I echo other's thoughts in here that you really need to keep trying to seek professional help.

Best wishes to you mate.

I took 65k recently from a casino. 65k in my terms is not life changing. Thats what i make on avg in 3 to 6 months depending if i'm motivated or not.

Rich or not, 65k is a lot of money. If you dont think it is then you've lost all sense of monetary worth. 65k is 3 years wages for a lot of people.

I know that, but for 10 years i run my own business. So yeah. I'm not your avg wagering guy. I was more worried that the casino woud'nt pay out at all.

I just re-read @TheresNoDInBonanza 's post and I had missed that part about losing it all in 45 minutes. I thought he was seeking ways to not gamble it away. I have a bad habit of skimming. Grad school and ADD ruined me. :rolleyes:

Agreed. That's how I felt after winning a large sum last week. I didn't need to lock the withdrawal or play with bigger bets than I'm used to. I was surprised by how the urge to play just disappeared.

The sensation of self-satisfaction in other words :)

Gambling is all about dopamine. Your being rewarded basicly when you press spin. It gives a great sensation when your winning, but an awefull experience when losing. Some long-term gamblers who won serious amount of handpays (i've spoken to a few, even ones who got married in a landbased casino) would rather feel annoyed by getting the machine locked in a call attendant status for getting a handpay. Its because it blocks or stops the event of having dopamine.

This is why you often see older females behind slots. The experience they get by winning (and thus perhaps even losing) is so overwelming and devastating at the same time. My own trick is when i get a bit of too much of this, to simply stop and do something else. Because i know the rush of winning could be archieved by playing a game online, doing psysical sports, having sex etc. You just have to go back to that moment.

It takes a bit of disipline, to know when to stop, know when not to play. I've had my fair share too of winning 8k, and putting 2 withdrawls of 5 + 3 k, go out of the house, come back, and replay it all. I've learned that with the next times this happend simply to leave it as it is, and not come back untill the withdrawl is actually processed and on my bank account. Maybe this helps other problem gamblers on how to deal with it as well.

I feel sorry for OP. You clearly have'nt understood what getting help means.
