In the last 2 years of gambling online, (been online gambling longer, but regularly for the last 2 years) I have never cashed out for $1,000 or more.

This is odd isn't it?

Granted I probably don't deposit as much as most or play as much, but I do deposit at least $100 a week. (sometimes more, sometimes less)

I did have a balance of $5,000 one time, but of course blew it.

Am I the only one here? It seems like it to me. :(


Anyone else?

In the year that I have been depositing at one regular casino, I have not cashed out on any of my deposits. I never got my balance up to anything worthwhile withdrawing. I'm a low roller by the way so I'm not sure what kind of difference that would make compared to high rollers.
I have, however, withdrew from bonuses and it always was for the same amount $200.
It would be nice to be able to withdraw from your deposits where you have no max cashouts and can get a half decent balance to throw in the withdrawal section.
You are not alone, lol.
Just an afterthought...when a person does *win*, are they really winning anything, or are they just getting some of their money back. And on the other hand, when someone does win, will they put most of it back in hence negating the winning factor yet again?
The only way I can truly say I won, is when I hit a nice, big jackpot for a couple of thousand dollars. ;)

ditto

Ive had a few decent cashouts at the poker. Never at casino games. I got up to about 360 one time but managed to blow it before I got to the cashier. I honestly cant remember cashing out from any casino. I think I'll start this months rigged thread.

Im a min stakes player but it would be a nice lift if I could reach the cashier one day.

I swear I thought I would be the only one. I'm serious.

I am of course a low roller too. But it just seems strange that I can never get a half way decent cash out. ALWAYS when I play at a new casino I would win 200-300 and then nothing after that. (it's happening right now at a casino that I started playing at 3-4 months ago) I will win something at first, then bang, nothing, never again.

I think Bodog is the only exception to the above. But now they are taking their sweet time paying. :(

Ive read somewhere about someone that won 70K over a $8 deposits, I thin it was at Inet.....that's a winner (I dont believe it though)
Still Ive won 25K 15K 10K 7500 in the last 2 years and Im a BIG Time loser.
Note that I usually(95% of the time) play 20c/$1 bet.
When I did try more defensive game like blackjack for example....even worse, although Ive always used best and correct strategy from best known sites like WoO.
Im sure that our "luck" changes on the casinos needs.
They made money they will make you win a little...they need money...forget about it.All of em.
Of course this are JUST my opinions.

You'd be surprised how many are or have been going through the same thing. Some of us are just more verbal about it. :)

I probably would wager a bigger bet if I could only get enough in my balance to do so. We may be low rollers but in my own opinion, we are just as important to the casinos because we keep giving them our money, lol. :p

I have cashed $100 several times just to say I cashed out. then gave it back.

I have cashed $500 twice in 5 years. I play about $50 a week, so I am way behind.

I guess its entertaining to flirt with the chance of a big win, but they are fleeting.

I win regularly at the local brick and mortars so that should tell me to take the drive instead of just tossing it to the faceless internet places who comp like its a pain to part with their profits

It may surprise some that I have made very few big cash-outs in my 7-year career, despite the fact I have made profit roughly 7 from every 8 months over that period.

I think the trouble is if you aim for a big cash-out (e.g. $500+ from a $100 deposit), you are destined to fail at least 95% of the time. Most of my profits have come from taking a bonus, meeting the WR & cashing out relatively small gains. Lots of small profits add up to a tidy sum over the course of a year! :cool:
For example, on several occasions I have taken my Intercasino $100 monthly, just managed to meet the WR and cashed out only $5 - $10 profit. The way I look at it is that is MUCH better than losing and after all, there'll be another $100 bonus to play with next month... :rolleyes:

KasinoKing, I think you have the right idea. But I also believe that it is the gambler in us that says "The next spin will be the big one. Just one more time." And then we lose our shirts. If I play anymore online, I am going to try and use your strategy. When I get up a little, get out. Maybe I can at least make a $5 profit instead of buy a Ferrari for somebody in Curacao. :D

Up until about a a year and a half ago, decent wins were a pretty regular occurrence for me. I rarely ever deposited more than $50 (but there were decent bonuses w/playable WR). I'd always play slots and VP. I'd get my balance up w/slots play, then hit the VP. If I lost back down to my starting balance, I'd do it all over again. Sometimes I busted out, sometimes I'd hit a RF or get a couple of good hours on Ladies Nite. All that seems like some sort of weird dream or delusion now.

Then, about 18 months or more ago, the bottom fell out and it's all been a fast slide into the poop since. The numbers in my notebook told me something weird was going on (Lady Luck had left the building). So I backed off on deposits. Then the UIGEA reared it's ugly head, and things got even worse. Now I rarely play anymore. $25 for less than 5 minutes of low rolling isn't where it's at for me.

I had some wins right before the U.S. government pulled the plug. I won 9000.00 @ Lake Palace - and my money was in my hand in 3 days ( oh the good ole days) I can't do squat @ MG now :sob: I still play little deposits now and then, but I usually go in gambling knowing I will lose my money if I can play a while on my small deposits I feel like a winner :)

I just wanted to add something so that everyone doesn't think I am bashing a loved casino.

The last cashout I had from 3Dice was 1-11-08 since then I have made 33 deposits, with no cashouts. (my deposits range from $10-$50, normally in the $20-$30 range)

1st time playing

craps in Atlantic City Claridge Casino I won $2,500.00. (about 20 years ago) The dealer was showing me how to play. Have only stopped gambling on the occasional times I attended G.A. meetings for a month or so at a time. My best win was while playing at Foxwoods a few years after they opened. I won about $3,000.00 at the craps table and was smart enough to get out. So went to Misquamicut Beach in R.I. and laid in the sun for a few hours and couldn't think of anything but the money I had just won. Sooo I went back and believe it or not won another $4,000.00.... and finally went home. An unbelievable day that I have never been been able to repeat...though I have tried oh so many times.

................i seem to do good as far as the winner screenshots go, but like alot of peeps i blow right thru it, its the nature of the beast, to try to go after that higher payout, i won 2 r/j at inetbet within a two week period and had it in my acct. pronto only to be stupid and give most of it to 3- dice and several other casinos, i have lost more than i have won had i just used my brain and set tight not going after another big hit i might have a nice sum of money left. i have started placing smaller deposits and making smaller bets and so far it has been working out(knock on wood).i wonder sometimes if having money avail. to you in a q.t or m.b acct is sometimes worth it, its to tempting, just like a child running a muck in a candy store, is the way i feel sometimes but this is just my take on it only......................laurie

I had a very early trial by fire, that I learned alot from. I was new to online gambling and was playing at a rouge casino, I just didn't know it. Anyway, I had only made about 5 deposits totlaing around $200. Well, as luck would have it I hit a real nice hand of 100 play vidio Poker(actually I hit Max Bet by mistake) I was dealt 3 kings for hole cards and won a little under $300. I said to myself this is too easy and went to high dollar slot play. I went to Fat cat and was betting $10 per spin, on my forth spin I hit the feature, if your fimiliar with it, it's a pick-em feature. The first 2 windows I chose gave me a $225($50 and $175 respectively) the last window was for $3000.

I some how knew, that I was gonna get screwed. That's when I started looking at forums and found CM. I read alot of bad complaints and got really nervious. I withdrew $900 and continued playing the rest, figuring that if they see I'm still playing, I'm more likely to get paid. Which I did get paid in full for the $900, but I lost the rest while trying to show them I wasn't gonna cut and run.

I swore never agian will I play back a big win, you see that's where the Casino get's you, every stinking time. Instead, I would withdrawl and fill my time with either Video Games and painting, until I recived the money in hand and then would make another small deposit. Since, that time the US laws have passed making any ACH over $1200 nearly impossible, for me anyway.

Two weeks ago I had 6 withdrawls from TIV and SS totaling $1600, all from an initail $20 deposit at TIV. I waited until they hit QT, then withdrew $1000.
It was after I recieved the money I went back and played offt he remaining $400 I had in QT. Now, I'm out of QT money, as Rival has gotten cold on me. So, what did I do with my winnings? Run out and redeposit it? Hit the local B & M? Nope, I made an extra mortgage payment with it.

Now, what kind of gambler worth his salt would do such a thing, you may be asking your self. I would respond "the kind that plays disiplined." I would respond the kind that's actually up from online gambling, around $4500 by my counts. I would also, like to point to Kasino King, we have very similar play styles. Find a great bonus TRY to make WR, then withdrawl and move on.

If I had ever hit a RJ, I would withdrawl ASAP and put it towards one of the many debts I have. I would not have tried to turn it into life chaging money. If that's your mentallity, the Casino has allready won.
