Is anyone "truely" bored with online gambling? I have gotten very bored with this hobby. I think I have played myself out. It's like its there and the only thing I know to do is sit infront of the computer and play online and smoke a doobie. Too much time on my hand? My average session on a $200 deposit is less 20 minutes. I will play alittle slots if they aren't paying. I will usually play a balance of BJ at $25 a hand with maybe a $150 bankroll. I either like to win right off or lose right off.

Im not complaining because of a losing streak or winning streak. I am just plan BORED!!! It's like the same games, same result no matter what casino program you play at. It's fun to win. But you know how it goes. You usally play most of it back at another casino between now and the time your Neteller Insta-Cash Clears (LMAO).

How does one "TRUELY" stop this habit. I think I would enjoy the atmosphere of the B&M Casinos. But they are 7 hour drives from my house.

I can relate somewhat to this, as I too, was getting pretty bored and feeling unproductive (but I think my unlucky streak, up until recently anyway) contributed a lot to it. Then I got this promo in the mail and it worked out, didn't have to spend a dime, so this perked my interest again. So I guess anyone can get into their slumps, even if it doesn't have anything to do with winning/losing.

The amount spent per session in such a short period of time, though, definitely seems to be a contributing factor.

I know how the distance and driving to B&Ms can be, too, although mine are only about 1-2 hrs away, but that's long enough if you want to go frequently.

Not sure if this helps, but one suggestion would be to look/plan for a trip to Vegas or otherwise, see what deals you can get, etc. (this will take up some time), and along with saving time save up some money for this and set your mind to it. Not that I'm saying stop playing online, but this would be an interesting "break" from it for now to have something else to focus on for awhile.

I normally win each month - but I never play without a bonus.

...I know its a bit boring sitting hours after hours playing BJ or VP with perfect strategy - but in the long run it pays out:)

Stop playing those stupid slots

well, playing should be enjoyable. if you are looking to win all the time that there is a problem. people who claim to win or "break even" consistently are simply not telling the truth. if 200 a session is not a big problem financially, then save up those deposits and make the 7 hour drive say once a month or somethin and let it rip! i hit vegas every six weeks or so. i tear it up for a couple of days then its outta my system till next time. win or lose its never boring and its fun to look forward to.

(When you get a big win, cash out & move to the next bonus)

Stop playing those stupid cards!

Blackjack has a relatively low variance but losing 8 or 10 hands in a row is pretty commonplace. If your bankroll is only 6 bets I shudder to think how often you bust out. If you are bored when you are betting a large proportion of your stack every time maybe you should take a break for a while.

Hi KasinoKing

Can you really keep a profit in the long run playing with a descend bonus - I mean playing those stupid slots:)

Playing every day is boring, but I find playing 2 or 3 times a week suits me. Playing table games and poker bores me senseless but at least there are so many slots that it gives variation.

Same here Simmo! I play usually max twice a week, sometimes only one. If I snag a bonus from somewhere, of course I'll play that. Gonna play tonight a wee bit, and last time I played was on Monday. And that will probably be it for me til Xmas.

Classic post KasinoKing, I love it, lol. Slot players of the world...unite!! :D

Well, I guess...
Can you ever win £600 from a 54p hand of Blackjack? ;o)
£0.54 is more than $1. With bonus side bets, you can turn $1 into more than $1000. With standard BJ and high limits, you can turn a $1 bankroll into $1000 by betting your full bankroll on every hand and winning 10 times in a row. Using this strategy, you have a better chance of turning a $1 bankroll into $1000 than with a slots spin. Note that bonus bets usually have poor odds. While maintaing a good house edge, you can win $1000 on a $5 bet in Spanish 21.

I couldnt agree more.

Its easier to win 1000$ playing Bj than winnings 1000$ playing slots.


...but you are right - I think its funnier to play on the slots.

Well, I only play when there's a bonus to hustle, but a couple of nights ago, I had like 4 different bonus offers in my mail, and so I had to play them, and then I got a bit win on two, so I had to grind out the ridiculous WRs...

... it was definitely a "time to make the donuts" moment for me.
