damn damn damn

Tell me I am not alone:

I am sure I am not...but, for the millionth time.....went to casino with 400 for dollar slots...won early, lost it all back. Then $500 on credit card, lost really fast on $5 slots.....then $250 on debit (down $1150), ran that 250 up to $2600, bet bigger......lost it all back before I left pissed off at $0....anyone relate?

Re: damn damn damn

not being flippant here but, why not avoid playing slots?

but I can imagine you are certainly not alone on this, especially with other slots players.

Re: damn damn damn

If you play multiple lines you can also cut back to slow your losses. Like playing 9 lines at a $5 machine is really $45/spin. If you played a single line you'd cut your losses by 89%.

You could also move down stakes too, which will also slow your loszes.

Serious question. Do you always bet bigger until you inevitably lose it all?

Lots of people have similar experiences (and much, much worse). There's even a place to share them in the forum:

Re: damn damn damn

i think I lost 6 figures in 2017 in pit games (slots, VideoPoker, table games) like 100-1000 at a time.

You're not alone.

You'll NEVER win it all back.

STOP now.

If you find it difficult to stop, seek help.

Re: damn damn damn

Just entering a casino means a brain disconnection of our logic department.
And surely the worst option to try to get casinos money is playing slots.
