    I'm not so popular around here but anyways, ego is a bastard and last night it got the better of me.
    I was walking by a casino last night, went in and played few games of roulette, won £105 in the first round, I pretty much new it would be good one. After few more rounds i won £550 & lost £80 and minus the first £105 (got drinks for the boys) so i was up £470 and thought not bad for 5-10mins of "luck". As we were walking out i seen another table somewhat empty with one guy smiling, i was curious, went over sat down and played a few games, it was a "good" table and the guy was telling me to fuck of in a way, i could tell by his body language etc, he must have felt intimidated. However we both won & lost some. before we knew it, we were competing, this's where the ego kicked in. Long story short, i lost £3627. Unless you're filthy rich or wealthy ego and money don't go well hand in hand.

    I can relate to what you're saying buddy, and I completely agree with you. What's gone it's gone, so just try to control yourself better in the future. Strongly recommend to be careful not to get addicted, as it may seriously destroy all your life and family.

    Keep it up.

    Gambling is a business and nothing more that is just meant to take your money. Thanks to marketing they sell you this beautiful image of riches and comfort but it's the complete opposite for 90% of everyone who gambles. It is a fools paradise. Did you know they spray oxygen in some of the popular casinos to make you more docile and eager to blow your money?

    Take slot machines for example - the stupidest thing in the world. The only game worth its salt in my opinion is poker because if you have some skill you can actually rely on that to win and not just pure luck and fancy false-positive images.

    I've been to a casino once, all I lost was $20.

    Haven't been to one since, seriously. I just see no point in false hope.

    Seems the table was indeed "good"

    For the casino.

    Sorry you learnt it the hard way but Casino isnt a Real way to make money.

    I Too visit casinos 1-2 times a year,(But with a limited budget that I can afford to lose, without having regrets). If I win, i consider it as a bonus, otherwise I forget it as Expense:)

    Casinos should be treated like fun, gamble slowly and drink/get high/eat.

    Don't ever expect to make money and set a win/loss limit ahead of time. Example if I win $50 I'll walk away without playing more at that moment, if I lose $50 I'm done and will not spend more (obviously scale this up according to what you can afford to lose without getting pissed about it) and stick to that. I worked at a casino when I was 22, I think, so I'd play every morning when I got off, out of tips, and you'd lose but if you had a limit it wouldn't be too much about half the time. The other half I'd win a few bucks and hit my walk away and have extra and a couple of times a month I'd hit $150-$500 and those were always good days. In the end I probably broke even or lost a little but it was fun.
