    So, you took up gambling because you are poor, your family is hungry, and you need to feed them?

    Yeah, this will end well.

    Sure, I gamble, but I only use extra money that I don't need anyway: if I lose my family still eats.

    I started to play casually. A year ago I had a terribly hard week.It happens. And I could do nothing to relieve fatigue. Vodka didn't give relaxation.And I accidentally found a website in the Internet online casino. At the beginning of the play just no money in the slots and then put a couple of euros. I've played almost all night until the morning. And in the morning I felt myself have become new.And for me it didn't matter I win or lose.I just had a great stay!

    Tatabalo -- Whatever it took to make you poor will also destroy you if you gamble with any money that you need. You need to find a way to not be poor first. It takes years of experience to overcome the weaknesses that make good gamblers fail. You have zero chance. There are no magical systems that will make you rich. There is not enough luck in the world to save you. Are you listening?

    You will not beat an online casino. There are ways to beat a real casino. Learn them.

    It would be cheaper to use Heroin. That buzz you like is chemical dependency. It is the primary cause of problem gambling. Don't take my word for it. The internet is full of dependency issues based on chemical changes in the brain while gambling. You might as well use drugs. It's cheaper and faster to reach the end goal.

    This is a very interesting point of view.To become addicted you need more time than I can allocate. And about the drugs, it is not an alternative. I as a medic to tell that.Why do you play in a casino?

    I picked up gambling from my Dad. He would hang out in the illegal card rooms in the back of stores or at the pool hall. On the weekends he was off to the track.

    When I was 5 or 6 he started taking me to the track with him, letting me make a few bets. I remember looking at the program and seeing Flying Falcon. Being a Star Wars fan I put $2 to place on him and he came in. Now with $7 in my pocket I felt rich. I think that is where it all started.

    Once I was able to drive, my buddies and I would hit the track occasionally - never winning or loosing much, but had a good time.

    As soon as we turned 21, we started at the riverboats. The track was no match for non-stop action at the casino. Through college, I played a lot of BJ and slots and the loosing started. Upon graduation and finding a good job I started going more and more and the loosing really started to add up. I always had money in the bank so it never really hurt.

    For a while, I gave up the casino and was buying scratch off tickets. Usually about $3000 -$4000 a month. And for a while I was doing ok - not winning, but enough to keep playing. Eventually, that went to shit (as playing an 85% game will).

    Still wanting to gamble, but control losses, I turned to VP. Learned as much as I could on strategy, paytables, ect which led to a nearly breakeven game. Over the years I have picked up enough knowledge through VP.com and WOV to do pretty well. Overall results are better, but the swings can ne

    I started while I was at Uni, just out of boredom I think. Now I just really enjoy the buzz and OJO and Slot Magic sort my fix out!!

    I always believe that our strength which be our biggest priority when picking where to go in gambling part. We need to go with one that matches that, as that is what helps in increasing our chances the most! I have been doing casino business for some years now, I have found this best and now, I am aware of many things. It’s not easy to get in but I appreciate sites like gambletime.co.uk, which are amongst top known guides for beginners. So, as I said it is must to know what you do inside out and only then success is ever possible.

    Started playing poker online at Uni and then got into horse and sports betting soon after. Now I play online casinos on a regular basis as well as bets on football. I like to think one day I'll hit a big payout.... (still waiting..)
