  3. Most people, whether they have a problem with gambling or not, can relate to the idea that people get excited when they win, and feel disappointed when they lose. Beyond the initial feelings of sadness from losing, when someone has a gambling problem they may feel depressed, as well as perhaps experiencing feelings of shame and guilt. Most people, whether they have a problem with gambling or not, can relate to the idea that people get excited when they win, and feel disappointed when they lose. Beyond the initial feelings of sadness from losing, when someone has a gambling problem they may feel depressed, as well as perhaps experiencing feelings of shame and guilt. Signs of depression may include: Increased irritability and frustration Loss of interest in activities and friends Feeling tired and worthless Struggling to sleep or finding it difficult to get out of bed Loss of appetite Negative or hopeless thoughts Most people experience some of these signs at different times in their lives but if you notice they are happening more often you may be feeling depressed. A recent study has found that people with a gambling problem were twice as likely to be depressed and 18 times more likely to experience severe psychological distress than people without a gambling problem. Further to this, the connection between mood and gambling is not always one-way and being depressed may push someone towards gambling in the first place. For example, feeling depressed, down or alone can place people at risk of developing or increasing their gambling problem: People may use gambling as a break or escape from negative feelings or situations Gambling may provide a 'pick me up' or a sense of feeling connected to other people. It is really important to look at your gambling and mood when addressing the problem. This will help you decide what kind of supports and strategies you might want to consider using. For example, if you gamble because you are lonely, it will be important to look at both the gambling and the loneliness when taking steps to get your control back. Increasing your activity level can be one simple way to help with your depression. It can boost your mood, give you a different focus, increase your sense of control, makes you feel less tired and can help you think more clearly. Just as you would train before running a marathon for the first time, starting with small steps can be the key. For example: Make your bed – it gets you moving and a sense of achievement for completing an activity. Go for a walk, gradually increasing how far you go each day. Cook a recipe you haven’t tried before. Sign up for a regular activity, this could include: o Dancing o Cooking o Fitness/Gym o Men's shed o Gardening o Art Class o Painting o Knitting o Woodwork o Get a Pet o Singing Make sure it’s something you enjoy doing, or gives you a sense of satisfaction, this way you will look forward to it and be motivated to participate!

  5. Many gambling addiction stories start out innocently enough—a trip to the casino here or there, a few good wins, then a loss or two. Then something happens. The same chemicals in the brain that cause a person to become addicted to alcohol or drugs soon start to react to the act of gambling in a similar way. A person feels a “rush” when he or she gambles, and because of this desire to experience the same rush again and again, starts to lost control over how much time or money he or she is spending on the ‘hobby’. Gambling Addiction Horror Many people have a hard time understanding how or why people develop gambling addictions in the first place until they are caught smack dab in the middle of their own gambling addiction horror story. These are some personal stories about the strife, turmoil, and devastation that gambling has caused for gambling addicts and their families. Mary’s struggle with gambling Mary started off playing the slots as a way to relieve stress, to have fun. Eventually, though, she found herself going to the casino three or four times a week, losing hundreds of dollars with each trip. She wanted to stop, but by this time, Mary says she was “on auto-pilot.” Before she knew it, she no longer had the ability to control how much time she spent at the casino or how much money she was spending on her gambling habit. Once she ran out of money, she took out cash advances on her credit cards. But that money went to the machines as well and she found herself unable to make any credit card payments, let alone payments to make up for the cash advances. With no money left and without the use of her credit cards, Mary successfully stopped gambling for eight or nine months. But as she will tell you, “That was only because I didn’t have access to any money.” Once she got back on her feet and things were looking up again, her curiosity got the best of her and led her back to the casino “just to see what would happen.” Within four days, she had overdrawn her bank account, causing the bank to close it out. After that, she began “borrowing” funds from the company to which she was president and chief executive. Since her eyes were the only ones to see what went in and out of the account, she figured she would take some here and there, and pay the amounts back when she could, all without anyone knowing. It didn’t take long for her to borrow more than she could repay. Don’s sports gambling addiction— personal stories about a broken marriage and tainted childhood memories January 3, 1983, will forever be ingrained in Dianne’s mind as the night her husband, Don, started their family down a long and winding path of deceit, disappointment, and disaster. That Monday night, the Minnesota Vikings were playing the Dallas Cowboys. Don had placed $1,500 bet on the game…and lost. After that game, it wasn’t long before Don’s debts began to pile up and reach unmanageable levels. As Don explained to his children that their video cassette player was broken—and that’s why the men were here to take it back— he was only telling the first of what was to be many lies in order to conceal his gambling addiction from his children. They eventually found out anyway. Don’s betting expanded to more than just football. Soon, he had his own bookie. “I bet every day of the year except the Monday and Wednesday before and after the baseball all-star game, the only two days of the year when there was no sports betting,” says Don. When Don’s bookie was the focus of a police raid, federal agents showed up at Dianne and Don’s home. This was a wake-up call for the family; it told them that Dad’s sports gambling addiction was worse than they had imagined. Dianne packed up the kids and left the house. Seeing an empty house made Don think he was ready to quit betting. In 1986, he began to attend Gambler’s Anonymous meetings and convinced Dianne he was done with it all. Dianne questioned his resolve when she found a piece of paper with a list of football games one night when they were on vacation. He told her that they were old games—he didn’t gamble anymore. After minimal research, she realized the schedule was for the current season. Don controlled the family’s finances, and so, could get away with numerous tricks and sneaky behaviors that would have not only been met with disapproval by his wife but were illegal. He forged his wife’s signature to take out loans to pay off gambling debts. Don learned how to kite checks between three different checking accounts, essentially loaning himself large amounts of money interest-free by writing bad checks between the accounts, and then clearing the checks with more bad checks, and so on and so forth. Don found himself visiting one banker or another on a daily basis. “I could at least relax on the weekends when the banks were closed,” he says. Don rushed home from work daily to beat the mailman to the house in fear that his wife would see any bank statements. Eight years after his first GA meeting, Don canceled plans with a friend and got his shift covered at work covered so he could stay at a casino. When Dianne didn’t get Don’s afternoon call (which came every day like clockwork), she knew something was wrong. When Don finally called, he asked if she would mind if he cashed in another $100 check. She told him, “Do whatever you want, stay as long as you want, I don’t care.” She felt too defeated to argue it anymore. When Don came home late that night, the bedroom door was locked. He knew he had screwed up bad. Because of all the pain he had caused the family, every broken promise big or small, his daughter refused to let Don attend her graduation or her wedding. Anyone who says ‘gambling isn’t a deadly addiction’ doesn’t know this story Many gambling addict stories end with mountains of debt, broken marriages, and lost opportunities. The story of Jihad Hassan Moukalled of Farmington Hills, Michigan has a much more tragic ending than all of these things combined. H. Moukalled had amassed more than $60,000 in credit card debt and had caused his own printing company to sink deep into debt, once mentioning to a neighbor that the business was more than $500,000 under. Over the course of two years, Moukalled had been making weekly trips to Las Vegas and Atlantic City to gamble large sums of money. After returning from a three-day trip one November night, Moukalled wrote out a suicide note, and placed it on the kitchen table, held down by salt and pepper shakers. The note read: “I never ever had a bad intent toward anyone. I think that I was gripped by the hope of ‘one more shot.’ I did not know how else to escape what I got myself into. It is over.” He then proceeded to suffocate each of this three children—daughter Aya, 7; son Adam, 5; and daughter Lila, 2—as they slept in their beds. Afterwards he shot his wife, and then himself. Apparently, at some point during his most recent trip, he had asked his company to deposit $85,000 into a bank account, hoping he could transfer the amount to a Vegas casino. The bank wouldn’t honor the check. Even if the bank had taken the check from a company that was already more than $500,000 in debt, it wouldn’t have covered eveb half of the $225,000 in torn-up casino markers that police found in Moukalled’s home during the investigation of this gruesome murder-suicide. Gambling Addict Stories—Admitting there is a problem Randy reaches for help with his gambling addiction “Approximately ten years ago I wrote a short story about myself entitled “The Bobber. Yes, that was me just bobbing along in all directions in the middle of an endless ocean. I kept a vigilant lookout, hoping that someone would save me by throwing me a lifeline. All those lines out there and none of them were close enough to grab onto. I was really tired after years of bobbing along and began looking forward to when I would eventually begin to sink into total emptiness. My writing cried out for help, but no one heard it… “Since being in recovery for a number of years, I’ve heard similar stories. Not knowing exactly where we were supposed to be and who we really were. Today I’ve just learned to accept that I am where I am supposed to be, one day at a time and doing the next right thing. As for those “recovery lines” … well, I found out that you actually have to swim out to get them and grab onto them. They don’t necessarily come to you. But once you grab them, never let go.” — Randy Mary resolves to come clean about her gambling addiction Mary sat in her car outside the casino, contemplating her situation, fighting the urge to go in and find a chair. Gambling had become an ‘emotional chore’ for Mary; something she felt she had to do because she knew she had to do something to try to get back all the money she had lost. Then she started to look at the bigger picture. She thought about her future: “I was so scared that I was going to end up doing this for another 20 or 30 years. I was scared that I was going to get fired from my job. I was scared that I was going to end up in jail.” As much as she wanted to, and as easy as it would have been for her to get out of her car and walk across the parking lot and into the casino, she didn’t. Mary started the engine, backed out of her parking space, and drove straight to her work. Again, she was apprehensive. Mary says, “I didn’t want to admit I was a compulsive gambler. I didn’t want to say it out loud. It’s hard to admit you’re a liar and a cheat and a thief.” But that’s exactly what she did. She told her business partner everything that had been going on. Don realizes he’s lost his family to his gambling addiction The night after coming home from his trip to the casino—after his wife told him she didn’t care what he did anymore—morning came and went, and the following night Don went back to Gambler’s Anonymous. The previous night would be the last time Don ever gambled. Gambling Addiction Stories that End with Recovery Mary gets a second chance to reclaim her life, her job, and her self-respect With the support of her company, Mary decided to attend a Gambler’s Anonymous meeting. As she looked around the room, she had a hard time believing that any of the people there had ever been compulsive gamblers, simply because they all looked so happy. She acquired a sponsor, but it soon became clear to her that she was going to need more than a few nights each week at Gambler’s Anonymous meetings to get herself back on track. Mary checked herself into a 30-day rehab program in Canton, South Dakota, which she says saved her life. In being surrounded by recovery addicts in GA and in the treatment center, Mary realized she wasn’t alone in her struggle. “I kept thinking I was something special, that my situation was unique,” Mary says. “But I wasn’t, and it wasn’t.” After completing her inpatient rehabilitation program, Mary returned home to Minnesota and continued to attend GA meetings as a part of her aftercare program. She also went to go face her old co-workers; almost immediately after coming home, Mary went to meet with her company’s board of directors. Mary was absolutely terrified. “These were people I had lied to and had manipulated…but they gave me a second chance.” Mary has slowly started to pay back what she stole from the company to prove her commitment to both her job and her recovery. After 18 months of being in recovery, Mary still attends GA meetings a couple times each week. She says having recovering people in her life helps her to stay on track because she knows she’s not alone. Vern finds help for his gambling addiction in rehab “I’m a compulsive gambler. That was difficult to admit when I attended my first GA meeting. But it was even more difficult after I had relapsed. “I had stopped gambling for more than three years when I succumbed again to the compulsion of gambling. It was at this time that I knew I needed more than a weekly GA meeting to get me on the road [to] recovery. I searched the web for places that concentrated on compulsive gambling and found Williamsville Wellness. I contacted the center, and Bob called me. With his encouragement, I applied and have never been sorry. “Apprehensive at first, I was welcomed by the staff and other compulsive gamblers throughout the four weeks I was there. Bob’s staff is incredible—top shelf all the way. They challenged me, listened to me, guided me and encouraged me to see the true inner self and the possibilities that had been hidden by my own behavioral patterns and compulsive gambling. Today I am on my road of recovery, thanks to the staff at Williamsville Wellness. What I gained there was worth the time, the financial investment, and the work to get me back on track. — Vern Don’s journey to redemption in recovery for his gambling addiction Don has been religiously attending GA meetings ever since his turnaround. Don has done a lot of work to gain back his family’s trust. He has even reconciled with his daughter, who banned him from having anything to do with her early adult life. Even 17 years into his recovery, Dianne still cringes internally when she sees Don flip through games on the television because she still remembers with clarity the days when her husband would be checking the scores of games he’d bet on. After years of GA meetings and marriage counseling, Dianne and Don have gradually repaired their relationship. Don is thankful that GA helped him to get over his gambling addiction, and overcome it at an age where he will still be able to repay his debts, and hopefully start some sort of savings account. A former gambling addict with a savings account—what a beautiful picture. Vi

  7. As the total value of the digital currency industry tops $600 billion, scores of new millionaires (and even billionaires) have emerged. Two of the newest billionaires who have enjoyed massive windfalls from the success of XRP are Ripple's current and former CEOs Chris Larsen and Brad Garlinghouse. arsen is the co-founder and former CEO of the company. He stepped down from that position in late 2016 and now serves as executive chairman, according to Forbes. Larsen's personal stake is 5.19 billion XRP, giving him a 17% stake in Ripple. According to the exchange rate for XRP as of January 1, 2018, this means his net holdings are worth $37.3 billion, launching him to the 15th spot on the list of richest Americans. The current Ripple CEO is Brad Garlinghouse, who owns a reported 6.3% stake in the company, as well as additional XRP tokens. His net worth, based on the current rate, would be nearly $10 billion, placing him in the mid-50s on Forbes' list of wealthiest Americans. ipple is based in San Francisco and makes use of blockchain technology to facilitate international financial transactions. Ripple gained about 30,000% from the start of 2017 to the start of 2018. In the process, it passed Ethereum's ether token as the second-largest digital currency by market capitalization. Early investors in all types of digital currencies are watching their net worths balloon as bitcoin, ether, and Ripple, among other digital currencies, all post massive gains and set new price records. (See also: The Winklevoss Twins Are Bitcoin's First Billionaires.) While many of the newly-created digital currency millionaires owe their fortunes to investments in bitcoin, the world's largest digital currency by market cap is not the only one which has made some individuals very wealthy. Specifically, the significant gains that Ripple (XRP) has posted in recent months may have added significantly to the wealth of certain developers and stakeholders. (See more: Ripple Is Emerging as a Stable and Trusted Cryptocurrency.) Chris Larsen and Brad Garlinghouse may have seen the greatest benefits from their Ripple holdings, but they are not the only ones who have profited significantly from XRP's stellar gains. Jed McCaleb, another Ripple co-founder, left the company in 2013 but retains 5.3 billion XRP as of February 2016. Because of an agreement which limits his daily trading volume, he is not able to access all of these holdings; otherwise, he would also be a billionaire.
  8. Sports betting is NOT so hard to win at most of the time! The reason almost all gamblers find sports betting so hard to win at is because they concentrate on markets that are hard to beat. Many long term markets are so easy to beat that if for example financial traders ever found out they would be astonished . I find it so astonishing that hardly anyone seems to realise this that I’m seriously thinking of showing my bets to a national newspaper in England in the next year or two because the misinformation out there is truly appalling and at some point something drastic needs to be done about it even if it seriously risks killing the golden goose . Im now banned or heavily restricted by every bookmaker in England and have won enough money to last me the rest of my life so I have nothing to lose . Im particularly angry at gambling forums and the utterly selfish hypocritical people on some of them. Its quite clear to me that gamblers are only interested in their credibility not in helping others .
  9. All the casino games (with just 1 or 2 exceptions in Video Porker games) there is House Edge that makes you certainly lose in long term. It’s not a sort of cheating or manipulation at all. Casino is a profit aiming business and it’s absolutely fair for them to set profit structure to cover their business cost & reasonable profit as any other usual business does. The below infographics (the same source) briefly explains how the house edge is built-in by using Roulette case Remember, mathematically you can’t win casino for long term. I am saying long term. For short term yes you have chances to win due to the Variance which is a dependence on luck, that is so called gambling. We’re not doing gambling but Expected Value Betting. Therefore our aim is not beating the casino game but focusing on the extraction of the bonus where we have edge with positive EV (Expected Value). So, Expected Value Betting is Placing Bet with Positive EV. Let’s see a bit of mathematics behind our approach. Always use Blackjack Perfect Strategy. It allows us to make the optimal decisions based on the cards we have and what the Dealer is showing. See the below table that exhibits your action to be taken for every occasion. All you need to do is to keep the table while playing and follow it. Don’t misunderstand this is not a winning tactics but the best tactics to make your plays close to the lowest possible house edge (say down to around 0.3%). Means you will still not win for long term but ending up with the lowest house edge. Simply put, reducing variance is all about our objective in Advantage Play of Bonus Hunting and the Blackjack’s very low house edge among all games makes perfect sense to do it.

  14. from time to time I will throw some winnings in there and try to forget about them so that way next time I'm broke or don't have anything to do I'll have a little bit of funds . I I just hate you have to do an email confirmation that usually takes about 5 minutes to come in I guess I just need to learn patience . but is a very good tool
  15. If you want to make sure gambling isn't having any harmful affects, the key is to keep track of how much time and money you spend gambling. Set money and time limits and stick to them Sticking to limits means you'll have more time and the money to do other things you enjoy, like going on a holiday or buying something you really want. Take regular breaks Gambling continuously can cause you to lose track of time and perspective. Step out for some air or a bite to eat at regular intervals. Balance gambling with other activities Make sure gambling isn't your main pastime. When gambling becomes your only form of entertainment, your gambling could be a problem. Never chase your losses Gambling is a form of entertainment so if you start chasing your losses, walk away. Chasing your losses will usually just lead to larger losses. Don't think of gambling as a way to make money Only gamble for entertainment. Think of gambling as an entertainment expense – just like buying a movie ticket. Don't gamble to escape If you are gambling because you are lonely, bored, stressed or anxious, you are using gambling to escape. Decision-making can be more difficult when you're emotionally upset. Make sure you only gamble when you're feeling happy and clear headed. Only gamble with money you can afford to lose Gamble within your weekly entertainment money, not with your phone bill or rent budget. Limit drinking when gambling Alcohol and drugs cloud judgment and this can affect the decisions you make when gambling. Learn from past gambling experiences If you sometimes feel anxious, guilty or just uncomfortable during or after betting, recognise it and do something about it. Follow these tips to minimise effects of gambling. Don't let it lead to something bigger.
