Gambling to recover

Featured Comment

Are you aware that most of us are just in a repeat cycle of gambling to recover?.. Let me explain..

For the majority of players, all in all, we have lost more than we have ever won.. That is because, even after we win, we either keep playing and lose what "profit" we made.. or come back the next day, or the day after to play and lose what little we won the day before and lose even more till that next win.. 

So we keep on playing looking for that next win, busting countless times in order to get it.. not knowing when or how the win will come, bust after bust, we keep trying..

Then comes the long awaited win, which in most cases is not even close to what you have busted for it.. 

So unless you win big and stop gambling all together, most of us will keep going through this cycle of lose, lose, win, lose, lose, win cycle.. always gambling to recover, and some of us without even realizing it.. xD

you will never recover..until you recover from the first recovery that you tried to recover the first time...

lol exactly.. stuck in this cycle of never to recover.. the illusion of winning not knowing that win will soon fade away and will lose more trying to repeat it.. those are the bait.. those occassional "wins" we all so long for.. busting along the way!.. lol

when i play, i always keep my profits in vault and keep my capital. 

yup.. i do the same.. unless you never bust (lol).. you will eventually take it out of the vault.. may be lucky and get to put it back.. or end up busting all.. no matter the case, if you keep playing.. the bust is inevitable.. and eddie knows that.. no matter how lucky a person gets.. eventually they will lose it all if they continue to play.. xD

lol.. doesnt mattet how many small withdrawls you make.. if you keep on playing.. your luck will eventually run out.. you will deposit and bust it all eventually.. unless you win big and stop playing.. that long losing streak.. will come.. xD

Gambling is a double edged knife, and in no way intended for the faint hearted. YES you can lose endlessly, and YES you can realize your farthest dreams in one night (or one roll!). But the chances are, if you're looking at entering gambling (and it does not matter what method of gambling, online or in real life, with cryptos or physical money or cigarettes), as a means of making good income, you'll only end up depressed and find yourself ragebetting and losing more than even what the lose-lose-win cycle people are losing! Gambling can cause addiction, it can ruin lives and become unproductive, yet just look at how it can make many people have fun just here on stake!
I think...enough said.

I think gambling to recover is stupid, as the saying goes don't bet more than you can afford to loose and if you are gambling to recover that when it could become an addiction as you will put in more money as you lose more because you need to recover more, obviously you can recover as long as you are playing on a legit site. but the odds are almost always against you as gambling sites and casinos aren't made to lose money. personally, I think gambling should only be done for fun and MAYBE to make a little money but it is like playing the lottery, if you saw someone buying scratch cards to try to recover the money they lost you would probably think they were possible addicted but online it seems like a different way of viewing gambling. this is just my point of view though and others may view it differently.

You can never recover of what you loss i believe that. Even if you can recover then it would take a lot of time and that time is indirectly wasting money which is kind of useless of recovering .

i dont agree with this but i understand what you mean. in gambling anything is possible, you could win 10 BTC from 1 satoshi but i don't believe it would take a lot of time, i believe it would just take luck to be on your side but i don't believe you should chase recovering

When you bust you should just call it a lose consider it gone and move on.   However a lot of players don't see it that way.  Most players feel like like they have to keep depositing to make up for what they just lost.  Makes no since to me lol.

To win over 1 Btc with just a base bet of a satoshi will take a long time no doubt even if you have all the luck on the world on your side because the site is coded in that way so abusers don't make money of it :)

if luck is on your side though. it all depends on luck, i know it would take a long time but it could also be possible in a matter of seconds

Never chase your losses with more losses. That's what I have learned by experience and from what people's advice here to newbies in gambling like me.

If you have enough time, here is a good read from amarcrypto which details what things to avoid in gambling. It hels so much specially to newbies. Good luck to all!

lol.. you missed the whole point.. its not that youre gambling to recover... its just how it turns out in the long run.  the long you keep playing..unless youre lucky afk.. youll have more loses than youll ever have in wins.. even if you win lets say a week straight.. then lose for a whole month... youll have lossed more than what you win that entire week (most cases).. and that losin streak can keep on going.. by the time you win again.. unless you won huuuuge.. you win wouldnt even come close to the loses to get that win.. and even if you win more than whT youve lost, if you keep playing,eventually itll get you xD ... so no..not saying you gamble with tue mindset to recover.. its just how things turns out since most cases, players will always be in the minus xD

I would say the pattern you describe is all too typical.

The simple fact is that math is against you, the more you play the more you should expect to lose, not less.

This is why I always advise to only keep playing if you are having fun.  When the fun stops you should stop.

Good Luck!

I may agree to what you said since it relates really to my stats now xD . I have more lose than winnings. Well it depends to ones own temperament in playing also that decides he's own fate. If you are patient and not greedy enough then its better. ;)

Even at my local casino, I gamble hoping to recover. But the reality is that it is almost certain that you will lose more in the process. I don't know why it is like that, but that has been my experience.

Your strategy is so smartly. When you busted your rest? Do you deposit again like me, then busted again :).. Gambling is game for keep your bankroll :D

But you'd have to had a lot of pre roll bets done way before or you should have lost a big amount of money , that's what i usually feel of all gambling sites

pre rolls imo arent a good strategy as if you looes a bet that you have a 1% chance on then next bet you still only have 1% chance and if ur going by the logic of if you do 100 rolls you should theoretically win what if the roll is on the 99th preroll then bam you theoretically have to do another 100
