What do you do when You lose a lot?

Featured Comment

Losing is always very bad, especially when the amounts of coins are large.

I lost a good amount twice in bitcoins, and I was very sad. I tried after my loss to recover right away, but I did not succeed. After this situation I took 28 days to recover what I had lost. The lesson I have with this is do not try to recover then after the loss, because the mind, the head, and your feelings are very hot and confused and can further worsen the loss. Some are lucky and manage to recover after the loss, minutes later, others take many days as it was in my case.

One issue with that is: cursing, offending people is not good, not nice, and you're proving to be unbalanced, and worse still you're on the verge of being banned from the casino depending on the level of behavior and aggressiveness you is uttering in the moment of sadness and fury with loss. Do not do this ever again, as this may make your situation worse.

When the loss situation, you have to be prepared to accept the loss because whether you want it or not, one day the loss will come, and if you are not prepared, you will suffer a lot from it. Based on this statement, what do you do when you lose a lot?

All these losses have made me succeed in casino life, do not panic, stay calm. Good luck. 😎

Well, nothing.. I'll never even try to recover a lost amount because that will end up in a bigger loss. I guess that's the reason I'm still in a +0.12 btc profit. The biggest amount I lost in a night wasn't more than 200€ and I actually didn't care at all because I was on profits. So what I do is getting over it fast, maybe some drinks and some league games are pretty helpful for this.

from the first time I got to know gambling, I was the type of person who gave anything that was not my fortune. so when I lose too much I will not expect to take it again because one day I will definitely get it again.

the first thing I did when I received lose was a short break or cooling down. Then try to accept the lose.

 

slowly try recovery and hope that in a few days the balance will come back again

Here's what you do ... 

Don't ever gamble more than you are winning to lose and accept that you have lost.  Chances are you wont win it back so there is no such thing as recovering.

Call it a lose and move on.

This is all to common in the world of gambling. The best thing which I try and do when I lose, is to write that money off as an expense, and not try to recover it. Recovery mostly just leads to even more losses.

What I did the last time I lost a lot is I log out of Stake and mope for some time. I also did some reflections in my life choices and after that is the acceptance and moving on stage.

To avoid such situations it would be nice if you wagered less and then continued your bet with the winning amount. If you have wagered high then always set a limit. I always use this simple and financially helpful strategy. Since I play only for fun, I always have a limit in my mind.

When I lose, I try my best to recover any of my funds by creating a form of business, but when you owe people as well and try to recover it's even more difficult, so I am now taking a different approach to recover funds, make a profit and make others happy too. I'm hoping in future that things can get better for me but I've not seen anything decent come my way in long!

creating a form business? a forum business? or ? is this kind of deliberately worded that way to be cryptic? lel 
but do you chase your losses ?

Chasing and try to recover a loss mostly ends up in loosing more. I do it differently. I have my weekly deposit limit that I want to spend on casino (stake). If I bust I just live with that. If I win I am happy. But by doing it this way I never have to chase or recover losses. I have a certain amount that I am willing to loose on a weekly basis and never regret if I busted that amount. So I do not try to recover the next week when I deposit again but just keep playing the way I always play.

If you have a unlucky streak and end up busting on a couple deposits then I think you have to take a break whether it's a couple hours or days. That's the best thing you can do otherwise you will most likely end up losing more money.

after experiencing a certain loss we will always try to make a deposit back to play. even though at that time the loss will increase due to the condition of the mind that is not normal or arguably too imposing. the best way to better take a break then continue the next day.
