    I'm sorry to hear that it wasn't your day that day, Vinaya. It happens sometimes, but all things in life are a learning experience and you can either pay a teacher to instruct you how to win at things, or pay the universe and have it pay you back later with wisdom and money. It is tempting to keep playing past a point, but it's always good to know your limits. If you come up to $300 from $30, you made $270 and were on top of the world. As a rule of thumb, what usually works well for me is to divide a big win in half, and play carefully. So 270 / 2 = 135. If I were playing and won up to $300 (total with what I came with), then I would either go with half the winnings as the max that I would keep playing (135) or half the total of $300 if still playing (150).

    If I lose more than $150, then I'm no longer in the black and am in a caution zone. I might keep playing maybe a few more hands if I am absolutely sure I can turn it around, as long as I am at least 3 times higher per bet than what I have.

    So if I were to reach $100, then I would stop there because at that point I've exceeded my 1/2 limit, and am just barely over 3 times what I brought in.

    If you do it like that, then you can minimize what you lose and keep more of what you win. Even if you lost $200 after winning $300, you would still walk out or log out with 3 times more than what you put in if you go with the 1/3rd rule of your entry money. If you stay with the 1/2 rule, then you walk out with at least 5 times what you invested of that $30, even if you lost some. You would still win a lot more than you lose. Even if it wasn't your night and you walked in with 30, if you only played 15 of it, you would still walk out with half and only be down by 15. You will always have some nights that are like that, but if you develop a strategy like this and stick to it, you'll win more than not and have extra money that covers any short term losses and then some.

    Nice Johnyork! You should mark that lucky chair at the casino so you know which machine it is to come back to lol. I'm sure they change it up a lot, but I always see little old ladies playing just one machine and they win all the time. I rarely win at slots except the other day, but I think you have to stay consistent with one machine long enough, or get lucky with a machine when someone didn't wait long enough and leaves theirs.

    Nah, it definitely feels that way some days, though! :p

    There's a pattern to it. ;) If you jump into it without checking the odds and play low, it's hard to come up with a small bet. It's possible and it does happen, but it's not as favorable as playing like $30 or $50 rather than $5 or $10. The house always has a slight advantage on some games, and a more significant one on others.

    Knowing which ones have the best odds can help you come up faster when you're low on dough, and when you have a lot to wager, the ones that normally have a house advantage tend to even out more if you can manage to win larger amounts by being in a position to bet more. There's a system to it, but not everyone sees which system or pattern belongs to which game or watches the odds to know. Even if they don't, it is all about the fun. :)

    But if you're trying to win as much as possible, it is important to research your odds and pick up strategies for each game you want to play so you can win more. I encourage people to play the free games and really get good at them, and see how the system is laid out. If you can get a feel for the free games, you'll definitely get the hang of and do better at your paid games to come up faster.

    How great is that johny? :) I think it's pretty great when we enter the casino with some money and we get out with a large sum of money, at the same time we had way more fun that if we had lost... :D

    The biggest "heist" I ever made was in online sports betting. I placed a high risk multi-bet on seven soccer games and turned a stake of $80 into $720 overnight.

    I made a few hundred off $50 last time playing roulette. Between betting corner spaces, the third of the board and the third section of numbers- I somehow profited! Had most of the table following me around on the table thirds bets. Thankfully, my wife got tired and made me cash out while I was still ahead! I always have a lot of fun, and get caught up in the atmosphere, and overstaying my welcome- resulting in a total loss.

    The most I've made gambling is around $2700 in a game of Texas hold'em with my friends. It was probably the biggest single hand any of us has ever played at that point. Half of us bet like $500 on this single hand and I ended up winning it with a four of a kind.

    Wow! That's pretty huge! Were you in a casino for that, and did you leave the table right after the hand?

    I won 500$ at slots one time. I got a couple of nice lands and then a nice double land got me to cash out 200$ worth in one win. Overall it was a really good night for me as I took out the whole gang to dinner.

    I don't really know about the highest amount I made at one shot, I know that once I walked out with about 1000$ on plus after a 2 hours stand at a casino, but only to lose them at another one few hours later.

    Question says it all, I want to know how much you've actually won in one sitting in a casino, not the total. One time I won a $100 lucky win in blackjack, but I rarely gamble high stakes so that's pretty much it for me. What about you guys?

    Honestly, the most I've ever won is a $500 jackpot on a Batman video slots game. It was a lot of fun though, I'm pretty sure I ended up spending it all that night, partying...

    I can't remember pretty clear which was my biggest win I had. Because I never won big, maybe 1,5x of my betting money, most because I gamble so little and a few times a month. If ever a year. So busy with another things right now and I invest my leisure time in another stuffs.

    Made about $250 playing blackjack and I really had no idea what I was doing. I just kept hitting around 16 and 17 and the cards were falling in my favor.

    The highest amount I have ever won is $220. That was one of the most exciting days of my life. I can't exactly remember but I use to gamble everyday after I won this much amount and I became addicted to it.

    That's really amazing. I mean $800 is huge amount and my $220 win is nothing as compared to this. I can only dream of winning that much amount. I wish I could have won that much. You are so lucky.

    The most I ever won in one session was $525 although I had been up as much as $800 when I got 4 aces w/ a 3 playing a $0.50 Double Double Bonus video poker machine. I haven't had much success in the table games as I probably lost several thousand dollars overall over the years. I did win $300 one night playing Let It Ride but that was more the exception than the rule. I still love the excitement and enjoyment I get when I am gamble though.
