    Any experienced gambler will tell you there is no such thing as a winner in gambling. We are all losers and winners.

    Haha, gotta love that martingale strategy, I wish I had enough money to play like that, I bet it has to be fun, especially if we bring 10 million home after all that fun! :)

    Not a huge win, but one of my favorites. We were running late for the movies and didn't have time to get to an ATM. This was about 20 years ago. We took a short cut through a casino and placed our $20 on the roulette table. We had a 50/50 chance of losing it, and missing the movie. Well it landed on our color, and we were just in time for the movie, and had enough for pop corn!

    Well that was quick thinking and apparently it was destined that you had to go to the movies and had some popcorn. So that's the beauty of gambling, sometimes we win and life is good. :D

    The first story that comes to mind is when my older brother woke me up at around 1 am during work week.

    It went a bit like this:

    My brother: Hey, Oliver! What's up bro?
    Me: Arghhhh..
    My brother: So, listen! I'm in a cab right now. Will be at your place in 10 minutes. Get ready, we're going to play some bingo!
    Me: Whaa..t
    My brother: See you soon!

    * brother hung up*

    So I wake up, put some clothes on and off we go into the night! While in the cab, the cabbie shared a story of having been called to drive a neighbour of his to bingo a few years back. Apparently, the neighbour won the jackpot (around 30k EUR) and gave him a huge tip. Our spirits were high, we knew we can do this.

    While in the cab, I warned my brother that I do not have any money on me to which he replied that he only has 50 EUR and we better win or else we walk home.

    Anyways, we got to the bingo place, won around 300 EUR, went on to the slot machines (quite drunk already) and won another couple hundred. I think we were at around 1.5k, buying drinks for everyone around us, when my brother started losing. I tried to convince him to go home, but he refused.

    In the end, he ended up with nothing and I ended up with ~ 200 EUR which I managed to persuade him were mine and not his to put into the slot machine :mad:.

    I have a few stories like this one, but this is the first one. I still like to remember that night since it was the first time I won "a lot of money" and it was pretty awesome - quite frankly, I wouldn't really mind if we'd have lost everything. After all, just the alcohol we bough must have cost a few hundred :D.

    Ha, come on, good one! At least you managed to keep 200€, sadly you brother lost a big amount, that is the issue of gambling and drinking, we don't know when to stop. A memorable experience though. I'd love to hear some more of those. :)

    Yes, well, it was a great night for me :D. The thing is, it was the first time I saw someone not being able to stop playing even though they won a lot of money already -I've been super careful and wary of gaming ever since.

    I also did not really like all the people out there as it seemed like many of them also could not stop. That's why I'd like to hear a lot more about online gaming in here and how do you guys make sure you don't overdo it / keep generally winning o_O.

    That's an awesome story :) The fact that he lost money is just something that happens. But, what I like more is that you got to keep the 200 bucks :D Great job!

    It is addicting. Just figure, we make a ton of money in a matter of minutes/hours, so we think we can continue doing it. The issue is that when we start losing we can't stop and we can lose more than we have.

    I remember hitting Twin Rivers Casino a while back and I spent 20$ at the slots and remember coming out of the casino with 650$ worth of winning spins. It was one of the best nights at the casino for me!

    I just made $12 off of five dollars in about 10 min., and it's the first time I've gambled online in quite a while. I just spun a few slot reels and pulled out while I was ahead. Back in business baby :D

    Wow, how that they let you pass the door in a casino if you were only about 10 years, or was your dad's casino? I always stated that gambling passion starts in our youth, it seems like you are just another case to confirm my theory.

    I have not won a good money since a long time. But then I have also not lost bi amount in the casino since a long time. Usually I allot $100 for gambling every month. If I go on losing streak, I will not lose more than $100 in a month because I only play with $100.

    I have not won a large amount as the casinos but I have managed to make some good amount of profit. I always bet a small amount. Actually, I play this game just for fun. So, winning or losing does not matter to me. I earned the highest profit in my life in the year 2015 ($180). I know it is not such a good amount but when I won that amount, I felt like I was one of the most luckiest people on earth! :p

    That is good money, any earning is good money because we won it doing what we love. What can be better than making money and having fun at the same time? Sounds like a dream job!

    I went to the black jack table once with a couple hundred and doubled it in ten minutes. These are the moments that make for gambling addictions. I think it's the adrenaline as well as the way that winning is so quick and seems easy. But the odds are what have the effects that can be devastating as well. Some people just might not know when to stop.

    The biggest haul I've ever made didn't come from a casino or a lotto ticket. My biggest haul came from a church raffle. :D That's still gambling, right? You put money in not knowing if you'll get anything back.

    Anyway, I won a very expensive lawn mower. (We're talking thousands.) It was pretty awesome. Still disappointed I didn't win the car though...

    Some of my biggest wins have got to be from online poker. Around a year ago I played the Sunday million on pokerstars and ended up winning 150k.

    My brother is VERY lucky man cuz he earns money for his family through playing online poker. As for me I'm not lucky such. Even his most successful casino (btw it's http://casinonsvenska.eu/) give me not many opportunity to win
