Here's the deal.

I used to play poker quite often.. between AC trips.. friendly tournaments.. and illegal ring games in Philadelphia.. I've seen some real ****.

I decided to try out pokerstars years ago.. before they shut down and reopened..
I played a free tourney and placed 12th out of roughly 13000. Bought me into another tourney with a chance to win actual money. I placed 9th out of 6000 and won like $250.

Took that 250.. played 1-2 nl.
first hand i get dealt kings. Some guy raises in an early position.. I reraise. He goes all in. I call. He has queens. Flops a queen.

I rebuy at a different table.

first hand i get dealt aces.
Same thing.. raise reraise..
All in. Guy has kings.

Turns a king.

Lost my winnings.



Now.. I took it at face value and decided to give it another shot. Next thing I know I'm getting bad beats every other hand and have drained my bank acct of 2 grand.

Let me be very clear..

there is no tangible deck online

There are bots programmed to beat you.

These are facts.

I've entered rooms where people are like "don't play with ______" (some player) "it's a bot"
After observing, I watched these supposed bots not once lose a hand. In like.. ****ing 2 hours.

Casinos are rigged in favor of the house..
And online casinos are extra rigged

Gambling online is literally one of the dumbest things you can do on the internet. It's not bad enough people go to Vegas and lose their homes.. now you can throw your life away from within the comfort of your home.

I agree with you, falsifications happen quite often. Therefore, you need to be able to choose an online casino with a valid license. Alternatively, you can take a look at the new online casinos here, preferably with bonuses. Then at least you can not spend your own money at first and check whether you play with a bot or not.

I wouldn’t recommend online gambling. Too risky and high probability of getting scammed out of your hard earned money!

Buy more gear instead and have something to show for it.

What I've learned - Run when you have the money on hand. Don't even think to bet more because this is a trap

The first time I went to Vegas I won a good amount playing the slots at the Imperial Palace. I found a machine that was "hot" and I was the action in the casino that night.

I ended up taking home avbout $1,500.00 however, at one point I was up about $4,500.00. It was as if the machine was hot for a few hours and then it started to cool off. Of course it is all about the odds and over time the odds catch up with you.

Winning certainly is a rush and I had a fun time of it but I also had the good sense to realize if I kept playing I'd eventually end up losing all my winnings or worse, losing some of my own money too. While I regret not walking away sooner, I was delighted with my $1,500.00 winnings as it paid for both me and my girlfriend's trip entirely and as I said, it was a lot of fun.

I've been back several times over the years and never had a streak like that again. I've been smart though so I always have a limit so if I lose that amount, I am done. I usually break even but it is not fun like winning is so in time I stopped playing which is why I've not been back in decades.

Gambling is an addiction of that I am certain.

He just told me to use this https://bestnetentcasino.info/en/playn-go-games/reactoonz site for "training". I don't really know how he did it, but he did it somehow. Maybe he just hacked some casino, lol. Or maybe his legendary strategy really exists.
Every slot is going to have its "jackpot" and once in a while that jackpot will get hit - it is a timing thing. I would venture to guess that your friend got lucky. Most slots allow you to bet 1 or maybe 3 coins per pull and perhaps he had some sort of method for determining when to bet 1 vs 3 but I would doubt he had a method that would work consistently over time. But hey - bully for him being there at the right time and walking away with such a huge win. People do win on occasion.

A friend of mine worked as an IT guy for Clark County. A woman he worked with had a dream she won a jackpot. She and a friend went to one of the casinos and she recognized the slot machine from her dream. When they got there someone was playing it so they waited. The guy offered to sell them his spot but the declined. Eventually he walked away and they took over. She one a few million. True story. Like I said, people do win the jackpots - it is just a seldom occurrence so over time, all those slots win far more than they pay out.

If I won the lottery, I would definitely help my parents with their financial problems and loan payments. It seems to me that everyone would think about it when they find themselves in a difficult situation.
Since I just started gambling, I could casinos without gamstop in this industry because I'm aiming for higher winnings than 50 bucks each. Do you know what I mean?
I know you have to be careful because there's much risk in this business to get around, so you don't lose everything you've got. Do you take many risks when you gamble?

I keep losing at the Mega Millions & Powerball. Sometimes I wonder if the system is rigged.

Every once in a blue moon I win $2.00, but very seldom. Sigh!

Somebody wins it, keep trying.
Remember to ask for "Jackpot winners" when you buy tickets.

Yeah, I usually buy one or two tickets when I go out for groceries. Earlier this year someone won 1 million at the grocery store I go to.

An interesting tidbit...

I believe For-Du-Lac WI. is known for having the most winners when it comes to lotteries. I can't say I am stating a fact here but I do know it has had a number of winners and has gotten some press in that regards. Also I believe that quick picks win more often than numbers people select themselves.

lol I grew up near fondlesack and I'd be shocked if they didn't have an insane number of gamblers. I remember growing up hearing that their bars per capita outnumber every other town in WI, which would honestly be saying something. Always hated that town.

Oshkosh was not all that far behind. I spent some time there learning to flatpack as the music store was owned by a Bluegrass Band and they took me under their wing. I even got to pick with Doc & Merle Watson.

If and when you pass through For-Du-Lac, be sure to stop and get a quick pick...!
