~ Addiction could be molded out easily when you do really have that kind of intent in mind on how to make quick bucks without putting much effort on it.

Indeed those are dangerous thoughts that always lead to problems, and not only financial ones.

Gambling isn't there to make quick bucks, it's for entertainment and relaxation. Even poker and sports betting should not be considered as a money making process, let alone purely luck based games like slots.

Yes, slots are addictive because it's fun to play them, and there are so many of them that you can always find a perfect one to your liking. And that's a good thing in general, but don't turn it into something more serious than entertainment.

This reminds me of those old days when I am playing crash game.  I use 0.1% of my fund betting on crash with multipliers 100x, 500x 1000x, 1500x, and 2000x in a single go using auto bet.  I see lots of reds out there but when it hits my maximum multiplier bet, it feels amazing  Grin.  I usually do that until my fund runs out or my bet hit 2000x since the fund used is already considered lost anyway. Don't mimic the kind of strategy I used. it wasn't profitable in the end LOL.
~

There are no profitable strategies for games like dice and crash. You can win only by chance, but let's not forget that your losing is not guaranteed either. So you can last for a long time with your allocated 5 bucks, having fun and enjoying your occassional big wins. Smiley

~

interesting, you said you win almost everyday with 1% chance
but in how many rolls?


Sometimes it's just a few rolls and other times it's over 200. I even won with 1% win chance 2 times in a row a couple of times.

and how you split your total bankroll on that? 100 bets of 1% of total?


My bets are normally very small. I start with less than 0.05% of my bankroll, and then I martingale, I mean I double my bet every 10-20 rolls, and if I lose around 20% of my bankroll I just stop.

~ Honestly, I haven't seen a banker or a casino close ~

Just think of it a little bit. If it were true that every casino was never going bankrupt that would mean the money making machine were invented. You just take a loan to open a casino. Then you paying out the loan from the profits. And then you are a casino owner with no debt, just making money for the rest of your life. Easy, right? No, no, it's not that easy. In fact, many of the newly opened online casinos don't last more than 3 months, first of all because gamblers don't want to play in new places, they prefer the established ones. Secondly, even if you managed to attract people by, say, a low house edge, maintaining a casino with one the lowest house edges is a hard job.
All casinos identical to the house are the winners. Although as a new casino it also all depends on how they provide satisfactory service. Moreover, reputation and feedback from gamblers. Making low house profits is based solely on individual percentages. But the truth is that the casino can make a lot more even if it only takes a small advantage from the players.

It can, but only if many thousands of players are registered there. What I meant to say in my reply to @gunhell16 was that opening a casino is never a guarantee of success. It's hard to attract people to your place, and it's even harder to maintain it on a proper level.

Returning to the topic, Why is it so hard to win at gambling?, I would say that it is harder to profit as a casino owner than as a gambler.

~
Here's my theory. People who were cashing out causing this current crash have actually made good money out of the whole thing. Now they are just waiting when it's low enough to buy again. No one wants to be too late, like, "Today it's $20k, I'll wait till it's $15k and then I'll start buying." The next day the price is $25k. "Oh, I'm f*cked! What do I do? Oh, the price is $27k already! I better buy now before it goes up way more." And so on. This way the very people who crashed it will make it go to another ATH.

And if it weren't obvious that BTC is going to be one of the best ways of payment in the future, it would crash completely long time ago.

OP, just don't think you are smarter than millions of the smartest people in the world. That's immodest.
By the time they buy back in it will be the same price they sold at so they wasted their time and also have to pay taxes on what they sold.

I don't understand what you have written, but I think I know what you meant to say: no one ever profited from Bitcoin, people were only wasting their time on buying and selling it, and also some money on taxes. Brilliant! Those are hard facts, right?

Good for you that hit ratio is works pretty well on your game. My experience is far different and the highest return that I can get on the normal spin is x2 but it's very rare so I just decided to play using buy feature since that is what I’m hunting when playing slot game.

The eventis not visible anymore, I’m there is an attached tournament on the spinominal games specifically on demi gods and the prize is what I mention. I don't know if it's already removed or not but that reward pool is the reason why I play that slot games during its initial release.

I really start liking the slot. Smiley Today I went to Duelbits and started playing Duelbits Book of Demi Gods III right away, because I wanted to check it's hit ratio once again after you said that in normal mode even 2x were rare. I hit couple of 0.5x of my bet, and also lost several of bets, but then for the first time in my playing this slot, that magic book, the 3rd one, stopped in the last reel and I won 10 free spins:



And then I was just watching a flick about my winning more and more with those 10 spins:



My bet was only $0.1 so in the end I won 126.5x of it



It was a nice experience. Smiley

I have already posted this in other topics, but another method that can help is look if the casino/gambling site is being represented by the trusted campaign managers in BitcoinTalk. I believe there are five campaign managers who are very trusted by the community, who also have proven themselves deserving of that trust, and they have the experience to sense whether a casino is a scam, or not.

This is an effective method. No doubt about that. A respected manager will never run a campaign for a suspicious gambling site. This is the main reason why signature campaigns have been run here. Not because someone can click on your signature and be redirected to a site(those cases are rare), but rather because it can be seen, by whom the site is represented here.

I always avoided these types of gambling games, but I must admit that after seeing them on the Stevewilldoit youtube channel, it does look fun.  Some of those jackpots are massive.  Although I'm sure we don't see all the losses.  Smiley  I can see how exciting it must be to get a bunch of free spins and watch massive multipliers pop up.  Not sure I've seen enough to be lured in quite yet, but maybe one of these days I'll try my luck and see if I can get one of these massive spins as well.

Can you please provide a link for the Blue Samurai game on the Stevewilldoit? I couldn't find it on both channels, Stevewilldoit and SteveWillDoIt Two. Maybe it has something to do with my location, or I'm looking at the wrong places.

Finally, got my first successful challenge here on Stake.com. Winning a bet on Video Poker by hitting 4 OF A KIND. This is also my first time playing this in-house game. ~


I was considering taking part in this one, but then I thought Four of a Kind was too rare to expect hitting it any time soon.

One question for you since you hit it. Smiley When hunting specifically for Four of a Kind, if you flopped Full House would you hold all of it, or hold only 3 cards of one kind and deal?

For those who don't know, you shouldn't necessarily be an artist yourself. No skills in this department? No problem. Just ask your friends or family members  to create a decent piece of art for you, and then submit it. That's what I'm planning to do, anyway. It was allowed before, and I hope the rules haven't changed.
There are no changes to the rules, but you have to be quite careful or at least check first whether the work is original, the work of your friends or family is not the result of plagiarism because if it turns out to be a plagiarized work you can get in trouble. I once tried to get my friend to do this but it's unfortunate because he doesn't know about Roobet so he didn't get the idea to make this art work.

Good point! I think everyone who's outsourcing the job, so to speak, must know that it is his/her responsibility to check the work on plagiarism. You can't say: "Oh, it wasn't me who plagiarized. You can't blame me! It wasn't my fault!" No. Since you are submitting it from your account, you are responsible.

What about BITCOIN PRICE - JUNE, guys? Any bets made by you? It is kind of sad that today the outcome odds for "$10,001 - $15,000" are only 17.73. I remember when BTC was between $60k and $70k the odds for that range were around the same as for "More than $1,000,000"! Smiley

Let's hope, things are going to improve soon. I bet on the "$30,001 - $32,500" range with some nice odds, 9.43. But we still have more than 2 days, so, that can change.

Interesting that $30k+ is considered about twice as likely as <$15,

I like the optimism of FreeBitco.in users too. Although right now, the "$30k+" you mentioned is only about "$30,001 - $32,500" range. The "$32,501 - $35,000" has the same odds as "$10,001 - $15,000".

but I suppose the odds are partially (or mostly?) based on how much money's already riding on the lines, huh?

This is how the outcome odds are determinied on FreeBitco.in, yes.

Steady recovery today but still struggling to put more of a distance from $20k. End of June should end strong.

Today, 15 hours before the end of betting, I placed a bet on the "$27,501 - $30,000" range because the current 9.59 for this range



looks very attractive.

Well, there are lots of activities that can trigger dopamine release: listening to your favourite band, making love, shopping, smelling cookies baking in the oven even. So, you basically switch to one of those, and you are fine. That's what I do, anyway.

I agree, that is why I divert myself to other dopamine-producing activities such as playing games when I feel that I am too hooked on my gambling activities.

Yeah, games. Great example. I forgot about it because I myself don't play video games, maybe because no dopamine release is triggered when I play, but, of course, for people who enjoy it, that would be a good substitution.

Usually I don't really believe anytime or something I do read up on internet which do tell something which is out or doesn't have sense nor correlating or being realistic.15 months is too long yet addiction to gambling could even happen immediately.  Cheesy

Idk, maybe they are talking about some severe addiction, and for that kind of addiction to develop it takes 15 months, but from my experience 3-4 weeks is enough for finding yourself in a situation when you start thinking, "Am I addicted?" 
12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How to Effectively Maximize Profits from Online Crypto Casinos on: June 22, 2022, 12:17:27 PM
That is so because trading is gambling in a way. You can never be sure about the outcome, you only have probabilities. People who don't understand it, lose a lot in trading. And gamblers that think, I know how to make a bit of money, right? I bet $1k with 98% win chance on dice, and I win 10 bucks easily, right? It's a guaranteed $10 profit, I'll buy myself a beer. And yeah, it works, but only with 98% certainty. And one day ... I mean, it's inevitable, it can happen right away, but it will surely happen one day, and you will lose one thousand USD at once, after risking it for potentially gaining 10 bucks.
I ever experienced this one and it's really fucked up considering I only want to earn steady low profit with low risk, but ended to lose all of my big bet after 10-20+ spins. I'd say 50%-70% win chance on dice are better than 98% win chance, there's some people who take bigger risk to bet on 10-20% win chance because it's more satisfy than rather than 1.01x-2.00x. After that, I wouldn't play dice and roll with 98% win chance, I think everyone already experienced this one.

That's what I'm doing, only not with 10-20% win chance, but with 1% or 0.1% win chance, or even lower. And when you win with that win chance, that's what I call "satisfying". Smiley And this actually happens not that rare as it might seem. It's rare with 0.1% and lower, but with 1% win chance I win almost every day. Just look at my yesterday's hit:



Only don't try to make money this way, guys. It's for entertainment purposes only. Smiley

^Book of Demigod III is very fun to play because it has an additional tiles for duelbits and the prize for hitting that is a vacation trip. I usually purchase buy bonus when playing it to save time  spinning since this game has a very low hit ratio while you can have an early profit if you get lucky on the bonus tile during the free spin.

I luckily manage to get x10 of my buy bonus that makes me ROI to all my lose on this game. So far I still didn't hit the duelbits bonus.

From my experience, the hit ratio of Duelbits Book of Demi Gods III isn't that low. You hit half of your bet back quite often, and 2.5x of your bet, like this



isn't rare either. I'm not saying that the slot is a money making machine, but you can last longer than on most slots I played with, say, $5.

As of the "vacation trip" you mentioned, please tell more about it. I couldn't find the info myself.

also, if you are already here in the forum, you're lucky because finding one is easy peasy. just look at their dedicated threads, check for their trust summary, and you will get the idea if they are doing their job to their players. and if you have ample time, you can even read their whole thread. with that, i don't think you won't get the idea where they are in this gambling business. and how they treat their players and more. you will only be screwed by a new site if you don't know how to read some warning signals. but all the info are already out there, you just need to filter the authentic ones.

That's true actually. You either know who to trust, and thus you don't ask such questions, or, the safest move for you is going to established sportsbooks with great reputation. The probability of being scammed in one of those places is almost zero. You will rather be scammed by your bank or your employer than by an established gambling site.

Many people say Blue Samurai is one of the boring games including me I will never play it except to complete the challenge
I just completed this challenge after rolling 400 spins hit bonus with 20 free spins if only with 10 free spins it will be very difficult to reach 70x
Like you before with 20 free spins only get  63x multiplier.



You were lucky. Congrats! What was your win in the end? There's 100% extra on basic reward for the Level two verification level. I think that would be around $6 overall. Did you get the highest possible reward or ...?

~
Thanks for the reply, oh I thought you spent like double-digit.

You are welcome. Smiley

I'm just afraid to lose all my balance if ever luck is not beside me. Still want to have experience in this game and of course to make my try on the challenge. I'll just set up a limit like 400 spins as mentioned by @Dewi Aries with the 0.03 base bet so I can just risk $12.

Just a small clarification. Smiley When setting your limit at 400 spins with $0.03 bet, you are not risking $12, because it's impossible to lose every spin out of 400.

As already been talked about by some of you, Roobet is up with a new art contest. Heads over to Roobet.com | Art Contest "Summer '22" | $4950 Up for grabs! Ends July 31st!.

Me too! Smiley Look:

~I think there will be soon one art contest back for the members to come up with new exciting arts for Mr.Roo Wink

Although I participated in all of them and never won any prizes, I can't wait for the upcoming one. It's always nice to see other people's art, and there's always a couple of really good works there.

~

Many of us were waiting for this amazing contest with so many great prizes.



For those who don't know, you shouldn't necessarily be an artist yourself. No skills in this department? No problem. Just ask your friends or family members  to create a decent piece of art for you, and then submit it. That's what I'm planning to do, anyway. It was allowed before, and I hope the rules haven't changed.
