    Just fun . I’m 42 now and I’ve learnt to just have 2 nights a week doing slots. When I was about 30 I lost 5 grand in one night on William hill . They only had like 4 games to choose from . Think it was called around the world .the feature was an aeroplane and u could choose a certain route to travel. But if u crashed u lost it all . And yeah after I lost all that money .I just thought yeah don’t do that again ! So yeah just fun now . But I am about 3 grand up this year !

    Bit of both for me.

    Fun: I play low stakes, try to make the deposits last, and have a plan to withdraw at certain points should I reach targets.

    Addiction: If funds allow, I will play almost every day. If time allows, I will have a bet every day. Its only work/deposit limits that keeps me in check. It took long enough for me to realise my problem, fingers crossed I do have it under control, but I am and always will be, an addict

    I’m an University student, it was Bandit who introduced me to slots. I play on low stakes, do not deposit more than 10-20euros a time but whenever I lose my first deposit reloading begins. Since I’m studying I don’t really have money to spare for slots, I always believe I’ll win a decent amount but somehow it never happens. Couple of days ago I checked my bank statement of 2018 – 4k euros deposited to various casino’s, 1k withdrawn but also lost(my whole income was only 6k!) . I decided not to gamble because it seems I’m really fuckin unlucky and can’t stop playing until my bank balance is 0:( however after a couple of days completely randomly I visited a casino webpage and lost the money I had. I’m not sure if I’ll be capable to control my gambling addiction in the future. Gamban doesn’t work, I live in a dorm and it blocks my internet connection. Service that excludes you from basically all casinos is only for UK residents. I can’t even ask for help from my family since we’ve always struggled for money and if they knew how much I have lost, they would go crazy and I’m already in debt about 500.. I enjoyed slots for more than a year but it has to stop, does anyone have an idea how to quit it?

    P.s. sorry for mistakes and maybe not completely understandable story, English is not my native language

    I’m an addict and always will be. As it happens I can just about afford my addiction at the moment as I’m doing ok , so it’s just expensive entertainment. When I was skint I was spending just as much though!!!

    Now it’s not the end of the world and beg/steal/borrow if I blast a couple of hundred quid, sadly I’d probably still do it if that was still the case, so yes certainly an addict at heart.

     

    Strangely though when I had nothing, all I wanted to do was gamble. Every day.  Now, I only get the urge once or twice a week and quite often I can replace the urge with something else.

    I’ll never beat it, but at 37 years old I’ve got a pretty good handle on my triggers.

    For me it’s strictly fun. I can play 20p spins and have a ball of a time lol.

    Got married other week and said okay no more. Managed to get this from lil devil just before I stopped again not about the money just fun for me.
    Now that I’m married though not gonna play even for fun just in case it eventually gets out of hand.

    Been gambling for years not an addict though as i can stop if i want to.. Have had some really good wins but i’m down thousands.. stopped gambling for almost 1 year as went abroad etc and then felt like I should play the lottery, lotto 49s and national lottery.. Hotpicks only though and been extremely unlucky to not get 3 numbers always getting 2 numbers correct, used some of the gambling money to clear around 2k debt and still currently paying of the remaining 1200.. but i only play for fun. Sucks to keep losing hence why I decided to take a big ass break from it, only recently got back into it to see if i can win from the lotto but only 2 numbers keep popping up, I only play 3 numbers on 50p bets.. almost had euromillions hotpicks too last week was gutted when my 3rd number didn’t come in.

    For me, it’s the thrill which is why I often just log in a casino and play with free play. I get the fun and excitement watching Bandit and other slotters which is why I don’t play with real cash.
