    How to deal with bad beats?

    That video with the Scottish lad stuck on the roof reminds me of the episode of Rab C Nesbitt, when he went to visit family down in London. They added subtitles so the southern people could understand them.

    Glad to hear you are sticking around pal as I know many of the members on here value your input...myself included. Never condescending or rude to anyone and a lot of us older gentlemen, if you call 44 old, can relate to you as we have a lot in common. I hope it works out my friend and as you have been there for all of us, we are also here for you. Good luck David.

    It is very hard to take when you do everything right but then all that work is ruined by one piece of luck! I played snooker from a young age and the amount of times I lost to some crazy fluke would drive me mad but you have to use the go to excuse for most sports....it should even itself out eventually....You must be due a month of solid 1000x wins on these bloody slots Rolla!

    The Wembley jinx continues @david1111 We would have struggled next season as the whole squad needs an overhaul. Was looking forward to the playing The Mighty Leeds again.

    Greed or Addiction?

    I posted on here a while ago about a workmate who had started on roulette with £20 and had a £2500 balance when I left him to go to work. He turned up later and I asked him how he finished up. He told me he had lost the whole balance! I said you must be gutted losing £2500 and his response was that he had only lost £20! He walked into the bookies with £100 and left with £80! That is how a true gambler thinks and to him he has no problem with it. Me....I would have been devasted but then I never would have got the balance anywhere near for fear of losing the lot. We are all different and we all have our own approach to gambling. Its trying to keep a level head but its not easy for everyone.

    Greed or Addiction?

    It is easier said than done but the trick, for me anyway, was to set a limit on how much I would gamble and then a point at which I would be happy to collect. A hot streak can turn to shit in no time! When playing roulette on the FOBT I would start with £20 and would play until I at least doubling my money. If I hit £100 I would leave after the next losing spin. I remember a streak where I hit number after number and I got up to £936. The temptation was to hit the nice round figure of a grand but I have seen so many people lose the lot trying to hit that nice round number. I put the £36 on and lost so I collected the £900. My mate went on after me and hit nearly every one of my best numbers...leaving me to think what if but as hard as it is you can't think that way. Be happy with the profit and do something positive with it as it is free money. I used to feel just as pleased with a quick double up...in and out with a little pinch. Enjoy the result and the break from gambling.
  8. Alcohol certainly doesn’t help. I’ve followed Hypalinx from his early days and he has and admitted to having a very addictive personality. His major losses usually occur when he drinks too much. He now drinks and smokes on a regular basis and has admitted he needs to calm down. A lot of his problems are down to the company he keeps too. It’s like a competition to hit the big wins and as we all know that can lead to a nightmare run.....usually ending with big losses....and then a break.

    The begging over there is ridiculous. People kicking off because they haven't won on the many monthly draws. I didn't join for that and I haven't signed up for any of the Bandits promotions or gone through the links. Too much emphasis on making money over there and on the videos. Never get by hassled on here or get links thrown at you. Rolla does the odd giveaway and it does attract a lot of extra viewers but that's not the reason the majority of us watch for. In general the chat on the streams is fairly sensible but what does annoy me is the people constantly urging Rolla to stick his balance on roulette or £50 spins on Book of Dead. No wonder he gets fed up. I don't particularly enjoy the huge stakes as it isn't of any interest to me. That's why the Reel King nonsense gets turned off as I don't believe it does any good and because I don't like it, I don't watch. No complaining or name calling required...just my choice and that's good enough for me. We all have our opinions and the forum should be a good place to discuss them without any shit!

    There seems to be running fueds between certain members and it does come across as very childish. I got a load of shit because I happened to disagree with someone who thought David Beckham was a Saint! I pointed out a few issues I had about that opinion, not in an aggressive manner, and all I got was a load of childish name calling. Obviously a diehard Man U fan but I didn't expect such grief. The argument continued without me getting involved and the thread was locked by Seedy, who had got sick of the threatening tone of later posts. Not a forum for adults it seems. Feel sorry for Seedy really. There are some good lads...and ladies over here so I think I will avoid the drama of biam and stick to the great bunch over here.

    There can be some great banter on biam but nearly every thread has a difference of opinion and that usually leads to name calling, nastiness and eventually the thread is locked and people get banned. So much bloody drama over a few slots. I don't think I have ever seen anything like that on here. Much more grown up conversations and the main reason I enjoy the Tgc forum is that I, like others, think Rolla comes across as a decent and genuine lad and we all feel his pain when the slot gods screw him over and over again. He never gets arsey with anyone and encourages civilized discussions. Something the Bandit should be doing but doesn't, often resorting to telling his members to fuck off if they disagree with his methods. Not for me I'm afraid.

    We need him to stay as there hasn't been any stability at the club for years. As long as he gets the right support from the board I think he will stay. To many knee jerk reactions towards managers in the last few years...lets stick and see what happens.

    I find the biam forum a bit childish at times, lots of bickering and name calling. The members of Tgc are a great bunch and are very supportive of people who may have major issues with gambling or other vices. I hardly log on to biam these says as its usually dominated by chat about Reel King and people bickering about the Bandit and his methods. The chat on here is quite varied and much more civilized. The advice given on here is much more constructive and I am sure people are very appreciative about it too.

    Everything is so much better on here than biam....

    The financial rewards for even one season could give these teams the ability to get so many things right for the future. Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff should have a decent solid foundation to come back to the PL as they haven't spent huge amounts of money on fees or wages like clubs like mine did, trying to buy our way out of trouble. We dropped to League 1 and will be screwed once the parachute payments stop. So we need to get promoted or I fear for the future.
