I’m feeling lost.

Recommended Posts

I really don’t know what the hell is going on. I’m feeling frustrated and confused.

I am not a high stakes gambler. I bet 40p. 60p at most.

 

As of late, I’ve been feeling frustrated, tired and pathetic. For some reason, I cannot hit features at all. Nothing! I’ve lost hundreds of pounds on tiny stakes just trying to get something to feature but nothing is working.

 

it’s never been like this and I am feeling so demotivated right now. I feel like I have to pack this in even though I don’t want to.

 

it’s just gotten so ridiculous. Just now, I went 400 - 500 spins on DHV no bonus. I might be a little naive if that sounds reasonable but I’m so tired of missing at everything.

 

if I try to hit on table games. BJ is a constant 16 or 13. I am starting to feel like it’s a joke and I’m the only one not in on it.

 

i just want a little pick me up. But instead I always get my face spat in. It’s crazy that even at my little stakes, you lose so much.

 

Gambling youtubers don’t help. Don’t get me wrong, I know Rolla and the like have struggled to get features BUT THEY ACTUALLY GET THEM EVENTUALLY.

Sorry, I just came here to rant. I may have to hang up my gambling hat because it’s making me so upset. I’m only a young man and I don’t want to be like this for much longer. 

Funny thing is, I was still happy getting bonuses that didn’t pay. A feature’s a feature. But it feels like casinos have gone into thief mode since COVID19.

Lost so much and feeling like a complete idiot.

 

at 40p stakes.

Time to cool off and stay off the slots for abit mate. Find a new way to occupy your time.

Its true how fast you can rinse through a deposit even on low stakes.

Take it easy and dont be to hard on yourself.

@PhantomJoker unfortunately slots can take a lot of money even at low stakes.

As player says it time to take a break as it's obviously no fun for you at the moment.

Try and find another way to pick yourself up as gambling is not the way.

You're definitely not an idiot, we've all been in your shoes at some point.

Be strong and don't get sucked into chasing your losses.

One word mate gamstop. I did it 16 months ago and it's the best thing i ever did. First off for 6 months then for a year. You miss it to start with don't get me wrong but it doesn't take long before you wonder why you gambled online at all. Don't feel like an idiot we've all done it on many occasions. Somehow you've got to put that to the back of your head. That's the past. It's gone finished it's what happens now which is important.

As they say when the fun stops stop.   We have all had spells as a gambler where we have experienced what you are going through,  It is not good for you mentally and I would advise you stop because the last thing you need is more stress on top of what is going on at the moment.

Write the money off  and as @Kev40  says  try Gamstop   or Time Out your accounts    and stop playing

At least, you've come to the realization that Gambling is always a lose/lose situation. 

It may be the first step for you to understand that gambling is such a waste of money and time ... 

If you are ready and willing to overcome your addiciton, don't expect to quit overnight.

It will be a struggle everyday from the day you've quit. 

But in the long run, you will enjoy the simple thing in your life. 

You're young, don't waste your life with gambling. Stop gambling now!

Good luck mate

@PhantomJoker  

We all come to this point through our experience of Gambling ..... 

you have hit the NO ENERGY Brick wall that happens to all Gamblers who chase on any stake. you simply cannot win now until you recharge your body and rest ..... 

Force cannot win money --- so three steps or choices :

1. Stop completely 

2. Rest for a month , and then try again.

3. limit exposure to three days a week every week and see how you go .

Most people on here would advocate number 1 for you because your state of mind is compromised by depression , guilt, anger, lies , desperation and of course poverty , as a result of trying to beat the game ..... but at the end of the day all three choices are there . Do you have the discipline to stop , or to rest ....NO then its GAMBAN for you !!! 

Plenty of support on this site for those who strive to better themselves by ditching the slots completely .... but of course the corona virus has made us all prisoners of our greed , so you may have to take the hard option.....

BTG are a provider who attempt to sell dreams to gamblers. They take an extremely popular game (DHV) and add a further addiction level to it and release it as LIL Devil. The player now sits and plays the game and is unable to leave the slot until that final heart is achieved opening up the dream bonus. 9 times out of 10 the anticipated bonus is utter shit leaving the player dejected, Rolla built up the hearts at £10 spin last night, turned out to be a major fail.

Gamstop is the way to go m8, the only way. You will go through cold turkey for a while but u will appreciate it in the end.

at 40p stakes.

500 spins on dhv is nothing without a bonus mate, Im down €3500 already this year playing mostly 20-40p stakes. I had a break one month and played this month again and was the same shit, no bonuses at all or if I get a bonus it pays 20x max. while loosing a ton before getting a bonus so I know how you feel, I just accepted that and now I play mostly high volatile games since only that can "save" me a little bit but yeah, Its shitty. The best is to just take a break for few months I guess.

Fuck the slots, fuck the fobts, gamstop yourself if needed, you will NEVER win long term. Save your money for hookers and drink. Dont give affiliates your losses. There is more to life than this. Save your money and enjoy things that really matter. Create memories that will last you a life time.

And of course when you're finished with hookers and drink ....then do something memorable like giving something to those you love...  then you're memories will be filled with happiness .....

Thanks everyone! I’ve gone ahead and self excluded from all known online casinos.

 

I think the smart thing to do is just step away. Feels like a downward spiral from here.

 

Thanks again, all of your support really helped in that.

Just like to add to this that this doesn't mean you should see gamban and stopping completely as some sort of defeat, if anything a victory 🙂 . I have many times stopped for periods of time, my longest and proudest was for about a year didnt gamble a single penny on anything not even a raffle at for 50p no free bets or anything.after about 6months I began to see things as Kev40 mentioned, asking myself ,"why would I want to?"
