you get dissatisfied with "smaller" wins over time.

Always this exuberant attitude of entitlement I also think small wins are great, because they can add up to a commendable amount. It may just take a little longer to achieve the satisfaction you were hoping for. 20+20+20+20+20 is also 100. You can also play through with higher amounts: if you win 1,000 5 times, you will end up with 5,000 more than before. It's just difficult with 5,000 in one go Squirrel tactics are always good

Yes, but you're always risking your capital again. Better to go all in once, win big and then never play slots again But yes, at the end of the day you're still risking the same 5000€, but I think you increase your chances of losing if you play more often. Especially if you mimic my behavior and then Deposit in a rage

, but I'm of the opinion that you increase your chances of losing if you play more often.

That's also the case - the more often you play, the more likely you are to end up in the red overall. Somehow it's very logical from a mathematical point of view: the more often I do something where I only have a 90% chance of winning, let's say, the more the opponent's "house advantage" prevails in the end, the more often the "duel" takes place. Conclusion: not only squirrel tactics are good, but also taking a break

Right, that's why I always took a break, regardless of whether I won or lost. I had to come down somehow and the only thing that helps is a break, otherwise you lose control in an awesome way

Hi there I can't answer that in such a general way, at least not at the moment, because the "operating times" are strongly dependent on how I feel about the whole gaming thing at the moment or how it suits me and/or whether the machines are good If you had asked me at the beginning of the year, my answer would have been "3-4 hours a day", which was within this range for a long time. Since mid-February, I've changed this out of conviction: lots of non-gaming days at the moment...so it's hard to say...I don't estimate 10 hours a week. Sports betting, on the other hand, every day, but that doesn't take up too much time - sometimes more, sometimes less. In short: well dosed and manageable at the moment

hello back,

yes, it's very similar for me - how do you do it with sports betting? - Do you have that much of a plan or do you have some kind of system (e.g. bet in 2 booths at the same time, each with bonus and opposite)?
