Online Casinos in general: my story with a huge win of 450,000 euros and the misfortune that followed

I would like to tell you my little story.
Unfortunately, I deleted all the pictures months ago because some days really hit me hard.
I don't make things up or invent anything. If someone thinks that I'm just making it all up then let them think it!

It all started on a Friday evening in 2020. You meet friends in the Discord and play some games.
At some point around 11 pm everyone went offline and I logged on to my casino site (I don't know if I can name it here without further ado but it was a relatively well-known site with C )
I noticed that there were still some 70 cents on it and played some games on 5 cents. With luck and a lot of patience I actually managed to play my way up to just under 60 euros. Since I don't really play slots but only Live Casino games, I started my favorite game at the time, Lightning Roulette. (First of all, I only play on numbers and always the same ones)

after many GUTS hits, I actually managed to play my way up to 2000 euros and swore to myself that I would pay out 1500 euros immediately because 1-2 bills still have to be paid anyway. Since it was already relatively late or early, I decided to bet 500 euros on my 36 + edge numbers (11,13,27,30,36)
If you don't know Lightning Roulette, here's a short instruction (every round 1-5? numbers are randomly selected and get an increased Multiplier, the maximum multiplier is 500x)
The ball spins and on the 36 comes the multiplier 150x and I think to myself " if it bangs in there now then ...... ) and as if a magnet pulls the ball to itself the ball bangs into the 36 and I have 15000 euros more on the game account. I couldn't believe my luck and turned off the PC IMMEDIATELY and went to sleep.

Woke up the next morning and immediately turned on the PC and logged in. there they were, 16,500 euros. Yes, what does a gambling addict do with that? right, he continues to gamble.
But this time it was the game Crazy Time. (everyone who knows it knows how cool it can be when it's running) and whether you believe me or not it LIEEEEFFF like never before in my life.

i sometimes bet 5,000 euros a round and the bonus games were like this. 40.000 euro ... 50.000 euro wins every minute. I lost all connection to the money. it was just numbers which kept increasing. Once the multiplier of 50x came on the 2 and I wanted to bet 4000 (was the maximum on the numbers at the time) on the 2 but "only" put up 1000 euros and of course the 2 came and a win of 100,000 euros popped up. Instead of being happy, I was annoyed that it could have been much more ^^.
in the evening I had exactly 450,0000 euros in my account. I was already imagining the greatest things I could do with all that money. I went to bed at some point and when I woke up the next morning I thought to myself "hey if I can make 450,000 euros then I can make the million. and what everyone knows happened.
the wins didn't materialize. 450,000 became 300,000 and 300,000 became only 100,000. I cried with frustration and convinced myself that I would never have gotten the money anyway because some bonus payment or something like that prevented it. Well, I then simply tried to pay out the 100,000 euros and I had to submit lots of documents, some of which were rejected. At that time I asked an admin from this forum for help that I read that they work together with casino managers. on 22.09.2020 the time had come ... the first payout of 9500 was transferred to my account. it took 2-3 weeks until the complete money was in my account.

on the one hand i was happy, on the other hand i "only" received 100,000 instead of 450,000. the months went by.... i bought a great car with the money, moved and bought new furniture, went on vacation...... and yes, i kept gambling!!! deposited 500 euros here and 300 euros there. and faster than i could look, the money was gone after half a year.
i was so mad at myself why i didn't pay out 450k and why i kept playing after such a win of 70 cents.
and why was it the misfortune i describe in the title... i thought if it works once then it MUST work again. i sank my monthly wage in crazy time in less than 30 minutes and of course couldn't pay any bills that month and had to borrow money and even took out a loan. Just to get back into the situation I was in at the beginning. I actually thought xD if I win 100,000+ again I'll just pay it all off. Which of course never happened.
Today, just over 3 years later, I'm still almost 10,000 euros in Debt and if I had sold my car back then (I was about to) the whole thing would have been even more tragic.

Why am I even telling you this? Nobody in my circle of friends knows that and I had to get it off my chest. there are still nights when I lie in bed and think about what a life changer that would have been.
When asked where the money for such a car came from, I said that it was just financing and the move was money saved.

Even today I still play crazy time from time to time but then with very small bets and am happy when Pachinco gives 100x or more ;D.
i think that no matter how much you win when you're addicted to gambling, you always want more and more. In the end you lose everything and more and don't even know what an idiot you are.

Most gamers will be able to relate to this, you are not alone. Maybe not to this extent, but almost everyone who gambles regularly will have experienced similar situations that can break your heart.
For example, I once brought home almost 20,000 dollars from Las Vegas in 2014 after winning a slot Tournament, among other things, and invested a large part of it in Bitcoin and sold it again shortly afterwards to finance my next Vegas trip... (including a business class flight with British Airways lol)
What can you do, it is what it is and cheer up. Money comes, money goes. Let's be thankful for every day we are healthy.
10.000 Eur is not a big Debt now.
If you manage to control yourself and enjoy gambling again, even with small bets, that's great, just don't try to repeat/retain such a win under duress. Crazytime/Lightningroulette are also highly volatile, so you can quickly lose a few hundred euros on a total stake of just 2 euros. You should always be aware of this.
Without gambling, life would be a lot more boring for me, but it also takes a lot of skill, otherwise it will go wrong in the long run.

I know a similar story from a friend!
It's almost true what you said " that you've lost touch with money "
But with such a sum you have to build up a relationship first...you can't even realize how much money that is!
Besides, your behavior was completely human and has nothing to do with Gambling addiction per se!
You can also see from "Who wants to be a millionaire" how quickly our willingness to take risks grows once things get going!
It's just that there are no hurdles in the way of gambling that get more difficult every time!

And even if it wasn't 450, you at least paid out 100 AND BUYED YOURSELF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL!
If you were really addicted to gambling, you wouldn't have any other needs than to play! You wouldn't have thought of what to do with the money and would have kept on gambling!

I also notice that you are much more preoccupied with thoughts like "what could have been, what if" so somehow you can never be satisfied with what you have and the anger increasingly outweighs the joy!
That should give you something to think about and you should observe your emotional world a bit when you play...maybe you're not suffering from an addiction at all but from depression, which you're trying to compensate for by playing?!

I can fully understand what you're saying, especially about only seeing payments instead of the real value of the money. That would be like cracking the euro but not finding the bill again, or like the guy who had 2 million in Bitcoin and disposed of the hard disk back then... I can't even imagine living like that afterwards...

Thank you for sharing your gambling anecdote with us. Maybe it will save someone else from making a similar mistake.

But you write "I think that no matter how much you win when you are addicted to gambling you always want more and more."

I would also describe myself as addicted to gambling, but I don't have this desire to win more and more. I usually set myself limits in my head. For example, if I've gambled my way up from 30 to 125, I think to myself: if I make it to 200, I'll cash out. Or it drops to 100, then I'll cash out too.

And yes, Lightning Roulette, Crazy Time, the new variants like Red Door etc. are also quite appealing to me.
Andy is always the best host there!

How stupid can you be to gamble away so much money?

Oops... wasn't actually finished yet 😄

By the way, I know all the Live Casino games and I also think they came onto the market in 2020, can that be?

I also noticed at the time that high multipliers were played out very often at the beginning, which you can only dream of today!
I suspect this was intentional to get people hooked!
If you've played crazytime more often, you know that the reels don't spin at all in real life but are simply a computer simulation! Accordingly, a probability calculator selects either the Multiplier with the lowest or highest probability of a hit! And the wheel is not braked but the stop arrow is replaced regularly because it wears out after a certain time and the more worn it is, the more arbitrary the results are!
The same with the lightning!
And strictly speaking, this is not cheating as long as nothing is manipulated.

I think this has happened to most players albeit with less large sums. What adds to it is the panic of the bank payout etc. You are restless etc. I once paid out 54000 and my God was that a stress ... not only the fear of not getting the money, also the bank or public prosecutor's office can make trouble with such a sum.

How bored can someone be to unload their unconstructive brain junk every time?

Then one could say the same about you. Oh yes, this is where the squad of addicted no-border connoisseurs meets, sorry for the disturbance

That has absolutely nothing to do with your opinion Donnie!

Don't argue
It's just money that comes and goes but the experience remains 😁
The stupidest can get rich and the smartest can go broke in the end, other things control us that make us do stupid things, I'm sure everyone does stupid things sometimes more sometimes less

I can remember that I once gambled away €200 and everything again with free spins without depositor without Max CashOut. I told myself then that it was absolutely stupid to gamble it away. That's exactly what it is, a mixture of naivety, greed and gambling frenzy. The normal player sets himself limits on where he wants to go. If he gets over it, he pays out and leaves the rest. Where do you want to go with the money? To the billion mark?

Who or what tells us when we should stop?
I swear, I would probably have already paid out somewhere between €60 and €2000!
Accordingly, I'm far too shitty to be able to make a big win!
The highest I've ever cashed out was €1500!
And we all know it...you set yourself a limit "1000€ I pay out" but once it's running and you've come fully easy to 6000€, you don't really notice that the payout is over and only realize much later how much you've gambled away again...then of course you want to get back to 6000€ and have to keep investing!
Most of the time you end up playing as if you were in a tunnel!

Maybe you should just remember that Gambling addiction is a disease for a reason and quitting as an addict, no matter what's on the clock, is simply extremely difficult. That doesn't apply to everyone here, but certainly to many.

That's stupid yes... But it's an addiction. Injecting heroin is also stupid, smoking too... yet very few people stop... that's why I don't attach any importance to these comments 😏
