Basically, everyone who lends money to another user here should be aware that this money can be gone. You can lend money, but like gambling, you should only lend money to other people here that you can easily afford to lose. This rule basically applies to the entire Internet but especially to gambling sites.
On gambling sites there are also gambling addicts. People who are either extremely addicted to gambling and therefore will do anything to get money in the short term. Or they have acutely pressing financial problems due to their Gambling addiction, for which they are looking for solutions and then ask other users here for money, which they cannot realistically pay back
I don't think that the users who ask for money here have the intention from the beginning not to pay it back but it will eventually and in most cases end up that way. For example, if someone needs to borrow 300€ and offers to pay it back in 50€ or 100€ increments, it will be hard for them (probably even without gambling addiction) to save that 300€. How hard must it be with a gambling addiction to keep it together for 3 or even 6 months and to pay the agreed installments on time and at the same time to fight against the gambling addiction?
One must always be aware of this before lending money! This applies not only to this forum, but it also applies to the private environment, if you lend money to players.
Personally, I have often lent money to other players and have - with one exception - only had bad experiences with it. It didn't matter if the player was wealthy or not so wealthy. I'll list a few examples of people I've lent money to in the last few years and never got it back:
- I lent €1,000 to a 43-year-old High Roller in the Stuttgart casino because he had exceeded the daily limit on his bank cards and wanted to gamble some more. At the time, I plundered almost my entire private account and told him so. But I was also sure that I would get it back a few days later. After all, the player earns 30,000€ net per month - which must actually be the case given his playing style. The end of the story was that the player was first "on a business trip" and then it kind of got lost. A year later, I still haven't received the money. Currently he has somehow severe problems with the tax office ...
- I also lent money to another player (I don't know how much it was but it wasn't that much). Anyway, at that time I also waited for months for the money. Then I had a lucky streak and this player, who never had money but was extremely addicted to gambling, that I give him the money because he can not pay it back anyway. Only a few days later this player hit a Jackpot of 20.000€ at William Hill. If that had been me, I would have voluntarily paid back the borrowed money and maybe even added another 100€ or 200€ to it - even if the person had more or less forcibly given me the money beforehand. However, nothing came from this player on a voluntary basis and I have but also no more nachgehakt.
- In casinos and gambling houses I used to give begging players 10€, 20€ or 50€ and let myself be softened. Mostly I gave the money away when I had a big win. The result was always that the person came back after 10 minutes and wanted to borrow money or have it as a gift.
- I once lent money to a player in the Stuttgart casino after a big win. The gambler was not rich. I would say upper middle class because her husband had a relatively good running business. She needed 500€ in the short term because she had to pay something but gambled away or otherwise burned the money she got from her husband. Her husband does not know that she goes gambling and I helped her to hide this by lending her the 500€. She even made a real personal loan agreement with me and told me that I would definitely get the money back because I would have leverage with her husband. The first two installments of 100€ were also paid but after that there was a problem in a month and she wanted to push, which I also accepted. Since then nothing more went on my account ...
- But the worst experience I had in Malta. When I won €6,000 on Lucky Ladys Charm at Dragonara Casino, a rather pitiful player came up to me and asked if I could lend him €50. He was crying so hard that he is so poor and also sick and won't gamble the money away that I lent him 50€. I also just wanted to have my peace after the Big Win and told him that the 50€ was a gift. Two days later I was with a Maltese buddy again in the Dragonara Casino. A few machines away sat the player to whom I gave 50€, as he talked with another old Maltese about me and somehow grinned so disgustingly dirty. My Malta buddy told me that the player was bitching about me. He said something like, "I gave the guy a good ribbing, said I really needed the money and he even just gave it to me."
The Malta buddy told me that the player was known to be mentally ill in Malta but well, I don't think that has anything to do with illness but rather assholishness. Anyway, I decided for myself not to lend money to any player anymore. It just doesn't do any good.
I can only give you the Tip not to lend money to players. You should also ask yourselves, why the one here in the forum relatively strange people must ask for money. I mean everyone has some friends who could help you out with amounts up to 500€ or 1.000€. You should ask yourself before borrowing money why the friends or relatives that everyone has, do not help the person out?
If you lend money to other players, then book it as a gift for you and if it comes back, then it is nice and if not, then it is disappointing but also not bad. Only lend money that you can easily afford to lose. I do not want to have to read here in the forum, the one or the other does not give me my money back ...
