    It really depends on the day. I normally play casinos online, something like Chances are 50/50 but at least it is not a scam website.

    You may notice Slink that there are no Casino ads on this website for that very reason, you may as well just do the lottery.

    I try to not get tie up to win all the time usually this mentality makes me lose even more.

    Dunno where I stand.
    I'm not an impulsive gambler, when it comes to sports betting I really need to think it through.

    But I've become more impulsive the more I've got into crypto, I think the reason for that is that with crypto you never lose the lot but can and I have lost hell of a lot, so it can make you a bit blase.

    When It's shit or bust I am a lot more cautious.

    Well after at least 7 years of making a profit, I can't seem to do fuck all right since lockdown and I'm firmly in the B section for this year- losing. Wish I could put my finger on why but I can't. I mostly back horses every day - and young lightly raced horses at that so I suspect it may be something to do with everyone putting out their higher class horses at the same time due to having to hold back for three months, combined with the new system for giving them a handicap mark which means that they have fewer runs and less evidence to base their initial assessments on.

    Fingers crossed it's just a lockdown issue and my magic will return but I'm a serial loser on the football and the football season is about to start again so 2020 is looking like a bid red blob on my record.

    Actually, what am I thinking, make that at least 11 years. It was either 2008 or 2004 that I last made a loss. And that includes laying Leicester to win the Prem for a lot of money and losing a lot when Liverpool fucked it up that time. Happy days

    Bit of a shitty start to the season and going back to last January when your trying to make a profit over a year long betting,this is after a sizeable win in September on the golf,which put me ahead,but now,im back down mid November.
    Football - poor with virtually few returns,even from mainly double and treble betting.
    Horse Racing - dreadful,with only a couple of minor returns from multiple bets.Singles virtually nothing.
    Darts - some painful loses from players giving up some goods leads.
    Golf - Im well in profit , after a sizeble winner,and some place money,but that has been wiped out by the other sports.Time to slow it down and reasses were my betting is going come the start of January.

    Yeah, always the best thing to do to just take the foot off the pedal and, as you say, reassess. When I'm going through a particularly bad patch (two so far this year) I cut back all the shite I'm not 100% convinced are good bets at good value and I draw down my stakes to a couple of quid a time and then build up from there.
