    these you tubers are posting their big wins only ! we never get to see their big losses though - they may post one or two during their sessions but what are they actually walking out with at the end of the day ? Who knows . . and think about when they brag about their Free Play . . how much money you gotta lose just for $10-$100 or so in Free Play (and you know its not Free) , yah know ! im not a max better like the name implys (i occasionally bet max only when im feeling it) . watching the you tubers gets me pumped up but i always expect to lose and Hope to Win ! Good Luck !

    Iíd like to add that as an online gambler, I watch Twitch/YouTube streams of Canadians and Europeans gambling and some bet as much as 10 Euros at a time. I talk with one of the more popular ones online occasionally via Twitter. Heís a nice dude from Sweden. Americans canít play these slots except in New Jersey or through VPN and bitcoin. I have to not be tempted by both online and brick & mortar casinos. Holding out well so far. If I can get to tomorrow morning, I can get to Easter no problem.

    You definitely can't make a living off youtube videos from slots. Personally, I just try to take videos when I think it's going to be a particularly good bonus. But I don't go to the casino regularly enough to have a hit channel like a lot of people on YouTube that are doing it to make real income. Honestly, I do wonder how they can afford to gamble enough to make that many videos.

    I think on average the ad revenue for me is like $1-2 for every 1,000 views. Obviously that won't cover the cost of gambling unless you're really really lucky. But it is cool that it still can generate revenue even years later. I have one video I took a couple of years ago that still makes me like $50 a year.

    I donít know how some people donít get tired of high-stakes gambling. It seems like theyíre only happy when theyíre in a casino, shooting more footage for their channels.

    I feel that for some of them, gambling is their relief from something really gnawing them from the inside.

    I have posted this before but will post it again. The first 5 months I played slots at Foxwoods and Mohegan I played almost all 1c and in the process of loosing 30k, I never had a win greater than $800 and that was one time. I won $200-350 about a half dozen times. Betting max was almost always a disaster too. I did not generate amazing perks or coin in loosing that 30k either. I saw maybe 4 or 5 hand pays the entire time in 5 months on the 1c games!!! I was playing in 2 very busy casinos too!

    I watch these 1c big win bonuses and I am floored lol I say to myself "where is that casino?" These guys have to be loosing big on these games. This is why i give JFK a LITTLE more credence with his more cautious approach but he is still not showing us everything. But I see his cautious high limit approach as having a far greater shot at leaving the casino ahead if he is lucky and "doesn't get greedy". However you have to hit and run. He is also right about them making us wait too long for the hand pays, especially when asking for a check.

    But for folks who are truly playing for sport/fun, it would be nice to see the bank rolls last longer. Since most folks enjoy the more visually appealing 1c video slots the only way to lengthen the bank roll time is to low roll and in my experience playing 1c which is considerable, low rolling almost always seemed to lead to more bonuses and slightly better line hits.


    I have earned all my better perks playing higher limit but not everyone has the stomach or bankroll for it. I have played long hard and often foolishly over the past two years but the 1c losses to this day are by far the greatest losses and least amount of play I have had for my casino dollar. Most of the bigger losses or loosing streaks I have had in higher limit have all been chasing $5 Top Dollar/Double Top Dollar fantasies after watching someone get 10-20 bonuses in short order lol. The $1 Triple and $5 Triple Diamonds (both of which I have played ferociously at times) have rarely ever produced for me either for reasons beyond my comprehension. I have to add too that one slot youtuber AKAFUJI seems to be incredibly lucky with the $1 Triple Diamond/$1 Triple Double Diamond games. I have never experienced play on those like she has lol. Maybe its that San Manuel casino???

    Well said, my luck at Foxwoods and Mohegan on 1c machines sounds a lot like yours. I posted in another thread about my win loss statements earlier today. I had never really looked at them before, but I needed them to try and solicit comps from Vegas casinos in advance of my trip a couple weeks ago. They were alarmingly bad, and that might not even do it justice. I really need to start playing higher limit for the better payback percentages. The problem is, the true high limit machines(not adjustable lightning links etc) are pretty basic and I get bored easily.

    yeah that is what most players seem to say, I have a chip in my brain for more "rustic" things lol but I would love to play more 1c stuff but I am just so snakebitten.....on the whole I have been kind of snake bitten on the $1 3 reels too (maybe just exceptionally unlucky)

    Last Friday at Foxwoods I had lost $1300 or so on mostly $1 and some 25c stuff, so I went into the high limit and started working a bank of $10 2 coin double/triple diamonds....after loosing another $1500 I started to see one of them providing some more solid play and eventually hit for $1800 so now I was down 1k so I started working a bunch of $5 machines and after giving $500 back hit $1500 on a 2 coin triple stars...at this point after tipping the attendants and state taxes I was only down about $200 for the day....I have had similar outings like this so many times and the road to recovery can be bumpy to say the least....of course it could have gone the other way and all been horrible but once you get to a certain point of losses on lower denoms there is almost no chance of recovery from those lower denoms

    going from being way down to only being a little down was like winning but it certainly isn't for everyone...the other point to make is it all depends upon what you want from the casino....like for me it is 1.5 hours each way to either of them so quickly hitting something in high limit is not going to be satiating unless it's huge and loosing one's bankroll really fast is the worst and a real risk of high limit especially if you don't move around which is why I normally start low rolling and most of the time I am just looking to play for hours on the lower denom stuff with minimal loss
