    Watched too much YouTube and chased handpays

    YouTube started filling my recommended videos list with a bunch of slot play. Got me really pumped before my last trip, thinking "hey I can do that!"

    There are not as many big bonuses on Walking Dead, Buffalo Gold, or Dancing Drums as the internet would lead you to believe. And max bet on those machines bleeds pretty darn fast.

    Booked my biggest loss to date in a one night trip! Think I'll stop watching those videos!

    I agree, those videos...while I enjoy watching them...give a sense of confidence that we can repeat the same. I haven't been for a while now, mainly because I just don't have that kind of disposable income at this time.

    I would love to go an hit some of the bonuses they do, don't even have to be hand pays, just to come out a winner every now and then. Losing every single time gets old.

    Those You Tubers only post their winnings but you know they suffer great losses too . . bragging about their "Free Play" but just realize how much one has too lose just to get lets say $10 in "Free Play" which to me is not "Free" . . nothing is "Free" without a cost . . they post winnings because no one wants to see the devastating losses . . I admit I do watch those winning vids , it motivates me to go but at the same time I Expect to lose but Hope to Win maybe not a JP but a decent amount of money that makes feel good enough to walk away ! enough said and Good Luck !

    I only watch them for entertainment value. Most of the wins come after huge donations lol

    Sorry for your loss ! I am one of those people that posts winning videos but I also post losing videos occasionally . I never bet big tho I’m a low roller . You have to realize that people do win but at the end of the day unless you hit a wide area progressive the casino will always win . People complain I don’t bet enough in my videos but I don’t care I’m having fun . Best of luck and don’t let others influence you .
    Be sure to check out my channel. Some fun wins:

    OH....do I relate to this thread.
    I was traditionally a low roller....went with my meager budget and stuck to it.
    Then I saw all the Youtubers....and their wins. So, I uped my bets...went over my budget. And guess what. All I did with multiply my losses.

    What I don't get is where do they get this money? I am not a poor person, but I see the $20+/spin! That would be 5 spins for me for the day.

    Yet (I won't say the name) bets $20 on DaVinci Diamonds....says "bonus me".....and voila....there's a bonus.

    I gotta stop watching those "fairy tales" and think what each bonus really cost her.
