    Thanks again for all the support and ideas. I am still taking a two month break though, not from the forum, just the slots. I need to quit while I'm behind lol.

    Every time I lose I say that same thing Gene This year has been ok for me so far, but as someone else mentioned, I am trying to limit my visits and time of each visit, the WinnersBank has been a HUGE help to me, and I've stopped trying to convince myself that a non hitting machine is going to hit very soon (most of the time, this just does not happen). The local is going through growing pains ... they have started construction on the new part which will add 200 games but there is a noticeable difference in play recently. That has also helped as I do not want to drive 45 minutes one way to get to the next closest casino that does pay better.
    Reels, .02, .05, pennies ... I still say right machine right time is when you win ... and your luck will turn around Gene ... everyone's does eventually
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Hi GG,
    Sorry to hear about your recent trips. I read somewhere that you have had 19 losing trips in a row... that sucks! I wanted to ask if you have gotten up at all in those 19 trips? If I had 19 trips without even getting up I wouldn't want to play locally either. That's ridiculous. Personally I get up maybe 40% of the time but if I don't at least double my bankroll I find it hard to leave a winner. I think your luck is going to change soon. It's time!

    I think I will stay away from the casinos for a couple months until the Midwest M&G.
    Just noticed this thread, not sure how I missed it previously. Anyway I feel your pain. I've been on a big losing streak since last August. I have wins but the losses far outweigh them. Currently I have a few friends who are having the winning streaks of their lives this year but so far their luck is not rubbing off on me. Just goes to show that it's really not the type of slot so much we play as just pure luck that determines if we are winners or losers, IMO.

    sorry to hear about your streak; but that's what it is - a streak; slots,cards,dice...nature - is all about streaks; nature seeks 'average;' extremes don't exist long-term; now I suppose one could surmise the situation that 'I could be a loser 100% of the time, if somebody else wins 100% of the time' to create a balance, but 100% is the extreme - so this would be unlikely; patience; money management and discipline are required; patience; essential for successful gamblers; patience allows one to eventually be in the right place at the right time - patience leads to that AAAA hand; patience leads to that monster dice roll of 60 minutes; patience leads to that handpay...these don't happen every hand; they cant; that's why we live in / with streaks; sorry if this sounded preachy; just my personal ramblings; we've talked about this very topic 'round the campfire' with a bottle of Knob's Creek and this was the best we came up with for why we all had extended 'undesired' streaks...
    The beatings shall continue until the morale improves.

    Gene, I'm sorry you are having such a long losing streak. As you can see from this thread, you're not alone. I decided when the new year started I would keep a tally of my wins / losses. What a depressing decision that was! I lost thousands already this year and out of 4 trips, I've come home a winner one time. And by "winner", I mean I came home with $50 more than I went with. Very depressing. So please know you are not alone. I lost a lot of times before this year too, but I just wasn't keeping track so I don't know for certain how many times I lost.

    I think you are making a wise decision to stay away for a while. I'm not going as much as I used to either, mostly because it's just not fun losing all the time. I'm basically throwing hard earned money out the window and that just doesn't make sense. I hope yours, mine and everybody else's losing streak comes to an abrupt end and we all go on a massive, well-deserved winning streak!

    It's tough. I quit too after April is over for 3 months off. I won't miss it.

    I totally agree with Evoni. Winning involves being at the right place at the right time and playing the right bet.
