How to make the most out of online gambling

One thing I’ve realized about online gambling is that few people actually enjoy doing it much. It might not make a lot of sense, but I’ll try to explain as well as I can to try and make it clearer for you. Basically, when you first find out about online gambling, and you try it out and like it, you get rather excited and you start playing a lot. At first you are really enjoying the online casino games, and the the excitement of knowing that you can win a lot, but it really isn’t so much about money as it is about enjoying yourself. You are actually enjoy the games in the same way as you would enjoy a game that doesn’t involve betting money.

It goes on like this for a while until you start building a habit of gambling. This habit does not necessarily mean a bad habit that turns in to a gambling addiction (you can read more about responsible gaming here!. There vast majority of people actually do manage to keep their gambling habits at a reasonable level, without ever getting into trouble. You do this by setting up clear rules for your gambling, such as to never bet more money than you can afford to lose, and to only play at specific times.

What I mean about “bad” habits is rather that you start playing as part of a routine. Say you always go and play a certain slot machine for £10, every other day between 18.00-19.00.  At first it’s a lot of fun as the game is new and exciting, but the more you do it, the more it become at bit blasé. It’s just like brushing you teeth, which you do so often it pretty much just becomes a means to an end. A lto of people just wait for the session to be over so that they can either cash out their winnings, or feel bad about losing their money.

What I suggest doing is instead is to start your casino session by directing all your attention to it. Choose your game carefully, and select a game that you haven’t gotten used to yet. Make sure to read the instructions of the game, and learn the paytable so that you now what you are looking for in each spin of a slot machine for example. Take focus away from the money side of it, and let that be in the background of your mind. See any winnings as a bonus, and instead focus on what you feel inside as you play. This way, it doesn’t really matter if you win or lose during your session. In each case, you are likely to have a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, which is really what makes you feel alive, and what I guess attracts people to gambling in the first place.
