The amount of money you lose or gain defines how good or bad your gambling experience was. Let’s face it, majority of gamblers play first and foremost for the money. The fun, excitement, and entertainment parts are but secondary.
That is why every gambler is concerned just when the right time for quitting is? Is it the time when you are winning less, winning more, losing less, or losing more than your expected amount? Well, the truth is, there is no golden rule concerning that.
The best time to quit gambling, therefore, depends on your instincts. Be aware that playing longer, when you are already winning, will give out either of the two results. The first one is that you will win more and the second is that you will lose your winnings and probably eat out some of whatever remains in your bank roll.
In the end, it all boils down to the fact that when gambling, you have equal chances at winning and losing your bets. During some days when you are extremely lucky, you might hit a winning streak that never ends. Then again, no one in the world could ever foresee that happening.
Your gambling fate is as unpredictable as anybody else’s. Thus, the only key to avoid being broke is to learn proper money management. Managing your finances starts not when you are already sitting pretty at the gambling table. Your money limits must be set as you are going through the planning stage. Before you leave the house, make sure that you have planned how much money you are willing to lose and how much money you may want to win. Hitting close to both is a good sign that it is time to go home.
It is also important that you leave your check book and your credit card behind. If you manage to do this, you are taking away the temptation of over spending. When no extra money is accessible, you will have no choice but leave when you have used up your set budget.
It is different, however, when you are having fun. If you want to stay around the gambling hall for far longer than you should because you are having a good time regardless of how much you have earned or lost, you could. Just know the risks and be prepared for them.
In the end, proper money management is dependent on you and you alone. No amount of theory or system would be able to man your self-control.
