One of the biggest problems of gamblers, be it online gamblers or casino gamblers, is knowing when to quit. I firmly believe that one of the qualities that a gambler must develop first even before the mastery of a game is self-control. There is no use being the best gambler out there if you don’t know when to say you’ve had enough, win or lose. Gamblers should know the maxim that if you play long enough the casino (or online gaming site) will always win.
Those are the odds of playing in a casino and the odds you have to contend with as a gambler. Some gamblers may think that they are immune from this, but no one is. With the rise in popularity of online gaming sites and online casino, knowing when to quit becomes a little harder. First, since you are usually playing at home, you are lulled into a certain complacency because you are not in a physical place for gambling but rather just in front of your computer. Second, since you are using your credit card instead of hard cash and/or chips, you can easily forget or even ignore how much you are losing. One thing you should train yourself to do is to set a goal for yourself, whether you are losing or winning. If you have achieved your targets for either one then quit. Say, you are up by 100 dollars, even if you feel that you are going to continue winning quit if the goal you’ve set is to win 100 dollars. The same goes when you lose, even if you want to recover your losses, if you have already reached the limit you have set for yourself in terms of losses then quit, absorb your loss, and fight another day.
