I knew this day would come, that I would write a post informing the world that I had experienced a bad losing session but I did not expect that it would be under these circumstances. Last time I wrote a post, my Bet365 balance was up to £591 and I actually increased that further to around £750.
Feeling flush with my high balance at the end of a successful blackjack session, I decided to have a quick game of roulette but I ended losing some money and then losing control. My balance is now £279 – over £450 down on where I was at the highest point. Here is my current balance.
Having done well playing blackjack and increasing my balance to beyond my expectations, curiosity got the better of me which is why I decided to give roulette a try. I was only supposed to play it for 5 minutes and risk around £10. Instead I started a Martingale progression which I’ve done countless times with blackjack and I went on a bad losing run and carried on when I should have quit.
I have since been getting some practice in so that it doesn’t happen again although I think my best plan of action would be to stick to my original plan which is playing blackjack. Roulette clearly isn’t my game and this loss is a painful reminder for me.
Looking On The Bright Side
Since I originally started playing my balance is £500 better off than it was when I started. I’ve suffered a setback but it was a setback forged by my own recklessness and it was a mistake. It is a mistake I do not intend on making again and I won’t take my casino balances for granted.
My next plan of action is to grow my Bet365 balance back to where it was before my bad session and I will do this by using both a mixture of the progressive system and the Martingale which have both done well for me so far.
If I do stray to another game like roulette again after a good session, I will be sure to do it after a withdrawal rather than before so that if the temptation creeps in to chase a loss, I won’t have any money in my account to chase the loss with.
