A Guide for New Online Gamblers

November 15, 2017 Test 0

Having the means to play with your friends living in far flung places, or even total strangers, is something that only online gambling can provide. While games of chances are exciting, the way you approach online gambling sites should be left to anything but.   While there are some differences between land based and online casinos, there are some similarities in the way you should handle them. For instance, money management; there are several ways to go about caring for your bankroll, but one good advice is to set aside the amount you will deposit and stick to it.   What we are suggesting is that per gambling session, you should use only the amount you currently have in your account. If you put in $400 for this casino session, do not add to it. Another tip is that if you win, set aside that money and do not include it in your account, because chances are you will end up gambling it too.   Whether you are gambling online or in a casino, it is advised by some to avoid drinking too much. The tolerance level varies with each individual of course, so take only what you know you can handle. Games like Poker require concentration and focus, and you cannot afford to lose track of the proceedings there.   If you have previous experience playing in casinos, then adjusting to online gambling would only take a short while. If you have never had any prior experience, then it would be a good idea to wager with play money in the beginning. Yes, you are eager to win, but it is important to simply get a feel for the game first. Once you are comfortable, then you can start playing for the real thing.   While player reading may be more difficult online, there are those who will be able to detect that you are a new player, and may try to intimidate you. Just remain calm, and stick to your strategy.   As in land based casinos, there will be times when you will lose, and you will often hear from others who say that online gambling sites are rigged and that you can never win. That is not true. Study after study has shown that player winning and losing numbers are the same with casinos that are not based online. Just accept the fact that the flop did not go your way today, and that you will be able to recover the next time.   The key to winning in online gambling is being patient and learning to strategize, just like in “real” casinos. Those who claim that they cannot win on the Net have not played enough. Any veteran online gambler will tell you that wining is not just possible, but happens as often as it does anywhere else.   Gambling online will no doubt increase in popularity in the years to come, as people become aware of the pleasures of virtual casinos. For those new […]

Gambling and Temper

April 15, 2017 Test 0

Popular notions go that gambling create bad tempers in gamblers. Movies often picture them in brawls with other people, especially their spouses. Does gambling really stimulate bad temper in gamblers? If so, how do we stop gambling from eating up the mood of gamblers? The culprit really is not gambling per se but how people take winning and losing in gambling. It’s mishandling stress. Anybody in any activity who fails to handle stress properly will end up being bad tempered. Even saints, being non-gamblers, would explode with bad temper if they let stress and work pressure get the better of them. The only consideration is that, gambling causes stress more than any other activity. Why? Here are some facts: Card game gamblers sit all day without much physical activity. Others standing up also stress out and strain the legs and feet. Dormancy plus gambling distress can be a health time bomb. Gambling stress can build up in the nervous system and trigger a regular hot temperament. This can manifest even in non-gambling situations. Once the bad temper becomes habitual due to improper gambling stress coping, the notion is enforced—that gambling creates bad temper in gamblers. The inordinate drive to win both elicits stress in wanting to win and in avoiding losing. Gambling is simple winning or losing, so each time gambling sessions are going, there’s a continuous gambling stress stimulated by this gambling drive. So what should gamblers do to get rid of bad tempers? Simple tips are below: Keep gambling as a hobby, not a vice. Enjoy what it results in, whether a win or a lost, and do not desperately desire to win. Winning is strategy and chance. It doesn’t rely on one’s desperation to win. Desperate or not, if one wins, one wins. As long as one maintains an attitude of neither wanting to win or to lose, gambling stress levels will be at normal range. Losing in gambling is bad but feeling bad about it won’t turn it into a win. Psychologists have been saying for years now that it is healthy to laugh at one’s own mistakes and foibles—losing included. Sometimes it’s hard to fight the temptation to hate the guy who’s making you lose. This is the number one stressor. The best defense against stress (and malice) is to laugh at one’s losing or bring a book of jokes along and read a line or two each losing time. When done with the book it’s quitting time. Gambling and stress concoct bad temper. But gambling with proper stress coping is a good hobby.
