Anyone gamble?

  1. I like to play roulette. I usually use a Martinegale betting system, but under the wrong circumstances it can wipe out your whole "account" in just a few bad spins.

    I'm curious if anyone here gambles, and if your money management systems in gambling have been affected at all by your experience trading.
  2. i only gamble at Texas and omaha...very rarely do i bet on sports and i never ever play any of the casino games..only poker and i never use the martingle technique on anything...just not me style..

    A modified Martingale, such as '21', which loosely follows a Fibonacci progression, is way nicer to your roll in an unfavorable game like Roulette. You lose your money way slower.
  4. Other than poker, is any online casino game actually beatable over a long period of time? I was under the impression that every other casino game has a negative expectancy. It just seems like you are defeated before you even begin.

  5. I only practice on free online games. Here is a free roulette simulator (use Internet Explorer if it doesn't work in Firefox).

    The table has a limit of $1,000 per bet, so I usually use $5 bets with the Martingale system:
  6. I play craps at live casinos. Great game for traders!!!!
