    Roulette machines


    0 Not allowed!
    Was in the old bookmakers at lunchtime and had a go on the roulette machine. I was operating at small stakes (but still turned £2 into £17) but the guy next to me I reckon must have spunked a grand on it.

    So instead of biggest wins, what is the most you have lost in one day at the bookies, casino etc

      Never lost more than £25 in a session at the dogs or the casino, as thats all I take to bet with, once its gone its gone. I don't break into beer money for ANYTHING.

      The It box Roulette machines at William Hills are the best although the classic Roulette on the cash quests machines is quite good. I have seen blokes spunk hundreds on these machines probably done about £100 once or twice myself shocked to see casino croupiers play themone old tall guy who works down the Grovsner by the pier had a go at me in Ladbrokes in London Road when I went to play 'his' machine whilst he was geting more funds from the cash point then started scratching around for coins when the cash point has obviously said no.

      Biggest loss was 1K US. 16 hour session at the craps table. For my money I got the biggest hangover from "free" beer I have ever had.

      Thankfully that was a one off and I learned my lesson about not going back to the cash machine. Now I leave my cards at home and when the cash is gone its gone.

      mmmmmmmmmm free beer!!!

      Single bet - probably £2000 on an NBA double. One bet won, the other lost by a single point.

      Casino - probably about £1200 one in Bristol.

      Most sickening - losing all my gambling and spending cash on my 2nd night in Vegas on a shocking roulette run. Had another 3 days and nights to go...

      Lost £300 on Bet365 roulette a few months back. Not as bad as it sounds though as I had got it up to £300 from a £10 deposit using the "push the zero" method.

      I just can't drink when I play - decision-making goes to shit and I had a very similar experience to Bozza in LV. The first time.

      What is cool is to have the winnings in your pocket and then play for small stakes and THEN drink the free booze. does not happen as often as i would like!

      My stakes grow with my winnings but not matching so I walk away well up after the biggest loss(If that makes sense), which is when I stop.


      If I dont win its £5 to 10, biggest single loss when being £500+ up was £50.
