Today I bet & WON - Today I bought with WINNINGS thread - Today I received


Recommended Posts

 

In the spirit of the other thread from a few weeks back on gambling/casino losses.  

It came to light a good few of us here, have gambled, still like a gamble, used to gamble, have an occasional flutter

My long reply, gathered a good few likes/replies from others on how I have used buying gold to totally turn my life around and keep my gambling demons at bay for over a decade now

What is always preached, is don't let the bookie/casino have your winnings back when you win. Enjoy your winnings, something most gamblers fail to do

The spirit of this thread, I want to be, is once you've had a flutter, if it wins, you buy some precious metals with the winnings & share what you have done here with the forum

So it is converted from fiat debt tokens you can re-gamble with and your winnings are placed into precious metals you can stack/preserve wealth with

A combination of " Today I bet / Today I Won / Today I Bought / Today I received " thread, if you like

In the thread, post a photo of your


 

1. Photo of the Betting Slip / Screen grab of the bet / Screen grab of slots of the "Win Payout" (screen grab of slots win, fiat debt tokens paid from the betting shop in your hand, online betting account withdrawl screen, bank statment winnings deposit )

2.  A photo of the precious metals you purchased/received with your winnings showing Forum User name & date. (Precious metals shown is for the FULL amount of winnings you won)

 

Not sure if this will be a winner thread, but if I can get help folk with gambling issues to prevent further repeat losses or to preserve what winning they get. This has a chance of being a winner 

This is not an endorsement or encouraging any gambling in any way, just my little way to ask, if you having a gamble to keep you winnings you get in precious metals and dont give your winnings back.

(Mods feel free to delete this thread if you don't feel its appropriate or the majority think this to via the comments)

Yes true story, I was even up £600 at 1 point, closed my account as having to sell some gold now which hurts me more so staying well clear now.

Maybe interesting if people but on..... ‘today I lost’.   Will be bit of wake up call for some

No one would post on that thread CF because problem gamblers never brag about their losses. I'm of an age where I've seen 1st hand friends/acquaintances  trash their & their families lives through gambling.

The problem with common sense is, its not that common.

I lost about £12000 a few years ago through fruit machines/football/horses so know exactly how you feel. I have not gambled since and have cancelled all bookmaker accounts. You may get lucky the odd time but the bookies will eventually get it back.

I’ve not stacked any gold YET but that’s where all my spare cash will go once my gambling depts are all repaid. It’s been 3 years wasted.

This is my first post on this site and felt i needed to on this particular thread.

Good luck on the forum and glad to hear your gambling spree has finished.. Best wishes Karl

@Paul is that a screen shot of a win you had on the slots ?

i wish! no they are just random screen grabs from google images for the thread, they are not my own

A £5 accumulator or a random £20 straight win is about my limit to scratch my gamble itch these days.

Anything over an oz of silver gambled is pain if it loses to me now :(

I've mentioned before in another thread that I'm a horse racing system bettor. I've built a portfolio of horse racing stats and trends based systems. When the database I use finds qualifiers for each system I'm sent a daily list of horses to bet on. I then make those bets at a fixed amount, whatever the odds. Over the  years I've been doing it, I've not had a losing year. Defo losing days, weeks or months. Ups and downs, but the p&l goes up over the long run. 

The last few years I've skimmed winnings to pay for PMs. Basically every winning bet, I'll take £2 and allocate to pm pot. Then if I have a proftable day, I'll also skim approx 10% of that profit into that same pot. This builds me a little pm bank for future purchases. 

I could show some lovely winning slips (some over 100 at BFSP) but that represents less then 20% of my slips, most are losers! 

Only issue now is I have about 3 bookie accts left (in my dads name) as all mine, my wife and sisters named ones have been limited to pennies or closed. I've also taken a step back in last month or so due to work commitments (unable to put bets on) and using some of my betting bank for some other avenues. 

I do enjoy the challenge of beating the bookie and landing a nice price ggs winner. Hate favs. 

Enjoying my Gold & Silver stacking experience!

I don't generally play slots anymore because of that reason, I lost about 2-3k maybe 2 or 3 years ago but I think yesterday was the final nail in the coffin to stop. Could have used that money to overpay the mortgage :)
