  1. Well all that's been said doesn't make sense does it, and it's not fair on the punter either. I mean the government have restricted FOBT stakes but on line you can bet what you like but one medium has the potential to pay huge jackpots and the other is limited to £500. Its not as if on line gambling is hard to access, Everyone has a mobile phone. So if a punter wants to bet with larger stakes it's the easiest thing in the world to do. I don't buy the money laundering argument either. I have an account with PP, it comes with a chip and pin cash card, I can use it at the "hole in the wall" use it in shops, I can pay money onto it in their shops, I could get by without any of my gambling money showing up going in or coming out of my bank account. The whole high street betting shop limit stinks. This didn't come in to being from the government acting alone, I can't even begin to imagine how many meetings there wer between the government and the bookies, its a deal. I can just imagine the bookies saying to the ministers about how many shops will close and how many people will lose their jobs, and all the tit for tat offers being banded back and forth before the £2 limit was agreed on. The facts ARE, limiting Fobts to a £2 stake will not help solve problem gambling, you can bet the same stake on line as in the Bookies if you want to, on line slots have the potential to give far bigger payouts, AND THAT IS NOT FAIR. Not a single thing done by the government helps the punter. 

  2. Hi guys, I've spent a great deal of time recently watching dozens of slot streamers on Twitch. I've watched all these streamers play the same games over and over and learnt a lot. You get to know which games are hard to bonus and those that are more frequent, games that play well in the base game and those that have features in the base game. As an example, Genie Jackpots and Goonies give you an extra chance to bonus in base game features. An important fact is that I see people playing £4 & £5 stake regularly and when they do get a bonus they very seldom pay more than a FOBT jackpot of £500 which can be won at £2 stake. What the on line games can do however is completely go off their tits and pay monster amounts in the bonus and sometimes in the base game. 

    A question seldom asked and one that puzzles me is this, a £2 bet on the horses in the Bookies can in theory pay mega money so now that the FOBT machines have been limited to £2 maximum stake, then why are their jackpots limited to £500? A FOBT jackpot should be able to pay the same as the on line game don't you think. 

    I'm all for capping gambling limits but they shouldn't cap the amount you can win on bookie slots. By doing this people are only being encouraged to gamble on line because the returns potential for the "monster wins" is available but the stake limit is much higher, 100x and 200x the stake of a FOBT is not unusual.

    I just don't see why you can play for example, Fishing Frenzy for a £2 stake on line and win say £1200-£1500 and play the same game in the Bookies knowing your max win can only be £500????

  3. I cannot stand this foul mouthed little toerag and after watching his win from yesterday I like him even less. 

    It just goes to show that when your lucks in, its in. 

    It was bad enough having to listen to that squeaky sewer of a mouth but  now you can see him as well. 

    Do you know what, good luck to him. As much as I can't sta d him it's nice to see people win and gives hope to the rest of us. 

    I'm going to bed!! 


  4. NEVER EVER EVER chase your losses. If you ENJOYa gamble leave it alone for a little while. Next time deposit smaller amounts and if your up for example £100- £200 withdraw it there and then. By all means leave your original stake to play again. I find it harder to win after a cash out so leave it for a day or two. 

  5. I've Been chat banned on Casino Daddy Permanently, for making a joke criticising the music the guy was playing. No foul language, just a quip saying he needs to get real, playing some house music. Up came the message "you are permanently banned from chat" I'm pretty sure a certain person/persons have "had a word" I'm pretty sure the Mods. on one account are active on "others" who shall remain nameless. I know I'm critical at times of streamers but I like to think it's mainly constructive criticism. "apart from Nick slots" the man who can't put a sentence together without a deletive expletive between every other word. 

    I once came home from work when I was in my late teens and had to pluck up the courage to tell my dad I'd got the sack at work. He smiled, put his hand on my shoulder and said "son, it's an honour to get the sack, any idiot can pack his job in" 

    So I'll accept the honour from Casino Daddy.

    It’ll pay for my weekends racing this weekend on my first visit of the season to Cheltenham 👍

    Would you like me to mark your card 😂😂😂😂😂

    I was ill all day yesterday so I texted my neighbour upstairs if he was going to the bookies and could he put a bet on for me as I was too ill to leave the house. He texted back saying he was in the bookies and I should text him my bet. I texted the race meetings and times and the horse number to avoid confusing him. Of the four in my lucky 15 I had 1 winner at 10/1, that was the ONLY ONE HE SCREWED Up, I texted number 5 and he wrote down the 6 horse. I went to his flat in the evening and instead of collecting £31 I had to hand over £15. The 3 losers he got right!!! Says it all really. 

  7. I've been practically glued to twitch over the last 6 weeks watching all the streamers strut their stuff. Practically  all of them are boring beyond belief, most of them are playing music which makes me want to slam my head in a car door. Nearly all of them constantly use language that would make a sailor blush. There's a deal of witty banter in the chat which I like to get involved with, it can be a laugh a lot of the time. some are dedicated bonus buyers others prefer to grind it out. It's only my opinion but the two stand out streams are Casino Daddy and Chipmonkz for entertainment.   Casino Daddy is the more professional of the two but unlike Chipmonkz they don't seem too bothered if they win or lose. There are two others I'm so disgusted with by what they do and what they stand for I'm not even going to mention them. They know who they are. Chipmonkz had a little "dig" at me the other day for remarks I've made about him here in the past. I think they were fair comments but credit where its due, they've got much better lately. Its also nice to know they're aware of the topics on here. 😁

    Anyway, the main point of this post is to say that constantly watching different streams teaches you a hell of a lot. 


    Varying bet size is no bad thing but don't think you have to bet big to win big. 

    Considering the max payout on a FOBT is £500 not many bonuses pay that much.
