What goes up :(


Recommended Posts

Today for the first time in a very long time it dawned on me! I’m spending way too much time and money on FOBT’s.

I recently had an amazing run and made a post saying It was time to take a break. That was best part of a month ago. 

Today I ended back up at square 1. £5000 won and lost in a month 😞 

Maybe posting this and saying it out loud will help me stick to my guns and give up for a while! God knows I need to 😕

Ouch…. I suppose it could’ve been worse, but it could certainly have been a lot better. Perhaps it’s time to take a break for a bit, if it were me then I’d be tempted to chase my losses and we all know where that leads….

Thats how casinos and bookies work. Ignore all the old "bet responsible and gamble aware" bollocks they just want to get you hooked. I gamble far more than i should but when i get a big win I cash it out and spend it. I have my 80" tv and the car i drive and my bed and sofa all from wins last year. Now i could have saved for them instead of using the money to gamble but at least im enjoying the winnings. My next win is going to pay for a new Android head unit for my car and the installation. £65 an hour to fit car audio equipment and theyre fully booked until the end of the month.???

Im definitely in the wrong business.

Chin up mate I know the feeling only takeaway is it was winnings you lost but I know that’s no solace . Just got to call it quits now mate and self exclude like I did . Fobts never end well I’m afraid

Ell I bought my Android head unit for the car and decided that rather pay those nimrods £65an hour plus VAT?? I'd have a go at installing it myself. The company estimated 3-4 hours for the installation, it took me just over an hour.

It probably does take those nimrods 3-4 hours in fairness as they're not usually particularly qualified to actually fit those units.

A good professional stereo installer (or handy home installer) would take 1 to 2 hours to do that same job.

I haven't fitted stereos for years (about 25 years actually) but I suspect that it's fundamentally the same, except maybe there are more wires coming out of the unit than there used to be. Inputs used to be -: Power, ground/negative, Line in, speaker in.    Outputs were: Remote power, Lineout, 8 speaker wires four positive and four negative, aerial (for electric aerials lol)

I've got a feeling it's moved on since then lol.
