Bookies or Online? - General Discussion - Stop and Step

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see what you guys think in terms of which way to gamble.

I've done my tits in on the bookies FOBT's, but i set my bank card (Halifax), to refuse any gaming transactions, so i can't open an online casino account. 

I can cancel it but they need 48 hours cooling off time. So...........am i better off sticking to the bookies or shall i try online? Anyone got any advice?

Ps-  i'm a gambler so please don't tell me to do neither. Thanks

Best to stick to cash and the bookies, maybe a few bets to fill the week away from the slots. Online promises a lot but most players never stay ahead, often the casino conspires to rip my balance after giving me a decent win. There are too many sites online, even with deposit limits, and it gets into your life whenever you put the computer on. The worse thing is having a massive win because the slot takes it all back gradually, streamers do this all the time.

Stop and step practically wins on Tues and weds videos in the bookies and arcades every week (well 9 out of 10 times anyway).   

That's a load of nonsense, I win and lose just the same as everyone else, I just push the gambles more so the wins and losses are more lumpy. The last 9 bookies/arcade videos were 7 losses and 2 wins.

Don't gamble online it's far more dangerous than playing in the bookies an arcades, withdraw cash don't take your bank card,I think when you have cash an your putting it in machines realization kicks in, it's a click of a button online is to easy to accessible,I also think arcades are better than bookies, I'm wondering if you have done online gambling before due to the fact you have asked your bank not to allow it,I have played online for years an have now joined gamstop, gambling is  a downhill spiral that causes nothing but heartache an misery, I've now got to learn to live without it after 10 years is no easy task,I have had alot of fun with it, alot of tears with it,an at time's have felt suicidal, it's been my best friend as well as my enemy.
