What to do if you lost all the money in the casino
Scary? This is only the beginning of gambling addiction. The social bottom is at the end of the line without family and any friends. If you are just a new punter and you feel that you can't control yourself, you can cut yourself off from them entirely. If you are "on the way" already, I recommend you read this article to the end and read the related topics links at the bottom of the page. We will help you to stop.
Some players might wish to return all lost money trying to cancel the payment with credit card (to do a chargeback). What pitfalls wait the punter in this way, read on the next page:

You have no idea how you won that you lost
Perhaps, you've heard the saying "Beginners have luck". The players, who come to the casino for the first time, be sure to win. I don’t know, how it is implemented and what force causes the ball to fall in the desired number, and pokies give the bonuses, but it works. If you lost all the money on your first visit to the gambling house, you win much more. You are fortunate. You don't have the motivation to continue the game and try to win. You will be sorry only for the money. However, let's talk about the fact what has already happened in the punter lost all his money at the casino. What to do next?
What to do?
"All the money" – it sounds scary. Let's define what we're talking about the term "all": the frequency of your play, the degree of dependence, and will touch each of the cases separately:
- Lost all the money on the online casinos. I play for the first time. This case perfectly fits with the phrase "you are lucky that you lost." Believe that to win in this situation would be much more dangerous. Our brain is designed so that if you started to play casino for money - so are you a gambling man. To lose your entire balance, which was from your poker or betting in the bookmaker - this is not the collapse of the world. Even if you lost a large sum, the main thing that you should do is continue to play to win. This money is no longer belonging to you. The casino shouldn’t "return" you in the form of winnings. In any case, you will don’t need to borrow money or to enter additional funds to "fight back".
- Lost all the money on online casinos balance. I am constantly playing. Win/lose in equal measure. We have excellent advice for you if you are a regular player. At one time it helped me to deal with many problems. Take a sheet of paper and a pen. Don’t open Excel or Notepad on the computer. Write down today's date and the amount of loss. And write down the amount of the money that you deposit into your account. Don’t include bonuses or intermediate win. Write down your "clean" loss. Do this during a calendar month, and then summarise. These facts will help you to realise how much you lose in a month. Our consciousness is arranged so that, under the influence of the gambling addiction, we tend to think of just winning the money — the sensations that you experience from losing any amount stronger than the joy of winning the same value. Very often you will be "in the black" at the time of losing the next 100$. This will help you to tame the feeling of "revenge" and not make even ten deposits, losing them one by one. Usually, the money played in one or two sick days, when you get a terrible pokie or cannot stop after a big win.
- Lost all the money. Play a very long time. Play for the game. If you are aware of that fall into this group – it is not as bad as you think. The last stage of gambling addiction is a lie to yourself and all others. In your case, you need to limit access to the money. Set deposit limits in the online casino, look for no-deposit bonuses and play pokies for free, introducing that play for real money.
- Lost everything. There is nowhere to take. If you are at the end of the way, you need to stop and weigh what you have left — children, family, friends, parents. If all of these are absent, you feel free to contact the doctor. If there is – you must tell everything. Do not spare my feelings and don't try to justify it to myself. If you find support from your relatives, so you choose. If you refuse and pretend what they do with it, you can contact your doctor.
Gambling is like a Genie out of the bottle. Game dependence is often compared to alcoholism and drug addiction. In the minds of gambling addiction has a change and it increasingly difficult to control their actions and the reality surrounding him. You need to solve the problem now! Don't delay it "indefinitely". The loss of all the money it's not the end of your life, and it's not as bad as you are drawn now. The main thing is to draw the correct conclusions from the current situation, and something needs to change.
