Ever since gambling was created, players have been developing different strategies to help them manage their bankroll and win.
Some strategies proved to be more, some less efficient, while some performed terribly, although even that didn’t stop punters from using them.
The biggest problem with such strategies is the fact they cost money. Well, online gambling or in a real casino generally cost players money, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be so expensive. One of the strategies you should avoid is chasing losses, as you’re probably going to end up losing even more money.
Chasing losses is when you continue to gamble hoping you’ll be able to return the money you’ve already lost. On many occasions, players will go on believing they’ll win in the end, spending more money to reach that goal.
Although many players claim they have a feeling they’re close to scoring a big win, chasing losses is only the beginning of a downward spiral that is a clear sign a person has lost control of his or hers gambling.
Chasing losses is often accompanied with a rollercoaster of emotions, from anxiety to worry and frustration. As you try to get even, you rationalize your losses, and this becomes the primary goal of your gambling, taking away all fun out of it.
