No More Deposit Bonuses For Me By Amberly Ashton I love playing my online slots but lately I've been really reflecting and it has occurred to me I haven't had a withdraw in almost two years. Either my luck has went drastically down hill, I don't make the right game choices or just maybe it has to do with the fact I always take a deposit bonus. I can't control having the winning touch but I can switch the games I play. But why would I want to stop playing the games I enjoy due to a "run of bad luck"? I'm not going to. Instead, I'm going to try something different. I am going to completely stop using deposit bonuses from this day forth. I know this goes against what I have said in the past but I think I will give this new strategy a shot. What do I have to lose? Before, when making a deposit, I would always prepare and find the best bonuses available. I wanted a larger bank roll then my mere deposit gave me. When I play a free no deposit bonus I don't play the same as I do with my own money. For one, it is usually a small amount so I challenge myself to play smarter. Second, I'm more aware of my balance. When I take a deposit bonus I feel like a fat kid in a candy store. I want to sample all the goods and money is no object. That's how I bet as well. I am careless because I see triple digits in my balance and think I can't lose. How many times have you made a deposit and hit a really fantastic win in the first few minutes of playing and end up losing it all because you didn't make playthrough? Usually, when I play I am going to do either really well in the beginning or the lack of luck then, will lead me to gambling wipe out. I'm going to really start monitoring myself from here on out and resist the strong temptation of using deposit bonuses. The major advantage would be that I won't have to wait and make playthrough anymore. If I hit a truly awesome bonus I can stop right then and there and take the money and run. I will be in control of my destiny and not have an enormous number hanging over my head that I have to beat before I can actually win. You aren't offered a deposit bonus at land casinos so why take them when you play online? My future gaming is going to be in my control. No more deposit bonuses for me! Now when I deposit, I either win or lose and I can now cash out as soon as I feel the urge. End of story.
