#1.    When you are gambling and winning, at what point do you stop?  Obviously when you are losing and you are out of money you have to stop, but there is no magical bell that goes off when you have won the most you can at a particular machine or table game, therefore how do you determine when you have won enough and why? 


Reader Poll Replies: 

*  When I'm above the invested amount I pick an amount between the amount invested an what I've won. If I reach that point I cash out - If I win more I raise that number.  Gerald Relyea

*  Anytime I get twice my money I get up and go have a drink.  Bonnie W.  

*  I have a system that works like this, take 50% of the amount of money you allow yourself to spend at any one table.  If you get to the 50% profit you continue playing until you get tired of winning or until you slip back to on 20% profit.  That way you will walk as a winner, but have the opportunity to make a big killing.  Walter S. TX

I guess the time to quit is when either the machine or table has gone cold. get out or else the winnings will turn to losses  Watcherboy

*  Never is winning money not fun so you never quit winning and you always want more.  G.J. Smith

*  I set a definite limit on losses and will not exceed that for a given session. Then I usually set an estimated time limit. When the cards or dice are running "hot" I will stay with the table until I sense the luck is shifting to the house. It is all luck, superstition, and a little bit of sound money management to try to overcome the house edge and come out a winner. Two of my pet superstitions are to never quit in the middle of a hot shoe in a 21 game or leave during a shooter"s good run on a crap table.  HBHWANGO

*  I budget a certain amount for each time I sit down to play. If I double that amount, I walk away.  ArubaKT

* Since I seem to loose more than I win, my rule is that when I get 50% ahead of my original investment in the table game or slot machine, I quite.  Sondra K.  IL

*  Maybe this is a bad idea, but I stop or quite a winning streak when i have my original money back plus a few dollars, about 20% more.  I figure that I cannot make more than 4% interest per year, what is wrong with making five times that in a few minutes or hours.  Kenneth May
