Always a beauty of a question. We'll see how many WAIT to read other posts, just so they 'FIT IT'. (lol) Anyways..... Lets say I walk into the casino with $500, I play roulette. I get it up to $800 (total). I eventually leave with $600 (total). Did I lose money that day? Ken

Opinions will always vary on this topic, so here's my two cents worth. I'm up $100.

Any money you are playing with is YOURS, not the casino's.

Not arguing, only playing both sides. What do you say if you hear....when you went over the $500 you walked in with, that is NOW your money. You have free will to walk out the door. Some might say you lost $200 on the day. Ken

I recall that to friends as a $100 win. Whatever the result is at the end of the day, or the end of that casino session is the result.
If I won $300 from 8:00 to 10:00 , lost $500 from 13:00 to 14:00, and won $50 from 20:00 to 21:00 my result is a $150 loss. Anyone who spins the results any differently is fooling themselves about their results.
Always borrow money from a pessimist; They don't expect to get paid back ! Be yourself and speak your thoughts. Those who matter won't mind, and those that mind, don't matter!

All tallies should only be done outside the Casino.

Well I don’t play roulette, but it’s every simple question that should be obvious to every player out there in a casino! “You lost money”

To begin with it’s your money as soon as you win it, this is what 98% of all players do not understand. Winning at any casino game is all about your betting strategies you use to win! Once the chips are pushed to you when you are playing roulette, they are now yours and should not go back to the casino.

All your play should have a constantly changing loss limit, so you do not give money back. You just won $300, and it’s ok to stay if you are having a good day, however you now have a $50 or $100 loss limit! Once you hit that limit it’s time to run as fast as you can out of the casino!

Ok I didn’t win big money, then on the other side of the picture I did win $700 or $750 depending what limit you set. There is always the next time you are going to play, walking with the max profit that you can get, this is what everybody should be looking for.
Greed will cost you money in the long run, take the smaller profit and add it to your bank roll, you just lived to play the next day!

To start with, the longer you stay playing at any game, the bigger chance you have of losing!
Note, all my post start with this is just my opinion...! You do good brada ..! superrick Winning comes from knowledge and skill when your betting and not reading fiction http://procraps4u2.myfanforum.org/index.php ...

You make a good point. It can feel like I lost in that example.

I keep records of all my play and the easiest way for me to do that is to record wins and losses. That's why I call it a $100 win.

I propose a different analysis from the casino view. If anyone walk out of your property with more money than she had arrived it would be certainly a casino loss! Of course in a determinated time the casino was losing more but at the end the player was still a winner! This theory of yours would be the same as saying that it is impossible to "win" money at the stock market in the long term...
