    Hi Andy50,

    Yes! This topic is more than welcome. We actually published an article on BetStop - The National Self-Exclusion Register recently:

    My number one rule for gambling is to borrow the expression from microeconomics and "think at the margin."

    If I deposit $100 and soon find myself down to $65, I don't try to win back my money to return to $100. I instead bet to try to end up with more than $65.

    If I deposit $100 and soon find myself up to $120, I don't treat the $20 profit as free money to bet with wildly. I instead bet to try and end up with more than $120.

    Whatever your account balance is, pretend that it was your deposit amount.

    If you find yourself consistently losing, take a break to reassess your strategy. Suppose you deposited $100, have bet through that amount and are down to $65. If you don't feel that you have an edge on the bookmaker, simply withdraw the $65. Don't treat it as lost money and bet wildly until your account balance is zero.
