Whether you’re playing poker in a casino with your chips right in front of
you or playing an online poker game in an internet casino, it’s easy to get
carried away when you’re betting. If you’ve had to hitchhike home from Las Vegas
because you broke the bank or if you are on the verge of getting a divorce due
to the fact that you can’t afford to pay the internet bill because of your
internet casino habit, take the problem seriously. There are meetings and
support groups available for you. Ask your doctor for help.
However, if your problem is a little less serious than that: you tend to get
a little overzealous with your betting when stakes are high and the heat of the
online poker game is at a boiling point, then here are a few things for you to
try. You can have fun playing online poker without losing your shirt – or having
to worry about money at all. All you need to do is set a few guidelines for
-Set a limit. Just like you might hand your credit cards and ATM card over to
your best friend and go to a brick and mortar casino with a specific amount of
cash in your pocket, so too should you go to an online casino, use your credit
card for one specific amount and then put it away.
-Enjoy a free amateur game. If you’ve bet your limit but still feel like
playing online poker, play a few free amateur games. Most internet casinos have
plenty to offer. If you enjoy yourself, maybe the next time around, you’ll throw
your money onto their online poker table.
-Keep track. By all means, don’t lose track of how many deposits you’ve made
into your internet casino account. Just because you might forget doesn’t mean it
