    I know exactly what I do when the losing is relentless as I experienced it Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday last week. I keep playing. After the first two days, I swore I would just play on half my daily roll and put away the rest so I didn't feel like such a loser. Then I took back my swears and shoved those Benjis straight into the closest machine.

    It does help that the gods like me.

    My experience on this topic is as follows. I find that my wins vs losses fluctuates over a series of several months. What I mean is I'll have have 3-4 months straight of wins only to be met with 3-4 months of losses. This roller coaster effect helps me some what where if I'm on a tear with winning, I'll play often and even book a trip to Vegas during this time to keep the good times rolling. But when I'm in that period of losing, I'll limit my visits to my local casino and will never book a Vegas trip during that time. This has helped me a lot in the past 3 years.

    On the topic of losing, I find that when that dark cloud is over your head, it does not matter where to go. It will follow you around with a vengeance. If this happens in Vegas, you need to take a break, at least for the rest of the day. Try 24 hours of no gambling to lick your wounds (it's hard to do). Then go in with a fresh mental state and pocket small wins at a time to recover. Hit and run! Lots of them. Hopefully, the small wins will add up to being even for the trip by the time you leave. This is just my experience and what I do. Not a prescription for success, lol.
