"Misfortunes never come singly"
Right after I check my eligibility on the $ZK token airdrop (all wallets are NOT eligible), I feel sad.
This is also exactly where the second misfortune kicks in, being my absolutely terrible luck on slots. Well, maybe just coincidence.

Usually when I'm feeling bad I play Tombstone RIP. After ~100 hours of playtime I'm sure I have an idea about the game's volatility, and I can accept the worse case scenario so that I'm unlikely to tilt further more.
Although the streak was horrible, I didn't tilt, I just keep depositing one after another. No happy, no sad, no angry, almost no feeling at all. 
Maybe somewhere deep down my heart there's still some pain but I can't feel it much, as my financial situation is still OK after two big hits on Deadwood RIP (Total win $1100) a few days ago, which is enough to cover my losses during this bad streak. At least for now.

Here's my recorded data:

BadStreak

All those 12 deposits are done within <48 hours: From Jun 11th 5PM to Jun 13th 1AM.
2 $15 Bonus buys which caused a total loss of $10, others are mostly spins at minimum bet: base bet is always <$0.3 and total cost is always <$0.4, and most of those Tombstone Rip xBet spins are $0.1 spins with xBet.
Total result? -$900. The biggest win is only a $60 (~$0.14 base bet x 440). Never been so shocked during my slots career. Those numbers "Biggest Win / Deposit" and "Peak / Deposit" looks terrible.

"Why so shitty?"

First of all i really suprised, i didnt think anyone will make excels for their gamble deposit/withdraw/profit/peak and etc. I thought can be just some small notes but its really detailed. I think i will make same thing when i make deposit to but just need to take some tips from you how i can make a table for that.

Second, its my opinion i am not judging you. I always thought nolimit is a very very big gamble provider because the feedback from the spins and bonuses really really really less ( thats my experience) Also its really hard to hit something good on nolimit. When possessed and kenneth released i made 1k or 1.5k deposit for both game but i didnt hit anything. So if you see that money which you deposit as already gone before, nolimit is good because you can hit huge or max to.

Third of all, i really just suggest hacksaw for bonus buys. At least i got best results on hacksaw gaming. Didnt get max win or 1000,2000x but it didnt rip me to. I wagered for a while and after that i was in same balance and said okey maybe not today and withdrawed

I wish you best on your journey, also would like to remember that ( you already know better than me probably but xD) -> ''Case Always Win''

@wuuzy

I've been recording my session stats for almost an year, as well as some other spreadsheets.

Spreadsheet isn't that complicated: you just open Google Docs or Excel and write down your session info. Nolimit City's play history function is particularly useful when it comes to recording my peak balance and biggest win during the session. For other providers you might need to keep an eye on it, record and update it manually.

My loss limit is usually: 70-80/session deposit, 200/day, sometimes up to 300/day when there's a nice new release. But can be more than that if I'm in Degen mode (such as this time I discovered I'm not eligible for the $ZK airdrop)

"Third of all, i really just suggest hacksaw for bonus buys. At least i got best results on hacksaw gaming. "

Most of the time I'm not a bonus buy player.
Some hacksaw games might be good, but there are 3 option I'd avoid as it can cause a 1Kx-2Kx loss which destroy your balance in ~15 minutes. Those bonus buys already destroyed me once or twice and I'm unlikely to come back.
Wanted, Duel bonus 200x
Hand of Anubis, Underworld 129x
Fists of Destruction, 4S 250x

Lost another $120 on other NLC games. So the total loss of this streak is over $1K now ($1023.58 to be exact, according to my record). 

Oh also a $46 from Stake Monthly which I don't count as a loss because it's free money.

Still minimum bet. Still not even a 300x from games other than Tombstone RIP. I still wonder why I don't have any negative emotions, is it because I'm in a vegetative state, or I'm not real (I'm a fake person or entity? Perhaps). Anyway, don't expect me to go to a psychiatrist, I don't believe in it.

Will post an update including the stat for this entire period of time, once I got what I'm well deserved.

At this moment I deserve at least 3 500x, including one 750x or higher. But if this bad trend keeps going on, this number will go up as well.

@hxlohar I think you shouldnt count stake montly as a free money because you already wasted that money. When i gamble i am collecting the bonuses and withdrawing at least not losing all of them 😀

@hxlohar If you don't really like buy spins, have you ever tried live casino games, something like Crazy Time, BJ, Baccarat, or Roulette?

@wuuzy I count everything that are not from deposits a sorts of "bonus funds" aka free money But I do record those on a seperate spreadsheet as well, so that I can compare bonus funds I got between casinos and which one is better.

@uudinjalal01 Yes I tried it before. Not very lucky on them. Slots are 1K round per hour but crazy time or other things are like only ~100 rounds/hr and my luck on those aren't good. so I choose to stick to slots.

This all started Jun 11th, and now it's been a week.
The streak now have a length of 27 sessions, with a total loss of $1897.26, still no 500x, not to mention not even a single 300x during the last 11 sessions.
I'm pretty sure my avg bet size is <$0.19.
Most of the time, my base bet is one of the following. Tombstone Rip is a special case which I usually lower my base bet by half: CNY/¥ 1.40 ($0.19), or IDR/Rp 2760 ($0.17), or TRY/TL 4.00 ($0.12). or EUR/€ 0.20 ($0.21, rarely used)
That's a 10Kx loss (Less than 1Kx is lost via Bonus Buy). A substantial amount of money for every gambler including bonus buy players, well, maybe not god mode players.
"At this moment I deserve at least 3 500x, including one 750x or higher. But if this bad trend keeps going on, this number will go up as well."
This number is now four (4) 500x, including one (1) 1000x or higher.

The best thing to do in a losing streak is doing a brake. Never chase your losses.

@derhungernde I didn't take a break because at this moment I just can't feel the pain anymore as I'm "getting used to it". Normally I would stop depositing if the potential pain from losing outweighs potential happiness from winning.

If the bet size remains at a similar level, and I still spin it normally without buying bonus, I don't consider that "chasing my losses" because there's almost no way for a base game player to chase a 10Kx loss.
Asking for 4 500x including at least one 1000x, after a 10Kx loss, which should be reasonable enough.
Currently I got a single 500x. Still 3 more to go. Along with a 1.7Kx from 355x bonus buy. I deposited like 150x at around midnight and it lasted 2 hours with no bonus buy, the peak moment (820x) was just slightly below my withdrawal goal (860x). At 2:30 AM I still got 370x left and I really need to sleep soon. I usually refuse to have an unsettled session before going to sleep, so bought a 355x 80/20 lucky draw on Folsom and it paid.

"Everything good must come to an end"
I think it should also be true for bad things. At least my bad streak finally ended.
Main part is 50 deposits across 14 days, 6 different casinos. This caused a total loss of $2781.25. Definitely sounds too bad to be real, but it is real.
My commonly played currency and base bet are:
CNY/¥ 1.40 ($0.19), or IDR/Rp 2760 ($0.17), or TRY/TL 4.00 ($0.12), or EUR/€ 0.20 ($0.21, rarely used).
On Tombstone Rip, those numbers are usually halved.
So that number is approx 17,000x loss. Yeah I played a decent amount of Tombstone Rip during that period of time, and it feels much harder to win anything 300x+ or 500x+, comparing to last year.
All sessions are recorded, and during those 50 sessions there's only one (1) withdrawal, also only one (1) non bonus buy 500x. While 500x ($100) is still a good thing, a single of those can't help much in front of a $2700 loss.
I'm demanding 7 500x including two 1000x, but only got a single 500x among those 50 deposits.

Starting from the 51st session, my luck has recovered, starting with a 2200x on Deadwood Rip w/o xBet, followed by a 4700x on Kenneth Must Die from 185x lucky draw.
The it's all about fulfilling my demand, which took another 13 deposits across 6 days. And I did get there, with a total profit of $520.22 from those sessions. The other 1000x+ I got being 3300x on Pearl Harbor, much higher than the 1000x I asked for.

So yeah you can think this post as a warning sign of how unlucky one can get.
At my volume it's not that rare to lose 1000x in a day w/o bonus buy. For regular bonus buy players I can imagine this number being 2x-5x higher.
While it is almost impossible to have such luck for an entire year or month, it can easily happen a few days to a week in a row, or in my case, two weeks, and once you add up those total losses you get a scary number.
Of course we all know chasing one's losses is very dangerous, chasing specific goals can also be dangerous, depending on the goal. Hunting for a 1000x on ELK games is definitely way more dangerous than hunting for a 1000x on NLC games.
