The 5 Stages of Losing Streak Grief

Posted by & filed under casino.


1. Denial

Sure, I’ve lost some chips, but it wasn’t that bad. Look, I still have money in my account. I just

need one solid win and everything will turn around. I had another night just like this last week,

and I came out with more money than I started with. It’s not like things can get any worse. I just

have to stay positive and keep going. What’s the worst thing that could happen?

2. Anger

What the Hell? That can’t be right. How can I be so stupid? How did I not see that coming? I

can’t believe what I just did. I just doubled up my bet and suddenly the rug got pulled out from

under me. That’s totally uncalled for. The game is rigged. The dealer has something against me.

What a total rip-off. What a joke. This game is the worst. I am never coming here again!

3. Bargaining

I’ll just give it one more try. I just need to change up my game. I need to play it safe like my

friend told me. I need to really put myself out there and embrace the challenge. I just need to

really believe that I can win and then I can finally pull through. I’ll do it right this time, and earn

back everything I’ve lost. You’ll see. I just need one more chance, and then I can turn this game


4. Depression

Well, that’s that. There goes the last of my chips. A whole night at the slots and I have nothing to

show for it. Well, what was I expecting to happen? I can’t believe I ever thought I could have a

decent gambling night. Why did I even bother to deposit the money? Why did I even come here?

Now all the chips have gone down the drain and there’s nothing I can do. I should have listened

to my friend and played solitaire instead.

5. Acceptance

You know what? I may not have gotten rich, but I had fun. I went through the good and the bad,

and I came out intact. I may not have had any luck tonight, but does that mean I cash in my chips

and never come back again? No way. It’s high time I leave all these bad vibes behind and try

again. Who’s up for round two?
