Without knowing the exact facts, it’s easy to categorize gamblers into 3 categories:

  • Big Winner
  • Small Loser/Winner
  • Big Loser

The large mass of the gamblers is, of course, in the last category, "Big Loser". I would say that about 90-95 % of the gamblers fits into this category. When reading "Big" you need to read it as percent of the money won or lost. Even if someone just plays for 10 dollars for his or hers entire life, wins and doubles it, is a "Big Winner". You see, the individual wagers ten dollars and comes out with twenty dollars, so his or hers web profit is 100 per cent. That being said, the distinction among a "Big Winner" plus a "Big Loser" might be quite small.

Let’s say you might be a small stake Texas holdem player, your internet profit each month is about five % of the bank roll. So in the event you started with a deposit of one hundred dollars, first 30 days you would go five dollars which would rise your bankroll to one hundred and five dollars, next calendar month $110.five and so on. To go from $100 to 200 dollars takes amongst 13 – 14 months if your net profit is 5 % every month. What about if you started out with $200? In 13 – 14 months, beginning with 200 dollars as well as a net profit of five % per 30 days, you’d have in between 380 dollars – $400 in bank roll.

This is another example, but here your web revenue is -5 percent per thirty days and your deposit was 100 dollars. Soon after a yr, your bank roll would have gone down to $50-$55, which is nearly 50 percent of your starting bankroll. Lets now say that you got a bonus of $100, so your beginning bankroll would be two hundred dollars with the exact same net revenue per month. Following a yr now, you’d probably still have one hundred and eight.

This is why bonuses are so vital when you start building your bankroll. Bonuses can turn a "Big Loser" into a "Small Winner", or a "Small Loser" into a "Big Winner".
