     A gambling principle well worth memorizing is this- the first loss is the cheapest.

    If you lose your initial bankroll, don’t start looking for an ATM machine. Stop playing. The machine has been cruel to you, and enough is enough. There are other machines that will be kind; that will give you constant payouts and some big ones at that. There’s nothing sweeter, other than hitting the Royal
Flush, to keep getting Full Houses and Four of a Kind hands, with the credits mounting up into the high 100s.

     What you don’t want to do is have a big win, a ton of credits, and then watch the machine turn sour and those credits evaporate. Make a mind decision to get away as a winner. Suppose you’re ahead 380 credits on a quarter
machine. 300 credits add up to $75. If you go  down that far, cash out. I’ve seen players lose their 380 credits, take more money from their wallets and end up with a frightening loss. Leave a winner, if possible.
