    Student Finance. You only have to start paying it back when you're earning £21,000 per year

    Are there ANY testimonials of this actually working?
    the flaw is what happens when you get extremely unlucky as most roulette tables have a maximum bet so you couldn't double it.

    Eg table limit is £50, you bet on red and black comes up 6 times. Since the limit is £50 you can't bet £64 and the system goes to hell.

    It seems like safer than usual gambling but gambling all the same with the potential for huge losses and it's not something you want to do if you can't afford to lose money.

    Edit: also bank balance is an issue, if you bet red and it comes up black 9 times you would need to have £256 to continue playing, 10 times £512 ect and if you don't have enough to continue you lose your money.

    'dunno if it works'

    I've tried it on free versions, and it multiplied the starting amount quickly.

    I saw this ages ago, this thread just reminded me of it... use it as you will

    Student finance covers my tuition fees but it only covers half of my accommodation fees so my parents have to pay the rest of it. They also give me a weekly allowance for food etc but definitely in my second year and over the summer I will try and save up to pay for all (/most) of it myself because it does take the piss a bit really, especially as my brother will be starting uni next year too!

    student finance, basic loan
    some savings from my Grandad
    some money from my parents at the start of each academic year
    this year i've worked 6 hours a week and made about a grand so i could save the money my parents gave me
    i wont be working next year as i want to get involved in some volunteering projects and work experience that's more relevant to the masters i want to do so i'll have less money next year but it'll be fine as my accommodation is costing less.

    What this guy said.

    If you play a few times you are quite likely to make a little money (but there is also a non zero chance of losing everything you own). The three main catches are:

    -Limits on how much you can put on the table (as mentioned above)

    -The amount of money you have is much less than the casino => you are going to hit an unlucky streak before the casino

    -the 0 actually gives the casino an edge even if you have loads of money (unless it's actually infinte but that doesn't happen in real life)

    Imagine you have 7 the casino has 1 you bet 1 then 2 then 4 (this is for a 50% win)

    => there is a 7/8 chance that the casino goes bust you win 1

    => there is a 1/8 chance you go bust you lose 7

    => on average you win 0

    If the game is biased (which it is) you lose on average, but it isn't obvious in the short run.

    hey guys
    im going to start uni soon and i just wanted to know how people are paying for their fees,acomadation and all the rest of it
    are your parents paying for it?
    do you have a part time job?
    and if you get a loan then will you have to pay it back or do you only pay it back once you start earning?
    maintenance grant and bursary...which is about £4k
    Luckily, my parents help pay for lunch money and travel....but thats it.
    They've been trying to get me to work part-time, but I struggle with the workload personally.
