    Ok two days ago, I deposited £100 (I actually won that money via Betting) and started betting. Unbelievably, it went up to £850 in two days. Later on, I placed two £400 bets and lost them.


    What shall I do ? I'm devastated and f**** as I wanted to use the money to buy clothes etc! I'm 15 btw

    Where the hell does a 15 year old get that kind of cash? :eek:

    And lesson learned. Quit while you're ahead or if you can't handle it don't bet at all. Best to learn the lesson while young anyhow.

    100 quid? Most 15 year olds could easily get that from birthday money

    Well, to be honest, the key in the act of gambling is the word gamble - you may win, you may lose. If you had won those bets you wouldn't be on here saying you're devastated you won, so you should accept that you made a mistake and hopefully learn from it and quit gambling and not try chase the loss.

    Equally, though, 15 is legally too young to gamble, so you could probably hassle them for that..but then if you made the 800 through gambling that probably wouldn't help either.

    Cut your losses, don't gamble money you want to spend on other things.

    Personally I gamble like once every 3/4 months and only every £10 or £20 which I can afford to lose. Yesterday I lost £20 and, even though it's a tiny sum of money, I was still really annoyed at myself - enough so that I definitely won't try again for another 3/4 months.

      95%+ of gamblers will ultimately lose. It's largely not worth it.
