    94,000 credits

    So as I'm crawling out of the hole on my credits I decide to see how far back I am in the members list sort... it turns out I'm way behind.

    It looks like if I'd never posted or bet on anything I'd have 94,000 credits!

    Maybe this gambling thing isn't the best way to grow credits ... OR MAYBE I could need just need to bet bigger and more often

    That is obviously the correct solution. Just like if you are down big at the casino you just need to start betting more to get it back.

    Re: 94,000 credits

    Of course I had to look up myself sorted by credits. Thanks a lot for the idea. I'm on page 209 out of 213. The only reason there is a page 213 is because a dude just signed up. How depressing.

    I see the credit moster has gotten you again. Down to 50,000 in one day.

    I did just place three bets, so we'll see. If I win all of my bets tonight, maybe I'm just that dang good. ;)

    I'm still fighting back from the Indiana vs. Iowa game, the attendance more than the actual game... Seriously, how can you not get 10k to watch Eric Gordon and DJ White?

    Re: 94,000 credits

    We all have that issue, if I had never placed a single bet I would be on page 1 of the top bettors list, but honestly, where is the fun in that? I have learned a few things:

    Never watch the NBA, even if you have credits on it.
    Iowa will never cover the over.
    And I hate the packers!

    See that knowledge is priceless.

    Re: 94,000 credits

    It's more fun to spread it around to me, that way you keep the credits and can keep betting as long as you win at least half. Maybe someday I'll throw all my credits down on one hand....
