Know Your Loss Rate

Know When To Quit

There's nothing wrong with continuing to play long enough to give the odds a chance to even out a little bit, but once you've gone through the amount you've allotted for yourself to play, chalk it up to a losing session and move on. Sure, things may turn around, but they might get worse, and there's always a chance that more luck will be with you on a different day.

Don't Raise Your Bets When You Lose

The fact is that employing such a strategy leaves you open to having your bankroll completely wiped out by an untimely losing streak. When you are losing, continue to play your best game or quit if you don't think you can.
