How is the pandemic affecting your play?

Recommended Posts

I am interested in knowing how much people are playing due to this global outbreak of sickness. I would expect that the amount of play would be down, but then on the other hand, with as many people that are stuck in their homes, I wouldn’t be surprised if this may be a thing to do to pass the time. Of course with the negatives of Bitcoin dropping a lot within the past two weeks, I don’t know if that is decreasing deposits or if because the value is down, some of you are buying it and playing with it on here and on Stake. Personally, I am losing my mind with having to stay home from work, coupled with the fact that I also am bored out of my mind. I’ve been way more active on the forum but I have also deposited quite a bit into Stake and am transferring funds back and forth just to keep myself busy.  I think at this point, I am up about $40 but have increased my VIP % a little bit.

So how about you guys?

I've been forced to be taken out of work completely, in other words - unpaid leave. My partner has had her hours cut in half. Suspecting it to be the same as me soon. The bad part is that I have no benefits that will help out those that are out of work. It means that rent can't be paid. How the hell are my partner and I supposed to cope if they are expecting us to stay inside. It's alright for those with an income that can work at home but for those who work in Hospitality, how do we make a living?

This virus pandemic has caused nothing but unhappiness for me and my partner. She lives with me too. I can't even deposit because I simply don't have any money whatsoever.

I think, except the guys who withdraw all their stacks and make the prices go low, the game is the same, more gambling! Stay home, but dont spend too much on gambling. Low the bet and play more!!Take care of your people, and other people. It is not funny.. virus is not a game!

Yeah I’m finding a lot of mixed answers about this from the people I’ve asked around to. They seem to be gambling more if they were an early adopter of crypto and have an extra bit lying around but I am not hearing the same from the rest of us who have to use fiat to get it, then deposit. A lot of people in this same situation and it is rather crippling beyond what I ever could imagine. Getting laid off is one thing but being forced to basically quit all forms of work altogether is a totally different animal. Where I’m from I think the government is trying to stimulate the economy but we’ll see how much it actually helps anybody but the top of the wealth pyramid. My guess is it won’t

The pandemic situation has affected my activity as everybody i guess, many things in my life, especially for buying essential goods is complicated when you are under curfew, my gambling as well is affected because of btc drop now you need to win more to get a decent profit,  Well with patience and calm we will go through this global crisis, we can adapt ourselves to any situation even the most complicated ones , humans adapt themselves, we are evolutive.

Gambling just like normal I guess, because we doing it online not much effecting us. Hopefully we all can win something and we can restock our food shelf. I hope all of us stay safe and healthy, please watch your hand with 20 seconds rules. Don't go out if it not necessarily urgent.

The pandemic greatly affected the life that I lived, so where I live, the economy that originated from the sea was all closed and caused many people to not be able to get income, including me, so I myself have been active for several days here to make money because this is one way I can do to make money. I also hope that the price of bitcoin can continue to rise so that the income from gambling can match what I generate every day. Next, I hope this virus will disappear soon and everyone can live their lives as before.

But my life wasn’t particularly affected by the virus. The only thing that the sport was canceled is nothing to bet. )))))))

The most direct impact that corona could have for most persons in the gambling habits is because of money. Being unable to work/having other things with a higher rate of need means is harder for you to take these bucks you have left to gambler. But lets be real, with the amount of persons who are affected because of being unable to play on land casinos safely the virtual casinos are their heaven. So it doesnt matter much.

 

In my case, theres no diff.  Of course the fact that theres a global crisis and a economy crash means all profit, all things around money and my needs are changed. But in general isnt a drastic change. I can see a lot of people suffering to incredible levels because of this, or having to take decisions ''do i buy x or i gamble'', i also can see a lot of people making incorrect decisions more than never because this corona thing is DESTRYOYING LIVES. Not because of being sick itself (which is already crayz bad) but the economy impact that is having on a lot of jobs and related things. 

 

Everyone should have their priorities clear in time of crisis, this is one of these times, gambling can be a nice hobbie for some, an addiction for most but the key here is ''safety first''.

gambling for money, I agree that in this quarantine period nothing can be done to make a lot of money except gambling, I hope by gambling can meet the needs that I need for the next few days and I try to play with good enough techniques to minimize defeat.
I hope everyone can get a profit

Everyone has their way of life before the Pandemic. Now there is a total lock down in almost all countries and economy is dwindling. It is almost 3 weeks now since the tag of coronavirus as a pandemic and things are not getting better. The numbers of people getting infected per day is on the rise and returning to our day to day life seems impossible, and its far from now.

The Pandemic has made the way I wager normally decrease. We are not been paid again because there is no work to do (Everyone is indoors), Everyone is just clamoring about  groceries and food items and its kind of frustrating. 

What we just need is a vaccine or a treatment that can make this chinese virus go. I am already getting tired of everything

This pandemic have made buying crypto very hard for me,

Usually I just go to the nearest 7eleven store and I can add funds to my coins.ph account. During the lockdown, this add-funds has been suspended and there is no exact day of it being available again.

I also experienced like most people, even though I was still working but this increased my free time so I spent a lot of time playing here and stake.  even so I do not expect this to increase the deposit that I make regardless of the price of bitcoin.

What a useless topic? How should a virus affect our game? 😆

The virus makes many people unable to work so most people spend their time going to online gambling sites to still be able to make money because this is one of the easiest ways to still be able to earn money.

I think that the volume of gambling games is many because of the quality of many people inside the houses, but playing by sports betting has decreased significantly and significantly due to the suspension of all sports activities

In a way, it's actually helped me save a little bit of money since I recently found out that my work place is paying 80% of my paychecks. Which is pretty good. Going out once a week also means savings too. I'm using an online vault as well in Coinbase to store my savings as well. All in all, during this time, it's save, save & more saving to ensure that when the pandemic is over, I'm okay on funds.

gambling is indeed not so affected, because this is a place where everyone who doesn't have a job and money will come. I read the news, many companies have fired employees because of the influence of the virus that did not end soon. chances are they will gamble in hopes of increasing the amount of money left.
