Going to a casino when you’re in bad mood is not a good idea. I don’t know if your mood has a direct effect on the luck you may have, but it will certainly shorten your fuse when you experience the usual amount of bad luck. Once you start to think negatively it almost always seems that you get negative results.

The short fuse is what leads to a bad night at the casino. If your mood is sour you’re more likely to make a rash decision and throw caution to the wind. People in this state of mind usually spend way too much money.

Save your visits to the casino for good times. Don’t go to blow off steam when something in your life has you in a bad mood. If you’re angry try to shake it. Go for a walk or hit a punching bag; meditation works too.
