The Amazing Anonymous Bitcoin Lottery returns! www.TAABL.net

Well, sort of. It's a close clone of the original TAABL that was born circa August 2010 to be the original bitcoin lottery.One of the games provided, BitPick, is reproduced here with a twist; no accounts are needed, we'll be using the bitcoin transactions as medium to place bets and extract addresses to pay prizes, just like DICE on CRACK and Satoshi Dice (added anonymity)

Please read http://taabl.net/howtoplay for instructions and explanations.

3 games are provided: The very fast paced Pick 2, the slightly more sedate Pick 3 and the "once a year or so" Pick 4.

In a nutshell, you pick the last digits of the hash of each completed block. If your picks match exactly, you win the entire pot! The house fee of only 1.0% means your expectation is 99% no matter how many entries there are.

Don't want to read, and just play? Jump in anytime into a pick 2, just send 0.1 or multiple thereof to: 12TaAbLWBNKB1NLYH92CPnC1DizQoNK6FN, you can even place a bet larger than the available slots in a Pick, the remaining credit will be used against future picks. You will receive 2 satoshis when a round is complete, and the whole pot when you win.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the wagers! Lotteries are slowly finishing, and here are some raw stats to help with your wagering.

The pick 2 (0.10 BTC) has been getting hit every few hours with 25 wagers.
The pick 3 (0.05 BTC) was just hit for the first time. With ~50 entries, it should hit about 6 times a week.
The pick 4 (0.01 BTC) should be hit about 3 times a week with 250 entries

Any interest in a pick 5, or a larger lottery?

TAABL limits are going up! The Amazing Anonymous Bitcoin Lottery is 100% anonymous, 100% transparent and 100% verifiable. With an expected return of 99.0%, it is also one of the highest payout games on the internet. A lottery is over when a block hash matches one of the picks (example, you have 'eab' and block hash ends in 'eab', you win the pot).

New Levels:

Pick 2 1.00 BTC Each (256 tickets total)
Pick 3 0.10 BTC Each (4,096 tickets total)
Pick 4 0.10 BTC Each (65,536 tickets total)


Why the change? Ticket sales have been sporadic at best, due to the speed at which the lotteries have been going off. We are hopeful the new structure will allow for more even, spaced out lotteries. As always, you can jump in ANYTIME and have a 99% expected return. There is NO signup, username, or password required. A bitcoin transaction is all that is needed to connect you to your picks. Your funds will be returned from where they came, so send from a wallet that you control the private keys. Input your tx on TAABL.net to get your lottery numbers.

TAABL will be seeding all lotteries with at least 1.00 btc per day for the time being, so keep checking the current pot size.

Join the Pick 2 ANYTIME (1.0 btc): 12TaAbLWBNKB1NLYH92CPnC1DizQoNK6FN
Join the Pick 3 ANYTIME (0.1 btc): 13TAabLHjNzwg8Mj7XYn76FuVAqj32s8EM
Join the Pick 4 ANYTIME (0.1 btc): 14TAAbLiw2QLuRJCGQ3iETYg3vcpweZkTE

(* Deposit in multiples of the entry fee for multiple picks)

Good luck!

A 3.96 btc pot was collected on the Pick 2, and a rather humble 1.386 btc pot on the Pick 3.

http://taabl.net/pick?_=509920ed8127a850f4b1cb5b

The FPGA Miner raffle is having a bit less interest than we anticipated, but it is still up for grabs folks!

Roughly 2 weeks have passed since the service was launched. Comments? Complaints? Any feedback?

Some action last week on TAABL, with 8x Pick 2, 2x Pick 3 and 2x Pick 4, for a combined Pot of 36.135 BTC. I'll refrain from posting all the Pick links here, people know where to find it now, right?

The FPGA Raffle is still running, so don't lose the chance of taking home the miner yourself.

We're moving the Pick 2 bet value from 1.0 BTC to 0.5 BTC, as requested by BitCoiner2012 in https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=122329.msg1331755#msg1331755. To make the change seamless a new address will be used for the new BitPick, so send 0.5 or multiples thereof to 12tAabLFLxvUzC5KuX7VKMM8bYRncbQ84E to play.

Once the current BTC 1.0  Pick 2 ends it will not spawn a new one. Let us know what you think about this, and good luck!

It looks like we're picking up speed; the last Pick 3s were record breakers at BTC 8.613 and BTC 8.217 pots and the running Pick 4 has a whooping BTC 28.809 pot at this moment.

Good luck!

It had to match immediately after I mentioned it hadn't yet...

Congrats to the big winner! Pick 4 matched a little under an hour now:

And we are adding a Pick 5 to the games available!

This means there's 1 in a million chances of hitting for each new block, more precisely one in 1.048.575.

Each bet costs 0.1 BTC and you can send your wager to 15TaABLmhxiRQ9DTX6ZcZ9S9RknVZmP5jX.

Good luck!
