This is nice idea gambling with raffle ticket site looking simple and clean so you have any plan for giveaway promo to test this service.

It is good that you thought about limiting ability to purchase tickets. But I am afraid that current system can be exploited. After all you can have 2 and more accounts.
And is keeping you from buying with your multi account as many tickets as you virtually want?

That is true someone could have a bunch of accounts buy 10 tickets on each account and have a high chance to win. But thats a huge risk. In testing i have seen a 4% win. So even know other people purchases a ton of tickets the person who purchase 1 ticket won.

Btw your idea is good enough but still I agree with maku. If you can keep on making a new account and that people will have a better chance to win. Let say he make 10 accounts and together in one game the chance for their winning is higher than others than only make 1 account to participate. Btw I havent saw any pot there in your site. May be you need to make some promotions or giveaways to let them tried it anyway because this is 30 sec games and it will be sure fast enough to end

What is the problem of that? I mean, that user with 10 different accounts could have 10x more chance to win, but at the same time he has to risk 10x more in the round for the same potential profit.

This is very true i have seen many times where a member buys 1 ticket and wins against other player who have 10 tickets.

Aight so, here's the thing.
When there's 3 tickets bought (and 3 people) the third ticket's range is 6667-9999. Which means, if the game draw a 'lucky number' of 10k, there will be no winner and this makes the whole thing wrong isn't it? (since 3* 33.33¯ % can not do 100%)

Also, about the provably fair. There is no client-seed. Meaning, the whole 'random' number is generated server side. So the users can not prove that this number is actually really random and not set to be a low one to make the first ticket to always win... If you see what I mean.

So even if the number is encrypted then sent to the players before the game starts, OP could snipe this ticket by buying in the right amount to get in the "winning range" because he could manually set the 'lucky number' to a low one to be sure to win.

In conclusion, winning tickets bug that can make no winner and game not provably fair.

Still a funny game. Looking forward to these fix.

What is the problem of that? I mean, that user with 10 different accounts could have 10x more chance to win, but at the same time he has to risk 10x more in the round for the same potential profit.

This will not fair. He is going to have 10 times more chances than usual people. Sure he risk the 10 account of that but that is almost guarantee win for him. Let say there is 20 people out there playing with his 10 accounts that means he have 50% chance of winning out there

Why would it be not fair? Having a lot of raffle tickets on many different accounts does give him a very high chance to win the raffle, but it is never a guaranteed win. It is just like playing some 98% bets on dice sites, and one day the player will lose an "almost guaranteed win" and lose a huge amount. Would you consider playing 98% bets on dice sites unfair?

Exactly even if someone was to make 10 accounts its not like he is going to have a 100% chance to win. Each account can only buy 10 tickets just like every other player can.

Yeah let say that it is almost the same at dice and it is 98% chances and then Im sure he will win a lot of money first before he collapse and he will get his profit after his loss. This will make this game one sided match, it is almost the same as usual lottery that let people buy so many tickets. You let 10 accounts playing in the same game? So what are you called this if this will not boost his chance to win?

For 98% bets on dice, the chance to lose in the each game is the same at 2%. The player could lose the first bet if he is very unlucky, or he could win 200 bets in a row if he is very lucky. The same applies to this raffle. It is possible for the player to "win a lot of money first before he collapse", and it is possible for him to "win a little bit and then lose a lot of money". Anyway, I guess I have said enough on this matter. If you (or anybody reading the posts) like this way of playing, you can do so yourself on this raffle site or on dice games as you prefer.

i have done a lot of testing and people who buy 10 tickets over the players who only buy 1 ticket do have a better chance to win but i have seen 100s of times where they did not win.

Please read our FAQ page as to how we are provably fair. We show a before and after hash you can verify the hash. Also you and ryan the owners of bustabit need to stop trying to bash us. i know we are competitors but your acting like little kids.

Dexon's not an owner of bustabit, but a moderator. And both he and I have asked you to stop spamming there, which I don't think is either unreasonable or childish.

BTW it's got absolutely nothing to do with you being a competitor, it's got to do with you being disruptive and annoying. I've never had a problem with people talking about competitors (including direct clones!), but creating multiple shill accounts and spamming ads is something that I don't think any site allows or will put up with.

First off you both are running bustabit you both are attacking me i have not once went and spammed your site chat. I have a bunch of people generating traffic for me it could be one of them ill message everyone.

But the fact is you both are trying to bash my site because you also own pevpot a competitor site.

First of all, I really don't have a problem with competitors at all. Hell, you can download a copy of bustabit and run it yourself if you want *and* even talk about it on my chat. I don't mind. I'm pretty much the least competitive person you'll find. Pevpot doesn't even come close to paying the bills, it's just a bit of fun for me. Hell, if you want, I'll give you a coule bitmillicents to buy a sponsorship on the page :P

Or maybe I'm wrong, and one of the "bunch of people" you've hired is an overzealous marketers who impersonates you and then won't stop spamming?



Anyway, I'll stop posting here if you can refrain from advertising on my site (unless its actual conversation, not just "got some big pots going at btc-raffle.com"). Good luck with everything.

You say you don't care but the 2 people who run bustabit/pevpot both are bashing me. I asked you to stop flaming on my thread.

I have said it is not me who is saying anything on your site. There are 5 owners to this site i messaged everyone saying do not use your chat box. What else do you want me to do?

Also i am building a referral system where people will get 1% of their referrals spending. So are you going to blame me when people just trying to make money with referrals and post a link in your chat too?

This game is not provably fair and you are misleading your players by claiming it is.

Granted, by displaying the salted and hashed result before the game ends, you prove that the winning ticket (the "lucky number") was not changed based on subsequent wagers by players. However, there is no way for players to verify that the house isn't posing as other players. These fake players would have an obvious advantage since they know which games to enter and when to do so in order to win the pot with a high likelihood, thereby cheating the real players.

Consider this example:

  • Player A purchases a ticket and the hash 5041f376ddcb15642ffecea159db207945c0dc0f8375fb9c4657b1b27b6b0e1eb4cd9a138939664 acd254839f15e70fd18e670ac814202aea4b860bd2aa56adb is shown.
  • Players B, C, D and E also purchase a ticket.
  • The game ends and the lucky number 9337 is revealed. Also, the salt 774eb411-8f95-4e65-b0cd-89c19d05f03b is now displayed.

Player D is having a bad run and he's getting suspicious, so he decides to verify the last game. He uses the formula in your FAQ (http://btc-raffle.com/faq) and enters the lucky number and the salt. To his surprise, everything checks out. The hash is correct!

So, nothing to see here? Not quite. The house purposefully generated a lucky number near the end of the spectrum (from 1 to 10.000). After players B, C and D purchased their tickets the house decided that more players were unlikely to join, so it purchased the winning ticket itself, posing as player E, and thereby cheating player D of his winnings.

This is just one attack vector and I imagine a clever (malicious) site operator would be able to come up with more. In any case you cannot reasonably claim that the game is provably fair.

Incase you need help finding which one of your 5 owners is spamming:

I contacted support yesterday and confirmed they were (one of) the owners, after which I sent them a link a made-up URL on bustabit.com (/misc/btc-raffle-spam.png), and immediately in bustabit access logs were a request from the exact browser/ip/session that has been used to spam my site.

If you check your support logs, who ever handled my ticket is without a doubt the spammer ;D

@jlfvr your only other post is you talking about bustabit so clearly your just here to bash us.. Reading over your post all your saying we are untrustworthy. The same thing can be said for guys site. This site is all about player vs player when your site is players vs the house. Clearly we are a threat or you guys would not be putting so much effort into trying to make us look bad.

The game is fun the people are loving it. Stop trying to bash us.

@ryan i will have to look into a lot of chats.

I don't go on your thread and bash it but i could easily. Especially with your lotto where you show 0 proof its not rigged seems like a ploy to get people to bet at X3.

@jlfvr your only other post is you talking about bustabit so clearly your just here to bash us.. Reading over your post all your saying we are untrustworthy. The same thing can be said for guys site. This site is all about player vs player when your site is players vs the house. Clearly we are a threat or you guys would not be putting so much effort into trying to make us look bad.

Yeah, that's definitely it, nothing to do with the spam from the last couple hours:

and I've already confirmed that it's not any of your players, but someone from your site who handles your support claiming to be an owner (based on ip/session match).

I do not want to see anymore post from the bustabit admins on my thread.

Dexon's not an admin of bustabit, just a user with a mute stick. I'll ask him to leave this alone, and I'd appreciate if you (or one of your fellow co-owners) cut the spam bullshit out.

I'm really not sure what your problem is. I don't expect you to care if my site is spammed, I just expect your site to not participate or encourage it.

And as I've said, I am the sole owner and admin of bustabit. Dexon is just a user who has the ability to mute people (a mod).

I removed it earlier, as a show of good faith as I didn't want to harm them, just get them to stop spamming. However they kept going at Dexon/bustabit didn't stop (even after I linked their owner on support with the spamming), so I ended up just re-adding it.

The game is fun the people are loving it. Stop trying to bash us.

I am not here to "bash you", I'm here because someone—who turned out to be an owner of your site—kept and keeps spamming links to btc-raffle in bustabit's chat, so I decided to take a closer look. Was that not the intention? There's no such thing as bad publicity, right? ;)

I did not say anything regarding your trustworthiness—although your behaviour does raise some red flags—, I said that your site is not provably fair despite claiming to be. The concerns I brought up are of technical nature and as such are not affected by whether you question my motives or trust me. In fact, anyone can easily verify my claims.

The correct response on your side would be to refute those claims with a technical argument (not attacks on my character) or make improvements to your game if necessary. Speaking of which, you should stop sending your users' login credentials in the clear and start using SSL, especially since you are handling customer funds. Transport encryption is a low-effort, high-value necessity that you owe your players.

Clearly your a bustabit admin. The fact you are saying the site is not provably fair is 100% false. We show a before and after hash. There is no way for us to rig any raffle.

I am familiar with your "provably fair" system and I have considered it in the example given in my previous post (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1288600.msg13276838#msg13276838). Hashing a few values doesn't magically make your game provably fair—there is a lot more to it. As I have demonstrated, players can still be cheated by the operator fairly easily.

Although I am not the owner or administrator of bustabit, I do not see how that would invalidate the evidence I have presented even if it were the case.

Please take the time to read and understand the example in my previous post. There is also the issue of not using transport layer encryption (SSL), which you have yet to respond to as well. Your refusal to address these problems is quite telling.

I do not think you are clear on how our "provably fair" works, or how our site works. So i will try again to explain it to you bustabit bashers.

The "lucky" number is picked before the game starts.
There is no way to change the lucky number.
It is impossible for someone to get the lucky number even if they know what it is.

Proof your a bustabit admin look at your other posts.

You guys need to just stop. I'm a competitor i get that but no need to be this ruthless.

The lucky number is not picked (or at least the hash isn't displayed) until the first player purchases a ticket, but generally we are in agreement until here.


It is impossible for someone to get the lucky number even if they know what it is.

This is false. If the house knows the number is 10.000, for example, what stops it from waiting until new players are unlikely to join and then purchasing the winning ticket itself? The players would never know they've been cheated. This is the weakness I'm addressing in my previous post.


Proof your a bustabit admin look at your other posts.

You guys need to just stop. I'm a competitor i get that but no need to be this ruthless.  

Again: I do not own bustabit, nor am I an administrator or a moderator for bustabit. My one post in bustabit's thread doesn't make me a bustabit admin any more than my four posts in this thread make me an administrator of your game.

I also don't believe that pointing out technical issues qualifies as "ruthless" in any way.

Ok try this pretend you know the winning number. Say its 6000 can you show me how to get that number please?
Because its random when you buy a ticket.

Again: Your only other post is you talking about bustabit, does that make you a admin no, but it sure does make a red flag stand up saying you are. 

This is getting pretty said you guys are still trying to bash us.

Ok try this pretend you know the winning number. Say its 6000 can you show me how to get that number please?
Because its random when you buy a ticket.

If the ticket numbers were assigned to players randomly it would be easier—even trivial—for the house to cheat, not harder, because the house could simply "randomly" assign the winning ticket to a player it controls. There would be no way for players to verify that the tickets were indeed randomly allocated in your current system.

Instead, however, tickets appear to be split among players sequentially in the order in which they entered the game, as can be seen here (http://i.imgur.com/nKvvtWg.gif).

This means it is not trivial for the house to cheat, but not terribly difficult either. Depending on the approximate number of players the house expects to join the round it will add its "puppets" at different points.

Let's assume that by counting how many players are currently online, how many participated in the last round and how many are able to participate in the next round, the house predicts that between three and seven players will join the round. Making accurate predictions within these bounds is fairly easy with the information the house has at its disposal.

Now the house waits for three legitimate players to join. If there are unexpectedly less players, the house simply passes and allows the round to end. If, on the other hand, three players A, B and C enter the round, the house will immediately also "purchase" tickets with three players D, E and F; which it controls, giving player D the winning ticket. Up to four additional legitimate players E, F, G and H can now join without the house losing the winning tickets.

Based on the houses earlier prediction, more players joining is unlikely. But even if an eighth legitimate player defies all odds and joins the round, causing the legitimate player E to now own the winning ticket, the house can simply add another eight puppets, giving the winning ticket back to the house and allowing more legitimate players to join without endangering the house's winning ticket. For all practical purposes this can be repeated as often as necessary. Alternatively, the house can simply prevent new players from joining the round past a certain point, for example by simply ignoring entries and blaming it on latency or bugs.

Such a winning strategy exists for every possible winning ticket.

TL;DR: The house can take advantage of information asymmetry by adding one or more fake players and thereby cheating the legitimate players of their winnings.

I'm not sure who jlfvr is, but he doesn't represent bustabit (only I do). However, he does seem to make valid and well articulated points (which if it was me, would have no problem writing under my own name).


Anyway, I have approximately zero interest in your site, if I'm being honest I haven't even bothered to try understand your provably fair. If you stop bringing up bustabit, I'll have no reason to come here and defend its name.

Oh yeah, and as of at least ~10 minutes ago, either you or one of your "5" co-owners is spamming your link. I can promise you, you're doing far more harm to your brand than good. And seriously, for the next time you want to spam a competitor you should just use tor or something for plausible deniability. It's pretty embarrassing when it can be definitively linked to you..

Next line.

"being honest I haven't even bothered to try understand your provably fair."

Is it just me or does that make 0 sense...

You also are claiming the other accounts who are being used to bash us have nothing to do with bustabit now with one look at the other accounts its clear as day they are other admins of bustabit.

ffs. I don't know how to make this any clearer. There is no secret bustabit admin cabal. It's just me. I am the only bustabit admin.

(And as far as I can tell, jlfvr has done nothing to bash you. He's just discussed provably fair on a technical level, something which you seem unable to do)

I've already explained the relationship between Dexon and I. He's an unpaid chat moderator, who also plays on the site and wrote a bot. He created a lotto that tries to reward active chatters on the site. You used to enter by chatting, but that got abused to much -- so it was changed to betting (which you can use the faucet to achieve) and then you need to type "!claim" in time. The prize is a grand total of 100 bits (4 cents). It's not provably fair, it has never been and  I don't think anyone really cares. It's just a bit of fun

Any visitor to your site can clearly see that tickets are not randomly assigned, as I've already shown in this screencapture (http://i.imgur.com/nKvvtWg.gif). The ranges in blue beside the players' names represent the tickets that a player holds. The n-th player to join will always hold tickets (n-1) * 10000/m +1 through n * 10000/m, where m is the total number of players. There is nothing random about it.

In addition, as I have also already explained, random ticket assignment would make it even easier and not harder to cheat with your current "provably fair" system:

If the ticket numbers were assigned to players randomly it would be easier—even trivial—for the house to cheat, not harder, because the house could simply "randomly" assign the winning ticket to a player it controls. There would be no way for players to verify that the tickets were indeed randomly allocated in your current system.

Just to humour you I'll revise my explanation for that scenario:

The house generates the lucky number 6000 and an arbitrary number of legitimate players join the round. The house joins the round itself with a player they control and "randomly" assigns the winning ticket to that player, ensuring the win for the house.

We are a legit business, have never scammed anyone. We have only been online for a few days, and already doing over 0.5 BTC a day. Trust me if we were scammers no one would be playing on our site.

Please reframe from posting false rumors about us created by competitors.

What if no one knows you're actually scamming them?
I don't want to be rude... But the majority of the people playing on casinos thinks that since there's something encrypted, then it's provably fair and won't try to look at if it's true or not by the simple fact that they don't understand a single thing about this.

Since your site is not provably fair and has been proven by many people already, I'm surprised that you didn't yet fixed it.
...
Probably because you don't know how. (That would be legit, no one can know everything... learning isn't a sin and no one would blame you, in fact I could help you fixing your game)
or
Probably you don't want to. (That would just mean you like to be able to rig the game times by times and get money from those players who don't understand what's really going on)

I'm getting so sick of the bustabit staff posting here.

The site is provably fair you can see the before and after hash proving it. We can not change the hash nor can we pick the winning ticket our self. When buying tickets it is 100% random.

If this is not good enough for you i will happily hear your ideas.  


Title: Re: BTC-Raffle.com Raffle's every 30 seconds Provably Fair Player VS Player Game
Post by: Dexon on December 20, 2015, 05:30:29 AM
I'll show you what you're doing.

Code:
var randomNumber = 4; // <-- fairly picked up from a dice i rolled in my hands. You don't believe me? Well, i don't care, that's exactly what you do.
console.log( randomNumber ); // <-- I'm showing in the console what is the winning ticket so I can know it before every other users!
var salt = "-Hey-Im-A-Salt";

var encrypted = encrypt(randomNumber + salt); // This is the before hash that you send to the users.

So now, let's take a look at the variable 'randomNumber'. It is currently 4, and I rolled a dice in my hand in real life so it's 100% random and fair right?

...

Right ?


If you truly think the '4' is a random number and that it's fair, then I have nothing else to say, you are dump.
If you say that the '4' is not random then, review your code...

Of course, you don't roll a dice... this is just an image to show that, on your lucky number generation, you have nothing fair happening there.
You are not running a dice game. For your game to be fair, you must have no control or know that random number because you could easily make as many fake accounts as you want to try to "snipe" the lucky ticket and win all the player's money.
Also, this game should have been built based on trust. Yet, all you did was spamming and annoying the players on other casino sites about it. That's not the way you get players.

We have only been online for a few days, and already doing over 0.5 BTC a day.

Also, you're saying that you win 0.5 btc per day of profit. Let me doubt that.
You're only earning 1% of every game and your 'Total Today: 0.27650000 btc'... 1% of 0.27 gives 0.0027... Maths... wtf are you doing with it... And don't try to convince me that you had 50 btc played on your site one day. That's just not true.

Or are you finally admitting you were scamming the players?


Edit: Dice games have what we call a 'client-seed' to allow the player to have an impact on the random number which partially block the casino from rigging it. (some thing that you do not have)

You guys need to just stop. I'm a competitor i get that but no need to be this ruthless.  
They aren't being ruthless, but I understand why it seems like that to you - you are trying to defend yourself and failing miserably.

RHarver has to be one of the most qualified people in the world of Bitcoin when it comes to commenting on the provably fair element of online gambling.  He's also a lot more intelligent than you.





These posts lead me to believe you don't even understand the difference between "proof" and "evidence".

I do not think you are clear on how our "provably fair" works, or how our site works. So i will try again to explain it to you bustabit bashers.

The "lucky" number is picked before the game starts.
There is no way to change the lucky number.
It is impossible for someone to get the lucky number even if they know what it is.

Proof your a bustabit admin look at your other posts.

You can say Dexon is unpaid but no one believes you when all he does every day all day is promote your site.

Just the fact he gives your members money proves it.





This post makes me think you might not even understand how your own site works.  

You are incorrect the tickets are not "sequentially in the order' You could be the first player or the last player and get ticket number 1-1000 there is 100% no way for someone to pick there numbers its all 100% random.

I've tested your site, the first player to enter will always receive ticket #1.

After reading this whole thread i wanted to see for my self if the site can be rigged and after testing the site with about 0.01 BTC, I can say there is no way the admin could rig it. Even if the admin could see the lucky numbers there is no way he could get that number buying tickets. i have tried over 30 times to get the number 6000, the game changes everyone's numbers each time a new ticket is purchased. Even if you are the first person to buy a ticket, and it looks like your going to get number 1-1000 by the end of the game so many people purchased tickets you will end up with something else.

I don't have proof, just substantial evidence.


How about you show some evidence that proves the following, since youre the one claiming to have a provably fair site and all.

Here's what I see:

First player registers receives 1-10000 like this:

https://i.gyazo.com/12a62ea486b1370b468b9eb094b2ac2d.png

As more register, the 10000 is divided evenly with the first players range beginning with 1 and the last player receiving 10000, like this:

https://i.gyazo.com/9ff41bbdc608390fecc6921a0e3382bb.png

(Notice how T-Rex maintains the lowest range, beginning with "1"

https://i.gyazo.com/8d7e2bd66382832847a05b496b712da8.png

When the lucky number is called, TRex still has "1"

https://i.gyazo.com/6bbb24850e40faf1a5a13eab77a38b52.png




If the lucky number is "1", whoever registered first will always win.

If the lucky number is "10000" the final player to register will always win.

This statement is false:

You are incorrect the tickets are not "sequentially in the order' You could be the first player or the last player and get ticket number 1-1000 there is 100% no way for someone to pick there numbers its all 100% random.

So is this one:

If you have tested the site you would know the first person does not always get the first ticket.
Looking forward to another excellent response from OP/OWNER like THIS ONE (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1288600.msg13296359#msg13296359)

So no explanation then... :(

The site has switched to a new "provably fair" system, which the operator announced in a new thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1312679.0). Of course they never acknowledged that their old system was not provably fair.

Unfortunately the new system is also flawed, perhaps even more so than the previous one, as dooglus explains in another thread:

I checked your so-called provably fair system and it's kind of laughable. You use the txid of the "last bitcoin transaction".

Quote
As you can see, the hash of bitcoin transaction is totally unpredictable

The problem is that the hash of a bitcoin transaction is entirely predictable. I can pre-generate thousands of them and have them ready for broadcasting. Then I pick a bunch that make my ticket win and broadcast them at just the right time. If I was you, I could then pick one of them and claim that it was "the last bitcoin transaction". In other words your system isn't provably fair at all. It's exploitable by players, and cheatable by yourself.

I think you should rethink the system you use before making such a half-assed complaint against a better thought out game.
