Title: 0.05
Post by: leigl on May 30, 2013, 10:32:03 AM
Hello, I would like a BTC0.05 loan please.

I would like to get into Satoshi Dice but I can't get ahold of any BTC above 0.001 and I would like 0.05 incase I fail on one bet...

I will (hopefully) be able to return 0.1 by 7th/June...

1KHo5E8zXPLZNWmLYrm6Ees3deNnkKh2Ns is my BTC address, please PM me with proof that it's your account if you loan to me...

Why not Knecke? I play it safe with the 91% betting...

What's funny @TradeFortress?

But then if you want to double it, you'd need to bet 0.05 five hundred times, and the chances of not losing it once (which would empty your wallet) is around 0.0041%. This is assuming zero transaction fees too.

Betting 0.05 at 1.004x repeatably trying to double it has a 99.9959% chance of failure (of you losing your coins). With transaction fees, it's 100%.

Tell me you're not serious.

Everytime you play you will lose an average of 1,9 % thatīs for sure.

Ok ask yourself why satoshi dice is offering their gambling site, they definitly not gamble they want to earn BTC some people lose BTC and some people win but at the end the users will lose and satoshi dice wins.

We seriously need a Donations section, separate from Lending, for BTC requests that will obviously not be paid back.

Gambling hundreds of times with 90+% winrate is just stupid
You are paying the fees and house edge over and over again.

If you want to try your luck put all in one
...or just don't gamble at all.

Ever hear the one about the guy who went from 140 btc to 1?  Because it's about 100x more common than your story...

Hopefully trolling.

If not trolling, really needs to seek some help - this is genuinely quite saddening to read :(

Some math teaching would be good.

More like 140 btc to 0, problem gamblers will not stop until they have nothing left.

On April Fools, or Christmas, open it to the public for 24h.  It would be awesome to see all the scams n' stuff in there  :).
