2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Zcash Video Casino is here! on: April 27, 2017, 09:23:35 AM
Zcash Video Casino has arrived!


We still likely have a few bugs to work out,  but it is ready for you to play today.
We have implemented the Zcash shielded addresses too.
All deposits are moved to a shielded address,  and all withdrawals are then processed from that address.  
In practice this should mean that all deposits and withdrawals are completely anonymous.
The only down side is that it takes about a minute for the CPU to compute the shielded address withdrawals,  so rather than the 2 to 10 seconds for a conventional Bitcoin withdrawal, the anonymous Zcash withdrawals will take 30 to 90 seconds.
As always, our games are provably fair, with some of the very best odds of any casino in the world.

The current house edge for all games is:

The affiliate program is up and ready.
The Android app will be coming soon.

Please give it a try and provide feedback on what else you would like to see.

Due to popular demand from the community due to network congestion with Bitcoin, we have now launched
DashVideoCasino.com
It works exactly like the Bitcoin site you all know and love,  but everything is denominated in Dash.
We even have the same great affiliate program where you can earn up to 25% of the house edge on every player you refer.
4  Economy / Services / ★★★ Bitcoin Video Casino ★★★ - Design us an HTML banner, get paid $75 in BTC! on: July 07, 2016, 01:24:36 AM
★★★ Bitcoin Video Casino ★★★

Hi folks!

You may have noticed our HTML ad banners on display:





We want to get more HTML ad banners designed, and we'd like the community's help in doing so! Running a thread for this seems like a great way to get some excellent, varied submissions!

We don't just want one banner; we expect we'll use between 1 - 9 banners every week or two (though we won't always choose new banners), so the more submissions you make the higher chance you have of having one of your submissions picked!

Payment

$75 in Bitcoin if we use your banner ad on any forum. This applies to each banner ad, so if you make 5 submissions and we choose 3 of them we'll pay you $225 in Bitcoin!

We'll contact you via PM requesting a Bitcoin address for payment if we do decide to use any of your submissions.

Please read all the rules and ad design specifications, and provide us with your HTML banner in action at Codepen.io.

Rules

  • Only submissions made on-thread will qualify.
  • All submissions must exactly meet the ad design specifications at the bottom of this post.
  • You must provide the Codepen.io link to your code, and a screenshot of the ad in action at the ad_test page (further details below).
  • If your submission is chosen, your $75 will be converted from USD to BTC immediately prior to sending payment, not at the time we choose the banner or request your Bitcoin address.
  • The purpose of the banner ad is, of course, to advertise BitcoinVideoCasino.com, so do keep that in mind when creating content. Smiley
  • Some of our current banner ads have a 'rollover' style, so when you hover your cursor over it the ad switches from the first image above to the second. We'll certainly accept static submissions but we really like the 'rollover' kind of banner so submissions in that style are more likely to be chosen.


Examples of text you could use for the rollover:

"Over 99.5% return"
"Best odds in the industry”
“No Registration required”
"Mobile Android App”
"Provably fair”
“300+BTC Progressive Jackpot! Win it now!"
If you have any other cool suggestions we'd be happy to hear them!

Ad Design Specifications

Quote
Ads are allowed to contain any non-annoying HTML/CSS style. No images, JavaScript, or animation. Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser (Firefox, 900px wide). Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language.

You can use HTML/CSS styling with some freedom. However:
- I will copy/paste your ad into the ad area of the page's HTML. It then must actually fit in that location of the page and not overflow into other things. Usually you don't have to go to any extra trouble to make this happen if you avoid manual positioning (including negative margins, etc.) and other weird tricks.
- Ads must not contain images (not even images made via data URIs, CSS, or SVG) or JavaScript.
- The maximum size of everything related to each of your ads is 51200 bytes.
- Ads must not contain forms.
- Ads must not animate except for subtle hover effects.
- Ads must not load things from external sites, including custom fonts, even if they're downloaded from a common trusted location like Google.
- Ads must not be taller than about 42px as I see them on my browser, which is around 900px wide. Keep in mind that people often view the forum on smartphones and other devices with small screens: to ensure that everyone can read your ad, it's a good idea to make it work even at very low screen sizes. This isn't required, though.


Common mistakes when creating ads:
- It is invalid XHTML to put a <div> inside of an <a>.
- Ads will be affected by the forum's CSS. Ads will by default have text-align:center and font-size:90%; links will have :hover{text-decoration:underline}; etc.
- If your top-level element is a block element (<div>, <span style="display:block">, etc.), it is sometimes surrounded by extra whitespace. It's usually best for your top-level element to be inline or inline-block.
- Special symbols, especially including & symbols in URLs, need to be converted into entities like &amp;.
- Using tables often causes various problems.

★★Make sure you insert your ad into a downloaded version of https://bitcointalk.org/ad_test.html to see whether it looks OK with the inherited styles. (Read the HTML comments in that page.) If everything works, input your HTML code at Codepen and paste the link here, along with a screenshot of how the ad looks on the ad_test page. This makes it possible for other community members with no HTML experience to check out the cool designs! Smiley


You can send valid BBcode (the markup used when making forum posts), or you can send HTML with inline CSS (style="..."). Do not minify anything you send -- I may need to modify it slightly. Note that your ad's style may be affected by the board's default CSS, especially if you use inline CSS.

Bypassing AdBlock Plus:
It is difficult or impossible for ABP filters to block the ad space itself without blocking posts. However, filters can match against the URLs in your links, your CSS classes and style attributes, and the HTML structure of your ads.

To bypass Adblock Plus, you should:
- Use header CSS, not inline.
- Use no more than 4 CSS classes per banner as.
- Use only one <a> and no other tags if possible. If your ads get blocked because of matching done on something inside of your ad, you are responsible for noticing this and giving me new ad HTML.

We plan to keep this an ongoing thread, so we're happy to take submissions at any point until further notice.

If you have any questions at all please let me know! If not, I look forward to seeing your submissions! Smiley

Cheers!
5  Economy / Gambling / Bitcoin Video Casino is for sale on: January 20, 2014, 02:16:28 PM
The developers of Bitcoin Video Casino are looking for a buyer to take over all site operations.

Since we started Bitcoin Video Casino a year ago, there has been enormous growth in both the casino and Bitcoin as a currency. This past month has been our busiest to date, and we expect this growth to continue. The increased demands of a rapidly growing website have everyone on the team working more than full time.  Under a new team, Bitcoin Video Casino can realize its full potential while we devote more time to new projects benefiting the Bitcoin community and economy.

We love Bitcoin Video Casino and its users, and will only sell to someone that we believe will ultimately improve the quality of the site for its users. It must be somebody that we know will continue to operate a 100% legitimate online gaming site. This means that the owner values user privacy and provably fair gaming. If we cannot find a buyer that we can trust, we will continue to operate the site by ourselves until we find such a person.

Your purchase will get you the complete ownership of everything related to Bitcoin Video Casino. This includes source code, server access, branding, images, and all social media profiles. If the new owner requires our assistance and expertise for a transition period after the sale, this can be arranged.

Please send your serious offer, along with a summary of your experience and qualifications for operating an online site, to admin@bitcoinvideocasino.com. We will provide financial reports and other investment information to serious buyers before the sale.

9  Economy / Gambling / We thwarted a hacking attempt on Bitcoin Video Casino and learned a lot. on: October 01, 2013, 02:04:01 PM
We thwarted a hacking attempt on Bitcoin Video Casino and learned a lot. We wanted to share our experience so that other site operators can be prepared.

On Monday Sep 9th, an attempt to hack into Bitcoin Video Casino was made. We initially noticed something was amiss because our server had become unreachable for several hours. When our server eventually came back online again, we noticed that the machine had been restarted. Our server has had a 100% uptime since we launched (~185 days ago) and this is the first time it was restarted.

We snooped around a bit and found an open login by a user on /dev/tty1, a local controlling terminal. That's very bad. All logins should only be from psuedo-terminals (ptyX). More looking around found a script hiding in /etc called "bitcoin.sh" and a crontab entry meant to constantly restart the script. The script was nothing but a phone home to this intruder's Amazon EC2 instance and wasn't very clever, but it did the job it was intended to. Unfortunately for the hacker, he left his private key on our servers.

We took all of the standard precautions when building our website: offline cold storage of most Bitcoins, closing down open ports, disabling password logins (ssh keys only!), but most importantly we decided to use full disk encryption, with the disk decryption key encrypted with GPG.

The downside to full disk encryption is that our site cannot come up automatically after a reboot. That's fine, really, we never reboot the machine anyway. So once the would-be hacker restarted the machine, he had no way to access our database, our hot wallet, or our game source code as they reside on the encrypted disk. The hacker couldn't even mount the encrypted disks, as the decryption key isn't stored on the server.

We had a long talk with our hosting provider on how this happened. Nobody should be able to log into our machine locally (the /dev/tty1 part). We thought that someone local to our hosting provider's data center was trying to break in, but as we pressed for answers, we learned that a KVM device was installed that allowed remote access into our machine one day prior to the hack. The evidence that the device was plugged in was present in the kernel log ('dmesg'). While the machine was rebooted, the hacker modified /etc/sudoers and changed an account password so that he could have access after the reboot. Later, auth.log would verify his activity.

So why did someone working at the datacenter install a KVM on our machine when we didn't request it? It turns out that our hosting provider's billing software was actually where the hack began. An order was fraudulently placed on our account to install the KVM through his hacking of HostBill, the software our hosting provider uses. It's a particularly popular piece of software, so it's likely other hosting providers could be vulnerable.

Anyway, the long story short is that we didn't lose any of our Bitcoins or our game software because of one smart move: full disk encryption. We highly recommend to all you developers out there to use full disk encryption if you have sensitive data to protect on remote servers. Full disk encryption doesn't help thwart hot attacks while the site is live, but it does help tremendously when hackers could possibly get physical control of your remote-hosted machine.

Note: We also posted this to Reddit, so all of the redditors on here can see the post at http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1nicl9/we_thwarted_a_hacking_attempt_on_bitcoin_video/

13  Other / Beginners & Help / Introducing myself and announcing publicly my new Bitcoin Video Poker website! on: December 09, 2012, 07:11:19 AM


Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce myself.  I'm a longtime lurker of these forums and a longtime lover of Bitcoin.  I'm a developer (15+ years experience) in gaming, websites, and more.  My friend and I were inspired by SatoshiDice to get involved in the gambling aspect of Bitcoin so we developed BitcoinVideoPoker.com.

At first I just wanted to pass my website information along to mem (for his gambling website list) and be on my merry way, but I'm thinking now that is probably not the right way to go about business.  Instead, I'll announce and hang around here and be of assistance to anyone who needs it.

So that's that.  Check out our website if you're bored or interested in video poker.  We went for a retro Vegas look and feel.  The game is Jacks or Better and the top payout is 4000 to 1 on a Royal Flush.  We require 0 confirmations to play, but 2 confirmations on your deposit before you can cashout and the minimum cashout is 0.02. 

http://BitcoinVideoPoker.com/

I'll be hanging around to answer any questions to take feedback.  Thanks:)
