I just took a look at the site to check out the updates.

I'm not seeing a deposit address:



and at the bottom of the screen:



I also don't see anything about how much of each bet goes into the progressive pot, or how to set up the auto play / auto hold.

Edit: I see that clicking the 'auto' button lets me chose what kind of auto play I want, but that's not clear until I've clicked it.

When I tried to withdraw, it complained that my deposit wasn't confirmed yet:



It would be better if you accepted my request but waited for the deposit to confirm before paying out.  I don't mind waiting for the confirmation, but I don't want to have to remember to ask for it again in 10 minutes or however long it's going to take to confirm.  You could say something like "your withdrawal request will be processed as soon as your deposit has confirmed" so I know to expect a short delay.

When I tried to withdraw, it complained that my deposit wasn't confirmed yet:

It still tells me "Deposited Bitcoins have still not been confirmed. Please try again later." but now my deposit does have a confirmation.  If you're waiting for more than one confirmation, it would be good to say exactly how many I need to wait for.

Edit: I was able to cash out once my deposit had 2 confirmations.

Hey!  Interesting.  Good find, I'll look into it.  I think I know what is causing this so it should be fixed shortly:)

When I tried to withdraw, it complained that my deposit wasn't confirmed yet:

There are a few minor issues with queuing up your withdrawal: can you continue playing while waiting on a withdrawal?  do we need a system where you can cancel pending withdrawals?

Either way -- I'll discuss the idea with the other programmer on the project.

Yup, sorry. It's 2 confirmations required to withdraw.  I'll update the text to say 2 confirmations:)

I think you should treat it just like a regular withdrawal, but delay the payout until you feel it's safe to do so.  You instantly take the credits out of my account, so I can't play with them any more, and don't let me cancel the withdrawal.  Since you only seem to wait for 2 confirmations, it shouldn't take very long - 2 hours would be pretty unusual.

Here's an idea that should get you some extra traffic; I notice the site is pretty quiet at the moment...

Backdate the jackpot.

i.e. work out what the jackpot would be if you had been running a progressive pot since the site started.

When I looked in yesterday I think you had around 26000 games played and a jackpot of 4004 or so.
Now you have 37000 games played and a jackpot of 4134.
So each 11000 games adds about 130 to the pot.  (How does that work exactly?)
So 37000 games should have added around 440 to the pot.
So the pot should be 4440.  Hmm.  Not as big as I thought it would be.

That's very rough and ready, but having a larger jackpot as a one-off promotion should encourage more people to play, and not cost you very much.

Just a thought...

What's going on here?  I was using the auto play feature, got dealt Ah 3d Tc 4h 2d and it auto-held and played the off-suit A234.

That's never right is it?  Not even using a very basic strategy.

Here's a screenshot, along with the expectation of holding various cards, according to http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/hand-analyzer/



This was GameID: e293696f9774d0f61b477111b2f13f8d.

Here's a simple strategy: http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/strategy/jacks-or-better/9-6/simple/

It suggests holding 4 to an outside straight in preference to just holding a high card, but A234 isn't an outside straight draw.  I don't know if this is a bug, or if you're deliberately holding the wrong cards sometimes, but either way I think it should be fixed.

OK, I think the strategy will work.  I'll add it to our task list and discuss it out and if it's good to go, it'll be in the next update.

Just a thought...

I actually had this same thought about this back when we were implementing it.  I'll bring the topic up again with the other programmer -- do you think that adding the 440 credits is important?

You're right! This looks like a bug, but it's my fault.  I was already following that simple strategy you recommended and I considered A-2-3-4 to be an outside straight draw (because of the 5).  Obviously, that's silly now that I think about it, since odds of drawing that 5 is equal to drawing a 3 in a A-2-4-5 inside draw.  I'll fix this and put up a patch ASAP.

To be honest when I first did the math it ended up in a jackpot of 8000 credits, not 440.  Then spotted my mistake and fixed the maths.  I'm thinking the 440 credits isn't enough to make a difference, no.

J-Q-K-A is similarly not an outside straight draw (just in case...)

Good call!  FWIW, the A-2-3-4 straight is fixed and live.

I'm not seeing a deposit address:

Reloading the page didn't fix it.  Deleting the account_key from the URL did, since I guess that makes me a new account.

The broken account is:

  https://bitcoinvideopoker.com/?account_key=00c40a212ff24f1a36c29512906824b1

You can reproduce the error by visiting that URL.

I had the same problem and fixed it in the same way. The broken link is: https://bitcoinvideopoker.com/?account_key=38fccc279860a756404ed7f18f913992

Edit: I did get a QR code to pop up there, but no deposit address in text format, and the QR code crashed my blockchain.info android app twice in a row when I scanned it.

Overall, VERY NICE interface. The best part about it are the sounds, which is something I really miss out on when playing at Bitzino. Along those lines, you should make the "you win" sound last longer for bigger wins, like it's taking longer for the game to count up all your credits or something. This will increase the excitement the player feels after they hit a big hand like a full house and then double it up. IF you go to a casino and play a "real" Jacks or Better game, you'll see what I mean right away.

I agree it's annoying to keep checking back to see if my deposit has 2 confirmations yet. I hope you get that fixed soon.

What is the maximum bet that you anticipate that you'll allow after some more testing?

You should be careful not to show the URL at the top of the page in any videos or screenshots.

Anyone can type in the address and withdraw the balance of your account.

I hope you withdrew the balance before posting the video.  Your account was empty when I looked.

We just had someone win our first progressive jackpot.  The website has now had three royal flushes!

little vid of me firing on bitcoin video poker with a blockchain wallet on multiple devices to demonstrate how awesome this experience is with this site and the blockchain.info mobile wallet

Oh this is awesome!  Good job on the video.  You've inspired me to check out sealswithclubs:)

I'm not seeing a deposit address:

Reloading the page didn't fix it.  Deleting the account_key from the URL did, since I guess that makes me a new account.

The broken account is:

  https://bitcoinvideopoker.com/?account_key=00c40a212ff24f1a36c29512906824b1

You can reproduce the error by visiting that URL.

I had the same problem and fixed it in the same way. The broken link is: https://bitcoinvideopoker.com/?account_key=38fccc279860a756404ed7f18f913992

This bug should be fixed now Smiley

Quote from: IveBeenBit
Overall, VERY NICE interface. The best part about it are the sounds, which is something I really miss out on when playing at Bitzino. Along those lines, you should make the "you win" sound last longer for bigger wins, like it's taking longer for the game to count up all your credits or something. This will increase the excitement the player feels after they hit a big hand like a full house and then double it up. IF you go to a casino and play a "real" Jacks or Better game, you'll see what I mean right away.

I've passed on that suggestion to the other programmer.  I think we both have already decided to improve the winning sound, too.

I agree it's annoying to keep checking back to see if my deposit has 2 confirmations yet. I hope you get that fixed soon.

Looks like this is really something you guys want, so we'll start looking at an implementation for it.

What is the maximum bet that you anticipate that you'll allow after some more testing?

Well, we've been talking about unlocking 0.005 in a week or so.  After that, 0.01 a few more weeks later.  I can conceivably see us unlocking 1BTC games, but that is much further down the road:)

Note that the competition is already offering 2 BTC games...  No progressive pot there though.
