I think it was the first game which was made provably fair and because of that it made it famous amongst BTC gamblers. When people lose on a game which is not provably fair they think they were cheated but when they can verify the results, it gives them sense of fairness.

I agree that dice was the first gambling game for bitcoins to be made popular, but I don't think that being provably fair is the main reason, as now if you want to run a successful casino, your games must be provably fair. Blackjack is provably fair, and so are many other games.

I personally prefer other games than dice, but I can see why a lot of people like it; it's easy to play, and it's suspenseful.

Dice is popular because it is easy to play and don't need much knowledge. You just roll a dice, pick over or under a value and then hope for your prediction to be true. It is unlike blackjack or poker where you need some knowledge of the game to reduce the house edge.

Hey people!

I've got a question for you all:
Why is dice so popular in btc world?

I mean, gambling is not specific to btc, lots of people gamble in fiat no problem with that. But (at least in Europe) dice gamble is something that barely exists! Roulette yes, poker yes, blackjack yes! But dice? Never saw any xD

It's a bit special, maybe dice is a lot more common in the USA or in Russia/China but I find it really specific to bitcoin! And I wonder why dice sites are such a huge trend in the btc gambling world!

Any idea?

for me, part of it is because it is the first gambling game that i found online in witch i could use bitcoin. also it is nice that i can use even a very tiny amount as small as 1 satoshi for my bets because it can make my bankroll that much bigger.

additionally one of the major reasons for me liking dice games is the fact that it is easy to play it. dice does not need any experience, thinking, planning, skill,... it is just dumb luck for rolling a dice and see what the result is.

I guess because the game was very compatible with bitcoin, as we know the game of dice has some kind of chip for at stake, it has similarities with bitcoin that looks very similar to the chip, so that's why many dice games that lead and use bitcoin, and bitcoin was also created to gambling games

It is very easy.
You can play mostly every second again.
You can double your price if you have luch in 1 second.
I often play dice and mostly i win more than i loose.

but people do not think about losing in a single click. they just think the dice is very easy to double the money. therefore the dice have tremendous hype.

Dice is simple game and fast, therefore people like it. Plus in some sites you can chat with other players, getting new gambling ideas etc.

Because many people find that a lot. They can also win a lot of money.
I find poker more fun honestly but that's my opinion.

I think that dice is so popular because of its simplicity. It's pure luck nothing else: If you win it means you are lucky today, if you lose means you've got bad luck, that's all. No one to blame for your losses. I personally like dice btw much more than any other game.

Maybe because you can earn and lost easily on dice, and you no need wait. Like sportsbook, all sports match need to wait the match finish to grade their bet. and dice no need to wait.

Dice easiest form of betting and no experience or skill required to get started there so easy to roll a dice, low house is also make it more attractive for high rollers and high payout like 9900x which is really interesting.

I think that it come from the probably fair thing. Also, this one of the easiest script to write compared to something as complex as roulette or blackjack.

Couple of reasons I can see that Dice is so popular:
1. Simplicity of the game, easy to play, fast paced game with immediate results.
2. Easy to establish provably fair system.
3. PrimeDice was one of the first good, well established, reputable and trustworthy gambling platform for BTC.
