Can you tell me what time that you sent payouts today? You've been great as far as paying out winners but for some reason it looks like they are still being delayed on my end again. Nothing has come in yet. Thanks

The last payouts for yesterdays bets were made at about 11am UTC/6am ET. They all have 50-60 confirmations at the time of writing this. I don't want to post blockchain.info transaction URLs here since I don't know which one is you, but you should be able to see them there if you know the addresses that you typically use.
Just got it. That's strange. The confirmations are exactly what you stated so it is something here on my end. Thanks

Just want to mention that I did receive the payments fast yesterday. It was shortly after the games ended.

I've been a bit inconsistent with the payouts recently, sometimes they're right after the game, sometimes hours later. I'll try to improve in the consistency from now on since I know it's important for the players.

Other than that, it's business as usual for us, I'm not too worried about the exchange rate or other bitcoin issues at the moment, still have a lot of faith in the currency. Really excited for the NBA and NHL playoffs to start soon, a lot of good matchups in the horizon. The Heat have been giving me some trouble when they keep resting their players and they still win with 6 guys out of the lineup, but once it's playoff time we can be sure that if the guys can stand on their feet, they'll play Smiley

I suppose you're talking about this one, for the Lakers game:

Send from: *Gnh1

Included In Blocks:    232019 (2013-04-18 19:14:12 +1,003 minutes)


That's very unusual indeed, I use the same fee and I've never seen delays longer than an hour or so. But the thing is, we can see that the bet was placed before tipoff, and there is a fee, so there's no reason not to accept it. That's just tough luck with the game total going "under" despite the overtime.

There was a mistake in today's La Liga goal totals, it's now been fixed, but all bets prior to that will be refunded. Match won't start until an hour from now so we don't know the score yet, and you're welcome to make another bet with the updated lines.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

[edit] And just to clarify that match winner bets are unaffected.

Site is having some issues again, it's very frustrating but nothing I can do but wait to the host to get it fixed. It's been on and off for a while now. Hope they won't take too long.

I'm not gonna post all the games here, but here are the lines for the NBA playoffs which will start tonight:

Team to advance:

New York Knicks      1.26  / -381        1MNT3225mfHpsuNd2TumrvAhohQNJpXs8Y
Boston Celtics      3.84  / +284        16bgtwJ8G3xwUvZV3ukR5BFsgRVZxQQ9Gh
Denver Nuggets      1.18  / -550        16oh2tksdvF4ZoNcyRPqfepNQxPEj7WeTK
GoldenStateWarriors      4.85  / +385        1LQZ9iMqz3BNLwichmPMBzs8izWtrrEPMU
Brooklyn Nets      1.70  / -144        14QgwjqmujraTy3JezyJgB6ZYULsXzC4UN
Chicago Bulls      2.17  / +117        1H7LnGmzDsUNtoeLSCekgWjUdCD5jaJMEg
Los Angeles Clippers      1.50  / -198        1DjD4rLWZenxqV38J9Q4Pv7sdmkQ1UzTkH
Memphis Grizzlies      2.58  / +158        139S6svT2VfJEcqPqRobKy4yscxtetYis1
Indiana Pacers      1.28  / -354        1E5bXH7vSoVBVDfcpH4AyvLxaHbwr5LsSE
Atlanta Hawks      3.69  / +269        199SptXiZ7VGAcmGMRw9RTMa6Y3Kp8yXTn
San Antonio Spurs      1.09  / -1101        1NpHHGt2aNeKXMt6Tdm5uBjLfVUF2Uv62h
Los Angeles Lakers      7.32  / +632        17djy9h6Dztnq6UZoK5TxpA1Ur8nbXzHm8
Miami Heat      1.02  / -4975        1GFcEC34ht9FvMojA3Z1mAsP43Bd4nH4ax
Milwaukee Bucks      25.00 / +2400        1Hg2ZX52bLmBVMjWM7G7LMNUNceAG7rfGo
OklahomaCityThunder      1.04  / -2481        1AWNhPY11wuXQgL8cQfLtoerWNMW1EZ96x
Houston Rockets      11.00 / +1000        1PS3f8oKZ9tZqtNdUTgx1zoDm7Nn37Gpup

Betting will close for each series after the first match has started. As always, bets between 0.1 - 10.0 BTC accepted, just send your bet to the corresponding address after you've made sure that you can receive payments to your sending address. Good luck Smiley

[edit] Okay so that table is not very attractive but I hope you'll find the relevant information there.

[edit2] And to clarify, these bets are for the playoff series, not individual games. The lines should not see any movement unless something unexpected happens with the lineups etc.

No prob. The site has been up and down all day, it was accessible for a moment, but now it's down again. Like I said, I'm definitely looking for a better host, but obviously it's not that simple. In any case, there's no sense for me to post any games until the site is accessible all the time. Hopefully you'll find something on the NBA series bets.

Site seems to be working again. I've already got UFC and NBA up and gonna start working on the rest of the games next. It's a shame that we missed some of the early games though, sorry about that.

Alright guys, I think the time time has come for me to retire Blockbet. Obviously with the NBA and NHL heading into the playoffs and soccer leagues with their summer breaks, there will be less games to cover over the summer, and I've made nothing but losses on baseball up to this point.

It's been a great experience and a lot of fun, but it's also been a full-time job with no days off, so a small break from everything will be welcome. Also the sportsbook game is a lot more crowded than it used to be, and let's face it, some of these new guys can offer more features than we do. I knew from the start that it won't take too long for guys with more technical knowledge and more time to invest to come along, and I wish nothing but good luck for them. The sportsbooks offerings are now a lot stronger that what they used to be, and I'm glad to have been a part of that process.

I'm gonna stay involved with Bitcoin, I have a lot of faith in the currency. I also have a couple of other ideas that I want to work on, and I can't do that with Blockbet taking so much of my time at the moment. Hopefully one of those ideas will some day become bigger than what Blockbet could ever dream of being!

I'll get to work on payouts from yesterday in a moment. Outstanding NBA bets (playoff series starting later today) will be returned. After that I'll probably shut down the site (server rent is almost finished anyway) and lock the thread.

It's been a crazy ride with a lot of ups and downs, peaks and valleys, and a valuable learning process. So with that, I want to thank everybody for their support. Thanks for playing!

-Paul

Update: Site is now closed. Thank you for your support.
