yes.  The wagers time is recorded by the bitcoin clients wallet. The transaction can be verified at blockchain.info.

Yes, in general, but we recommend users pay at least the default transaction fee when making late bets. Our official rule is that a bet needs to have at least one confirmation before match start (or at least soon after it). This doesn't usually take more than a couple of minutes to happen.

There have been a few cases when we've got very large bets hours afterwards, even after a match had ended, and there is currently no way to check for possible double spending on these, so those bets have to be voided for security reasons.

We hope we can add at least Bundesliga soon to our selection. We've rearranged our site, offering more bets, but for the moment that also means that parlay bets are offline due to the increased number of bet options. Maybe our parlay system wasn't really good enough to begin with anyway.

Have you guys put in any consideration of adding college basketball games? I know totals aren't found on some sportsbooks, but most have spreads.

Sorry for the delay. I think we are able to add more leagues to our selection, so the question is... what or which leagues? I know NCAA basketball is very popular, but like you said I can't guarantee that all games and selections will be available every night. I'll take a look into it anyway.

Don't forget NBA returns tonight with 9 games, we'll have those odds online very soon!

[edit] Forgot to mention that we've added more goal and goal scorer selections to our Champions League games!

It's late enough in the College hoops season that it might be worth waiting till the tournament opens up to start hosting bets.

Why do you say that? As a bookie, in the long run he's going to make money from it no matter what. More games equals more chances to win money.

It would be an interesting experiment allowing him to see what teams generate betting interest and the tournament cuts the number of teams down to a more manageable size. In think part of the problem with going full bore on College Basketball is there are just so many games, even if you try to limit it to the televised Division I games, more just seem to keep crawling out of the woodwork.

But I want to bet on New Mexico State Baptist Technical College vs University of Massachusetts  School of Bartending and Automotive Repair for the Blind & Deaf.

I agree in that aspect. As a bookie, Paul could seriously get messed up if he offers lines for some obscure cbb games that rarely people bet. A pro bettor would be all up on that—if the lines were correct. The way with televised games, however, Paul could be like "Hey, I'm only allowed bets on games that are on ESPN or on the ESPN family of networks." Something like that wouldn't be too bad. It's approximately 8-10 games per day.

He could take another route, too, and instead take action on only top 25 teams until the tournament. Then there's no way he could add more games because it's only top 25 teams. Then all of course he could determine how he would like to go, depending on the action, the amount, and his profit.

You guys do make some good points. The thing is, if we add NCAA, then there needs to be enough action on those games to make posting them worthwhile, and I'm not so sure if that is the case. Like you said, it's already easily more than 10 additional games per day to keep track of, and some people will still be disappointed if their favorite team isn't included.

It already takes a lot of time to update NBA and NHL due to the large number of games being played every day, and a lot of teams playing back-to-back. So I'm kind of hoping that people interested in basketball will find something interesting in our NBA selections. Another thing to consider is the unpredictability of NCAA games.

Football is much easier to do in the sense that there is usually a limited number of games being played each week, so we can make odds available to play much earlier and they reach a much larger audience.

As long as the transaction gets 1 confirmation before -- or soon after game time -- then it's good. There's some time where I paid 5 mins after the starting whistle, and i've been paid.

I see your point. I'm guessing you're the only person working for the book? That can definitely be difficult, so I understand where you're coming from.

Wow, people really made a lot of money on hockey yesterday. Almost all of the bets were winners, even with some surprising results in certain games (Detroit what are you doing??). Congrats.

I see your point. I'm guessing you're the only person working for the book? That can definitely be difficult, so I understand where you're coming from.

At the moment I'm the only one working on lines and payments, but I get some help elsewhere. We don't exactly generate enough profit so that we could hire people to work for us, but maybe some day... That's why I'd like to keep the betting options to the most popular games that I know get action every day. We're slowly increasing the numbers of bets and leagues though.

For the NBA and NHL, five minutes past is fine because games don't actually start before that. For football and such, it's exactly at the announced time. Of course it's better to bet early than late if it can be helped. Transactions through Tor are fine as long as they get through in time.

Yeah, should have had those games posted yesterday, sorry about that. Game winners are now online and total goals will be up soon. I'm still going through some of yesterday's transactions, there were a lot of them, so it'll take still a bit longer for the winning bets to be paid out.

Glad to hear that. Also the last of yesterday's winners have now been paid, there were a lot of them, congrats.

We've increased the minimum bet size to 0.1 BTC. Don't mean to discriminate anyone, but with the transaction fees, handling bets of 0.01 BTC just doesn't seem very meaningful. And we do recommend people use the transaction fees when making late bets to make sure the bets are confirmed before match start.

Today's early games are up and the rest are coming shortly! Not sure if I mentioned it before but we've got today's UFC matches as well Smiley
