anyone?  Huh

24 h seems to be too short  Cry

Sadly you bought at well over the current 'chicken out' price, the only (risky) option then is to keep re-buying in the hope that someone else will stumble in & make the same mistake as you did, or re-buy a few times fast so that it looks like there is still some interest in the game at that price, I feel your pain & have been there - though never ended up as the bag holder, this game has a nasty sting in it's tail for those who over anticipate when the music will stop - just write it down to experience (learning the hard way wise) & at least it looks like you are earning a decent living with your meister skills otherwise so will make it back soon enough.

I added a new section showing the total stats for the gem. So far, it changed hands 271 times, out of which it reset 13 times (4.80%). This include both idle resets and unlucky resets.
Also, there's now verification links for unlucky resets in the "List of previous owners" section, so unlucky transactions are fully provable and transparent.

I had ti for about 5 minutes this evening, first time I even had a chance to buy all day!

That was the reasoning behind the Bears, have 3 going at once to always have one playing.  There's no waiting that way, and the game can keep going.

There seem to have been an unusually high number of random resets today, well over 3.125% - can you confirm it's just random variance.

3 resets in the last 15 buys = 20% atm

Was wondering myself and checked with today's secret – it's a random losing streak. You can check proofs yourself tomorrow when the secret gets released.

Cool, at least they were all lowish buys (unlike my only one so far of 1.73 btc last Thursday Cry)

I wonder if the random resets are needed at all any more as the 24 hour idle period will & does now always cause a reset before the price goes crazy mad & anyway if it did that's the punter's choice, or at the least make the random reset 0.3% or something less off-putting if you'd like to keep that Russian roulette frisson aspect, I believe that it would increase your take & lead to happier players.

I see your point. I don't wanna remove the random reset completely, but I lowered it to 1.5%, that's half of what is used to be.

We currently have a "lucky round" without a random reset.

Nice, I think that it works best kept as this type of game without any random resets - they're just annoying.

Another annoying thing is when ppl send in their payments with no fee, like this one by the appropriatly named 'MyGem' http://blockchain.info/tx/444879a6144f23be55d16f811436db3979b4f00f1e9e4b78811cc34f114eb5ba atm so the game just grinds to a halt for hours, would it be possible to treat these no fee payers the same as dual payments & just refund them & cancel their turn or better still tax them with a reset for doing this & to make it clear that entries without the requested/required minimum 0.0005 btc fee will just go in to some random super jackpot or something.

1 hour & counting now with no confirmations. Estimated Confirmation Time:    Unknown

I'm aware of this problem. An automatic reset would be too harsh imo. But I will implement an automatic instant refund if someone does not include a miners fee.

Fair enough, all rules & requirements should be on the first page imo as ppl will click through fast without reading any info when trying to buy the gem, that way ppl will know beforehand & also if there was an option to just buy the gem & then afterwards enter address, name, website before sending payment that would be more relaxed, whoever hits 'Send' first has 2 or 3 minutes to enter these details & send the funds.

I see that Mr 'MyGem' did pay a fee when he re-entered the current game for a second time @ 1.83 btc & also I congratulate HH Pope Francis 1st on his astute bet before that which made a cool 0.138 btc profit for the Holy See.
