DT scored 4.4 stars in Bitcoin Reviewer's Dragon's Tale review.

The last time I tried Dragon's Tale was in 2011, and I was surprised to see how much the game has improved. Great casino, keep up the great work, Teppy.

Dragon's Tale is going strong - there are 64 players online as I write this. Stakes are anywhere from "kSAT" (1000 Satoshis) per bet to 10+ BTC per bet, and we still give away free Bitcoins to get comfortable with the game.

Dragon's Tale certainly has the greatest concentration of Bitcoin enthusiasts of any virtual world - it's a great place to hang out with fellow Bitcoiners.

What does the "return" stat mean in the monkey roulette mean? Expected return (being 100% break even)?

What does the "return" stat mean in the monkey roulette mean? Expected return (being 100% break even)?

It simply means the return that has actually happened since the last reset of the stats.  Monkeys are IIRC the worst rate of return of any game, not that it's by much, being slightly under 95%.  The rate of return in the stats is simply past history.  Especially for the nosebleed payouts 100x+, a few fluke events can skew the results greatly.

The "real" expected value is somewhat below 95%.

My basic advice?  Don't play monkeys.  They're evil.

Should only be played for the purpose of leveling up, or if you don't mind degenning away your money on a losing luck game.

"In 464 Runs, 50 Hits for a 119.16% Return"

This means that the monkey has been released from his cage 464 times (# of games played), and of those, 50 landed on that particular square, and if you had placed an equal bet on the square each of those 464 times, your return would be 119.16% of those bets. (You would have made money.)

The returns include the community squares where you get a prize regardless of where you bet.

This is a historical return - it doesn't mean the monkey will continue landing there as often in the future (the monkey moves randomly.)

OK, thanks for the explanation. As I read "jackpot" I thought that maybe the pot increased as more bets were placed and no prize was given, and higher than 100% would mean positive expected value from that point.

It seems like there isn't much to do when you start playing, unless you deposit money.

Without depositing? Yes, it's very hard to make significant amounts. (It's been done though.)

If you deposit? It's a casino - you'll lose a little bit more often than you win. but plenty of people have had huge wins. Several 10+ BTC wins in the last week in fact.

As someone who has played there a bit, what Teppy said is spot on. It's a casino. "The house wins." If they don't win from you, they win from someone else. So essentially either you're going to be losing money, or someone else is.

So "hard to make BTC?" That depends. Are you lucky? Nobody knows until you play. Much like hitting up a slot machine and either losing $100 or making $500,000. The only way to know is after the fact.

It's also worth factoring in the purchase of an account and whether or not your mentor shares "treasure." Highly-used accounts are less ev-, and accounts with mentorship over other active users are practically a revenue stream. Theoretically, you could simply compile statistics on various games along with strategies to "sell" to users in exchange for them selecting you as their mentor. It's theoretically possible, then, to "work" in Dragon's Tale for service fees.

You'd probably need to be on the spectrum to actually compile all the relevant data, though, heh. -Or a income-less kid with a ton of free time and hands-off parents.

This is a great idea as well, and it's how I got my mentor (someone went through a couple hours teaching things like the seed planting, how to determine, generally, if it's going to be profitable or not and stuff). I had no issue taking them on as a mentor as a result!

That 5% edge goes down quickly as you level. And about half of the edge, currently, goes to those in your mentor chain, not to the house.

Factor in skill games and various in-game giveaways and contests, and the true house edge is around 2%.

Dragon's Tale is great, they recently updated so now you can play games with just one ksatoshi! Which you can get quite a few of by just running around and talking to soldiers. It takes a little bit to get the hang of but it's really a pretty great game. Added a new game or two as well since the last posting, if I'm not mistaken.

Great fun been playing it recently good helpful community easier to gather Bitcoins then a faucet but learning curve is tough. If you have some time to kill this is more fun then a typical casino.
