Can you make a profit off this game if you're good enough?

I'd say yes: The entry fees on the challenges range from 0.25$ to 0.75$. If you set a new highscore it seems that you get your entry fee doubled right away.

There are two kinds of win systems:

In the "Top Spread" games you must attain a win streak of X people trying and failing to beat your score to get a big price. The prices are gift cards mostly, there is one Tetris and one Asteroids challenge for 1 BTC and a Tetris Challenge for 250$ currently. In addition the top 5 in the leaderboard get paid money to their balance for every player that tries and fails to beat their score.

In the "Bonsai" games the entry fee of everyone that fails to beat the current highscore is added to the jackpot. The person to hold the Highscore at end of round (60 minutes as far as I could observe) get's the jackpot.



The games currently on the site are: Tetris, Asteroids and Simon Says.

So yes this thing is completely skill based. If you're good at playing those games you likely come out at a profit.


Edit: @OP If it is possible I suggest you change the thread title to "Win Bitcoin by playing Asteroids and Tetris". Because the current thread title might look like a scam to people knowing that Bitcoins are worth more than 0.25$ and they're likely to not even look at it. At least that was the case for me. It took me a second look at the post count to look at it, because with 10 pages of replies there must be something interesting in here.


Reason for Edit 2: corrected descriptions of the challenges.

Thanks for the awesome comment. If you set the new high score, you get your play fee credited back to you.

Nice to see it growing. Pocket rocket is a nice mixture of Snake and Tron, but kind of hard, I will need a lot of practice.

Wcave is one of those "fly something through a cave" games, press a button to fly up release button to go down, dodge obstacles. In this instance it's a string of 7 dots. It has a nice minimalistic look.

I have a suggestion for the site. I think you should merge the bonzai games and the regular win-streak games. As it is now, if you score a very high score in a win streak game, people will get scared away from playing that game, since they probably wont be able to beat the score, and if they do beat the score, then even fewer people will play it and they wont make any money anyway. On the other hand, the bonzai games always rewards a high score, since you will get the money when the time expires, but the starting pot is too low to make it lucrative for the players. I realize you can't have many dollars in the starting pot each hour. My suggestion is therefore that you change the games so that you win the prize in one of the ways; either if you reach the win streak, or if you are number one when the time expires (for example after a week). That way the players wont be scared away, since they will have a better chance of winning the gifts.

Edit: Also, I liked the free games with prizes a lot. You should do more of those. To really make your site better you need more customers/players, and this might be a good way, as well as my suggestion above.

Well the flaw in your idea is that also in the Bonzai Games, if you set a highscore that's the highscore to beat for everyone that plays after you until the timer runs out. It just isn't properly updated on the fron page display. So even if you combine both modes it doesn't change the fact that as soon as someone sets a high highscore you have to beat that score in order to get anything.

But you are right the site needs more players, and I agree that high highscores will scare people away, when they can't get close to that score in free play.

This is why I posted my strategy for tetris on the site's forum.

Good idea. As the site grows the starting pot for bonsia games will get higher. Otherwise it will just be one or two people playing to win the $5 or $10 starting pot.

Folks shouldn't get intimidated by the top score. Keep in mind even if you don't have the top score, you'll make money as long as you are on the leaderboard. So you could have the 3rd or 4th highest score and still make money.

Bitcoins will be remove as a prize for a short while, while we try and get the limitation removed that paypal placed on our account.

Giving away bitcoins as prizes is an issue with paypal.
