Hello,

I'm wondering if there are any websites where I can bet on "skill" based games? What I mean is for example the games over at satoshimines.com and bustabit.com. Obviously they're luck based, but they feel like skill - or rather, my own fault for losing (it's still luck, but they feel that way).

Heck, pure skill games (if there are any of those) would be even better of course.

I'm not looking for rolling dice or similar.

Thank you!

Edit: I should mention that I'm not looking for poker games or other card games. Reason being that I either suck at them (I would probably have bigger chance of winning when rolling dice at 2% chance to win) or don't know how to play at all. I haven't been interested in playing cards the last 30 years of my life and I'm most likely not going to start enjoying them now - even though poker might have a higher chance of winning compared to other games.

Edit 2: Sports betting is also out of the question. Been there, done that.

I did, however, find BitKong.com which is a simple and fun game. I guess that's more what I'm looking for. Simple and fun "unique" games, not the usual slots, dice, rolling games that every site has.

Online Poker involves the most amount of skills.  At BetcoinRakeback.com you also get the highest rakeback in all of online poker at 53% to 83%.  That means you would have to be slightly above average to guarantee a profit.

Thanks and take care!

Thanks for the suggestion! However, I probably should've mentioned that poker (or other card games) doesn't interest me. Mostly because I suck at them (or don't know how to play at all).

Any other suggestions? :)

Poker is probably the only game that skill will give you an edge but either way it's still gambling. Try playing video games for rewards if you really are skilled at them then you don't have to worry about stupid petty little card games.

Bustabit is skill based game not sure about the satoshimines though. I'm currently playing bitcoinspinner which is skill based. There are many sites just find something that interests you. Good luck

Oh, I didn't mean actual skill. What I meant was games that give you the illusion of being based on skill, or give you the illusion that it was your own fault that you lost. For example, playing Satoshimines gives you the illusion of being your own fault if you don't cash out but pick too many squares. Bustabit does the same when you can always cash out and it's your own fault for waiting too long.

Obviously both of those games are based on luck and whatever multiplier/mine position the server chooses.

Sorry if that wasn't clear - English isn't my primary language.

Yeah, I'm sure there are many sites out there but I'm looking for suggestions. I've gone through many sites but most just offer the simplest stuff, dice and roulette etc. I'm hoping to find something a bit more fun than that. I'm currently looking into Bitcoinspinner that you mentioned - how do you suppose it's "skill-based" like Bustabit? It seems random to roll the wheel, even if you get to pick the strength.

Ah ok, we'll I prefer games that do actually require skill haha. Pretty much all casinos want you to feel like you were so close to winning so that you'll try try again (and in the end with their edge they'll always win of course.

Right, I think I need to rephrase again (or stop drinking these beers).

I would prefer pure proper skill based games of course, but not card games. If there are none, then games that give you the illusion of it all being your own fault (again, like Bustabit or Satoshimines). Not just some casino slot machine - they might give you the feeling that you were "so close to winning", but that's not what I mean.

Sorry for not being clear enough. :(

There are not many or almost any skill based games except for poker. Rummy is a game I have seen in some places, but its also a card game. This is mostly because skill would mean you can get an edge over the casinos, and they obviously don't want that. So only multiplayer games are your options.

If you mean that feeling, then Plinko can be called as being one such game.

Based on what I have seen so far, in regards to illusions, betcoin.ag would be your number 1 choice. Cheesy

Thanks and take care!
Every skin on WPN offer 27% flat rakeback + weekly leaderboard prizes and if you consider that betcoin.ag charge a prodigious and unlike higher rake than the skins on WPN, your 53% to 83% offer is nothing!

First of all, you're wrong, not that it's much of a surprise. Secondly, nice feedback.

You could try playing Roulette at Bitsler or at one of the moneypot roulette sites. Low house edge, and when you lose, it's kinda your own fault for picking the wrong number (like picking the wrong tile at satoshimines). You could also try sliders at bubblesbit or bit-exo. It's kinda like dice, except you pick the winning ranges and if you lose, you kinda think it's your fault.

Not sure if there are any others that aren't card games.

Yeah, I've tried the sliders and all of Bitsler's games. They're not at all like Satoshimines or Bustabit in my opinion. At least I don't get the same feeling when losing (or winning). Thank you for the suggestions though!

It's absolutely pointless and it's a waste of time in trying to explain where you're wrong and misinformed.  In no way shape or form is the 27% RB offered on a WPN skin even close to the 53 - 83% RB offered at BetcoinRakeback.com, even if Betcoin's rake in some games is slightly higher.  And the leaderboards for ACR doesn't matter at all because you'd have to rake from hundreds to TENS of thousands in a week's time to win anything meaningful.

Also nice feedback:

Huh

Correct! As you charge a prodigious rake, your similiar rakeback offer compared to WPN skins is worse.  


And the leaderboards for ACR doesn't matter at all because you'd have to rake from hundreds to TENS of thousands in a week's time to win anything meaningful.
You have to rake around $100 in Sit & Gos to get $50 + a $55 tournament entry. Nice story though. Cheesy


Also nice feedback:
Get 5 BTC for proof who Game Protect scammed and for how much?

-> until today, no one was able to deliver proof of their false and misleading claims.

-> you refering to false and misleading claims, definetely confirms your "reputation" Cheesy

Ahh, you might missed that part, but your betcoin.ag is in free fall recently on Alexa Global Rank: 165,138 - 58,004 = 52% down within 2 months!

So who is right and who is wrong?

You are doubtless the number 1 in giving illusions...

Please, please take your dispute somewhere else. I don't mean to be rude, but you two are really off-topic. I'm still looking for fun games to bet (hopefully win) Bitcoins on.

I also said I'm not interested in card games so those posts have nothing to do with my question. Good pun though.

They offer other games as well and I swear they are the number one illusion site you can find in the internet. Smiley

I've made 10mbtc from $1 which is 1mbtc it's fun as every 4-5 spin I'm winning by making double I started playing them when they were doing promotion and providing 2mbtc free to play.
