You didn't take into account the jackpot, which is continuously changing your expected ROI as it grows and resets

ah, yes that is true.... that is kind of a wild card, though... some thoughts on it:

Also, "expected ROI"... hehehehe. gambling and ROI... I like it!

chance of hitting the jackpot (Assuming equally likely to be on any tile)
9 rows for a total of 45 tiles:
row 1: 2.22% (1/45)
row 2: 2.25% (1/40) but... it is also possible you hit it before, so then the percentages add together (4.47%)
row 3: 2.86%[7.32% total chance to land on jackpot if you get to this row]
row 4: 3.33%[10.11%]
row 5: 4.00%[14.11%]
row 6: 5.00%[19.11%]
row 7: 6.67%[25.78%]
row 8: 10.00%[35.78%]
row 9: 20.00%[55.78%]

unfortunately, the jackpot is a random amount (increasing as the game is played), but.... if you just played at 1 FC, you have just as much a chance to hit it as if you played at 4000 FC, so....
try to get the jackpot after it reaches greater than 44 FC, by playing on the 1 FC level..... wow...

Also, one might want to note that your chances of hitting the tile are technically slightly more complex... there is a 5 in 45 chance it is on the top row and a 1 in 5 chance you choose that cell, but that simplifies to 1 in 45. you will find this true for all rows.

How's that?

How's that?

Great! You've spent a lot more time thinking about it statistically than I have

Some other info:

- Jackpot grows by getting 1% from losing bets.
- When a game is generated, there's a 1 in 25 chance that a jackpot square will be included.
- If a jackpot square is included in the game, each row / column has exactly the same chance of having the jackpot on it (1 in 45) with the following rather obvious condition: The jackpot can't be on the same square as a mine.

Perhaps you could tell me how it happened What were you doing at the time? What browser is it? What's your User ID?

One way it could happen:

- You play games totaling -2 FC.
- At this point balance should say 0.
- Then the connection to the feathercoin blockexplorer for some reason reports 0 from a call to check your deposit address.
- Together with your played games totaling -2, the overall total balance would be -2.

In that case, the error would be temporary as hopefully the blockexplorer will start reporting the correct deposit total again.

That's all just guesswork at this point, but I'll look into it further.  Thanks.

Unfortunately my guess in the previous post was correct...

UPDATE 2013-04-24:

Some balances are currently being reported as negative; Don't Panic! This is a direct consequence of the feathercoin blockexplorer going down for maintenance, and things should return to normal once that's back again. Meanwhile I will think about a redesign that is less susceptible to this happening in future.

Balances currently being reported are [Real balance minus coins deposited].

Hi, I can only imagine this issue is temporary. Could you please try again and let me know. I'm still working on a more efficient way to check the deposit addresses for transactions.

Thanks.

Hi Fuzzy bear, sorry for the inconvenience, this is the exact same issue that has a paragraph written about it in the OP. It has to do with a temporary connection problem communicating with the feathercoin block explorer.
