It's the same thing right?

Right now it is the exact same game enhanced with a better database, template, and validation.

One idea someone had was to make it so rather than having the pot be distributed among the remaining players is to make the very LAST person in line inherit the remaining pot once the game ends. I feel like that would be a bit more exciting, and might go with that suggestion. Anyone for or against this idea?

Estimated release will be in approximately 5 hours.

Sounds like a good idea to me, encourages more betting and getting like a .1 return on 3 BTC bet didn't mean much.

The only "problem" I can see with that is that at the very end of a round, we'll see a ton of people rushing to put in a 0.1 bid over and over again to make sure they are the last one's in, but as long as the database can handle it, then we should be alright.

I've enabled it so the last person in line gets the remainder of the pot, instead of distributing it... Now I just have to wait till the end of the round and see if it works Tongue

+1 for last entry incentive.  Could push more payouts too if people are trying to recoup pot on expected loss.  Should be interesting.  If you're taking suggestions: make min/max limits close to each other to promote greater player throughput, or at least cap max entries.  Gives players more predictability, which I believe results in more entries.

I am debugging paying out the last person in the game. We're looking at a midnight EDT opening. I just want to make damn sure there are no bugs.

The first round will be limited to 0.1 btc, so if anything does screw up, it won't be that bad lol.

Just need to make sure end-game payouts work, and we will be up and running.
