yes you are correct that towards the end of the game those left "holding the bag" lose their bet. It is a classic game of fear and greed. You want to put more money in to get it doubled vs you are scared you will lose it. The game resets every 24 hours at a known time, so everyone knows how far we are out.

(Personally I like the games better when they reset XX hours after the last bet, as that encourages people to keep them going, but this works fine as well)

false information!

users entering and not winning in the round will get most of their bitcoins back. there is an additional 'gameover fee' which will be kept, but more than 80% should be returned.

Well yes, it says "Anyone left unpaid will split what's left of the bank over everyone who has been un-paid (this is weighted by how much you entered in to be doubled) - the 2% fee per person [(1% hosting fee) + (1% game restart) = 2% fee] (to their address)!"

At the moment, this would be 0.15084 BTC, divided by some 25 entries -> nothing.

Or how do you think everyone that "wins" gets double his investment, and everybody else gets 80% back?

ooh I'm sorry Sad

This was clearly my fault. must have mixed it with sth. else

Is this a programming glitch?



At this time, it looks like there are 4 hours + 1 hr. It says 4:60:50 when it should be 5:00:50

Yeah, still trying to figure out the clock. I haven't had sleep in like...forever -.-
I changed it back to the current time, so when the clock goes to 24:00:00...the new game should start.

The trick to success with these games is getting in early, so if you want to play, join this round now!

Very true, its only been 1hr 30 min since the round started, it will refresh at Midnight EST or 00:00 EST. So a rather early time right now in my opinion.

Things I would like to see in the API:
  • current server time/time till next reset/round/current round time
  • list of all players with status and time they entered and value
  • multiple API calls in same request
  • API version

Thank you for the nice game Smiley

This will be available closer to tonight (as I've got stuff I've got to do today).
I will make the new API version v3.x with these features as I'm going to change how the API layout is. (api/vX.X.php?....)
Functions will be like:
api/v3.0.php?function[]=getPlayersPaid&function[]...etc etc

I'm not a fan of the "hold the bag if you're at the end" either, but I can't complain with a payout in < 4 minutes.  Smiley  I have some ideas on making a fairer version of this game, but I lack programming knowledge to apply such ideas.

Well, let me know your ideas and I'll try to encompass them into BitDouble.
