If you're gonna send multiple times, make sure they're from different addresses, so you have more chances to win.
Interesting. Problem though, is that people can't pick what address it comes from. They could be resending from the same address.

Yea, didn't think about that...my bad.  It's been removed from the OP.

Is there a reason you're trying to get no one to do this?

Oh, and someone could create a script to generate a ton of addresses trying to find one that converts into a decimal they want then send with that one.

Would you rather people accidentally lose money? Or someone cheat only to find out after? I'm trying to help. I want the bitcoin gambling scene to grow. I want more stuff to come. It's good for everyone. I try to help all the new ones and point out potential problems. That makes the scammers go away and the ones who really want to do something good stay around. If the gambling scene filled with scammers then no one would gamble. That is bad for me. It's in my interest to help others and have a thriving Bitcoin gambling community. Take no offense! If you don't want help that's ok, I'll leave you alone.

Sorry for sounding kind of snippy, slight headache when I posted that, and no idea where it came from:(.  No offense taken, and again, sorry.  Since you do see potential problems with this, how would you go about fixing it?   I thought it was pretty air tight, but like you pointed out, it can be exploited:(.

That's fine. The problem is that you are basing the tickets off of something the user can manipulate. The address. Something better would be to use transaction hashes.
The other SMALL issue I can see is that if someone REALLY wanted they could re-broadcast till they get a tx hash that works better. It would be harder to do though...

How about.

Their tx hash -> decimal
Then once no one enters and time runs use the a block hash from the expiry time. -> decimal

Whoever has the smallest difference wins.
(come up with something where extra btc makes that difference smaller - perhaps (calculated diff)/(btc invested) - I don't know, something like that)

I'll rejigger this then for that, and post it later on today-since no one entered.  Thanks for the advice!
