Hi everyone,

I'm Peter Willemsen. I like programming and just discovered Bitcoin. My next hobby project was a Bitcoin game, a virtual mining game I just done in a weekend called Goldminer using Bitcoin RPC api.

You can view the site here: http://83.160.248.111:8080/goldminer

Goldminer is a virtual mining gambling/game for Bitcoin. At the beginning of the game, you see 8 rocks. Under one of those rocks is gold hidden, when you find gold, the jackpot, including your deposit is for you.
There is also a little consolation prize, when you find silver, you get 50% of your deposit back! The other 50% goes to the jackpot.
When you lose, your deposit goes to the jackpot.


It is important to look in our site above if there is something in the jackpot, or else you play for nothing.
The price for playing goldminer is the following:

1 try (0.01 btc)
2 tries (0.02 btc)
3 tries (0.03 btc)
3 tries (free)


When you choose to pay more than 0.01 btc, you'll also get a locked jackpot. That means, that if you start playing. Nobody else can play for one minute, so that you are the only one who can try to get the jackpot.
People that were playing at the moment you start, can finish their game.
Otherwise, when you decide to play for 0.01 btc, other can too, and there might be a chance that somebody else gets your jackpot, while you are playing. You will allways get your deposit back when you found gold, even if someone else has the jackpot, so you can try again for free.

If you want to test the game, to see if you like it, you can choose 3 tries free. You can play for free, but you can't win anything. It also doesn't lock the jackpot.
We can recommend choosing free play for the first time, so it's easy to get familliar with the game.

Also, a small fee (10%) will be hold over everyting that goes to the jackpot, to keep this site up to date and running, and to pay the transaction fees.

Please let me know what you think!
The site itself runs on my laptop I use for development, so the site can be offline some hours in a day.  Roll Eyes

Edit [5. jul]: Fixed menubar.

Are you on iOS? My iPad doesn't work either. I'm aware of the problem and I will try to fix when I'm done at school. Smiley

Yeah it was kind of weird behaviour, in Linux chrome, firefox as well it works. Just saw the bug in Windows Server 2008 at school. I've never seen that before... It's fixed now.

Is it allowed that I put a link to my site in the wiki page "Sites that accept Bitcoin?"
