While they can be useful in finding out about other casinos, something to keep in mind about these "casino review" sites is that their business model makes it virtually impossible for them to have an impartial opinion. One of the main ways they earn a profit is by sending players to casinos that pay them a commission for whatever that player ends up betting or losing. bustabit doesn't have an affiliate program, so review sites cannot earn money by recommending bustabit. For example, BTCGOSU doesn't mention bustabit at all despite it being the oldest and largest crash game.

My experience with virtually all casino-review sites (there are however a couple small exceptions) has been the only thing they care about and optimize for is their own bottom line, which generally means pushing what gives them the most affiliate returns. The casinos that give the most affiliate returns often are the worst (i.e. that's why they need to spend so much on affiliate, and they do dodgy stuff to have high margins). Ever wonder why sites like askgamblers will knowingly list and excuse outright scammy behavior like bitstarz as #1 (even defend WTF-bad practices, like seizing account balances for accidentally exceeding a software unenforced and unwarned betting limit )?

Hey, not all of us have bad intentions!  Smiley

Since I started GamblingSiteFinder.com back in 2018, I've had both Bustabit and Bustadice ranked very highly in the Crash Gambling and Dice categories. We're ranking #1 in Google for various Busta- related keywords and have happily sent hundreds (probably even 1000+) new players to BaB and BaD over the years.

My site is quite small, but I can only imagine how much referral commission we could have generated if we had referred those players to higher paying, yet inferior crash gambling and dice sites.

Something readers here might not know either is that online gambling sites approach review site owners (like myself) and offer us money in exchange for higher rankings. You wouldn't believe how many times a major competitor to Bustadice (I won't say names) has emailed me offering $$$ in exchange for removing BaB and BaD from the top positions on my site.

Yeah, your site was actually one I had in mind of thinking of exceptions. It just is unfortunately pretty small compared to some of the competitors, although I think if you expanded more with content (reviews?) (and community?) there would be some serious potential. There was one site (thebitcoinstrip.com) that I thought had so much potential and was going the right way, but then as I understood, sold to someone who just destroyed it

Check out gamblingsitefinder.com for a decent list/rankings of crypto casinos. Note: I have no affiliation or interest in it, and don't even agree with all the rankings ... but it's the only uncorrupted review site I'm aware of.

Like captain corporate said, I agree with the notion that what you guys are saying on "bad place gets good review for affiliate commission" is a bad thing but I also think that what you are missing out here is that what he was trying to say is that as long as they do not list shady casinos as good just for good income, they also do not have to list good places that have no affiliate business neither.

I mean you are still saying that "these places list bad casinos as good because of affiliate" and we get that, nobody denies that, but you are also not focusing on the part where they are not forced to show any casino they do not want to show, it is their own business and if they do not want to list you because you have no affiliate, they are free to do that.

Only thing they are responsible for is not listing bad casinos, as long as they do not list bad casinos, they can list "some" good casinos and not list other good casinos.

 That is exactly what I was trying to say. If you go to a review website and it is only good places, that means they are doing it right. lets assume there are 200 casinos in crypto world that you can review (there are probably more nowadays) and lets say there are 100 good and 100 bad ones (there are more bad ones than good ones normally but lets go with this example). What I was trying to say that, as long as none of the 100 bad ones are listed, and lets say only 80 of the good ones have affiliate system in place, any review website could go with 80 good ones. This leaves 20 good ones aside along with 100 bad ones, thats something they should do and they are free to do that.

 However the bad part which I also agree is that they get paid by bad places and list them too, which lowers their credibility. It should be the way I said, list a bit of good, remove all bad, and if you want, do not list other good ones that have no affiliate system, those all makes sense.

Anyone knows what happened with the Wang Tang dude? I am very curious about him and what happened with him. Last we heard or seen of him was the fact that he lost a ton of money, came back and gambled just a tiny amount and never to be heard from ever again. I don't know his last account and how to find it, but if anyone can find it, could you check and see what he is doing?

Moreover, when someone deletes their account and we find another account with his name, does that really even mean it is him? Another person can start with the same name with different VX and act like it is him but unless we know their IP we may never know if it is really him neither. I really hope he is doing well, the amount he lost is not a child's play, so I really wish him the best both psychologically and financially.

I don't know what there is to discuss really. If you spent money on advertisement you get more advertisement than someone who doesn't spend money on it.

That's just how it is, no reason to complain about it. At least you have extra money in your pocket that you can spend on other things Smiley

Considering how extremely profitable it is to run this casino, it seems hard to justify not trying to spend some money on advertising. If it doesn't work out, it can be stopped, but it seems like it hasn't been tried, or at least for years.

it's a business decision, and considering how much casinos spend on affiliates, SEO, and player retention I think it is a legitimate strategy. It saves a lot of money that you can spend on other things, for example working on a great product.

I don't understand the "no one advertises for free for us" complaints though.

No one knows (except daniel, admin of bustabit). I thought he will keep betting on Wangtang_V6 new account around 2 weeks ago, but until now it didn't made any bet after profited 1.5 btc. For sure anyone who have lose 297 bitcoins won't touch gambling activity for a while, doesn't matter he has lot of bitcoins or not.

All this talk of advertisement has people missing the main point: When you run a crowd-funded bankroll dice/crash site, the most effective marketing you can have is having the largest bankroll/betting limits/# of investors. It's an immediate boost to credibility and bankroll investors act as co-owners of sorts driving traffic to the site since it's in their best interest - and thereby not pushing/promoting other sites where they deem their investment to be more profitable. If, for example, Daniel decided tomorrow to eliminate bankroll investors and fund the site himself, it would have a large detrimental affect on the betting volume on the site if all other factors remained the same. As long as he has the biggest bankroll and largest # of investors, Bustabit will continue to crush it.

I don't think that's the complaint. At least my problem with most casino review/comparison sites is they pretend to be a list of "the best casinos for you to play at" but are in reality are a list of "these casinos make us the most money". Often those two lists are wildly divergent, to the point some of the biggest casino review sites literally knowingly promote some of the most worst casinos out there.

Check out gamblingsitefinder.com for a decent list/rankings of crypto casinos. Note: I have no affiliation or interest in it, and don't even agree with all the rankings ... but it's the only uncorrupted review site I'm aware of.

Does anybody know what proportion of bankroll investors are actually playing and betting at Bustabit? If as an example devans (however unlikely) decided to return the bankroll and fund the site himself, how many of those bankroll investors that play there because they have invested - would stop betting there?

If for example 50% of all users betting at Bustabit are bankroll investors then there would be a large chunk of those that would stop betting there if they withdrew their bankroll, right? So would the website be as profitable and successful without the present bankroll structure? I think the status quo suits everybody so there is no need to change anything.

I'd guess the number of investors with >0.5 btc invested who are also regular players is somewhere below 10%. Makes it *extremely* -ev to divest and reinvest in bankroll frequently, so you'd have to just be  withdrawing every so often to bet, which I'm sure happens just at a low frequency.

People understood you, even though you are trying to avoid the topic as much as you possibly can, we really really REALLY understand you. The problem here is that you ignore what the other part people are saying. We agree that "here are the greatest casinos" lists that is basically paid advertisement and affiliate, if a review website is getting paid for giving good ranking that is bad, we all agree with that.

However the part where you keep ignoring and keep not responding (and neither devans for that matter) is the simple fact that they also do not have to list all the good ones neither, if you have no affiliate, or you do not pay, that means they do not have to list you neither, they could simply act as if you never existed if they want to, that is their own business decision.

bustabit & bustadice

thanks, for the clarification, I'm aware that devans/Daniel is the owner. I have a decent % of my networth on his website, obviously I trust him.

I honestly don't expect to get real btc delution fee credit, I still think it is a bad idea to trying to reduce the bustabit bankroll.

There are so many clones out there that have better graphics, boni, more coins, VIP systems, affiliate commission etc. Still people play on bustabit and I think that is due to those two reasons.
A) Trust
B) Gigantic betting limits for whales

Reducing the bankroll will make the whales unhappy and we just had a whale who went for max win possible per hand. Obviously there are also lots of customers who enjoy watching the whale action.

I have a feeling this change will reduce the bankroll, but also the overall betting volume and overall profit for devans and investors.

I don't see any reason why the bankroll would become smaller than 5,000 BTC. At that size the commission rate is the same as it is now and investors are currently happy to be invested. A max profit of 50 BTC is still significantly higher than that of any other Bitcoin casino I'm aware of. Even WangTang_V2, the largest high roller in bustabit's recent history, only placed four bets that wouldn't have been supported by that bankroll.

In my experience high rollers are more concerned with the wager limit–which would technically still be 5,000 BTC in the scenario above–than the max profit. Of course I might be wrong and bustabit might lose out on a high roller that wanted to win 70 BTC per bet instead of 50 BTC, but that's a possibility I'm willing to accept.


So, to clarify, Bustabit has one sole owner of the cold wallet (devans) and bustadice's cold wallet had 3 multi-sig owners that require at least 2 signatures to open it?

Is this right?

When I acquired bustabit in 2018 I started using bustadice's cold wallet (2-of-3 multisig with Ryan and a "backup" party) to store most of its funds as well. Maybe I should have mentioned that to Ryan, but as he mentioned as long as the cold wallet holds enough funds to cover bustadice's liabilities it doesn't really matter to him in his role as bustadice's auditor.


I'd guess the number of investors with >0.5 btc invested who are also regular players is somewhere below 10%. Makes it *extremely* -ev to divest and reinvest in bankroll frequently, so you'd have to just be  withdrawing every so often to bet, which I'm sure happens just at a low frequency.

That's correct IMO. With some exceptions (e.g. WangTang_V2 said he was a bankroll investor in the past) I suspect there is very little overlap between bankroll investors and players.


People understood you, even though you are trying to avoid the topic as much as you possibly can, we really really REALLY understand you. The problem here is that you ignore what the other part people are saying.

Don't get me wrong: I am not complaining about bustabit not being listed on most of these sites. I understand why and don't expect them to do anything differently. I merely pointed out to two players why they can't expect unbiased reviews from these sites because of the conflict of interest that they may not have been aware of. I'm not sure why you consider that controversial :/

I strongly consider removing (parts of) my investment simply because my EV is going to be much lower without the offsite investment. I know some other bankroll investors who feel the same way.

Yes, I know that I can just deposit the offsite investment and put it in the bankroll. Third party risk is already high enough, I still wanna sleep at night.

edit: and FWIW I don't know investors who also gamble at bustabit.

The talk about review websites have moved along too much if you ask me. We get it there are websites that takes money from bad places and list them as good in return of a lot of affiliate income or even advertisement money, good for them to take what they want and not wait for others, in crypto world everyone cares only about their own pocket and nobody else.

There are also places that only list good places but remove some good places that doesn't have affiliate, which is also fine, do whatever you want it is your website. And rhavar (and mainly devans obviously) act as if they do not care about it but talks about them not being fair for not listing bustabit which is fairly one of the biggest places in crypto world, and they are right too it should be listed. To me everyone is right for their personal reasons, can we move on?

There are also places that only list good places but remove some good places that doesn't have affiliate, which is also fine, do whatever you want it is your website.

My problem is with the sites which lie. For example:

Quote
Check out our objective and unbiased reviews of all important Bitcoin (BTC) and crypto gambling sites out there – no matter what type of player you are, on our website you will find reviews of all the best BTC Casinos

and yet there's no single mention of the biggest and arguably the most important Bitcoin gambling site out there. They list the sites that pay them and ignore the sites that don't. That is the opposite of "objective and unbiased".

I do consider it a bit controversial, or at least a bit hypocritical because at the end of the day I am pretty sure you would love them if every single one of them showed bustabit or bustadice as the greatest place to gamble.

I am not saying that is exactly the reason, hell probably you yourself think that you wouldn't change your mind about them doing something shady just because they showed you at the top, and I understand why you would imagine yourself still being actively against them if they had bad casinos listed as good even if they were promoting you. But let me honest, you wouldn't be, nobody could be, it is extra business. So, I find it controversial because I think you are against them since they do not list you, that is the only reason why you are against them and all other reasons are secondary.

My name is Justin Malara and I am NOT Daniel from Bustabit.

Please, I'm looking for anyone that can help me clear my name. I've never owned a bitcoin, I've never worked or built or owned any type of software in the space - I don't even really know much about how bitcoins work outside of just surface level knowledge that I've picked up here and there.

Somehow my name has been attached to this site, and now there are people out there that believe I'm Daniel, that I own Bustabit and that I've scammed people. I've been told there is indisputable evidence that proves that I'm Daniel, but I've yet to see it or understand how or why people are coming to this conclusion. No one believes me, they think I am Daniel covering my tracks and trying to lay low. I have a extremely small social media footprint so I'm very confused how this could happen randomly.

If there are any admins/mods or anyone that has influence in regards to this thread/story that can help me get this information out, I would be incredibly thankful if you would reach out to me. I'm not sure how someone proves they are not someone, but I'm more than happy to hop on a call/video chat and do everything that I can to dispute or explain any evidence that links me to this site/industry.

I've received death threats against me and my family - please help me set the record straight.
