I cannot even imagine having that much money, much less to gamble with.

Considering a pizza was once sold for 10,000BTC, your perspective of 'that much money' may be completely different if you started mining in 2010.  We don't know if Nakowa is playing with BTC that were acquired when each cost $1, or $100. 

One thing is for sure.  Gamblers rarely know when to quit and it's quite likely all those winnings and more will be returning to Just Dice in due course.

 I don't care if he got 10.000 for just 1 penny , it worths a lot more now and thats what it counts.

 So you spent a penny on something , that doesn't mean it worths a penny now? You are still playing with thousands of dollars , how much you paid for them doesnt change that fact , he might lose 300 thousand dollars with one bad swing , or he could buy a house for that kind of money , so thats the power of bitcoin right now , making people careless with their coins Cheesy

Have any of you ever thought that this is nothing but propaganda by Just-Dice to reel in more gamblers and to get people to bet larger bets? 

I mean, it's working, I have never visited a gambling site, yet here I am, reading about it now and tempted to bet a few BTC.

This has scheme written all over it.  Russian or Chinese scheme.  Cause this is exactly what I would do if I had such a site.

That is indeed the power of bitcoin.  We can only speculate about the gambler's origins and what the money means to him or her, but betting 300btc in one go is betting more money than 99% of the world's population makes in a month.  Unless Nakowa has found a way to exploit JD or Nakowa is a publicity stunt by JD, the player will lose their entire bankroll sooner or later.  The player's history has all the hallmarks of an action junky who cannot resist just... one... more ... spin.

300 BTC is more money than 99% make in a month?   Lol, 300 BTC is over $40,000.  That's more than 99% make in an entire quarter and more than 5+ billion people make in an entire year. 

This has scam written all over it.  It's Just-Dice propaganda written all over it.

if he has a lot of coins, more than just-dice.com for example, then yes he could beat the house

Having lots of coins or placing larger bets means absolutely nothing - it does not alter the preset odds in any gambling game of chance.

Like all games of chance, the odds are preset and are always stacked against you.

What this means is that the longer you play the higher the odds you will lose.  Play long enough and the house will always win.

Mathematically this guy can't keep winning.  If he does then he is cheating or this is nothing more than a publicity stunt which is obviously working really well.

no, with a Martingale strategy or the like, you can be longer irrational but successful than the house may stay solvent. That's why casinos have limits.

I recall somewhere that Nakowa was into bitcoin 2011, so early adopter.
