So, last month I got a payment for my sig for 0.24. Since I figured 'who gives a fuck, its free money anyway' I put it on 1broker and used it to leverage long BTC. Long story short the crash after silk road shutdown caused a margin call and I was left with 0.03 in. So I figure what the hell, I'm going to put it into primedice. I'm trading using the equivalent of a martingale, but with 33% chance of winning (3x payout) rather than the normal 2x payout. I leave it running overnight, lo and behold, today, somehow its up to almost 0.1 BTC! So I withdraw the 0.1 to my wallet, and figure I'm going to be done because I don't want to lose it all. Then I figure, "why not invest in Just-Dice". So I send my money there, to invest.

However, I was short the transaction fees, and really wanted to have at least 0.1 to invest otherwise its sort of silly. So, I start gambling again. Only, fortunately for me, I can't stop. Believe it or not, I just gambled my way up to having 1.07 BTC in just-dice. So I withdraw the 1.00 (I'm not joking, I really did, http://blockchain.info/tx/ebeb8438e580851b74710e66480a41a5a0aa3e3fc027216410a86dc73969fd50) and figure I may as well fuck around with the 0.07 remaining. Within 2 minutes I lose it.

But who gives a fuck, through playing dice games I turned 0.03 into 1 BTC! Sorry if this sounds like gloating, its just after scorning those games for so long (this is literally the first time I've ever played a dice game) having this happen sorta blew my mind.

Everyone assumes you always lose when you gamble. Really, on average you lose about 1% of your bet.

Well, it sounded you had some bad luck and the gambling gods decided to make you just lucky enough to get it up to 1 BTC. Good move that you withdrew that. I have seen a lot of people win big and lose it all. Well, gamblers will be gamblers right?

Absurdly Lucky  Undecided

I expected something like "I found a wallet on my HDD from a few years ago with 5000BTC on it"

But have fun with your 1BTC and throwing away your next paycheck  Tongue

That wouldn't be luck, that'd be being an early adopter :\

If winning a hundred dollars or so is enough to lure you back when you get your pay, then there's no hope for you.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

How many BTC did you lose before?
And God knows how many you will lose in future.
That's how gambling works: it addicts you with some wins but in the long run you always lose.

This is the first time I've done dice, lol. That's why I'm so surprised. I honestly expected to lose it, thats why I only put in 0.03
