And the reason I don't like Strikesapphire is because I have to play with other players and find a time when they are playing too (but I like slots because it's simple and quick). If you don't get my attention in 15 seconds, I usually leave.
Well... we're working on building it up. Try back in a month or two and hopefully you'll be able to find a game going on
As for bitcoin games, I like the gambling games that are quick and easy...where you deposit some coins, play a few rounds,
win or lose some money, and go live life. Minefield, BTC Riches, Luckycoin, and Kamikaze are good for me.
That's perfectly rational. I think there's a difference between a site that is basically a game played in Bitcoin, and a site that's a casino that uses Bitcoin as a deposit/withdrawal method. We do have an extra step to deal with.
EDIT: Oh my goodness. I just tried to deposit bitcoins onto Strikesapphire and you have to Skype with me?? No thanks. I'll go to another site
Make that two extra steps -- sometimes. But if you're seeing that, you're probably in the US, meaning we can't take your bets. Horses for courses. It'd be fun to make some one-stop "Sapphire-lite" mobile Bitcoin games down the road though, that might fit the bill. We couldn't be involved in making money off of it, but I'll throw out one little anarchist idea I had, and maybe some coder here wants to work on it with me:
Suppose we sold a $0.99 mobile app that was like a tiny 10-game casino on your phone... the trick is, some person or persons in a local area set up a bluetooth network, load in bitcoins, decide which games at which stakes they want to make available, and then act as the bank... while other people nearby get on that network and play blackjack/roulette/craps against them, or play poker against each other, with or without a rake. Little covert BTC casinos could spring up anywhere, anytime...
