I was messing around with Blockchain.info's API and realized that a gambling game could be made where the players bet on what the largest transaction in the next block will be and the closest answer wins.

I'd like to hear what the community thinks about this. Would it be possible/practical to cheat this? Does a game like this already exist?

Well when practicality is the issue when cheating, I guess so when the pot money is huge. This would be an interesting game to develop. Marketing it would be the real challange to get your pie on the btc gambling scene.

Sounds like a good idea to me, if you can do the coding part. I am not aware of any other sites doing this.

They just told you how it will be gamed or cheated. The largest transaction will be the one that is made by the wealthiest player. Until a wealthier one comes along and takes it.
