Is there any place that actually explains what bitcoinduit is and how it works in principle? I couldn't find any. The "game rules" link on the site just links to the beginning of this thread but the thread opening post doesn't explain the rules at all, as far as I can see.

Good idea. Here, let's start writing it up. All game rule descriptions will be placed on the "rules" page and on the first post of this thread. I'll match 0.5 btc bets in each persons new rounds for their assistance in helping to describe the game.

[EDIT]

I hope I didn't freak anyone out. I was on my phone and saw what you guys said, and thought that bets hadn't been placed in rounds. Once I got home I just realized that you were talking about the bitcoin network! Oops! I hope I didn't freak anyone out! It was the first time I'd been away from the computer for more than 2 hours in the past 72 hours, so I figured that something had broken (always the pessimist) and when I checked and saw what seemed to be a problem with the application, I immediate started driving home to get it fixed.

Anyways, there was apparently no problem.

Regards,
Jonathan

Just to say thanks to jonathan for his matching .5.  Great site, and very good response to questions.  My game is at http://www.bitcoinduit.com/game/viewRound.php?id=GoodOld_DoubleTrouble and while waiting for an officially supported jackpot feature, I am manually doing one that is 6.4% of all deposits.

Thanks for that, nice to have some how-to stuff, but I have to admit - I'm still not getting the basic idea. So the game operator is betting against the participants that they won't reach some total amount? Or what?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Ponzi

It's a risk/reward game, where depending on the particular game rules and level of active betting in a round, you have a chance to win up to the % ROI listed in each game. Each person is paid out, in pyramid like fashion, and ultimately the rounds end with people going unpaid. Some people suffer so that others may win.

Sound familiar?

Think: Rational Ponzi Schemes such as US Debt and the International Monetary Fund.

They're a bit bigger than Bitcoinduit, but not for long! Wink

I updated the rules and games terminology for you pigki, it now includes the jackpot feature you just created.  On the other hand, while typing this, I see that the 3 "first" jackpot rounds for your bonus offer have already been created and you (or someone else) has already paid one out.  It seems as if your site is getting popular, I congratulate you on your great site Cheesy

Hey, fantastic!

The front page should round the pot total to three decimals. Right now it looks ugly. The actual round page should be as accurate as possible, though.
The jackpot percentage should also be listed on the front page for each round. Smiley
