  • Profit
  • If the game utilizes the jackpot feature, you may want to aim to be the last bet in order to win the jackpot
4. Game End
  • The game will end when no bets have been placed for the designated number of hours
  • 50% of the remaining pot will go to the host, 50% will go to betcoinduit.com
  • If the round has a jackpot, then it will be payed out to the last bet's address
5. Credits

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

Thanks Mason! Updated!

If anyone wants to know when the Jackpot feature has been added to rounds, get in touch with me via PM with your email address, and I'll let you know as soon as it's been implemented.

Bonus: the first 3 that start new Last Man In Jackpot rounds will have their deposit + ROI almost immediately, as I'll play those games and lock your earnings in immediately.

Regards,
Jonathan

PM sent. Can't wait to start a jackpot game  Cheesy

What happened to your promise that you would send an email as soon as the jackpot feature was implemented? I never got any email!
And because the jackpot feature became available in the middle of the night for me, I missed the chance to be the first to start a jackpot game.  Cry

Ok....

Do you still give a full refund on games that expire without any players?
It used to say so on the front page, but now I can't find any mention of a refund anywhere on the front page or in the rules.

What happens if you send more or less than the max/min bet? I may have accidentally done that. xD

Under bets disappear forever, and overbets are counted for the maximum allowable bet, with the overage amount disappearing into the void of the eternally dark ether.

Still, I'm a nice guy. How much did you lose this time? Be honest, I'm too busy to audit at the moment.

It used to say so on the front page, but now I can't find any mention of a refund anywhere on the front page or in the rules.

We do still give 100% refunds on no bet rounds, but we decided against advertising it because it seemed early on to result in punitive small bets, with 2 bet rounds expiring without host payout. It's called griefing, trolling and what have you.

So though we honor the 100% in our code, we don't feel particularly inclined to advertise that fact, mostly for those hosts safety who would expose themselves to griefing from others, looking to pot commit them.

Make sense?

Jonathan

pigki, It looks like there is a bug with your address validation check.

It tells me that all of the following addresses are invalid:

12Fz925or3w2s67BTL2sJEVHDaNmqCM1gD

The first 4 are known good addresses that have been used previously and show in blockexplorer.
The other ones are new addresses generated with my bitcoin client.

There is definitely a bug. We figured leaving our knowledge of it undocumented would be a very effective way of saying "we're in beta, so just make a new receiving address, mmk?"

Still, I'm sure we'll get to it soon. In the meantime, we're preoccupied with other tasks.

Hey! My exponential round ended! That was fast!

I'm glad to be a part of Bitcoinduit history. Tongue

We're about to roll out some interesting live statistics for Jackpot rounds. We're also going to rename "Jackpots" to "Bounties" where the same 0 - 15% Jackpot fee will exist, and the option will be renamed to "Bounty." Hosts will now be able to Deposit additional Bitcoin to separately fund a Jackpot. Let's take a look at how this will look in a game round:

Here, the host has selected 25% ROI, a Bounty fee of 15%, 0% host fees (2% to house), min/max of 0.5 to 3 BTC, with expiration of 4 hours. When this round was started, the host made a 4.5 BTC deposit to start the round - 0.5 deposit, and 4 BTC "Bounty".

ROI: 25%
Bounty: 4 BTC
Bounty Fees: 15%
Fees: 2.0%
Minimum Deposit: 0.5000 BTC
Maximum Deposit: 3.0000 BTC
Confirmations Required: 0
Expiration: 4 hours of inactivity

Deposit Total: 0.5000 BTC
Payout Total: 0.0000
Fees Total: 0.0000
Pot: 0.4425
Jackpot: 4.075

Get the idea?

Get it?

Jonathan

Hm, not really. D:

So there's going to be both a bounty AND a jackpot? Wouldn't it make more sense to just have the bounty, since they both do the same thing(reward the last bidder)?

Will the host be able to contribute to the bounty at times other than the very beginning of the round?

1. Jackpot will disappear. Bounty will be replacing it, with the rules i set forth above. The host can deposit a Bounty amount, and set a bounty entry fee, which is currently called Jackpot fee, but that's going to change in the next version.

2. I like the idea. The only logical way to approach that though, considering that this is really built to be played using the bitcoin addresses as IDs, is to use a bit of logic to poll the initial receiving address that you're given to deposit funds to, which triggers the start of the game, and if additional deposits come in on that address later in the round, those deposits will be added to the "Bounty" fund. In fact, we would publish the address as part of the round, so that anyone who wanted to could contribute to the Jackpot, and so that you'd never forget the Deposit address if you wanted to increase the jackpot. Yes that's the way to do it.

Ah, so in your example "jackpot" would be replaced with "bounty"? I think that's what confused me. I've got it now.

Making a public bounty address is a fantastic idea!

Not only is it a good idea, but we could go one step deeper and start directing the houses expired pots to the deposit address of the highest value of bounty total / total obligations of all rounds, where the round that has the best ROI receives the expired pots.

Get it?
