Still shows 0. 

BlockExplorer implemented service limits, no more than one query per second or the request's IP gets banned.  Is that possibly the problem?

Since the amount of wagers made will never go down, couldn't the site simply use a fallback to last known value when there are issues in calculating the total wagered?

OOPS!

1G5apmPvo2iTtmkNWAHTCET7Y842Ufijs8 did not understand how BitLotto works and just sent 10 BTC for one entry!

Dear 1G5apmPvo2iTtmkNWAHTCET7Y842Ufijs8,

One transaction = one hash = one entry! 

You will need to send 0.25 BTC 40 times in 40 different transactions in order to create 40 different hashes for your 40 different "lotto tickets".

Hopefully you will get a 9.75 BTC refund so you can send 39 more separate transactions.

I just saw that too and slapped my forehead. It's pretty clear in the rules to send .25 btc each so I'm not sure that it would be right to mess with the address by sending money back. It could be construed by players as invalid removal of funds. I wouldn't take that stand but I could see it being held by some.

I know that the 9.75 or 10 will get refunded.  BitLotto always refunds all bad entries (too small or too large) - usually after or near the drawing. 

It is just a matter of when and how much (9.75 or 10).

I think that's good but sooner rather than later is better since the extra 10 btc misrepresents the jackpot in the meantime.

Ideally a bot would do th refund almost immediately so players can see there mistake and re-submit more tickets before they change their mind and decide not to play.

Doing it after the draw is the worst case and I'd even argue maybe invalid since players may decide to play based on the jackpot size.

So it is.  That was odd though, I got a response, but just a blank page.  If it happens again I'll try to better record what I'm seeing.

Because if you win and it sends the winnings back to the same address it may not be available to you. It depends how the addresses are allocated/managed by the wallet. They may send from an address that is not the one you would receive on. eg. MtGox sends on pretty much some random address different form the one in my account.

Oppps  Embarrassed  gambling whilst drunk, never a good idea - lucky that I didn't send it in to a bitcoin black hole - I shall resubmit the 10 BTC in little 0.25 chunks later so that the total remains the same, I'll do this either when my 10BTC has been returned or on the 6th March if still not sent back by then - sorry for the confusion folks  Grin

edit: I played after finding through a search http://www.bitlotto.com/addresses.html & missed out on seeing the home page http://www.bitlotto.com/ which is why I messed up - it's quite clear on the home page, but no so obvious on the addresses one, maybe that should have a prominent link to the home page on it to make it idiot proof - I was wondering why the current total of wagers wasn't showing on the page that I used, now it's all clear  Smiley

I like this online wallet as it lets you keep the same address for sending & receiving it seems, unless I messed up with that too  Cheesy

Blockchain.info is good. It sends from an address in your wallet and I think it even has a dropdown box to choose which one. Recommended.

I have used both StrongCoin.com and BlockChain.info wallets to buy lottery tickets and they both work.  I do not know about any of the other wallets.
