In itself, this site is great and novel and I think it's perfect as it is. The others are right to say to put an ad on top as well. I would go one step further and say that people should pay 0.1BTC a month in order to have a 'login' where they can sit and wait for the flower to open (this will stop the common thieves) or perhaps even give 10 different 0.1BTC rewards instead of a single 1BTC reward to insure that everyone gets a chance.
To be honest, there seems to be a money making opportunity in this somewhere, at least with those who would already be wasting their time on ponzi games.
At least SomethingAwful goons haven't seen this and made a bitcoinvagina.com yet

There sure is, and that's why I like this idea so much.Allow me to address your concern by using my toaster example again:
Someone already mention to make it too expensive for the thieves that make bots to game the system. With my idea, I would welcome those thieves with open arms. Of course they won't come, but they'll be welcome nonetheless.
Example: I have a site that sells toasters. Upper-end toasters at competitive prices. I have a large enough mark-up on some of these toasters that I'm willing to offer another 10% discount to the first person who sees the Bitcoin pop up from the toaster. Therefore if a bot builder games the system, he's more than welcome to use the 10% coupon he just won to buy the toaster where I still may make a 5-10 percent profit. My toaster site is listed on the Magic Bitcoin
listing site, so I know I'm getting organic traffic=buyers from there.
I'm able to list my site for free on Magic Bitcoin
makes its profit from the referral programs that some, not all, of the sites have in place. They'll be no need to clutter this site up with Google adsense, banner ads, etc. The site owner would have a couple/few micro sites himself, that he'll be able to direct traffic to.Magic Bitcoin
will even get more traffic from every site that's listed on it. How? Well, underneath my animated toaster is a line that reads: Visit Magic Bitcoin to view when the last time the 10% Off Bitcoin materialize.
Someone who came to my toaster site from outside the system I just described, clicks it, wondering what this could be all about and maybe convert another person over to using Bitcoin, if nothing else.
I already stated this about Magic Bitcoin
, although not called that at the time:
Now, further imagine a site dedicated to listing every site that has incorporated this gimmick (sorry for incorporating the word incorporated numerous times in this post, as well as the several uses of parentheses I incorporated to explain myself, but I can't help it because Bitcoin excites me--excites me so much that you may have noticed I incorporated the use of this parenthesized statement after the wrong word--but I digress). This possible site would not only list the above mentioned sites in categories, but also list the exact times (clock, as well as maybe the number of) the Bitcoin was last revealed at each site. Furthermore, it would show a "hot list" of sites fast approaching the deadline of when the Bitcoin is suppose to be revealed--colored coded red/orange/yellow. It could even list who the winners are.
