Noviz, could you give me a hint how to implement good anti-duplicate account measure? =) Just keep in mind - this is bitcoin, not credit cards used to fund account.

I know a bit about online security. And running 10 virtual boxes with VPNs set to different IP address seems like an easy solution against any anti-duplicate measure right now. =)

Remember - there are no 100% secure websites. And you can't do it. What you should try to do - make it economically nonsense to exploit "flaws" (just like bitcoins 51% attack - it can be done, but with this amount of power you can get much more legitimate way).

Where I was mistaken - amount of incentive needed to make people try to use this "flaw".

Ok fair enough, I see your point... but what surprised me was that you didn't seem to have put any thought into duplicate user security at all, judging by your previous posts. I suppose the anonymity of bitcoins compared to credit cards is one of the fundamental pitfalls that gambling sites will have to cope with.
But I still think you were abit naive in thinking that no one would try to exploit the flaw Tongue If its there then someone will always exploit it.

I put more global measures in place preventing large scams. Small scams.. I assume this is just business operation expenses? =))

My current measure is to control it manually. And prevent it early. Also I have some hard prevention mechanism in place which keep site from loosing many coins at once. I have some ideas how to make it more sophisticated and automated, but current profit from this project does not make any sense to do it (just like it would not make any sense for someone to build bot for this site - too much time and too little profit).

I am more interested in... if 26 "free" bitcents per hour is interesting for people, will 2 bitcents interesting as well? Where is this line where it become economically not worth it?

There's pretty much no way you could verify user uniqueness without involving some more official channels..

IPs, emails, bitcoin addresses, forum users, cookies, sessions, system hash, etc etc can all be generated unlimited for free or faked.

Anonymity definitely has its downsides when it comes to enforcing security.
