Ponzi not worst than casino. If it's transparent, if you know it's a ponzi and you know this system, it's your money you can do what you want. In ponzi scheme they are winners and losers, same think in casino. You can't flame ponzi games if you support casino... In my humble opinion Smiley

Then you do not understand the very simple concept of a traditional gambling game versus a con scheme.
Its sad to see you try and ride the coat tails of real gambling casino games in an obvious attempt to gain credibility (falsely).

I for myself live in Australia, we have very firm laws where games are defined and schemes as well.
The following schemes (not games) have been determined as unfair and frequently depend on misleading clients:

Ponzi's
Pub Chook Raffles (why isnt anyone running this scheme yet Huh).
Chinese Lucky Egg game (bitcoin jewel).
Pyramid schemes that offer no products or services beyond "Pyramid scheme services".

tl;dr: Welcome to my ignore list shill.

As long as owner is not running away and participants are aware of the risk then it should be alright.

Ponzi games are similar as the hot potato games, right?

Yes, most of the time they do. I don't trust or play any of them for that reason. Plus, a ponzi is effectively like robbing somebody else and I do not feel good about it.

What I was talking about was in principle. In practice you should avoid it.

The 2 problems with ponzi games is that the owners usually play and can fix the game a bit and they usually finish by shutting down the website and keeping what's left in the ponzi wallet

I've played a few doge ponzis before and usually win. It's understanding the fact if i loose it's cheaper than going to the casino and dinner for the night.

It is less social as well, you don't construct anything playing at home when you can interact with people, getting social skills and contacts that will help you in life when you go to dinner or at a party

May be if ponzi's owners really do what they promise "24 h restart" for example, it would be gambling. But almost always they don't pay to anyone

That is the bad part..! they launch ponzi's just to scam newbies or few victims those fall into their traps..! Even if someone tries to run a fair game , 5other will pop up to ruin it.
