Thanks for all your ideas and suggestions. I will think more about those, but for now I have reduced the timer to 5 hour and set minimum to 0.10 btc. As time goes on I will probably reduce the timer even further.

Also, I added timestamp to each bubble now.

5hr timer seems good.

Time stamp was a nice add.

I think it might be a little too soon to up the minimum to .1

make me wrong...

Set up the same thing..

Q: What happens when timer reaches zero?

A: The person who last made a spend will instantly receive the entire jackpot. Then all spends will be cleared and the bubble game will start from scratch.

all spends meaning all un-popped bubbles?  meaning you get nothing back if your bubble doesn't pop, before the timer runs out?

Yes Smiley You only receive profit if your bubble is bursted (or if you win jackpot). You are essentially buying advertising but with a chance of getting your advertising money returned (with profit) or actually winning a lot by being the last spender. It's named "bubble" since well.. all bubbles will eventually pop.

How is top spender calculated?
From btc address to pay, or from btc payment sent from addy, or from individual sale?
It will sum up all the payments made where advertisement has the same receiving address. Then, depending on how much each has spent it will be giving an % chance to have it's advertisement displayed.

Example: Let's say we have 5 payments in the bubble.
1. Receiving address: X9sJA - 10 btc
2. Receiving address: Os8x3 - 10 btc
3. Receiving address: X9sJA - 10 btc
4. Receiving address: IQ91J - 20 btc
5. Receiving address: Os8x3 - 20 btc

Total: 70 btc
X9sJA = 20/70 = 28,57%
Os8x3 = 30/70 = 42,86%
IQ91J = 20/70 = 28,57%

As you can see, all spends will currently be counted, so even if you use different receiving addresses it doesn't really decreases your chances... Smiley
The way it's done now might be changed in the future though, I'm not sure if it will be good for the load when the bubble game grows big enough.

Would like to see how much needs to be spent till the bubble bursts, instead of 1.5x the spend.

Once the lotto is won will the bubbles go in with the bursted bubbles or a separate category.  I would prefer to see them in a separate category.

I don't see a good reason to do this since you can already see the amount needed to burst next bubble in statistics. You can also calculate the amount needed for other bubbles by adding up all fees.
Once the lotto is won will the bubbles go in with the bursted bubbles or a separate category.  I would prefer to see them in a separate category.
Once the bubble game is restarted all bubbles in that round will be removed from "bursted bubbles". It will start completely from scratch and last round will not be visible for users. I will add option to view last rounds jackpot and who won it, and maybe if there is enough demand I will also add the possibility to view bubbles (both bursted and non bursted). Smiley

Because its a lot of adding if its not on the first page, or a lot of subtracting from what is marked as needed to burst all bubbles on the last page.

Hey Kozi, it looks like I won this Cheesy

So does the next round have to be set up manually or is it automated somehow?

Completely automated, but looks like you guys figured it out already seeing that the jackpot is already at 14 BTC Cheesy

Jackpot is also supposed to be paid automatically, but it seems your jackpot money was NOT paid automatically (like it should), it tried to pay this address: "1Krbb2jqDDxvDHSFPPUBhM8S2Hz5M4PXe8"... is this correct?

Yes that's the correct address, and I was also wondering if that was supposed to be automated, because as you know, I haven't received it yet.

Thanks by the way!

One more thing... are the "Top Spender" ads supposed to be reset after each round?

I just saw an ad there for Bitlotto (sorry bitlotto!) but that's not in the current list of bubbles.

Currently no, it's by how much has been spent ALL TIME. I will have to change that eventually though, but for now thats how it is.

PS: I think the bitlotto ad is from operation fabulous, it appears for all bubbles that didn't enter url.

Well the way it is now is fair anyway, I was just curious.

And that reminds me, the first bitlotto draw is almost upon us, hehe.
