Just a head's up. Bitgamelab.com is likely a scam. Here's a thread where someone was ripped off by [Suspicious link removed].com:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=649224.0

So I talked with the Live Chat operator, and told them their login page said [Suspicious link removed].com account holders may login. After talking with them, it magically changed to Bitgamelab.com Cheesy

Caveat Emptor folks Smiley Here's the chat log I had with them:

Code:

Just a follow-up. After I showed this post to the Live Chat operator again, they got very angry and said some nasty things about my mother.

So yeah, bitgamelab.com seems like a scam.

If you want to see the Live Chat operator go instantly nuclear, just share a link to this thread during the chat Cheesy

Try it. It's fun Smiley  He keeps banning me, and I keep connecting back through another proxy.

Note also that there is a legitimate http://bitgamelabs.com (note the additional "s")

The whois for this one is over a year old:
Code:
Domain Name: BITGAMELABS.COM
Registry Domain ID: 1802368427_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.godaddy.com
Update Date: 2014-05-06 22:28:21
Creation Date: 2013-05-19 07:05:21

The one who is likely a thief is less than a month old:
Code:
Domain Name:bitgamelab.com
Registry Domain ID:
Registrar WHOIS Server:whois.paycenter.com.cn
Registrar URL:http://www.xinnet.com
Updated Date:2014-07-04 19:23:18
Creation Date:2014-07-04 19:23:18

Hopefully the guy who is ripping people off can be taken offline soon.

Thanks for warning us about this. It's easy to all for something like this when the domain names are almost identical.

It is a scam. I lost a couple of bucks trying to buy dogecoins. I opened a case with paypal.
Paypal responded:
Unfortunately, we are denying your claim because your purchase was for a
virtual, digital, or intangible item, which is not covered under PayPal
Purchase Protection.  We only cover claims involving physical items that
can be shipped and tracked.

Like it is a rocket science to use Dogecoin blockchain explorer Sad
