Wow, quite some feedback here. Many thanks you're really awesome!!
I noticed while playing that when I bet .05 and won with blackjack that I was only awarded .12 instead of .125 ... I didn't check my wallet but it looks like the wallet only uses 2 decimal places. Any way to have the wallet use 3 decimal places for play purposes but only cash out 2 decimal places? Or else let people know they need to bet in even increments to get their full payout.
That's why the minimum bet is 0.02 (but I didn't think of the BlackJack 2.5 win, whoops!). I will soon put a new version online where I do the calculations with 3 decimal places. Then the minimum bet will be just 0.01, and you won't lose half a bitcent. Anyway all the games are recorded so once I put this version up I will recalculate so you get you 0.005 back (or more if this situation happened more often). Thanks for noticing!
Site seems to be down.
I just signed up for a new account and now I get the following error:
SQL ERROR - sorry
Edit: Refreshing the play page is very slow. It takes about 1 minute and then I get either the SQL ERROR page or the play page with a blank bitcoin deposit address.
Again problems with bitcoind
I detect when it crashes and restart it immediately, but unfortunately sometimes it just gets stalled which I cannot detect easily. Thus I restart it every 60 minutes. So for now sometimes this error may occur but it should not last longer than an hour. Sorry for the inconvenience, it's quite a bummer for me that I hope to be able to fix soon
How long does it take for funds to be credited to my account?
I sent a payment to the address it gave me over an hour ago and still nothing in my account!
Look for how many confirmations you have on the transaction. I think it needs at least 5 before funds are deposited.
One confirmation is enough. From time to time I manually accept transactions without confirmation if they are small and seem legit.
Just my two cents - it's great, but no five card charlie. Everything else has worked fine so far though!
Right now this site uses European BlackJack rules where there is not Five Card Charlie rule. I plan to implement other rules as well, though that may take a bit of time.
I have .02 BTC stuck with 0 confirmations for about 6 hrs now on the way. maybe i shouldve sent more
If you send more the transaction is likely to be accepted faster by the bitcoin network (it's a "problem" with the network, not with my site). Anyhow I've manually accepted your transaction even though it's still unconfirmed. I hope that I will eventually really get your coins
@Third War: The system has received your coins, nothing is lost! I'm sorry for the trouble but I've noticed a bug that I must fix. I'm getting the random numbers from random.org, but sometimes the site doesn't respond fast enough.
Not sure if you've fixed this already, but perhaps you could keep a buffer of random data and have some job refill that buffer periodically/when it gets low.
Thanks, that's a good idea and way better than my current approach (use local rand() if random.org doesn't work). I will implement it in the next version. Thanks again!
