I don't think I should disclose that in public. I have checked block explorer though and he got it, but it's not showing up.

I'm really sorry for the problems Sad bitcoind has crashed over the weekend while I was away, as has the watchdog. I've now started it manually and processed all the pending transactions (deposits and withdraws).

Back to normal operation now Smiley

Sounds like you need a watchdog for the watchdog. Cheesy

I don't know what causes the problems, but I've just ssh'ed into my server and *all* processes have been killed (so also the watchdog) Roll Eyes I've restarted everything again, sorry for all the inconveniences!

At least the forum works as a fail-safe watchdog Wink

Hmm, is it because there is no money left that I am losing?  I have sent about a total of 1 BTC in the last week, and, I've won around 5 games in total, always playing at 0.05 bets..

I know insurance is a sucker bet, but it would nice to have it implemented (ups the house advantage)

Things I'd like to know before playing.
Does the dealer hit on Soft 17?
Doubling allowed on any total or 9,10,11 only or 10,11 only?
Shuffle after every hand?


SPLIT!

I won't play blackjack without a split option, it simply favors the house too much without this option.

My final concern.  How can we be sure you haven't altered the odds drastically in the house favor?  Return a value from random.org, 9/10 times let it go through as is, if it's not favorable request another random to favor house.

It would simply take too many hands to determine if many losses are a string of bad luck or deliberate manipulation by the software.

No, there's plenty of money left in the system. And even if there wasn't you'd still be able to win, just withdraws would fail until I add more Bitcoins.

I can assure you that if you've won just 5 out of 20 games it was just bad luck (or missing knowledge of the rules, e.g. hitting on 21 or something like that Wink). If I look at the last 30 played games I see that just after you stopped playing another user won 2 times (with a bet of 0.20BTC).

Insurance will definitely come, as will splitting. If I just had more time... I'm in the process of moving in with my girlfriend (she lives some 100km away, and here that means far more than an one hour drive) but I hope once I'm finished I'll have more time again (well, if she let me Tongue)

Things I'd like to know before playing.

Doubling allowed on any total or 9,10,11 only or 10,11 only?
Shuffle after every hand?

The dealer stays on all 17s.
You can double with any cards in the first round.
No shuffle after every hand. I'll get a random number from random.org that shuffles all cards (consisting of some decks) when the deck is empty. These cards are dealt to all playing users on a first come, first serve basis.

I won't play blackjack without a split option, it simply favors the house too much without this option.
Really? I must admit that I didn't calculate the odds when I made this site. You said that insurance would up the house advantage. Doesn't that compensate for the yet missing split option? Grin

No, seriously. I will implement split "soon". Until then, maybe you can play just with lower bets? This way you wouldn't "lose" to much due to the missing split, but still had the fun of playing.

I also sometimes do some special deals where I put extra money into player's account. Or just drop me a mail if something goes wrong and I'll compensate for your inconveniences.

My final concern.  How can we be sure you haven't altered the odds drastically in the house favor?  Return a value from random.org, 9/10 times let it go through as is, if it's not favorable request another random to favor house.

It would simply take too many hands to determine if many losses are a string of bad luck or deliberate manipulation by the software.

I think you can't. In the end you have to trust me. I would suggest that if you mistrust me you first just play with small bets, and then increase them. In fact many users seem to do that. The first deposits where just some bitcents and are now getting more. But even then you'd have to trust me, since in theory I could tell the software to play honest on small bets, but cheat on higher ones. I can only give you my word that I don't do that!

I've seen that other side provide an md5 checksum to prove they're not cheating. But I'm not sure how I could use that here, given how I shuffle the cards. Any ideas on this? I'd totally implement this feature as I of course know that having prove is better than just believing.

Another idea that comes to my mind right know is to display some public statistics. Display the results of the games? Of course without user names, but with or without bets? Or even making every game public, so you could see if a streak of lost games was caused by bad luck or some non-ideal decisions of the player.

You'd have to shuffle the cards differently. Give each player their own deck. Then you can show a checksum of the deck order when they start playing, and reveal it when they push through enough of the deck to trigger a reshuffle.

You should also publish your deck shuffler code Smiley

Can't tell if trolling or incredibly stupid...

Lol, just kidding.  Yeah, to me it's not worth playing.  I do have to give you credit though in paying 3:2 on blackjack.  Half the tables I sit at are 6:5 or /gasp 1:1

I'm not sure how an md5 checksum would help.  I really don't even understand what they are.  I know you can use them to verify a value, but past that I don't get how it would help.

I guess, like you said, I'd just have to trust you.  I guess the same can be said for a real casino.  But online if you get caught cheating they don't take you in the back room and break your kneecaps.

Alright, then I apologize for my message then, I was very angry at my losses, I suppose this should teach me a lesson in the end. Thanks for your great website!

That was a scary Bitcoin Smiley.. Got down to .3 left, but cashed out back up at 1.43 Smiley

Lol, I won't play more until it's more complete, but I already believe it's fair based on what I saw.

Couple more suggestions:

Auto win on blackjack. (I shouldn't be allowed to hit)
Auto counting

Thanks for your suggestions, I will definitely considering in the new version. Problem is I've already done some work on my PC and I don't what to lose that by doing other changes on the on-line site. So I'll do them locally first and then update everything in one batch.

Since it's a really hooottttt weekend over here I'd like to do a special bonus again. Every deposit you do until end of tomorrow, I will add 10%!

This applies to all deposits done and verified by my site until tomorrow, Sunday, 23:59:59 UTC. I will handle the addition of the 10% manually so it may take until Monday evening. This special bonus is limited to 10 BTC per account, and a total of 100 BTC. I will only add the 10% after manually checking whether the user has actually played games on my side. You need to place bets for at least 10% of your deposit to get the full bonus (e.g. if you deposit 1 BTC, you need to play 1 game for 0.10 BTC or 5 games for 0.02 BTC to get the bonus). To claim your bonus please post here or mail me after depositing.

Have fun Smiley

What does the bolded part mean?  Does it mean that if 10 people sign up and deposit 100 BTC, no one else can get the bonus?

If I understand this right, deposit 100 BTC and bet 10 BTC, you give 10 BTC bonus and all funds are available for the player after that?
