I always see these advertisements and signature for "crypto-games" and "crypto-news". Huh, seems to be making its way around the block. Well, good luck!

Hey crypto-games,

I just noticed something in your system what shouldn't be there.
I cashed out 0.04 BTC. You sent it to my address, but the inputs are not even confirmed. That's not how you should handle business. Now I need to wait for your incoming transaction to be confirmed first, before my cash out is confirmed.

Basically it means that I am dependent on other on how much fee they sent, because if they send a low fee, the transaction will take a long time before it is confirmed. My cashout has to wait for that, so I have to wait for other transactions to confirm.

IMO, you should send coins to people who cash out only from confirmed inputs.

I believe sometimes blockchain are having some pending activity that so many of them that not getting their money because of pending. And I think that is not some problem at all, in the end you just got your money on your wallet. About the inputs pending, I believe some big site will face this problem too, like crypto games to not paying you must not be possible. Anyway may I know how much fee that you used to withdraw? Fast or just a normal fee?

I used the adviced fee. That doesn't matter though. The point is that they use unconfirmed inputs in a transaction, which they shouldn't do.

Please send me transaction ID you have this issue with, as we didn't experience this issue before.

EDIT: Have changed one configuration setting and I think it should fix this issue. We will test it out. Thanks for noticing this.

Maybe it is a side effect of the recent bitcoin price and the heavy network at blockchain. As I can see, it is not only happening at crypto-games. Some other site also get similar condition that the wagered amount per day is a bit lower than usual.

Safe Dice has very high wagered.
And in other weeks, its the other way around.
Variance strikes in many faces and aspects.
There already are a lot of ongoing promotions and events, I don't think there's a pressing need to have even more.



In comparison, CG has the highest ETH and the highest LTC wagering this week.

In terms of effective bankroll, Safe Dice has a quite higher expected return.

Anyway, I just invested some BTC on Crypto-Games and I see there's a quite substantial divest fee. Why is there a divest fee if I haven't even had any profits (I have just invested)?

Also how often does my invested amount get updated? Generally in other places it updates in real time.

...

From the Crypto-Games FAQ:
Quote
We charge additional divest fee for short-term investments. This is to prevent abuse. The fees are as shown below:
For investments younger than 7 days, there is a 0.3% divestment fee
For investments younger than 14 days, there is a 0.2% divestment fee
For investments younger than 21 days, there is a 0.1% divestment fee
For investments older than 21 days, there is no divestment fee
Divestment fee is calculated based on the total investment value, not on the profit/losses.

Basically you don´t have to worry about the divestment fee at all if you intend to invest for more than 3 weeks.
In general I think this system is absolutely fair and I actually prefer it to the "dilution fee" at competitor bustadice.

@Lutpin
Are there any plans to remove/add altcoins? Some of the currently used altcoins are barely seeing any betting activity.
Therefore it could potentially be in the interest of Crypto-Games to remove an unpopular altcoin in order to replace
it with a more popular one.

Thank you. I don't really understand the point of charging to divest, but it's fine. I planned to hold those BTC there for some time anyway.

It could be interesting if CLAM were added, which is already basically a cryptocurrency only used for gambling (at Just Dice, the oldest "crowsourced" casino that is still running).

In terms of effective bankroll, Safe Dice has a quite higher expected return.
And quite higher limits, which have proven to be fatal for investors in the past.
Referencing DiceSites as you did, SafeDice currently has a historical Profit/EV ratio of 38%

As an investor, you gotta know what you're looking for. Sites taking risks up to 10% of their bankroll for a single bet?
CG has other standards and mainly focuses on bankroll stability and security.

Stability.

Unlikely, besides JD, clam has neither a usecase nor a reason for existence.



@Lutpin: Are there any plans to remove/add altcoins? Some of the currently used altcoins are barely seeing any betting activity.

One of those coins in question, PPC, was added solely based on user-votes back in 2015.
Replacing it with another "popular" coin might bring similar result eventually.

Don't get me wrong, I do not oppose listing new coins, or removing those that bring more costs than revenue.
But there's a few more things to consider than popularity/wagering volume.

In terms of effective bankroll, Safe Dice has a quite higher expected return.
And quite higher limits, which have proven to be fatal for investors in the past.
Referencing DiceSites as you did, SafeDice currently has a historical Profit/EV ratio of 38%

As an investor, you gotta know what you're looking for. Sites taking risks up to 10% of their bankroll for a single bet?
CG has other standards and mainly focuses on bankroll stability and security.

Letting investors risk 10 times Kelly is really stupid. Fortunately they changed that and now the average is "only" about 5.35 (only old accounts can set a kelly higher than 2). It sucks because as an investor you are diluted if you take a more reasonable risk level (2x Kelly is fine considering most of the wagered volume is in small bets).

About profit/EV, that's quite irrelevant, long term it will be 100%. Even though ideally you'd like players to make infinite small bets, and therefore having steady profits, you can't choose that, and it's good for the casino to let players make big bets. It's good as long as the casino can stand losing those bets (which obviously isn't the case for those investors that are leveraged 10:1). The variable edge feature there is quite interesting, as it lets players make very big bets (in relation to the bankroll) but by charging a very high edge, which makes it still sustainable for the casino.

How is the max payout set at Crypto-Games, is it 1 Kelly?

I appreciate that your threads are very active, that's one of the reasons why I have so far invested more in your casino than in Safe Dice, even though the expected returns seems much higher there.

There's no Kelly criterion involved, the effective bankroll is the one available and every BTC in the bankroll is backed by 1 BTC in the cold wallets.
(I guess you could see that as 1x Kelly factor)

The max bet profit per bet on dice is set based on aged investments (those older than 7 days), and is 0.5% of the stable bankroll (only considering aged investments).
Those limits are lower than on most other sites (compared to their bankroll), but due to the amount of bankroll funds available, they still allow to offer very reasonable maxbet limits,
currently that's 7.88BTC profit per single bet (the max bet is fixed at 10x that number).

The variable edge feature there is quite interesting, as it lets players make very big bets (in relation to the bankroll) but by charging a very high edge, which makes it still sustainable for the casino.
In theory, that's true.
The practical example currently tells another story though.
Variance stays a b*tch.

Taking huge risks that might (are expected to) pay off still involves taking huge risks.
And nobody can guarantee that they pay off.

currently that's 7.88BTC profit per single bet.

I see you really value stability, but you are being a bit too conservative.

Setting max payout to 1 Kelly (the house edge, 0.8%) would be optimal in the case that every bet was trying to get that payout (which would be the case of maximum possible variance for the casino). As in practice most bets "target" small payouts, it's actually optimal to set a max payout bigger than 1 Kelly. Anyway, 1 Kelly would already be something completely safe and could attract more high rollers. So it would mean extra profits with no extra risk (just some more variance if bets against the max payout become a big part of the total wagered amount, which is very unlikely; but even in that case that extra variance would come with bigger expected returns for the casino, so long term it's something positive).

Something I don't understand is why you look at aged investments to calculate the max payout, instead of the current bankroll (unless it's because you can't constantly update the maximum payout for technical reasons). No matter when it has been invested it's still part of the bankroll. If people for some reason start withdrawing, the maximum payout would automatically be adjusted to 1 Kelly, so the casino would always be safe.

I'm sorry, I made a mistake in my earlier post.
I wrote "the max bet" is set at 0.5%, when it should have been "the max profit per bet".
The max bet is fixed at 10x the max profit, allowing eg a 60BTC bet at x1.1 payout as we had it the last month.



I see you really value stability, but you are being a bit too conservative. Anyway, 1 Kelly would already be something completely safe and could attract more high rollers. So it would mean extra profits with no extra risk.
I didn't set that number (it's not my decision to make), and I personally wouldn't mind taking a little higher risk with my (personal) investment.
That being said, we see maybe 1 bet a month that comes close to the maximum limits, higher limits wouldn't net more profit if there are no bets being placed at that size.

Something I don't understand is why you look at aged investments to calculate the max payout, instead of the current bankroll (unless it's because you can't constantly update the maximum payout for technical reasons).
It provides a more stable max bet/max profit, which imo leads to a better user experience.
