Makes me wonder if the 'consultant' they brought in for the doublespend issue has something to do with this.

If they tell you whether you've won or lost before your bet has confirmed, you can attempt to double-spend your losing bets (send the same coins to yourself) and hope that a miner confirms your double-spend, not your losing bet.  There was/is even a bot double-spending people's losing bets for them automatically.

You only need that to work occasionally to overcome the 1.9% house edge.

That would be my guess as to why they're not accepting zero-conf bets any more.

I've asked before how they decide which bets to process immediately and which to delay and was told it's a secret.

How often do you zoom in on your avatar's face? Is it just me or is it getting closer?

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

I'm glad you wrote that. I wasn't sure either, but it had started scaring me a bit. I don't trust kindly old men, they're a bit creepy.

Wow you two, this is the first symptom of paranoia! Better talk to a doc!

Only once.  When I was at 2112 posts, I switched my avatar to Rush's 2112 album cover.  Later, I wanted to switch back, and couldn't remember which one I had used before.

I have a whole bunch of differently zoomed versions, which I went through one at a time on my Sapphire casino account before I got banned for winning too much or being too helpful or something I forget what now.  So I've not zoomed my avatar in probably over a month, but well spotted.  Smiley

Edit: I've zoomed back out, so you can all relax again.

1920 BTC win; max bets on "less than 1" to "less than 64" would win you 6400 BTC ($461,000 at $72). Or just as likely lose you 6524 BTC.

They already have a payment transactionID but it is not known to the network. Is this always the case with big wins? Probably means they prepared the transaction but are reluctant to send it out before double-checking that the bet was legit?

Hmm? SatoshiDICE uses the bet as one of the inputs so they should have no problem with double spends on winning bets. Finding out you lost and THEN doublespending is why they now are basically requiring a confirm.

The winner messaged me, he is very happy. He wrote me a somewhat inspiring email about what he plans to do with the winnings. Congrats to him and his family Smiley

How long does the return on your bet take?

How is that his problem? He is simply offering a service.
