This use to be the best bitcoin gambling site, now just turned into a scam. I a not playing here anymore. I am sorry for the people that invested in the bankroll, I don't think they will be able to recover their investments.

I like to point out exit scams as much as the next guy but I think these guys are in it for scamming people. Someone seems to jump in every now and then to clean up the mess.

I'm new to the game but it was lots of fun (with small profit) and so is the gambling section of this forum. The withdrawal took a couple of hours to confirm, though.

We just realised that several investors thought they had lost their balance because when they invested, the balance no longer showed in the top of the page. I'd like to point out that investment is now called "Bankroll bet" in order to distinguish it from any kind of actual investment in the site as a whole.

Any funds you put in the bankroll is also displayed in the top right corner at all times!

All good now, but what's up with the bets taking about 1 second to place?

As the total number of bets and users keep increasing, new previously non-existing bottlenecks appear in the system. we're at 300,000,000+ bets and 500,000+ accounts now. We'll definitely sort it out so that bets become instant again.

Welcome to Satoshi Dice, the first Bitcoin Dice gambling site that has now evolved into a full Bitcoin casino.

I see you are now marketing yourselves as a full Bitcoin casino. Would you (or anyone else that reads this) be interested in buing the crypto.casino domain name?

With the increasing number of users, bets have become slower and were reaching 1-2 seconds recently. I have just made a small optimization that brings down the bet processing time to ~0.6 seconds. Further optimisations will be done as soon as possible!

Thanks, I see bet times are now around half a second if not less.

The last 20 minutes or so it was not possible to login to the site. This issue has been fixed and the site is working properly again.

Bet speed is also down to the previous ~200 ms so bets are pretty fast again!

Honestly why do people play/invest here...

Investors:
They consistently are one of the lower volume casinos out there that accept public funds (stats according to https://dicesites.com/satoshidice), and they have a giant bankroll. What this means is you are getting a tiny return.

I'll explain it this way:

They average under 100 BTC per day in wagered volume, yet they have a whopping 4000+ BTC bankroll. Lets do some quick math: 100BTC (daily wagered) * 1.9% (house edge) = 1.9 BTC expected return. Say you have 1 BTC invested, that means your expected return is 0.0475% daily... And that doesn't even include fees!

They average well under 100,000 bets per day. This means they don't have many players. Most of their competitors are in the millions daily (# of bets). This signifies an over reliance on key larger players.

Players:
Terrible customer support, slow bets, and slow withdrawals. Yikes. And 1.9% House edge? That's nearly double the industry standard!

Over the past 2 months my average return (daily) is about .1% which is pretty good.

I had to wait 15(!) seconds(!) for my withdrawal. I would not say yikes. And I could place 3-4 bets per second which I guess could be faster but please...

The only slow thing right now is the promised signature campaign. Are you guys still going to have it?

Honestly it seems like the site is just fine for now. Haters will be haters. If you don't want to play here, don't play here.

A friend nagged me into creating an account on Bitcointalk just to respond here. My investment has grown over 350+ BTC 'nuff said. Numbers of bets is not that important, what matters is there are big players and despite technical problems in the past, the site is trustworthy enough to keep some funds.

FUNDB, the stats on dicesites.com excludes the slot game that has higher EV and if included it increases the number of bets and amount wagered quite a bit. Investors get a better deal than you can see in 3rd party statistics because of this.

I don't see the game where you used to be able to play by seding directly to a collection of bitcoin addresses... What's up with that?

If this is what the fuzz is about, I don't think it's a big deal. Especially since it's faster than many big sites out there.
