I don't think anyone's going to want to play the higher match games. They're cheaper, and that's a nice incentive, but the prize pool is a limiting factor. No one's going to want to pay anything for a one in a million chance to win less than one bitcoin. I don't really know how you could fix that, though, since you'd have to put money in out of your own pocket to get the ball rolling :/
True in a sense... Personally I'm the longshot guy, the one at the horseraces putting $2 on the 60:1 horse. And I've actually hit big with it twice. Makes it exciting for me i guess..
Anyway, yeah I don't expect the Match6 to pay off anytime soon. Just figured that if I do actually start getting a lot of visitors, they might just go for it if it's only .01 btc. Also, just like the megamillions, most people don't play right after a big win, when it's only a mill or two, they wait till it's up there. So yeah, I think it might get a slow trickle, but I think it will eventually start rollin. Maybe I will seed it, I will see. I guess if it gets no bets by draw time, I might just have to do that...
Interesting week... with the way BTC value is exploding, I might just have to make it .001!!
