We've updated our Slots game to properly handle the fastest animation speed without spinning forever.  Thanks Dooglus and Stephen!

We also updated the style of the 'on' indicator graphic so that it has a border around it, which should make it more prominently different than the 'off' indicator - thanks Dooglus!

That's much better now; the animation, the lack of freezing, the 'on' indicator (and the 0.25 BTC comp!)

I don't know if it's intentional, but when I spin, my balance doesn't go down for a second or so.  Then if I win it almost immediately goes back up.  I would expect it to go down as soon as I hit spin, not wait for the server to respond first.

Edit: ooh, sparkly!  Smiley

Yup, this was an oversight on our part. We've fixed it now. Thanks for the keen attention to detail!

Nice 5-way win too Smiley

Another oversight, thanks for catching it! We've added the appropriate link now.

I've comped your account with another quarter-BTC to thank you for helping us make bitZino better!

By the way, this has been one of the most successful game launches we've seen yet. It's been less than 24 hours since launch and we've already seen more than 12,000 real-BTC slots wagers placed!

Thanks for the comp, and congratulations on your success!

I found another problem:



I'm typing in the 'bet per line' box.  I typed the zero in "10", and the "current bet" updated to 5.  It should of course be 50.  If I type another zero, it updates to 50, when it should now be 500.  It's always one keystroke behind.  If I delete a zero to change the "bet per line" back to 10 then the "current bet" shows 500.  If I hit backspace one too many times the current bet shows "NaN", when it would be better to show 0 I think.

Edit: oh, and I posted a link on reddit about your slots game: http://www.reddit.com/tb/1a8x4t

This should be really easy to fix! What event have you binded the update function to? You should use keyup.

I'm sure it'll take him less than 5 minutes to fix it - he probably just didn't notice it was an issue, or it only happens on Chromium in Ubuntu or some such...

Thanks for noticing this! I guess I mostly used the up and down arrows to change my bets while testing it, so I never noticed this bad behavior. We've fixed it now, and I've added another quarter BTC bonus to your account. Keep the bug reports coming!

Thanks for the tip! We actually did have our update function bound to keyup, but it looks like getting the value of a textbox from a function bound to keyup sometimes will return the old value of the textbox, rather than the new value. We solved this by wrapping our callback function inside a window.setTimeout, which consistently allows the new textbox values to be accessed.

and thanks for the quarter, and for fixing it.

That's a good idea.  /r/bitcoin has been increasing its membership pretty rapidly in recent weeks.

Sorry for bumping your thread back onto the first page of the gambling forum again - I know you hate the publicity - but I found another little issue:

I had a stray half a uBTC in my account, and wanted to win another half to tidy things up.  I know, kind of OCD, but there you go.

I got the blackjack I needed, and hit 'cash out'.  Then nothing happened, and continued to happen for 10 minutes.  The 'cash out' button is transparent, showing that it has been clicked, but I guess the network connection timed out or something, and there's no script in place to notice that it happened, so it just hangs.



I just tried clicking 'cash out' again, and it worked this time, even though the transparency of the button suggests that it's inactive.

What are some of the software you believe to be rigged so to speak? I would say a lot of the online casinos in sportsbooks are rigged. I mean some claim to offer 100.5% payouts (5dimes on fridays).

I was just rapidly clicking the 1/2 button over and over to reduce my bet back down to 1, when I somehow accidentally selected a bunch of the page.  It looks kind of ugly:



I've seen sites before disable the ability to select text on a page.  Maybe that would be a good idea for most of your games too.  I'd like to be able to select text in textboxes, but not the action buttons, etc.

Edit: I clicked 'bet', and it didn't clear the selection.  It made it worse if anything:

Good catch! You're always helping catch the issues that arise due to network timeout corner cases, thanks! We'll work on making this time-out correctly in the same way as our other buttons.

I do not know of any casinos specifically that are rigged.

Thanks, we got the message and responded, hopefully to your satisfaction Smiley

We do disable some text selection, but it probably makes sense to disable almost everything except for the text that should be selectable. We experimented in the past with making it all un-selectable, but found that bad for some of the text. We'll work to make this better so that your situation doesn't happen again.

Thanks for the bug reports Dooglus! I've added another quarter BTC to your account to thank you for helping out.

I'm glad my crappy satellite internet connection is good for something.  Smiley

I was playing some blackjack when it appeared in my account.  It confused me for a while why my balance was non-zero when I had already brought everything to the table with me.

Thanks for the comp! Smiley

We've pushed an update which should fix the issues you mentioned Dooglus: We added a 30 second timeout to the cash out action, so you'll at least get some indication that your network is having issues. We also made all text on tables unselectable except for your deposit address and your bet amounts.

I also want to give a shoutout to coinad.com. Carlos from coinad emailed us to let us know about a lot of minor spelling and grammar errors that were live on our site, which we are very thankful for!

Using a tablet (or worse, mobile) the touch is sensitive -- and oftentimes instead of registering as a click [Edit: I think "touch" is the Andrid equivalent for click] the Android event is interpreted as a scoll operation [Edit: or a drag operation maybe?].

If there were some extenal device which has a single button, "click" for spinning the slots, that would be a useful device.

Does connecting up a gamepad to a tablet (e.g., Nexus 7) enable the ability for someone to bypass the touch and instead treat the button presses as keystroke entries (specifically, whatever is needed for the Spin operation?)

You can hook up a mouse to Android devices. They even make custom hardware specifically for Android, eg: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Tablet-Mouse-Android-910-002626/dp/B0058SRNZ4. I believe that any bluetooth mouse will work.

Ideally though, external hardware should not be necessary to play our games! We've tested our site on a handful of tablets and phones, and it does seems to work well - but we haven't tested every device. I wonder what device you are using, and do you see the same problem of "clicks registering as scrolls" on other websites as well?
