A lot of people have been making gambling games and it got me thinking.

Sell one time games sendable via email. Maybe you have the game on a site already, just add the option to pay for a game and send the link to someone instead of playing it yourself.

This could be a tool for spreading Bitcoin. I imagine the site partnering with Bitcoin shops so a winner is directed to something fun to buy right away.

Also I've always liked the idea of selling guaranteed winning scratch off cards as presents. A loser is lame and seems like a nothing gift sometimes, but a winner can make a day. Also you can give a lot more than you get credit for that way, if you're into that.

Seems like a fantastic idea... I'd be keen to be involved and help in the design and marketing side of this Smiley

I also am quite good at maths and if you offer a card for 0.1 BTC then offer them the chance to win upto 10 BTC back and have a winner every 1/3 people that choose to play all winning different amounts sounds like a great idea.

Charlie

THE END is coming on the 21st of May - Wait its passt the 21st? WTF?!

I was imagining something like 2 sliders. One for payout and one for chance of winning. So you can do 30% chance at winning 1BTC for .3BTC+fee or 100% chance at winning 50BTC to give grandma a heart attack, but that costs the full 50BTC+fee. Maybe have no fee even and get your money from the shops you'll direct people too. It's probably worth a lot to have recent winners of Bitcoin dropped at your door if you sell ipods for bitcoin. Probably doesn't hurt to make money on both sides though.

I put the idea out there because I'm not going to do it myself, but would like to see it done.

Oh, well my main idea was just email gambling games. The other stuff is all just variations that will maybe work with different models, whatever.

I meant people buy a scratch card for like 0.1 - 0.4 BTC then if they win they get BTC's back Smiley

Yeah, me too. Maybe I should go review what I wrote Smiley

The "card wins for sure" was just a possible option to give if you wanted to guarantee to brighten someone's day.

Yeh we could do this but we'd have to work it all out, as the fact is that we'd need to make profit and have a wallet with starting BTC's Smiley
I would say to offer the top prize of 10 BTC and every 0.5% get it then 9BTC's = 1% etc...
