  1. Don't know about you guys, but I've always set aside an amount for gambling BEFORE anything else... so whatever happens to the price, I still play based on the Bitcoin value, not USD value. Makes sense for me more so because sportsbookies tend to have their minimums in BTC values, and dice and all that are the same. Be crazy to bet on dollar value with volatility always going to be a factor for Bitcoin.
  2. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency have all been in the headlines for various reasons all related to price. But even if you're not an investor or speculator, there are mulitple reasons why you should seriously consider playing at Bitcoin and crypto casinos, especially if you find that you spend a fair amount of time and/or money on gaming. Bitcoin's underlying technology has made it possible to implement several key characteristics that have made vast improvements to the gambling industry. From a funding perspective, Bitcoin is a more secure, cheaper and faster to transact, making for a more cost-efficient system of cashflow for the casino, while providing a transparent way for players to keep track of deposits and withdrawals. Compare that to more expensive, slower methods of depositing funds such as credit cards. You pay fees, may have to wait for days, and always risk the chance of exposing credit card details while using them online. As an added feature, Bitcoin itself is a pseudonymous form of money - your name and personal details aren't needed to use Bitcoin. Most Bitcoin casinos will never require verification either, unlike fiat-based casinos that will often require you to share private and personal information. If you're a gambler, then you'll also find the lower margins and increased flexibilities of Bitcoin gambling attractive: 1. Cheaper, faster operations means lower overheads, translating to lower margins and lower house edges on Bitcoin casinos. Traditional casinos spend a lot of money on securing fiat-based or credit methods - costs that are passed on to customers via higher fees, and higher house edges. There are many Bitcoin casinos, like Stake.com, where house edges are as low as 1% on most games - compare that to a Vegas casino where the average edge is 3% or higher! 2. Bitcoin casinos typically have very low limits on deposits, withdrawals and even gambling. This suits casual gamers especially, since min wagers can often start at 1 satoshi (0.00000001 BTC), the equivalent of $0.00003! Ever tried a martingale strategy on a fiat casino? Min and max bets at tables typically won't allow you for a martingale with more than 7 or 8 roll streaks. But at Stake.com, a BTC 0.01 bankroll ($36) lets you attempt a 2/1 martingale that can stretch to 19-roll streaks! 3. Ever wondered if casinos were truly fair? Traditional casinos rely on 3rd-party verification of their Random Number Generator (RNG) systems to prove that they're not cheating customers. But what if you could verify for yourself that bets were fair? Bitcoin's cryptographic methods are yet another underrated innovation in Bitcoin gambling, where games are "Provably Fair". At Stake.com, every bet you make can be examined yourself for fairness, ensuring the highest assurance that every bet you placed was settled honestly. Owning your first Bitcoin is as simple as making an online purchase these days, but if you're still hesitant, why not check out Bitcoin casinos and see what they look and feel like? Most give out small amounts for people to try (called faucets). Experience unique games like dice and crash, or choose familiar casino games like Black Jack, Roulette and Baccarat - all at house edges far lower than you've ever seen. At Stake.com forums, active members of the community are often rewarded for their contributions, providing many additional streams of income. What are you waiting for?

  4. My all in record is pretty good. Not that I'm collecting any stats but I remember winning more often than not, that said I don't randomly do that, only when I "calculate" my chances to be pretty good. Got to say though, a high percentage win doesn't mean anything since it just takes a single loss to wipe out all past gains Not the best strategy at all and only probably worthwhile in poker... unless you just have time for one last big bet in a wager competition maybe!
  5. I must have missed out on some important piece of data but doesn't it just show that addresses were consolidated into one new multisig Segwit? I mean, I did the same this year, moving out all my coins from older wallets to fully native Segwit. Just a reconsolidation, not a buy order filled. So, normal? Just detecting a whale I guess is all.
  6. Come to think of it, I've never really started gambling, so never really have a beginning or an end. Gambling is a hobby at best for me, no more so than football or reading - so it's not like I'd leave it or make a decision to call it quits. Of course, I'm assuming I never develop a habit or addiction - but at my ripe old age, I hardly think my feelings or habits would evolve so drastically. Again, as I've pointed out before, my gambling deposits are something like entertainment deposits. If I get them back, great bonus, if I don't money well spent (so I don't all-in, I tend to make my deposits last a long time). Looking back, I do have spurts - but they're tied to football competitions. And how well I do in the beginning tends to dictate how long these spurts last. For example in 2015/16 I opened several new accounts with bookies taking advantage of first bet offers. Made the same bet on all of them (Liverpool) and won all the free bets. Something like 40/50 pounds and they all became several hundreds. Continued betting and as Liverpool reached all the way to the final... my balances reached almost a thousand pounds! They lost the final, and I lost MOST of my bets, but still ended up pocketing a small fortune. The very next season I lost deposits early. Never redeposited. Will I always continue gambling? For as long as dice and football are accessible to me, sure!
  7. There's already a lot of space online for purging, which happens on a daily basis, really For milder purging, check out off-limits or random sections of reddit, even this forum. The chat in Stake is already pretty much handling as much as it can, IMO. I already can't catch up, and leave it off... can't imagine what it'll look like if even 15 minutes of "no rules" are allowed, never mind a single hour of pure chaos! About the series, if you've watched the latest installment, it's all about control. The Purge was less of individual cleansing than it was of controlled apartheid and cleansing by an extremist government (too bad about Marisa Tomei, such a small role and killed off!).

  9. No offence OP, but that strategy only guarantees you long play and hours of fun, with a decent chance of winning, and an equal chance of losing. Mathematics dictate that you can't win every week, or that eventually, over the long term things basically even out - or you end up with a slight loss thanks to house edge. Not saying your strategy is bad, it's a wonderful way to ensure you have loads of fun and enjoy gambling... and if you're lucky you come out on top. There are strategies to limit your negative edge and/or to last longer for wager targets, but there's no sure strategy for winning. That's the hard truth
  10. Same here. I may sometimes go for 1.9 or between 1.9 to 2, but that's generally just when I'm chasing wager requirements and want a slight edge to make my bets last longer, at the cost of slightly slower bankroll growth or even at the cost of losing a small amount once it gets to the higher streaks. It's also pretty idiotic sometimes but I have a really bad habit of making 1.05 or some similar small payout just 1 time on my balance to recover my transaction fees. And then again to recover fees for withdrawal. Has that made me bust? Heh. Yes!
  11. Welcome to the forum and welcome to Stake, erin! I'm actually newish myself, I did join when the casino launched last year but real life and other stuff distracted me I've noticed now a lot of familiar names so you'll find most of the regulars here are regular dicers/gamblers from everywhere in crypto gambling. I have to say this is one of the more interactive ones, thanks to the forum, so you get that added aspect of community. It's also always my more preferred way of interating. God knows my eyes are too slow for the craziness happening in the casino chat! Welcome again, hope to see you in chat some time.
  12. What I'm saying is those loans inside the chat, or yes, informal "loans" for bankrolls, and yes, referring explicitly to those people who loan outside the lending section. I don't know. I've just seen it on all the old sites and it never ends well for anyone, eventually. Most casinos anyway frown on it and have it in their ToS that all loans are at the players' own risk. Some even just ban it outright. Loans brokered through the forum, okay sure. That's normal micro economy in any forum and perfectly fine.
  13. Well, I've seen it on other sites too. People get friendly, they get active, they form friendships, and then they ruin it all by asking for loans or offering. This loaning business should not only be discouraged but not allowed, cause eventually people don't pay back, or worse, they start to bring up tips they did long ago and expect that to count towards loans. Just enjoy the game, and use the faucet or stay active on the forum until you have more to deposit, it's simply never worth borrowing funds. All that pressure's not good for health, mm'kay?
  14. Well, like it's pointed out above, there's a simple formula you can enter into any normal spreadsheet for your own reference to see the bankroll required for base bets, against winning percentage and/or payout. Personally I don't like going for too high bets just to recover small base bets. Instead, I just have a smaller bankroll for say, a more modest losing streak and try to accumulate a fixed % of profit against bankroll, before restarting. Then I keep setting aside that profit and eventually try to build enough to make a separate bankroll, so if I lose that, I've just lost profit.
  15. If you look a few responses above, there's a small sheet with the formula posted by cawetmambu, pretty much self-explanatory at least until a maximum losing streak of 10. So, using OP's strategy, you'd need a bankroll of 0.1968+ BTC just to have a base bet of 300 sats and survive a losing streak of 7. Now I don't know about you guys, but I've definitely seen 7-streak losses many times at that payout/win chance. Not exactly a big fan of bringing >$1,200 to gamble, with just small bets of 2 cents, and potentially losing it all when that 7-streak comes, and oh it will come on autobet within hours if you're playing max speed. I'd just have a small bank roll, keep the strategies and autobets to a min, set a max bet, cash our regularly and wipe the slate clean and try again. Easier said than done of course. I typically end up just bringing something to deposit and considering it lost for entertainment value. Any winnings are a major bonus to be used for my next round of gambling.
