    Sahil almost had a good point. Casinos arent here to give af about players, normally. You can go to any btc casino, and you might know a couple people in Support, and they might know your name, and you might even know a couple employees or managers. But you dont know every single one of them. And you dont know their birthdays, shift hours and days off. You dont know anything about them, you probably dont want to know anything about them, and you dont hang out in their lame chat box with VIP managers trying to be your friend. At Stake, we all know everyone in Support. We spend our lives together, every day. If there is honestly 1 Support member that knows Bmg that can honestly say she is a beggar, passive or otherwise, that deserved to be muted, I would like to know who you are. Dont sit back and say we have such a great community and then not be able to tell the difference an alt account, passive, annoying, chronic chat rule violator, and standard Bmg venting. And then uphold the 24 hour mute. Id be hurt af too Bmg. Totally undeserved. Im disappointed that no one said, 'its Bmg, wtf are you guys doing?' Because I am all for rules, following rules, and like I saw someone say, 'Just because we are friends, doesnt mean you can break the rules.' That is absolutely right. Did anyone bother to read what she wrote? Please, if that is passive begging, or rule breaking, either start muting everybody, or if/when something like this is called into question, have somebody with their head outside of their 4th point of contact around to make a judgement call. Because if you all agree Bmgs mute was warranted, I guess Ill just sit here and laugh my ass off, stop saying gr, and pray to God there is a chat Nazi present at all times to mute every flippin passive alt chat abuser that shows up and actually, really begs. Ffs.
  3. The minute i was introduced to Bitcoin about 4 years ago, E woke me up and was like, 'I'm gambling online for money." I was like, "ok, Sucker, have fun never getting paid." He said no its btc and its a digital currency you can exchange into USD. I said really? He said yes. I asked if he was sure. He said yes. He quickly explained to me that he had gotten a deposit bonus at vegascasino.io and he was winning, playing roulette. I'm almost awake at this point because I love gambling, and he says pick a number. He was betting 17 and 20, and I had no number preference at that point, so I said 4. He was still new to btc too, and didnt know what he was really betting. It turned out he was betting 75 mbtc per number, when the 4 hit, on my first technical btc bet, E, and I, but E, won 2550 mbtc, 2.5 btc in one spin. (I'm pretty sure thats how much it was, he was betting 50 mbtc or 75 mbtc, pretty sure 75) I really wish this story had a good ending, lol, but it does not. I learned everything you need to know about European roulette that day, and it is still one of my favorite games to play online. When we were in Vegas about a year later, I won 3.2 Btc playing Roulette again, at vegascasino.io. Its a great game. I won over .4 btc from the faucet in one sitting at cg when I was new. Too many big roulette wins to count. So you know, the day I met Btc, the price was $229.00. My number 4 bet win was around $550.00ish. And the win in Vegas, the price was right around $1000.00, it was roughly $3200.00. Good times with Btc, lol.
  4. never take insurance, but if you do, only insure hands like 20, 11, 10. never insure 13 or 16. lol, fk insurance. ... insurance is only offered when the dealer shows an ace. ... you can only split cards that match. always split aces, always split 8s. irl casinos will let you split any 2 cards that make 20. stake only lets you split 20 if it is a matching pair of face cards, like 2 queens, but not a jack and a 10. Huge advantage for the house to allow that. what casino wants their players to have 20, and stand with it? lol, none lol
  5. You know, so many people self refer. I never have, but I get it. Its too easy, and who doesnt want 25% of their losses back. And I get the multi account blah blah blah, but I referred my friend. She set up her account at my house. I do not even want to know how much she has wagered, but its a lot. Support told me that she is not my ref because she signed up with Stake from my IP. I get the conflict and issues that Stake has from the whole IP thing. But at the end of the day, I referred my friend. She plays at Stake. She wagers more than I do, every day. I should receive the affiliate commission from what she wagers. Regardless of if it is possible or suspect that she is just an alt of mine. Because shes not. There probably isnt any way to really fight this. But yes, bmg, you are right. When someone uses your link and makes an account, deposits, and wagers, you/I/we should get the ref comm, no matter what.
  6. I have this theory. I never even considered it until this Betchain nightmare started. I have been trying to pinpoint exactly what the problem with Betchain is, but I think I finally figured it out, Ill try to keep it short. All casinos need the same thing to keep their business open. A bunch of losers. *raises hand*. Or at least patrons. Winners, losers, whales, average Joes and stay at home moms, casinos dont discriminate. If you fall asleep at a slot machine irl, an action that would normally get you kicked out of an establishment, as long as they assume there is a dollar in your pocket, you are fine. And since the only thing keeping casinos open is people with money, why would online casinos be any different?…They arent. But because online casinos cannot see you, the incentive bonus programs and simplified ‘general’ customer relations operating procedure is unfortunately, and rightfully, very different. Terms and Conditions. Just hearing that, or seeing it, ugh, why dont they just call it, ‘Um, Heres Why You Are Fkd’, thats how I feel when they say, ‘Oh, did you read the T&Cs?’ I am all for any business protecting itself. No using the same coupon when its good for 1 extra thing, per person, I get it. While supplies last. Subject to change, or managers decision final. All of the little ‘can not’ or ‘must’ rules businesses make to not have the psycho coupon lady leave the store with $500.00 from clipping coupons. 3 things I love, 1) Free Enterprise, Capitalism, whatever you want to call it, freedom in business, 2) Casinos, and 3) Fairness. Not a socialistic form of fairness. Unadulterated Fair. Ive dealt with unfair people. They are frustrating to deal with and nearly impossible to be around for any length of time. If for no other reason, after awhile, if they are unfair enough, you realize 25 years in prison for 1st degree murder isnt worth it. And if you deal with a particularly unfair person for long enough, this is where you will find yourself. So I love, value, and need fairness and fair people with fair rules in my life. Anything less, is just a chaotic, endless storm of insanity. Totally no good. Most businesses are fair. When they are not, they go out of business, and should. The obvious reason, consumers wont go back to a place that, for whatever reason, is not fair. And any business that operates fairly, people will continue to happily go to the place that did not screw them over. If you look at the rules, of most or any online casino, without too much variance, the rules are the same across the board. These rules are mostly in place to protect the casino, but it also states what rules they must follow. These are to protect the player. Really, these are like the sacred laws businesses abide by, because really, we all know there are ways a business can not treat a patron and expect people to keep coming back. These rules are fair. Fair rules are great. Since casinos, online or irl need players that bring them money and they dont discriminate, why would online casinos only allow 1 player per IP address? Seems stupid to me to not allow people to bring their hard earned money into any establishment simply because they live together, right? But Badger, they have to protect themselves from the crazy coupon lady, or scammers that try to get as many free bonuses as humanly possible so they can take advantage of the casino and the fact that they can not see you and because they have no way of knowing if you are an unemployed opportunist living in his moms basement that really needs a pack of smokes and has no source of income other than no deposit bonus abuse scams, or a husband and wife that happen to have their best friend from college and his new girlfriend living with them for a few months until they close on their new home in Vegas, or whatever scenario imaginable. I know. I know that is why they rules are in place. But when dealing with a fair casino, that knows 4 players are better than 1, when any IP address issue comes along, they have a verification process set of rules they follow and if you can prove you are John and Jane Doughy that have degenerate gambling roommates and you all have to have a gambling account at that site because you love it and want to send your money repeatedly to them, they do not want some stupid, pesky, IP address rule to stand in the way of 4 players instead of 1 . They say send your ID, and a piece of mail with your name and address proving you actually live there, and if your roommates temporarily live there and do not have a piece of mail with their name on it to send to verify they live there, most places are happy with a piece of ID, they verify there are 4 people trying to play from the same IP and they approve the accounts. What I figured out is Terms & Conditions are only fair when the business using them is fair to begin with. This is why I am having issues with Betchain at the moment. I was writing another letter to the management at Betchain, when I wrote this smart ass comment… *To stand against fair, especially being in a huge position of power as the casino, your chosen route to operate will show itself plainly, because you can run any business any way you want, but at the end of the day, everyone will see exactly what decisions you have made in regards to the treatment of your customers. And if all you have to show is manipulating your terms and conditions to wrongfully confiscate a loyal players funds and subsequent account closure, thousands of reports and complaints of the same, or other infractions that are just as bad, and worse, employees that are afraid to take action that they know is fair because they dont want to lose their job, if that is the criminal enterprise you have created with deposits you know you will never pay out wins on and run every day knowingly stealing users money, you will be held accountable, in this life or the next, but first, in this life, because you are acting with zero regard for the rules and laws that nearly everyone, but scammers, the ones you have made t&cs to protect yourself from, but really, those were written to protect you from scamming players. Theres a fucking revelation. Betchain has created their terms and conditions so they can scam their players and have some bullshit, twisted, 'legal', contrived set of rules to hide behind when someone calls them out on their gross business practice... >>>smart ass statement>>> We need terms and conditions to protect ourselves from Betchains lies, cheating, scamming, bullshit rules they made to fuck players at will, knowing that the terms and conditions will stand, because they always have. And because everywhere else uses the same rules for good, no one can see what Betchain is doing for and is bad.* No casino in the fkng world would make a rule that forbids a person from bringing them money. There was a point, where just like every casino online does, when the IP issue came up, Betchain had us send our ID and they approved all of us to play, because the IP issue is only a problem if they are being scammed. And that is and was fair. So when I try to withdraw and my funds, over $3500.00 usd are confiscated and my account is closed, because I violated the Terms and Conditions by having more than 1 account, Betchain can say this, and be right, it is a violation. Askgamblers would not look into my complaint further because I admitted to violating the T&Cs. I tried to explain that Betchain knew and had approved and allowed the violation. They would not hear it, they said they would not investigate further because while they mediate disputes between players and casinos, the rules that the casinos make are the rules that must be followed and if they are violated, the player has no case. Period. They can not decide how much the rules can or were bent to whos favor etc. They can not make judgement calls and as a third party try to enforce or hold the casino accountable to what is fair based on their opinion. Whether it is unmistakably, undeniably obvious what is fair, they cannot make a casino reverse their decision based on their rules, because fair is subject to interpretation, and laws or rules, when broken, with good intent or bad, are knowingly broken by both parties, and the only person that wins, is the person that can show their rules were broken. This clued me in. Betchain knows, they know, that they can change their rules at their discretion, to do what is in the best interest of their casino. They want 4 players more than 1 player, just like every other casino on the face of the earth. And they also know, that after they have approved this violation of their rules, when the person whose account they have just closed goes to a site that is there to resolve disputes and complains, that ‘unbiased’ ‘impartial’ third party, when told openly and honestly, ‘yes, I violated the T&Cs because the casino allowed me to’, the people who are supposed to make everyone accountable to what is fair, taking into consideration any changes to the rules made on the rule making casinos part, wont proceed any further under any circumstance, this is where corruption lies. Mbit casino approved E and I to both have accounts at their site. And when we withdraw, they dont close our accounts and take our money. Why? Because they are fair. And when a site says we closed your account because you violated the T&Cs, and their decision stands, people assume it is with good reason because it usually is, and thats the end of it. Betchain is counting on this. They are hiding behind their scam Terms and Conditions and getting away with it because it looks like they are doing nothing but rightfully protecting themselves, just like any other casino that has rules in place to protect themselves from scammers. Ive said it before, Sofia and Brian, Managers at Betchain, know me and E. We have corresponded via email for 3 years. They know we both have accounts there, they approved us to play after we sent our IDs to their verification department. They know Cassie. She has emailed them on many occasions and also sent her ID. Betchain knows and has known there are 3 of us that, at the time, were all depositing and actively using our accounts. And when my account was closed and my funds confiscated, Betchain still knew all 3 of us, and knew that they had approved and allowed all of us to play there from the same IP address, they knew that because technically we had violated their Terms and Conditions, that no third party would even look at my case, because Betchain knew I would openly say, ‘yes, I broke their rules’, and to askgamblers, it does not even matter if the next statement is ‘because they said it was ok to break their rules.’
  7. Just post wherever you normally post. Thank you Bm n Bmg : )
  8. Thank you P. I told them I have a lot of friends that would riot if they didnt resolve this. I gave them over 2 months. Please let everybody know
  9. Hi Everybody, I am writing this to let you all know, and please tell everyone you know that uses Betchain or gambles online with Btc, that I had .9 Btc wrongfully confiscated and my account disabled by Betchain. Their reason for this action, was I had violated the Terms & Conditions, which I by definition had. But when the multi accounts were brought to the attention of Brian Mason, a manager at Betchain, that Erick and I have spoken with many times, we agreed that all of the accounts but 2 would be closed. Erick and our roommate at the time kept their accounts. When our roommate moved out, he never used his account because he didnt have any Btc without Erick around to buy it from, I asked him if I could use the account to play in, as mine was closed. He said I could. No big deal. I used the account for at least 6 months before I became friends with Rayen, who is the best Customer Support person a company could have, I felt inclined to let her know that I was me, and the account was our friends old account he wasnt using. I explained everything, sent Betchain a copy of my ID, we sent Ericks ID again, and whatever documents they requested. Betchain approved us to use the same IP address. We deposited and played, and everything was fine. But every time we went to withdraw, they would close our accounts. We would contact Support, Sofia, the manager that always managed to get our accounts opened after Betchain closed them, and she also always got our cash out requests processed. It was a pain in the tail, but we love Betchain and because we had had to go thru the inconvenient, you violated the T&C bs, oh wait, we already approved your accounts, sorry about that, nice win, congrats, thanks for playing at Betchain, your accounts have been enabled and your Btc is on its way. This last time, which began in February of this year, I had won 6 Btc at Stake. I had sent all the Btc where I wanted it to go, and while I was depositing to casinos I wanted to play at, I deposited at Betchain. If I had thought for 1 second there was any chance they would not process a cash out request if I happened to win, I would not have deposited anything there. But weve been thru the bs with Sofia enough times, I didnt think they would close my account again, and never thought they would confiscate .9 Btc that I won, after depositing 9 times, 0.05 Btc each deposit, for a total of .45 Btc. When I won, I withdrew .9 Btc. While I was waiting for the payment to be processed, I deposited another 0.05 Btc, so I could play. When I went to log in to my account so I could play the 0.05, a message popped up saying my account was disabled. I went to Support and said, ‘if I thought for 1 second you wouldnt let me withdraw my winnings after depositing .45, I never would have sent my money here.’ I told them that Betchain does this every time I wd, and please, save us all some time and enable my account. They did not. So I emailed Sofia, like always. Sofia proceeded to tell me that she had said not to open any accounts from this IP address. And since an account had been opened, we were in violation of the T&C. Well, in November, I won 3.3 Btc. Actually, I won 1.3 Btc, and I withdrew 1.2. After I tried to cash out, and the wd was not processed, I cancelled my withdrawal and tried to wd again, leaving .1 in the account to play with. I thought it served Betchain right for not immediately processing my request, that I won 2.2 Btc on one spin on one of their slot games. When I tried to wd 3.3 Btc, I was informed that I would not be able to wd more than .5 a week. After threatening to go to the forums if we werent allowed to withdraw the amount in full, they approved the request. Shortly before that incident, our friend Cassie, wanted to play at Betchain. I went to Support, I talked to Terry, I explained that we had a referral that was being set up from our IP address because Cassie, being new to Btc, wanted me to show her how to deposit and bet. She would be opening the account at our house, but would be playing from a different IP address after I helped her figure out the site. They said that was fine. Then Cassie won. They disabled her account for violating the T&C. I found Rayen, I explained that I had let Support know that my friend would be using our IP address and she was opening an account. They asked for her ID which Cassie did not want to send because she thought it was anonymous, but immediately sent her ID. Sofia approved the wd and enabled her account. When I won the 3.3 Btc, if Im not mistaken, when I tried to wd the 3.3, the second wd attempt, my account was closed and Cassies account was also closed. Cassie asked Support numerous times to please enable her account. I went to Support and tried to explain everything again, Cassie sent emails to get the account enabling instructions. That account was never re-opened. After a couple months, Cassie wanted to play at Betchain. I said they wont open your account. I told her she could play in my account, I dont use it all the time, and I trust her , so fine, if they wont let you have your own account, go ahead and use mine. Erick said, why dont you just make her her own account. I briefly explained to Erick about Cassies account being closed, he said just send her a ref link and have her open a new one. So I did. Cassie played in the account a few times. Then I won the 6 Btc at Stake, and started depositing 0.05, over a few hours span. If my account was in violation of the T&C at this point, it is fair to say that everyone would be well aware that was the case, and Betchain could have shut my account down at any given time. And if it truly were in violation, they should have closed our accounts. But they did not. Why? Because we had proven to them that we we not one person trying to abuse their bonuses and site. I would like to add here, they closed Ericks account. In this household, there is only 1 account that receives affiliate commission, Ericks account that he opened when we were new to Btc, 3+ years ago. Erick referred, in the end, my account, and yes, he gets 25% of everything I lose, as does anyone who refers anyone. For about 10 months, none of the games in Ericks account would load. Erick had gone to Support at least 5 times and asked if the games had been disabled, and if there was a problem, could it be fixed so he could deposit and play. It never was resolved, but the acccount was left open, and he continued to receive the ref pay from my losses and a few people we had referred that played occasionally. When I won the .9 Btc, my account was disabled, Ericks affiliate account closed, and Cassies second account she opened. We all deposit. We deposit a lot of Btc. We have been players there for over 3 years, we have played there exclusively for over the past year, despite the gross inconvenience we know might happen if we win and try to wd. On top of being loyal depositing players, Erick and I both loved Sofia and Rayen for always resolving any issues that came up. We werent just at number at Betchain. We know these people, and they know us. Its been over 2 months since Betchain refused my cash out request and disabled my account. I have sent 7 or so emails in essence begging Sofia to open my account and send me my Btc I rightfully won. She says you violated the T&C and I told you not to open any accounts from your IP address. I told her that the terms and conditions are there to protect Betchain from scammers and people that habitually abuse sites bonuses. The only bonuses I get from Betchain, are issued to me from Support when I bust a deposit. Erick and I are not abusing Betchain. The ref pay he gets, that is what Betchain offers to everyone for referring their friends. No abuse there. Cassie deposits and plays. No abuse there. Clearly clearly clearly, we are 3 people, we want to play at Betchain. Betchain has approved our accounts to play from the same IP address every time it has been an issue. And Betchain gladly accepts the deposits from all 3 of our accounts that they have approved or we would not have open accounts to deposit and play in at Betchain to have the chance to win, it is only, and so blatantly obviously only, our accounts are only in violation of the terms and conditions when we try to withdraw. And on top of all of that, I explained to Sofia that I have been a moderator of an online gaming site. I think it is safe to say I am loved and respected by the players and friends I have made over the past 3 years I have been a trusted part of the Bitvest Family. Part of my job is to keep the site from being abused by people that use multiple accounts to take advantage of the system. Everyone in the crypto gaming world knows exactly what a scammer looks like. People that deposit consistently, that have sent ID to prove they are who they say they are, even with several accounts from the same IP address, look nothing like scammers, because they arent. I did not want to have to write this. I wanted my account opened, as it should never have been closed to begin with, I begged Sofia to please give me the Btc I won and open my account, I do not want to have everyone I know make sure Betchain is not around to burn anyone at any time, loyal depositing player or not. This is how Betchain treats loyal players, and loyal players that refer their friends to use their site. I will only post one screenshot, i have at least 100 screenshots, emails, letters, deposit history, proofs, to and from Betchain, but this one screenshot, in my opinion, is so damning, I dont need to post anything else. This picture shows my deposits, the .45 in 9 separate transactions, that were accepted and lost, and then the .9 Btc I have been trying to get from Betchain for months, being discarded by Betchain, and Betchain accepting my deposit that I sent after I requested a cash out for the .9 win. Had they resolved this and opened my account, I could have been irritated or angry they put me thru this bs and wasted my time and all the hassle for them to wrongfully keep my Btc. But I could have been able to say, ‘they screwed up, but they fixed it, cant ask for much more than that'. That did not happen. And now I am here to tell all of you… Betchain is being run in a most unethical manner. A site that I have recommended highly and truly loved, will wrongfully take your money and with their convenient catch 22 bs terms and conditions clause that they use whichever way works best for them at the time, are lying, cheating, scammers that do not deserve to be in business. It is our responsibility, to inform our family and friends that play at Betchain, and all the noobs that come along every day, that Betchain will steal your money if you deposit and they feel like manipulating their rules so you can not withdraw when you win. Please post this on every forum you contribute to, tell everyone you know that this is how Betchain operates, and please for the love of God, do not deposit there. Businesses that choose to do business like that, do not deserve to keep their doors open with our hard earned money, and their paychecks paid by confiscating player wins and closing user accounts. This is the last email i sent this morning, and their reply - Please Enable My Account Nick Mon, 04/08/19 11:58 am Dear Player, Sorry, but your account won't be reopened. Best regards, Betchain Casino Support Team sig sundt Mon, 04/08/19 11:54 am All this will come down to, is a very clear record showing that Betchain is willing to accept my btc when we are in 'violation' of the T&C, but terminates my account because we are in violation of the T&C when I try to withdraw. So, since we all know that is wrong, and since I am me and Erick is E and Cassie is Cassiebee, and Betchain approved all of us to play there from the same IP address prior to my wd attempts, dont you think it is only fair to enable my account and process my withdrawal? Because if Betchain allowed Erick and I to play for any amount of time after it had been brought to everyones attention there were multiple accounts from this IP, it doesnt matter if there was 2,3, or even 100 multi accounts Sofia. If you approve 2 people and then 3 people, Cassie, it doesnt matter how many accounts there are. What are you going to say, we approved 3 players, a violation of our T&C, but not 4? Which you know was Cassies account because Betchain disabled her account when I won 3.3 btc in November. This is what everyone is about to see. Like Ive said, Im willing to overlook this ugly misstep on Betchains part. Isnt the first time Ive had to fight tooth and nail to have a cash out request processed and my account enabled. Betchain needs to do the right thing now, no bonuses were abused, the only bonuses used were the bonuses issued after busting a deposit. Weve been allowed to play after everyone approved our IP use. Nothing has changed, nothing bad happened, no fraud or abuse of anything to Betchain happened. Open my account and process my wd now. Today is the last day before I go to my friends and the forum. I very clearly do not want to damage Betchain, I have begged for resolution to this that shouldnt even be a problem in the first place. You should open my account just because I have not told everyone what Betchain has done to me and my account. And be happy I have given you entirely too much time to fix this. I want my account opened at Betchain 100x more than I want to destroy Betchain in place. I have done nothing wrong Sofia. I am me. I referred my friend to your site so she could deposit and play. You can not close my account after taking a half a btc in deposits only to say I was violating a policy that Betchain had already signed off on as ok. Whether we had 2 accounts or 20 does not matter at the end of the day because the 2 accounts you approved nullified the multi account clause, and no one will see that any differently than it is because that is absolutely true. Please notify me by email when I can use my account. Thank you for you time
  10. .... Its ok to be angry in chat. As long as youre not freaking out excessively. Generally speaking, ppl that thank the bot should be drug out in the street, and, well, that wont happen. Thank gawd, at our house, the thanking of the bot is not allowed. Rule number 1, love that.
  11. Device: MacbookAir Operating System: OSX Browser: Safari Do you notice smoother animations on Stake 1 or Stake 2: Stake 2 Do you notice faster betting speed on Stake 1 or Stake 2: Typically, yes, Stake 2 Are there any particular games you're having issues with on Stake 2: When I type to chat, sometimes the cursor moves into the bet box, and i type in the bet box without noticing and then my bet is changed or reset to 0.00000000. And I miss the chirpy noise that keno made on Stake 1. Are you currently playing on Stake 1 or Stake 2? If Stake 1, why: I play Stake 2. If Im not really playing and just chatting, I chat on Stake 1.

  13. I started smoking when I was 12. I have quit 3 times. The first time, cold turkey, after looking at a bunch of pictures online of dead peoples lungs and hearts, that was insanely effective, quit, done. The second time, cold turkey, basic training. No choice there. And the last time, vaping. Vaping is the greatest option for quitting smoking cigarettes ever. You get the nicotine, the hand to mouth, just like smoking, all without any moodiness, anxiety, or irresistible urges to smoke. I love vaping. I still smoke. And here is why... I dont know if this is just some bs they came up with to keep kids away from picking up a vape habit. Because I know vaping has not been around long enough for any real studies to be conclusively conducted, and I know vaping is just vapor, so how could it be bad, but I also know its the heating element that would be the problem, blahblahblah. My girls saw me vaping, and these 2 have been on me about quitting smoking since the day they learned it was bad for your health, so they want me to quit now, when they saw me vaping, they were like, what are you doing?! They told me that they were told in school, that when you smoke cigarettes, if you quit, your body can, over time, heal itself. But with vaping, your tissues that your body can heal from years of smoking and damage to your body, vaping destroys, permanently, irreparably, completely destroys your body and its capacity to heal itself. Well, it destroys the tissue, so theres nothing for it to repair. Like I said, there hasnt been enough time to get study results that are accurate for long term use. And since they dont have any real proof of vaping being bad or good, they could have easily said it makes holes in your throat you cant fix kids, dont vape, just to scare them away from a potentially dangerous, and mostly unknown, new "drug". So, whatever whatever. For now, I prefer to smoke cigarettes, that when I do quit, my body will get to work repairing itself. Instead of vaping, where when I get off cigarettes, and continue to vape, until a 20 year study of the serious hazard vaping is to your health is shown to prove vaping makes irreparable holes in your throat, and when I quit vaping, my body cant fix itself, and I am fkd. Hope this helps.
  14. I will gladly admit that I am only writing this based on what i heard. Which normally is not the smart way to go about things especially when you are going to a forum to express your feelings. Fortunately for me, facts, figures, and actual payouts are of no consequence to me or what I have to say, as I have not addressed any specifics of who won what, that was not my objective saying something. I could have been told anything in the world about who won what, high rollers, losers, break even, people felt scammed or that they won more than they expected, any possible possibility could have been said, true or not. All I heard from anyone that said anything, was disappointment, and for the reasons they said. If what they said to me was skewed because they were upset that they lost, or even a straight lie, doesnt matter. I know people dont lie about being disappointed. People lie about facts, figures, things that are provable, generally, one way or another. But people dont lie about their feelings when it comes to something like this. No one is going to say, Badger, that was the most incredible Xmas thing ever, when it wasnt. And they wont say, Badger, that was the worst Xmas thing ever, if it wasnt. Anything that was said to me, came from a place where money doesnt matter. Bringing up all of Stakes Rewards and Incentives, Faucets, Rainbots, and Giveaways, that does absolutely nothing. Nobody is upset or hurt at the Rainbot, or mad at Steve for his giveaways, nobody said I only won "x" amount, so it sucked, or Sam won everything, so it sucked. They merely expressed general disappointment, I wanted to throw out my 1.5 cents because I hadnt heard one good or close to good thing about the Christmas games... I think Ive beat that one to death to the f-ing max, ugh. Ooooo, did I manage to spam 0.00005 satoshis out of the forum by spending over an hour on this post. Sweet fuck, if players are going to be straight called out as a spammer on the forum, when the are doing nothing but saying what they want on a platform not only created for people to say anything, but offers a tiny monetary incentive, where you can spend over an hour writing and receive 18 cents for all of your time, but sats are offered to encourage peoples involvement and continued growth of the forum, and to assume that attempted proper articulation is nothing more than a pathetic attempt to get that extra 2 cents out of the forum... I got nuthin to say. Irena, you honestly think the 2-20 cent post range is what prompted this post? Or that anyone posts on the forum, outside of the one line replys, we all know what spam looks like, if you think Shaniqua or I or anyone that posts regularly, with decent enough or better than good content, is here for 14 cents and feels their time is worth nothing more than that, but gives their time contributing to the forum despite the fact it pays pennies, pennies that nobody asked Stake to give, I think I will spend my time somewhere else, making nothing, but not giving my time to somewhere that thinks my contribution is derived spam, lmao, for the sole purpose of making 2 dimes, when we would have done it for free.
  15. I was hoping you would reply. My post wasnt to offer advices as much as it was inform Stake that their Christmas "party" wasnt great, and some players were besmirchful (pretty sure not a real word, not totally sure) of Stake. As non constructive as being critical without offering a specific thought or possible solution, thats what it was. I did throw out, send Btc, that makes everyone happy. But Im aware that isnt necessarily practical or a fair solution, proper. Which reminds me, I have another post to post... Much c? wryy : ) See, I addressed the ungrateful bitch aspect, because I know how it looks... But that isnt my intention, we are all allowed to express disappointment, totally separate from knowing how generous Stake is. No one that I know of has ever said Stake is a bunch of greedy jerks, they need to give us free stuff. I only said that if there is ever a time that we can say free stuff free stuuf, its Christmas day. And when the free stuff comes, and we lose trying to win the challenges that pay a prize that is less than we wagered to win, and the 1.5 btc prize pool goes to high rollers, well, we feel disappointed that we didnt get what we wanted, on the one day we can maybe get it. Thats all Irena. We all know that Stake is far more giving to players than most sites put together. One has nothing to do with the other Irena. We could win a billion btc at Stake and still not like the way something turns out. And the forum is here so anyone can express what they think and how they feel in an objective environment, that good or bad, is an opinion that can be voiced openly. This is the beauty of forums. If it were my gaming establishment, I would want honest feedback from users so I could have a better gaugeof what people like and what will keep them happier, than unhappy.
  16. I love Stake. Everybody knows that. And even when I disagree, disagree strongly, or even dislike Dan, I still love Stake. I did not play any of the Xmas challenge games, I saw the ghost mode off for the what sounded like the entire 25 day. If it was that long or not, I couldnt imagine why you wouldnt just need to post your winning bet ID not in ghost mode, and then do whatever you want, ghost mode or not. So I personally was not disappointed. I heard from other people it sucked, high rollers won, like always, and the average player really got next to nothing, or lost, and as far as anything fun or anything that felt like a Christmas present or anything even fun, what anyone with any expectation of what Stake might do, cuz its Xmas, or hoped Stake would do, cuz Stake does really great bonus things, it was very disappointing. Thats all I was sayin. And c? for Stake Support, *laughs*, Faris, please, c? them to death. And I have been far more busy than usual this month, so I didnt even see what 90% of the games were, but I know Support did a TON of work getting all of the challenges organized, and without knowing how any of it really transpired, Support did a fantastic job pulling it together, like they always do.
  17. Nobody demanded anything. There were a lot of disappointed players. Whether it is right or wrong, people have expectations. But tell me what I have demanded, Id love to know
