We have released a new CryptoPlay game called "The 8-Ball".

Come try your luck: https://8ball.cryptoplay.net/

This is a beta version, so expect some bugs :)

Suggestions are welcome.

This week we have an additional prize of $50!

All games with at least 1 bet in the period October 26 - November 2 UTC will be combined in a list and a random game will be selected.

The player with most bets in that particular game will win the prize.

In case several players in that game have the same max number of bets, the prize will be shared between them.

This means that even if you place just one bet, but in a game where nobody else bets, you still get a chance to win it.

The prize will be rewarded in a transparent way:

  • we will create a list of all eligible games (at least 1 bet)
  • then pick some future Bitcoin block height
  • wait until there are at least 6 blocks on top of this height
  • use 3 last bytes of block's hash as an integer A
  • the winning game will be determined as A % (games list length)

Good luck!

(CryptoPlay investors with more than 100 shares, myself included, are not eligible for this prize).

The room was made smaller: 17 x 10 squares and payouts changed to x10 for regular win and x50 for jackpot.

This should make it easier to play. The previous room was too hardcore :)

The game will be switched to a new payment API, so do not send deposits to the old addresses.

Once the switch is complete, generate a new address for your account.

I am in the process of switching the API.

The game will be offline for some time.

Argh! I am so unlucky with this game, I can't even demonstrate it to newcomers! :)

I keep losing in most horrible ways :) That's gonna scare everybody off...

Need somebody with luckier hand.

A small jackpot now often becomes an anti-prize :)

For example, I once got 3,200 in a single game!

Prayed that jackpot won't happen :) It would be just 500.

Interesting dynamic...

So the block 381800 was mined.

The hash is 000000000000000004ebb6a44ecfb761d8a9930f520d95310e4414e9790812cf

Last 3 bytes are 08 12 cf = 0x0812cf = 529,103.

The winning game index is 529,103 % 752 = 447 (game number 448).

And our winner is Mediator. No surprise there :) He played 503 games (66.9%).

Congratulations!

Please PM me your bitcoin address to receive the prize.

The exchange rate was changed to be 10 times smaller (you get 10 times more bets for the same amount of money).

The room also made smaller, improving your chances of winning.

Plus this week's additional prize is $25 (November 23 - November 30).
