So… How Many Boxes Does Satoshidice Check Off?
They appear to be a simple, yet solid platform.
The only problem that sticks out for me are the complaints posted to Reddit and bitcoin forums following their sale.
Some of the complaints included:
==> Players not receiving their funds after they made a deposit.
==> Players not receiving their winnings.
==> Players getting suckered in with bonuses (that didn’t back out for them).
==> Players having their accounts closed and winnings confiscated because the way they were playing mimicked another account (which, funnily enough, the user failed to mention in his original complaint).
It’s hard to know what to believe. Many complaints aren’t legit, but instead are from mad players that spewed their life savings on a coin flip.
And when you consider that SatoshiDice hasn’t offered promotions (ever, to the best of my knowledge) – and it’s clear that some of these claims are bogus.
The bottom line – I see no reason to believe these claims until more substantial proof surfaces. With that being said you can assume that they’ll pay you your winnings (and not steal it).
If my basic math skills serve me, they check 4/5 boxes. The only things they don’t offer are promotions. But that comes at no surprise since many bitcoin platforms pass on offering promotions on the account that their house edge is so low already.
A 4/5 gives them an 80% or B-. But I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and bump them to a B.
SatoshiDice is a decent platform, I’ll give them that. But since they don’t accept Americans nor do they have any promotions, I recommend your first stop for bitcoin dice be Primedice.
Then you can head to SatoshiDice.
