Coin Toss

Postby battye » Sat Nov 05, 2005 4:58 am

This is similar to the slot machines, however it is a 50 / 50 chance. You choose either heads or tails, and put some forum money on the result. If you were right, you get twice whatever you risked. Otherwise, you lose it!

I think the coin toss is an easy way to make an infinite amount of cash. You'll never find a casino that allows you to play a game with no max limit on the bets.

Would it be hard to have the page display what your money is/was, to help you know what you want to bet?

Yeah, good point. Maybe I should add something which allows a minimum and maximum bet.

Good idea about displaying the money as well :)

Thanks for the ideas Nes :)

Nes, I did what you suggested and implemented a limit of $10,000. Also, before you make your bet, the current cash balance is displayed, to assist with the decision :)

I thought i was gonna lose more then win, I was even betting the max of $10,000.I tried to bet $100,000 but it told me the limit was $10,000.

I just lost 7.81 or something like that...
I wanna loose all $'s on it.
But since it is a 50 % chance, you will never really lose anything unless you make it a habit to bet it all.
