I’m a pretty big fan of Bitcoin and thought it would be awesome to be able to gamble with Bitcoins from your Pebble watch. A lot of people were complaining that the mobile interface of Primedice didn’t allow for automatic betting. Automatic betting involves setting some parameters and having a “bot” place bets for you automatically. For instance, a simple Martingale strategy can be implemented using the following rules:
- Start with a minimum base bet of 2 satoshi.
- If the previous bet was a success, double the current bet.
- If the previous bet was a fail, return to the minimum base bet.
I made an interface that let you set the mentioned parameters and optimized it for the small number of input buttons on the Pebble. The cool thing about betting with Bitcoins is that it’s all based on mathematics. You can choose what percentage odds you’re betting on! If you choose 50% odds, your return will be 49% of what you bet. The lower the odds, the higher the payout.
