Moola.com

I'm not sure how many people have heard of this site but I've found it very interesting. Basically you sign up (invite only at the moment) and you start with a free penny. You have a choice to play 3 different games against another person. If you win you double your money, if you lose you start back at 1 penny. If you continue to double your money after 30 wins you get 10 million (obvioulsy that is pretty fucking tough as not only would you have to win 29 games, someone else would too).

I've been playing for about 15 minutes and I'm up to 39c. After you win your first game you don't have to double your money, you can always bet down to 1c.

If you want an invite, just send me a PM with your e-mail and post here. I only have 3 invites.

Also, if you get an invite and sign up you get 3 invites right way so share the wealth with other winampers.


(I'm going to bed, but I'll check my pm's in the morning)

I stayed for the ballbag.

Send me a pm if you want one.

This game is rather suspiciously pyramid schemesque...

[edit]
It makes sense though. It seems to work off the same concept of the viral marketing schemes except instead of ipods or something, it cashes you right out for money. It's also an interesting gimmick how they make sure you watched the ad by asking a question. This is definitly ad-ish material, by rather benign as spam goes.

It's annoying that it's all luck and no skill.

I was on a poker site last night in the play money room, was up to 6000 from 1000 at one point (slipped to 5000 so I quit).
If there was poker there or something similar it could be worthwhile.

thanks to whoever sent me my invite. I now have three to give away. PM or post for them
/edit
I wonder how many people it would take for us to rig the game, only fight each other, and win the 10 million and split it...

Rough estimate, 2^30 or 536,870,912.

Well shit.

You could do it with less, since you get to restart with a cent, it would take a hell of a lot of time and I have a feeling it is against the TOS. I believe they had a line that they did not have to pay you if you were suspected of fradulent play either.

you could do it with even less since theres a booster section and you could earn about 2 dollars by doing the surveyboosters

the hell with actually having to do something for a penny (doesn't everybody throw those away/in the change thing at the mini mart anyway?)

quite a novel idea though.

I agree, it is a very novel idea. If nothing else, it's a very sound buissness model that can almost garuntee you'll be making money since you wil never give out more then you take in. Now bandwith costs might become a strain if the site ever does get too big, but if they are still making so much money off of ads, it should be more then manageable.

I've finally got a strategy in place and have won 28 games and lost 13. I try to only play anonymous users since I think they're either paid employees or AI.
I also bought into one of the advertizers in the booster zone for a 16 dollar bonus. I bet low meaning it'll take me awhile to become a millionaire

Oh yea, I've got 2 invites if anyone else wants to waste time.

I quit playing that one because I feel it's rigged. There were like 3 instances where I had a King, bid lower and lost to an ace.

By my probably incorrect calculations, you have a 0.00000009313 percent chance of winning 30 games in a row. which seems to be about 1 in 10,737,418.

That makes you about 3 times more likely to hit the $200,000 Powerball prize, which has an odd of 1 in 3,563,608.83

actually you dont need too risk all your money nor win 30times in a row to get a 1000000 dollar.
taking the free boosters you need about 22wins in a row to reach the big goal.

Actually, since you can play at any level lower than your maximum, you only need one win in a row. There is no reason that you couldn't play 107,374,182,400 one cent games.

Exactly.
My goal is not to win several in a row but bet lower than the max and slowly crawl to the top, much like me on my ex-girlfriend.

Well, there is a reason you can't play 107,374,182,400 one cent games, and that reason is time. Even if you played two games every second, you'd be playing for 1702.4 years...

22 wins in a row are still odds of 1 in 41,943.04

You'd essentially have to play a block of 22 games 922,747 times to hit upon those odds to win $10M.

i assume chevs tactic is the right one.
getting a booster and crawling up the ladder probably is
less timeconsuming/painfull than starting up from 1penny and playing full risk.

btw: whenever i save up a huge amount off moola cash id like to lose to anyone of you, since i cant be cashed out.
