You are seeing this message likely because you are viewing etheroll on a mobile device. Please try visiting us again on a desktop computer, running an Ethereum node that is synced to the latest block.
Take a chance! You are betting on the result of either a high or a low 100 sided dice roll. The result of the dice roll is either within a low roll range (1-50) or a high roll range (51-100). If the number you submit is within the result range (high or low); you are paid 1.99 to 1 instantly. If the number you submit is outside the result range you are not paid. Each roll takes at least 1.5mins to complete.
Currently each result is decided @ 1.5mins. With the Serenity release of Ethereum towards the end of this year and with block times being 1 second, results will be decided on top of the blockchain much faster @ ~5 seconds, allowing us to handle up to 220,000 bets per day.
etheroll is based on an Ethereum smart contract. It is executed by the Ethereum network, which enables it to operate in a decentralized fashion and provide a transparent, provably fair gambling service.
When you place your bet with the contract, the contract waits for a few blocks, allowing other players to continue placing bets, much like a roulette wheel.
When this time period is up, bets are no longer accepted, at which time we make a call to random.org via oraclize.it to provide a random number.
Our random number is the only external dependency (via Random.org and Oraclize, read more under 'provably fair') as the nature of blockchains make it unsafe for us (not you) to calculate random data inside the blockchain in a secure way.
Once the smart contract receives a new random number from random.org, the results are calculated and winning bets are paid out accordingly.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
During our alpha release phase, each betting round will only accept a maximum of 25 players per round. This is only a temporary measure, to primarily keep gas costs down for our users as we continue to optimize etheroll.
If you are the 26th better of a round, you will be quietly refunded and your play will be voided for that round.
Each round takes up to 1 or 2 minutes maximum, so be patient as each dice roll is in progress. You may close your browser window after you have made your bet, your bet will be processed as a win or a loss as per normal.
Currently each result is decided @ 1.5mins. With the Serenity release of Ethereum towards the end of this year, results will be decided on top of the blockchain much faster @ ~5 seconds.
Be aware that when you are in a betting round, you will incur a tiny gas charge to place the bet whether you win or lose. etheroll does not receive the gas you spend. Gas is used to maintain the Ethereum blockchain.
If you would like to place bets, start Geth with the following command::
geth --testnet --rpc --rpccorsdomain="http://etheroll.com" --unlock="your_wallet_address"
If you would prefer just to watch some games without unlocking your account, start Geth with the following command:
geth --testnet --rpc --rpccorsdomain="http://etheroll.com"
However you will not be able to participate in the game until you unlock your account.
If you have security concerns over unlocking your account, it might also be best to unlock an account with minimal funds.
Once you have done this you can reload our website and you should see your wallet balance in the top right hand corner. Good luck!
First, you need to add the contract to your watchlist. Go to your Contracts tab and then Watch contract (not deploy contract): Give the name "etheroll", use 0x.... (TBC) as address and add this code as the Json Interface:
//work in progress
Tip: if you are on the test net, use the address 0x.... (TBC) instead
Under 'custom contracts' in Ethereum wallet, click the contract called etheroll that you just added and then choose a function call under the 'Write to contract' title. There will be multiple functions, choose the one named placeBet, that only has two fields; 'Your lucky number guess' and the standard value field (this is your best size).
Select a number between 1-100 for 'Your lucky number guess', and in the Send field, set your wager in units of Ether (minimum bet size is currently 0.1 and the maximum bet is currently ).
After that, just press execute, you will be prompted to enter your password to submit the bet, once submitted, your bet will be scheduled.
NOTE: When using Ethereum Wallet to interact with the contract, you are only able to place a bet when the 'Stage' field under 'Read from contract' is not in stage 2. If you send a bet during stage 2, your bet will be refunded and you will be excluded from that betting round.
As an alternative to the steps outlined in the instructions above, you can always manually invoke the smart contract (removing the need to interact with the website and ensuring you can always make a bet, even if this website goes down) by calling the following transaction from your favorite Ethereum client.
When interacting with the smart contract manually, you will receive no feedback visually as to the result of your bet. You will need to check your balances with a blockchain explorer to confirm if you have won or lost a bet.
Some blockchain explorers do not display internal transactions, so it is best to just keep an eye on your balance so you know when you win a round when using the manual invocation of the smart contract.
//work in progress
Stats are compiled for you during each session that you are actively connected to the Ethereum blockchain. 'In progress' displays wagers for the current round. 'Decided' displays results for wagers in previous rounds.

Oraclize provides players with TLSNotary proof that the data Random.org returns to etheroll has not been manipulated or changed in anyway since etheroll initially requested the random number from Random.org. We continue to strengthen our relationship with Oraclize.it in order to provide the most secure way of generating our random number.
The randomness etheroll requests is an integer between 1-100 that is served to etheroll by Random.org. The data it generates is a random number from atmospheric noise between 1-100 (try it for yourself).
We could generate each random number from the actual Blockchain itself, but due to the characteristics of the blockchain this could create a security concern (only to the house, not to players) due to the fact that a miner could potentially have a 2nd chance at 50/50 odds by withholding any block that would not return them a favorable result . It is for this reason alone that we chose to utilize a 3rd party to feed us our random number. If for any reason the Random.org service errors out and returns 0, all bets for that round are quietly refunded and voided for that betting round by the smart contract.
The smart contract also contains an 'emergency' function that only etheroll can call, so refunds for bets can be issued at any time should there ever be a problem with this external dependency.
