bitcoin-casino_bitcoinistOne of our sponsors, has an exciting update as well as evidence to debunk the fact that players were claiming that they were being cheated by the site. It is important that all claims be taken seriously; however, given the evidence provided, it is very clear that the reader that accused for scamming them, was in fact trying to cheat the website. I will explain this in depth as well as provide the evidence in the next paragraph. has also just launched a new affiliate program, a new rakeback program, and a new tournament system to reward players on the site with even more chips.

A large number of players decided to try to cheat the system using proxy servers to make multiple accounts. After making these accounts, the users would then play against themselves and dump chips into one account then try to claim the large amount of chips in a way that was dishonest and against the site’s rules. One reader on our site claimed to have been cheated by stating:



My history.

Recieve 50 cash,win 500 chips-try withdraw-write is required 1000 PPP,ok. Рlay again. Have 2500 PPP-try withdraw-write is required deposit,ok.

I deposit from my blockchaine wallet.After the deposit has been active output window.

On site has information-12h cashout. But 3 days have passed. The XPY written off,but i dont have chips on my wallet.

I wrote in (support) 3 times. Nothing. I see paycoinpoker on twitter is very active,but also do not want to answer as in facebook.

Yesterday I learned that player PhiI_Ivy is paycoinpoker. I ask him in chat room:where i can recieve xpy?

In response, he laughed me-“you deposit only 0.001497 btc,bye!”

I fulfilled all the conditions.I think that he is a thief and a crook. I know nick PhiI_Ivy “

I was given the user’s player history which clearly shows that he was trying to scam, not the other way around. You can view this player’s history here.

The owner of spoke to me about the nature of the attack:

“We caught over 150 players who were going into the system and using proxy servers to cheat the system. Basically they would create 8-20 accounts get the 50chips per account and then chip dump (Violation of the rules) stated on the site that they would be banned if caught. We had to change the terms and conditions for all new players we no deposits on file had to hit 1000 ppps to accept withdraws. Well they would chip dump to a few accounts by the 1,000’s. To be exact 65,000 XPY. A deposit of .0001497 btc = about .05 xpy. That player only played 67 hands of raked ring game poker and won 60 of them. All 60 The players went all in and lost. They went all in when they were already drawing dead. Found out it was the player on a proxy sever playing himself. We are updating our entire system and lowering the free chips from 50 to 25 and putting better measures in place to eliminate this. This has cost us over 6,000 this week alone. It has not been fair on our regular players. We are not “thieves” we are just dealing with scammers trying to steal from us and they are getting mad that we have come up with measures to catch them. We have been addressing each one of their 1,000’s of emails that all start exactly the same: “Where’s my chips?” Its been very frustrating. I wanted to ensure you we are running an honest operation. We are actually losing a decent amount right now everyday trying to grow our business. We are hoping to eliminate these cheaters and get back to business as usual.”
The attack was both sophisticated, and harmful to the legitimate players on Since the attack, has established new safeguards to prevent players from trying to cheat the system and steal from them.
