As the site’s owners put it, Satoshi36 was created to be a more user-friendly alternative for the other online lottery games online. It is supposed to “bring together a convenient interface designed by a good usability bureau.” It is dubbed as a new generation lottery that allows players to employ mathematical algorithms to verify the fairness of the results. Satoshi36’s makers assert that the game is free from fraud and that they only get 2% of the bets placed by players, nothing more.
Satoshi36 does not require account registration, unless you want to participate in the affiliate program (more on this below). It supports anonymous online gambling. It features an intuitive game that allows you to win BTC prizes without hassles and without having to go through a learning curve. However, it also has some drawbacks, which you will get to know if you read further into our in-depth Satoshi36 review.
Satoshi36 features only 1 game. The goal is to guess the winning number. Although what appears on the game interface is something roulette-like, Satoshi36 is mostly a lottery style game.
To play, you just have to choose any of the “slices” on the circle known as sectors. There are 36 of them. You can choose more than one. Choosing a sector or sectors automatically adjusts the Multiplier and Win Odds shown to the right of the game interface. Then, click the Play button. Doing so will generate a bitcoin wallet address to where you are to send your bet. The bet amount allowed is from 0.01 BTC to 10 BTC.
To emphasize, the bet should only be from 0.01 BTC to 10 BTC. If you send an amount lower than this range, the amount will be stored in the system and not refunded. If you send an amount higher than the range indicated, the amount will be returned to you but with a corresponding deduction for the transfer fee.
The game is periodic, which means that there is a specific duration for every game or round of game. You can’t just choose your preferred sector or sectors, hit play, and see the results after a few seconds. There is a countdown in the circle at the center of the game board. You will have to wait for the countdown to end before the results are revealed.
The prize you will win is equivalent to your bet amount times the multiplier number indicated on the round you are playing.
There is only 1 winning number for every round but you can choose more than 1 number to bet on. However, the more sectors you choose, the lower the multiplier becomes. Hence, the resulting prize gets reduced. You can actually choose all of the 36 sectors, which means that you will have a 100% chance of winning. This, however, would mean that your multiplier goes down to 0.98x, which means that you will lose 2% of your bet. Basically, you win the game but you lose a part of your money.
he game is as simple as that. We did not encounter bugs with it. If you want to randomly choose sectors, you can just click on a sector and quickly drag the mouse pointer around the game board. The sectors will be randomly selected by doing this. This is something we only discovered by playing the game. It’s not really part of the game’s design but it’s a good way to do a random play.
Note: To unselect a sector, you just have to click on it again. If you have already clicked on the Play button, you can no longer unselect sectors. If you want to make changes, what you need to do is to have the page refreshed so you can start fresh with a new game round. However, take note that refreshing a page does not reset the round countdown. The countdown will just continue running. Also, you cannot refresh a game round if you have already placed your bet or if you have already sent bitcoins to the wallet address indicated on the game interface.
Satoshi36 only uses bitcoins (BTC). Deposits and withdrawals are done through wallet to wallet transfers.
Technically, there is no deposit or withdrawal scheme with Satoshi36. This is because when you transfer bitcoins to the bitcoin wallet address indicated on the game interface, what you are doing is the actual betting. You don’t get to send an amount to put up a fund from which you can draw your bets as you play. In every round you play, you need to send bitcoins to the wallet address shown on the game interface.
The game generates a new bitcoin wallet address for every round. The bitcoin addresses are not reused for the succeeding games. As such, there are only two possible history items in the bitcoin addresses generated: the deposit and the possible withdrawal (if the player wins). To view the history of the bitcoin address generated for a specific round, just click on the Info button. You will then be redirected to the Blockchain.info page for the bitcoin address, where you can see the transaction history and Hash 160 code.
Moreover, payouts on Satoshi36 are instant so the term “withdrawal” is no longer applicable. You get your prize sent to the bitcoin wallet you used to place the bet. There’s no need to initiate a withdrawal. There are no bitcoins held in some hot or cold storage so theft is unlikely going to happen. The only problem is if Satoshi36 refuses or delays the payment of the winnings—in such a case, you should be wise enough to decide to stop betting more of your bitcoins on the site.
