Frequently Asked Questions

Basics

What is the game called?

We call this game several different things. “Blast Off” is the official name of the game, but Rockets is also acceptable!

How does the game Blast Off work?

It’s a relatively entertaining and straightforward concept. As the rocket soars your multiplier continues to grow faster and faster (due to thrusters and shit.) Players can choose when they decide to take their winnings by clicking the “Cash out” button.

The rocket blows up statistically on launch (1.0x) one every 36 times (1:36). Think of it as a roulette table with a hole for the House rather than a 0. The rocket randomly blows up on every launch at some point. It is up to the player to try to cash out before the rocket explodes! There is no limit on how high the multiplier can go, but there is a limit on the amount of “Clamcoins” won each game.

What is Clamcoin and cryptocurrency in general?

Clamcoin is something the internet calls a “cryptocurrency”. Cryptocurrency is a type of internet money that relies on a central computer program rather than a central bank. Anyone from anywhere can run one of these computer programs.

The difference between cryptocurrency and a central bank is that a central bank can say “We don’t like that” or “We need more information” and freeze your transactions.

Cryptocurrency is just a computer program. The computer program relies on math rather than feeling or human pieces of information. The math with cryptocurrencies we use is “perfect” vs. the banks that aren’t so much. (Central Banks are Government puppets)

How do I get started?

First off you need to create an account with us (https://games.freebitcoins.com/register)

Please be sure to use a unique password for our website. Good security practice in cryptocurrency is a big deal. We strongly recommend using a “Password Manager” if you aren’t already… it’s 2018 after all!

Trezor is a physical cryptocurrency wallet that also manages passwords and will save you a HUGE headache down the road! You can purchase one here: https://shop.trezor.io?a=freebitcoins.com

How do I deposit and play for free?

On the 12th of May 2014 a snapshot was taken of the BTC, LTC, and DOGE blockchains. All addresses containing a non-dust amount of coins at that time were given 4.60545574 CLAMs for free. This was the initial distribution and is how all the CLAMs were created. The intent was to make the distribution as fair as possible, since everyone involved in any of those three coins automatically get free CLAMs.

The specific blocks at which the snapshots were taken:
BTC block 300377 (2014-05-12 12:48:17)
LTC block 565693 (2014-05-12 13:06:31)
DOGE block 218556 (2014-05-12 13:09:17)

You can see if your BTC, LTC, or DOGE address qualify for free at: https://freebitcoins.com/clamchecker/dig/

Can I get free CLAMS to play if I don’t have any qualifying addresses?

After registering you can visit your https://games.freebitcoins.com/account page.
Copy and paste the deposit address into our faucet https://freebitcoins.com/ask/ page and confirm that you are a human.
You will see your balance in roughly one minute!

I want to play bigger games… where can I get more CLAMS than just the faucet?

How do Investments work?

We allow our users an option to “be the house”.
You can invest in the site’s bankroll, and share in the site’s profits (or losses), while helping us offer bigger maximum bets to players.
We charge 10% on profits through gamings.The commission is taken whenever you divest your balance or on every Sunday.
We charge 10% on staking profits. Staking commissions are taken at the moment a new coin is found by our pool.
Commissions are subject to change. We give a 30 day notice by leaving a easily noticeable bold red banner at the top of the page.
Investment in any gaming site is inheriently risky and proper concideration should be made before you do so.

STAKE: we just staked 1.0 CLAM - What is this?

Being a proof-of-stake coin means that just by holding coins the site earns rewards for staking (mining) blocks. Coins mine coins.

All of the rewards earned from staking are added to the site's bankroll for investors to enjoy their mining pool spoils. 10% commission is charged on staking rewards before they are shared out rather than on divesting or at the end of the week.

The rewards earned from staking do not show up in the site's overall profit, or in the site profit percentage but they do show up in each individual investor's profit stat. This allows us to compare the site's profit from players..

What is “Gross Profit”?

Gross profit is your accounts profits without including your accounts losses.

How long do deposits take to be credited?

We credit deposits roughly three minutes after the transaction goes on the blockchain. (3 confirmations are required to be credited)You should refresh your page if your balance doesn’t update after five minutes!

How do I withdraw CLAM?

On your account page, you can transfer CLAM to any CLAM address you want. Most withdrawals process instantly and you will be given the transaction ID immediately.More substantial withdrawals will be shown in your withdrawal page as "PENDING" and will require us to remove sufficient funds from our cold storage manually. Usually, this process will take less than two hours but may take up to 48 hours, depending on the time of day and other circumstances.

Larger withdrawals will be shown in your withdrawal page as "PENDING" and will require us to manually remove sufficient funds from our cold storage. Usually this process will take less than two hours, but may take up to 24 hours, depending on the time of day and other circumstances.

We remove .001 CLAM from any withdrawal amount to cover transaction fees. We charge this amount regardless of the actual mining fees attached to the transaction, which may be more or less than this, depending on the block competition at the time of your withdrawal.

The minimum withdrawal amount is .01 CLAM. Please remember that .001 CLAM fee will be deducted, so if you withdraw the minimum amount, you will only receive 0.009 CLAM.

Can I get a refund?

We do not issue refunds.

Game

What happens if I disconnect from the game?

Upon detecting that you have disconnected we cash you out (assuming the game is still in progress). Regardless of whether your client is connected or not, the auto cash-out feature will work as expected (it happens on the server), and we highly recommend you use it if internet reliability or performance is a concern.

How high can the game go?

There's no real limit on how high the Rocket multiplier can blast off! However, there is the max win per game, and the server will automatically cash out all players still in the game, forcing them to enjoy an early success if this max profit happens.

What is the most I can bet?

There is no “max bet,” but there is a “max win.” This max win is 1.0% of the houses bankroll and changes every game based on winners/losers. Just go to "Play" and check it out yourself. You can see the current max win is on the top right of the Blast Off chart.

Fairness

What are the game odds?

The house margin is scaled between 0 and 1 %, depending on how long you hold.

The numbers are baked into the game, so you never need to worry about it. Our unique formula makes it fair for both highly conservative play (cash out early) and highly aggressive play (hold until you're a millionaire). All games are provably fair.

The exact formula for the houses expected return is:
1 % * (intendedCashOut - roomAmount) * (roomAmount / intendedCashOut)
But to really get a good sense of how this affects you, please use our handy odds calculator.

The other important thing to keep in mind is that every game has a 2.77 % chance of instantly busting. This is an important consideration to make if you are playing in such a way that you never win the bonus.

How is the game bust calculated?

The code that decides the multiplier for each round is here:

Multiplier Code

It basically does three things.

First, it mixes the hash with the clientSeed (decided by the provably fair seeding event) using hmac-sha256

Secondly it gives a 1 in 36 chance of instant busting

Third, it works out what the multiplier would be if there was no house edge.

Fourth, it takes 1% off the multiplier and adds on 0.01x:

So half the time (other than 0x bust) the multiplier will be 1.99x or more.

That means if we bet 1.99x we have a 50% chance of winning (again, ignoring 0x busts), and so the house edge is:

100 - (1.99 * 50) = 100 - 99.5 = 0.5%

The extra 0.01 that gets added on to the multiplier is half of the 1% that was taken off in this case, leaving the house edge at 0.5%. As the multiplier gets bigger, the 1% that is taken off gets bigger, and the 0.01x that gets added on becomes less and less significant, causing the house edge to tend to 1%.

Is the game fair?

Absolutely! And we can prove it: Initial server seed: 2052dc7f71b71364a26862099577a88871981f99c0cbe3b146f7ed87fc365cd2
sha256( btcBlockHash-530900 + clamBlockHash-2108725)

What happens when the server forces people to cash out?

Under some circumstances, the server will force people to cash out. The most common reason is that the game multiplier has gotten so large that we are risking too much of our bankroll (1.0% per launch). Another possible reason is unexpected server problems.

Pointers

A couple quick pointers: the lower the house edge the more variance you will experience which means a longer, more exciting gaming session. Bitcoin Casinos generally offer better odds, less fees and faster deposits and withdrawals than fiat based casinos. Be extremely skeptical of generous reward programs, bonuses (e.g. deposit bonuses), affiliate programs and the likes. The money comes from somewhere: you.

Do you have gambling addiction?

Gaming addiction, also known as compulsive gaming, is a type of impulse-control disorder. Compulsive gamers can’t control the impulse to game, even when they know their gaming is hurting themselves or their loved ones. Gaming is all they can think about and all they want to do, no matter the consequences. Compulsive gamers keep gaming whether they’re up or down, broke or flush, happy or depressed. Even when they know the odds are against them, even when they can’t afford to lose, people with a gaming addiction can’t “stay off the game.”

Gamers can have a problem, however, without being entirely out of control. Problem gaming is any gaming behavior that disrupts your life. If you’re preoccupied with gaming, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gaming despite severe consequences, you have a gaming problem.If you think you have this problem, please visit one of these sites to get assistance:
