    Default Daily Dice - Platinum Jackpots...

    ...

    (Standard): You obtain 100 Astral Shards.
    (Standard): You rolled 100 on your Daily Dice and earned a Platinum Jackpot prize!

    Needless to say I was a little disappointed (the pets and tomes were much better rewards) so I figured people could post their Jackpots and see whats out there.

    That's interesting, i'd take the AD over pets any time.

    Then again I'd take 1 string of kobold prayer beads over pets anytime.

    You could buy two or three +3 tomes for 100 astral shards on the ASAH (at current prices) or a pet or two, except you get to choose what which tomes/pets you want.

    No offense but they aren't making money on people using the little free roll, they are making money on people willing to gamble a little...when someone gambles and hits the JACKPOT and its EXTREMELY sub-par...that's kind of an issue...the people that will use this will probably buy shards in the thousands and getting 100 back is....well, need I say more?

    I don't see the problem. At the worst it's another 6 "free" rolls on the gold chest.

    So you'd play $15 slots that have a %1 of paying out $100? Really? I need to open a casino.

    If people only played when their expectancy were positive, there would be no casinos.

    That depends on what I would get the other 99% of the time. If I had a fair chance of getting something else i want then sure. If that was the only "good" prize, then Hell No.

    If I were to buy a lottery-ticket that guaranteed a prize (even if most of them were bad), I wouldn't complain if I got a ticket that gave me another six tickets. And before this thread, I really didn't think others would either.

    *facepalm* Either this is a terrible troll attempt, or else someone really is complaining about getting multiple rerolls for a pull of the slot machine? Either way.... useless.

    Not necessarily. Even in a fair game, there would be at least 2 ways to run a casino. The simple way would be to make money off of concessions and the like.

    But you could even do it off of gambling. You just have to have a much bigger bank roll than the players. Then you can take advantage of the Gambler's Ruin problem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambler%27s_ruin), specifically Christaan Huygens results.

    The only troll is you and the intent of this thread is for people to post their Platinum Jackpot wins...

    Wow what a bad bad bad reward. This is best of the best? I tought you'd get rare items and stuff. Like EE dragon helmets. But spending 15 shards with a 1% chance to win the super jackpot - 100 shards! - lol that's just disappointing.

    Did we really expect any better?

    I did 3 rolls with the 45 shards I had accrued over the last 3 years. I got a lesser slayer pot, greater slayer pot, and green briar twig. Thoroughly unimpressive.

    Especially when you can get a True Heart from the free version.

    100 shards at a cost of 15 shards to play, is not much better then getting 3 cherries on a slot machine to be honest (something that happens all the time when gambling).

    It's certainly not a "jackpot".

    Admitingly most jackpots have far smaller chances of going off then 1/100.

    The numbers are not THAT off though when you factor in the other 99 numbers all give you something as well (many worth more then 15 shards as well).

    I'd have to know the value (in shards) of all the possible numbers...to really determine how much the "jackpot" should be worth.

    At the minimum though it should probably be at least 10x the base cost to play, or 150 shards.

    I agree..I got so much **** just seeing what a 100 would garner I'm not really complaining...it was just kind of a let down to get some cool pets and elixirs and tomes and all these neat little things, just to finally get a 100 and get shards...I bought shards, I don't want more...which is why I posted this thread. I just want to see what other people get (maybe there is something cool out there).

    On the test server, someone got a +4 book from a roll of 100 on the gold dice.

    Yup, gotta love our forums, where everything is complaint worthy, even if it's a free bonous or worse yet... A good return on investment!

    Default Confirmation of spending would be nice.

    I logged on today. Read the message about the free daily roll. Found it and did my free roll. Woohoo rolled a 3. The window was still up so I clicked on Roll again, and was surprised to see it let me roll. I think I rolled a 39 and got some worthless collectable. SO i clicked roll again and it let me go again. I thought either there was some kind of mix up or they were giving people more than one roll because it was new. So I rolled again and again. Then I got the message that I was out of the astral shards. I didn't even know I was spending them. I was lured to the stupid roll by the promise of a free roll and I feel cheated. Almost every clicky here that uses platinum has a confirmation button. You get confirmation on auction buyout, you must click confirmation to reset your action points. You even have to click on the thing you want to buy and a separate purchase button in the tavern. But not that cursed roll button. I really do feel cheated.

    ^^ This is the Daily Free Roll



    See the image of an astral shard, just under the roll button? That "0" changes to "3" after you use your first roll.

    I'm not going to say you, or anyone else was blind. I do thing a tutorial or guide would be a good idea for something that uses any kind of currency.
