FAQs

EtherCrash is a clone of the extremely popular bitcoin game Bustabit. While the rules and math are exactly the same as the original BustaBit, ethercrash is built to be played with Ethereum. This gives you much lower transaction fees, confirmation times, and the ability to play almost instantly! Also, ethercrash now runs on lower house edge since BaBv2 has been released! ethercrash is licensed by BaB and has been modified to run on Ethereum.

Place a bet. Watch the multiplier increase from 1x upwards! Cash out any time to get your bet multiplied by that multiplier. But be careful because the game can crash at any time, and you'll get nothing!

An Ethos is a millionth of one Ether. If you know Ethereum well, you might already know this unit as a Szabo! An Ethos is the same thing. You can use our chatbot Automod to convert Ethos to USD (and other coins) by typing: ?c 1000 ethos to USD. You are able to deposit and withdraw Ethos at any time by going to your account page.

Send either Ether or Bitcoin to your deposit address on your account page! If you don't have any Ethereum or Bitcoin, You can use our intergrated Alt coin deposits powered by Changelly. And remember, you can withdraw directly to the Ethereum address on your account page!

While 12 confirmations/blocks is considered to be secure on the Ethereum blockchain we will rarely wait 12 confirmations. With that being said, we will never wait more than 12 confirmations to process a deposit and deposits generally show up within 3-5 minutes of your transaction hitting the blockchain.

Please note that if you send from an exchange they often wait a while before actually sending your coins.

On your account page, you can transfer Ethos to any Ethereum address you want automatically. Withdrawals smaller than the balance of our hot wallet are processed instantly and you will be given the transaction ID immediately.

Larger withdrawals will be shown in your withdrawal page as "PENDING" and will require us to manually transfer 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 let you chose the gas price on your withdraw. This will generally cost between .03 USD and .13 USD (slow, fast) but these prices vary depending on Ethereum network activity. SlowLow transactions can take hours to confirm, if you select this option please be prepared to wait.

Withdrawals must be in increments of 1 ethos, with a minimum withdrawal of 10,000 ethos. Transaction fees (gasPrice * amount of gas used) will be deducted from your withdrawal By offering three gas price choices we give you the ability to choose how much you'd like to pay.

If the withdrawal is processed by our hot wallet it will be broadcast in less than a minute. However, the amount of time it takes to show up will depend on a number of different factors. First, let's make sure you've followed the correct withdraw steps:

  1. Navigate to the withdraw page
  2. Press, 'Request Withdraw', make sure you enter a valid withdraw address and that you understand how it works to withdraw to an exchange, web wallet, wardware wallet, shapeshift, changellly, or coinswitch.co .
  3. Within a minute you should see a link to the withdraw transaction show up in the withdraw history. If it says Pending, contact us. On the tx page Please take note of the number of confirmations on the transaction (refresh the page every couple minutes). It shouldn't take long to see the number grow as it's processed and validated by the Ethereum network.

While it's not required to have a deep understanding of how Ethereum transactions works, it's important to understand a couple basic things if you're withdrawing to an address that you don't have full control of. For example, if you tell ethercrash to withdraw your coins to Poloniex or another exchange, It's completely up to them decide how many confirmations are needed before they make the coins available to you. Certain exchange services might not like small fees. If you're unsure, probably best to stick with the higher fee "fast" option on the withdraw page.

Beyond that, at the time of this writing, it's common place to see large delays on deposits being made to exchanges. On average, it takes ethercrash less than 30 seconds to process your withdraw and submit it to the Ethereum network. If you've made a withdraw and are waiting for it to show up, please check the link to the transaction in your withdraw history. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us via chat or our support page.

The bonus is a special prize that is awarded to the last people to cash out before the game crashed. Getting the bonus is critical to skillful playing of EtherCrash, as it is the only way to overcome house odds.

0.5% of each player's stake goes into the bonus pot. So if there are 4 players, betting 400, 300, 200, and 100, there will be 5 ethos in the pot. If the biggest player wins, he gets the whole pot. The site works out the rate he would be getting if he won, ie. 400 ethos bet gives 5 ethos bonus - or 1/40th bonus per ethos bet. It then applies the same rate to whoever actually wins.

So if the 100 ethos player wins, he gets 1/40th of 100, or 1.25 ethos. That leaves 3.75 ethos in the pot, which goes to the next best placing player(s).

Suppose the 200 ethos player comes 2nd. He is due 1/40th of 200, or 2.5 ethos. There are still 3.75 ethos in the pot, so he gets the full 2.5 ethos he is due - the same as if he had come in 1st place.

Suppose the 300 ethos player comes 3rd. He's due 3.75 ethos (300/40) but there is only 1.25 ethos left in the pot, so he gets those and that's all. There's nothing left for the 4th or worse place players.

1% of games will instant bust (0x) and no bonuses will be awarded, all other games have bonuses equal to 0.5% of the amount wagered.
