I haven't been to the mines in a very long time. However, it has taken me quite a long time to get much above the 2.5 million I posted back in August. I would keep losing and coming back and losing and coming back. I don't think I finally was able to push past 2.5 million and stay there until about 2 weeks ago. I am getting close to 3 million now--especially after that dream bet.

Of course the Salty Bet poverty gap has widened even more since then. I was #218 with 2.5 million in August. I am #239 with 2.9 million now. That $108k win did bump me up 8 slots though.

It only took me about 3 months and 1,000 bets to make my next million. I haven't really been playing that much lately, but this week has been a good one.

I've started betting a lot larger amounts leading to some pretty big swings in both directions. I was dropped from about $4.3 million to about $3.5 million earlier this month. But I've had a nice little surge the past week or so and here I am halfway to 8 digits.

I hope I can have this kind of luck in Vegas in a couple weeks.

Aww boo!

I had placed this bet:
Master sakura $31,470,236 Team AndToThisDayIStillHateKarin $376,244
$20000 → +$1672864 | 83.6:1

Master sakura had won the first round. The team won the second round, but the third round never started for some reason. It just sat at the end of the second round until Salty's system automatically reset it after a period of time. That's how they deal with game breaking/ending glitches like this. If the match hasn't finished after a few minutes time (longer than should ever be possible for # of rounds X time limit per round), the game just resets and goes on to the next match.

Anyway, maybe Master sakura would have won the third round...or maybe I would have won my highest single payout ever. I guess I'll never know. :(

You're just jealous that I have more Salty Bucks than you ever exaggerated about. :)

I really truly am. I had a lot for the day but I'm sure there has been some salty inflation.

There is definitely a lot of inflation in the top 10. I guess once you have a large bankroll to work with, you can make really big bets to get really big rewards.

I bumped my standard bet up to $50K when I hit the $5M mark. I've been doing some pretty wild fluctuations since then, dropping back as low as < $4.5M and going as high as about $5.6M--sometimes all in the same day.

Riot, Fluffy, Merk...

Go play Waifu Wars and earn some Salty Bucks!

I'd play but, as usual, there is no love for Windows Phone. :(
