If you have been around world 2 ge or world 18 edgeville bank you have probably seen groups of people clumped into one area all shouting something like "Flower game 200k 2 trys/bgs prize - legit" or something similar.

from what i have gathered you have to pick a certain color of flower that you think you will appear when the player hosting the "game" will plant using the mithril seeds. if your color of flower is planted, you win, if not, you lose and pay again for another chance to win the game and the prize.

Have any of you tried the flower game? what are your views on it? are there actually some trustworthy people who will give money to the winner or just scam and teleport?

Most of the people i have seen who do it are trustworthy, but i have only seen players lose tens of millions to it. Whoever is planting the flowers seems to make a decent bit of money doing it legitimately.

This is new since the return of free trade.
I have tried it, and lost. :(

I've never seen a scam with it to date. I have hosted a game as well. 150k for me :D

I'm trusted cuz of that silver thing in front of my name in game. :shades:

the highest rate of any flower is about 16%

so if you are running the game you can offer 4:1 or 5:1 odds and still profit

i played it with one guy (he was operating, i was betting) and i won the first time and scammed me for a 10k bet lmfao

From what I understand, depending on the exact version played, odds range from around 1/9 to 1/6. So potentially if you see people offering, say, a 500k reward for a 100k entry fee it could be legit (or not). The players running the things can still profit on those types of figures.

However, when like the OP saw, someone claims to be offering a BGS as a prize, it's most likely a scam. Maybe I'm misunderstanding and they're saying you'd have to pick correctly two times in a row to win, but otherwise it would be impossible for the running player to make a profit under those terms.

Yeah, I have played it. It's kinda fun and I made 5m in a few hours of hosting it. I paid out when people won as well. Wasn't too often though. :thumbup:

Yeah right....There is no way I would give my money to a random stranger, "trusting" him that if I won he would pay out.

Honestly Jagex should just put a casino type place in game just so people can risk their money without getting scammed.

1/9 chances of guessing the right flower. 0/9 chances of getting your reward in my opinion.

It's not quite 1 in 9 - some of the flowers (particularly white and black) are much rarer than the others.

Exactly.

But some people insist on paying stupid tax, both IRL and in-game.

indeed, i for one do do stuff like that.
but i can not speak for all, but i can say it is only human to be blind to chance.

btw if anyone is intrested.

In a sample of 380 mithril seeds, one tester found these percentage chances for receiving each flower:

Red:14.6% Purple:14.8% Pink/purple/blue:8.7% Orange:17.2% Yellow:14% Red/blue/yellow:13.8% Blue:14.8% Black:0.7% White:0.7%

In a sample of 500 mithril seeds, one tester found these percentage chances of each flower:

Red: 15.6% Purple: 13.6% Pink/purple/blue - 10.2% Orange - 12% Yellow - 18.4% Red/blue/yellow - 15.4% Blue - 14.8% Black - 0.2% White - <0.2%

Another sample consisting of 1000 seeds got the following results:

Red: 15.4% Purple: 14.6% Pink/Purple/Blue: 8.9% Orange: 15.3% Yellow: 16% Red/Blue/Yellow: 14.7% Blue: 14.8% Black:0.2% White:0.1%

So it's basically the same as the oldschool french game in which you had 3 dices and had to roll a 6 to win, which from at first sight might look like even odds, but it's actually around 40% to win.

Basically a casino game. If you do it for high amounts of money, with trusted players, there is no need to scam, as hosting the game itself is ridiculously profitable, granted you offer the "right" odds.

The game is played by stupid people, just as almost all of the casino games.
