The Flower Game

Recommended Posts

There is no illegal or illegal to this game as none of it is technically against the rules. It comes down to more or immoral people running an ethical or unethical game.

If you don't pay out it is scamming

Interestingly enough someone was advertising this in edgy bank last night. A pmod was there whinging about it being a scam so I challenged him to mute the guy to prove his point. Wouldn't do it nor did he have an answer for it. I can only conclude that at this point in time it must be legal within the game.

it is okay to play and operate the flower game

 

it is not okay to operate the flower game and then refuse to payout when the other player wins - this is scamming

 

at least that's what i can pick up from rsof

 

oh also you can't advertise it on rsof because it's a trust trade

Anyone offering potential winnings of more than 9 times the bid (because even if each flower had an equal chance of growing there are only 9 types) then it's more than likely to be a scam. This is because over a lengthy period the planter will give out more money than they get back.

 

I think there might even be a bot script available now to scam people out of money. Yesterday there was a person at the grand exchange walking back and forth doing the usual spamming "green:wave:Flowergame 10x 1m gp min bid" over and over auto typing but he wouldnt answer any questions actually directed at him and when I traded with him he accepted the trade windo almost instantly and clicked accept as soon as I put 1m in the window. I cancelled and reported because I thought this was a clear attempt to scam and/or using macros too.

Obviously, more than one rule was broken there by that player ... <_<

Won a 50k for whip from a 138, but they logged :(

 

I wouldn't play the game with a lot of money, I unfortunately don't trust most of the RuneScape population.

Of course they are gonna log with those odds, it was clearly a scam! Say you get a 1 in 7 chance of guessing the colour (this seems to the the figure most people are quoting it works out to for the main flower colours) and you are a planter. In order to afford to give out a whip every 7 bids (1in7) then you need to make the minimum bid 270k in order to break even (on average). Offering 50k bids for a possible whip the planter would need 38 losing bids for each prize payout, at 1 in 7 odds of the bidder getting it right this makes no financial sense. Anyone offering more than 9x the bid is either a scammer or a fool. A 50k bid shouldn't give a prize of more than 450k.

Personally -- considering all the "trust" games being created on the spot -- maybe it's time for Jagex to renovate the Games Room into a Casino ... :unsure:

I would literally kill a man if it meant I could play Poker on Runescape. I swear to God, I would. I'm a right Poker addict...

 

Too bad I'm no good at it! :P

All star ranks in the cc "sullivan" are guaranteed to be trustworthy. World 2, usually west of the cooking guild. Note that there are a couple of players who go there who may even be in the cc who are NOT trustworthy ([player name] is a notable scammer to watch out for who shows up a LOT).

 

Non-star ranks and non-ranks are usually (but NOT always) trustworthy as anyone who is known to scam is kicked from the cc.

 

This cc has existed for about a week now.

 

People in it generally do either x5 or x6. Each person has slightly different rules though so be sure to check with the person who is hosting your games.

If the cost is very low for the reward it is a scam. If only it wasn't...I would have a fury for 600k :-P

Seeing this almost makes me want to come back to playing.

 

It really is hilarious how much human ingenuity is spent taking advantage of others' stupidity.

No, but it has kids playing it. Are they supposed to be learning poker, roulette etc. while playing RS? No, didn't think so.

Don't put poker, unless it's video poker, to the same jar where roulette is. ty.

You could gamble in Pokemon. A revamp of the Burthorpe games rooms is needed. If all stuff goes through escrow in there then there is no excuse if you get scammed by betting outside.
