just signed up to see what the craic is,i would advise,if you are a gambaholic,stay away,all you do is click a button to try win money,obviously the concept is simple,last bidder wins,although everytime someone bids,the deadline gets put back 15 seconds
not very exciting,but you could win sometime if you are lucky
you also collect 'coloritas' which enable you to exchange for bids or cash too,which you win by bidding,another way for casharena to make money quicker
i dont see why it is called a skill game,its only clicking once,and you have to hope that you click your mouse before someone else does lol

I have been reading the site instructions and really is pretty simple to use, you just have to wait your bid to be the last one. And since the number of winnings is limited, you can create a strategy to define the better hour/day to place your bids. I think that, if BRM gave us this bonus, the least we can do is try it out and post our results here. There's a chance of winning $1000. Than, if after winning some nice bucks there, if you still dont think its funny, you can always transfer it to a poker room. But i think that if some of us got the "skill" to win some $ there, it can turn a new way to have some monthly available funds to play poker! Looks nice

Hi Everyone! Thanks for trying out our site! I just want to clear up a few misunderstandings there seem to be…
1) Every time someone bids, the timer goes up. So it isn't "luck" who has the last bid, but whoever battles it out and places the last bid.
2) When the timer reaches 00:00:14 seconds it NEVER GOES HIGHER than 15 seconds. This is when the real battle begins, and a time you should save your bids for.
3) If you earn Coloritas, you can earn cash or bids with our mini games. While there is some "luck" in earning Coloritas, it is based on the spinning Colorita in the auction. So when the wheel spins faster the chances increases that the Colorita will be released.
I know you probably won't believe it since I represent CashArena, but we do have players that come out way ahead. In as they deposit $25 and have withdrew $1800 or more. And these aren't lucky players, they know how the game works, the best time to bid, who to bid (and not bid) against, and use the mini games to their fullest advantage. That is why penny auctions are a skilled game. Also, the reason they are legal in the U.S. is because they are considered a skilled game. Even skilled games (like poker), involve some luck. So yes, some luck is involved, but those who know how to play really come out ahead.
We know it can seem overwhelming the first time people play (remember the first time you played poker?) But we do have a strategy guide for users to read, and if you can even earn more bids (up to 15) for every question you get right at the end of the guide BankRollMob approved this link to it, so I hope it helps improve your game! bit.ly/qaW2bI

The problem with it is the freeze, it takes away a huge edge for those knowing what to do, and looking at the freeze times I'm guessing most of your players are from the UK. I will play at some stage but feel now is a bad time as lots of people will take this offer, also the site is being a little greedy and will lose lots of players and put off depositors who play other sites. 230+ bids on $15 @ .70 a shoot = $237 still with 20+ mins to go, I don't think I need to example the rest, open more to bid on, and as this is a poker community and you know poker players will be there do as some others have done and let us bid on bankrolls for poker sites, I'm sure they will cut you a deal even if not its always 100%+ profit for you guys....Damn I going to start my own, not even regulated, next week of I'm going to see about getting me a auction.
callie28, no association with FTP! And we are legal and even have PayPal as a deposit option.
B1gfoot, actually the reason we have 5 is because we wanted it to be one page, and in order to view the mini games better. AWe don't usually have so many bids on the auction, it is all because of the BankRollMob promo
There is a great third party stat site where you can see some of our past auctions and the results (if you ask support they can send you the link, I can't post it here due to the rules). Today's results are very unusual, so I would agree with arsenej1 to wait a week or two when it has calmed down, you will get more for your bids
don't think this is for me. Spent 10 min watching a timer...not too much exciting going on there. Give a deck of cards. Another thing, when I open the site windows closes all my tabs. Whats up with that? Now I'll have to run two independant browsers....lol.

Im checking it right now. first impressions: quite frankly... booooooooring.... sry if im offending anyone here that actually likes this but i feel like life is being sucked out my eye sockets from over exposure to timers... looking at the concept of it i can see its clearly a nice deal also... for the house. dont expect to get anything out of it even thou i havent made a single bid so far.... will spend it all soon thou and move on to poker.

LOL...has been a long time that i have had tears in my eyes due a single phrase - simple but funny said. i just checked it out and after a minute i came to the conclusion (without to really understand how it works) and here i just quote IslandJack: "As long as people can put money up for grabs and click some buttons, creativity is limitless." its also nothing for me.....guess you have to be addictive to such things like focusing on a timer and clicking a button.

ok finally had a look at the site and now that their rep is here too, i'll post my views. both site and the post here mention -
each bid costs same amount i.e. 1 bid winner is person who had last "registered" bid when timer ran out
Posted by CashArena: But if you are a power bidder, you want to show people you will win no matter what, so you go crazy at first. Then regular players know that you are a power bidder and tend to stay away from you during auctions . So it is similar to a bluff and an investment for the future.
do u really think any1 serious about this gonna stay away from bidding when they see someone bid like crazy? when they know they can win by bidding at last second and all the earlier bids are pointless

can u tell me how do you define skill? do u consider clicking a button skill ? strictly speaking in neurophysiology, walking is a gross motor skill, clicking is fine motor skill
only thing i see you have to do at the site to win is bid when the timer is goin to run out, unfortunately i dont think it is a skill. i think its common sense and apparently some people are lacking it ( bidding 187 $ to win 100 $)
as for the people claiming that players submitting bids and increasing the counter are not real-
though i agree that there is a possibility about that and placing bids to increase the counter is really dumb cos when counter is going to run out they'll have to battle nonetheless. but i think people tend to grossly underestimate stupidity based on their own high IQ. global prevalence of mental retardation is around 3%, obviously they cant access internet themselves. so the ppl doing these dumb things have IQ higher than them IQ of population is near normally distributed, and with MR / very high ones at tails- the ppl doing these dumb things are much more than 3%
i think the game could have been more interesting, these earlier bids more meaningful and the site more profitable for the owners if they had decided to make the person with highest no of bids (when the timer runs out )winner instead of the last bidder. or each subsequent bid costs 1 more than the previous bid but its not my site, whtever works for you ppl
and as for the site timings suck, atleast for me. really dont fancy myself watchin a timer and watch ppl spend more than they gonna earn. no ewallets in withdrawal
anyway i've got the free bids, will try after some time if maybe the action cools down a bit. gl to ev1 tryin to test their clicking "skills" and laggy internet
