BetaChat Commerce (BCOM)

What the fuck is it?

Compete to be at the top! BCOM is a new way to have fun in BetaChat. Everyone can now earn BetaChat Points (BCP). You earn points by playing mini-games in the chat, winning raffles, making virtual bets, and more! Later on down the road, you'll be able to redeem your points for real things. For example, we may have an auction or raffle for some of the Christmas Eve giveaways, and you'll be able to use your BCP to bid or bet. We'll come up with other stuff too at some point that you'll be able to redeem year-round.

Important things to note...

  • You need a username to participate.
  • You need to tell us if you change your username. Preferably beforehand. Your username is used to ensure nobody steals your money and how we make sure it's you. Don't let people steal your shit.
  • All transactions can only be made over Telegram. This includes participating in any event that you would receive BCP from.

Current Ways to Earn/Buy

  • DuckHunt - Type .bang when you see a duck to earn a random amount of BCP!
  • Slots - !s [1-10] - costs $50 BCP per credit. Higher bets increases payout. BCOM remembers your last bet, so to repeat it just type !s.
  • Word Scramble - Solve a scrambled word puzzle before anyone else! Look out for these in the chat.
  • Guess The Word - There's always a secret word. The first person to say it out gets BCP, then a new word is chosen.
  • Raffles - Every once in a while there will be a raffle, where everyone can !join and place a bet. Everyone's bet is put into a pot and a large payout goes to a random winner.
  • Heists - Heists will occur randomly with a special plot and instructions. Follow the instructions for your chance at a large sum!
  • Pickpocket - !p [person] - attempt to steal money from someone. The more money your victim has, the higher the possible payout. Watch out, don't get caught by the cops!
  • Promo Codes - Listen for promo codes on BetaChatFM and TeamSpeak and enter them to receive BCP.
  • Talk in the chat - People will be awarded randomly without advance notice.
  • Lotto - Private message the bot /start to learn how the Lotto works, or read below.

Lotto

Playing is easy. Every night at 10:30, new winning numbers are picked in @betachat and any winners are announced. We have two Lotto games, Pick 5 and Play 4. Play 5 costs $250 BCP and Play 4 costs $100 BCP per ticket, and you're allowed one ticket for each per day. You cannot return your ticket once you purchase it. Our Lotto games are closely modeled after the Take 5 and Win 4 NY Lotto games, so you can learn about how they work here.
