How can we improve Kickstarter games?

Select the amount to payout

It would be nice to select the amount to be paid out. I'd like to just pay out the original bet amount but keep the extra in my DietBet account. :)

        So wait, does the $600 in payout include your initial bet that you get back? Like I'm going to be taxed on my own money? Yeah, this needs to be fixed ASAP. It really can't be that hard of a change

        I haven't tried to cash out yet, so I didn't realize this was an option. I definitely agree it should be as I'd planned to pull out my original bets and keep playing with the rest! :)

        Great idea! I feel very very uncomfortable giving out my social security number. if I get over $600 in payouts it is required for the 1099. This way I can make sure it is under $600 a year. I take the money I put in out and then just play with the rest.

        The other reason to do this quickly is that if some of the money can stay in DietBet for new games, then DB isn't paying additional credit card transaction fees on the new bets!

        This is really important in my opinion. I'm hopeful this can be implemented shortly.

        For me, I'd like to withdraw my original funds, but then make future withdrawals at round numbers like $50, $100, etc.

        I completely agree. I did not want to cash everything out, but there was no choice. Much appreciated!!
