Same sort of format as Swoopo, and you're right, it can work out as an expensive waste of time.

It makes me wonder if it should be deemed as a form of gambling.

"It makes me wonder if it should be deemed as a form of gambling."

if it should be deemed a form of madness.

Each bid costs £1:50. That's the key fact. If you bid 100 times you pay £150. It doesn't take long to spend a lot of money and win nothing.
