The BIG Lottery
7 Year Anniversary
Yet another year of The BIG Lottery
has gone past.
To date the BIG
Lottery has had an amazing 40.235 individual characters take a shot at the prizes - Even if over 7 years now, that's an incredible count.
No other event in EVE even comes close to even sniffing at such a number of participants.
Something I'm not afraid to admit to being right darn proud of.
And not only that, we've also sold a staggering 380 billion ISK worth of tickets over the years.
That's simply a crazy amount of ISK - The mind boogles at times.
380 billion ISK is of course also the amount of cash prizes we've paid out over the years, along with various sponsored items (especially at the anniversary rounds), as every single ISK is put right back in the pockets of the players of the BIG
Lottery (The BIG
Lottery is strictly non-profit - unlike most competitors
As usual we celebrate an anniversary in style - BIG
Lottery Style, meaning some heavy duty insane prizes are up for grabs (see below)
This year CCP has been especially generous I must say.
E-ON has also repeated their sponsorship for which I'm thankfull.
It really is an excellent magazine - I'm a subscriber since Issue #1 and can only recommend it.
A private sponsor Ash Tre has also kindly donated.
I've been promoting the BIG
Lottery 7 Anniversary draw the last few drawings to try and attract a few sponsors, which is how Ash Tre got wind of it.
It's however not too late to get in on the blitz of the BIG
Lottery 7 anniversary round if you wish to become known as a sponsor with an appropriate prize.
Simply EVE-mail me and let me know (and no - a 1 trit donation won't quite cut it
I hope everyone else appreciate those sponsorships, without which a BIG
Lottery anniversary round would'nt be quite the same.
And finally (it's an anniversary round, I'm *supposed* to ramble a bit
) here's the mighty prize list of the BIG
Lottery 7th anniversary round.
- 1st: 25B ISK
- 2nd: 10B ISK
