The BIG Lottery
7 Year Anniversary

Round #183



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 Wink)

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 Rolling Eyes)

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 Wink) here's the mighty prize list of the BIG Lottery 7th anniversary round.



  • 1st: 25B ISK
  • 2nd: 10B ISK
  • 3rd: 1 year free EVE time (12*30 day PLEX) (Sponsored by CCP)
  • 4th: EVE Battleship model – of winners choice (Sponsored by CCP)
  • 5th: Faction cruiser pack : Ashimmu, Phantasm, Vigilant and Cynabal (Sponsored by "Ash Tre")
  • 6th: EON “#4-pack” (#19, #18, #17, #16) + ESM (Eve Strategic map) (Sponsored by EON)
  • 7th: EVE : The burning life novel + EVE T-Shirt – of winners choice. (Sponsored by CCP)




Round 183 - The BIG Lottery 7 year anniversary round runs
from Monday, May 3rd, 2010
to Sunday, May 16th, 2010

Round 183 drawing : Monday, May 17th, 2010, 1800 EVE time (GMT) in ingame channel 'BIG Games'.


Important changes for the duration of the 7 year anniversary round
  • Ticket cap : The ticket cap has been raised to 50K tickets (50M ISK) per character (not account)
  • 25% bio link bonus : The usual bio link bonus is not in effect




Also - Please be aware of all the wannabe scammers out there that sets up look-alike characters to try and scam you out of your ISK.
The character to send your ISK to is "BIG Games" and is a member of BIG - and no one else, no matter what they say.


Good Luck all.

A technical note :

My server is atm doing regular reboots.
So if you hit the BIG Lottery site and get some kind of error (or no reply at all), give it a couple of minutes and try again.

The mess I'm in is that I've managed to install an *RC* (Release Candidate) version of windows server 2008.
RC versions expires as it turns out... (I didn't know that before now *sigh*)

And... I don't atm have access to windows server 2008 software Crying or Very sad
Anyone wanting to donate, do let me know Wink

If you have a .edu account or otherwise involved as a student, you can get a membership at acm.org and receive access to their MSDN library. Membership is between $10 and $20 for the year, and you get a ton of software, including Windows 2008, all perfectly legal.

(The only software unavailable is Windows 7, which was removed after people were signing up just to get it. However, the rest of the software is perfectly worth it, and the peer-reviewed monthly journal is a great read.)

Hope this helps. Good luck! =)

Send isk to the character "BIG Games". He has an API tool to download the wallet log and turn isk into tickets in the draw.

Sent 50M earlier today, note that it's for lottery #183 (this one) and not for #182 (which apparently runs until May 2 ugh).

Round 183 - The BIG Lottery 7 year anniversary round runs
from Monday, May 3rd, 2008
to Sunday, May 16th, 2009

2008 / 2009 Shocked ? ... its a bit irritating guess its meant to be 2010 Wink

oh and guys .. the round #183 starts at -> 3rd May (2010) <- .. not today as it is the 2nd May <- today is still round #182 running. so if you send 50m isk you donate 40m isk because 10k tickets / 10m isk is the limit for #182 Twisted Evil

Umm....just checking and not wishing to assume but the above dates are in 2008 to 2009 with the drawing in 2010. I would assume this is a typo??

If so, I'll participate as well. Could you please clarify? Thanks

Good luck to those involved!
