Many running lotteries make use of numbers to draw a winning ticket. Some use RL values from lotteries to stock markets and online services for random numbers such as InvisibleCastle.

In similar lines to InvisibleCastle "DICE" is a random number generator with an EVE touch. You will need to use your API key (limited) to verify yourself, and thus participants can be sure that the numbers are generated by the poster of the lottery.

A rolled "dice" is LOCKED upon creation and thus numbers are not shown and cannot be viewed by anyone until the creator of the dice UNLOCKS it (using the password he/she supplied at creation). All steps are timestamped so participants of a lottery can view when the numbers were generated and when they were unlocked.

All previous rolls by that pilot can also be tracked and viewed by anyone. This essentially means that a lottery holder can pre-generate the winning numbers (BUT NOT KNOW THEM) before he/she starts a lottery. And upon the end of the lottery he/she simply unlocks the dice to view the winning numbers. This will prevent a lottery holder from trying to generate a winning number while knowing the "ticket list", and in such a way participants can be certain that the lottery holder has not generated a number for his/her alt (if they are out to scam/trick people), of course this doesn't prevent a holder from trying to change their own TICKET LIST, but winning numbers cannot be manipulated.

The generator also allows a lottery holder to generate a list of winning numbers if there are more than one prize or similar (unique numbers or not).

The random numbers are randomized using general noise to prevent any CPU cycles or the likes from generating linear numbers (see true random numbers for info).

Funny & Interesting! If you made an app for Avatars united, then it would be possible to use across all games.

Chribba, once again you have gone above and beyond in your support of Eve and the community.

Is there a life time achievement award we could give you?

You mean AU api verification or the likes? (not sure what type of api they have tbh, I assisted in the AU app the other way around thus far)

Oh hai. I've been waiting for this post Very Happy

At the moment this is the only truely safe and complete number generating service for Eve-Online pilots and only InvisibleCastle and random.org's 3rd party service (Costs alot of real money) come close to offering this kind of security.

If you are taking part in an event that requires number generation you should be asking why they don't use this service, and then suggest they do - its free and better for their customers and extremely easy to use.

/end Obsequiousness.

Thanks to Chribba for making this tool.
