The lottery is CLOSED!

This a lottery for a Nyx type supercarrier. For the previous supercarrier lottery go here.

Basic lottery information
You will be purchasing tickets for 10 million ISK each, no limit to the amount of tickets. There are 2,000 tickets, in total returning 20 billion ISK, but I may chose to close the ticket sales at an earlier point if I see the interest decreasing and thus speeding up the end of the lottery and faster annoucing of a winner.

Prize: Nyx supercarrier, fittings and fuel.
Number of tickets in total: Between 1,500 and 2,000 depending on interest (lottery will be closed when reaching 2,000)
Lottery ends on Fri, May 21th, 18:00 or when 2,000 tickets has been sold.

How will a winner be picked and how can we verify the winning number?
As there will be somewhere around 1,500 to 2,000 tickets in total I've chosen to simply put all the pilots into a database, and upon picking winner simply running a select statement ("select pilot from tickets order by newid()" - MSSQL), and the name that comes up is the winner.

While you cannot verify this via external sites and/or media it simply comes down to trust.

Cool, so how do I get tickets?
Buying tickets is simple, each ticket cost 10 million ISK and you can buy as many as you would like. Simply send the amount of ISK for your wanted number of tickets to me - Chribba (ensure that you type it correctly) AND - and this is important! - Add the message MS054 (with a zero) in the reason line of the ISK dialog, the message will enable me to track your ticket and insert it into the drawing database properly.

ISK that is sent NOT having the MS054 (with a zero) message will be seen as a donation to me and will NOT be a part of the lottery. You do not need to send me an EVEmail with the message, only type it with the ISK.

Check your tickets here: Linkage

If you want to buy one ticket, send 10,000,000 ISK to Chribba with the reason MS054 (with a zero)
If you want to buy two tickets, send 20,000,000 ISK to Chribba with the reason MS054 (with a zero)
If you want to buy fifty tickets, send 500,000,000 ISK to Chribba with the reason MS054 (with a zero)

Of course you can send 10 million now and 20 million later, that won't make any difference, in total you will still have bought 3 tickets. So you can either send per ticket or in one sum, as long as they wear the correct message, the number of tickets will be correct.

Tickets will only be counted in the steps of 10, for example sending 12 million ISK will still only be counted as one ticket, and 2 million ISK will be treated as a donation. Sending 9,999,999.99 ISK will give you ZERO tickets as it will be rounded down.

Tickets cost 10 million each.
ISK needs to be sent to Chribba with the reason MS054 (with a zero) - in ISK dialog, not EVEmail.

A confirmation is available here, so you can see how many tickets you have purchased and that your name is in the database. The data is imported on regular intervals via the API so it may take a few hours for it to show up.

You can also join the mailing list 'MS Lottery' for in-game information and updates of current and future lotteries.

Good luck everyone!

Maybe i got better luck this time? =)

Edit: There is no harm in writing something else than "MS054" in the info box? I hope not, didn't see what to write before after i sent the isk.

The lottery is now closed. The winner will be drawn as soon as the import has gone through (might take a short bit since it ran just recently).
