◎ ◎ The Double Barrelled Lottery ◎ ◎

Step right up and then step right up! Fun new lottery which is twice as nice!

Double first prize! 1 billion ISK x 2!

Double bonus prize! 1 Tempest x 2! (or 80 million ISK x 2)

Double posting prize! 25 million ISK x 2!

First Prize

Why settle for one when you can have fun with twins? Wink You're not seeing double. Well, yes you are! That's right, there are two first prizes of 1,000,000,000 ISK each. Players can buy as many tickets as they like and try to win both, for a grand prize of 2 billion ISK! There will be two dice rolled and two winners, or one lucky winner who gets both numbers!

Bonus Prize

Buy 10 tickets and you'll get a chance to win a Tempest (or 80m) But there isn't just one winner, there are two! So twice the Tempests! Players will be given sequential number in the order they bought 10 tickets (or more) so first player to buy 10 gets "1", next owner of 10 gets "2" and so on. If someone buys 20 (30, 40..) tickets they get extra Bonus ticket numbers for each 10.

For example, Jim is the first player to buy more than 10 tickets and he buys 50 tickets. He gets Bonus numbers 1,2,3,4,5.

Two dice will then be rolled after the main draw which will be 1-(current Bonus number range) and winners notified accordingly.

Posting Prize

Anyone who posts in this thread (once per 24 hours as per CCP rules!) will get entered into the Posting Prize Draw with a chance to win 25 million ISK. What's that you say? You want to make it 100% better? Then make that two chosen posts win 25m each! After the main draw is concluded 2 dice will be rolled similar to above but posting prize number will be given in the order that is posted. If I happen to be the winner, then I'll reroll.

I am a player of over a year with main Gerek Yaztromo in null and a hisec trader. This is my first lottery but I have some ideas for something bigger! I am hoping to develop interest in that idea and get a website up and running if it turns out to be popular. I also have some other game ideas, not your typical lotteries so step right up folks! You've relatively good chances in this one and will be helping towards bigger jackpots down the road Smile

If a Tempest winner prefers, I will pay 80,000,000 ISK instead of the Tempest. This will be contracted to Somer (in exchange for a Tempest) and then I will ask her to pay out the prizes

Thanks guys Very Happy 488 tickets to go! It's 25 million per post btw so for the shot at 50 million, need to post at least twice. Anyone can have a go for that, don't even have to hold tickets. Good luck!

Hey guys, is there just no interest in this? Getting plenty of views but not many ticket sales. It's 1/250 odds to win if you buy two tickets, which seems to be good odds compared to quite a few other similar prize value lotteries. Some feedback from passers by to help get this off the ground - or to cancel it if I'm wasting my time? I want to run a series of other games later but if there's just no interest in lotteries/games anymore I may as well use the ISK to trade Laughing

Bump! Sadly there seems to be very little interest in this and I can't keep the funds available for much longer. I will let this run maybe 4 more days and then refund everyone and close up shop if there still isn't any more interest. Somer has been emailed in advance about the contingency plan.

So with that, last few days remaining to make this a go folks! Smile

Due to lack of interest this lottery is now CLOSED. I will refund all ticket holders by the end of today 08-Sept-2011. This can/will be verified by Somer as she still has my API key.
