While I have used this site my question is what sort of security precautions are in place to prevent someone from within somer from using an alt and "winning" the majority of the blinks?

I've been on and seen a couple of different players on different occasions buying 2 slots on each blink and winning 90% of the blinks. and I've seen it more than once or twice. to me it looks suspicious. So maybe you should explain to the community what safety features you have in place to prevent someone from manipulating the games....

otherwise to me this is just one of the largest scams running in EVE

No one except me has access to the code.

Here's the random draw code that we publish so you can see it's just calling random.org:

We profit by running a fair, straight game :)

Heyo Kirell :)

Every now and again, someone sees someone else win a string and this type of post pops up. I'm always happy to address it, though :)

Sometimes, a person (or group of people) wins several in a row because they buy a larger number of tickets to a specific blink. "Buying better odds" essentially.

Sometimes, a person wins several in a row just due to sheer blind luck.

But with over 358,089 prizes given away (not counting the 3,279 free promo giveaways), we'd need a LOOOOTTT of alts to perpetuate a scam on the scale you're suggesting :p

And, as many others have pointed out over the months, every legitimately closed blink nets us a bit of profit. We'd be terminally stupid to rig the system in any way, as it would be the one sure-fire way to kill our business forever.

If you like, you're free to evaluate our method for choosing winners. As Somer linked, the code we use to get the number is here. As you can see, we draw it from random.org. You can find their real-time statistics here and several peer-reviewed papers on the quality of their random-generator here.

Hope that helps :)

PS - Always blink on 2. We rigged 2 to win.

Confirming Andrev and the rest of the Blink team are scammers.

They're here to double, triple or even 10x your ISK!
(just as long as you keep winning those Blinks Wink)

Woot, random.org!

Why flip a real coin when I can use one that says "Go for it!" or "To hell with it!"

what does "Preauthorization reversal" mean? I put 100 mill in yesterday, won 6 mill and today I see I have ONLY the 6 mill and in the stats page it shows that as being the reason for the money being taken out.

Hey there,

You sent the money from a corp account, so it was sent back to you with the note "please xfer from personal account". It will be in your personal wallet.

Somer -

Gotta say I love what is happening with blink. The little changes to the site make it even more friendly. Love seeing the total amout of buyouts waiting, and my winning history.

Also - the Butan Trivia rocks! Hurts my head, but I learn alot about EVE lore while trying to answer them.

Scanner
P.S. - Thanks for the Navy Raven!!!!
