I'm starting a lotto. Tickets will be 1 geo, the pot starts at 20 geo's. Anyone interested please send me a PM with your number and 1 geo, Please provide your information in the private message (thats how im gonna keep track of your wagers) The number you pick can be any number between 1 and 42. The winning number will be determined wednesday and saturday nights at 11pm EST. I will be using the power ball number of the powerball drawing to determine the winner. If there is no winner, the pot will be rolled over to the next drawing. Anyone not in the US you can check the number at www.powerball.com. The winnings will be payed out prior to the next drawing. Please make sure to send a PM with your number dated prior to the drawing, Any bet made after 10:45 EST on the day of the drawing will be considered null and void and not refunded.

If there is any moderator issue with lotto, All bets will be refunded and lotto will cease.

If everything is ok, Good Luck and happy betting.

The first drawing will be this saturday

It's fake money, so I see no problem with it. Creative idea! Good use of the powerball number to prove that you're not cheating to help someone out.

If someone else has a legitimate issue with this idea, I'll be happy to listen, but I don't see a problem.

People have been doing this in RPG's for years... the only one who wins is the guy running it. I didn't read your rules yet.

Looks like there is little confusion. I sent in all the numbers you only need one number a powerball number.

ok, just to clarify...im just using the actual powerball number....the red ball....so pick 1 number....1 - 42...make your number the title so i dont have to click all the msg's...in the body put the number as well with your name to post in the winning lotto post on sunday and thursday.

Also, just like in real powerball, multiple winners will split the pot. Hopefully i get a good turn out and the pots will rise, Also i will add more number if a bunch of people win and the split is less than their bet of 1 geo.<br>

basically..someones gonna win

I made it more attractive...i entered with 1 geo but gave 999 geo's for who will be the winner.
You will have to spend it quick before the game resets though ;)

Why not just spend 42 geos and buy every number? You need a pick 3 or true 5-ball lotto, otherwise it's too easy to buy the entire spread.

you could spend 42 geos to win 20 possibally split with someone if you want.....but please just 1 ticket per person.

Good idea. Nice to see a little creativity.

Can we assume that you won't:

A) win the lotto with alarming regularity??

OR

B) run-off with everyone's money??

Definitely a creative idea though.

How about this.
Give me 100 geos and I'll roll a dice. 1-2 I pay you double, 3 I pay you 1:1 and 4-6 I keep. who wants to play.. just send me geos I'll tell you the result. :lol:

i've sent a PM to mickey with a way he can oversee the lotto....im not gonna run with 20 geos...if i said the ticket were 100 geos you might be right....but they are 1geo....and luke has put up 1000 geos.....im not sure whats gonna happen with the reset though...=[

Yea or make it so you can only pick one number or like 3 every time so u someone doesnt spend 42 geos or whatever and buy them all.

Remember the LOTTO is only another taxes directed at the poor.

Great idea but I hope you are up for the whinning that will follow. Given the amount of work you will devote to it, I propose that you should be able to collect 10% of the total pot.
