A Generic Lottery -- Week 2: Generically a boring week. So boring it had to be extended.

Yes, another one of these lotteries. I'm gonna be making one because I'm feeling really generous. I know, there's a "Generosity thread" in and of itself, but I thought a lottery would really spice things up a bit more. I guess I can get a bunch of business due to Tour de Vizzed, so that's nice. I'm unoriginal, I know.

Anyways, here's how it will work.

You'll buy as many tickets you want for a specified price, and it helps with the payout. At the end of the week, I'll take all of the earned Viz, and do the final payout to the top three winners.

Let's do the Math... Sort of.

So, let's say we have a total of 10,000 Viz at the end of the week.

Well, I take that Viz, and take 10%, because I want something to keep, too. That leaves 9000.

I will then divide it between the top three as such:

1st place (who gets the most): 6000 (which leaves 3000)
2nd & 3rd place (get equal amount): 1500

Which equally divides it. Depending on the amounts, the information about can vary.

Prices and Current Lotto

Prices for the tickets are always 50 Viz. That means most users can very easily compete. All you have to do to pay is post here specifying how much tickets you want, and wire me the Viz. If you do not post on the thread but send the Viz to me, I will send it right back to you and you do not acquire a ticket. That can get very hectic.

The current lottery amount is 6500 Viz.

That's really about it. Feel free to test you luck for 50 Viz a piece folks, and enjoy the ride.

Gold Card - What is it?

After Week 1 and its marginal success, I had a thought: We should spice this up... times 3. I released a new way of winning more Viz. The Gold Card.

The Gold Card is a nice thing. Each week, one member can win a Gold Card. What this does is really useful: If you win that week, you may double your winnings. If you do not win or you don't seem satisfied with doubling your score, you can steal half of ONE of the 2nd or 3rd winner's Viz. That means they only get half of their winnings, and you get the other half. So if I were to win 2nd, and you used the gold card on me, I only got half of my winnings and you took the other half. Remember: You can only use the latter choice on second or third! You may not save the card for later use! If you do not use it with 48 hours of your Gold Card win, it's trashed! You are only eligible for the Gold Card if you buy 15 tickets or more.

The more tickets you buy, the greater chance you have for the Gold Card! But be warned: That does not guarantee you the card. Someone with 15 tickets can even have the Card. It's random... and fun. More questions? Message me.

Help Wanted!

I'm offering a job to anyone who takes it. Only one person may. First come, first served:

What I want is someone to be a bank for me. What that means is that you supply me with Viz if I start running low (which I usually won't) when I ask you. I will not pay you back, however, you get free tickets every week I ask you. How much tickets you get is up to me and how much you gave me for the lottery.

Long story short, I want a bank. I will not pay you back, but when you supply me Viz when I ASK FOR IT, you get free tickets. How much you get is up to me. You MUST be dedicated to the job. If you step down, you will not be eligible again for the job, I'm afraid.

So, just wondering. How exactly will you choose the winning ticket? You going to literally make a little piece of paper for each person, mix them up, and draw? Or use a random name drawing computer feature? Haha, or just claim you draw a name, but really just pick someone's name without factoring in how many tickets they buy . We could never know how the pick really happens. Devious

Hehe, I'm not that generous. Okay, then, putting you in the statboard.

rcarter2 :

Rats! He got me!

Nah, just kidding. I was actually going to do the first option of putting names in a hat, but the low price sort of made me steer away from that. As of now, I'm going to use some random list generator... thing.

Or... I could be devious... Hm...

Alrighty, entered.

Well, as I stated above, I'm actually going to use an online randomizer a friend showed me a while back. Since I never had a use for it, why not use it for the lottery?

tgags123 :

Thank you!

Anyways... WOW! I am way overdue on this thing. I need to have the payout now.

Okay, so Zanderlex was also brought back in due to my absence on the thread... lucky him!

Okay, so, let's do that math...

Take ten percent of the payout (after rounding it): 8532

Now, to reveal our winners...

1st place: aux1printer! - 4500 viz
2nd place: zanderlex! - 2016 viz
3rd place: Barathemos! - 2016 viz

Congratulations! Viz will be delivered shortly to our winners! Nice job, guys!

aux1printer :
zanderlex :
Barathemos :

Week 2 starts now.

We also have a new feature, called a Gold Card! At the end of our week, the winner of the Gold Card has two choices: To either double their winnings (if they win) or if they didn't win, they get to divide winnings with one of the second or third place winners! (So first place is immune!)

You win a Gold Card randomly. The more tickets you buy, the greater the chance you have.

Now...

Are we ready to bet?!

Barathemos :

The gold card can be won by only one member. The more tickets you buy, the more chances you have at getting it. With it, you can double your winnings if you win the lottery that week, or half the winnings of ONE of the second or third place winners and take the half. I'll explain more in the original post.
