Black Lion LOTTO Syndicate (It could be you)
« on: August 20, 2013, 05:21:42 PM »
Hi all,

Welcome to the Black Lion Guild Wars 2 "LOTTO" Syndicate.

On this page you will find what the lotto is about and what the rules are to play. This will hopefully take off and can be a laugh and another reason to log into game to see if you are the jackpot winner ;) that's unless i take all the coins and legit off to Blacktide, hiding in some dirty tavern drinking it away on ale awaiting the wrath of TFA's Assassin's! Well i am a thief! ;)

Anyhow the rules are below and i hope you all find some time to play. It's not pressured just play anytime you want. The game will run for a month and we will see if this is worth carrying on if popular.

Lotto Information & Rules :

1.) The lotto consists of 50 numbers (1 to 50) with 5 numbers drawn each week.
Those numbers will then be used in order of them being released from the machine to find a match. If the first number drawn has no match to a members number/ticket we will then use the second ball drawn, and so on until all 5 have been drawn. If we have no matches with the 5 numbers drawn the jackpot rolls over to the following week.
2.) Select between 1 and 5 tickets to play (1 ticket = 1 number between 1-50)
3.) Each ticket costs 5 silver of GW2 coin to play
5.) Post your selected number(s) below. (keep an eye on numbers already claimed by other members in the post for that weeks draw).
6.) Post the coins to myself in game (Shadowborn). (If no payment is made your numbers are void for that draw) Also payment has to be made before the draw takes place.
7.) Await the draw. So in short. The draw will work that one person will win and that will be determined on the numbers drawn in order. e.g the first number drawn of the 5 numbers will be the winning number if no person has the first number the second drawn number will be the winning number and so on till all five are drawn. If no person has any of these numbers the lotto will rollover to the following weeks draw, giving a bigger jackpot.

Any problems/questions please ask me in game or on the forum.

Have fun all and GOOD LUCK  :D

So we can't take numbers that went before at all? Im crap at math but if we have to pick 5 numbers per ticket not re using numbers we can then only have a maximum of 10 tickets before numbers 1 to 50 are all used up?

Shadow, use the guild trove reserved for veterans and higher to deposit the funds. The 3g80s which are already inside can be considered a donation for the first winners :)

If people pick 5 "tickets" then it will take 10 to exhaust the possibilities, yes.  But people can pick between 1-5 "tickets", so 50 people could pick 1 each.  That is if I'm understanding Shadows rules correctly.

Munkky I know I am a depressive but its not a crime to try and understand the whole thing.... I have enough crimes to be getting on with.  ;) LoL  After sorting through what has already been taken. Finally mines are 6, 12, 24, 36, 48.

Just to update on numbers already taken.. 5/7/9/22/42/10/20/30/40/50/1/2/3/11/13/17/18/21/23/4 and mine above.

There are 30 numbers left which in my estimation means that if each number can be used but once then 6 tickets are left.
So 6 more tickets up for grabs guys!

30 tickets matey, with a maximum of 5 tickets each. 
GW lotto is a single number rather than 5, since the chances of matching 5 numbers would be astronomical, especially since two people couldn't pick the same number ;)
