ROFL a ticket is just one number then. LoL had that been mentioned I would have had no trouble understanding. I thought we had to pick 5 numbers for a ticket but only to match one of them at a time with 5 chances.  Urgh that means I selected 5 tickets and not just one.  ::)  :D

I have to admit no one did make that simple explanation, 1 number = 1 ticket . Being an alternative thinker is what makes me useful in a group when everyone else thinks the same I can bring up other options. It has been known to save the day as well as get a laugh.   ;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?

You dont have to pick 5 mate as stated in the rules 5 is your maximum your allowed i gave this number to start with to see what the intake of members would play. If the tickets all go this week and more want to play the following week the max number of tickets per member will decrease to most prob 3 as its max, giving more members achance to play.

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.

Thats correct mate

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


Updated the thread so hopefully all can understand better

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 ;)

Actually it would be 1 on 3.236.994 :p
Winning euromillions with two extra stars added would be :D = 1 on 116.531.800

Yeah lets keep it simple  ???

50 tickets available = 50 numbers to choose, 5 numbers being your max amount.

First ball out of the machine will be used to match a ticket, if no match is found the second ball out will be used to find if a member has that number and so on till all 5 have been drawn for that week. First matched number we find that member wins  ;)

While I dont play, I think I can login and throw some currency and numbers at this.

Also would you like this post pinned?

Would be in the post above stating the next draw which is tomorrow the 30th draw, sadly no members have paid into playing this week so all 1-50 numbers are free
