Alliance Lottery

Post  Tara Bastet on Sat Jul 17, 2010 10:34 am

Brief description of how the lottery works:

1) The purchaser of lotto numbers chooses their own numbers between 1 and 100. A maximum of four numbers can be purchased by any one person per lottery at a cost of 500g each. There will be a 5th free number with the purchase of four if funds allow. These funds are covered by donations from anyone in the alliance.

2) The [DR] Guild leader, Tara Bastet, will host and hold all funds during the lottery. All relevant information will be logged on a spreadsheet. At the end of the lottery, there will be an emote /roll 100 which will be witnessed by a minimum of two non-DR guild members. Numbers can be purchased ONLY from Tara Bastet up through Saturday, 7 pm Central, prior to the day of the /roll.

3) The lottery will be held twice monthly with the /roll being held at 1:00 pm Central, 19:00 GMT, on the 2nd and 4th Sundays. The winning number and name or names will be announced on alliance chat and all winning information will be posted on the forum.

4) Prizes from one lotto must be collected before the end of the next lotto. Unclaimed prizes will roll over to the new lottery.

5) If more then one person chose the winning number, the prize will be equally split. In the event that no one chose the winning number, the funds roll over into the next Lotto. If the winning number was selected only by someone who is no longer in the alliance, there will be a 2nd /roll to determine a new alliance member winner.

Note:

The lottery is an alliance-wide event and you must be a member of the alliance in order to win. Anyone no longer in the alliance for any reason when the lottery ends will forfeit their entry fee and cannot collect a prize. If an entire guild has left, the names of those who entered from that guild will be crossed off. Under no circumstances will a refund be issued.

Results of the 1st Alliance Lottery

Post  Tara Bastet on Mon Jul 26, 2010 1:49 pm

The Lottery prize was 326.5K with 8 winners; each receieving 40,812g. The winning number was 18. Winners were: Bethany, Questor & Bulletproof [DR]; Quick & Micro [NOTR]; Diak & Gillian [RoS] and Maledictus [ema].

Congratulations to all winners and hope to see you participate in future Lotto's!

Note: The total Lotto prize is often increased substantially through donations. While there is no requirement to donate, it has been the past custom for winners to donate 10% minimum back to the next lotto. This simply happened through the course of having over 40 total lotto's. However, anyone can donate in any amount of 500g increments. Donations can be made in one of two ways. Up front, which increases the lotto prize total or into a kitty which pays for the 5th "free" number. When this kitty has no funds, there is no 5th number.

Results of the 4th Lotto

Post  Tara Bastet on Sun Sep 12, 2010 12:25 pm

The Cookie God [ema] won the entire 431K Lotto prize, number 92. Congrat's Cookie!!

Thank you to everyone who contributes to the lotto, and a special thank you to Valeria [ema] and Snipey [Evil] for their very generations donations. Without their large contributions, the Lotto would not be near as successful. Also a special thank you to Josus The Rit [DR] for donating 40 ecto for the lotto. Every winner will receive a two ecto bonus prize until all ecto are gone.

Note: The total Lotto prize is often increased through donations. While there is no requirement to donate, it has been the past custom for winners to donate 10% minimum back to the next lotto. However, anyone can donate in any amount of 500g increments. Donations can be made in one of two ways. Up front, which increases the lotto prize total or into a kitty which pays for the 5th "free" number. When this kitty has no funds, there is no 5th number. We are short on reserve kitty funds and without additional donations only the 1st 29 people to enter will receieve a 5th number on the next lotto.

Results of the 5th Alliance Lotto

Post  Tara Bastet on Sun Oct 17, 2010 2:00 pm

The total Lotto prize was 404K with five winners, each person's share of 80,800g. The winning number was 2. Winners were: Ayla Serenity, Mallory Olivia, Tara Ecall [DR] and Salma Widefoot, Shadow Flier [Evil].

Congratulations to all winners and hope to see you participate in future Lotto's!

Thank you to everyone who contributes to the lotto. Your generations donations help ensure substantial prizes and continued success.

Salma Widefoot is no longer in our alliance, therefore her share will rolll over to the next lotto. Ayla Serenity declined her share and it will be added to the kitty to cover the cost of the 5th number. The kitty was in the red by 19 people this past lotto, so I'm very pleased to have Ayla's donation. Very Happy

Results of the 6th Alliance-Wide Lotto

Post  Tara Bastet on Mon Nov 01, 2010 2:43 pm

The total Lotto prize was 545K with five winners; each person's share of 109K. The winning number was 52. Winners were: Joel Arath & Lucius Armada [emd], Salix Veritas [ema], Sayomi Kimuri [FL], Tara Bastet [DR].

Congratulations to all winners and hope to see you participate in future Lotto's!

Mallory Olivia [DR] failed to log on during the past two weeks so forfeited her 80,800g share of the previous lotto prize. It has been added to the new lotto, which is starting out looking mighty good thanks to donations.

Note: The total Lotto prize is often increased through donations. While there is no requirement to donate, it has been the past custom for winners to donate 10% minimum back to the next lotto. However, anyone can donate in any amount of 500g increments. Donations can be made in one of two ways.

Results of the 7th Alliance Lottery

Post  Tara Bastet on Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:10 pm

The total Lotto prize was 684.5K with 10 winners; each person's share of 68.4K. The winning number was 63. Winners were: Assassin Jelx [BAU], Freya Darkclaw [BBQ], Mosule Grit & METSU [DR], Brutus Culus & Joel Arath [emd], Atheus The Healer [ema], Jack Bourbon Scotch, Masta Gold Digga & Arora Flair [DPR].

Congratulations to all winners and hope to see you participate in future Lotto's.

As always, donations are most appreciated. They are the life-blood of the lotto and help to keep it fun for all. This lotto had a lot of very generous donations in amounts up to 100K. Thank you to all for your support.

Note: I made an error and missed an 11th winner, Bloodbow Rayne [BAU]. Each person should have received 62,182g instead of 68,400g. Rather then request partial prize returns from the other winners, numerous people chipped in and Rayne also receieved 68.4K. Thank you to Marvin, Weza, Mia, Tainted, Grit, Flower, Wy, Ayla and Cold Red for bailing me out.

I do announce on ac the name, guild and amount each time a donation is received unless the person has asked to remain announomous or the amount is only a couple K or less. I won't get into the practice of listing all donations, but since requested, will for this one. Due to the volume of donations, and the space I had available for logging it, I dropped guild tags and full names though.

Up front (to increase the prize): Joel, Lucies and Salix 11K each, Mallory 79K*, Udo 1K, Tidus 20K, Braur 3K, Cojuer 10K, Josus 2K, Safire 12K, Tristana 10K, Essence 15K, Tess 15K, Weza 4.5K, Marcus (AL) 20K and Snipey 24.5K.

Reserve funds/Kitty (to cover the cost of the 5th number): Ayla, Kain, Aeris and Lelum .5K each, Lucies 1K, Demonical 18K, Adaam 8K, Tara (me) 11K, Sarathena 23K, Essence 15K and Qais 100K.

*Forfeit of winnings due to not coming online for two weeks. The balance of Mallory's winnings was used to reimburse a shortage of Kitty funds from the previous lotto to get it back out of the red.

Thanks to all the donations to the Kitty this time, we should have plenty of reserve funds for the next upcoming lotto. Ther's enough funds to cover 182 entries.

This was our largest lotto ever in terms of people entering. 173 people purchased 4 numbers, plus three others entered with fewer numbers.

I always put all winners on my friends list and contact them as soon as I see them online. Katies was contacted and paid. Only one person has not been online and risks forfeiting his share if he hasn't been online by close of the current lotto.

The Lottery prize was 1,028,000g with 9 winners; each receieving 114,222g. The winning number was 18 (again). Winners were: Questor Gauntlet and Magrat Armstrong [DR], Laith Raven [DPR], Marianne Renoir X, Morganna Deathbow, Katies Spoken and Jason of Cantha [ema], May Contain Fail [Gaki] and Spiritual Cj [emd].

Congratulations to all winners and hope to see you participate in future Lotto's!

The total Lotto prize hit an all time high this time thanks to numerous donations in varying amounts from members throughout the alliance. In addition, Diesel Bow, a winner from the previous lotto, failed to collect his share of the prize, so that 112,214g was rolled over into this prize. Number sales comprised only 380K of the over 1 million total prize.

Note: There will be 2nd lotto this month due to the holidays.

10th and Final Alliance Lottery Results

Post  Tara Bastet on Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:54 am

The Lottery prize was 1,233,500g with 5 winners; each receiving 246.7K.* The winning number was 76. Winners were: Stonesoul Spirit & Shad Oni [ema] and Caller of the Wilds, Anya Leechtoes & Ritualist Bow [DR].

Congratulations to all winners!

The total Lotto prize hit an all time high thanks to donations from 23 members members from throughout the alliance. Amounts ranged from a 2K to 3 members who donated 100K or more each. Number sales comprised only 380.5K of the over 1.2 million total prize.

* Shad Oni had left the alliance prior to the lotto /roll. Typically, his share of the winnings would have rolled over into the next lotto, however, this was the final lotto. It was decided the fairest way to handle these funds was to split it four ways and award the other four winners the bonus. Each of those four received an additional 61,675g for a total prize each of 308,375g.
