Welcome to the Swampert Lottery!{swampert}

Here's how it goes!
1. Donate to me one psybuck for a ticket and I'll give you a random number between 1 and 20 (Yes only 20 people can enter so far. Don't worry! I'll refund your money if you're too late!). You can buy another ticket but here's how it would cost. Say it's your second ticket bought, you must give 2 Psy$, #3? 3 Psy$, etc...
2. Every Friday, or if the board fills, I will pick a random number and someone will win 90% the money donated (I win get the 10%)! If it's an unpicked # I will re-pick the number, so if you tell more people to join and add Psy$ you raise the reward!
3. I will list the numbers and the people who bought them. Read to see if you won, or just check your inbox. The deadline to send in money is every Friday no matter what time zone. Post if you have questions.
<center>(If you have confusion about the multiple ticket method scroll down for clarification)</center>

The first lottery will be August 24. You may begin sending for that day.
Also I value your opinions. Answer the poll please!

No Gnaaye, you can buy as many tickets that you can afford, and that are left.

Btw Mr.Aqua, do you know HOW to donate? You don't just PM someone... :|

I donated you 10, but you donated 5 back to me. AND it looks like I am on just 4 #s.

<center>DONATION GUIDE</center>
Huh? I didn't donate back...But if you do the math here's some ticket examples for some confused peeps.
1 ticket- 1 Psy$
2 tickets- 3 Psy$
3 tickets- 6 Psy$
4 tickets- 10 Psy$
5 tickets- 15 Psy$
6 tickets- 21 Psy$
Basically, let's say 3 tickets: 1 (1st one)+2 (2nd one)+3 (3rd one). 1+2+3=6 Psy$
7 tickets: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7=28 Psy$
15 tickets (man you'd be rich :shock: ): 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15=Well...over 100 :shock:
Everyone UNDERSTAND!?! :evil:
But as for you Gnaaye...I dunno, do you own a shop or somethin'? I never donated to you... :?

Oh, no. I don't own a shop. I thought 1 $ = 1 ticket :o I got it now.

It's all fine, I was confused. Now it' okay. Sorry for the misunderstanding :oops:

Just a comment, but seeing as how the board is full, surely you could just draw the lottery as soon as it is filled, because otherwise we will be waiting around for ages, despite the fact that noone else can enter :roll:

You're welcome. Actually, don't take it to heart, it's just a saying that's been rattling around in my head since you started this thread. If you were really following that idea, you'd be keeping a percentage of the amount bet regardless, which you're not, unless it doesn't fill up.
