Woops, didn't check the forums for 2 days >_>

Also, if I were to run an actual microlotto, this would all be automated, so you'd know if you won or not right away ( which would make it a bit more addictive, me thinks Wink )

This might be more successful with a smaller range (1-10, or 1-20) etc.

Keep it coming, the jackpot's only growing. =)

The cool thing about this system is it can continue in perpetuity.  Since 19% of the coins are kept in the jackpot to convince people to keep playing.

Oh, now I see.

Well, until I found an adequate sha-256 rainbow table, I guess I'll take Number 55.

No.  Go to http://www.random.org/integers/?mode=advanced

The random NUMBER generated BY the seed is between 1 and 100.  The seed is just kind of a "password" to make sure you always get the same random number.

Seed -> SHA256 -> hash I posted above.

Yeah but I thought the seed is inside the interval (1,100), isn't it ?

Yup, that way I can reveal the seed at a later point, so you can see the winning number.  You'll also be able to verify that I didn't change the seed, because of the hash I posted above.  BUT, you can't cheat and find the result beforehand.

The unsalted hash of the seed for the solution (as per random.org) is given.

So, basically what to do is guessing a number in the interval (1,100) and the (unsalted) hash of the solution is already given ?

This is a test run to show everyone how it works, and illustrate the benefit over a regular lotto.

This is not a real lottery.  No money required to play.  Please play so that I can judge how things would have gone.

Here's how it works:

1) I've chosen a random seed to be entered here:

http://www.random.org/integers/?mode=advanced

under the "pregenerated seed".  It's between 1 and 100 (inclusive).
The SHA-256 hash of the seed is: 627c22822c1dee884411b8f3a09b8545616bcf9837f080a6df26704f604b6d0d

2) You pay 1 "fakecoin" to enter, and PM me your guess.  1 guess per fakecoin.  I add this to the pot.

If you guessed correctly, you get 80% of the "fakecoins", 1% will go to me, and 19% will go into the next pot.  Otherwise, I post your guess on the "Failed guess" section and update the jackpot.

Current Jackpot: 34 fakecoins
Chances to win: 1/71
