Winning number was 608, find it here

It appears we have no winner again.

So, the next lotto, I'm going to take those tickets from this and previous lotto here and combine them into one big one. So if you got a ticket before this time or last, you'll have another chance to win for FREE this time.

I figured this will get a winner quicker, otherwise, this could go on for months  Shocked

Today is the day of the drawing, the best of luck to everyone as the Jackpot keeps growing. I have a good feeling that we will have a big winner today.

Maybe what you could do though, is if there is no winner from your state lottery, have three others you could check (In a specified written order) to pick the winner from so this contest doesn't run for 3 years Cheesy
Yeah, I might have to start borrowing numbers from other state or country lotteries. Anyone got a suggestion? I could just rotate it around until someone finally wins (if no one wins this time)

Surprisingly, no one wants to play the 0.01BTC lotto so far, prize must be too low for that one  Cry

No need to when the state lotto can do it, the results are on the website, removes me from the equation for tampering. Even though I get what you are saying, even if I did it, someone could check the math, etc. I just wanted to make it simple and using the state lotto is easy, plus they keep a long history on their website of past numbers that won.

I do appreciate the suggestion though.

Suggestion:  Derive the Pick 3 value from a well-known, independent source.

1) Download the posted-daily numbers from the US SEC's EDGAR service,

2) Run the file through md5sum / sha1sum / sha256sum

3) Convert last few digits from hex to decimal.

4) Use last 3 digits from decimal value for Pick 3.

Lottos are fun, especially if it doesn't cost much to play.

I'm going to duplicate my states pick three lotto. It's easy and straight forward, plus I'll use the results from the actual state lotto for fairness. I'm not going to take a percentage of any winnings, so winner takes all (including all mine if you win).

  • Cost to Enter: 1 BTC
  • What do you pick? Any number between 000 and 999; 000 counts as a number, so does 009, 099, etc
  • You can enter as many times as you like for 1 BTC each, so you can pick multiple numbers
  • The maximum (but not minimum) jackpot will always be 500 BTC, the reason for this; it prevents someone from just buying all the numbers for a guaranteed win. So you make it not feasible to try and game the system.
  • Any extra BTC left over after a winner is put into the next jackpot. So if 600 BTC sits in the "bank" (server in this case) and someone wins pick 3, they get 500 BTC and the remaining 100 BTC starts the next pick 3 winner jackpot
  • If no one wins, the jackpot will be used to start another new pick 3 and another date (probably just a few days into the future) will be used to pick the next winning number.
  • There can be multiple winners, so then the winnings are split up (this also further helps to prevent someone from buying every possible number for a guaranteed win)
  • Your 1 BTC and pick number are sent directly to a static IP address: -- This is a server generating BTC every day 24/7/365. Anything it generates on it's own (50 BTC) will also be added to the jackpot for the winner.
  • Please include either your BTC address or IP Address (if you have a static) along with the number you picked, otherwise I won't know where to send the winner the BTC
  • Winning numbers (evening drawing) will be taken from my states official website here so you can check for yourself:
    If you can pick up the local broadcast stations here, you can see the drawing live on TV as well.
  • No last minute submissions. Our timezone here is (-6:00 CST). No more submissions will be accepted *after* noon (12:00PM -6:00 CST) on the day of the drawing. If you send a coin to the server after that time, I'll return it. If you send a coin with no return address or way to know *who* sent it, it just goes into the winning pot for the next drawing.
Questions are welcome, I'll be glad to answer them here.

Winner will be whoever got the lucky pick 3 match with the evening state drawing.

Good luck to you all !!

I'll make another after post up a list of all the numbers that were *picked* by those that entered for further verification (just the numbers, not who for privacy reasons)
