#62

1 thing to consider is that in poker u don’t get to choose yr opening hand in the first place, u only get to decide whether u wish to pursue something with that hand or not


#63

More prizes :gift: :gift:

@RaccoonV has generously sponsored more keys for our lottery :star_struck:

  1. Hover (Steam)
  2. Full Metal Furies (Steam)

Get you submissions in, the lottery ends in 3 hours!

See you all at the drawing :four_leaf_clover:


#64

I think with the poker lottery kind of thing, you can do a Texas Hold’em initial 2 card reveal for everyone, and then attach 3 more cards to each entry… Only if you wish, of course. 5 card deals are just as good as well. :slight_smile:


#65

Wow Hover, that’s cool! I still member how fast that disappeared from the coin shop! Haha Thank you @RaccoonV for the great additions.


#66

Ooh, a lottery-based raffle … with the famous slot icon, the :cherries: !

Here I go:
:grapes: :carrot: :ramen:

Thank you again, @ohko, for another :smile: raffle :tickets: and to @Danacscott and @RaccoonV for their generous additions :blush: !

#71

Entries are now locked :lock:

I am processing the results now :gear:


#72

Yeah :sweat_smile: … I checked in about a week later, so I thought all the raffles were already closed until, lo and behold, I noticed the “Consolation” section of Raffle 3 and jumped in on this as soon as I could … after reading about the rules as much as I could. Glad I did for both raffles! Thank you, @ohko , for the chance!


#73

Also, quick question (I apologize in advance if it is silly) regarding that last dice roll:

Unlike previous raffles, that last dice roll by @discobot has absolutely no relation with which emoji tiles will be chosen, correct? Unlike the :tickets: raffle tickets :tickets: before?


#74

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.


#75

@RosetteoXChrno the dice roll is used to seed a PRNG which is used to provide a deterministic result. The details of this are discussed in Raffle 1 in this post. If you have any questions, please let me know.

The lottery program is similar to the raffle program, but different in some aspects – both are open source. The lottery program and results will be provided in just a few moments.

Remarks

I have to say congrats to @RosetteoXChrno for astonishing last-minute snipe :dart: in Lottery 1 - I don’t think anyone would’ve predicted that :clap:

Personally I’m a bit disappointed that many of the scores are tied and therefore entry timestamp was used for tie breaking many entries. This is not as interesting as having the results driven by the entrants’ picks and will be refined in subsequent lotteries. :woman_mechanic: :man_mechanic:

Thanks to everyone who entered. If you have feedback on the lottery prototype, please share your thoughts below :pray:


Lottery 2: Banner Saga 2, Frostpunk, Dreamstones, Life Is Strange, Furi, and ...
Roulette: Early Access

Darn, no luck this time around. :man_shrugging:
Congratulations to the winners, and I look forward to seeing how the next lottery will turn out.

:rotating_light: Winners, please contact me via PM :rotating_light:

Instead of contacting you all in order, I think this will help expedite the distribution of prizes while still upholding the original prize setup. Open a new PM to @ohko and –

  1. Based on your placement, (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc), you will create an ordered list of your preferred prizes
    • If you placed 1st, you only need to include one (1) choice. First place is guaranteed their pick.
    • If you placed 2nd, you only need to include two (2) prize choices
    • If you placed 3rd, you only need to include three (3) prize choices
    • and so on…
  2. Order your choices with your most preferred game on top of the list and least preferred game on bottom

Example: @Towos2442 placed in 5th and will make a list of his/her five (5) choices out of the seven (7) available prizes and send it to me. The list will be ordered with their favourite choice at the top of the list and least favourite at the bottom.
