#96

I thought this might have been addressed before the raffle ended but either I missed it or it must have not been seen


#97

I’m back home now so I’m processing the entry data now :gear:

Results will be posted soon :stopwatch:

Imagine each prize has a bucket and each of your tickets has your name printed on it. All tickets for each prize are mixed up and one (1) ticket is drawn at random, per prize bucket. If you submitted six (6) tickets and someone else submitted two (2), it’s three (3) times more likely that one of your tickets will be drawn.

So yes, your odds of winning a particular prize increase per ticket you put in each prize bucket.


#99

Hi! I’m not grokking how generating 8 numbers with the value 1 thru 16 maps to drawing the winning tickets. One possible implementation would put all tickets entered for a game into a game’s bucket, noting an entrant’s name on each ticket, and generating a random number between 1 and the number of tickets in each game’s bucket to draw the winning ticket. For this raffle there’d be 7 buckets. What am I missing?


#100

Just a moment while we deal with a technicality. Raffle 3 winners will be announced momentarily. Thanks for your patience.

We’ll be right back :tv:


#101

The raffle program is open source and linked in the results of each raffle. The technical details are discussed in Raffle 1, if you’re interested. Let me know if you have any questions :space_invader:


#102

Thank you! For everyone else, the answer’s in this post. The numbers generated by discobot are used to provide a 32-bit seed to the random number generator used by the raffle implementation.
