Wow, for the price of ONE entry you could just buy a hoodie like that.

Ok I shall change the entry price.

I'm still trying to iron out the bugs as this is the first one.

But hopefully i'd like to run one of these a month so i've lowered the price again to attract more people and try to get the numbers assigned pretty fast due to the volatile BTC prices.

did you really put a thought on this before posting?

why would I bet more than half of the price of this hoodie and having a chance of 2% of winning it? And you will earn more than 30 times the price of this hoodie if you sell all the entrys. The only thing I will bet here is that no one will enter this with these conditions.

Of course.

What would you see as a fair entry price, as I said earlier, this is the first one and there are bound to be some issues but i'd like things to remain fair.

As I have paid for and provided the first prize then I shall of course want to be reimbursed, however I have also mentioned that 66% of the entry fee shall go towards the next prize, it shall be 66% minimum so if I see something good I think you guys would like to win then I'll of course be willing to use more towards it.

Im thinking that future prizes could be anything from apparel to computer equipment for mining, litecoins are booming these days and im sure a few miners would like to try and win a cheap 6950 to add to their rig.

Im open to any suggestions you guys have :)
