made a python script for this:

Code:
tickets = [
    ['1EPd8DM5vQ3UvQY6Yr4bcYk13a4XsBnwz3', 5],
    ['1EnvHJgQh7WGPpnL686RDQFW6FEeznTbkB', 10],
    ['1tqwh6iBYk7F7gcVQ7PKuamf1PR4QgbgF', 20],
    ['1HvsWwqqtc775XM2iYHjAoekpzH3dptVNr', 41],
    ['1JosHcP8sVeBCdonMDSaZfS6cb9Ub46cmJ', 40],
    ['1FZ8tW5wjh1EDFsztSQYtpkxsa1C79GvZX', 125],
    ['1DpL7b8XBE7N2FecL6GGMtSRVUyBKC6Rd3', 251],
    ['16Uox1JKSqfe5LpWpm5TVVqdCcqBiybfgP', 5],
    ['19xRS9cz3m8YXnf83eWe2vHRL1skgixJre', 20],
    ['1FdtJayHR5qWJ67RAhGDjgedVKjFSHSKad', 75],
    ['1BUN1vb6r6fz1peafNrptCtMuRwVq8aNKo', 5],
    ['1AiqDfTWsT2wiu9JqgFJaCYpJZ5XBMGRPy', 50],
    ['12DnFV5JeeD8oBeVd17hkqZCaAnKzWeoNp', 15],
    ['17r7ALUqoKQ3d8MpQ8QBTfqiEoQMiztRDh', 20],
    ['1HvsWwqqtc775XM2iYHjAoekpzH3dptVNr', 50],
    ['1QKVV9BHmZNJkMCUNyssYX1BimzXZ72dQP', 125],
    ['1NV8i5tQGysjogJZcZ2mAQkf6NsT4ccw2Q', 100],
    ['19oR5xAYaASPtPxgaV3BuQTCn7Dh9Wrzqw', 40]
]

result = []

total = 0
wanted = tickets[0][1] * 2
index = 0
for i in range(1,len(tickets)):
    total += tickets[i][1]
    if (total >= wanted):
        print (tickets[index][0], wanted)
        total = total-wanted
        index = index +1
        wanted = tickets[index][1] * 2

I am considering also to use Mega Millions numbers, like BitLotto. Any input?
I think it's a great idea!  Grin Would you hash it like me?
Yes, I think I will use the same hash... Wink

ahhh, i thought it had to be the very next person contributed exactly double or else you were screwed
No, fortunately not  Wink.

anyone who gets his 1BTC back yet? Smiley thikin about to sign up
The joke is that the first ones get probably the most money because if you are the last, you probably must wait untill there are 2.5-3 times more participants than now.

yes and no. For sure older ones would probably get more referals, but since it goes to the first through third level referers then a random one everyone has an equal chance of getting 1 / 4 of a bitcoin. Also many newer people are using other newer peoples referals so that helps too. Just because your old like me http://fxnet.bitlex.org/?ref=270 (see 270) doesn't necasserily mean you have any greater chance than a newbie (I have no referers so I don't Sad)

edit: if you want something "fairer" check out http://sldoubler.com/?id=200
The first ones had a far longer time to get those 1 / 4 of a bitcoin and in the beginning the chance to get it was far, far bigger Wink. And these have the same chance as you, now to get those. So what I mean, in this system, it gets less and less attractive to play if it is about those random bitcoins.

I think next time (at the end of this game, at least 7 days from now on) I will anounce when exactly the game begins (in UTC). Then everybody can play about the same time Cool...

For some reason this sounds the beginning of a ponzi or pyramid scheme. Once someone pulls out or stops paying then they are screwed no?

Somebody always gets screwed.  It's basically double or nothing on the play.  At my last transaction of 2BTC I highly doubt somebody will play 4BTC... Oh well.  Here's to hoping.. Worst case I'm out 2BTC Tongue
I hope for you somebody will Wink. At least there is 5-6 days still to play...
29  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Double Trouble 2! Double your money within 7 days! on: June 05, 2011, 08:24:05 PM
what happens if two people send the same amount to double the one before them?
What do you mean exactly?
If three entries are for example:

1
2
2

the first one gets 2 first, the second one has to wait on 2 more (because he should get 4). Or:

1
1
1

first one gets 2, the second and third have to wait.

Does this explain it to you?
It simply shifts to the next if there is enough money to pay the previous double the amount back.

Users, take note, I've updated the website with a more simple un-cheatable method of getting the winner! I decided to also use USA Mega Millions numbers as one of the random inputs. See bitlotto.com for details.
Great! That is pretty cool.
Maybe some suspect you to be the owner of USA Mega Millions Wink. Grin

I used mybitcoin.com - it shows up in my history

it came from 1CBvDM2M37ExZjWjJDKEED7c9KGNEHY46k (I mean should have came from)

edit: I'm not trying to get money out of you, I'm just trying to find out what happend.
Please don't use an ewallet, the adress it sends from isn't one you can get money on.
Do you think you were 1EnvHJgQh7WGPpnL686RDQFW6FEeznTbkB?

33  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Double Trouble 2! Double your money within 7 days! on: June 05, 2011, 05:58:24 PM
Ok I get it now. Phew! I was worried about the sustainability if that were the case  Grin
Cool game. 6 days to go.
=)
7 days actually, since it is 7 days since the last Wink
34  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Double Trouble 2! Double your money within 7 days! on: June 05, 2011, 05:18:01 PM
Added to the first post that you don't have to double: you can participate with an arbitrary amount.
