Hmm. Mention a large lottery and a bunch of other ones sprout out.
Hopefully it doesn't shrink all the current lotteries!
For those who want to play some of the other lotteries:
-beware that some *could* be scams - I've seen some but luckily I think the most they made out with was 10 BTC or so...if I remember correctly
-if all they say is send money to: (address) without explaining what ways to send from DON'T DO IT
-beware those who are *picking randomly* but they have no system for independently verifying the random number - DON'T DO IT - they could easily enter themselves and then "randomly" pick themselves
There are some that do seem legitimate and are trying but there are also some that look like scams. Some are seeing BitLotto and thinking they can get that kind of jackpot without setting up a cheat proof system or building trust, hoping to run with some BTC.
Just worries me after reading some of the announcements....I welcome honest competition so if any others are looking for advice or help, I'm willing!
