There was one winner this week in our Match1 game! He/she was paid out .852, (after rake and transaction fees). Congrats!
The Match2 and Match6 games had no winners, so the games will continue! The Match1 game resets with a new address.
Next weeks drawings will take place in blocks 132501, 132502, and 132503.
Full results have been posted (in a much cleaner version than before) at:http://www.btclottery.com/results/week5.php
There was one improper bet in the Match1 game. Player 7 bet .01, and the standard bet is .1 His bet was returned.
This has brought me to a new rule at btclottery.com. If a player makes an improper bet, we will first subtract the transaction fee it would cost to return that bet. But if that leaves a zero or less-than-zero sum, the bet will just stay in the pot and the players ticket will not count towards the drawing.
This week it cost me more to send back a bad bet then the bet was actually worth. I barely make anything running this lottery and really don't want it to cost me either. So please pay attention to your bet amounts. Otherwise your bet will be returned *minus* the transaction fee it would cost to send it back. If it costs equal to or more to send it back then I won't. Your improper bet will just stay in the prize pool, but your ticket won't count.
Thanks for playing, and good luck!
