Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Hi,

I just checked out the bitlotto page and I was wondering how it is possible,
that the pot is currently at 36.88 BTC if each ticket costs 0.25 BTV.

Could you explain?

Thank you!

Sure. The website is trying to calculate what the winner will get. 99%. I'm wondering now would it be better to not do that and just show the whole pool? 100%

No, not at all - I think it is a good thing, that the site displays the "winning amount"

But I just didn't get it. Maybe you could add the info, that this is the pot minus the lottery fee.

You could also display the total amount of tickets sold or the winning odds respectively.

Thanks for explaining!

So far we are over 40 BTC. 42 BTC to be exact. Worth about $500 right now but I'm still thinking we could hit one that's over 1,000 USD. I hope.

A month is so long to wait. I hope this idea becomes more popular to the point where we can draw once a week or something Smiley

ME TOO!! I think sometime soon I may experiment trying every two weeks...the problem is that there may not be enough players yet. By increasing the frequency I'm going to hurt the jackpot a bit.

Just passed the 50 BTC threshold! Woohoo! That's about 750 USD in current prices. I'm still betting on a 1,000 USD jackpot!  Wink (I'm guessing an increase in BTC value!)

Everyone buy more tickets. I have done the math and I have 104% chance of winning. In conclusion, I conclude that I'm the clear winner this month.

You might want to re-check that math!  Wink I can't imagine any scenario where you can guarantee a win other than buying all the tickets yourself and I know you didn't do that!

I haven't updated my site to reflect current prices but we are pretty close to 1,000 USD of BTC. And there is STILL ONE week to go! Should be interesting! See bitlotto.com to enter. JUST don't enter last minute so your not late for the draw. Tickets that are late, unfortunately are not valid. Also remember to always send from Bitcoin running on your computer and back up the wallet after sending payment. GOOD LUCK all that are playing!

Out of curiosity has anyone publicly talked about their winnings?

Only one, username: 1fyll - they registered that name after the win so it could have been someone using another name here....they picked that name because that's the address I HAD to pay to based off of the transaction hash...I really don't know much about who they really are though. (other than they have over 2,000 USD worth of BTC at current prices!)

The other winner never announced themselves, so who knows who it was.
One announced and one didn't. I'm kind of hoping someone wins who is already registered and is willing to say they won.

I think a lot of people here value privacy. Sometimes I think people don't want to play other lotteries because their name shows up everywhere that they won money. That's what makes BitLotto unique. Even though it's anonymous I can't manipulate the results making myself be the winner. It's all based off of the hash of the transaction and I have to send it back to the exact wallet that send that transaction. That allows me to operate so everyone can be anonymous YET still demonstrate that the rightful person got the winnings.

Anyways, if you decide to enter- GOOD LUCK!

I know, I was just explaining mostly for other people reading. It's pretty much the first lottery that allows players and winners to be anonymous and still have no cheating! It's very unique.

Well since you'll brag about it, I hope  you win!  Wink (Having people come out and announce will probably help -some-people realize that people are in fact getting the BTC!)

Whoohooo! Just over 1,000 officially now!

Would everyone like having the price to be 0.25/ticket next month or do you want it lower? (It's a fine line between number of players vs price and how it effects total jackpot)
