---Ticket price: BTC0.005---Current prize: BTC0.11---Tickets sold: 8---


Hello,
Since my free raffle (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=219632.0) has started to gain some traction, I have decided to redo my 150% payout raffle, hopefully some people will actually enter this time.

I would like to gain trust before trading with other users for obvious reasons, so I am holding a Bitcoin raffle where I will pay out 50% more than the total amount from bidders, plus a 0.05 btc starting prize. I simply ask that the winner leave a good review on the trust thing below my username.
For example, if 10 people buy a raffle ticket (0.005 btc), I will send 0.075 to the winner. I am, however, going to limit my contribution to 0.2 btc plus the 0.05 to start. If I sell less than 5 tickets, I will send every entrant twice what they sent.

To enter, send at least 0.005 btc to 124YPLs72BiMgHkBqkL3G3Ag3TCWvWmgss (an easywallet just for this raffle) and post your address so that I can prove that the winnings went out to an actual person in the thread and I know who to congratulate. If you send more, you will be buying multiple raffle tickets.

The drawing will be held at 5pm EST (9:00 UTC) on Saturday, June 1st. I will assign each ticket a number and then use a random number generator to find out who is the winner


I will try to update this thread with the current prize amount and the number of tickets sold and to answer any questions.
Thanks

Sure, you're entered in my spreadsheet. This brings the prize to 0.0575 with one ticket 'sold'

I'm in for 3 tickets, in the spirit of good faith.  I do this against my better judgement.  If you run off the the 2 bucks I'll chalk it up to a lesson learned.  Thanks for the raffle.

Great, that brings the total prize up to BTC0.12 (received 0.015 total) with 4 tickets sold. Thanks for trusting me not to run away
EDIT: It was actually up to 0.095, I was accidentally multiplying the starting bid by 1.5 as well,

Not a problem. I just hope u understand why people would choose not to enter.  Due to the high amount of scams posted on the boards.

I'm sorry, the free ticket was only to the first to respond, otherwise it costs BTC0.005. Did you send a transaction and not have it confirm yet? If so, what was your transaction ID?
I do have you entered into the free raffle, though

Nobody OP is a dirtbag.  Ran off with the coins but not surprised as he has few posts, has removed coins from the wallet and was called out for being a scanner b4 the raffle.  Probably the worst scam ever and I fell for it Hans lesson learned.

I am so, so sorry, I forgot to hold the drawing yesterday, that was very stupid of me. The final prize was BTC0.14 except I added 0.01 for being late.

Congrats to n00ber, you win BTC0.15!!! Please conform when you receive your riches

Thanks to everyone who entered and I sincerely apologize for my lateness

You may have noticed the scam accusations by me inregrads to your raffle.  My question is why were the funds of each entry in the wallet withdrawn before the contest end date instead of being left for the winner?

Also curious how you can hype two threads for a few days and completely forget about them in less then 24 hrs?  Does any of these questions I asking about strike you as odd behavior in any way?

That's all I want to know, I've given this topic to much attention already.  All the best with ur rep.

As for the funds, I don't really remember what I did as far as moving them around, I didn't think I moved them before the end date, but maybe I did and forgot, and you're probably better at reading the blockchain... I used an easywallet address for the raffle entries (I know it isn't the most secure way) except after the end I put them into a regular wallet that I use because I had to send the winner more than is in the easywallet (used just for entries).
I honestly don't know how I forgot about them, and I know this is odd behavior. I completely get your scam accusations, I said the drawing would be at one time and then I didn't hold the drawing.
On a second note, I'm sending a pm to n00ber because he hasn't been online in a while and I want to make sure everything went okay with the transaction and maybe get a rep score.

Yeah there is no proof they aren't colluding, they are both new members and no kind of proof of how the raffle was drawn or anything. Likely a scam.

I guess i don't really have a way of proving that I'm not personABCD, but I will note that I myself was afraid to buy a ticket at first, I don't think it'd be very smart to post that I was afraid that the thread is a scam if I was the person running it

A provably fair raffle system rather than you arbitrarily picking out a name which you can decide yourself.

Serious question: Would a posted screencap, hashed (sha-2), values added, & the modulus of the result by the number of entries to determine the position of the winner in relation to the order entered, be considered fair?

I'm just thinking out loud.
