This is a whole new type of random winning game.  Let's give it a shot and see how it goes.

To win in this game

I'll be taking the Tx-hash from the first submitted player that sends in a chance to play, and be converting the first 12 Hex digits (to keep from using absolutely huge numbers) to Decimal, and whoever has the number closest to zero after subtracting the block timestamp of last entry, wins 95% of the pool. The base play is 1BTC, however, anything above (up to 10 BTC) gets the answer divided by(the number of BTC).

I'll do the calculation to determine the winner 12 hours after the last person submits their bid, if no one else submits one within 12 hours.

To make it varied, if less then 5 or so people play, all funds will be returned (minus transaction fees.)

-------------Example--------

For Example, the receiving Tx-hash is 3f10cfa3bb93765bb94d3a917a8ca258ac1f3a2477168308999770b68821c4be, which after converting the first 12 hex values comes out to 69341435640723.  I used the time stamp of block 134244 for this purpose.
69341435640723
-        1309539187
---------------
69340128101536 (Say the person played with 7 BTC)
/                      7
---------------
9905732585933.

At the end, whoever has the lowest number, wins.

-----End Example------------

The base play is 1BTC, however, anything above (up to 10 BTC) gets the answer divided by (the number of BTC.)

Send 1-10 BTC to

Just a note however…If the time value ends up being bigger than the Tx-hash value, I'll end up using the absolute value of the answer (so it cannot be below zero...for instance, a -1025456465 would end up being 1025456465)

Edit: Fixed the wallet Address, sorry about that.

Should have been more clear....base play = minimum.  I'm not the best with fleshing out stuff like that:)

I got 1309539187 from the last completed block as of the time of this post (Block 134244).  If you look at the block in BlockExplorer, and click on "Raw Block Data," you see that under time.  It's just another random number generated, and verifiable, by the network to make sure I'm not scamming anyone.
