How you did in terms of luck! How much did you spend and how much did you get back? :D

Also, at this point it is statistically advantageous to just send as many 0.1 bets as you can in hopes of getting ticket 777. You will likely recoup any losses. :D

All other tickets processed under normal conditions.

Awe.. Let's let it run through. I want to see a Jackpot happen! I'll send them back your way. I'm just testing the odds on the game at this point.

You saw the spreadsheet, right?

You don't have the number of tickets remaining anywhere on the site, do you?

You see, Cory transactions processing faster by network. Because he sent few bets. I don't know why bitcoin network refusing processing all of yours in single block. I noticed this while tested this lottery. May be it is internal dos protection.

Heh, well I'd expect some wonky things to happen when you're dealing with hundreds of small payments. Wink

I didn't think there were "tickets"... Isn't a random number generated for for each bid, allowing duplication?

I didn't say anything about duplication. This is just random number, allowing duplication. Right. You can get JP either taking few tickets or you will not see it even taking 1000. It is just random.

Interesting..

So what are the odds of 230 / 777 hitting the jackpot? Is it roughly 30%?
