The raffle will occur on time, regardless of how many tickets will be sold.  so far there are 4 entries. (updated 8/25/2011 10:41 PM CST)

Rules + Prize:
entry ticket is 1 BTC

Up to 20 raffle tickets will be sold.  Drawing occurs when the 20th ticket has sold or 1 week from original (this) post, whichever comes first.

I will post the number of tickets available after processing each ticket purchase to keep everyone up to date.

To purchase a ticket, please PM me and I will give you an address to send your 1 BTC to.  When you send the BTC, tell me what your sending address is so I can associate your nickname with the sending address.

I will use your nickname and enter them into third-party draw service provided bu rangom.org

random.org will pick a winner and the results are public.

I will PM the winner for shipping address.  I will not ship outside of US, so if you are not in US, please don't buy a ticket.

The card is a 5830 with the bracket clipped of at the bottom.  you get everything it came with.  if you care about the bracket being clipped off, please don't buy a ticket.
this card was used for a few days until I upgraded to 5850s.
Here are the pics:

I'd consider entering if you changed your draw method to something more open. Perhaps something similar to bitlotto's method, which can be seen here: http://bitlotto.com/details.html. That way we can all be sure you're not manipulating the results.

I won't be involved in results.  i will submit all entrants to random.org (3rd party) and they pick a winner randomly.

bitlotto seems to be about sending winnings to a bitcoin address (oversimplified overview).  I can't send a 5830 to a bitcoin address... or am I missing your point here?

It would be impossible to prove that you used random.org to select the winner, unfortunately. Because each entry into your lottery costs 1 BTC, then each entry will have a corresponding transaction ID. That's all you need in order to use Bitlotto's method. Just send the card to the sender of the transaction that wins. Smiley

OK.  How do I know who sent the transaction to me?  I can have several people here claiming that they sent 1 btc from some address to my address once the winning transaction is announced.  How do I solve this?

You'd have the same problem if you used random.org, but thankfully there's a solution. Why don't you give each user a different address to send the BTC to?

I was planning on using a different address for payment for each entrant.

I guess I'm just not really understanding how to run a raffle using the method you are suggesting... spell it out for me please.

I'm just gonna use random.org and so that ppl don't think there's hanky panky, I can video capture my screen when raffle winner is picked by random.org and post it on youtube.  does this satisfy you?

A good point was brought up.  Time limit.

So, the raffle will go on regardless of how many tickets have been bought by exactly 7 days from the time of the first post.
Good luck!  First ticket sold.  It's on.

I was trying to fit it into an 8 year old dell system and i had to clip the bottom off to make it fit into the case.  ended up replacing all my 5830s with 5850s, so don't need this card anymore.
