i  bet you would have sold more without the 20 coin limit.. people will wait until you get like 15 sold to buy..
if you set the raffle for like 3 weeks and people see only a few have been bought then they would jump on it to not miss out.

but the deadline isnt time it is btc.. so people can afford to wait and see what happens.

well. I said a week so I'll keep that promise.  wouldn't be fair to those who bought a ticket already with the time specified.
I thought 20 was a reasonable number. you are right, certainly more can be sold. but 5% chance is pretty good.

here the risk is so damn small and reward is very nice. not your typical gambling payout...

the funny thing i don't get is ppl certainly can afford to spend 1 BTC... but hang on to it like it's the last one.
I mean, given some recent "good" luck on several pools, I bet alot of miners have made an extra BTC in the last few days to a week.

,Good idea, but 17 btc is outrageous, usually when people do raffles like this its for charity, and then it makes sense to bring twice the money in...more power to ya if people buy into this though ^^

17btc?  I'm not sure what you mean...

1 raffle ticket is 1 BTC.  Raffle occurs when either 20 tickets sold or 7 days after the time of first post. whichever comes first.

There's a reason this is in the gambling forum Wink

Unless all the tickets get picked up in the next couple of days, my chances are pretty good too, and poor Canary will end up selling his card for half what it's worth anyway  Tongue

He's also taking the risk of not selling very many tickets at all, and getting LESS BTC than he would have by selling it.  Charity or not, it's his choice to hold a raffle and sell however many tickets he wants, and your choice to buy a ticket or not.

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.
How much longer? Shocked
