That does make it more difficult.

I think we reached the point of "good enough" long ago. The last big Bitcoin lottery, TAABL, just used a plain block hash, and no one complained about that.

Thanks!
I've decided after all that work to go with your very first suggestion. Hash something to get a secret hash then release a hash of the secret hash. Then use two blocks after 00 and the reveal secret hash to make the final hash for numbers...Thanks.
