I spent the last night working on an automated raffle system, which you can find here: BitLuck

I'm currently only running it on my local server, so please don't kill it. If it goes down, let me know in IRC (lulzplzkthx) and I'll have it back up as soon as possible. It's beta, so there may still be some bugs to work out. Post here or let me know in IRC.

Basis: You pay 1 BTC for each ticket. Anything after the decimal place is rounded down, so make sure you send the amount you mean to. At 7:30pm EDT, the raffle is run, and the winner will receive 95% of the pot. 5% goes towards getting some actual hosting, etc.

If I could, I would kick-start the pot, but I am broke (0.03 BTC.)

I changed the time to 12:00 AM GMT, and the payout to 95%.

Now as nobody has bought a ticket, I'm wondering if anyone is interested in this at all, what I could change, etc? If nobody is interested, I'll turn the server off to save energy, but would you be interested if there was a larger pot to begin with, etc?

Welcome! No one may have entered because it's seems like an ALMOST copy of BitLotto. BitLotto though, pays 99% of the pot and is TOTALLY transparent in that it's impossible to trick, how many played, who won, and if payment was sent. The other advantage of BitLotto is that it doesn't need a website to run and manage the pot. It's all done within Bitcoin. (I'm a bit biased though!!  Grin) Good luck!

*Next Draw Feb 1*  BitLotto: monthly raffle (0.25 BTC per ticket) Completely transparent and impossible to manipulate who wins. TOR

Ah okay, I'm sorry. It seems like there is no interest anyway, so I'll take mine down. At the very least, it was a good experience to get used to the JSON-RPC API for Bitcoin.

If anyone is interested in the script, either to buy it or for me to open-source it, let me know.

No worries. I would suggest open source! Can I suggest if you have the skills, perhaps look into creating open source software for websites to create bitcoin shopping services. Something that is easy to set up is needed and if it's popular I'm sure you could sell support.

You mean like this? I have a couple other ideas however, and will start working on them...

My only issue with open-sourcing it is I'm not 100% sure that it works perfectly, as I could only do limited testing without any BTC (however, thanks mike for lending me the 2 BTC for testing.)

If people released their code as open-source only when it worked perfectly, there would be no open source projects.  Smiley

Thanks to ye, we have the final piece.

I'm very interested in having a look on your code!
