In order to ensure that the operator has no ability to manipulate the event, the winning ticket will determined by the first block generated the day after the final ticket is allocated. A reply will be posted in this thread by Luceo when the ticket is allocated, and the time on that post will be accepted as the time of the last sale. The last two numbers of the block hash will be converted to decimal and divided by two, then rounded down. The winning ticket will be the one whos number corresponds to the answer (00-01 = ticket 00, 02-03 = ticket 01 etc.

Sorry if this has been asked before? So which block exactly will be chosen? The first block after 00:00 o'clock of the day after the last ticket sale in what timezone?

The final ticket has now been sold (assuming payment is received within the next hour).

The first block of Tuesday 26th June (Time Zone: UTC) will determine the winner in around 11 hours.

Thanks for playing and stay tuned, maybe another lottery soon.

Just 4 tickets still awaiting payment.

Edit: Received. It's confirmed, the block after 00.00 UTC on 26th June will determine the winner, who I will announce here and contact for details to make the order with BFL.

If anyone has any suggestions for a second lottery and how to improve it, let me know.

I'm considering increasing the total intake slightly for the next one. I realised Bitcoin price shifting 10% would actually put me into an operating loss with this lottery, and it's moving more quickly than I find comfortable recently (I think it's down about 6% on 36 hours ago).

Could potentially recompensate this by doing a 2nd place draw on the second block, for the difference between the intake and the cost of the Jalapeno, less about 2.5 BTC operating fee. This way if Bitcoin remains stable or increases in value, I don't feel like I'm gouging profit or asking punters to take all the risks.

What do you guys think?

Can you do a lottery for a SC single or mini rig ?

Thanks !

Once a few Jalapeno lotteries run successfully, I'd consider doing one for an SC Single.

I wouldn't feel comfortable doing one for a minirig as I can't cover the prize if I were to somehow lose the BTC. It's also a big jump from asking the community to trust me with 30 BTC to 250 or 5000.

If a person wins,can they get a PM saying they've won.How will the person know they've won after the blockchain has chosen the winner? As the blockchain doesn't say it in plain english (it's just a bunch of numbers).

The winner will get a PM (or IRC query if it's one of the IRC buyers) to say they've won.

I'm very much hoping the winner will post back here with their order number. ^^

The winner is graet.

danieldaniel forgot to divide by 2 and so far has told two people who didn't win that they won (tarrant and aethero)

Graet has been contacted for details and will be on the list for a shiny new ASIC imminently.

First thanks to Luceo,
Along with others I was nervous to put BTC with an unknown person but I figured what the hay its a few 0,25BTCs and a chance to be in the cue cheap

I have found Luceo good to deal with, promptly answering any queries I had in a professional manner.

Just got my confirmation email
