Here is how this new lotto will work.
If you are a newbie1
and you make a comment in this thread, even if it is just to say "thanks" or "hello", include a bitcoin address in the main
area of the post, or explicitly point to it in your signature ( don't PM me or make me search for it ), and I will number it and add it to a database. If you don't have a Bitcoin address yet, one of the best ways to get one - in terms of ease of use and safety - is to go here: https://blockchain.info/wallet
Every time I do my check on these free bitcoin sites ( usually daily ) I will use a random number generator to pick one entry from that
database and use that address in the check of the sites for that particular day2
Your address will stay in the database and have a chance of being chosen in every draw ( usually daily ).
One address per account please. I will reply to your post to confirm that I have added it to the database.Update
Now that the newbie lotto is six months old the number of total entries will be capped at 900 ( it is just a little above that now, so I will make that the cap instead of 1000 as I was considering before ). Also watch for bonus draws from time to time. See more about that here. Make sure to submit an address that you will not be using in your own daily check of these sites or else it may be rejected by
That means that for every new entry, from now on, the oldest entry in the db will be removed. That will also mean that once you enter the lotto you should be in the database and eligible to win everyday ( even if you have won already you will stay in the db ) for at least six months ( depending on how many people enter. The number of entries seems to be slowing down so one will probably be in the db for longer than six months ).
many of these sites, if you happen to win, since most of these sites don't allow the same address to be submitted more than
once on the same day.
Here is the contents of the db so far ( This is an example of how it looks right now. I won't come back to this post to update this list
but just update the database itself ):

If you aren't on that list and feel you should be I hope you will know how to get added.
If you are on the list and would like to be removed just let me know in this thread or by PM.
Any questions or suggestions?
I will try not to be too strict in the definition of "newbie"... I hope something like common sense will prevail and someone who has been here
for months and posted hundreds of times will understand the spirit of this as being to welcome and help out new members of the community,
and so will not apply.2
I won't use the chosen address in hourly checks of sites that give out BTC hourly. Just one check per site and if the site happens to be
down or rejects the address for any reason that will just be that address owner's bad luck... next time that address gets chosen, and there
is a good chance of that with so few entries so far, you may have better luck. Also some sites give out MTGox codes or require sign-ups or
downloads etc... I won't use the chosen address for sites like that. Also I won't be able to use the chosen address on sites that require
multiple submissions on multiple occasions before a payout is sent ( e.g. sites that use coinbox.me ). This contest may change or be discontinued at any time. I will try to announce ahead of time if something like that happens.
