Welcome to the Official Mercenaries Lottery!

 

 

 

What is Mercenaries Lottery?

 

 

Mercenaries Lottery is based off the concept of a real life lottery. There's a chance to win a pot of gold - all it takes for you is to buy a ticket, and you're in the game!

 

 

How does this work?

 

 

Everyone gets to buy (a) ticket(s) and gets a chance to win the prize money. The prize sum will depend on the number of participants and how long it has been since anyone has won the prize. 

Ticket money will be sent to the Lotto character, which will become the prize pool and will be used entirely for the purpose of the given lottery. The character will be accessed only by TheGodlyBrit, as he is a known and trustworthy admin.

Winners will be decided by a random list generator.

When you buy a ticket, send the gold to the character Lotto and post in the thread. Specifying how many tickets you bought isn't necessary. There's no limit on how many tickets an individual player can buy. Price for one ticket is 500 gold. 

 

 

What's the catch?

 

There is none. It's a fair and square Lottery to encourage people to spend their gold and keep the community interested.

I don't need any money personally but this would be a good way for me to anonymously give money away by purchasing a ticket :D I'll buy several hehehe

Why?

Don't you always complain about that it's 2 easy to get gold in merc and now you want someone to be able to win loads of gold by just paying 1,000g.

Piss off please. With the doubleposting shit. It's allowed under threads like this.

 

If you want to buy tickets, please send 500g for each to Lotto character.

It's fine, but next time send them to the correct character ;P I'll just transfer the gold over to the other account. The more people who buy tickets the more the jackpot will be.

Me and TheGodlyBrit will take a small percentage of the gold as a prize pool for hosting the lottery.

What's the percentage?

It's going to depend on the amount of the Jackpot. I'd prefer to split the smallest amount possible so the winner can still have around 95% of the winnings.
