I am holding a very large lottery with a lot of prizes. All 17 clans are being given out as prizes. Each prize contains all cards in the clan (except crs), and all cards will come already maxxed.
1 Ticket = 2,000 clintz
5 Tickets = 8,500 clintz (1700/ticket)
10 Tickets = 15,000 clintz (1500/ticket)
Each player is allowed to buy a maximum of 30 tickets.
This lottery will remain open until I sell 500 tickets. Send me a card for 50 clintz, and I will send it back for the ticket price + 50 clintz. If you cannot sell, I will sell you a card for ticket price + market value. Numbers will be drawn by an admin or mod once all 500 tickets have been bought. I have asked Force Majeure, but am still waiting on a reply. I will find another mod/admin if I need to.

This will likely increase as I will be including all new cards that come out before the drawing is held.
If your ticket numbers are choosen for more than 2 prizes, you will only be allowed to choose 2 of the clans you have won. Numbers will be then be redrawn for any remaining clans.
The point of lotteries should be that the player running it is still capable of making at least a small profit, while allowing the players entering the lottery to buy in for a decent price, and have good odds at winning. That being said, I will assume everyone buys in increments of 10 (worst case scenario for me) = 750k, potential 160k profit (considering the 5% tax on sales)Any new cards that come out will also be included in the prizes, and will still be somewhat expensive at that time.
Also my first post was too long, but I am also including 1 very good incentive for buying tickets. This lottery will also include 1 Bonus #. The player who buys this ticket will receive the first 9 Leaders, approx. 90k value. (no Vholt). (down to potential profit of 60k worst case before buying new cards) This # has already been choosen, but will not be revealed until all 500 tickets have been bought. I will share this # with the mod that draws the prize numbers, so that noboby accuses me or rigging this number either.
Before buying any of the new cards that will likely come out before this drawing, I could potentially make a profit of about 300k, if everyone only buys single tickets, which is unlikely. If everyone buys in 10's, I will very likely make only a very small profit once I have bought any new cards that come out.
@10 tickets if 500 required = 750 000
@5 tickets if 500 tickets required = 850 000
@1 ticket if 500 tickets required = 1000 000
And a 550k total value of card and a possible profit 200k - 450k
Another point is cards dont always rise on value especially ike those in new blood , after sometime their price gets lower
Maybe this lottery wont works cause cause the prize cards are unrevealed, maybe indicate the prize cards for each clan
A profit like that so big , i dont think players will have interest on this lottery
Anyways goodluck with this one
Money is right, even if tickets all went at 1500 you'd make 200k on this. I personally feel, as I think the UR Staff and Mods feel. Lotteries shouldn't be held solely for the gain of the organizer. If you were going to make 50k or even 100k on a lotto worth 500k, I wouldn't even post, but making a minimum profit of about half the worth of the cards is pretty close to exploitation. Even at the max # of tickets one person can buy (30) only gives a 6% chance to win anything (30/500=.06) which are pretty bad odds when considering the amount of clintz one would have to pay for that chance.
I would advise dropping the ticket price to 1250 or selling many less tickets, otherwise, 500 tickets won't be sold and this will never take place. You haven't outlined anything dealing with possiblity of this not happening. Will you refund clintz? Will entrants just be out of luck?
