Default The Hamumu Lottery

(please, before reading moderators/Jamul, if it's bad to have a not-so-much-like-a-lottery lottery, then just lock/delete this thread now. Because I honestly have no idea if it's ok or not. and it's all in fun & games, just so you know.)

Hello Dumb and even Dumber folks, and Welcome to...

The Hamumu Lottery


Here's how you play:

First, I announce that "Lottery[#]" is starting.
I'll give a specified amount of time of sign-ups.
During that time, you may sign up for the lottery.
Basically, Certain lotteries might have 1 yerfbuck admission and some may have 10 yerfbuck admission, just depends.

Anyway, once the signups deadline has come, I ask that you all send me (or a host I'll choose) the admission yerfbucks.
After a day, and not everybody has given me/host admission, I'll/host'll message you up and ask you. After a day, if you haven't responded/said you can't pay, then we'll takeoff you the list.
Once all Admission is payed, Me/host will go to a random-chance machine and select how many ever lottery sign-ups there are. (If 3 people sign-up, then there's 3 lottery sign-ups)
Then, whoever won with the random chance machine will earn the winning prize. (f 3 people sign up, and admission is Y$2, then prize is Y$6)

Okay, let's get started!

(To be a host, you must play at least 1 THL (The Hamumu Lottery) game.)

---
THL Hosting List:
(Bold means in progress, Regular text means regular sign-up, Underline means that slot is saved, Italic means anyone can take that host's spot)
THL#1 - Boneheads1999
THL#2 - Boneheads1999
THL#3 - Boneheads1999

My only issue is trusting a host to not lie about who won.

It'd be better if it were all automated.

I actually posted with the hope that you'd pop up randomly with a new gadget on your site to handle this.
Unless Jamul puts the kibosh on it, which is perhaps less likely to happen if there isn't the risk of the manager lying about the results.



Edit: Also, just to comment on this thing in general: I believe things like this have been tried in the past and shut down, but I personally would like to have something like this. Just something fun to spend our yerfies on, and perhaps get rich in the process; if luck is on our side.
I really want to see this work.

You can trust me, lol.

Anyway yeah what BD said it would be cool to see this stay.

It would also be cool if spacemaniac made a YB lottery gizmo on Wombat or the forums or something. If it was okay with Jamul, that is.

I don't think the host should be allowed to sign up, or it really will fall to trust.

I guess I'll confirm my admission.
But my yerfy will be staying with me for a while. Namely because I don't have time to send it at this moment, or type this explaination, really....

The Hamumu Lottery [#1]: Phase 2

Okay, cool cool. However, The signups deadline is officially 10:19 PM Mountain Time, Today. (9:19 Jamul Time, 11:19 SpaceManiac time) So anyone may sign up until 10:19 PM.

Anyway, now it's phase 2. So, if you signed up, or are going to sign up (before 10:19) then please send me the Y$1 Admission.

The deadline for sending Admissions is 10:19 PM, Tomorrow. (the 28th)

If I don't receive all admissions by the deadline, I'll PM all unpaid contestants, asking them to pay. You'll get a day (24 hours after I send the PM) to respond/send admission. If you say you can't pay, or you just don't respond & don't pay yerfies, then I'll take you off the list.

Anywho, enough of that rules nonsense, Here's the list of sign-ups:

---Do be do be do ba---HAS PAID
---Boneheads1999---HAS PAID
---HappyStickBeaver---HAS PAID
---Gigacat---HAS PAID
---. Blue Dwarf .---HAS PAID
---Redbone---HAS PAID

Head here: http://hamumu.com/searchfolks.php?n=Boneheads1999

And send a message saying whatever, idc, then click the little yellow button with a dollar sign to the right of the message box, and type in "1" in the yerfbuck amount.
Then hit "Send".

That's how you send someone yerfbucks.
