Greeting everyone :D

My name is Richie Ritch, and I'm here to announce a brand new gambling site: Risk http://www.eve-risk.com

The site has a casino theme to it and currently has a simple item lottery style game. We hope to launch a couple more games soon (more details under the 'Games' tab).

Full instructions are on the site, but basically you get credit by depositing your ISK to the 'Risk Incorporated' corporation. Once it shows up on your account, you may begin playing.

There's lots of bonus credit to be earned through achievements and referrals. There are also free Lucky Dip lotteries for the chance to win free stuff.

The site is being run 100% legitimately and has already received some nice feedback from the first players. We intend to keep it this way as we believe in the value of a long standing trustworthy experience for all. Please see our 'About' page for further information on that sort of stuff.

Any questions or comments, please feel free to ask here or stop buy our public channel: Risk Incorporated.

Thanks for your time,

Richie.

Faceless alt scam, petitioning to remove anyone calling it a faceless alt scam.

Confirmed, not a scam. I actually PLAYED the games.

Who cares about alts? Like someone can't do good with an alt or only creates them to scam...

The advertisement is real and the site is real. No scamming is involved.

@Katia Kit: You measure his corn by your bushel. (I see you created that 'faceless alt' to post that yesterday LMAO)

I applaud this advert and applaud the initiative. Competition is good for the market.

thumbs up for RISK.

Noticed someone post this in jita local a few days back, was skeptical at first... you know jita...

but i took a risk - being the nature of the game and threw some isk at it. needless to say i wasn't so lucky on the tickets i chose but i did win one thing.

good fun service for anyone with a little extra isk theyd like to risk :)

Given the volume of local spam, I saw this too.

And I won't be depositing.

This character is clearly an alt made for the purpose of running this, with no ties whatsoever to a main. There would be 0 consequence to you to scam - either a cut and run or a crooked operation from the start. There is no transparency to who you are, or how your site chooses "winners"

Further - there's no reason to have hidden your main, unless you were already engaged in disreputable or dishonest activities.

For my isk, I'll stick to EOH and Blink - services run by players who put in the time to earn the trust instilled in them.

+1 and a bump for a nice site and something new for a change.

@Sar'ran Zorn - "services run by players who put in the time to earn the trust instilled in them." So umm.. poopoo'ing a brand new lottery site that can't warp time to when they've been up a while and earned trust accomplishes what?

And saying things like 'this character is clearly an alt' is a straw man argument if I've ever seen one. You are 'clearly' an alt for a competing site.. Obviously.. True Story and all that..

I will say one thing that EvE Risk has over other sites like it, I can choose how many entries are in the lottery that I create, that's pretty interesting and a nice twist IMO..

Well we've had a pretty good first couple of weeks. Almost 200 users now with getting on for 10bil worth of prizes given out. We've had a lot of naysayers calling it a scam, but they are nobodies who have never actually tried the site or bothered to read our help page where we address a lot of the points people pick us up on.

I've heard nothing but good things from people who have actually played on the site (from people who have done both well and perhaps not so well). We've been given some nice pointers for improvement, most of which have been implemented already, including a near complete Russian translation (work in progress as ever!)

In the spirit of trying to show the public that we are legit, I've been in contact with the creator of Random.org where we get our winning numbers generated as each of the lotteries complete. I've asked them if they can provide an audit log of the requests coming from Risk, showing query paths containing lottery ID's so that people can verify that the winning number from each lottery actually did came from their site and wasn't simply made up by ourselves. I've been assured that this is now in development as part of an improved API and will be available soon as part of a premium account deal (our account with them I mean). I really can't wait for this as we genuinely aren't scamming and want to be able to prove it.

I hope people enjoy the site. If you have any comments, feel free to drop me a line in game. We also have a public channel: Risk Incorporated. Please no more trolling comments, I'm putting a lot of effort into trying to prove the legitimacy of the site at the moment. Please read our help page on the site.

There are free tickets up to win a Crow at the moment. As soon as that's gone, I'm going to start putting some ISK back in and give away some free Battleships - no purchase necessary, no obligation. Just come and check the site out and get a free ticket while you take a look round.

Many thanks,

Richie.

Ive been playing on many gambling sites, but honestly, this is one of the better ones ive tried.
Free tickets for constant players, rewards for friend refferals, achievements which win you isk, being able to pick whatever ship you wish to play for...
Here Ive seen friends getting bankrupt, and total strangers getting rich, so I can without a doubt confirm that its not a scam.
As Richie already said, if you have any questions or doubts, join the Risk Incorporated channel and ask whatever you like.

Yeah, I tried this after talking to Ritchie a bit, and was actually hooked. At first, I considered attempting to make isk off of it, then thought better of it. Either way, it's a pretty tight system, as everything is automatic. Reward Claims, Isk deposits... everything! I really did enjoy it, even if I did terrible. For the first few days though... I was on the hall of fame :P

I've tested Richie ritch website to see if payments are made​​, and they do.
He have makes a good concept where items are cheaper one at other gaming sites as Sumer blink for a example.
I contacted him after and came with some tips on how he could optimize gaming platform,
and he is very welcoming to new suggestions.
Do hope the Big Roulette soon open looking forward for that.
So hope there soon are more users there are active. but there is not an easy i know we all start from 0

Recommends you give it a change

And good luck Richie ritch with you great project

Best Regards

I support this service.

I've won some and lost some, but hey with all the isk at my disposal what is gambling but a bit of fun. Seriously though, as the FAQ on eve risk's web site says, it is a very sustainable and profitable model so why would he choose to be anything but trustworthy? Check it out and do some math for yourself.

Simply Put, I support this site.

It is as Legitimate as they come. ive PLAYED games and have Won and Lost isk. Some ask if its a scam, they just need to look a bit more carefully. With this type of work comes alot of attention so this site has to make its own income in one way or another. Especially if it is going to take personnel to continue maintaining and upgrading for its player base. The most obvious income is when you do the math after looking at how the site works

Lets take for example an exhumer Class Ship, The Makinaw. Its total worth on the site is 150,000,000.00 isk. now setting up a ticket system of 10 tickets

Makinaw Payout = 150,000,000.00 is
Supposed Cost per 1 Ticket = 15,000,000.00 is
Actual Cost per 1 Ticket = 18,000,000.00 is
10 Tickets = 180,000,000.00 is

if you multiply that by total amount of tickets the cost, It will reach 180,000,000.00 isk. 30mill cut for the site which is about 17% of what the total cost is of the ship. Of course this goes into various things one can imagine. From Site Maintenance Costs, Continous Support Effort, attaining Ships and Items for the Rewards. this is how the site makes its isk. there would be no reason to screw over its customer when the site will make continous isk from its players the more often they play. The fact remains the same that u only pay a fraction of the price of the ship depending on how many tickets you are buying. This is of course assuming you have bought a winning ticket and won the prize

When picking out your own Risk Play you will notice with the mentioned item you have chosen (Makinaw), the price will tell you that a single ticket in a 10 ticket draw will be 15million isk worth per ticket. When you set it up it will actually show as 18million isk worth per ticket. It doesnt hide the fact that the site will add the percentage as the ones who are handling the isk will in turn have to assure its customers that if they win, and they want that ship that they have to go out there manually into space.. find a damn makinaw for you sorry chumps and then contract it or deliver direct to you for ur winnings should you choose to take the ship and not the isk. that is in itself work.. like those who have to sit in an incursion site and shoot stuff.. like those who have to pick up a mission, run into the mission site, shoot stuff and profit. its all work, so there would be income in one way or another. Especially when admin Attention has to stay on the site and would most likely remain in a station then go and do anything they would really like to do in space

Other then the obviously stated should u be so blinded. My Opinions? Its legit. Does the Site make profit on its own? Yes it does. Why does this site still look like a scam? because obviously you were too dumb to find a way to sit back and profit from building a gambling site of your own

I myself am looking forward to the roulette.

Hey Tonnan here again, i dont see why this would be a scam in most of you guys eyes.

You say its a faceless alt scam but you are posting on this with your own alt cuz you dont want to be known yourself?

Ive invested 300mil so far and i inted to put alot more in because whenever i choose that i want to take an item out that ive won i get it simple as that.

And as Anger Kidd posted why would you make a scam out of something that you can make isk over as long as ppl keep playing here?

Those of you looking for futher reasons why Richie Ritch needs not even consider scaming after reading the above posts are either ignorant or just don't believe anyone is deserving of trustworthiness after your experiences with scams... That's what i would say if i hadn't been the same way... When i was first introduced to Risk by Jade Lockwood (one of the trusted risk admins), it was through a random conversation while i was off missioning. Let me tell you, if there was anyone out there more suspicious then me, they should get a prize! After about 30 mins of wasting her time on me i finally decided to give it a try... So i started small, just a few tickets on my first attempt. Who would have guessed that i would have won? Not me that's for sure, and even then i was suspecting that my winnings would be 'Lost' in transit. Yes i was pretty stupid to have ignored all the posts prior to mine, but I am VERY glad to have given it a try... Because i did infact get my winning, and the winnings after that... I went from not even wanting a free ticket to having won over 200m more then i've spent. I've also lost quite a few but where would the fun be if i kept winning :D (that's what i have to keep telling myself every time i lose >.<)? I haven't tried blink so i can't compare this to it, but i can with all honesty say that i have no complains about the service, or user friendliness of the web page :) I'm sure there will be those who think i'm an alt or was payed off, but guess what kids? I don't care, i'm winning and i'm a happy camper, have fun if you try it and best of luck :)!
