Just a general warning to those of you who haven't figured it out yet:



I wanted people to buy tickets so it continues to feed the trust fund of isk i am building up. I want this lottery to go on month after month after month for years to come Plain and simple. If you want proof well here it is

As you can see. I am not full of it or running a scam. At the rate I am getting rid of the massive amount of plex I have. I am just going to have the first lottery be for 100B isk.

Prizes will be the following.

Grand Prize: 50B
First Prize: 20B
Second: 10B
Third: 5B

Plus 15 1B isk winners!!!

I am starting ticket sales now till until downtime 20 July.

*Remember Tickets are 5m a piece with a limit of 100 per character. Send the isk transfer to Bopo Ropo

*If you want free tickets spread the word around and have people put your name in the note section of the isk transfer.
You get one free ticket for every one that buys using your name up to a 150. If someone does an insane amount of ticket sales then I may raise it up. However the largest ticket promoter will get a 1B prize.

Anyone with basic image editing software could forge something like that in a matter of minutes. Just sayin’ ... that isn’t really proof.

Welp, it does not bother me in the least. I already have sold a nice amount of tickets and if I only have a few people in the first one to prove myself then so be it. Did not think it would be easy but did not expect to get this much flack for trying to do something nice.

Not going to use Chribba. I think he is a pompous windbag.

Then why not make it free? You’re an IRL multimillionaire now after all. And especially beginners (who could use this the most) don’t have 10 million ISK to spare for a possible scam like this. Not all that nice if you think about it. Becoming stingy already P ?

Congratulations, you've just alienated the entire cluster and pissed me off.

What was an entertaining lie, has now become something entirely different.

Well i really don't like being a liar. If you bothered to read the thread you would see why I did not post with my main.

In other news around 1300 tickets have been sold to 8 different people. If it is all I get for the first lottery I really don't mind. I have enough to run this for at least 6 months and those who buy tickets for the first one can go laughing to the bank.

I'm not interested in your likes and dislikes, especially when your attempts to swindle the EVE community are based on a false premise which in itself is flawed logic.

However, I know you know this already...

Post your main, I want your IG corpse orbitting the EVE Cemetary with the insignia of 'here lies a liar' on the j-can, for the rest of New Eden history.

Shame, you had an interesting bs thread going and people were reading it.

Then you crossed line.

Normally I wouldn't bother, but there's just so many things wrong with this post

1. Having alot of ISK does not prove your honesty (Good scammers tends to get rich)

2. Why hide everything behind a window, if you are trying to provide image proof of PLEX sell orders?

3. You've set solid black background, and 0% opacity on windows. I would do the same thing if I were to edit numbers in a screenshot.
Took me 5 minutes to do this

Now do one with 100% opacity on windows, with a bit of nebulaes and explosions going on in the background, let's put those photoshop skills to the test.

4. No really, why do you think having alot of ISK means the lottery is legit?

I agree, just a lame scammer, like all of em. Sucks when JITA Local pours out into the forums. Your whole thread was just a bag of win and puss guts. I won the lottery so instead of trying to give back to the community, like what most would be doing, I am going to make so stupid lottery of my own and profit of you people in EVE-Online. No wonder you want to use some brand new alt, cause this is the most idiotic scam attempt I have ever heard.

If you where looking for a back story you could have said you used your main and scammed a prominent corp over the period of a year of infiltration, and you do not want to name the corp or your main so you made an alt. Then now you are feeling generous so you are going to make some lottery scam and give out the isk to who wins, cause you dont mind doing that seeing as you didnt have to earn it anyway, like how a lottery works.

anyone who had actually just won that kind of r-l money would not be bothering with an eve lotto. they'd be on a cruise ship right now. notice how the topic of the thread suddenly and totally changed from one thing to another mid-way thru? sorry to say, but i agree that this is nothing more than a scam. It's not elaborate, but it is painfully obvious.

Not sure what country you are from, or what the options are there. But I would put a decent amount into RESP's (Registered Education Savings Plan) for each of you kids if you have not already. It is very high interest and they only get access to it when they go to college/university giving them extra incentive to continue bettering themselves rather than becoming spoiled rich kids living off mom and dad. But i'm sure your wealth management consultant already took care of that.

Blow it all on PLEX, tell the news (Mostly Fox since they make a big deal about it), people will feel pity and you will be paid to be on TV, repeat for infinite $$$

If you are for real OP don't waste your money on suborbital trips like those Virgin Galactic is offering.

Do cool stuff on earth and in 20 - 30 years if you played it smart with your money you could probably score a moon or mars ticket.

Well well. Lets see here. What could an Eve player possibly do if they had the money in RL to do it?

Buy a boat, put 2 machine guns on boat with laser tracking. Ride boat up and down the Somalia coast line using the slow container ships as bait for Somalia pirates, wait for help broadcast from container ship, Pew Pew Somalia Pirates.

Wow. Just wow. and F*k you.
I hear in a few years you can buy a ride on a spacecraft for just 200 thousand dollars. Lucky bastard you are. Also please do me a favor and stop sending money to those charitys.. Please go to the poor part of your city and find a house that looks pretty and knock on the door and just give them money. Please man, my life sucks I don't get to indulge myself on anything but cheezeburgers and video games becuase I can't afford to buy a boat and go sailing the sea, I can't build RC toys, or buy a decent car. I live a painful life working hard doing so much and I am here unable to feed my kids well or let them indulge themselves on whatever they fancy. Please give those people in the ****** ghetto naiborhoods some money ok? will u do this?
