Transparent lotto accepts entries in lightning payments and the payout is in bitcoin.
It is transparent because all funds in can be viewed with lightning node logs, and all payments out can be viewed with bitcoin addresses.
Draw and Payout
Every Saturday the results are taken from https://mylotto.co.nz/results.
Each week, all entry money is paid out to the winners and running costs.
Division 1 = 80%
Division 2 = 15%
House = 5%
Plus the Jackpot prize:
Match 6 numbers and you will receive 0.1 BTC (if there are 2 winners, each will 0.05 BTC)
Match 5 numbers and you will receive 0.01 BTC (if there are 2 winners, each will 0.005 BTC)
How to play
Choose 7 numbers between 1 and 40 inclusive (6 draw numbers plus a bonus number). Enter a bitcoin address for payout and pay the lightning invoice.
Division 1 is the entry that has most correct numbers out of 6.
If 2 entrants have an equal amount of Division 1 correct numbers out of 6, the entry with the bonus number closest to the draw bonus number wins.
If 2 entrants have an equal amount of Division 1 correct numbers out of 6, and equally closest to the bonus number they will receive half of the payout each.
Example winning entry
Draw Numbers: 39 11 28 13 21 19 bonus number 09
Entry 1 Numbers: 39 11 27 13 21 19 bonus number 38
Entry 2 Numbers: 39 09 28 13 21 19 bonus number 07
In this case Entry 1 and Entry 2 have 5 matching numbers out of 6.
Entry 2 wins Division 1 as their bonus number of 07 is closest to the draw bonus number of 09.
Entry 1 wins Division 2.
Entrants pay the minimal lightning network fees. The House pays bitcoin fees for payout.
