NEWS: Lotto Madness Pendulum

So this week we witnessed the biggest jackpot in Bootleggers history! With a grand total of $439,565,000 and 2,500 gold being awarded to the winning number. A grand total of 1,758,260 tickets were sold. The player who had number 909,206 was the winner and received 80% of the pot and 100% of the gold. So with this massive jackpot for the lottery, what caused it all to start off?

One of our well known community members Nyxxie was the one who managed to engage our community in taking part in this massive pot. She came forth and explained to us that she originally just went to purchase a total of 1,338 tickets herself, but then realised the pot was very minor and to be honest, pathetic. So with that in her mind she decided to take action upon herself and created a topic in the Game Forum to push players to all contribute and set them originally a goal of $100,000,000. With this set in mind she approached KyleKroff and asked that if the community managed to hit the goal if he would of added anything towards the pot himself, which he did. A whopping total of 2,500 gold got added to the pot which obviously encouraged a lot more people to purchase tickets. Within the space of just two days the jackpot rose rapidly, right down to the last minute and even past the announced time for the lottery draw.

For those who were refreshing the page constantly at 5pm Bootleggers time would have noticed that the prize pot was still continuing to grow and there was no draw, this was due to the sheer amount of tickets being purchased that the community had potentially crashed the lottery machine as too many tickets were floating around in the lucky glass ball whilst more were still continuing to be crammed in. The lottery balls capacity were only meant to hold 1,000,000 tickets but with so many it meant we had to resort to putting all the tickets into a bathtub and rustle them around ourselves. The lottery team then blindfolded KyleKroff who then manually had to draw a winner. After he pulled the winning lottery number he then spent a further $1,000 on purchasing a bigger glass ball so that this incident would not happen again. Unless the community managed to overload this new balls capacity.

The winner of the ticket did come forward thankfully but respectfully asked to be kept anonymous. When we spoke to the winner we were informed that he/she purchased around 70,000 tickets in order to try and win the jackpot. The winner had never previously won the bootleggers lottery so it was a first for him/her and sum what of a surprise also. The cash was converted into gold which managed to purchase a total of 10,0000 gold straight away. The winner informed us that it shall be shared back out to the community, only instead of bills it shall be bullets. I then asked the winner of the Bootleggers lottery what he/she would do if it was real money that he/she had won and the response we received had no hesitation to it. We were told that he/she would purchase a fancy boat for his/her best friend and that he/she would put the rest in the bank so he/she could live life like a king/queen. So with the winner remaining anonymous this means people shall have to watch over their shoulders now when making their kills as they may just shoot the wrong person.

In this jackpot there was a total of 30 people who had purchased over 10,000 tickets. One individual even purchased a total of 109,500 tickets but did not manage to take the pot. With this jackpot getting so much publicity in the forums we decided to speak to KyleKroff to give us some of the previous rounds lottery statistics which greatfully he provided to us which are as followed:
