    I agree 100%, these prices are not even close to $2200. Feru hat is 1500-1600 tops, 55kk is easily bought for 330~ and I doubt the xenobot licenses makes up for the missing $270.

    In my opinion a lottery shouldn't be held for you to profit, it should be to give back to the community. I will therefor not be purchasing a ticket at a whopping $12 when the rewards are worth $1900 total spread amongst 200 tickets.

    Good luck anyhow, just my two cents.

    I like the rule about 1 ticket per account, maybe it should even be per computer if possible. The economy of each person shouldn't effect who wins.
    Also more fun the more people that joins the lottery!

    Agreed with this, imagine Amhai to come here and create 199 tickets and win the lottery just because he can afford it..

    Would be quite fantastic if the person that bought that 200th ticket won though
    In your face Amhai!

    XenoBot is a registred business that makes over 5000$ annually on PayPal, which means I have to pay taxes. In particular, I have 34% tax on all XB profits. PayPal also takes a $.77 fee on each transaction. This works out to a total income of:

    200 * (12.00 - .77) * .66 = $1482.36

    This isn't counting tax deductions that can be filed, however. Keep in mind that I just paid $1640 for the hat, and the payment method I used isn't tax deductible. So, if we work out taxes with the assumption that I can only deduct taxes from the gold and world transfer (a total of $360), here is the final result:

    200 * (12.00 - .77) = $2246.00
    (2245 - 360) * .66 + 360 = $1604.1

    So even if you count tax deduction, I am only getting $1600, after putting in $2000. I'm paying money for this lottery, but I'm okay with that because it is for publicity.


    tl;dr; if you want to play math, learn how business accounting works.
