I am currently waiting for confirmation on the creation of a new MHO group that will focus on gambling and related things of that nature (Think leisurely things like smoking cigars, drinking fine tea, sitting around in smoking jackets and enjoying life).
One of the things I'd like to offer is a weekly/monthly lotto/raffle that will be split 80/20. Using https://www.randompicker.com to create the drawing and picking the number and making it public will help dispell any collusion claims or problems with running such a service, hopefully. I think to start and fall into the habit we'd start around 10k per ticket, with a maximum of 100 tickets total. This would make the total pot 1 million silvers with 800k going to the winner and 200k going towards the MHO's use. Eventually, we'd also be opening up other gaming options where we would act as the house and be able to provide payouts with games like Roulette to start (Gambling kits) and hopefully working with other MHO/CHE organizations to supplement their games or work with them to develop new ones.
I wanted to get peoples feed back on if this is something they would be interested in buying into, either once or twice or weekly to try and win some silvers. We could do a larger pot once a month, maybe 100k buy in or higher. As of right now, the service would be limited to 100 tickets total, due to the limitations of the website without investing any money into it. If the service picked up and had a major draw we might look into paying for the expansion of that limit. With the 100 ticket total limit, we might even want to limit how many tickets a single person can buy, but I'm not sold on that idea just yet.
Thoughts and feelings?
