Your definition of half is the smart person's definition of a quarter.

Era Lottery doesn't run on magic - it's necessary to save up money so that larger prizes can be offered in the future. I've already announced the intention to hold a $100,000 lottery.

Era doesn't need any more money pumped into its economy—that's what all the NPC jobs are doing.

What do you guys even expect from us, the most I've developed lately was a drinking problem.

Yes, trash picking brings in way too much money, this is coming from 131 mining level. Trash picking is still better than my mining level.
Also hard as hell to keep minerals at a business because nobody mines any more thanks to it.

-Yes, we're doing that whole offtopic thing again.

So you win 20x the amount you put in and have a 1/80 chance of winning. Most real lotteries have millions of times the reward compared to the $1 you put in and about the same in chance of winning. Old lottery is much better at following this.

The old lottery is currently at $2000, which under normal circumstances you need to wait a week to win.

Meanwhile, Era Lottery offers $40,000 prizes several times a day - and your odds of winning are better than the old lottery.

Well in the old lottery you could buy more than one ticket, also it's 2k because the new lottery was released. It's been 50k or so easily before. I simply compared to real life because the system in real life works and they make lots of profit so it wouldn't necessarily be pumping any money into the economy.
