MonkeyBob has a spectacular aura about
Era Lottery

Hey Era,

I would like to introduce the newest business addition, the Era Lottery. The game is easy to play!

Visit the Era Lottery shop above "unstick me", here you can buy a ticket, which is currently on sale for $500. This ticket provides you the opportunity to win $10,000 with ZERO effort.

It's so easy! What makes Era Lottery even better is that, once all tickets are sold, draws are made IMMEDIATELY. So you can keep coming back to win MORE. Enjoy and play responsibly.

Yes, the lottery business will be flexible to host special lotteries - such as on Christmas day. More lottery games are planned for the future.

That is false.

1/80 (default?) chance of winning a $10000 prize
statistically, you win 125 per ticket. Adding in a cost of 500 per ticket, that comes out to an average of -375 per ticket.

ew. Even by normal gambling odds that's a big loss.

I should stop gambling. I've lost 2.5m on Bet flipping and 500 on this lotto.

Players can only buy one ticket per draw. The big benefit is that the odds are high in comparison to the traditional lottery with a guaranteed prize of $10,000. The major bonus here is that winners are drawn when the tickets sell out or the clock reaches 00:00... no more waiting a week.

Honestly it should be like actual lottery tickets, pick some numbers. If nobody wins the jackpot goes higher. 10k is nothing. Either change the whole lottery or hike up the cost per ticket / jackpot

An important aspect which defines this as a business rather than an automated NPC is that it's possible to tweak the settings of the Era Lottery from the back room. The $10,000 prize is currently for testing - once it's proven successful and earns some money into the safe it will be possible to hold special draws which are higher than usual.
