Q : Do I have to be present at the drawing in the ingame channel BIG Games in order to win?
A : Nope. Taking part in the actual drawing is optional. But please show up, it's good fun :)

Q : Uhm it would be nice with some sort of 'Proof of Registration', can I have that please?
A : Sure thing - Check the Receipts page

Q : How do I register for the free giveaway?
A : Simply send an EVE-mail to the 'BIG Games' character with exact subject "The BIG Lottery".

Q : Can I get more than one ticket per round ?
A : No. You will have one ticket per round and per character.

Q : When is the drawing?
A : The drawing is every second Monday evening at 18:00 (EVE Time). Please check The BIG Lottery link. That page will always have the updated info.

Q : How is the drawing done?
A : The actual drawing of the winning number is done in the ingame channel "BIG Games" at the designated time.
The actual mechanics of the draw is as follows:
On command everyone present in the channel types a number into the channel (at the exact same time).
The number each participant enters, is within a range given shortly before.
The first few (number given shortly before) of the numbers are then first added together.
Then we do a "sum mod(ulus) <number of registered characters>, and we have a winning number

Q : How can I be sure this is not a scam?
A : It's only about sending a mail... it costs you nothing, so it would be a terrible scam!
However, if you mistrust us, dont register.
But I encourage you to ask around if BIG can be trusted or not, I think you will find that the answer is "Yes BIG is very trustworthy".

Q : Thats all very nice but what can I Win!
A : The prize ISK can vary in size, but has for the past many years been in the multi-billions ISK range.
Check the BIG Lottery Winners page to see excactly how much past winners have won.

Q : When will the free giveaway cease to exist ?
A : When I run out of money... Donations in ISK or prizes for in-channel drawings are always welcome!

Good Luck!
