A new round always start at 00:00 EVE-time between sunday and monday.

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 excact 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 modulus <number of registered characters>, and we have a winning number

Q : How can I be sure this is not a scam?
A : You cant - simple as that. Either you trust us or you dont.
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 varies in size, but has always been in the multi-millions.
