Two separate lotteries for each variant?
yea can enter both.

Pray for me.
Curious how the lottos work. Do you use a random number generator or something?
I first go over the spreadsheet and remove any duplicates and anything that looks like a bot.

How do I know something looks like a bot? When there are 12,000 different names that end with the email address .xyz or things like that linked to similar home addresses. One time it seemed like the entire city of Boise entered a lotto.

I then use a random number generator.

Today is a little tough because there are two items so two different spreadsheets. It takes me a little longer to setup at first. What also happens is that people checkout with two items so it isn't a normal single line. They appear on both spreadsheets. If I'm looking for Neenah winners and your name is on that sheet and picked, you win.

So what do I do to increase my odds? Order separately or on the same order? I've obviously already got Boise ready to enter.

I put my name in as Flippy McFlipperson, and if you can just put it on Ebay for me, that would be great.

I placed two separate orders and then hacked the checkout to leave a $20 tip for pizza.

Damn. I was wondering how I could not get at least one with those odds. The whole town was cheering for me.

On a serious note, however unlikely, when there are two or more lotteries running at the same time, will it make your job easier if we entered one per order?
