    I've racked my brains trying to think of a way to do online raffles but not come up with anything great, but i've had an idea for a small raffle so here is an experiment.......

    For Raffle - BRITISHTECHNOLOGY.CO.UK
    Tickets £2 each.

    Payment via paypal to chinaman2@canada.com

    You will then receive a number for each entry from 1 to 49.
    I will post taken numbers in this thread.

    Winning number will be the bonus ball in this saturdays lotto draw 31/01/09
    At least 10 tickets must be sold for raffle to go ahead by 7pm Saturday, otherwise ticket money refunded. Nominet transfer fee covered by me.
    No maximum buy for tickets so you can effectively buy it now!
    If the winning number isn't sold then I will roll the draw over to the following wednesday draw. Existing numbers stand and People can purchase the remaining numbers. This will repeat until won.
    So the odds are even better

    please post or pm if purchasing and please refrain from flaming.

    thanks

    I think Julian might be looking at the potential problem of you not selling all 49 "tickets". What if you sell 48 numbers, but it's the 49th that is the bonus ball?

    If the winning number isn't sold then I will roll the draw over to the following wednesday draw. Existing numbers stand and People can purchase the remaining numbers. This will repeat until won.

    We do but usually the development is paid for by foreign companies or we sell to them!. We're responsible for loads of great inventions.
