So couple of raffles questions?

What guarantee will we have that winners are real?

Will the gambling be independently scrutinised and audited? If so where can we see the results?

Will the inner workings of the gambling mechanic be opened up to the players to ensure transparency and a degree of trust (e.g all entrants to each lottery publicised so it would be possible to contact each entrant and ensure they are a real person. Not saying people will do this all the time but it does at least open the process up to possible auditing).

Lets face it, you have pretty much negative brand equity with most of your long term customers. I don't think we will trust you not to rig this. If you have the morality to even launch this, you have the morality to rig it. 

The temptation for an executive missing their monthly targets to just steal from the lottery to make their numbers and save their job is going to be immense. 

What internal controls have you implemented to ensure to fraud doesn't occur?

Just wait, it will. He will come back with wall of text or biohazard starts removing my posts like he usually do. Btw, Do game developers have to copy-paste codes how it works ? will he feel better even if he have no idea what coding means and how it works? this guy is a clown.

I won't remove your posts unless they violate the Forum rules, in which case I will delete them with glee.

I've recognized a few of the winners and mailed them, apparently at least some of the time it's giving rewards to real people.  Although even if it does give out the stated reward to a real player every time, statistically speaking it's a terrible investment compared to investing the saphs properly (just like real lotteries).
