I have found this lottery system which seems like a scam. I was wondering if anyone can find a flaw in their system which means they can rig the outcome.

SYSTEM BELOW

Here is how its going to work

In the ingame channel a command will be given, and people should then type a number to the chat.

The number should be larger than the number of sold tickets but less than say 10000.

The first x (x to be announced at the day of the drawing to prdvent any attempt at rigging the draw) numbers in the chat will be added together to a "random number" and then the "counting" begins.

We simply start counting the number of tickets from the top, and when we reach the end of the list we start from the top again, until we reach the "random number".

Who ever has bought that ticket wins.

We will of course use a modulus operation so we dont have to count through the list many times :-)

There's a max of 5000 tickets per char allowed
So in the list you'll see the following two things

1)
2004/05/26 .09:42 - 3,933,554 - 4,000 *
2004/05/26 .09:42 - void* - 1,000

The * indicates that a purchase has been 'broken into two' as due to a previous purchase, only part of this chars purchase is under the 5000 ticket limit
In this case a (new) purchase of 5000 tickets have been made (4000+1000), but as the char has made a previous purchase of 1000 tickets, the last 1000 is void for this round of the lottery

2)
2004/05/25 .16:09 - void - 1,000

No * (as above).
This simply means that the entire purchase is void for this round due to previous purchases of tickets
