The Bitcoin SV (BSV) community is always an exciting place, but it’s maybe a little bit more so lately. Peergame, the BSV game maker, has been running a lottery for a little while now and the jackpot has grown to be a truly impressive 103 BSV.
The Peergame Lottery game, which runs every 100 blocks, or every 16 hours roughly, could pay out close to $12,000 to the lucky winner, at current prices. To buy a ticket in the lottery, it only costs 0.007 BSV from your Money Button wallet, or less than 90 cents. If you don’t like your odds with just one ticket, don’t worry; you can buy as many tickets as you like.
What are the odds of winning? Well, first place is 1/65536, and gets you 85% of the jackpot. But if you don’t manage to snag that big prize, second place carries an equally impressive 15% of the jackpot, worth approximately $1800 right now. Peergame recently noted a second place winner walking away with 13.8 BSV, worth $1656 currently.
Take note though, the jackpot isn’t guaranteed to pay out. Should nobody hit those one in sixty five thousand odds, the jackpot will rollover to the next game, growing in size and temptation.
Fact is though, somebody is going to win this jackpot sooner or later. Even at the long odds that jackpot pays out at, each game is seeing between 4000-8000 tickets sold. Even if the 103 BSV doesn’t get paid out in the next running of the lottery, it will grow and eventually pay out to one lucky BSV fan.
And why not give it a try? It has odds better than any state lottery, where winning is less likely than being hit by lightning. And if a lottery isn’t to your liking or you want a little more immediate satisfaction, Peergame also has turtle races to bet on every three minutes.
So get out there and check out Peergame. As the old saying goes, you have to be in it to win it.
