Some eagle-eyed readers may have noticed an advertisement on the corner of my blog for Eve Lotteries. Earlier this month, I had occasion to try out their service. They gave me 10 million isk to play a couple blinks and I ended up walking away with a Brutix Navy Issue and two Hookbills. Not a bad take, all tolled!
Eve Lotteries began in the wake of the Somer Blink shutdown. A real-life web developer, Thorr VonAsgard, was virtually addicted to blinking, and when one of his favorite pastimes was taken away, he decided that instead of complaining, he’d do something about it. Eve Lotteries was born, a site operating in a similar fashion to Somer Blink, but with a far more appropriate and descriptive name. It went live on February 18 of this year.
Fast forward to this month, when Eve Lotteries surpassed two trillion in payouts provided. It’s a huge threshold they've reached very quickly, and they’ve decided to celebrate with a host of giveaways totaling 40 Bil isk, including a supercarrier and 14 separate billion-isk giveaways.
I encourage you to visit Eve Lotteries to get your piece of this prize pool. The celebration ends on August 30!
