Lottery....worth it..?!

Hi, im consederind to spend my 5 DB's in lotto, so i wanna know what are the chances getting something good. Please post your resoults in lotto (how often u play, do u use some special methods, anything that could help me )

So, I have 5 DB's = 1075/27 = 39 times in lotto, have to buy 5 more CP's for 40. I'm thinking of splitting the Cp's to 4 chars (I have 2 PC's @ home so im gonna go in lotto with my 4 chars together), I heard when many ppl do one thing the luck increases...
So is this method best to get something good...? I'm not looking for something special, just wanna win some equal or better items of 5 DB's.
Oh, and what's with the time is there some special good-luck times ?
Comon say something... is it worth it...or something...cuz i'm not a DB buyer and if i'll get some serios **** in lotto i'll gues i'll .......... quit.

Thanks.

I have lots of friends who do lotto and buy dbs. I don't lotto, don't buy dbs, market and do quests.

1 year later....

I am full soc and have other non weap soc gears in the +4 to +6 range.

They have +3 to +4 gear and a maybe 1-2 non weapon socs.

Hopefully this will stop you from doing lotto.

If you decide you can afford to lose the dbs, then lotto.

Otherwise don't. You may win something good, but in the long run it's a losing situation.

When lotto first started, I won some worthwhile swag; 2 soc ears...some soc tao stuff....+4 stones...etc...etc...

At a certain point I was way ahead In value of winnings to cp's gambled.

I stopped trying about 5 months ago, when my winnings were the pits. Seems like the prizes won, have cooled down considerably. But in saying that, I saw someone win a soc ring and a soc armour in 2 tries.

Only do lottery if you can afford to lose the dragonballs. If they are all you have, just buy items with them.

200K might not seem like much, but after a few minutes doing the lottery, the most likely scenario is that you'll only have a few class 1-4 moneybags, a few xp pots and balls, the odd penitence ammy, some fruit baskets and disguise ammys, some +1 to +3 stones one or two different ref gems and a raging desire to smash your computer screen.

Alternatively, you could use that 200k to buy stuff in the market to resell and increase it over time. Or you could buy an item you need to help yourself level. It doesn't have to be the absolute best quality item, just reasonably good. Super items are not essential, and end up draining you of additional resources as you level up.

I think the fastest character to level up to rb at the moment is a warrior. They also have slightly cheaper equipment.

Too be honest your probably better off selling the DBs and using the money to invest in marketing (buy low, sell high). If you can leave your computer on 24/7 and always have a market char online.. That is probably the way to go.


You could get really lucky in the lotto... Sometimes it pays off. But a lot of times you won't even break even. For example, every time you win an item that is worth less than an exp ball (or how much they charge for 27cps in gold on your server) then you are losing money. Yesterday I played it three times and won a met, +1 stone and a RRG. And a RRG is worth about 500-800k less than an exp ball/27cps on my server. So I basically lost two exp balls worth of cash from doing the lotto. It is a major gamble, I could have won something great.. But I didn't. ^^

Over time, I've probably spent about 100 db's in lotto... In that time the only things good I won were:

+8 Tao cap
1 soc Tao coat
Class 8 money bag (gone in 1-2 days thanks to upgrading equips)
1 Soc elite necky

Numerous Ref gems
Dozens of Exp pots and balls
A dozen pent ammys - used 1-2, saved 4 and sold the rest for 10-15kk
Countless fruit baskets and disguise ammys...

In all, if your seriously thinking about continuing with CO, level your char with exp balls or sell the db's and level your gear.

Just fyi, if I get a extra db, I might go into lotto once or twice a month, but no more than that... Not even worth it.

Thumbs up My Winnings

I have spent roughly around 80dbs playing the lottery. I started a new character on Pegasus server and luckily made a uni socket coro from upgrading. This happened during the month of May, 2007. Well sold the soc coro for 10dbs cuz it was like a rare socket on a new server =D. I used those 10dbs to lotto.

Here are my winnings from my first lotto experience to now:

Quantity Item
2 1-soc elite tao robe (my first big win)
1 1-soc elite archer coat
1 1-soc elte bracelet
2 1-soc elite bag
1 2-soc elite archer coat (my biggest win)
1 1-soc elite warrior helm
1 1-soc elite boots
1 2-soc elite club
1 2-soc elite sword
1 Elite LongHammer +8
1 Super Attack Ring
1 Super Shield
1 Super Loyal Sword
1 Super Tortoise Gem
1 Class 10 moneybag (300 mil)
6 Praying Stone (small)
Alot Experience Pots, Experience Balls
9-10 Clean Waters
4-5 Black Tulip
1 Dark Wizard
1 Blue Dream

I also won too many penitence amulet, fruit baskets, class 3 moneybag and lower, refine gems and meteors to count

My advice is if you can handle losing 5 dbs then go for lotto. Don't Lotto all at once because I have tried that once and end up losing 4 dbs and the best thing i got out of it was a black tulip. I switch around 5 characters to lotto and I only go in twice and if i dont win anything good from those two tries I go some other time. (Good for me is something that is broadcasted to the whole server and does not include class4 moneybag) I usually play when I see someone go in and play a whole db without winning. In my server I have tons of people that keep goin in till the used up 10 tries within 2minutes. My theory is that if 4-5 people go in and used up 10 times without winning something great then something good is bound to pop up. (Theory works sometimes and fails me poorly at other times) I hope my advice helps you and though 200kk may not get you any socket uber items but it will get you a super item at least and that in my opinion is good enough for a start.

Gambler after all is about taking risks. Some people believe that the odds are always against you, but i happen to be a little too optimistic and believe that I can strike it rich. Lol up to you really.

I've only ever won exp pots, class 2 money bags and some lifefruitbaskets.

so not worth it imo, if you have 200kk then buy some items at a low value (SDG @ low perhappsss?) then sell high
