  • I finally got a Bonus Cargo Engine on Ticket 48 of Era 3. I started counting tickets after I got a PAX Bonus Engine on Day 4 of Era 1. It took 325 tickets + how ever many (most likely about 40) I got before I started counting. My internet is down at home. I will post a full accounting of Lotto awards in Era 3 when I get my internet back up at home.

  • Are there any peculiar rules about getting Lotto Tickets from collecting Station Bonuses from corp mates? After I got my Cargo Bonus Engine, I decided to save Lotto Tickets for the next Era. I have gotten Lotto Tickets by other means (daily ticket, watching videos), but I have not gotten a single Lotto Ticket in over 24 hours from Station Bonuses. I have probably collected over 200 Station Bonuses. Is this coincidence?

  • Era 3 evened things out quite a bit. I don't know whether an adjustment was made to drop rate, or I was just unlucky earlier, or I got luck at the end.

  • The update includes the chances to win prizes in the Lotto. The figures given agree pretty much with my experience. According to the posted odds, the expected rate of Gold Return for Gold prizes, alone, is 4G per ticket. If you include the 24 Hour Plus award and factor it as 150G/7, then the expected rate of Gold Return for Lotto tickets increases to between 4.4G and 4.5G per ticket.


    Considering the chances for other prizes, such as Bonus Engines, Instant Upgrade Vouchers, Instant Dispatch Vouchers, etc, then the 5G discount ticket seems a pretty good deal even though it will not, on average, increase your Gold stash.

  • Also, the value of the Lotto Ticket goes up when your Lottery Level increases such that you are eligible for the 40Gold prize. That prize is not, as far as I know, available at the start of the round.

    You'd need to deduct 50 Gold from the Plus account, so through the Lottery it is worth 100 Gold. Because when you purchase Plus Account for 150 Gold you receive 2 Lottery Tickets which costs 50 Gold to purchase outright. :)
