A post on Bitcoin Money blog covers how a Bitcoiner discovers that a respectable number of bitcoins that “randomly” appeared in his wallet were the result of having purchased the winning ticket to the monthly BitLotto lottery. Excerpts:
“BitLotto takes a novel approach to running a lottery. One special property of Bitcoin is that it provides a revolutionary accounting concept — triple entry”.
“The algorithm that chooses the winning BitLotto ticket uses the Mega Millions winning numbers and determines the ticket with the closest match based on each ticket’s transaction hash”.
