A weekly in game lottery, pay 1000 gold in game and have a chance at a huge pile of gold. Yay or ney?

An example of cash rewards can be;
1-50%
2-20%
3-10%
4-10 - Rouhly 3% each (split the remainder equally)
This is just an example, I'm sure it can be done better.

Do you think this would be a cool idea? For a measly fee of 1000 gold with the chance of making a lot of gold.

Only 1 ticket per person/account/ or character.

I'm sure people will say its lore breaking etc. But there's many lore breaking things in this game. You could maybe pass it off as a Sheogorath mad game, or maybe another daedric prince?

Thoughts?

    Cool idea, though if it was run by Uncle Sheo, you might end up with only a fishy stick.

    I'm not rich, I just don't like lotteries :T
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    I see the merit behind this, though I don't know if you are aware that raffles are already a common occurrence in large trading guilds. I fail to see much difference between your idea and what already takes place.

    Are you implying zenimax should make an in game lottery for a huge cashout to some random few people? That's what guild raffles are for, I see no reason why you would put this in the game.

    I've won at least four times and no, I'm not a guild officer of the guilds I've won in.

    As has been pointed out, there currently is a player-run system in place for people who wish to participate.

    Yeah... The same people tend to win prizes quite a bit. They also just happen to be the same people who donate items to the guild auctions, who bid on the guild auctions, who donate a ton of gold to the guild bank... It can't just be that they put in so many more raffle tickets than other users that their name comes up so often. /s

    Gotta play to win. Other than that it's RNG.

    Yes guild lotteries but many casuals are not in guilds.

    Imagine 10,000 people entered the lottery, the winner would get 50% of 10,000x1000 = 5 million gold.

    No guild lottery/scam/raffle can compete with that.

    Some guilds do this. I think the game really needs gambling in Inns and races etc loads of stuff like that.

    Not all of them. They can be run in a manner that makes it transparent and honest.

    I participate in one, and I am sure there are others.

    Lotteries......wheel spins....surveys....whatever. They should do something. I played BNS for awhile and it was nice to be able to get a couple of spins everyday and get some items. Even a small chance you'll land on a really nice item.

    There should be a weekly survey where ZoS could better find out issues and get a better idea about what the player base wants as opposed to just a few people (comparatively speaking) on the forums.

    Heck, even if they just put a gambling spot in one of the major hubs where you get 2 or 3 spins a day with chances to win mats and stuff that would be cool. Anyone remember the frog race? Not sure if it's still there but imagine players could place high stake bets on frogs or guar racing. Eh, that would never happen....But weekly surveys and some sort of spin to win is easy enough to do.
