Lotto 253 - Beheading (Closed; Winners Posted)

Postby Voice Aeneas » Mon Feb 02, 2009 7:07 am

Rules:

Only one post per person (not per alt), per week.

Submit your numbers before 02:00am Eastern (02:00 EDT 'gametime') this coming Sunday.

You may post 4 x 4-digit numbers.
Posts containing more than 4 sets of numbers will be void.

Winners may only claim one prize.
If you have multiple winning numbers you must accept the largest of the prizes.

You may win prizes based on how many numbers are correctly matched to the winning number. The numbers must be in the same digit place. Example: 1234 and 1243 have the two common numbers of 1 and 2. But the 3 and 4 are not in the correct place. In the case two numbers match, you will win the Lesser Prize. If three numbers match, you receive the Runner-Up prize. If you're lucky enough to have chosen all four numbers correctly, you will receive the Jackpot!!

Repeat numbers are allowed and all numbers between 0000 and 9999 are acceptable.

Prizes:

You may win vertically on any of the 4 lines.

You may only win horizontally on your first 3 lines (the 4th line is used to create the vertical entries).

You may get the jackpot on a left to right diagonal (but only the jackpot)

Match 4 Left to Right Diagonal (all numbers in correct up or down diagonal placement order) - Total Participants from this week x 1.25 million or trade cash winnings for 70 turns

Match 4 Horizontal (all numbers in correct horizontal placement order - first three lines only) - Total Participants from this week x 1 million or trade cash winnings for 60 turns

Match 4 Vertical (all numbers in correct vertical placement order) - Total Participants from this week x 750,000 or trade cash winnings for 45 turns

Match 3 Horizontal (3 numbers in correct horizontal placement order- first three lines only): $25 million or trade the cash winnings for 40 turns

Match 3 Vertical (3 numbers in correct vertical placement order): $15 million or trade the cash winnings for 30 turns

Match 2 Horizontal (2 numbers in correct horizontal placement order- first three lines only): 30 turns

Match 2 Vertical (2 numbers in correct vertical placement order): 20 turns

Nearly-There Prize (All numbers but not in correct placement order horizontal or vertical - first three horizontal lines only): 25 turns

Three Page Bonus (Thread reaching 3 or more pages of majority entries): 5 turns per page
12 turns will be awarded for 40 posts of majority entries


Trivia questions are worth a maximum of 15 turns, this may vary.





Lotto trivia:
Who was beheaded on February 8th, 1587 (therewith having an anniversary when this lotto closes), where is she buried and why was the one who signed the death warrant displeased when the news of the execution reached her?

The numbers for this week:
1 8 5 6


Winners:

1 - 5 - : zeblamar (Match 2 vertical; 20 turns)
1 - - 6 : Sun Ce (Match 2 vertical; 20 turns)
- - 5 6 : Porckie (Match 2 vertical; 20 turns)

- 8 - 6 : _Nagash_ (Match 2 horizontal; 30 turns)
- 8 - 6 : owly (Match 2 horizontal; 30 turns)



Trivia:
Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded on February 8th, 1587 (3 turns)

Queen Elizabeth was (or acted) displeased when she heard the news of the execution because she claimed that she gave William Davison the signed death warrant with the instructions not to part with it. Davison carried out that sentence before she could change her mind. (4 turns)
OR
The controversy around Mary's death stems from the fact that the sovereignty of a monarch in that period of time was deemed almost holy. Historians argue that Elizabeth wanted to consider the implications of executing Mary for her own sovereignty somewhat longer, but that Davison's speeding up the process prevented that. (4 turns)

She is (re)buried in Westminster abbey (buried at Peterborough Castle first). (3 turns for mention of either)


Correct answers given by:
Gerien (10 turns)
GrimT (10 turns)
MoP (10 turns)
Squidgey (10 turns)
TEVA (10 turns)
_Nagash_ (10 turns)
Blacklock (8 turns, slightly off with 2nd answer)
Torkano (8 turns, slightly off with 2nd question)


Accumulated:
_Nagash_ (40 turns)
Blacklock ('$15 million or trade the cash winnings for 30 turns' + 8 turns)
GrimT (30 turns)
owly (30 turns)
zeblamar (20 turns)
Sun Ce (20 turns)
Porckie (20 turns)
Venus (20 turns)
Gerien (10 turns)
MoP (10 turns)
Squidgey (10 turns)
TEVA (10 turns)
Torkano (8 turns)





Turns can be claimed by PMing me.
