    I would hazard a guess that Flash Lotteries, unannounced lotteries, lotteries posted at odd times, and lotteries lasting different lengths of time are utterly and completely intentional, to provide an opportunity to a wider variety of people to enter and have a chance of winning ... something.

    Personally I like the variety, and sometimes getting a surprise when I click the lottery button. It's ..... unboring. And unlike some, I never crab about freebies. I simply appreciate them and express my gratitude. Some lotteries I will get a chance to enter and perhaps win, and some I will miss. Que sera, sera.

    Yikes, that's even more than I'd thought! xD I'm not sure I wanna do the math cause... yeah, that's a lot of individual lotteries!

    I personally only check the lotteries (on the standard day) in the morning. I have quicktab-style bookmarks and the Lottery page is my LOTRO one. So I go there, see what's available as I'm logging in, and then head straight to the forums. Normally that's it for the day. Some days, though, I come back just to check the forums again, and on the way to the forums I of course see the Lottery page again. I've clearly missed a lot of lotteries, but that doesn't really bother me. Lotteries are fun and random, not something that should be so seriously addictive as lotteries often can be in RL.

    (though I must say I'd luv to win the HD Premium! )

A few, like Yesterday's Hobbit lotteries lasted 2 hours but repeated about every 45 minutes to an hour. So you had multiple lotteries that run up to about midnight.
    Funny that i check a stupid amount of times a day for lottery's and i have not seen any since the helm's deep to this helm's deep lottery?

    Thumbs up Helm's Deep Lottery

    I understand that the winners of Helm's Deep Lotteries will be sent the code via in-game email. Will the winners be notified via regular e-mail or do we need to check every alt after the fact to see if we won? And thanks for the lotteries

    Rather than checking each individual character you can go to the lotteries page and check the previous winners. If you won a lottery it shows up there.
