How it works:

1) when the player buys a ticket, we hold 2 tickets against that - also for the pool, we take 1 million from the player and 2 million added for our own 2 tickets.
2) All tickets (players + ours) go to the drawpool and the draw is an iteration over 10 rounds.

Round 1)
The tickets can win with a chance of 2%
The full goldpool is split among all tickets. What the player tickets have won, is added to their payouts. What our tickets have won gets purged.
What then is remaining in the goldpool is entering round 2

Round 2)
All Tickets (no matter if already won in round 1 or not) can win with a chance of 4%
The remains (no won gold) from round 1 is split among all tickets. Again what the players have won, is added to their payout. What out tickets have won gets purged.
And again the remaining gold goes to round 3

This procedure is repeated over 10 rounds each with higher 2% higher chance than the previous one. Thus round 10 is played with 20% chance, but an already shrunken pool.
As all tickets are in in every round again, the same ticket can win in more than 1 round.

In a perfect statistical scenario assuming a ticket price of 1 million, a single ticket can win a minimal gold of 381.707 gold (when only winning in the last round) and 7.396.738 gold (when winning in all rounds) or something in between, when winning in some rounds. Of course when you are unlucky, the ticket can also win nothing at all.


How do we draw the jackpot?

1) All winning player-tickets get a unique ID (our own tickets don't play for the jackpot)
2) All winning tickets are shuffled and 100 tickets are drawn with equal chances
3) We take a look at the uppermost ticket of the jackpot stack
4) We shuffle the jackpot stack
5) We take a look again at the uppermost ticket of the jackpot stack. If the ticket is the same again (which will happen precisely with 1% chance, because we have exactly 100 candidates), the ticket wins - and so does the owner of the ticket. We do that 10 times in a game, so the first drawn ticket can win the jackpot with 10% chance. If a ticket wins before those 10 draws are done, the ticket gets removed from the stack, and we continue the same way with the next ticket. So with a very low chance, there can be more than 1 jackpot winners. If the jackpot is won by 2 or more tickets, the gold is equally split among them. Of course even if 2 tickets win, they by chance can be owned by the same player, so that in the end he wins the whole jackpot still.

In essence in a perfect statistical environment, the jackpot is won every 10 games. The chance that exactly your tickets wins, depends on the amount of tickets in the game. More tickets give you a higher chance to become one of the 100 candidates of course, thus giving you a higher chance to win the jackpot.
