Oh SHOOT I just reread the scoring, and apparently someone with super long solves doesn't have a good shot of winning $100, so I just spent 20 minutes solving two scrambles for nothing xD
I gave up as soon as I saw someone had a solve 2x fast as my solve with a super easy fake scramble lol
To clarify: I did two solves over the course of 20 minutes, turning suuuper slowly, to intentionally get super long times because I thought one of the $100 prizes was for slow solves :/

No, I meant 1 hour.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Congrats to @CuberStache for winning Prize 2. Please contact me for your voucher.

I will count the scores and do the lottery later this week for the remaining 3 prizes.
More importenly then you thanking others, thank you so very much for hosting this thread and for you generosity with the prizes. We all sincerely appreciate it, and I had a wonderful time participating (despite my bad times) : )

Ok, So now the lottery.

I suggest that someone select 1 coupon from each category. We start with prize 3) then 4) then 5). If someone who already won a prize is selected we draw again.

Anyone is welcome to draw. If two people draw at the same time then whichever post shows here first counts.

I have calculated probability of winning for each particpant for each prize based on the rules from the post 1.

Then I gave each person a number of tickets proportional to their probability of winning a given prize. Ticket might look like "kubesolver, you won a prize 3. Ticket 3/12" or something similar. For example AbsoRuud has 18 tickets for the lottery in prize 3, while deadlolxz has 70.

Then I applied sha1 to each of those tickets and here is a list of those hashes.

When someone selects a hash I reveal who is the winner and everyone can verify that it's the right person by checking the hash. I will publish the list of all tickets after competition if there is a need to.
