Update:  Backpack.tf gave all my winnings to me.

 

OK hi, I don't know if anybody is going to help me out here, or if this is the right forum to post this on, but I lost 100 ref from winning at the lotto on Backpack.tf.

 

 

 

Here is the proof that I won the lotto, with around 40 items originally mine: http://backpack.tf/lotto/view/553c513086e2bc80717e0de3

All in all, I have won the other's items, but only received a few of mine back, out of my 40 deposited items.  The website took roughly 90% of the total items rather than the 5% fee it proposed.

You deposited a large amount of items into a small pot, it's not a big surprise you lost by winning.

But aren't you supposed to get your own items after winning?  (FYI I got some of my items back... 3 out of ~40)

You're not guaranteed to get ALL of your own items back. The site keeps 5% of the pot everytime, so if you bet more than 95% of the pot, you will be losing some value if you win.

I understand that.  However, I bet less than 95% of the pot, and the website took roughly 90% of the winnings from me.

If you enter a lotto and your chance of winning is more than the rake, you will lose more of your own items than win other people's.

Sorry, but what do you mean by "if your chance of winning is more than the rake?"  I've seen others with <90% chances of winning and getting all of their items back & the other's items.

Hmm, I don't know. Looks like the program mucked up when calculating how much it should take from the pot. You should wait for a mod to respond or report the issue via the issue tracker.

OK, thanks for the information
