Just my 2 cents,

EE
A lottery and sweepstakes are VERY different.

With the amount of entries that happens in a HWC sweep stake someone with 20 entries should have MUCH higher chances of getting their named pulled than someone who has only had 2 entries submitted.

Thats like 20:1 odds of winning for the person who is more active but it seems to be the opposite on most of these draws and its 1:20 in favor of the least active posters.

People with less posts should only win by fluke not by chance.
