I think I've found a bug in the Bits Lotto ticketing system.
After purchasing a bunch of tickets (around 100 or so) in the 100 bit lotto, it has started occasionally buying me a 1000 bit ticket instead of the 100 bit ticket I want. As I get more and more 100 bits tickets, the frequency of it getting confused has been increasing.
I've tried this in firefox and ie and observed the same effect.

Thanks for stopping by.
To be frank, our advisory team is considering dropping the "Bits" feature from our site. It is a nice feature, but we are not seeing an overall benefit versus maintaining, upgrading the plug in code base. The code base requires too much modification to meet our user requirements and the add-ons that create more value are encrypted PHP code which we do not run as a site policy, for a variety of reasons.
Recently, we have replace the "user awards for a post" with the "thank you" feature, which is generally better, our users have commented.
Since we have installed this system we have seen little tangible benefit for users, and may drop this from the site in the near future, after receiving forum user comments.
