    I had a bit of time. Be warned that it is only tested on Vista 32 bit and XP 32 bit. The program will save your user name after first use but will not save your password.

    Warning: This program is slow! (Not really but it does take awhile to log in.)

    To use the program just unzip it to a folder, double-click the program, enter your myDDO user name and password then click login. You can click column headers to sort it as you like. Also you can select and copy the results to Excel.

    DDO_Lottery_Watcher.zip

    It was written in Visual Basic 2010 so you may need to update your Windows install. It requires the .NET 4.0 runtime from Microsoft.

    A note about security:
    If you are concerned about security of this application then don't use it. I wrote the program and trust my abilities. But you do not know me, my abilities or my intent. Personally I really do not want anyone's login credentials. If someone is concerned and has the skill you can watch what the program does using wireshark or some such to see what the program sends where. I wrote this program for my wife and myself, if anyone else can use it then that's good too.




    EDIT: Looks like the demand has DOS'd my server. New link above.

    I won the haste lottery last night. It seemed to choke when i tried to detach the pots from the mail and I assumed I was unable to get the 5 pots (i forgot to check how many i had prior), but after several attempts, i gave up and the mail was still there. I hit the next favor level and checked the box to clear that message, the lottery message was gone.

    I have another toon that won as well. i will check them tonight to see if this actually worked.

    The program has to be able to log into myDDO to read the page listing what lotteries you won. There was no way around it.

    Last time I checked you can't get at the payment info from myDDO. Otherwise I would delete my card information and only use prepaid cards. The only way that what you said would be possible is if you went insane and used the same user name and password for the myDDO site as the game. In which case you probably need to think about changing your forum password at least as myDDO uses WordPress which has been known to get hacked from time to time.

    An update: I have modified the program to have an offline mode. In this mode you have to paste the page source into a text box and the program will parse the page without needing your login credentials.

    DDO_Lottery_Watcher.zip

    Unless a serious bug appears, I am done modifying this program.

    This needs to be shared with the world!
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    Unhappy

    Now that a month is passed i can be sure about it: the lottery fix has broken my lotteries partecipations!

    It's more than one month that i'm unable to win anything (that could be bad luck, right?), and if i consider that i daily apply and that until march i managed to win, at least, one time per week, i really doubt this is working properly for me.

    But two days again one of my characters win a lottery! Who? "Hakyokusaken" a wizard deleted three months ago (last update 01/21/2011) ! ! !

    Fix the lotteries please! For me too

    ◦To circumvent a bug blocking some players from taking advantage of the DDO Store Free Item giveaway, all items in this May promotion will now cost 1 Turbine Point. This will allow players to participate even if they have less than the base cost of the item!

    mmkay now lets fix the daily ddo lotto then

    Default Issue seems to have returned

    Character Bartold; server Thelanis; never transferred, never reicarnated. Seems to be updating in MyDDO. MyDDO indicates Medium Thin Quiver won; nothing in in-game mail.

    In-game GM response:
    05/21/11 09:34 AM The Lottery system is still in a beta phase, and errors may occur. As a result, we are unable to provide any reimbursement of winnings at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please visit the official forums for more information. - +Krymux+

    Default The Lottery has a bunch of older characters

    Anyone know how often they update the MyDDO list of characters?
    Mine needs a cleaning (characters deleted some time ago).

    Doesn't help they keep winning things....

    Try the greasemonkey scripts by Backley. I replaced the servers with the names of deleted characters and it worked great.

    Smile myddo lottery

    Logging into myddo account to enter lottery and only get the Enter to Win lottory button top left.

    Clicking on the button to enter and get the gray screen titled "current drawings" returned.

    Had a look at doing it in Firefox to see if I could get more info - after 40+ seconds get a HTTP 1.0 500 Internal server error message and it closed the connection

    Been like this for about a month

    I have a second account I just started and the lottery still works on that account so I know its not my PC at fault

    Have tried to remove the Lottery widget but when I go into widget's and hover over it it just says "current drawings" and dont get an option to remove it. I cant even delete my forum account to start again (very short sighted turbine)

    **** update *****

    logged myddo call and they fixed it within 48 hours so very happy about that
