What is ZerpLotto?
ZerpLotto is an open-source lottery game that distributes XRP prizes. XRP is the digital asset native to the XRP Ledger, a decentralized cryptographic ledger (commonly called Blockchain).
ZerpLotto constantly monitorizes some XRP accounts and all the transactions sent to them. When you send XRP to one of these accounts, you are anonymously buying your participation ticket to one of the games. Once several people have sent enough XRP in order to fullfill the prize, or a special date is reached (depending on the game), ZerpLotto will automatically select the winner among the participants and send him/her the prize. At the same time, a 9% of the prizes will be donated to a charity.
Note: for security reasons, this website is hosted in a machine completely disconnected from the lottery software.
Fees and charity
For every participating deposit, a 1% platform fee and a 9% charity fee will be subtracted. The charity fee will be automatically sent to a charity randomly selected from the supported list. The remaining 90% will be processed as the actual participation.
For a charity to be supported in ZerpLotto, it is required that they support XRP donations. Currently, the supported charities are:

ZerpLotto Classic is a raffle-like game. When you send XRP to this game's account, you are anonymously buying your participation to the raffle. Once several people have sent enough XRP in order to fullfill the prize, ZerpLotto will automatically select a winner among the participants and send him/her the prize. Your chances to win are proportional to your participation amount. A 9% of the prize will be donated to a charity.
Currently, only 100 XRP prizes are being issued. After some prizes are distributed, we will add 500 XRP, 1000 XRP or even bigger prizes to ZerpLotto Classic.
To play, just send your XRP participation deposit to the address shown below. The deposit will be processed, the fees subtracted and, if you are the winner when the prize is distributed, it will be sent to your address.
Your chances to win are proportional to your deposit amount, i.e., if you deposit 2 XRP for the 100 XRP prize, you have a 2% chance of winning.
When different prizes are open (100 XRP, 500 XRP...), you can select which prize are you participating in by specifying a destination tag when making your deposit. The destination tag 100 means you want to participate in the 100 XRP prize (check the available prizes above). If you don't provide a destination tag or your wallet app sets it to 0, the highest value available prize will be selected for you. Please carefully set your destination tag as some tags are reserved (i.e, tag 1) and may result in your deposit not being processed.
It's important that you send your deposits from an actual XRP account under your control, not from an exchange or similar service. Exchanges usually rotate addresses and/or require destination tags to identify their clients, so sending from them may result in the prize not reaching your account and you having to deal with the exchange support team. You can create a software wallet using Toast Wallet! or buy a hardware wallet like Ledger wallet in order to participate.
To keep things fun, there is a max participation per deposit equals to the 5% of the prize value. If you surpase this threshold, the exceeding amount will be returned. You can send as many deposits as you like, but please bear in mind this is a game created for fun purposes only. Play responsibly.
Prizes are automatically distributed when the prize value is fullfilled with participations. Once a prize is distributed, another prize is started.
Every prize, fee, assotiated donation and participating transactions can be checked on Twitter.
