At the same time, the 99 people that had their IP "redistributed" to him would collectively be (5/99) times more likely to buy RP, thus balancing the net reward/loss for Riot.

But, if you choose to remain narrow-minded about statistics, I can coutner your crude argument by saying this lottery winner would be more likely to buy skins since he would be more likely to continue playing the game. The point I just made can only be refuted by accepting my original point, so hop off kid.
dude that was a burn. i think the ip reward was high but, dude. BURN

A lottery like this is by definition gambling, and I don't think it belongs in LoL.

I would actually prefer some sort of RP lottery and any account that fulfills a certain "community beneficial" criteria becomes permanently enrolled in. So for example, once you've reached level 10, or reached a certain number of honor points, etc.

And the "lottery" has a low reward but very fast draw rate. So maybe every five minutes, one eligible account is awarded 150 RP. After a year, you'd might be able to buy a 487 RP discounted skin xP

Not the most exciting or worthwhile implementation. But its not gambling, its generous, and more free RP is nice.

i would imagine riot taking a small percentage away. not really so they can get IP but so that they are able to take away IP from the community and decreasing their chances of losing money since there is less IP available to players.

this idea sounds fun.

Pokerstars requires you to be an adult to play

see the similarities? and the issue?
You need time to get that money.
But money controls everything in the world.
Therefore time controls everything in the world.

nah wait I must be wrong since pokemon has slots.

Still encouraging gambling doesn't soon like a good idea.
It's only illegal if it offers real money. Which spending in game currency for a chance to get in game currency, would be legal.

afaik

Why not, most Nintendo games marketed at kids have gambling in them.
