gambling for little kids, this idea is nice, but seems like it would go against some gambling regulations

Lotteries are by their nature amoral. It's like a tax for people bad at math.

You are implying that Riot would have to make the lottery's odds imbalanced. Obviously since it's IP, the payouts would be equal to the revenue.

Why would you give Riot this idea? Lotteries abuse people lack of knowledge about statistics to make tons of money; a large portion of LoL's player base probably isn't even old enough to POTENTIALLY have had any statistics classes in school yet.

Actually, I don't think Riot would even want to do this. Champions already cost enough that people are going to be encouraged to buy RP to get the champs they want, and they wouldn't want to give users the option of spending small amounts of RP on lottery tickets because having that little bit of RP left over only encourages you to buy more.

I think the entry should be 1000 ip and the draws happen every week? or every other week?

"payouts equal to the revenue"

You poor, poor, naive sap. You just don't understand how gambling works, do you?
