I would be very interested in the pictures..
My ancient experience with the drysail lottery was that many people, in order to increase the odds, bring friends along, who each enter the lottery. So, what happens is that many of the winning lottery numbers are unclaimed.
The relatively polite people, who play the game this way, stick around even after they have won a spot, and decline any subsequent "winning" numbers they have.
So, if you see way too many people at the lottery, don't fear, I'll bet many of them are duplicates.
