Abstract

The abstract consist of the following formula, Time (T) as Choice Selection plus Weather (W) as Prediction equals Weather Lottery Winner (WLW), T+W=WLW. The weather is recorded by lottery sponsor, a twenty-four hour log. This log chart will be the reference to determine which player will win. The player most choose the right time which the sponsor draws randomly either manual or computerized. Time as numbers is the equivalent of twenty four as hours of the day. The weather chart will be a logged weather condition recording for each hour. The time as a number drawn will determine the weather number to be use as a match, to win. The player who has selected the right choice of time as a number and has predicted the proper weather match as a number, same as sponsors random drawing pick and weather log match, is the winner.

Description

  • Time, the twenty-four hours in a day are the selection choices. The Weather (temperature, wind chill, wind velocity, humidity, and dew point), are the predictions, per-hour. A log, recording the time (hourly) with matching weather, is conducted by sponsor. From hourly matching weather records, a random drawing of one or more hours by dice or computer, is implemented. This hour matched with weather number, same as drawing, per ticket, wins the game. [0001]
  • Time and Temperature (One of Five Ways to Play) [0002]
  • The Time and Temperature is one of five ways to play the Weather Lottery Game. All games are number (time) selection choice—prediction (temperature) weather forecast games. This game is design to play a number, base on a particular hour, that corresponds with a precise temperature match, to win. If the random drawing picks the hour and the right temperature forecast a player predicts, per ticket, (refer to drawings), the ticket wins. The other four ways to play the Weather Lottery Games are conceptually the same. Time may be used with Dew Point, Wind Chill, Wind velocity, and [0003]
  • Humidity to Play the Game. [0004]
  • Numbers: [0005]
  • Each ticket has up to twenty four hourly, zones of time. Selection choice, each hour followed by a blank spot for temperature (weather). A number between −150 to +150 can be played as a prediction, to win the Weather Lottery number match. The weather number is written or typed in the blank spot across from the hour one chooses to predict the temperature (weather). [0006]
  • Numbers are selected by contestant, base on predicting the weather forecast. The winning number is a time (hour)-temperature (weather), “choice-predicted” game. One or more choices of time (hour)-temperature (weather) per ticket shall be utilized and implemented to play the game, sponsors decision. [0007]
  • Lottery Drawing: [0008]
  • Dice in numbers, up to twenty-four, are put into a container for random pick. Also a series of up to twenty-four numbers, a random-pick computerize program, may be utilized. This is the particular hourly time zones playable. If less than twenty four hours of weather is recorded, less numbers representing time zones (hours), are put into the container or random-pick computerize program. The dice numbers match twenty four hours in a day, the time zones. The numbers (Hours) are labeled on dice shape squares (diagram below illustrates). The sponsor of the game picks out one or more dice numbers (Hours) at random or by random-pick computerize program. This number(s) represents the hour(s) of the day in which lottery players, must have chosen and be matched by predicting temperature (weather) forecast, to win. After betting hours, temperature (weather) is recorded hour by hour, by particular weather instrument, necessary for potential winning time-weather number. The next day will produce winning time-weather number matches, for random-pick. [0009]
  • NOTE: A INCREASE IN TIME ZONE (HOURS) SELECTION, OUT OF TWENTY-FOUR HOURS, WILL INCREASE DIFFICULTIES IN THE ODDS TO WIN. USING ALL TWENTY-FOUR HOURS ON THE TICKET FOR WEATHER RECORDING MAKES ODDS MOST DIFFICULT. [0010]
  • EXAMPLE
  • Starting at 7:00 pm to 7:00 am the next day, a hourly temperature log is recorded. After 7:00 am the day of the drawing, a dice with a number (Hour) is picked out a container or random-pick computerized, to determine matching temperature forecast already logged. The person with the proper time and temperature wins. Each player will register their numbers after 7:00 am and before 7:00 pm, to qualify for the next days drawing Note: Sponsor may choose their own “playing the game time zones”, also game rules and schedule. [0011]
  • Note: “playing the game time zones” means number of hours as dice equal to time (hours) to play, before drawing. [0012]
  • One number per ticket, shall be utilized, unless sponsor wants to change the odds of winning. [0013]
  • NOTE: A NON-DISCLOSED LOCATION FOR WEATHER RECORDING PER STATE, NATION, OR INTERNATIONALLY MAKES ODDS OF WINNING GREATER. HOWEVER A SUGGESTED BOUNDARY TERRITORY, WITHIN ISLAND, STATE, OR NATION IS RECOMMENDED, FOR WEATHER RECORDING. [0014]
  • The following is a description of the numbers utilized as dice; Note: The actual dice shall be equally square in shape and weight. [0015] DICE NOTE: Actual dice will be square, same weight, and size. 1 am 2 am 3 am 4 am 5 am 6 am 7 am 8 am 9 am 10 am 11 am 12 am |1| |2| |3| |4| |5| |6| |7| |8| |9| |10| |11| |12| am am am am am am am am am am am am 1 pm 2 pm 3 pm 4 pm 5 pm 6 pm 7 pm 8 pm |13| |14| |15| |16| |17| |18| |19| |20| pm pm pm pm pm pm pm pm 9 pm 10 pm 11 pm 12 pm |21| |22| |23| |24| pm pm pm pm (SIZE MAY VARY)
  • Forecast Results
  • The forecast results shall be base on weather recorded, up to a twenty-four hour weather log day. A dice number is drawn out a bag (any container with the twenty four dice) or random computerized program.

  • Instructions
  • A step by step procedure for play: [0031]
  • 1. Tickets available (See attached drawings) for betting. On tickets, a hourly time zone to circle, underline or hi-lite, as choice. Across from each time zone (hour), is a blank box for temperature (weather) prediction. Circle, underline, or hi-lite one number (time) coinciding write one prediction number as temperature (weather), per ticket. Time circled, underlined, or hi-lited is a match for each blank box for a written or typed temperature (weather) predicted. [0032]
  • 2. Tickets most be filled out and turn in before a stated time to sponsor, to qualify for the drawing. [0033]
  • 3. A hourly time—temperature (weather) is recorded and logged by lottery sponsor. For every hour a temperature (weather) is recorded within game time zone (hours) as a log. This log will be the bases for ticket entry selection choice and number predictions, from 1:00 am to 12:00 pm, or any sub-set of time. These are the hour selection choices for predicting the temperature (weather). [0034]
  • 4. A next day random pick, out of a hat as dice or random computerized program, time (hourly), as a number, from the hourly time zone recorded, shall decide which temperature (weather) logged, will be the time—temperature (weather) match number, to win. [0035]
  • 5. Time—Temperature, time—humidity, time—dew point, time—wind chill, and time—wind velocity will be five ways to play the games. One or more Weather Lottery Games may be implemented by sponsor. [0036]
