What is /r/MillionaireMakers?
The subreddit /r/MillionaireMakers has actually been closed for several months now, citing not enough available moderators?to exercise the drawings and the subreddit. Previously,?a monthly drawing thread might be posted and open every day and night. During that time, users would go away a top-level comment (an immediate reply) while in the drawing thread turn out to be entered with the drawing. As soon as the entry period closed, a success is randomly picked by moderators. The payout is entirely dependant upon the honor system and everybody who enters is strongly inspired to donate about $ 1 using Paypal, Google Wallet, or bitcoin for the winner.
A resurgence of /r/MillionaireMakers is expected after this event, and you can now be sure that many people will be combing the other drawing recent results for unclaimed Bitcoin.
