If we put into the raffle the tickets (numbered from 1 to 2490), the ticket numbered 1 and the ticket numbered 2490 would have minor win chances that a middle range ticket. With our solution, every ticket will have 10 random spread entries into the raffle pool, giving equal win changes and keepind the same win probability (1 in 2490).
