Four evenings. Three winners. Time for some “chance” encounters and fantastic prizes.
Volta Labs and Atlantic Lottery will host Atlantic Lottery Hackathon.001: Probability and Randomness from Monday October 3 to Thursday, October 6. This will be a four night free hackathon from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. full of intense hacking, learning and Redbull-drinking.
First prize: $2,000 (!!!)
Second prize: $1250
Third prize: $850
There will also be mini prizes throughout the week and a Hacker’s Choice award!
The Theme: Probability & Randomness
Bonus points to teams that use the theme!
Examples of prize-worthy hacks
A video game with random level generation,
An app that picks a random coordinate and determines the probability of an earthquake in the next 100 years,
A scoring algorithm for random number generators.
Most hackers choose a small team at the beginning of the hackathon to work with. You can also work with multiple teams, or go solo. Pre-arranged teams are also a-okay!

Thursday: Doors open at 5 p.m., hacking from 6 - 8 p.m., pitching from 8 - 9 p.m. and results/after party afterwards!
The week-long hackathon will be judged on presentation, creativity and, of course, the tech made during the event by three judges.
