Two Million Dollars worth of Pixels unveiled, as

The world awaits the unveiling of Alex tew's newest creation, Pixelotto. To be revealed to us sometime later today. (It is 1:10am EST and nothing yet :) )

Located at, it is just what it sounds like, a Lottery. Just as with his first million dollar home page ( where he sold one million (1,000,000) pixels for a dollar each, he plans on doubling the cost per pixel to $2.00 each in hope of selling all 1,000,000 pixels for a cool $2 million. This time, he has added a twist. He's giving $1 million of it away to a lucky participant!

From early rumors, it sounds like this is how it will work.:

Advertisers purchase the pixels as advertising for their website.

Anyone will be able to sign up for a free account, and Tew's site will then be able to track which ads you click on. At the end of the "Game", 1 pixel will be chosen to be the winning pixel, then, if multiple people clicked on the winning pixel, the winner will be randomly chosen from only those that had clicked on that pixel advertisment.

A pixel is very small, advertisments will be sold in 100 pixel groups, which is still small, but clickable. But remember, to our understanding, it is clicking on the correct pixel that wins the lotto, not an ad. So if one ad is made up of the minimum 100 pixels, there are actually 100 chances of winning just from that one advertisment.

Many others think this second knockoff site will fail. Tew, has already raised at least $92,000 in a private pre pixel sale. This pre pixel sale was only offered to those who had purchased pixels from his first pixel site. Pixels will be available to the general public later today.

In Just under 2 weeks, the pixelotto site now has almost 20,000 links to it. It is getting lots of press and sure to get lots of eyeballs on pixels!
