A novel reddit group wants to make a randomly chosen subscriber a millionaire. The subreddit, r/millionairemakers, asks members to agree to donate a dollar each to form a prize pot, with the winner randomly drawn from a lot of all entrants.

The subreddit has made previous attempts to raise and award a million dollars to a redditor, but after eight tries, the highest prize pot accrued was $11,400. The hope is that its popularity – and its egalitarian approach, with no one but the draw winner taking any money – will soar to the point that it can offer prizes closer to seven-figure sums.

To enter, simply post a comment in the latest prize draw thread, by which you will be agreeing to donate a dollar to the winner; effectively, an entry fee. Only users with accounts older than 30 days, and with a history of activity, are eligible. Draws take place every third Friday of the month. at 06:30 EST.

“Remember, this is about generosity, about making history, and about coming together to make someone’s life better,” reads an admin post on MillionaireMakers. “So take 3 minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you’re well off and want to donate a few bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few cents. Every cent counts.”
