Don't use a threshold then, just give each reviewer one ticket in the
lottery for each package reviewed (but make sure nobody gets more than one
prize). Or only give out tickets as above to anybody who did more than
N. Or give out max(0, reviews - N + 1) tickets.

There are many variations possible (give an extra ticket in the lottery to
new reviewers, give extra tickets for reviewing a package that person
hasn't reviewed before, give extra tickets for packages for which that
person is the lone reviewer, ...)
