    Find the new Raffle in the land of Meteora! You can purchase 50 tickets a week, or 75 if you have a Gold Account, and at midnight every Saturday a player will get rich!

    This first week we started the prize pot at 1,000,000 IcePoints!!

    You can exchange these expired tickets for credits in the Raffle Shop (Coming Soon!), and use those credits to purchase prizes.

  2. Sweet! I like where this one is going.
     
  3. Nice feature, its always nice to implement point-sinking/point making features. Good job!
     
  4. The prize pot is nearly 4.5 million IcePoints already...and that's a lot on IcePets.
     
  5. @ClawsClaws how many tickets have been bought?

  7. Reminds me of that thing they had at, I think it was a Haven Holiday, unless they've changed since I went there.
     
  8. Who are some of the richest players? In terms of icepoints they have, not exactly their names if you don't want to release them.
     
  9. Maybe a couple million in pure icepoints? maybe another couple mil worth in pets/items. That would be my estimate.
     
  10. Does the raffle take the points from tickets and add them directly to the jackpot, or does it also take a percentage? Do you plan on always starting with 1 million in the jackpot? I think it would be good, for the economy, to have the game be self-sustaining, in that it doesn't generate money but rather redistributes it.
     
  11. It's only the first raffle that starts with a bang of a million IcePoints. A small percentage of the ticket sales is sink holed, the rest goes to the prize pot.
     
  12. @cpvrcpvr When I was on there, the richest user was quite possibly Montreal, cause he had over 50million and got 15% interest rate in the bank, or something like that when you reached the 50million mark.

    Alternatively guessing, I would say either Nate, Speedie or Trade are up there in the Top 3 richest users.

  13. I don't like to name names publically, but the "few million" guesstimate is far too low. Once you get a feel for the site you will probably get a few for the richer players quickly. And it's morw like in the 10's of millions of iP, and sometimes a few hundreds of million in items range for maybe 5-8 players I would guess
     
  14. Whoever wins this raffle tonight will be one of the top ten richest players on IcePets.
