    The prize pot is nearly 4.5 million IcePoints already...and that's a lot on IcePets.

    Reminds me of that thing they had at, I think it was a Haven Holiday, unless they've changed since I went there.

    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.

    Maybe a couple million in pure icepoints? maybe another couple mil worth in pets/items. That would be my estimate.

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    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

    Whoever wins this raffle tonight will be one of the top ten richest players on IcePets.
