We invite you all to play in our Guild Lottery It is easy to play:

  • Each ticket costs 100,000 credits
  • You can buy as many tickets as you want
  • Deposit your ticket fee into the guild bank before 20:00 GMT on Sunday
  • The prize pot is equally split among 3 winners
  • You don't have to be online to win as all prizes are be sent in the mail
  • You can join our group on the guild ship at the draw time to see the /rolls live
  • Entry into the lottery is only open to players aged 18 or older
The following is for those that want to know how the winners are decided:

  • Open the guild banks Ledger page and sort the current week:
    • First by the "Name" column - A at the top
    • Finally by the "Deposit" column - Most credits at the top
    • Without both sorts the names will be in random sort order and everyone will see different results
  • Screenshot the Ledger page and continue using that instead of the live bank
    • This way tickets bought after the cut-off time don't mess up the draw /roll
  • I make an operations group and invite anybody that wants to see the draw live
  • Count the total number of tickets bought
  • I then do /roll #number-of-tickets three times
  • Then it's just a case of counting the tickets top-to-bottom to find the winners
In the example below you can see that Costii at the top bought 20 tickets so if the /roll was 1-20 he would win. Theogurt also bought 20 tickets so if the /roll was 21-40 he would win. Easy as that!
