Mechanics and Terms

See Meatsink, below. This is a simple raffle: multiple entries allowed but only one prize per account. When alts/multis and mains both by tickets and win on the same draw Multi Czar has been know to take action. --Djve (talk) 17:39, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Formatting

According to the radio, the Raffle House will be here for quite some time (Riff said that we can consider it "permanent"), and we can expect to see a limited set of prizes. Can this page be reformatted so that, rather than hoping for someone to update "Today's Raffle Prize" every day, it just lists all known prizes, as done on the Bounty hunter hunter's page, but with icons? Along the same vein, if we display the icons for all prizes under "Today's Raffle Prize," can we remove the icons from the "Past Raffle Prizes" section, since that section will be growing indefinitely? --duffield 19:57, 21 June 2006 (CDT)

  • It was only meant to be updated everyday temporarily until we saw the whole prize set. --JRSiebz (|§|) 21:37, 21 June 2006 (CDT)

Relative to Uncle P's Antiques

I don't know if this bears consideration, but since nobody seems to have mentionned it in the wiki: Does anybody think that the similarity between the two Penguin-controlled businesses in town (relative location and external appearance) deserves mention anywhere?

Meatsink

I'd like to point out that the Raffle is probably a meatsink, and a rather good one. After all, it permits arbitrary amounts of meat to be pushed into the contest, but still only rewards a single prize. This means rich players are literally pushing their money down one-way pipes against each other here to win (well... the rich players who choose to participate, of course). It's sort of like clan warfare, except with stuff to wear or put in your display case. --Nifty Nobu 14:30, 28 November 2006 (CST)

  • That's obvious enough - it's as much of a meatsink as the original Penguin Mafia raffles, if not moreso (since it runs every day, rather than only 5 times). --Quietust (t|c) 14:34, 28 November 2006 (CST)

Reopening

Raffle house is back in business. Raffling off first prize of a mutant cactus familiar (must be related to the mutant saguaro) and second prize of plans to build a hammer out of depleted grimacite. The depleted Grimacite hammer will allow you to do some depleted grimacite smithing. So it looks like past depleted Grimacite raffle prizes may be able to be smithed. And hopefully the Grim Grimacite Site will be opened up again for adventuring so we can grab some more depleted Grimacite. --ElectricJello 06:18, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
