From 08/24/11, the Prize Draw gives way to a Slot Machine. Never fear, it still works with the same tickets and could really pay off! Rather than rewarding just one player with a very big prize, this time round we've chosen to give everyone a lot more chances to win Clintz (the Jackpot is set at 10,000 Clintz!!).You’ll still receive a free ticket per day when you log onto the site but now they’ll be stockpiled even if you Don’t play them on the same day and can then be played all in one go! Come and experience the thrill of the casino without spending a dime but don't forget the Montanas’tip…
We should ask the great m-bison what he thinks jk but anyway the lotto it gave hope to people with lives that dont play elo so much there starting to look like they play world of Warcraft i think it should offer jackpots the same price as crs in clints and then an idividual prize of 300 clints for Lucky number 2k for 3 Lucky numbers and 10k for 5
Winning 10k jackpot doesn't have "roughly the same odds as winning a CR". There is only 1 CR for millions of players (or the more players play it, the less chances you have to win CR). As for Jackpot, the chance to win it, doesn't depend on the number of players, but on the number of possible combinations :)
I don't like that there is no more CR to win. Not because I think I had any chance of winning one, but because there will be less CRs available when I have enough clintz to buy them, which means the price will be waaay higher...
Its a step forward and back in my opinion. Step forward is that Cr's dont get tossed down the drain by going to low level players who quit the game after a few weeks and theres a better chance of getting rewarded in the lottery. step back has to be that the middle men (aka me) who play the game often enough but arent hardcore enough to challenge the heights of ELO and so getting crs is near on impossible apart from saving up over a long period of time.
Thank you UR. My main complaint about the prize draw was that the free tickets don't stack.
Oh I don't know about Cr cards remaining so high, I suspect Cr cards might be getting capped at a mil soon............
Or recieving some sort of price cap. I suspect that no more free Cr cards means there are less in stock.
(held back Im pretty sure reserve is set for some cards and they have a limit generation policy)
But for those of you charging in the millions and PRICE GOUGING this seems like the beginning of the end.
Perhaps this was put in because Cr cards are going to be reduced and LIMITED in amounts to player.
say 1-3 no I think this is a first step.
Thanks UR staff!!!!!
@asian republic do you not know what inflation is? this is going to cause even more inflation, due to more clintz being on the market and subsequently each clint will have less value
The fact that its something new may WOW most people... Me Personally I dont think it will flop but its not helping either... Its still a gamble rather than a sure thing... Now if its a sure thing gamble then its worth while...
IMO... Keep the prize draw AND add the slots... That way we can play it like true vegas... We have the option of going for the better odds or weaker odds...
Somthin similar to buying packs... each pack has its weakness and its strengths... And the more you put into buying one... the more of a reward you can recieve...
KEEP THE PRIZE DRAW
Let's see how this works.
I want a ticket , I buy a common for 150, 200, 250 clintz; trade it in for lottery ticket, win something and buy more cards.
More cards flying off the shelfs = more expensive cards, how does that help infaltion? It doesn't it creates inflation ,prices are going to go up.
