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…
No CRs, No prize draw = New rise in CR prices, and consequently CR potencial cards will rise again faster too (Kolos, Gramxxtt, and the whole gang).
Also how th hell will this diminish the currency? Just because people can buy tickets it won't mean they will. Not when you still get free ticks and there are safer (not that slow either) ways to win 10K. Which isn't that much. Also selling cards for tickets to Kate is now useless if 125 clintz can get you 10 ticks.
I always wanted a Manon Cr with only my name on it. Now that the lottery is gone, only top 100 in ELO can help me achieve that goal. Because, let's be real its much easier to get her there than in the almost inexistent super events where 2/3 of the community tries to play and only luck and luck alone allows you to get chosen to participate (if they don't have those stupid "first X players to join will play" clauses), let alone try and win the damn thing.
It stops the lotto allows players the ability to get useful cards or complete their collections.
maybe it should be something along
1 ticket-clintz(from 100-1000)/miss
3 tickets-clintz(300-3000)/card(any and that can mean useless cards)/1/2 misses
5 tickets-many clintz(500-10000)/rare cards/more misses
10 tickets-CRs/multiple misses
i think adding ticket rewards for things like 5wins, winning deathmatchs, 6 or more survivor wins etc(all this should be tested so the market isn't screwed)
hopefully this is a suggestion with merit as i hate the lotto its boring and hopeless.
Hahaha, the people that thought they actually had a chance to win the prize draw... no, this is a step forward.
I'm level 72 and 10,000 clintz is STILL a lot of clintz to me. Winning something on its own is something to be proud of, no matter how little. I look forward to the release of the slot machine.
This change would have been better by making it an addition not substitution. Limit the use of free daily tickets in the lottery to one per day as it has been, but allow stockpiling so that multiples could be used in the "new addition" of the slot machine. Losing the ability to obtain CR's is probably going to hurt this overall.
A missed opportunity... Even if the Prize Draw was to change (and it shouldn't!), it could have been into something better then a 10k Clintz worth of jackpot with roughly the same odds of winning. This change can just leave a bitter aftertaste as we have all seen some newly registered and underdeveloped players got some great CR cards, while the rest of us (around 95%) were empty handed... Everyone should get a chance to own at least one of the great CR's...
