Lime Day Fundraising Raffle. Win a sleeping animal! (Drawing March 16, 2008)


Logo by Sandiibottom

In order to help spread the limey spirit of Lime Day around the ocean, I will be holding a charity raffle! All poe raised from the raffle will go into Lime Day tournaments for the ocean! For this raffle, there will be 100 tickets for sale. Each ticket will cost 3,000 PoE.

How to enter: There will be 100 units of hemp made available at Jalan’s Distilling stall on Lima Island. Each unit will cost 3000 poe. To enter, simply purchase any amount from this stall that you want. Each unit of hemp purchased counts as 1 "raffle ticket." The name that shows up on the building records is the name that is entered in the raffle. Numbers will be assigned as you purchase your hemp (ex: Pirate A buys the first 5 units of hemp, so the numbers 00, 01, 02, 03, and 04 are all Pirate A's.) In order to be fair to those that don't have a ship or stall on Lima right now, I will only be putting up 50 units of hemp for the first few days. The remaining 50 units of hemp will be sold starting on March 6, 2008.


How the number will be drawn: I will use the public results of the Daily 3 (Evening), which is part of the California State Lottery (numbers can be found here: http://www.calottery.com/WinningNumbers/) The first 2 digits of the Daily 3 (Evening) will be the winning number.

When the number will be drawn: The numbers will be taken from the drawing on March 16, 2008. Remember, the first 2 digits of the Evening Daily 3!

Prizes:
The winning number drawn will get their choice of one of the following:
-Sleeping piglet furniture item
-Sleeping tortoise furniture item
-Sleeping pig furniture item

In addition to these prizes, there will also be prizes given out for different things:
First, to the pirate that purchases the most tickets and doesn’t win the top prize, they will win a lovely lime/lime blackjack! (In the event of a tie, the pirate who was closest to the winning number will win.)
Next, to the pirate that purchases the last unit of hemp, they will win a lovely new lime stein!
Finally, to the pirate that was 1 number below the winning number, they will win a brand new lime horn drinking mug!

And the important disclaimer, but everyone knows that you can trust Stevensam :D

Official disclaimer: Please note that this event, as with any lottery or raffle, is run at the risk of the participants. If there is shown to be cheating or wrongdoing, the culprit will be punished, but no poe will be returned to participants affected. Please only enter if you trust the person or people hosting the event.

This is awesome. ^_^

(If I can make a suggestion for future raffles, though...any way you could procure 100 units of Limes? :P)

I don't think he can sell limes through his stall, but great idea! :)

Just a note for those curious, I will start the list of pirates and what number(s) they have once I have sold the first 50 units of hemp, since I hear you can't edit posts 3 days after you make them.

Thus was my dilema. I could have used my palace on Garden Cradle for the limes, but I figured that GC is quite a ways away from the majority of the piratey population. I figured I'd use Lima because it is in the most populous arch and because it's close to a lot of populated islands.

Re: Lime Day Fundraising Raffle. Win a sleeping animal! (Drawing March 16, 2008)

Well, I just bought the last 9 tickets for today. I can't resist a chance for sleeping pigs...

And I agree, Lima is probably a better choice, more accessible...

Heh I know...the only reason I am not buying all 100 tickets is cuz I wouldn't spend 300k on a sleeping animal.

And I am fully aware of the possibility of not winning even if I bought 90% of the tickets.

Yes, but if you buy 90% of the tickets and don't win, you get that lovely lime/lime blackjack! Technically, if you buy more than 50% of the tickets, you are garunteed to win at least a blackjack.

Blackjack > 150K
/me nods.

Re: Lime Day Fundraising Raffle. Win a sleeping animal! (Drawing March 16, 2008)

Okay, all 100 units of hemp have been sold, which means it's just time to wait for the March 16th drawing. The numbers each pirate has are as follows:

 
00 Guppygurl
01 - 20 Freak
21 Fireangel
22 Bloodworthy
23 & 24 Ivdripper
25 - 34 Livngdedgirl
35 Guppygurl
36 - 40 Cybrpyro
41-49 Fredtheelf
50 Badbetty
51 Limeysmum
52 - 55 Santhiago
56 Limeysmum
57 - 66 Scrapper
67 Jodiee
68 Korg
69 - 73 Bloodworthy
74 & 75 Biscuithead
76 - 79 Bibity
80 - 99 Boggybloo


Which means both Boggybloo and Freak both have 20 tickets each. If one of them wins the grand prize, the other will get the blackjack. If neither win the grand prize, it will go to the tie-breaker for the blackjack.

And the winning number has been drawn! The winner is the pirate holding the number 43, which is Fredtheelf!

In addition, Fred also won the lovely horn drinking mug.
Boggybloo wins the stein.
Freak wins the blackjack, via tie-breaker.
