    The Raffle is now live

    Coming in the next patch players will be able to take a chance at winning a selection of 7 houses via the raffle system.

    Players can take a chance on the house of their choice for the prices listed below. Should you hit the jackpot and get a good spin from RNGesus you will be rewarded with a special deed for the property in question. Once someone wins a specific property the raffle for that property will close and that players name will be listed on the raffle tab. (Along with a global celebration announcement).

    We had planned to do the whole sell tickets, and do a drawing thing but time limits have made that a bit to much work in this situation. So given all the factors we think this is a fair way to get these back into player hands. Given that most UO servers would simply slap a massive price tag on these or sell tickets for $$.

    How the process works
    - Selecting to spin the wheel will cost you the listed amount of platinum / gold.
    - The rate for each spin is shown on the raffle menu and is not affected by any other factors. The first spin could be a winner, or it could be the 1583rd.
    - There is no staff involvement in the process. Once we turn it on, it is all automated.
    - Should you be lucky enough to win one of the raffles, you will be provided with a special deed indicating which house you have won.
    - Contact a staff member to have the house transferred to the player of your choice.
    - You may also sell the ticket to another player should you be lucky enough to win.
    - The tickets are blessed should you win a raffle.
    - Players will need to wait 5 seconds between spins.
    - The houses available from the Holiday Coin raffle are listed for reference only. Once the linked house icons change red, they have been won.​

    It is sad to see some lots ... But of course, let them get a better life, instead of a dusty closet.

    Evil Deads fort is LOADED.
    There’s a trump statue in there that I last sold for 15 mil. And that’s just 1 of the many MANY gems inside.

    Most of the valuable items were removed and included in the anniversary prize room, or allowed to decay in other properties. So I believe most of the decor remains, but misc items are already either in the prize room our out in player circulation via the normal decay process.

    We stopped these houses from decaying to restore a bit of balance to the world. So bad deeds of one help improve the economy of platinum, gold and holiday coins.

    The proceeds from the raffle of our staff members houses (Treasureman) removed hundreds of thousands of holiday coins and nearly 50,000 platinum from the economy.

    This will be live as soon as we finish patch 90 (5-7 days from now).

    Once the patch is in, I will announce a public time in this thread as to when the raffle will open.
