Subj: IRE Lottery

Starting this Sunday at 00:00 GMT, we're running an Iron Realms-wide Credit lottery!

Every Credit purchase (again, starting this Sunday at 00:00 GMT - roughly 26 hours from now) will give you an equivalent number of tickets in the lottery. Iron Elite bonus credits don't count towards this total. If you purchase 500 Credits or more, you'll receive an extra 50% bonus tickets in the lottery.

Then, the following Sunday at 00:00 GMT, there is a 50% chance for a winner to be drawn from the lottery, chosen at random from across all the Iron Realms games. The pot is initially a massive 5,000 Credits! However, if a winner isn't drawn, then all the tickets roll over to the following week and ANOTHER 5,000 Credits are added to the pot. This goes on until a winner is finally picked, and the pot resets.

You can also spend Bound Credits to buy tickets, either for yourself or a friend, at a rate of 1 ticket per Bound Credit.

IRE LOTTERY will show you the current pot, whether the lottery is active (it isn't yet!) and how many tickets you own.

See HELP IRE LOTTERY for the complete details and the syntaxes.
