Definitely a fantasy game,
this would never happen in real life

I like to enter lotteries. I’m not consistent about it, (nor about anything else for that matter) but whenever I’m logged into myDDO I generally open the lotteries window and enter all of my characters for everything.

I must have inadvertently lucked into entering the right lottery this time. Every character I have on every server won plat. *

* Except two. One of which won a different lottery (crafting ingredients). Only the version of Coin Serf on Cannith appears to have been completely overlooked. How ironic that my one ubiquitous character (there is a version of Coin on every server) who’s very existence is predicated on making plat, is the one that got skipped when free plat was handed out.

The amount is based on level, so my level 4s got 400 plat while my capped characters got 10k. The formula appears to be (25 * (level^2)). But big or little, free money! On nearly every single character I own!

Making it rain plat
Just when you least expect it
Lovely lottery

If it happened to me in real life it would probably be a felony πŸ™‚

All in all, a fun little glitch. Thanks Turbine!

  1. awesome win

  2. Niiiiiice =]

  3. As to RL: I found $3 in the wash. Does that count? πŸ™‚

  4. I just won it on a bunch of my toons too

  5. Not too rain on your parade, but Cordovan says they were “test lotteries”. Still, cool. Unfortunately, me being out of town all week, I missed them all. “IT’S OVER!!”

  6. Yep, pretty much EVERYONE who entered won those. I won (and entered) three, I’m pretty sure Even hit 4-5 – across, as far as we can tell, ALL our characters (I haven’t checked Khyber or Cannith, but the latter is tonight).

  7. It just happened to me again.

    Basically, if you see a lottery named “Silver”, join it!

  8. I logged in all 21 toons yesterday to check, and they all won at LEAST two of the test lotteries. Some of my rarely-played favor farming toons quintupled their financial holdings. πŸ˜€

What do you think?
