I have an excess amount of 0.00% frozen eggs (I like to collect one o.oo frozen egg of each species but I have an excess of many) and I thought it'd be fun to be an open ended raffle for them. Like a flat rate of like 500g or something and then you randomly get one of the eggs - and they could be anything from stream born to event born to whatever. Does this violate any rules? Anyone have any modification suggestions if they do?

Please and thank you, and Happy Holidays~

Raffles are threads that give away creatures by random chance. The tickets available in a raffle may be limited or unlimited in number. Every ticket must have the same price and the same chance of winning. A raffle has to include an ending time no longer than six month after the raffle has been started that determines when tickets can no longer be bought.

Don't know if that helps any or not - looks like you can't just offer a random egg for a set price - that isn't a raffle? :t-shrug:


It sounds like it would have lots of eggs though. Like, everyone buys a ticket for 500g and every ticket wins an egg, but the egg you get is decided at random. If I'm understanding properly (like an 'everyone is a winner' sort of raffle)

Exactly. Like you will always get something, but it'd be a game to see what you get. You spend 500g, you might get a koi, you might get like a rare creature or something. I wanted to get rid of my extras, cuz some of them are nice and I know a lot of people keep 0.00 frozen eggs, but I didn't wanna do it if it's against the rules or anything...

I think something like that would be within the rules yeah.
All the tickets would have the same price (500g) and have the same chance of winning (since everyone is a winner), and the prizes are decided by chance (idk how, maybe each egg is assigned a number or something), and presumably the ending time would be 'once tickets for all the eggs have been purchased'.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I decided to just put it in the LTS section as a "Pachinko" style game since it's technically not a raffle, and if it's popular I'll turn it into a permanent shop over in Mercado. But I messaged a mod about it asking for advice, so I think I got everything sorted!
