You can view this data + detailed user purchases through the [raffles menu. A raffle winner will be drawn at 5pm EST. You can view the data upload and drawing @ live.uoforever.com Greetings Citizens of Britannia, The UO Forever Staff Team are happy to announce our next in-game raffle. This raffle will be for a truly unique item: An island! This is no ordinary island either. The Island You will have total control of who can place a house there. Players will be tied to an item which grants them ownership over the item. This item will also be able to bestow the privilege of placing a house on the island for a small period of time. This way, the owner of the island can sell plots of land or grant plots of land (guild town?!). Secondly, the winner of the island will be able to place as many houses as they want on the island. This will bypass the 1 house limit per account. The general shape and size of the island will stay the same. However, we will be willing to spend a bit of time redesigning the statics on it to fit the owners preferences (a wall added, some other decorations). The island is located at 365, 3696. It is the island located in most southwestern part of the following image: You can also sail to the island and have a look around at your leisure. Tickets Tickets for this raffle will be purchasable with both gold and donation coins. The price for each ticket is as follows: Tickets purchasable with gold: 20,000 gold coins. Tickets purchasable with donation coins: 100 donation coins. Type [raffles In game to buy tickets! OR Double click this NPC: The Draw In the past, some players have voiced concerns regarding the transparency of the raffles. For this reason, we have completely rescripted the raffle system to allow for more transparency. At the end of a draw, players will be able to see how many tickets were purchased and who purchased them. We are also going to utilize the services of RandomPicker for large draws (such as this raffle). This will put the actual drawing of the winner in the hands of an impartial third party. We will also provide screenshots of the data that was uploaded to the site and used in the raffle draw. This combined with the ability to see who purchased what tickets in-game will allow interested parties to make sure the data submitted to the 3rd party matches up with the data from the raffle. The raffle will also be streamed on twitch. This means the raffle is totally transparent. All data will be accessible to the players and drawing of the actual winner will be done by a 3rd party and their weighted algorithm. The raffle will start on 15/7/2015 and will end 16/8/2015. Good luck to all who enter! Regards, The Ultima Online: Forever Staff Team **Any trolling in this thread will result in a permanent ban from the forums** Edit Draw will be streamed. Updated island functionality.
