but like my lawyer said... you cant control which sapphires are free and which ones are real life money. so in the eyes of the law, its all real life money and gambling. 
f you still have any doubts or don't like it for some reason, you can continue playing the game without participating in Draws. It's up to you. We have implemented it to diversify gameplay experience and give players another entertainment in our game, along with a chance of winning big rewards. However, each player should decide which aspects of the game make his gaming experience comfortable and positive. 
the only way to continue playing the game and not become a criminal is to not spend money.

To Whom It May Concern: 


1. If a league or group of people find a way to Exploit or cheat the raffle system will there be a fix implemented?


I honestly dont care about the issue if its illegal or legal, I believe thats for lawyers and players who spend lots of money in this game to decide and that is there problem.... but i do care about people cheating the system... are you guys 100% sure the raffel is not being exploited....


why are people allowed to keep buying tickets periodically.... and why do I see the nearly the same people winning over and over.... seems fishy to me


here is an idea: Why is there not a legendary raffle where its like 100,000 tickets that cost like 10 sappires per ticket and ONLY 1 TICKET PER PERSON.


this event or new lotto or w/e you wana call it would of been so much better if it was FAIR, and not just a way for your company to make money off of coiners and the 1%, the rest of the 99% noone cares about.


the idea is good, i personally love to gamble... I go to real Casinos....but with the odds and prizes you guys set up ONLY A FOOL OR A RICH PERSON would fall for such a trap.


this is my opinion

I bet they can't give the name of a single winner, who didn't spend more then 5k in sapphires and won the big prize. Only people with the deep pockets win this type of rigged contest. Then those said players use the winnings to re-enter the contests and win more. That's the flaw in this type of gaming. It also means they rig this types of game system. (sad face)

Anyone can win. But those players who actively participate have higher chances.

I'm in agreement with Ghost's comment. With his logic, the game's rigged. My sapphires are way to precious to spend on said game of chance. Sorry Stormfall, I just don't buy it that regular players who log in all the time have an equal opportunity. I log in all the time and I already saw the flaw with the repeat winners. I think Ghost was dead on with the big spenders nudging us poorer players out of winning anything decent.

What you mean is "those players with fatter wallets".

maybe it means don't buy all your tickets at once, but stagger them over time so that you have a chance of triggering the server over a greater number of sequences.  idk if a random generator would work like that or not.  other than that  if you buy a ticket, you are active.  maybe alyona means, the more tickets you buy the better your chance.  which is self explanatory.

EDIT:  actually, you can only win if you buy a ticket.

edit:  yes i know how to see the current prize.  but no way to look back at what was included after the draw is over.

 the prizes vary.   the express prize is not always the same.   nor the others.   I actually won.  i bought 2 tickets btw.  But when I clicked to claim the prize I was half asleep.  i have no idea what i won lol.   but there were no sapphires .  of that i am sure.

How is RNG supposed to make this game hardcore? Look at other successful games, Blizzard's franchises, FPS, DOTA type games all offer you the opportunity to spend real life money on a set item; not chances at winning.... I understand plarium is a company, but come on, this is so blunty about getting players to spend $$ which will not attract new players

Just want to add....


For Alyona to lock a bunch of threads and gather the discussion into ONE thread, and then the new admin close that one as well with the conclusion of "because we say so its legal.", doesn't make it so.


If Plarium have any reference to law and rule that state this is no clear case of gambling. Please supply it.

The topic was closed because we gave several irrefragable answers regarding this matter.

with the tour of money that there is

many courts could circumvent the law with "virtual currency" (i think 5/10) money money money

the reality of what they say worldwide laws and the terms and ways that Plarium used=gambling


this game for dynamic and mechanical strategy* (*strategy referred to Plarium) is not a strategic game, should be at least prohibited to minors!!!


it's all a deception terms and the only strategy is how intelligently spend your sapphires
