In the Old Pond Pub in-game channel, we're running a sweepstake on the January release date of the Incursion expansion. It's just a bit of fun and you are invited to join in. The pot is currently up to 72 million isk but there's room for plenty more bets.
The basic rules are as follows:
We ran similar competitions for the previous two dates, but both times the prize-pot ended up unclaimed, so we've rolled the prize-pot over again to the January segment and are looking to fill more dates to prevent the same thing from happening.
- One bet per character.
- 1m isk increments per bet.
- Bets may be placed on a single date by multiple characters, but every subsequent bet costs 1m more than the last. For example if Bill has 1m on 15th, it will cost you 2m to bet on the same date.
- The up-to-date bets will be displayed in the OLD POND PUB channel and at the bottom of this post. Please check there before submitting a bet, as your desired date may require a higher stake than the initial 1m.
- Bets should be sent to Seismic Stan with date choice in wallet 'reason' or in a mail.
- CCP's official announcement of a January release date will close betting.
- The prize pot will be divided equally amongst the winners.
Come and have a punt. There's plenty of unclaimed dates left and I don't really want to have to organise another competition to get rid of the cash.
