The Daily Grind: Do you participate in MMO lotteries or gambling?


Ever since I got back into Final Fantasy XIV, I’ve had to remember to take a daily trip up to the gold saucer to buy my three cactpot lotto tickets (as well as my three big weekly ones). Everyone seems to like playing this version of the lottery, although the one to assign available housing spots seems to raise blood pressure instead excitement.

But that got me thinking about lotteries and other types of in-game gambling — both the ones designed by the devs and the ones that the community creates. I guess they can add some element of unpredictability and elation, if the loot table’s RNG wasn’t already doing that enough.

Do you participate in any forms of gambling or lotteries in MMOs? If so, what are they and have you ever won anything significant?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
