 |  The popular Wheel-Of-Fun lottery is back!                   |
 |                                                              |
 |  The Wheel-Of-Fun will be present from December 16, 00:00:01 |
 |  GT (Game Time) to January 3, 23:59:59 GT. The Wheel-Of-Fun  |
 |  will be located inside the magnificent yule tree just north |
 |  of the Tower of Realms in Sparkle. You get to spin the      |
 |  wheel once each day (it resets at midnight GT) and you can  |
 |  win lots of nice prizes. And it's all completely free       |
 |  thanks to the generous GoG (Gnomes of Genesis) Banking      |
 |  Services. And just like last year, the Wheel-Of-Fun will    |
 |  also be part of a small event.                              |
 |                                                              |

 |                          The Event                           |
 |                                                              |

 |  The Wheel-Of-Fun event is not as big as regular events,     |
 |  but it adds some fun to the spinning, and another reason    |
 |  to return to spin every day. It works like this:            |
 |                                                              |
 |  Apart from winning a nice item each time you spin, you      |
 |  also get awarded points.                                    |
 |                                                              |
 |  0 points for fun prizes, like candy, clothes, etc.          |
 |                                                              |
 |  1 point for nice prizes, for example an ancient mithril     |
 |  chainmail or great black skull, and similar.                |
 |                                                              |
 |  2 points for really awesome prizes like a gigantic          |
 |  steel broadsword or a midnight black platemail.             |
 |                                                              |
 |  Whoever collects the most total points during the event     |
 |  will be declared the luckiest soul in Genesis. Since it's   |
 |  a mini event based purely on luck there will be no          |
 |  experience rewards, but the winner gets a nice title        |
 |  that will last for a year and a special lucky coin that     |
 |  they get to keep for 30 days. What it does? It provides     |
 |  luck of course!                                             |
 |                                                              |
 |  To know the score, simply ask Julio.                        |
 |                                                              |

 |  Due to attempted cheating last year you now have to be      |
 |  18 in order to spin the wheel. 18 hours old that is.        |
 |  If you are under 18 hours old you will have to wait until   |
 |  you are 18 hours or more to spin. Sorry about this, but it  |
 |  is to prevent abuse and cheating. I know right, some        |
 |  people would even cheat in a Yuletide event providing       |
 |  FREE gifts! Shame on them.                                  |
 |                                                              |
 |  Julio can now ban people from spinning the wheel. Reasons   |
 |  you might be banned are:                                    |
 |                                                              |
 |   - Attempting to cheat in this or other events.             |
 |   - Littering. That is, throwing unwanted gifts on the       |
 |     floor instead of in the recycling bin.                   |
 |   - Abusing Julio. That includes, but is not limited to,     |
 |     slapping, kicking, poking, licking, kissing, etc.        |
 |     This will be your only warning. So be nice. It's         |
 |     Yuletide.                                                |
 |                                                              |
 |  The flaming black broadsword that had been temporarily      |
 |  removed from the lottery last year (due to the change to    |
 |  how equipment saves) is now back. However, just like some   |
 |  of the other non-dulling weapons there is a decreased       |
 |  chance of winning it compared to how it was pre-2018.       |
 |                                                              |
 |  The unique reflective shield is no longer part of the       |
 |  Wheel-Of-Fun as it was deemed to powerful.                  |
 |                                                              |

 |  Okay! That's it. If you experience some issues with the     |
 |  lottery, please send a mail to me (Cherek).                 |
 |                                                              |
 |  Cherek, Julio and the AoE team wishes you all a happy       |
 |  Yuletide. May the lottery odds forever be in your favor.    |

So, I accidentally wrote that you need to be 18 days old to spin the wheel this year. That would be nuts! I of course meant 18 HOURS old. Nothing else. I have updated the common board post to reflect this.

Whew! I'm glad it's 18 hours old instead of days! I was bummed that I wouldn't be able to take part of this.

Yeah sorry about that. Spread the word to your friends, it's 18 hours, nothing else!

How is 18 hours going to stop misuse?
Such a character can be made in a single day, and a single person can make one each day..
again using them to log in countless characters to use in the lottery.

I think this is a good compromise that makes harder to cheat, but still allows most real newbies to spin the wheel. They are probably the ones who might benefit the most from winning something cool, so I don't want to exclude them.

Yes, someone can do what you say, but is it really worth the effort and risk? I don't really think the reward is big enough for anyone to bother with trying to "incubate" a bunch of new characters 18 hours at a time. Just playing your main character normally, hunting EQ and/or money to buy EQ is probably much more beneficial anyway. And besides, the risk of getting caught and getting your main deleted is still high as well.

There was some confusion about when the event actually ends, and to clarify things it ends January 3 23:59:59 game time. Game time is the same as CET time. So, for most Europeans it ends just before midnight on Friday, and for North Americans the event will end between 1:59:59 and 5:59:59 pm on Friday depending on where you live. For everyone else, use a time zone converter to figure out when it ends :P
