Cactpot is a lottery system introduced in patch 2.51 as part of the Gold Saucer. Players will be able to enter into mini cactpot (daily) and jumbo cactpot (weekly) to win Manderville Gold Saucer Points.
- Each character can only enter once per entry period.
Players must complete the level 15 quests Scratch It Rich and Hitting the Cactpot. Players can start the Hitting the Cactpot by talking to Jumbo Cactpot Broker in Gold Saucer (X:8, Y:5). Players can start the Scratch It Rich by talking to Mini Cactpot Broker in Gold Saucer (X:5, Y:6). Players must have previously completed It Could Happen to You.
The Mini Cactpot is a daily lottery you can participate in 3 times per earth day (resets every day at 10 AM EST / 7 AM PST / 8 AM PDT). Each ticket costs 10 MGP. Similar to a scratch-off lottery ticket, you'll reveal numbers, and depending on the sum of the numbers the rewards you can obtain will differ.
How to Play
1. Select Numbers
Every ticket has nine spaces with each numbered randomly from one to nine. At the start, however, eight of these nine spaces will be hidden. To begin, select three numbers from the eight hidden on your ticket.
2. Select a Line
Next, select one of eight lines─vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. When selecting a line, the sum of the three numbers in that line will determine the amount of MGP you receive.
3. Receive a Prize
After you have selected a line, all the numbers are uncovered, and you will receive MGP based on the sum of the line you chose.
The Jumbo Cactpot is a weekly lottery that you can participate in once every earth week by purchasing a ticket with four numbers you select (each digit is between 0 - 9). You purchase this ticket with 100 Manderville Gold Saucer points, and each week there will be a drawing that takes place in the Manderville Gold Saucer. The more tickets Gold Saucer sells, the bigger the prize will be.
When the winning number is drawn, in order from the last digit to the first, the more matching numbers you have, the greater the prize you'll receive. You win the maximum prize if you get all four numbers. You have up to one week to pick up the prize. There will also be an Early Bird Bonus if you exchange your winning ticket within one hour of the drawing. The exact amounts of the prizes depend on the number of tickets sold server-wide.
