    As promised in honor of my 25th Silent Auction on Atlantic In Zento I am happy to announce two games to win gold just from bidding in the Atlantic Silent Auction in Zento. Any player has the potential to win up to 375 million gold towards the purchase of any auction item displayed this week. All you have to do to win is bid correctly on any lot up for auction this week mentioned in this post here:

    http://stratics.com/community/threa...ento-ends-october-12th-at-7-00-pm-est.306008/

    GAME RULES & REQUIREMENTS

    In order to win, every bid must include proper contact information in the form of either your prominent stratics name, ICQ number, or facebook address. Bids must be made in 1 million bid increments. Duplicate bids, and erroneous bids will be deleted. If in the selection process a potential winner does not adhere to the auction rules or supply the required information, their winnings are forfeit and no winner will be declared for that game. All qualified winners will be given a gold prize towards the purchase of their auction winnings this week only. There will be no credit given for future winnings. If you win 100m credit, but only won a lot on a 50m bid, you forfeit the rest of your total 50m in winnings.

    GAME 1 - Guess How Much?

    In this game the bidder who can submit their best guess without going over this week's auction winning total at the end of the week will win 125m Credit towards the purchase of your auction winnings. If you can guess the EXACT total you will win 200m Credit. Please post your best guess here in this thread, or ICQ me your guess by 11:59 PM EST Friday October 11th, and which lot number you bid on correctly, so I can verify your participation. (ICQ Entries will have their guess, name, and lot bidded on posted here by me. Only 1 guess per valid bidder, not per bid.

    Example:

    September 28th's auction total was 6338 Million Gold. If someone guessed 6000 Million, another guessed 6500 million, and another guessed 5000 million. The player who guessed 6000 million would be the declared winner, and win 125m credit. Had a player guessed 6338m they woud win 200m credit.

    GAME 1 RESULTS

    Congrats to Kolka aka Karek for winning GUESS HOW MUCH

    Total was 4236 Million He guessed 4230m, was within 6m of an exact guess. He Saved 125m off his winnings

    GAME 2 - Every Bidder Is A Potential Winner

    Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, when you participate at the Silent Auction House in Zento on Atlantic, your bid can win gold towards purchasing your winnings. The more you bid, the greater your chance to win. All you have to do to win is bid, its that simple.

    Winner will be determined by rolling the dice in game at 6pm EST on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. First roll determines which Lot's bidders can be chosen. Second roll determines which bidder in that lot wins. High rolls will be adjusted by the consecutive order of bidders.

    Example

    I roll the dice twice, and multiply the numbers, if the total equals 54, this means Lot 6 is chosen. I roll the dice again, it comes up bidder 12, if there are only 8 Bids, bidder number 4 wins

    GAME 2 RESULTS

    Thursday's Winner Gets 25m - Heavenly Sin
    Friday's Winner Gets 50m - Pickaxe Pete
    Saturday's Winner Gets 100m - Stelly

    Thursday's Winner Was

    Lot 1 (rolled a 25) - There were 7 Bidders for that Lot. I rolled an 8 making Heavenly Sin the winner.

    Congratulations to Heavenly Sin! They just won 25m gold credit towards purchasing anything in this auction ending Saturday at 7pm EST

    Friday's Winner Was

    Lot 23 (used random.org) - There were 8 Bidders for that Lot. I used random.org, and the winner was the 6th bidder aka Pickaxe Pete

    Congratulations to Pickaxe Pete! He just won 50m gold credit towards purchasing anything in this auction ending Saturday at 7pm EST

    Saturday's Winner Was

    Lot 4 (used random.org) - There were 15 Bidders for that Lot. I used random.org, and the winner was the 11th bidder aka Stelly

    Congratulations to Stelly! She just won 100m gold credit towards purchasing anything in this auction ending Saturday at 7pm EST

    Please feel free to comment or message me your questions. Good Luck to all my bidders, and thank you very much participating!
