Try Your Luck in Eberron!
Welcome to the DDO Lottery!
From the earliest of times, games of chance have been a source of amusement and reward. Skill and determination are often required to advance in the life of a character in DDO. Now it’s possible to get an in-game perk for each of your characters just by playing in the new DDO Lottery! Like all of my.DDO.com, this feature is launching in beta. We’d love to hear your feedback as we tune and improve the system.
Ready to play? Here’s how it works:
- Log into my.DDO.com with your community login. (Remember you can open My.DDO in game using Ctrl-M!)
- Look for the Lottery Widget (in the lefthand column by default).
- If you are eligible for any current drawings, you may click on one to enter.
That’s it! Select any drawings your character is eligible for and then check back when the drawing is complete to see if you won. Have a lot of characters? You may find it simpler to start at one of your character pages and enter drawings there.
What Can I Win? Where Does it Go?
The DDO Lottery is for characters, not players. Each drawing can have a different prize. Some drawings will be random; others will grant specific rewards based on a character’s class, race, level, etc. Entries are limited to one per character per drawing. Prizes are in-game items only, have no cash value, and are dispensed at Turbine’s sole discretion. Everyone who plays DDO on the North American service with a character that’s accessible via my.DDO.com is able to play and win!
Thanks for Playing!
We hope you enjoy the DDO Lottery. Please visit the my.ddo.com Feedback forum to let us know what you think about the system.
Frequently Asked Questions
My character doesn’t show up on my.DDO.com. Can I still play?
Not with that character, but you may use (or even create) another character to play the Lottery with if you choose. We are aware that some players do not correctly appear in my.DDO.com and have an update in the works that should resolve the issue for the majority of players impacted.
How do I know if I won?
Check your in-game mail, or visit my.DDO.com the next day to see if you won!
Are the prizes bound to character?
Some prizes are bound and some are not. Remember that bound items can't be traded between characters. Be sure that you only enter a character into a bound-prize lottery if that particular character can use the item. If a lottery contains any bound prizes, the following note will appear in the lottery description: Bound prizes.
Why did you do this?
The web team is constantly looking for fun and useful things to add to our sites so that players have something to do when they (gasp!) can’t play. Plus, as players, we think it’s pretty fun to win stuff.
Where do I report bugs / send kudos / provide destructive criticism / conflate web development with game development?
For now, we’d appreciate it if discussions of this type were in the website feedback forum. Thanks!
If your character is affected by any of the following conditions, they will generally not receive lottery prizes due to an error in the lottery system:
- Characters who have transferred servers
- Characters imported from the former Codemasters service
- Characters who have True Reincarnated multiple times
- Characters with the same name as a previously deleted character on the same account and server
Characters who aren't updating properly
If your character's information isn't displaying properly on MyDDO, that character is very likely to not work properly in the lottery system! Only enter lotteries with characters whose character page is showing accurately in MyDDO.
Please note that winning character's prizes are delivered via the in-game mail system. Korthos Island has no mail service. The first available mailbox in-game is located in Stormreach Harbor. You must download the full game client in order to access Stormreach Harbor.
Just one question please?
Why? You can't honestly expect us to believe that the Devs have nothing better to do than this?
