The Great Challenge & Festivities are back!


Great Challenge/Lottery



As in previous editions, this contest has two phases: Great Challenge and the Festivities!



Collect horseshoes by completing goals to earn gift. Gain enough clovers from the lottery to buy gifts and the jackpot gift.


Great Challenge Phase



Click to display
Each day you will receive 3 daily tasks that will award you with some horseshoes. If you missed a day or two, no need to worry — the contest keeps your tasks from previous two days available for you to finish. You can help other players with their goals if you’ve finished all three you were given on any given day.

During this time, all VIP players can try to find and win Ymir (the newest member of the Nordic collection) through the Titan’s Challenge.

Tip: Once the next phase starts, all other players can try to get him via this luck item.

Ymir Fragments are available within the Titan’s challenge as well… and the more horseshoes you collect, the more fragments you can earn from the Titan’s challenge when the festivities begin.


Lottery Phase 29/05/2019 12:00 to 03/06/2019 14:00



Click to display
The number of draws for the Lottery are determined by how many total horseshoes the entire community collected during the Great Challenge phase (up to 4 times per day).


How to earn tickets?



Buying them with equus

Winning competitions with your horse

Being helped by your friends (only on with the first time you help another player each day)

Catching them in UFOs

Receiving them in a lottery draw or by participating in the Great Challenge

(NEW) Buying Black Market items (1 ticket for each item regardless of pass cost)

(NEW) Extending VIP membership (1 ticket regardless of the length of time extended)




Clover shop



Among the gifts that you win with every lottery ticket, you will receive clovers. The Clover shop is where you can go to choose how you’d like to spend them. You can even buy Ymir fragments with clovers in the shop as well!

Shop access runs until 06/06/2019 12:00


Jackpot



A new Nordic divine has joined the game! Welcome Ymir! Ymir’s gift is a 5th Element.


How can I get Ymir?



By chance in the Titan Challenge

As a jackpot during the Lottery

By accumulating enough Divine fragments through gaining them from the Titan’s Challenge and by using clovers in the clover shop to buy his fragments

Warm regards,

The Howrse Team

I was looking forward to the next time this would come, the divine looks pretty cool default smiley 8-)

It would be nice if you got a ticket for extending your pegasus subscription too as well as VIP but it's still handy that the new ways of getting tickets were added default smiley (y)

This was discussed on preprod and it was my understanding that you will be able to get tickets for VIP/Peggy extensions. I will try and get that verified for you.

This is verified however it is not as we used to have it.

I am guessing because of the pass change ( 1 old =100 new) we now just get 1 ticket for any extension, no matter how far that extension is. So 1 month or 6 still gives you 1 ticket.

The same with BMIs. Whatever the value you just get 1 ticket. Again a 100 pass or 600 pass BMI item you get just 1 ticket.

One other note. When the lottery starts

On preprod we could buy fragments with just 5 clovers and the price did not double when we bought more so the smart thing if you want this divine is to wait as you can lessen the number of TCs to open by reducing that through clover buying.

Could you please explain more? I can't seem to find where my lottery tickets are and am I able to get this divine without buying passes, and only using the lottery tickets? When should I try for the divine? default smiley ^)

Once the great challenge is over the lottery will start and clovers can be won then. My suggestion is to wait to go for the divine until you have won a few draws and accumulate a few clovers.

Like previous lotteries you can buy various things with the clovers.

Thank you Freehold for going out of your way to help with this, it's much appreciated default smiley ^) I'll be renewing mine over the lottery period and I'm happy you get a ticket from itdefault smiley (y)

Grey fern stud, the lottery will start on the 29th of this month and you can start earning tickets then default smiley 8-) For now you can only earn horseshoes, unless you help someone who asked for help with an objective they had trouble with (after you complete your three daily objectives), then I'm pretty sure you get a ticket if you help.. please correct me if I'm wrong though and if there's any other ways to get tickets during the Great Challengedefault smiley :)

I just wanted to add that I love that there's an AP prize, not sure if it's just me but I can't remember the last time they offered us 50 at the same time. Nice boost default smiley ;)

Maybe if you are one of the lucky few that win all the divine fragments at once. Sadly I dont have that luck. Have spent roughly 2500 passes and my fragment gauge is just over 600 default smiley (n)

You could win it in the draws. Also the clovers you will win in the draws can go toward the purchase of fragments thus reducing the number of TC you need to open.

I can't emphasize this more. Waiting will give you enormous advantages.

Receive the colour bonus on a horse that never had it before

Is that right that Saddle Cloth, Polo Wraps and Ear Bonnet 3*** not count as colour bonus? default smiley (8)

Just curious but is there a limit on how many lottery tickets you can win by helping other players. I have helped 4 today and my lottery ticket count is still at 6 wins.

Thanks and cheers default smiley ;)
