The 'Raffle Ticket' item is a special item that can only be obtained from me by either winning a competition, winning a stream raffle or in other various ways. Each Raffle Ticket will allow you to redeem a qualified $10 (or less) digital game. They can be stacked which means you can use 2 raffle tickets to get a $20 game.

The best thing about the Raffle Tickets is that they're based on the game's retail price and not based on the asking Viz price. So if a game is being sold for 30,000 Viz that retails for $10, you'd only have to spend 1 Raffle Ticket on it.

You can find the Raffle Ticket Redemption page here:
https://www.vizzed.com/market/listings.php?type=Raffle

The listings on that page are in order of Ticket requirement with lowest being first. From there, the Raffle Ticket exlusive items appear first and then the rest of the listings are in alphabetical order.

Some digital listings can't be redeemed with a Raffle Ticket. Only listings meeting the following requirements will qualify:
-Must be sold by a verified seller (which is only me at the moment)
-It must be a game and not a bundle or DLC
-The game's game page has to have a retail price entered in

Likewise, some digital items can only be redeemed with a Raffle Ticket. These will be random items that I pick and will usually have a low quantity.

You can't sell the Raffle Tickets back to Vizzed since it's considered a "Priceless" item but you can resell it on the Vizzed Market and ask whatever you want for it. Due to the rarity and benefit listed above, you should be able to ask 10,000-15,000 Viz per a ticket.

If anyone has any questions, suggestions or feedback, be sure to let me know.

LunarDarkness2 : I didn't think I'd get to it so soon either but while doing things around the house, a solution came to me that was far quicker to pull off than the original solution I had planned on doing. Basically I planned on giving it its own page but instead decided to just implement the functionality right on the item listings page.

Davideo7 : Thanks for getting the redemption page sorted asap! I was wondering why I couldn't redeem at first. So anyway it works, I got the product key instantly and installing now! Again thanks!

I also particularly like the fact that the games are not only alphabetical ordered plus price ordered, easier to browse.

Neato, my dear David. That might add a boost to Vizzed competitions and streams raffles. I might as well give another go to a contest at some point, when I'll get some spare time

BlueBlur93 : Yeap I figured users looking at that page would have a different intent than those looking at the main digital games page. Users on the digital games page are usually checking up on the page every day so sorting newest to the top made the most sense. With this new page, users are most likely first wanting to see what they can afford and then from there are going to search either for a game that was on the digital page or just browse.


Laian : I really hope it does boost participation in these competitions. Between this update and the future Trophy item for competition and tournament winners, we should definitely be seeing more users participate in the stuff that I host.

So, raffles from now on will award these tickets that can be used for something more than Steam games? And what does the seller earn when someone buys them their items with these tickets?

The second question is just out of curiosity, but the first one is the real deal. I'm totally out of Steam, so if raffles can now award something that I can put to a good use it may be worth the try. Now I only have to find the time to actually be on anything that rewards those tickets, because the only times I've been around is because I was bored at 2 AM

EX Palen : At the moment the Raffle Tickets can only be used to redeem steam games but it'll eventually expand to other digital codes as well.

The seller gets the amount of Viz that they were asking for. So if the seller was asking for 40,000 Viz and the user bought the game they were selling with 2 Raffle Tickets, the seller would earn 40,000 Viz. The reason why I made it so that you can only buy games from verified sellers was to prevent potential abuse (for example, someone could intentionally charge like 100,000 Viz for a $10 game and then have a friend who has the Raffle Ticket buy it so that they can earn all that Viz). When I start expanding the list of users who qualify for the verified seller status, one of the requirements will be that they don't overcharge for stuff, otherwise they'd lose that status.

Ah, so it basically saves Viz for the buyer. That's quite nice.

Yeah, once people get used to the new market place and Viz start to become increasingly useful, people will start to expand to Playstation games and codes, which is the only thing I can benefit from. The fact they need to be PAL or region-free makes it harder for me to search for anything, but I'm sure we'll eventually get something.

I totally see that overcharge abuse if this was made for everyone. After all, in real life not all tickets can be exchanged at all places, so we're applying the same concept.

Seems they appear in the Virtual Items section and the special subsection more specifically if you are looking to buy them. Was kinda expecting to see it in Key Items personally.

I was going to test it out and buy something with my raffle ticket, but then I saw something else I've been wanting that's available for 2 raffle tickets, so I guess I better save it back for now!

Either way, glad it's working now, and it looks like an awesome feature! Great job David!

I've made it so that some digital items will only be available to those with Raffle Tickets. This will hopefully add more demand to the item and make users more grateful when they earn them.
