All you have to do is register for a SolidICE account, and link your WoW characters to your account from your profile. Once you have registered for a free SolidICE account you will be given a one time free raffle ticket. After this free ticket, you can obtain additional tickets by simply playing World of Warcraft.
Please note: you must log out of World of Warcraft for us to access your updated character statistics.
Users can most basically accumulate tickets by linking their WoW characters here on SolidICE, then playing WoW as they normally would.
The activities which reward points can be found in the next post.
When you are done playing WoW for the day, or for a session, log into the site, go to solidice.com/users/profile/raffles and press the check score button.
We will pull your stats from the WoW armory and award points based on your activities.
Once you have acucmulated 100 points, press the claim ticket button on the same page.
*Pleae note that if you accumulate more than 100 points, you will only be eligible for 1 ticket, so the more you check your score, the better.

You are able to simply enter a raffle by pressing the submit ticket button at the bottom of every raffle.
Each raffle has a limit to the number of tickets which may be submitted by any one person. This limit differs from raffle to raffle and is depicted by the blue progress bar located towards the bottom of each each raffle. Once the bar is full, no more tickets may be entered for that user.
Each raffle has a requirement for the minimum number of users who must participate before a raffle drawing will commence. This requirement is depicted by the green progress bar towards the top of the raffle listing. Once the bar is full and the participations requirement met, the drawing date is computed, and the countdown will begin.
Each raffle has a countdown time. Once the participation requirement has been reached, the drawing countdown will begin counting down to the drawing time. Each raffle will normally have a countdown time of 7, 14, or 30 days in length. Raffles which have a longer drawing countdown can be expected to have prizes which are greater in value. Raffles are currently expected to be drawn on or around 4:20pm on their drawing date.

- Generate a seed based off stock from public companies.
- Burn a random number of tickets.
- Select n number of random tickets from submission pot where n = # of burn tickets + 1
- Declare the nth+1 ticket to be the winner
- Select 1st and 2nd runner up using same procedure
Winners will be notified via email and on site private message. Should a winner fail to claim their prize in a yet to be determined amount of time, a runner up may be chosen.
Raffles can be expected to have from 1 - 3 available prizes. Once a winner is selected, the winner will be able to select a prize of their choice from the given raffle choices. Delivery method of the prize is to be determined and may vary from raffle to raffle Should the prize be a physical item, the winning participant will be required to provide shipping destination information, otherwise, a prize may be claimed via the raffle prizes tab in your profile.
