With the launch of the English Countryside in FarmVille comes the launch of the official English Countryside Sweepstakes, being thrown by Zynga. Zynga has been previewing this sweepstakes for a couple of weeks now, alerting players that some very lucky farmers are going to win free, real-world trips to England via the contest.
You'll see that the contest is now available to enter via a new bar that has appeared underneath the FarmVille gameplay window (whether you're playing on your Home Farm or in your new English Farm). You will need to have completed the Bon Voyage Party, or have simply bought your way into England in order to enter this contest.
The rules are simple: Once you've unlocked your second farm, simply travel to that farm to earn an entry into the sweepstakes. You'll be eligible to earn three more entries everyday of the contest by harvesting crops in the English Countryside, up to a maximum of 64 total entries per person during the contest's run, that ends on April 12.
Five Grand Prize winners will receive a 5 night trip for two to England, a mini HD video camera, and $5,000 in spending cash. 25 First Prizes offer 1,000 Farm Cash and a real-world FarmVille hoodie, and finally, 500 Second Prize winners will receive 150 Farm Cash.
