Tonight marked the release of the highly anticipated Raffle Booth in FarmVille, which will see players collecting raffle tickets with friends each week for chances to win some new (and exclusive) items, or just simple tools that can be used around your farm(s). For a clearer look at the feature, let's look at the steps you'll need to take to start entering into raffles.
First, you'll be given the Raffle Booth for free upon logging in. From there, you'll be able to immediately start collecting tickets. Of course, you'll need your friends' help in collecting raffle tickets, but there's a catch: you can only collect a maximum of six raffle tickets each and every day. If you help a friend with their request for a ticket, you'll earn one as well, and this does look to count as part of your six tickets allowed each day.
Once the feature gets up and going, the FarmVille Raffle Booth will be holding drawings once per week. Of course, the more tickets that you've collected with friends each week, the more individual entries you'll have to win that week's prizes. For instance, for this first week of the raffle, you'll have a chance at rare animals like a blue and green flower-patterned Ram and a flower-patterned miniature horse. If you do happen to win, you'll be happy to know that the friend that gave the ticket to you will also receive the same gift, and vice versa (should you give someone the winning ticket, you'll get the same prize as they do).
Ultimately, that's all this feature really boils do to: constant friend requests, as you all try to scramble together six tickets everyday, and an apparently ever-revolving set of prizes, similar to the way the Mystery Game currently works in the game.
If this feature becomes more complicated, we'll make sure to let you know, but for now, feel free to bask in the simplicity.
