Social City Adds Water Park Raffle Items


Social City developer Playdom has updated the in-game item raffle, with a new water park mega building up for grabs. To obtain the new water park, players first need to collect all eight parts.

Each time a player spins the wheel in the in-game newspaper, they will receive one of the eight Water Park pieces, chosen at random. Each spin costs 8 City Bucks, meaning players will be spending a minimum of 64 CB$ (about $12) to get this attraction, and potentially much more, if they have unlucky raffle wheel spins.

Personally, we aren’t big fans of this raffle format. We think a good rule of thumb is to only allow games of chance in social game elements involving in-game currency. Once real cash is involved, it makes us uneasy that some players will spend much more money obtaining an item than others.

    Don’t they need some kind of permit to do games of chance, like the fulle?

    I hate ir, but sure have some nice things 2 city bucks should be enough in case prices got repeated. I completely missed the military base, and it was my sugestion for new stuff, but was too expensive.
