~ Become a Keeper of the North to enter the lottery.
~ Exchange endorsements and vote on resolutions to increase your chances of winning.
~ Win legendary cards for your collection.
Participating in The North Pacific (TNP) WA Development Program (WADP) is a great way to increase the value of your trading card collection. Through our card lottery, every day, two lucky WA nations receive cards of legendary rarity as gift, completely free!
How often does the lottery take place?
We run two lotteries per day: one emphasizing endorsement exchanging activity (the endotarting lottery), and another emphasizing WA voting activity (the voting lottery). For each lotterry, we first determine the list of eligible WA nations. We then randomly draw a winner from each list. We finally randomly draw a legendary card to gift to each winner. The selected winners and cards are announced on the regional message board, and are also added to the list of winners below.
Here is what you need to do to enter each of the two daily lotteries.
To become a Keeper of the North, you need to join the World Assembly, if you are not already a member, and then endorse Delegate McMasterdonia and all members of the Security Council. All in all, it should not take more than five minutes. Your nation will automatically enter both daily lotteries each day that you are maintaining your Keeper of the North status.
You can endorse other WA nations to increase your chances of winning the endotarting lottery. For each additional WA nation you have endorsed, your name is added to the endotarting lottery one extra time. For example, if there are 1400 WA nations in TNP and you have endorsed everyone, then each day your name is added to the endotarting lottery a total of 1401 times: One for being a Keeper of the North, and 1400 for having endorsed 1400 other WA nations.
You can vote on WA resolutions to increase your chances of winning the voting lottery. For each vote you have cast in the last 30 days, your name is added to the voting lottery one extra time. For example, if you have voted on a total of five resolutions (both General Assembly and Security Council) in the last 30 days, then each day your name is added to the voting lottery a total of six times: One for being a Keeper of the North, and five for the votes you have cast on WA resolutions.
We have put together two lists showing the chances each eligible nation has to win each of two daily lotteries. These lists update daily. If you are not listed, then that means that you are not eligible, which you can fix by becoming a Keeper of the North.
~ Probability of winning the voting card lottery.
Gift cards are selected from among the list of all season 1 and season 2 legendary cards: first, a season is drawn randomly (25% chance for season 1, 75% chance for season 2), and then a card is drawn randomly from among the selected season's legendary cards with equal odds. This list comprises a total of 353 cards (184 in season 1, and 169 in season 2), including some of the most valuable cards available.
It is the end of the month, why was there no lottery today?
On the last day of the month, the lottery winners are not selected randomly. Instead, cards are gifted to the winners of three top-10 categories of the WADP monthly awards. Therefore, competing for the WADP monthly awards provides you with another way to win legendary cards. Gift cards are selected in the same way as on any other day.
The results of the lottery are announced on The North Pacific's RMB. Below you can find a list of all previous results announcements. The winners and gifted cards are also tabulated in this Google spreadsheet.
Are there any other ways I can get cards for free?
Yes! You can join The North Pacific Cards Guild, which will allow you o take part in The North Pacific Great Card Giveaway. This allows you to request any non-legendary card you want, which we will then gift to you as soon as we find it.
Where do the legendary cards used in the lottery come from?
The government of The North Pacific operates nations Card Farmer 1 to Card farmer 1500, and uses them to expand the card collection of regional nation The Northern Light. This includes the legendary cards used for the lottery.
Can I help?
If you would like to contribute, please feel free to donate cards you do not need to regional nation The Northern Light. We are particularly interested in cards of common rarity, of nations that have ceased to exist, and with eight or fewer owners. Thanks in advance for your cards!
