Balthazar's Big Raffle

Roll up, roll up – unique prizes to be had by the barrel in Balthazar's Big Raffle!

Log in each day and collect tickets for some unique prizes – including Golden Barrows armour. Collect Rummage Tokens, too, for a big blowout at the end of the month.

Also, if you're a fan of custom cosmetics, rejoice – we've upped the Keepsake limit to 30.

Read on to find out more!


How to Play

Balthazar's Big Raffle is members-only content, and is not accessible to Ironman players.


Balthazar will be by the Burthorpe lodestone each day for the whole of September, handing out tickets – one per day.

You can get an extra ticket each day by completing a daily challenge, or finding Gilly Willikers the clown. He can be found capering around Misthalin and Asgarnia's lodestones – it's up to you to hunt him down.

Each ticket – when handed in – is a shot at the rare, limited edition prize of the day. If you don't strike it lucky, a consolation prize - a small prismatic star per non-winning ticket - will be yours instead. Awesome if you're getting prepped for Double XP Weekend later in the month!

You can save up tickets if there's a particular prize you've got your eye on, or have a punt each day – the choice is yours.

Day Prize Quantity
Monday Spring cleaner, pre-loaded with 250 springs 5,000
Tuesday 100 million coins 100
Wednesday 5 large protean packs 30,000
Thursday 1 portable deposit box 40,000
Friday 3 deathtouched darts 20,000
Saturday Golden Barrows (Guthan, Ahrim & Verac) 1,000 of each
Sunday Golden Barrows (Dharok, Karil & Torag) 1,000 of each

Throughout September, you’ll also get a Rummage token for every 5 tickets you hand in (cumulatively – not necessarily all at once). You can use these from 1st October, when Balthazar’s Bargain Barrel Blowout begins.

Hand them in - any time in October - and you'll get to rifle through Balthazar's Bargain Barrel, which can yield coins, skilling resources, small protean packs, D&D reset tokens, medium prismatic lamps, or the much-coveted Golden Akrisae Barrows set.

The tokens also get you a pieces of a clown outfit – as sported by Gilly himself. There are five pieces of the outfit to collect.


Enjoy!

Balthazar's Big Raffle provides a daily, digestible slice of RuneScape, even in a busy September. Have fun, and head over to the forums to give us your thoughts.
