Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and I’ve got some extremely sweet sweepstakes news for all of you!
That’s right! After I just posted about this sweepstakes yesterday, the Creators have given us not only the full information on it, but the Sweepstakes have now officially begun! I’d better get to it, because there is a lot of information to go through.
So first off, here is the official description of the Sweepstakes according the Poptropica Creators Blog.
From today until December 31, we’ve hidden one Island Hopper Ticket in every common room on Poptropica. Each ticket that you collect counts as one entry into the sweepstakes. There are over 40 tickets to find, which means you have over 40 chances to win!
‘Nuff said? Well, it’s a bit more complicated then that. So, let’s walk through it together, shall we?
When you first log in, you’ll be greeted by the pop-up pictured above. If you click on ‘get hopping‘, you will be taken to this page, which explains the rules and prizes in detail.
Well, now that you are on Poptropica, you can really start playing!
To participate, simply go into any Common Room. If you’re lucky (and if you are visiting from one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia*), you’ll find a golden ticket like this one:
*You must be a legal resident of the US to qualify for a prize, according to the rules of the sweepstakes.
Click on it, and you’ll see a screen like this:
Simply type the e-mail address you wish to enter the Sweepstakes with in the space given (with a parent’s consent if you’re a minor), submit it, and congratulations, you’ve done it! You’ve entered the Island Hopper Sweepstakes – at least, for your first time.
What do I mean? Well, go to your backpack and look in the category ‘Island Hopper’. Here, you’ll find your ticket, which will look like this:
Now you can go hop islands, including Home Island and the separate parts of some newer islands, in search of up to 47 tickets, therefore giving yourself more of a change to win one of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes’ fabulous prizes.
Oh, that’s right! I haven’t mentioned the prizes yet! Silly me.
So what are these prizes? Well, the Sweepstakes’ twenty runner-ups will receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy (which comes with an exclusive code to play a special Blimp Adventure mini-quest) along with a 1-month membership.
Meanwhile, the contest’s ten 2nd place winners will each receive a 6-month membership.
Finally, the lucky 1st place winner of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes will be able to meet Poptropica’s creator Jeff Kinney in a thirty minute long video call, which will be featured on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog. The grand prize winner also gets a 6-month membership and a Poptropica Blimp Toy!
In addition, from now to the end of the year, there will also be weekly sweepstakes! Every week, five weekly winners will win a 1-month membership. Each week period starts at 12:01am ET on Thursdays and ends at 11:59pm ET on Wednesdays.
So what are you waiting for? Get hopping, because the Island Hopper Sweepstakes will end on December 31!
