Yes you read that correctly. For only five days (June 15-19, 2015), we are bringing back free-to-bid auctions! In case you weren’t around when we last had these free auctions, here’s how they work.
Bids placed in free to bid auctions do not deduct anything from your account, and you don’t have to pay the final auction price, which is why they’re called “free auctions!” The only limitation is that every bidder will only have 5 bids to place in each of these auctions, so be sure to use them wisely. Also, you must have purchased the starter bid pack to participate.
The winners of these special auctions will get gameplays, and they could have either 1X, 2X or 5X multipliers attached. You can only win a free to bid gameplay auction once, so keep that in mind as well.
What makes free-to-bid auctions different from normal auctions?
1) Zero-Risk Bidding
Every user gets five free bids to place in each of these special auctions. It won’t cost you any additional bids to participate. So if you decide to try it out, don’t worry about stocking up on bids beforehand – you won’t need ‘em! And since everyone has five free bids to use, every bidder stays on an equal playing field.
2) Auctions are for Gameplays
These auctions are strictly for Gameplays only. So if you win one of these, your account will be credited with a Gameplay which can be redeemed to play any of our games for Free Bids!
3) Ending Price is Irrelevant
When bidders are able to bid for free, the auctions tend to go on for a long time and end at a super high Ending Price. Don’t let this scare you or keep you from bidding, because regardless of what the ending auction price says, the winner still pays nothing!
What else should I know about free gameplay auctions?
You can only win one free gameplay auction.
Once you win your first free-to-bid gameplay auction, you will no longer be allowed to participate in another one with the same multiplier. This allows more users with more opportunities to win.
Lots of Competition
These free gameplay auctions will be much more competitive than traditional auctions. If you really want to win one, be prepared for a little longer period of bidding with more users going for the same prize. But don’t let that scare you away. These auctions are still free to you, so why not give it a try?
