MindArk has revealed the winning bids for three of Entropia Universe's virtual mall properties that were auctioned off late last month. One bidder, identified as 'Onkel RobRoy Bob,' purchased two of the malls, Twin Peaks and Emerald Lakes, for a total of $109,601. The third mall was picked up by 'Epsilon Eps Vaz,' an alleged 19-year-old from the UK, for $70,067. The real-world identities of the supposed buyers were not fully revealed in the official press release.
