RuneScape is almost ten years old. The popular browser MMO will be celebrating its tenth year of operation next week, having gone through countless updates and upgrades since it first launched on January 4th, 2001. To celebrate, all throughout the coming year, Jagex will be giving away thousands of US dollars to some very lucky players. Each month during 2011, ten lucky players will be randomly selected and each given $1,000 US dollars of prize money.
Free players can get a single entry into each month's contest by sending in a postcard, but for the best chance of winning, you'll have to subscribe. Tickets will be entered into the draw on the last day of each month, with the drawing taking place the following month. Subscribed members will get one ticket for each day in that month they were subscribed. The first competition will run from January 1st to January 31st. If you've been thinking about resubscribing to RuneScape, do so by January 1st to maximize your chances of winning. Full terms and conditions will be posted soon on the official competition webpage.
