Raffles are always a fun part of the CRX event. People get to see what is available and purchase tickts to shove into a container, hoping that their ticket will be drawn. Due to this being a virtual world-wide event, subject to the legalities of state gambling laws, as well as trying to collect money with PayPal or other online payment services that strictly prohibit raffles, we have opted to use auctions for items that will be pseduo-secretly placed on eBay.More information will be available in the AUCTIONS section on our Discord server.
