Players are able to win Manderville Gold Saucer Points by participating in the gambling feature in FFXIV – Mini Cactpot, which happens daily, or the Jumbo Cactpot, which happens weekly.
Final Fantasy XIV is a popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). It was launched worldwide for PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows in August 2013, as a replacement for the unsuccessful 2010 version of the game. It was later released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and the Mac operating system.
The game takes place in the fantasy world of Eorzea, five years after the events of the original 2010 release. At the end of the original game, Bahamut, the primal dragon, escapes from its lunar prison. He escaped to initiate the Seventh Umbral Calamity, an apocalyptic event that destroys most of Eorzea.
Thanks to the gods’ blessing, the players escape the devastation by time traveling five years into the future. As Eorzea rebuilds and recovers, players must face the impending threat of invasion by the Garlean Empire from the north.
FFXIV features a persistent world in which players are able to interact with the environment and with other players. The game allows players to create and customize a digital avatar to enter the world.
Players are able to choose a starting class, race, gender, facial features and a name. Unlike the original game, players may only choose to be a Disciple of Magic or Disciple of War. Disciples of the Land and Hand are initially locked.
In the game, players are able to participate in multiple activities. However, it is recommended that they first follow the main quests before participating in other adventures. They are then able to complete various side quests, class and job quests.
Once players have reached a certain level, they will be able to take on the Disciples of the Land or Disciple of Hand jobs. Disciples of the Land are the harvesters. They obtain materials from the lands of Eorzea, and take them to be used by the Disciples of the Hand.
The Disciples of the Hand have the ability to use materials to craft new objects. It is believed that they are the backbone of the Eorzean economy.
It is important to note that classes within this discipline do not participate in battle. Instead, they earn their levels by crafting multiple new items.
As mentioned above, players are able to participate in various in-game events, one of which is the Cactpot. It is a lottery system that was introduced in patch 2.51 as part of the Gold Saucer.
Players are able to enter the Mini Cactpot, which happens daily, or the Jumbo Cactpot, which happens weekly. The winning players will be rewarded with Manderville Gold Saucer Points.
How to unlock Cactpot
In order to participate in Cactpot, players will need to unlock it. Players must thus complete the level 15 quests, Hitting the Cactpot and Scratch it Rich.
Hitting the Cactpot quest can be picked up by talking to Jumbo Cactpot Broker in Gold Saucer while the Scratch it Rich can be picked up by talking to the mini Cactpot Broker.
It is important to note that players must have previously completed the It Could Happen to You quests to unlock the two prerequisite quests.
FFXIV players are able to participate in the mini Cactpot three times per day. It is important to note that each ticket costs approximately 10 Manderville Gold Saucer Points (MGP).
It is very similar to a scratch-off lottery ticket. Players will have to reveal numbers, and depending on the sum of the numbers the rewards they can obtain will differ.
How to play mini Cactpot
Players will first have to select numbers. Every ticket has nine spaces with each numbered randomly from one to nine. However, eight of these nine spaces will be covered. Players should select three of the eight on their ticket.
After selecting numbers, players should choose one of the eight lines. When selecting a line, the sum of the three numbers in that line will determine the amount of MGP players receive. When all the numbers are uncovered, players will receive their reward based on the sum of the line they chose.
FFXIV players can join this weekly lottery by purchasing a ticket for 100 MGPs. After purchasing the ticket, players will need to select four numbers. The reward depends on how many tickets were sold.
When the wining number is drawn, in order from the last digit to the first, the more matching numbers players have, the greater the prize they will receive.
Players can win the maximum prize if they get all four numbers correct. The winner of the Jumbo Cactus does not only get MGP, but the Mad Bird Ring as well.
