If the bot is not available for trading then it means it’s trading someone else, I appreciate your patience!

[Mann Co.] Lottery Information & Rules

This page will show you the steps on the general rules and information about the lottery, including how to actually join one. It’s very important that you read everything if you are not familiar with this lottery and how it works.

[spoiler title=”STEP 1 – General Lottery Rules”]These are the general lottery rules, read them and please, be aware of them. These rules may change at any times, especially when some things has been forgotten to be added.

Participation in ONE forum only!
It’s important that you only join/participate the lottery in 1 forum and 1 forum only. Please don’t join through multiple forums as it makes my job harder. I’ll add a list of forums you can join in every single lottery I make within the main news.

Free to Play Users
I’m afraid I have to disappoint the Free to Player users for my lotteries. Only premium users are allowed to join. I’m sorry for this, but I prefer to play safe. Why don’t you become a premium? It’s cheap and Team Fortress 2 is well worth it.

SteamREP Tagged Users
For obvious reasons, all people who have been SteamREP tagged as a scammer will not be able to claim any item. However, those who have been tagged as caution will be reconsidered depending on how you gained it. Your SteamREP history will be checked as well!

Playtime requirements
Everyone who wishes to join needs to have at least a play time of 100+ hours. I’m sure you can manage, right?

No duplicate accounts & No Cheaters!
I do not accept cheating in any kind of way. This includes people who use duplicate accounts, I don’t allow people who are banned on my server (Trade server) to join the lottery either.

Rejection of winning item within good reason
I (Skyrider) have the right to reject the winning prize to any winner when I have a good and valid reason for it. For example, when you have not followed the rules.[/spoiler]

[spoiler title=”STEP 2 – Joining an active lottery “]Joining a lottery is relatively easy. Usually I’ll be posting the lottery on multiple forums. Which forums you can participate the forums in will be mentioned on each lottery.

Once you have chosen one, (and only one!) please visit:

Search for your own steam information. You’ll see “Profile Identifiers” somewhere in the middle. Click op “Copy Info” at the right:

Then paste the information in any of the active/open lottery threads on the forums I’m hosting the lottery on.

You may wonder why I ask for this and the answer is simple. I’d like to know who you are before I accept you in the lottery. The lottery is completely free so I don’t think you have much to worry about. Trust me, I’ll only use the info for the lottery purposes, nothing more.[/spoiler]

[spoiler title=”STEP 3 – The how, what, why, where and when.”]

-= What site will you use to pick the winners ??=-
TF2Lottery is making use of the raffle system of It’s recommended for you to login on the site first (by using steam login). Once you have done that and have joined an active lottery of TF2Lottery, you’ll (in time) will receive a private message which contains a private link (one time use only) in order for you to join the lottery.

-= Why am I not on the lottery list yet?=-
Be patient. I’m adding everyone on the list all by myself, and it takes time for me to invite everyone. Everyone who has joined will receive a private message which contains a link that you can use to join the lottery. It may take a few minutes, hours or perhaps a few days. But don’t worry, you’ll receive your link. It just needs some time.

-= How do I know if I’m invited? =-
That entirely depends on where you have joined the lottery. I’m posting the lottery on multiple forums, and you can apply on where I post them. So let’s say, if you decide to join through the Steam Forums, then you shall receive a private message on the steam forums, with below as an example:

The private message will contain the link you need in order to join the lottery.

Join through the official TF2Lottery forums? Then you’ll see something like this:

and this:

-= Have I been added to the lottery? I clicked my private link! =-
The private message I send you clearly states how exactly to join the lottery. But that’s very easy. Once you’ve joined however, you have to be sure that you are in the participation list. Go to the TF2R link I provided on each lottery and scroll down. You should see this:

Check if your name is on the participation list. Be sure to click on “ENTER” button once you clicked the private link I gave you.

-= Why do other people get invited faster?=-
That’s because of the limitation of the Steam Forums. I can only send 1 private message each minute every time, so it takes me 20 minutes just to send out 20 private messages to people containing a link. This is why people are being invited quicker on the official TF2Lottery forums because it has no limitation on how much Private Messages I can send.

-= When Will the Lottery End? =-
There are 2 ways how the lottery can end. The first one once the time hits 0 or when all the lottery participation slots has been filled. Seeing the participation slots never get’s filled entirely, it all depends on the timer. I usually set the timer to 2 weeks so I have all the time I need to add everyone on the lottery list. Want to know how much time there is left? And how many people have joined so far? Check out the TF2R link given out in every lottery.

-= How do I claim my winning item? =-

Won a lottery? Great! Now you can claim your item that you won! All Item Claims goes through here:

Claim your winning item!

But please, read this first:
How to claim a winning item!

It contains all the information you need to know on how to claim an item. I don’t wish to sound rude, but if you don’t fill in the information correctly, you might not be able to claim your winning item. It’s really important for people to read. You have 2 weeks in order to create a thread to claim your winning item. You are welcome to add / contact me regarding your item, as long you created a thread.

[spoiler title=”Participation postcount requirements! (important)”]I’d like to remind everyone that if you wish to participate outside the TF2Lottery official forums (such as the steam forums or FacePunch) that you need a certain post count. You need at least have a forum post count of 50. Those who don’t have enough posts on the steam or face punch forums are welcome to join through the TF2Lottery official forums.[/spoiler]

—> Please remember that I have the right to reject your winning item under good reasons.

[Mann Co.] Lottery #3 – Back for some more?

Hello everyone!

I’d like to welcome you all to the third lottery named Back for some more? First, I’d like to thank our 2 main sponsors:

Appreciate it if you could check them out.

ESForces (A Dragonball Z Modification for Half-Life 1 – trust me, the mod will exceed even Half-Life 2 mods) is our new hosting and GameServers (If you can check it out, that’ll be awesome!) is sponsoring our trading server. A custom trading map that SoulShard and I are working on constantly. If you have some time, go check it out! More information about the trading server can be Found Here

The server IP is: – But you can also connect to, same result as the IP.

Alrighty, before we start with the lottery.. I’d like you to read the following:

Valuable Lottery Rules


Valuable Lottery Information

These contains most of the information you need to know about the lottery. Please do not ignore it! You do want to join the lottery, right? Course you do. Ignoring it will effect your entrance request in this lottery. So, once you have read the rules, let’s get started!

A big thanks to: FunTom, Fixeet, Pocket, KRosen

For donating items to the lottery. Your help is much appreciated! Did I forgot to mention you? Let me know!

The first item we’ll have in the lottery will also be a high valued item. It’s been in the lottery before many times. It’s…

That’s right, earbuds! I specially got the earbuds to give away again in the end! (Aren’t I adorable?). But only 1 lucky person can win it. But as always in all my lotteries, it won’t just stop at 1 item. There are tons more of items that you might be able to win:

And as a bonus, I’ll add extra hats!

Completely free!

And noes! There’s more! (Course there is)

10 Duel mini-games! As a bonus, you’ll get 2 extra! For the price of nothing.

And for the last TF2 items that you can win….. *rumble*

^ Each row for 1 person!

But wait! There’s more! In this lottery you can also win something else besides Team Fortress 2 Items! Want to do something else instead rather than playing Team Fortress 2? You came to the right address:

Click on the images above to go to the store so you can view some in-game screenshot and video’s.

Bad Rats = Crate #7
Sanctum = Crate #8
RoboBlitz = Crate #9
Portal 2 = Crate #17

The TF2R item page of this lottery will contain crates. Seeing I cannot add giftable games at the moment on the TF2R website, I have added crates instead. The number above shows which crate number belongs to what game.

Are you READY? Are you READY to join this lottery?! Awesome!!

Click HERE on HOW to join the lottery this AMAZING lottery!

OR, CLICK HERE: (Both links are the same)

If you need help in any kind of way, you are welcome to email me at [email protected]

Finally, I’d like to say that I am well aware of that some people don’t wish to join the lottery thinking that they won’t win anything at all. Let’s not forget people that this is a free lottery. So whenever you’ll win something or nothing at all, the only thing that it cost you is a little bit of your time and effort. It’s not like I’m asking for items.

Good luck to you all.

[Mann Co.] Lottery #3 on it’s way!

Hello everyone!

It has been a while since the last lottery, and I’m here to tell you that soon there will be another Free Lottery!. Before we get started, I’d like to thank for providing me with a stable hosting. For those who are not familiar with ESForces, it stands for Earth’s Special Forces. It’s a Dragonball Z Half-Life 1 modification with quality you’ve never seen before in any kind of mod. It’s very worth checking it out.

I’d also like to thank for the Team Fortress 2 Trade Server we have! But I’ll get to that a bit later in the news report. If you are interested in a server for any kind of game, check out the link above! They are quite cheap.

Now if it’s alright with you, I’d like to discuss the future of the third [Mann Co.] Lottery with you.

Recently, I’ve been able to gather 13+ items (mostly hats) for the next lottery, but I have the feeling this might not be enough for the next lottery. I always fancy having the lottery rather big, so there are quite a lot of people at least winning something rather than going home empty handed.

Long story short, I need your help. In order to make the lottery quite large, I need your help in donations for the next lottery. But do understand that donating is not required just to get in the next lottery, as always it will be free. But the more people who are willing to donate the better it’ll be for the lottery and the more people will be able to win items.

Do you have any spare metal? Scrap, reclaimed or refined? Spare weapons or even hats that you no longer want? If you are willing to do so, please donate them to the next Free Community Lottery!

It’s very easy. All you have to do is to Register on the forums and create a thread in the Make a donation! section and you are good to go! be sure to read the “Donation Information” thread in the donation section so you are aware of what I am doing with the normal weapons being donated. You could always add me on my steam account as well for direct donation: – Just be sure you are trading the real Skyrider.

If you wish, you could also donate through PayPal.

All paypal donations will always be used for the Lottery! For example, Earbuds will be bought with it.

I thank you in advance!

I’d also like to mention we have a new Trading Server!

For those who prefer not to remember any IP’s, you can connect to the server by connecting to It’s always set to bring you to your Trade Server! It’s using a map that SoulShard & I have altered/created so it’s worth checking out!

Kind Regards,

[Mann Co.] New pool in Stock Market v6

-= NEW POOL in Stock Market v6 =-

Stock Market v6 will have a completely new pool and is a medium sized map. This map isn’t just about a new “pool”, it’ll be part of a scavenger hunt in order to gain the number for a a multi-keypad lock!

It’s simple. 5 books are hidden in the Stock Market which only will be visible once you get near them. Here will be the “hints” of where you can find them all so you can find them a bit easier.

– Water
– Basement
– Elevator (S)
– Cabinet
– Arena

Destroy them all, and you’ll gain access to the pool. A portal will open somewhere on the stock market, go find it boys. BUT THAT’S NOT IT!

10 books also exists within the pool to open another secret area… go find them!

[] Free Community Lottery #2 – Late Christmas Presents!

It is time for the second [] Free Community Lottery! But ppsstt, don’t tell. It’s actually the eleventh lottery.

Once again, I’d like to thank the Donators who have donated so far! You’ve been all a big help, and I thank you for this. And before I continue, I want everyone (and really, everyone who wants to join the lottery) to read the following thread:

[Mann Co.] Valuable Lottery Information


[Mann Co.] Valuable Lottery Rules


And view the TF2Raffle link here:

Which shows the time left and how many people have joined so far.

These threads shares all the information and rules you need to know. It’s very important to read it all so hopefully your answers you might have will be answered. By reading above 2 threads, I can assume that you agree to it all when you sign up for this lottery. I’m doing this entirely for free, from both donations and my own backpack, so please; at least make some effort for it. Once you have read both, I’d now like to announce…..

[] Free Community Lottery #2
Late Christmas……………. Combo Edition

You can join this lottery through:
[Steam Forums] – [Official TF2Lottery Forums]

Of course, we always start with the hats! Let’s show what you might be able to win, shall we?

That’s right, combo. There are 10 hats in the first row. See it? See it? Goody! Now let me quickly explain how it works. Let’s say you won the first hat in the first row. Then you’ll get the other hats below it. Won the second hat in the row? Then you also won the hats below it! And so on!… It’s.. that.. simple!

Vintage Weapons Anyone?

Now, in this lottery, I’m going to do it slightly differently.. See these vintage items?

Good, you (one lucky winner) can win them all. That’s right, all vintage items to 1 single person. So in the end, you might be able to win 48 vintage weapons. That should look good in your backpack!

Of course (as always) there’s more! Fancy in a duel?

10x dueling mini-games (worth 50 uses) will also be given to 1 single person. With these babies, you can get your dueling ranking up in no time. Hopefully, you shall win every single duel!

Of course, there’s more.. You thought it ended by now?

These are 2 decal tools, 2 name tags and 1 description tag. You can scratch that the items goes to multiple people, it’ll all go to 1 lucky winner. And yes, that might by you…

Of course we haven’t forgotten a few strange weapons either! What’s a lottery without some extra items?

That’s right, also to 1 single winner!

Last but not least

Guess? What? Yes! Also to 1 person!

In this lottery, you shall not win just 1 item! If you win, you shall win the combo!

How do you join? Well, that’s easy! The only thing that you have to post is your SteamREP information, with as example:

steamID: Skyrider
steamID32: STEAM_0:0:11715230

That’s it!

You can gain the information by going to SteamREP, searching your own information and click the “copy info” at the right side of the page to paste it within the forum posts. But ONLY join in 1 FORUM. So don’t join on the steam forums & the TF2Lottery forums.

Good luck to you all.
