Frontierville, Social

Late last month, we brought you news concerning the launch of zLotto, Zynga’s scratch off lottery game, which promised future prizes for FrontierVille. That time has come, as four new items available to win for FrontierVille via the lottery. In other game news, we see the announcement that a very interesting Horseshoe Pit will be coming soon to the Homestead.

FrontierVille Prizes Now Available Via zLotto

If you’re someone who plays a lot of zLotto, passing out and receiving gifts between your FarmVille, PetVille, YoVille and Mafia Wars friends, you’ll be happy to know that there are now four more gifts available for you to win, only this time, in FrontierVille.

We knew prizes would be coming to the game since the launch of zLotto proper, and luckily, we didn’t have to wait long to see them come to life. As with the other zLotto prizes, the four FrontierVille prizes are separated into four sets 1-4.

Set One rewards you with the Pet Rocks, Set Two is the Crooked Target Fence, Set Three is the Buggy, and Set Four is the Jack Statue.

While your chances at receiving these items will be pretty slim, as it is with other games’ prizes, the only way you can get them is to try, so be sure to head over to the lottery’s website and start sending those tickets out to your friends!

Horseshoe Pit Now Available

A new buildable object is now available in FrontierVille, that comes in the form of a Horseshoe Pit. The frame of the Horseshoe Pit is available to purchase from the game’s market for 2500 coins and 20 wood.

Once you buy it, you’ll need to whack the frame 10 times, with each whack costing 10 wood (a total of 100 wood).

Now that the frame is built, you’ll need to finish the Horseshoe Pit, but instead of being like other buildings in FrontierVille, where you just need to earn a certain amount of parts, you instead will have to play five other Zynga games and meet various requirements in order to earn the objects for free.

There is one collectible item, however, in the form of Measuring Tape. You’ll be able to post a message to your wall asking your friends to send you Measuring Tape, and they’ll receive on in return if they help you out.

For the other five items, we go to other Zynga games. The Wooden Board can be earned by playing FarmVille, and planting and harvesting 200 crops. The Bar Stool can be earned by playing Cafe World, and is rewarded upon leveling up in the game, so long as you are over level 5. The Gold Horseshoe can be earned by leveling up in Zynga Poker (NOT Poker Blitz), so long as you are above level 5. The Spike is earned through Mafia Wars, and you need to level yourself up three times (so long as you’re above level 5 – minimum level 8) to earn it. Finally, the Bag of Sand is found in Treasure Isle, with a single level up earning you the bag, so long as you are over level 5.

If you’d rather skip any of these steps, you can do so, at the price of 50 Horseshoes for EACH step.

We’ll be sure to bring you more news about the Horseshoe Pit after we finish it ourselves! For now, head over to the game’s page to get started on building your own Horseshoe Pit.
