The Whole Cake Island-themed lottery prizes are divided into eight tiers and include 23 possible items.

Prize D (Big Mom candy case)
Prize E (Glass bowls, two varieties)

Fans who participate in the lottery can also enter to win an alternate color version of the Sanji figure as a "Last One" prize by sending in their lottery ticket stubs. The figure can also be won through a special "Double Chance" campaign that will run until August 13. More information can be found at the lottery website.
