Isolated from the outside world by its geography, Hugel's rural society hosts many small festivals and competitive games that have not yet been introduced to the Rune-Midgarts Kingdom. The most popular of these festive games are the Monster Races, held only in Hugel's Monster Race Stadium. These races were originally simple games held by children, and then developed into a pastime that is enjoyed by people of all ages.[1]

On iRO, this area is localized as Monster Race Arena.

How to PlayEdit

Monster Race announcements are broadcast in Hugel before each race is about to be held. If you're interested in watching or wagering on the race's outcome, pay the small entrance fee to the Eckar brothers who will guide you to the Monster Race Stadium. Bettors can buy Monster Tickets to place wagers on Cute Pets and check the Cute Pet's LUK and HP by speaking to the Ticket Helpers in the Monster Race Stadium.

After each race, spectators and bettors will be automatically warped out of the arena after a certain amount of time.[2]

Race TypesEdit

  • Single Monster Race - Bet on which monster will win 1st place.
  • Double Monster Race - Bet on which two monsters will win 1st and 2nd place. The bettor only needs to guess which two monsters will finish the race in no particular order before the others to qualify for a reward.


Winning bettors can talk to a Medal Distributor to exchange their Monster Tickets for Prize Medals. The amount of Prize Medals rewarded will differ whether the bettor wagered on a Single or Double Monster Race.
