The Sizzling Summer event is one to give additional benefits to members. The bonuses apply for people who remain member for every day throughout August and the bonuses are doubled if they remain member throughout September. The event is similar to Mad May.
Every day that you are a member in August, you receive 1 extra spin on the Squeal of Fortune. If you are a member the whole August, you will receive bonus 350,000 XP (it is unknown if it will be in a bonus XP item fashion, or simply a XP lamp). Every day that you are a member in September you get 2 extra spins on the Squeal of Fortune. If you are a member for both August and September, you will receive a bonus 700,000 XP at the end of September aswell as various customisation items, including:
- A new title
- A 5-piece tropical islander outfit
- A wild crab transformation dance emote
Also, there will be a chance to "Choose your fate"; a selection of four of the most powerful items ever seen on RuneScape. Each player may pick 4 items. These items include:
- Dodging death - Enables the player to respawn, still with all items/equipment and health fully charged.
- Instakill dart - Kills any enemy in one hit.
- Emergency healing box - Once consumed, the consumer regains all life points, and is healed instantly.
- Remote deposit box - Once used, a deposit box will be available for 5 minutes, anywhere.
NOTE: With the exception of the remote deposit box, the "Choose Your Fate" features cannot be used during PvP.
