Slytherin Wins the House Cup!

Pottermore transformed the Great Hall in honor of the announcement of the Pottermore House Cup winner, Slytherin.

Just as the clock passed 9:07am this morning in London, Pottermore announced the winner of its inaugural House Cup competition.

And the winner is… Slytherin! 


1st Place: Slytherin – 74,290,864 points

2nd Place: Gryffindor – 74,069,919 points

3rd Place: Ravenclaw – 71,815,917 points

4th Place: Hufflepuff – 62,596,368 points

When Pottermore announced the Pottermore House Cup competition a few weeks ago, users new and old came back and millions of points were earned over the course of the competition. Users of all houses were constantly dueling and brewing potions. Pottermore users have been speculating on Twitter on who the winner would be. When the race clearly turned out to be between Slytherin and Gryffindor, many sided with the snakes because of Gryffindor’s winning streak in the books. They made sure Gryffindor wouldn’t win by either dueling Gryffindor or purposely losing to Slytherin. This made it a very tight race, but in the end, the snakes defeated the lions, and Slytherin won!

In honor of the victory, Pottermore transformed the previously purple Great Hall banners into green. You can see how the Great Hall looks in the picture on the right, above.

Upadate: The Pottermore Insider updated with a new post, congratulating Slytherin and addressing the mysterious “‘secret’ bonus” they promised to the winning house.

Here’s what they had to say:

We are delighted to announce that you can visit the Great Hall to view the award ceremony for the inaugural Pottermore House Cup.

Thank you to all houses for making this such a spirited contest.

We will be congratulating the winner in further detail, here on the Pottermore Insider tomorrow but in the meantime, good luck to all and enjoy the ceremony!

It looks like Slytherin will be receiving their well-earned prize tomorrow. We’ll have the latest of information as soon as it is released, so stay tuned.

Enjoy the festivities!

This is a developing story. We will be continuously updating it throughout the day. Stay tuned to our Twitter, @PottermoreNews7 for all the latest information

  1. People keep saying that us Slytherins cheated somehow so that we would win. But honestly people, think about it for a moment. Would Pottermore let someone cheat? Is it even possible to cheat? The answer common sense is giving us is that no, of course it was a fair competition and Slytherin won fair and square. Slytherins may be cunning and deceitful but we have a sense of honor. We worked hard for this while some of the Gryffindors (not all) said that it was obvious that they would win because it happened in the book. So while they were lounging around under false ideas Slytherin was working hard to win, fair and square.

    • You may say that but as you mentioned earlier Slytherins are decietful. So you guys probably found a way to win – by cheating.

      • slytherins don’t need to cheat we won because we are hard workers while you were lounging around having fun we were working our buts off for this! so no we didn’t cheat we deserved the house cup more than any of you. furthermore the fact that we won and you instantly assumed it was cheating makes you more deceitful but the saddest part is your lying to yourself because deep down you know we won for a reason and it wasn’t because we cheated. P.S we have already won two house cups and tommorow we will win a third one so stop kidding yourself, nobody can compare to the snake

    • yeah slytherins have some spy gryfinndor who keep losing to slytherins in dueling so

      slytherins get some easy house points and they make gryfinndor lose house points

      such a shame on you slytherins shame

      • the shame should be on you. we have no control over the choices of our house members but at least we have the decency to own up to the fact that some people are cheating. but don’t sit there and pretend that we are the only ones! recent investigations have found cheaters in every house! and do you know where the majority of them are from? hufflepuff. the honest house has the most cheaters so think about that the next time you are going to insult the noble house of slytherin

  2. slytherin cheated they have some spy gryfinndor keep gryfinndor lose house points by losing to
