Today, Pottermore announced the winners of the third House Cup competition.
And the winner is… Slytherin! Congratulations snakes!
Here are the final standings:
1st Place: Slytherin – 26,990,924 points
2nd Place: Ravenclaw – 26,916,194 points
3rd Place: Gryffindor – 26,740,44 points
4th Place: Hufflepuff – 26,715,401 points
It was another very close race, but ultimately Slytherin House came through at the end and won. Ravenclaw won second, Gryffindor third, and Hufflepuff came in last, unfortunately. This is the second time Slytherin has won the House Cup; they also won the first Pottermore House last June.
Pottermore has transformed the previously purple Great Hall banners into green once again, in honor of Slytherin’s victory. You can see how the Great Hall looks in the picture above.
The prize for this House Cup is a special badge that Slytherin House members will later be able to collect on Pottermore.com. As explained in an earlier post, details of the badge will be announced very soon, most likely tomorrow. We’ll keep you updated!
As for now, the points have been reset and thus the fourth House Cup competition commences! Happy Dueling and Brewing! 🙂
