The only thing that's for sure is that the bigger the number, the better. Fortunately, Wizard101's
claim to fame is more solid than most, as they recently announced their 10,000,000th registered wizard

To celebrate the 10 million milestone, KingsIsle is throwing a party for wizard #10,000,001 at Ravenswood School of Magical Arts. All players are eligible to receive a nifty party pack that holds a decorative banner, balloons, a festive party hat and moist, delicious cake.
