How much is that worth? I'd have almost rather gotten my $100.

Well more than the $5 I won.. But still I am glad I won $5 instead of 0 [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Day 1 - 12.9k points (nothing)
Day 2 - 10.3k points (nothing)
Day 3 - 3.6k points (nothing)


I was doing the cruise-marathon for 25k points.

So, to my mind, they are DEFINITELY not giving better prizes based on playing more.

$30, $5, $10, $0.

Rigged. Then again, maybe I should get more than 42 points a day.

[/ QUOTE ]
I doubt it matters. I think the average value is about $15/day, assuming about 10,000 people qualify. I've been earning 42 points per day (1 set of 7 20+2 SNGs) and received 0, 0, 0, 0, and $30.

First day - Nothing
Second day - Nothing
Third day - $5

Oh hell yes. I had a crappy session on the third day and only made $3. This more than doubled my take for the session!!! Long live PP.

Re: Party\'s Scratchoff Promo
 
Days 1-5 for me, $5-$5-$5-$5-$0

I have a theory. Tell me what you guys think...

I noticed when I went to check my account activity there is a scratch off ticket number listed when it gave me the $5.
I am thinking it's really just random and sort of like a roll of pull tabs or something at bingo, where each ticket actually has a serial type number on it and that actually clicking onto the scratch off web page is giving the next ticket in line?

It certainly doesn't appear that our points have any bearing on the result.

Edit to add: I think they are just getting us used to it so they can add scratchoffs next to the blackjack icon down the road!

nor should it.

this was a general promo, not a VIP promo. it was intended for broad participation.

Based on the fact that a lot of people seem to win something each day, I'm guessing they have X number of prizes to give out each day. Once they know how many people have entries in a given day, they then mix in the appropriate number of losing tickets and randomly assign all the tickets.

I'm starting to think the scratchcard thing is rigged. 0 for freaking 6.

$5 today, $50 total, $154 rake. Sounds about average.

Re: Party\'s Scratchoff Promo
 
I'm 1/4, but won $75.

However, it has not been credited to my account yet. I have e-mailed Party's wonderful support. [img]/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Wish me luck.

WOW!! I won a DVD recorder!!!
 
Is this any good? I'm not really technologically savvy, it says it is a Panasonic portable 9" DVD recorder.

How do I claim the prize? Do they just mail it to me?

Thanks!

I called them and they refused to even send me an email confirming that I had won -- although verbally he said that he could confirm that I won and would receive it about 6 weeks.

The name Panasonic says it all.

They ship to whatever address you have registered with them. If that's a field in Montana, I suggest you change it.

I won the DVD player Christmas day. When I scratched it off and tried clicking on it to confirm nothing happened. I have emailed them twice trying to confirm and both times they said it would take 24 to 48 hours to get back to me and they were checking on it. Still no word.

I took the screenshot because I want to at least have something to argue with when Party screws this up.

That's what I've been doing. I'm 3/5 for a total of $30 and have screen shots of all five cards since none of the cash has been credited to my account.

I've written Party support and they told me they have "technical issues" that are being worked on and to contact them again in 48 hours.

Anyone who codes web apps and doesn't test in all common browsers, especially IE, is a moron on the grandest of scales.

Re: Party\'s Scratchoff Promo
 
this is what the vip people said
-----------
On our system the scratch card shows as unscratched. Please scratch the
card again and allow the page to fully load, displaying the
confirmation message. If you close the window before it finishes loading, the
results will not show on our system.

Rest assured that you will see the same prize when you scratch it
again.

Be advised that delivery can take up to a maximum of 6 weeks.
-------
i replied saying that i scratched 10+ times but they have not answered. i was actually scratching tons of times now and finally when i went back it said i already scratched it. so i think it will work now.

It's not even Firefox. You have to scratch the card ALL THE WAY to make sure you get your prize. I've gotten my cash both times instantly because I scratched it right.
