Sweet I won a laptop!!
 
So after finding out that my guarenteed scratch off prize was nothing for the last two days I checked today and found out I won an "HP Pavilion 3000+ laptop"!!!

Are these good? Do they send it to me??

Did you get some kind of email confirmation from Party? If not I'd email them just to make sure there wasn't a "technical problem" with this promotion this morning. I scractched my card and won $20, but the money hasn't been credited to my account yet.

You have to keep refreshing and scratching until it finally takes you to the page where it shows that you won.

Yesterday I only had to refresh once. Today I won $5 and it took about 30 refreshes before it finally took me to the next page.

I won $5. w00.

If you log into your account using Firefox, BTW, it should work.

In IE I just kept scratching and scratching and it didn't do anything.

In Firefox, once you complete the scratching, the screen changes and then the $$$ goes into your account.

Bob- you just played for 53 hours. How have you not done three of these? Too busy getting yourself a cruise?

I got a scratchcard on day 1 (and won $5) but they haven't given me any cards for days 2 and 3 despite the fact that I've played a ton.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Uhh, I think 3000+ means AMD Athlon 3000+ which is like 1.8GHz, I don't think they give you the model number because it's probally some promotional version that doesn't have a retail model

My guess is a $600 value

1.5 for 2, $7.50.

I got 2 $5 ones, but I scratched off one of them after 11:00am, and the message said it was no good after 11:00.

I have no idea if it was credited to my account or not, so I'm counting it as a 1/2 win. (It was not immediately credited, and I then promptly lost enough at PLO8 that $5 one way or the other wouldn't be noticeable.)

However, since I didn't play at all on one of the days I supposedly played to earn the card I probably didn't get the $5 for, I guess it all evened out in the end.

12-27-2005 12:42 PM

Re: Sweet I won a laptop!!
 
I won $5, but it wouldn't take. I kept-restarting I.E. and changing security settings to try to get past the scratch-off part. I could reveal the $5, but it never updated the page to say "congratualtions, you won, this was already scratched," and I didn't see the money in my account, in my activity, or in my history. So I kept trying and trying.

Finally went over to a different workstation and scratched it off using Firefox, saw the updated page, and got my $5 credit.

I estimate, given the playing time lost, I'm down about $55 on the deal.

Enjoy!

Some of you guys really need to work on your scratching technique or find a new hobby.

Get Video Scratching for Advanced Players and read it 3 or 4 times. Seriously. You'll think you understand it after the 2nd read, but there will be stuff you are just not ready for yet.

And stop posting stats with ridiculously small sample sizes. You need at least 7 or 8 scratch cards to be sure it's not just variance.

Well I guess I can count this is 2/4 now...

Party screwed me out of 4 points. I played 203 raked hands of 1/2 full ring yesterday and only receieved 36 party points for my effort. Maybe I can't add and multiply very well but 4 points for every 20 raked hands should give me 40 points for yesterday right?

My theory is, they knew I was gonna win a good prize so they screwed me out of 4 points so I couldn't scratch today. Now I'll finish the rest of the days and win absolutely nothing. Those bastards!
