Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

Why dont we post daily questions, and maybe answers, for those of us who are not too football savvy? This may allow more of us to take advantage of the free money.

Re: Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

here you go

Other people arent going to be able to help you tho, as its guessing the outcome of games and stuff. So its a pretty worthless promotion

Re: Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

You know what stinks? You need 30 points the day before to get the question. I played 164 raked hands of PLO8 yesterday, to which I should have been credited 32 points, but only received 28 points for some reason.

I emailed support about it. I can't wait to see the reply I get since I included math in my email.

Re: Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

The chance they have to give out the million is far less then one percent. Assume 10,000 people answer all 40 (probably way high) and that each person's average answer has a 60% chance of being right (remember people arent always going to pick the best answer, and many questions will be 50/50).

(1-(.6^40))^10,000 is .99999, so assuming i remembered the formula right and my assumptions are close party only has to pay out the million one out of 100,000.

Enjoy!

It's picking the ATL vs NO winner.

Re: Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

I was saying if 10,000 people answered all 40 questions. This is probably very high but whether its 1/100,000 or 1/10,000,000, the EV change for them is less then ten dollars.

Re: Party\'s \$1000000 Touchdown

Does anyone else think this is Party's way of hinting a possible Party Gaming Sportsbook?
