I WOULD ASSUME THAT......
THE ODDS ARE BASED ON HOW MANY PLAYERS ENTER THE SWEEPS
AND HOW MANY TIMES A PLAYER ENTERS.
THE MORE YOU ENTER THE BETTER YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.
MAYBE THE PLAYER THAT WON 3 PRIZES ENTERED ALOT.
SPEND THOSE TREATS AND ENTER ALOT OF TIMES TO UP YOUR CHANCES.

GOOD LUCK Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Desk, I'm the one you're talking about. I won two of those back in April and only one recently in May. There were a bunch of other prizes awarded to other members, but GDG never updated the winners list (so there were a lot of people inbetween those wins of mine). I sent a message to Brian since the two from April never even showed up on my profile's prize page ... the next thing I knew, all three showed up at once on the main prize page. If you look at the dates for those wins, you'll see what I mean. And ConnieLea is right, I do enter quite often.

Thank you very much for the congrats, El Cee!

I just checked the main prize page and I gave desk the wrong info ... according to the dates GDG posted, it does look like I won 'em back-to-back, but that's not the case. One of the Bed Bath & Beyond and the Old Navy were won around mid-April while the last BB&B was 5/16. The 'featured winner' thing must be something new they've started. Not sure why they don't update winners on a regular basis ... it would be nice to be able to send congrats to them.

Desk, yes, I did win again, for the sweeps that ended 5/27 ... a good 3 weeks ago. Bear in mind that there were several other sweeps in between what is being shown. I have no idea who the winners were (I'm pretty sure it's not me since I didn't even enter them) or why GDG is not showing who those winners were. Perhaps the winners requested to remain anonymous, I don't know. Unlike pch games, GDG does not list an 'odds of winning' statistic, so there's no way for any of us to know how many people have entered any particular sweepstakes. Maybe Brian can give you more info as to why some winners are shown and some aren't. It's possible the sweeps I'm entering are just not that popular where you have tens of thousands of players entering treats.

Also, as an aside, I'm unemployed at the moment, so I have more time to spend here at GDG than someone who is working. As part of preparing for different job testings, I have to spend mega-hours in a quiet environment listening to a scanner ... playing here on GDG just keeps my eyes and hands busy while my ears/brain are absorbing radio transmissions.

If you like, send me a message through the mail system. I'll be happy to answer any of your questions ... Very Happy

Thank you all so much for the 'congrats'! Truth be told, I need the job more than the gift cards, but since moola is so tight, at least I can use the cards for Xmas gifts this year. I was so happy to see GDG posted two other winners (tooth and Gcards; both $100 winners), so desk won't start thinking it's a conspiracy. Have a wonderful day, everyone!

How do they contact you if you won? the site says I won but no one has contacted me.
