August 2009 Drawing

Rollie

 
Wow, what a slack I am. I have not done a drawing in 3 months, that's a first!

Sooo, I finally did get around to doing a drawing. An unprecedented triple drawing! I've drawn 6 numbers and will give away a $75 Amazon gift cerfiticate to each winner.

Don't forget, drawings also include tickets for Warhammer submissions. So if you haven't been logging in when submitting Warhammer data, be sure to do so in the future!

I have already assigned ticket numbers for this period and done the drawing. Here are the winning numbers!



Now, I already know who the winners are, and in fact we have a winner from the past drawing in this month's winner list as well. Typically I do not allow people to win in back to back drawings, but that's when I was doing them monthly. Since I've slacked and not gotten the drawings done in the past 2 months, I am going to waive it at this time and anytime when I don't get a drawing done in each month. At least until noted otherwise!

As usual, you must claim your ticket to win the prize! PM me on the forums or email me, rollie (at) warcraftrealms.com

Good luck!

I am the happy owner of ticket 5317. :D

And... also the person Rollie was referring to...

However, considering that I got a mindboggling 1848 tickets, it was semi-inevitable that I might win as those 1848 tickets make out almost 10% of all tickets that went out (19057).

Congrats! On both the win and the number of tickets, that's pretty insane, nice one :)

No winner here.

@1974

It doesn't matter how many tickets you have. I think your odds are still the same. You could have 5 million tickets, and someone else have 1, and they could win. It is just like a raffle. You can buy 100 tickets, and it probably does increase your odds, but the other 100 tickets they sold each ticket is still a 1/200 chance of winning.

That process can be frustrating on the high contributors end when someone else wins with one or two drawing tickets, but exciting for them to win which could make them submit more.

Hehe... To be honest probability math was never my strongest point.. but I am going to point something out:

This is not like tossing a coin. :D Why? Because each ticket is only available once.

Let's say I have 1 ticket and you 4 999 999 tickets (and noone else has any). Rollie rolls once. You win. I now have 1 ticket and you still have 4 999 998 tickets. Now for the second roll, my probability of winning is still ridiculously small... but... my odds are slightly better. They have gone up from 1 in 5 000 000 to 1 in 4 999 999. Let's continue... Rollie has rolled 4 999 998 times and you have won all of them. Now, for the 4 999 999th roll: We both have 1 ticket and 50% chance to win. :D

Second case: Let's say by some stroke of ligthning, I win on the first roll. You now have 100% chance to win all the rest as I have no tickets left. :D

With a coin... I could toss one 100 times... and end up with 100 heads. Every time I toss one... the odds are the same 50:50. Each individual toss has the same odds, but the probability of getting 100 heads is not 50%. :D

All I know is my 200 tickets didn't even put a dent in the 19k tickets. Actually it makes me want to buy a wow account just for better numbers. I literally run census for 8 hrs every day on one computer for WAR, and in 3 months I earn 200 tickets.....just makes you a sad panda.

Congrats to the winners! No winning tickets for me, unless Rollie is dyslexic. :p

Rollie says:

Yes, we are very due =/
