Hopefully someone has. I've never won from them. They have some nice prizes but too many pop-unders and long time entry contest for me so I quit trying. Good Luck to you.

I'm always curious about this, too. They seem sketchy.

I won a Psych (the tv show) prize pack a few years ago. It just showed up with no notice.

I won from them - but I can't remember what.. I think it was a Movie "prize pack" (e.g. t-shirt, dvd, mug) type thing...

I've heard of the smaller prizes being won by members. But never any of the big prize packages that they allegedly giveaway. Not saying that they don't, I could have missed a winning post. Just seems weird to me.

I've never won, tried forever, finally gave up. Probably so many entries that the chances are slim.

I used to enter them, but stopped last year. They are legit, but they seem to be in the category of contests as those multiple magazine ones, where it's likely that millions of entries are received. So, if there's a one in a million chance of winning something (let's say), and you enter 1,000 times, you still have only a 1 in 1,000 chance of winning.

Has anyone ever compiled a rough list of contests that features approximate odds of winning - or has collated #'s of entries? Something like that would be really useful. I'll sleuth around and see if I can find something/some things. If I do, I'll share it here, because I'm still not comfortable with the idea of people spending a lot of time doing less than optimal things. This game is ultimately about numbers. Vegas understands.
