Well, I decided to go with timeliness and risk you all thinking this was another April Fools! Best if you know what you're going after this month, right?
LOYAL READER LOTTERY:
Visit N4G at least once during every 24 hour period during the month of April and be entered into our Loyal Reader Lottery! If you want to keep track you can follow along with your Daily Visit score*, so if you want to keep track and make sure you've logged in during a 24 hour period check this score on your profile!
Prize: Nintendo 3DS
Submit news and get a top 5 News ranking in April and you can win up to $250. The prizes are:
FORUM LOTTERY: Post on the forums during the month of April! One winner will be chosen and will receive...
A 1-year subscription to GameFly! (2 games out at a time - subscription valued at over $200)
NOTE: Winners of the March Contributor Contest, Loyal Reader Lottery and Forum Lottery will be announced shortly.
*Just a note: I'm sorry the Daily Visit score isn't more 'every day' instead of its current 'every 24h1m', but that is just the front end tracking for you guys and when we run the lotto we pull from a more accurate list. So for those of you visiting every day diligently but not triggering the Daily Visit score reward, don't stress about it!
- Contests are NOT limited to the US/NA.
- You have to be willing to provide a valid mailing address as these are physical prizes. At the end of the month winners will be contacted on N4G via PM.
