Hey!!! WT- why didn't i win the Loyal Reader Lottery. even though i have the highest Daily login in points than anyone here on N4G.
Cat  +   1548d ago
You were entered, you did not win!

As posted in each month's contest details:

"*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!"

Please don't spread misinformation :)

It means that the Daily Visit score logs 24hr visit to 24hr visit, while we pull the lottery winners from those users that have visited the site at least once each calendar day.

Dude you always get 3 free games, take it and run!

You should actually be stripped of any winnings due to poor submission editing. (just one is all it takes)

I had thought there was a way to rate someones submissions but I don't see that option anywhere. They need to bring that back.

Example of no editing and still getting approval:

hey i got a message saying that i won , i didnt even know about this contest , is it really true or is just a prank?
Urrakia34  +   1547d ago
No, this is not a prank. It's 100% legitimate. These contests are held monthly so you might want to keep visiting the site often. ;)

Congrats winners.

Oh and thanks to Cat and N4G. :)

Cat  +   1547d ago
Not rude at all - I think it's great that you won and are a truly loyal N4G reader - so much so that you weren't even logging in every day to enter the contest :D
mindedone  +   1548d ago

how do you enter and when does the next contest start
JL  +   1547d ago
Contests are held each month. Usually you will find them posted within the first couple days of the month. Contests vary from month to month, so you'll have to just check back for the details on how to enter and win each month.

For the month of September, you can follow the below link to find out how you could win.
Brownghost  +   1547d ago
thanks i just found out about these contests
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1546d ago
When will I actually get the prize?
JL  +   1546d ago | Helpful
Barring any setbacks, prizes are usually sent out around the mid-point of the month and, depending on where you live, could take up to 2 weeks to ship. Obviously, not even that long if you live somewhere like the United States or so.

That means August winners can typically expect prizes somewhere in the second-half of September by the latest.
Urrakia34  +   1546d ago
So then we're going to receive physical gift cards? I thought we were going to be sent an activation code or something by e-mail.
JL  +   1546d ago | Helpful
Apologies. In the case of gift cards or cash prizes, those are done digitally via paypal or an email giftcard. So you dont have to wait the extra time for shipping. They still get processed at the same time as all physical prizes though.
christheredhead  +   1546d ago
this is my first time winning so that info was helpful. thanks.
Urrakia34  +   1546d ago
Ahhh that clears things up. Thanks _JL_.
mindedone  +   1545d ago

Urrakia34  +   1545d ago
