How could that happen for people to win two and more prizes and im trying to win since it started and i never won anything!! :( :( :( :( :( it is very frustrated i even started to lose hope in this game! ūüėē¬†

 

don't worry, i am right there with you. I kind of wish the raffle was a 1-win only, and once you win that's it, so that other people have a chance too xP every time i see a purebred prize dragon i feel a stab of anger and despair xD

I won! I got an email notification on my phone that said July dragon r... and thought it was for the the July dragon release thread. I certainly wasn't expecting this, now if only my new release eggs would hatch so I have space for it. I did decide when the raffles were announced that if I ever won one I'd give the first shiny egg I breed from it away

 

Congrats @Chaos Rider and other winners!

I know it's gonna sound odd but I kinda wish that for each repeat win an extra prize is handed out to someone else, mitigating the issue without excluding anyone.

That sounds great, actually. Eventually, DC will swim in Prizes! :D

i'm okay with that :P more prizes = more reasonable trading opportunities instead of the constant 'you can only get a 2nd gen if you already HAVE a Cb prize to breed 2nd gens with'

 

i dont' need or want super-exclusive dragons. I just want the lineages i want to make xD but it is very hard to get a prize dragon of the lineages i want, because i cannot afford what people demand for 2nd gen prize eggs and no one breeds with the mates i desire

Same here. I gave up on one of my lineage dreams due to that, despite the constant influx of new Prizes ...

(and I'd only want certain 3rd gens ... but if the 2nd gens don't exist, no chance!)

No win here. Maybe next year at this rate...

I know this all too well. I think I had to sever my left arm and dig out my kidney to get a 2nd Gen from my favorite DC breed. I understand how hard it is for Prizes to throw Prizes, especially from that particular breed, but, still. I would have settled for a 3rd Gen, but no one bred a 2nd Gen from that kind of line to begin with, so that put that idea out of my mind.

If I ever won a Prize, they'd be mainly gifted or given away through a raffle-type thing. The only other thing I'd do with my babies would be make lines I actually want. At least, my other kidney would be safe at that point.

that's all i want xD i just want hte checkers and spirals i imagine in my mind. I'd use 2nd gens to trade for 2nd gens of other pairings i want. Then? Then i dont' need to trade. I don't need neglecteds, i don't need other rares. I'll gift away the eggs

I would go by how many people clicked the new releases, which is currently 1,117 clicks for the first Spot Hatch from active IPs.

Assuming not every active player clicked the new hatchlings, we can guess winning chance is 60/1500, which comes out to 4/100 = 4%

 

This is just an ill-informed guess, however, so maintain some hope.

It might be closer to look at Unique views...for one of the siyats, it is

Unique views:5,733

Possibly someone looked at them from more than one location/IP address, but still, a lot of people.  No telling how many enter the raffle, but probably a lot.

I've said this before, but handing out some of the most valuable dragons through random chance seems stupid.

Isn't that how lotteries work, though? They dish out millions of bucks at once, too!

Just don't play them, then. I'm sure you have other means of acquiring those millions of bucks. I don't.

Frankly speaking, all method to get rares with 'your own' depends on luck, isn't it? Luck matters on finding them in cave or breeding them.

They have negative expected value.

Well, partly. Cave grabbing is somewhat skill-based (clicking fast).
