    Comforting to hear from other no-winners.
    (When I was about 6 or 7, in Finland, I won 50 Finnish Marks from some Donald Duck cartoon magazine competition. Only to be cruelly introduced to the Finnish tax reality when I got only 18.50 Marks in my hand, because tax had had to be levied of course. FML...)

    I did a back-of the envelope calculation at the start and thought it was probably as good as 1 in 100 or better for the smaller prices. But I won nothing. And entered everything. Has there been any audit to show if the draws actually took place and winners actually got prizes?

    Fair bit of auditing for the larger draws. I have participated in the monitoring of a couple of these licensed lucky draws and it is quite well regulated. Not saying the random number generators could be NEVER rigged... odds are against that though.
