Your chance of winning is simple math.
You entered 167 giveaways, most win only after entering 1000+.
If you want to get higher chances, you can
Edit: Assuming you entered only public giveaways with 1000 entries, you chances to have won something after 167 giveaways is about 15%.
I for example have won ~1.06% of all the giveaways I have entered, so good luck.
yes that happen to be 600+ games :P now i feel worst about myself :steamfaceplam:
well.. 600 out of 60000 entered. Youve entered 167 GA...its simple math
also - create giveaways yourself. Youll get higher level and will be able to enter more giveaways. Its all in FAQ
Plus he gave away over 2000 games...
Check out Unlucky-7 and playing appreciated. Read the requirements on the forum group page and join these groups. You can also find GAs in the forum. If you make a small giveaway, it will get you to level 1 which also increases your chances. But make up your mind if you really want to play the games you try to win.
Read the steamgifts FAQ and guidelines to stay away from trouble if you haven´t already.
I have won ~0,24% of all the GAs i have entered. And i only finished 50% of them so far to be honest.
thanks i think i understand now what was it that i was doing wrong
When the Giveaway you want is about to end (last 1 minute or so, longer better withing 5 minutes), Google Gaben's picture and stare at it (With your best smile of course). If he smiles back, your win rate will increase dramatically. It works!!
Yeah, tell me about it. Haven't won a single thing here for over a year now. -.-
thanks that actually made me feel better im not alone here :D
I've entered around 30 giveaways in the past 3 months and didn't win anything! This site is rigged.
You're a patron too, doesn't that come with better odds? /s
Crossbourne was being sarcastic, because the OP has made a very small effort to win, and still complains. To answer your question, though, no, everyone has an equal chance at winning.
I was being sarcastic too ;) (hence the /s but I guess you must not reddit)
Ah. Nah, I don't do reddit.

looking at my profile i got 44 wins for 29 999 ga entered over 5 years so i'm not really better actually lol (though i guess it depends of how many low-entry gas you entered)
Real CV is around 9000, I think, so nowhere near that displayed amount.
I haven't won anything for a year and eight months, got my first win after around 1700 entries (a year) if I remember correctly, and got 7 games for 7600 entries (4 of them were group/private giveaways with 4 to 383 entries). Oh, and stats say that I'm unlucky and that I should have won 4 games more (so I've won 7*100/11 = 63% of the games I should have won).
If you are picky with your entries, are in few/no Steam groups, have not a high SteamGifts level and probably not whitelisted by thousands of members and don't enter private giveaways, you have to be prepared to get very few games here.
If you really want to get more/lots of games, you can start to giveaway to increase a little bit your level, be nice to maybe get whitelisted by some members, join some Steam groups (like Unlucky-7, Playing appreciated as Digge said above), read the topics to enter some private giveaways. And if you are desperate, you can also enter the giveways that give 20 000 copies of games than no one would play for 50-100% win.
Perseverance is the answer, my odds are lower than 1% based on my winnings/entries rate but I keep entering cause I know at some point I'll win something. :D
Click enter, keep on clicking, click some more.
which I'm not sure works
hope to idle ❤️️
xdd there is no tip look at me profile :)
Have luck and be patient. Also create some giveaways so you level up and get access to more giveaways nut that's optional.
It's all about RNG. Some people get wins on their first day and some don't. Give it about a month and 1K plus entries and then come back and ask this same question.
Two weeks and 167 entries is not too much time to complain. Some people here are luckier than others, yes. But it does happen.
And then there are others that go stretches between wins. Some users here have gone a year or more between winning. I've gone two months between wins at times. So it won't happen all the time. Try entering smaller GA's. Not wishlist only ones. Just NEVER go into a GA thinking you will win. No expectations, no disappointment.
the higher the level and/or smaller the group or wishlist, the less who enter, hence the higher your chance
regardless of the odds, who wins is still up to random chance, I've lost with only 2 entrants 😁
Do not be sad. you have very little time registered on the site. I won my first game more than a month after registering.
Even now in the last year I rarely win more than two games a month.
Don't expect to win what you enter for, be pleasantly surprised when it eventually does happen. Its all up to RNG as everyone said but you can enter more exclusive giveaways (higher level and group giveaways) to improve your chances.
Just checked mine and noticed I only won 49 games and entered 15.9k giveaways now, in total I only have won 0.308% of them, so dont give up!II (I only enter level 0 giveaways too)
Keep trying and you will win. If you do not maximize your odds as suggested by Oppenh4imer, then you will need to enter more GAs to win.
A guide to winning on SteamGifts, for new users
Don´t know if people have already have said it :)
But it probably boils down to 4 things
I will tell you a secret. When you enter the giveaway, you can see the number of current participants. You need to be there right when the giveaway is created, and you need to be 16th or 17th entrant. That increase chances to win tremendously. Good luck!
Well, this is my stats

enter to win games you really want.
win some day...
"other people's profile they always win up 1k to 3k games on this very site"
They definitely don't ALWAYS win that much. I'd say those numbers are outliers at best.
Anyway, enter g/a's and host your own. Your odds will increase.
And what's that point of making a giveaway only for people above lvl 1? I dont get it!
It's to reward those that have given at least a fair bit back to the community. Or so is said.
Too many bots and trolls on lower levels. Not to imply there aren't bots on higher levels, but you are much less likely to run into them.
