EDIT: I regret making this.

If you're joining giveaways with 100s - 1000s of entrants (or any giveaway), expecting to win, you're in for a lot of disappointment. It's not unusual to take thousands of entries before you win anything.

There are giveaway groups out there that may give you better odds, but you'll have to check the discussions to find them.

You'll also find various puzzles from the discussions which will lead to giveaways. These tend to have less entrants, giving you more chance of winning, but you have to put in a little effort to get there :)

It is straight probability. F.e. if you entering GAs which ends with 1000 entries in average, then you need to enter 1000 such GA to have 50% chance to win. Of course if you are lucky you can win with 1 entry and if you unlucky then...

Of course the lower entries in GA the higher chances = higher levels, forum hiden GA or groups increases chances.

You're right in that it's straight probability, but you need to enter 693 giveaways with 1000 entries to have a 50% chance of winning

Yes. You are right. I just used common sense not calculation. 0,999^693 give 49,99% (chance of failure)

Wanted to see how many you had won, almost 200? That`s way above average, why so negative? Kinda explains why you were already on my blacklist I guess :p

time to leave sg and find a site with less than 100 members.

You have entered 191 giveaways. Does the average giveaway you enter have less than 191 entries? Winners are chosen at random from all the entrants. If you are entering 1 copy giveaways with thousands of entrants, you will statistically need to enter thousands of giveaways to win 1. You can increase you chances of winning by entering giveaways with less entrants. There are various ways to do this. You can give away games to increase your level or enter in group, invite only, or whitelist giveaways. There is a lot of good information about how this site works in the FAQ.

I would be worried only at a few thousands to ten thousand entries without win...

try joining private or group giveaways. they usually have less entries than the public ones. less entries = more chances of winning.
also, be patient. it takes a while before getting your first win. that being said, welcome to the site! :)

This is normal. Based on SG statistics, I win an average of one giveaway out of 639 (7/4475)
So join giveaways more often, you will have more prizes.

getting impatient already? Check people's stats.
It's basic chance calculation. At level 0 you'll be entering GA's with hundreds of participants. Do the math.

That's not how probability works, you seriously expect a win every hundred entries?

Do the math, really basic stuff, and calculate how many wins you are expected to have had.
