I was wondering if there is somekind of calculation regarding how many entries are required on average to win an item around here?

If every giveaway you enter has N entries, you'll need to enter an average of N such giveaways to win. Of course, you could win much earlier or much later.

The amount of luck / (entries * amount of games gifted) + your total amount of entries.

Depends on your contribution points.

It's probability theory, nothing else. Let's say you enter a giveaway with 800 people participating. So on average you would win every 800th game (provided you have entered infinite amount of times).

P.S. my first win was around 600-700 entries

well entries are way over 400 and no wins, so i was just wondering :)

@OverwatchSoldier how do you receive contribution points and in what way does that affect the chances of winning?

You make giveaways. There is contributer giveaways that have a ton LESS entries, so it increases your chances of winning.

Your odds of winning are the same as anyone else's. No matter what you do, your chances won't increase.

I've found that for myself I win a raffle every 300 or 400 entries

The first part is so true. But the "every 300-400" entries part differs because of what giveaways you enter. I have 860 entries and 6 wins, but 2 of those wins were a private giveaway. One had only one entry because it was a gift.

I wont my first ~1.1k. This also seems to be roughly the point at which many 'unlucky' people win their first one too.

I meant start posting your opinion. Post comments that aren't just "ty", reply to someone's topic that you agree with. Earn some friends, and good luck will come your way. I don't know if you were joking or not, but begging and annoying is NOT the way to go.

Depends on what giveaways you enter. If the giveaways you join have an average of 400 entries you will win once every 400 times you enter (on average). If you enter giveaways with avg. 1000 entries you will win every 1000th entrie on average.

Even though it's always purely random, obviously there's a (theoretical) way to calculate the average by just adding up the number of entries for everyone until their first win, then dividing by the number of members. Of course this doesn't take into account private or group giveaways, but still...

You can't win. The system is fake. Only some poeple, choosen by the admins, will win.

This is why i have 1,265 entrys but not won yet.

My first (and only) win was about 280 entries. I've contributed 6 games to this site before even winning one so I didn't enter public giveaways just contribution/private puzzle giveaways.
