I just wanted to congratulate the winners of all the raffles.  However, I have a serious question for the 3 to 5 people that seem to be luckier than me and win on a much more regular basis, like sometimes every week.  How many tickets do you have in the drawing every week to get those kind of results?  I am not complaining you earned it, I just want to increase my returns on this site.


Thank you,


Z

Some people have no lives and spend 16 hours a day on the site or computer in general,  so they have lots of tickets.   Bots are a good possibility as well.   That is what killed the original digging game really... well that and other issues.

Although I think it would be a bit harder to do a slego bot, unless it was very crude and you just hoped that occasionally something 'fell' into the right place.

I'm pretty sure there are hacks for this game. So I'm guessing people are using them.
There always is the possibility of shills.

I truly hope that you are wrong about the hacks/bots.  In the case that none of you are, is there anyway to notify Tia or do you think she already sees this?  I do not want to cry foul if these people are getting the tickets by doing work but if they use bots that does not seem to be the idea of the site and it would be nice to see those people removed.  Like I said in my first post it seems to be only about 3-5 people.

Bots unfortunately are fairly easy to do for anyone with even an apprentice level of programming skills.

They can also be downloaded for free as well,  hence the auto clicker issue with the digging game.

Report them,  ahh, hard to say.   There really is no way for you to KNOW that a person who has won often is a bot user.  Squealing just because of a hunch, really is not cool either TBH.

I honestly don't know if there really is a huge concern about bot users and or spammers and others who abuse the system.  Here and pretty much any other place, you really don't see a lot of action, if any, taken against these folks unless they are really going to stupid extremes.

It's kind of a rough battle too, they bot, you 'fix it' they figure out a different way.  Now throw in the fact that most programmers typically are very creative, but lazy as hell.   That is why you will often see a ton of new stuff but rarely a fix of a bug.  EU is a prime example of that.  They are not going to throw a ton of time at fixing a 'small' problem, especially if that problem is still bringing money to them.  As much as we hate it, that's just the way it is.

That's been going on for about the 10 years I've been playing this game. You'll see the difference when they are losing money - instant fix.

I can see my dismal chances now, almost 1k tickets and I have 2. Ha, good luck right?

One important point that has not yet been addressed in this thread is that you can earn PED while playing SLEGO. I know, it seems so obvious but I guarantee earning 1 PED a day is not only do-able but rather common. Yes, you will have to learn how to play a bit better than just hitting the big crosses for points but the time is well worth the effort. I, for one, quite enjoy all the silly strategies I have used and abandoned only to rediscover them and play them a bit differently later.

Also, the new monitoring feature will aid in your SLEGO-PED earning endeavors. Often you will see three different accounts playing the pieces exactly the same way and earning regular 0.1PED while doing so. Are said accounts botting? Possibly, but at least you can see how they played the pieces. You learn from that and get the PED (or whatever your game currency is).

I have had as many as 50+ tickets, multiple times, in a Daily SLEGO drawing and didn't win. But the 5+ PED I earned getting those tickets added up fast so I could cash out and make up for my not unique ability of blowing my PED while playing EU.

A final note, a SLEGO game is approximately 6 minutes: this means you can play approximately 10 games an hour. And, in 12 hours, you can potentially play 120 games. If all of those games yield at least a daily raffle ticket then, at most and highly unlikely, a single account can have 120 daily tickets per day. Generally, the TOTAL daily raffle ticket count is 1000-1500 tickets to 120 tickets per account is roughly 10% of the daily tickets, so then those are the rough odds. Take this one step further to the possible weekly raffle ticket count for one account: 7x120 = 840. That 840 number only works if EVERY game that is played results in a weekly raffle ticket. My observations and experience put the weekly raffle ticket numbers below 50% of my daily raffle ticket count if I have played SLEGO the same amount of time each day and earned roughly the same amount of tickets each day. Therefore, 420 tickets per week with a rough weekly total of 3500 tickets means you have a 12% chance of winning a weekly raffle (yes I know there are three prizes but you will see that once the first name is drawn that account doesn't win a second prize).

Those are the numbers as I calculate from the available information. There may be something I have missed but it won't change the base results by an order of magnitude. Though, multiple accounts is highly possible and probably for those who wish to game, cheat, the system. Someone else can go after that...

Yeah, I appreciate your post, I found it very thorough.  Yeah, watching other people's games taught me how to play better.  Basically, for anyone who doesn't know, in SLEGO, you play the corners, and try to leave room around the blocks of various colors.  Sometimes it is luck, but there is skill involved.  It is worth it to put some time into what your strategy is.

I just reread the entire post again, after some time went by.  I still play SLEGO from time to time, and enjoy it.  After about three games, my head goes a little bonkers, haha.  So then I take a break, and play again.  I find SLEGO really challenging, and fun, and enjoy the concentration level required to play it.  However, it does interfere a little with actually playing the game of Entropia Universe.  I've found that sweating and SLEGO go together pretty well.  I've come close to a .5 win, but I've only gotten less than ten 0.01 wins so far, but I'll keep trying, and having fun, which is the whole point of video games.  I don't worry about bots at this point, or people who try to cheat,  I just worry about my gameplay, and how I'm doing.  Cheaters only cheat themselves, and I'm here to have a really good time.  See you guys around.  Cheers.

Thank you for the gratz. Big smile. If I remember correctly, I had accumulated only 8 weekly raffle tickets.

At this point, I expect never ever to win a Daily or Weekly raffle.  I think my chances of winning the California Lottery are greater to find a winning ticket on the sidewalk that someone dropped than of ever winning a raffle in SLEGO.
     I don't play as much SLEGO as I used to, because I can't even think in words after playing a couple of games, it melts my head so much.  It interferes with the writing of such wonderful posts as this one, haha.
     Who wants to play SLEGO anyhow, when Entropia Universe is such a good game?  SLEGO just gets in the way.  I found I make more money actually playing EU, than by playing a puzzle game that I never win at.
     Plus, I am finding other ways to make money to support my EU habit, so I don't have to deal with SLEGO, or CrowdFlower, which is a hideous survey service that seems rather manipulative to me, as a grown adult.
