I have played HSN arcade for years and never won anything, so after i use up my tickets i will no longer play arcade. SHOPPING always but enough of the arcade. time to move on
Once again, check the news…just this week a 19 year old girl in CA won $555,000.00 on a lottery scratch ticket. Same week on a different scratch game she won $100,000.00. Highly improbable but not impossible.
And that is not the only time its happened. . The arcade is just like the lottery, or bingo …games of chance.
I say more power to repeat winners! Gives a person something to look forward to.
I agree, especially with everyone saying the arcade winners are RIGGED! Spoke with someone who knows statistics, odds of winning, etc., and they agreed with everyone who has been suspicious. It’s HIGHLY improbable for a person to win twice, and IMPOSSIBLE for them to win 3 times in one drawing. So unfortunate, but looks like it’s truly rigged.
We are not talking about one drawing here. We are talking about multiple, independent drawings. The odds of winning one are not affected by the odds of winning another. It may be improbable that someone would win twice and the odds may be astronomical to win more than that; but that doesn’t make it impossible. Personally I’ve won 4 times in the drawings over a period of 3 or 4 years–each time I won twice within a couple of months. It’s possible the randomness of the drawings is not perfect, but they are certainly not rigged–especially not for particular people. As Trekky has pointed out, even lottery winners sometimes win multiple times. If they didn’t, you’d have to be a fool to continue to buy lottery tickets after you won something; and if people quit buying after they won, the lottery would die.
If the only reason you play in the Arcade is to win something, you’re wasting a lot of time. First of all, you don’t have to have tickets to enter, so you don’t need to play. Second the prizes are simply icing on the cake for playing games you enjoy.
I guess there are two ways to look at the arcade…1. You play to try to win prizes. and 2. You play because it is fun. If you don’t win and it isn’t fun then I guess you quit playing. Sorry to see you leave. Have fun shopping though.
To make a long story short: Your a hoot!
