 Look at it mathematically. 6619 total entries. I think the maximum number an individual could earn was 47.

 

47/6619 = 0.007 * 100 = 0.7% chance

 

Those are thin odds for even the highest ticket holders.  So, even if you had 6 entries (a minimal effort to say the least) your 0.1% chance of winning isn't TOO far off from the highest holder.

 

In short... it's really anyone's game!

Lol I had done the math right from the beginning, but I'm glad that you posted that to give everyone a bit of hope!

I don't know ... but that could be a decent enough reason for the delay. They contacted the winner and are waiting for them to respond before an official announcement

Last post I saw from Adam yesterday said he was still validating entries.  I guess some folks claimed certain entries that were not really earned.  Sounds like he's trying to make sure that the drawing is fair and folks don't win by claiming extra entries.  As noted in the math, not a high chance for any of us, but I'm fine with whatever delay is required to make sure it is as fair as possible for all!

May the odds be ever in your favor!

As much as all of us would love to win an excellent new camera. I would suggest that we all have already won a prize when we discovered and joined this forum. Hopefully the enthusiasm for the site will continue into the future, when this camera draw is a distant memory, and we will all benefit by the tips, knowledge, blogs that people share, plus the opportunity to exhibit our images obtaining constructive, honest feedback. Not forgetting the chance to ask the most silly question in the world and have folk answer it with much grace. Thank you everyone for the prize I have already received from being a member of this forum.
