haha nice post admin, yeah it was bound to happens somebody would see it as something other than a coincidence lol. It is just luck guys, he might have bought 5k tickets or even have just two tickets and with luck he managed to win both of them. So just pray to be lucky next time. Maybe buy 3 tickets and win 3 times?
Anyway bowie1984 congratulations to you hope you used those mob points carefully, you just got a nice bankroll. Cheers!!

BOWIE...... Nice one.... You had at least two tickets and therefore you stood every chance of winning at least two prizes. Hopefully the 100 will compensate nicely for your buy ins this week and any previous weeks that you ave bought in!
Honestly I went all in with my points. I took admins advice from two weeks back (when I harshly fought against it) - if your tickets percentage dominates the pool, you got yourself quite the odds to win despite all the entries from the weekly calendar. SO I DID JUST WHAT I THOUGHT WOULDNT BE WORKING IN A MILLION YEARS.
I was wrong. I won. You dont need to congratulate (nor blame). It was luck (and the odds working for me this time).
Posted by vic75: How many tickets did you buy?? i bought once 1600 tickets and nothing
I bought 3000 tickets and won another 100 on the calendar. I got 3100 ticks in the pool this week.
The previous weeks twice I bought 500 ticks and just didnt worked and won a couple 100 ticks with the calendar but they were bust too, so I decided to risk my only winning here (mobsafe - 30$) to buy big. Also I cant see myself to earn another thousands here by replying topics, so it was kind of my swan song too. I will remain active member, but I wont spend the usual amount of time flaming out over nonsense like I did multiple times before. Good luck to anybody who decides pouring over the pool with every point they have is the way to go.

Congratulations on your win. No doubt was a great investments of mob points that besides your original thoughts paid off and with a very good profit. Some have failed though with even the maximum amount of points.

Congratulations bowie1984! This is amazing starting bankroll! You were very lucky! Last year I bought 1600 tickets, but I didn't win. So, that it is why I don't want to risk again and waste all of my points.
You did it very well! You have a lot of calendar winnings as well! That's cool. I have won only two times at the calendar: 50 MobSafe shots and 200 MobPoints.
Spend your money wisely and win huge tournaments with higher buy in!

Congratulations to you for winning the mob draw. To risk buying 3000 tickets you fully deserve to win the draw twice and i hope that you can turn your winnings into something more substantial and please let us know how you get on at the tables

Luck... Or a lot of mobpoints invested. You know you only need one ticket to win the prize, but the more tickets you have the more chances you'll get to receive a prize. And, if there's two prizes available and you win the first, the other tickets you have will enter in the draw for the second prize. That's how it works, that's what turns it possible, you just have to play. It's like being at the tables: if you have a bigger stack than your opponents, that means you haver better chances to win them.
