Lookout
Hi

Just wondering how winners are drawn. This month 3 sets of winners with same surname. This happens quite regularly. Can you explain please.

Thanks

@Shaneycool Hi there, Welcome to the 3community. I'm one of the Mods and winners are picked at random, as long as they fit the competition criteria ( three customer, over 18 and so on ). Once they are picked we call the lucky person and ask permission to publish their name. @billbond4 Would you believe it, we do have a spinning wheel 😜

@Shaneycool @There are 6 people in my office with same surname as me out of 85 employees. One of the winners reached out to the mods here to say she was waiting on her prize and wanted to know when to expect it. That's not the first post from a winner either. I think the only way winners can be chosen is by randomly picking the names because all you have to do is click a button and you're entered. Ireland isn't that big so if each month there's a "Kelly" or an O Brien" thats not unusual considering how common those surnames are, right

Re: How are winners drawn.... exact process

the comps can only be entered by 3 customers so that reduces that number significantly.

Only 4.8 million people in the republic, so that's shaved a few million off

It would be cool if three had a massive spin the wheel like on winning streak with peoples phone numbers on it.
Probably would be too big to spin though
