"Ice Break Comp regarding location of winners"

I noticed in todays pn's that the majority of winners were from Queensland and couple from Victoria.

So I sent them an email..saying that I think it looks a bit suspicious and that I don't think that they are giving the rest of the states a fair go.
Surprisingly I received a phone call just after 9am from Pauls lady.
She said that the majority of sales are in Queensland.
I said that they could work it better to give every state a chance...She said that it is computer generated and that's not possible.
I think she is wrong....Why can't they work it from your postcode..isn't that why we put postcodes into the sms?

Anyone know how they work these sms comps?:)

in qld is where the milk is made and alot more available.. so there would be crapload more entries from QLd than other states.. so i don't think its unfair.. its just qld'ers have more entries in...

Yeah Ive noticed everytime Im on the Gold Coast that this milk is very very popular, my hubby even drinks it whilst we are there.

Qld always feature heavily as winners and their comps and I would consider it stranger if there were no Qld winners

It is no different than say to Farmers Union comp last year most of the winners I think were from SA, the market share there was way higher than for other states, it is very difficult to get Farmers Union were I live, but ice-break is everywhere here. Plus there is also a large number of compers in Qld. If they published the ratio of entries per state etc it would probably all work out!!!

On the sunrise comp this morning the five winners were listed and of the five, 3 where from Victoria same thing why should Vic get three winners....its just the way it works!!!!

When the world says give up


try it one more time.......

I agree with you that the more sales in a state the more winners they would get...but I think it might have been the V drink comp...where they divided the wins between the states.
Couldn't they do that with a comp like this as well?

Thanks to all

I don't see how it can be unfair when it's an instant win comp...when all it takes is for you to sms at the right time to be a winner...

ive bought probably 500 hundred entries worth in all the various comps over the years.. plus 100s more that aren't in comp times.. never won a thing from them and i'm in qld!

Does anyone know if they announced the two winners of the iphones on the members section of their website? There was a 25 wol comp for members, and I have seen and heard nothing?

This is exactly what I said on the other post for the comp.

If they have the Lions Share of the Market then thats fair enough. Farmers Union have a simular comp, I expect most winners to be from SA simply becasue they have the stronghold of the market here. Anywhere, supermarkets or shops, the shelves are loaded up with Farmers Union with very little shelf space dedicated to the other varieties. I expect each state will have their favourite drink.

I had never eaven heard of Ice Break before the comp and it took me days to even find it . Now I look for it an there is only a handful on the shelves.

LOL....see youve got lots of competiton. QLD'ers love Ice Break.....SA'lians love Farmers Union

There was a comp on Sunrise a few weeks back, I think it was for a Kitchenaid pack....every daily winner was from QLD. Thats it...Im moving.
