New Contest: Gambler's Trivia Game! WIN CL CHIPS!

50 replies • Last post

Hello CL Friends,

Here is your chance to win a whopping 100 CL Chips!

I am posting some trivia questions for you that are related to one of our favorite subjects here: gambling!

The rules are simple. Just follow the directions for each of the 15 questions and come up with your best answer. Whoever gets the most correct answers will win some Casino Listings chips to add to your balance. In the event of a tie, I will be choosing the winner by random generator.

You may copy and paste the questions and place your answers after the questions or you may list the numbers and answer according to the numbers and letters: whatever works for you!

PM answers to me with subject line GAMBLER'S TRIVIA CONTEST ANSWERS

At first glance, this might seem like a lot to do, but you can search for a few answers at a time and possibly learn something new each day! We are providing you with plenty of time to do so. If you search for two to three questions each day, you will be ahead of the game by the end of the two weeks.

This contest will run until Saturday, March 8, 2013, at midnight (CST).

Total Points = 30 points
Bonus points possible = 6
Final possible total points = 36 points

Now get busy, and and get ready to win a generous amount of CL chips! Smile

Thank you, CL-Ed!

Ya know what? I was thinking that, but maybe a better idea would be to PM the answers to me? That way other players would not see your answers.

CL Friends, I need your input here. Do you think PMing your FINAL answers, by the deadlines makes more sense and keeps it fair?

Either that or everyone could post answers on the last day, but I am leaning toward the PM thing. Smile

Thanks, LuckyMe! Smile

Are you sure? All my message say "edit" at the bottom.

But if you can't that is okay.

We will just TRUST everyone to go search for their own answers.

But try hitting the edit button under your post, then you should be able to highlight and cut, then paste in a PM or in a word document and then into the PM.

Can you try once more?

If not, don't worry. It's not the end of the world. lol I should have said PM to begin with. I didn't think you would post your answers so quickly. Like I said you are too fast for me, lol! But truly, it is nothing to stress about. Smile

Lol! Thank you, both! And I can handle those class clowns, BF. My youngest son was also one of those and now he does comedy. Funny, huh? lol At least he put it to good use. I still have to answer your PM about that, but not tonight: nursing a headache (but I will be FINE).

I hope to get some more entries for this contest, or you will have no competition, BF!

Have a great Friday night, everyone. Smile
