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

50 replies • Last post
Click to show this thread's original 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! πŸ™‚

Thank you, CL-Ed!

With all the research you do online, I bet it would not take you long at all. You are good at "stuff" like this! Maybe next time. 😒

Thank you, BF. Now I have to work on generating interest and participation for the next contest(s).

So glad you won and I hope you find something good to reward yourself with when you spend your CL Chips. πŸ™‚ Maybe you can order some old horror movies off Amazon and/or some good music. lol

Congrats Bf!

Thanks for having the contest CL, even though I didn't participate this time. I did enjoy the last one where we played casino games and posted our screenshot for our highest total.

I think his was C-5 and C-6. How is Tammy doing now? How long ago did she have the surgery if you don't mind me asking? He's doing little to nothing. He hasn't even been out of the house in almost 10 days. No bending, no twisting, no looking down.

I hope she fully recovers. Does she think the numbness in her arm is from the surgery, or did she have another injury?

My boyfriend is having spasms in his throat. He has already choked on food a couple of times. We went to the ENT doc today and he said he thinks it's a temporary problem. I certainly hope so. People who have their health don't realize how much it's worth until it's gone. Hoping Tammy fully recovers. πŸ™‚
