Match & Win Contest Is "Rigged"

Match & Win Contest Is "Rigged"

Postby Wookieegonewild » Sun Oct 25, 2015 1:31 pm

While on the contest page for the Match & Win contest I have taken a look at the easily viewable source code for the page everyday that it is been available. Within the source are the following lines of code...

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

</div>
</div>
</div>


<div class="outcome_language">
<h4 class="lose">YOU WERE SO CLOSE!</h4>
<p class="lose">Come back every day through November 25, 2016 for another chance to win.</p>
________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Simply put, those lines of code are on the page everyday which means all three possible choices each day are losers. Meaning there is no way to win, which is backed by the last portion of the code that essentially states the outcome is always a lose.

I can't explain it any more simple than that. So does someone at Tracfone want to explain what is going on?

Wow, thanks for sharing this. I can't believe they would rig this contest. I wonder if there will be zero winners then? Or maybe they will change it and allow a few winners at some point.

I agree, I looked at the source code for today's game and each image for all three choices was "Not a Match".

Unless there is some other trickery in the two Javascript files that somehow switch an image to "Match" after an onclick() instance, I think my page just gets served up a guaranteed loser.

Will be interesting to read the list of winners when they get posted:

For security, they probably determine the outcome on the server and then serve you either a winning or losing page. It would still be a random outcome while avoiding the possibility of people winning by modifying the JavaScript.

Has anyone won?

I figured out that it was just a scam by simply choosing the same box every time I played, and getting the same" not a match" b.s. message every time.

That's a shame and hard to believe. Any resolution yet?
