Unfortunately I'm not resident of US or Canada, so .... good luck to all "competitors".
But on the other hand, I already own TS 55 REBQ.  [cool]

Final bump. Deadline to enter is in just 2½ hours. One of the recent sweeps was won by someone who entered in the last 15 minutes. Good luck to everyone!

I have notified the winner by email but have not heard back. I don't publish the winner until we receive their signed affidavit. It was not a FOG member .

New drawings every month. This month a PS 300 and CT. Good luck!

Well, you guys might be in luck. Our randomly selected winner has yet to have responded to multiple emails. If I don't hear from him by 5/15, another winner will be selected.

In the mean time, go enter for the PS 300 + CT.

 [laughing] Me too! I am afraid that if I am selected that the email will be filtered as spam, so I am constantly checking my spam folder at the beginning of each month  [scared]

The site will only accept one entry per person. Even if you try to enter multiple times, only one is counted. Attempting to "fake out" the system with extra entries will result in disqualification.

So, how many entries do you get per month on average? Just trying to figure out the chances...

I think that was asked earlier in this thread, or another one about the sweepstakes.

We're not going to publish information about the number of entries, plus it varies from month to month. I can say that several winners recently I noticed had entered 5+ months. So, entering every month is a way to increase your odds, as well as completing the optional second step with your address, etc.

Your odds if you don't enter are zero.  [big grin]

No, the odds are the same if the number of entries are the same.

Hey Guys and Gals,

If you haven't already entered the Festool Sweepstakes for the month of May - you better hurry because today is the last day!  Here is the website:  A Chance to Win a PS300 Jigsaw and a CT-36 .

Good Luck!

Your odds of winning the specific month you enter are the same if you only enter once.  However, if you enter every month, your odds of ever winning increase.

Actually.....
Mathematically, you do not increase the odds because you enter every month. Just like you don't see a mathematical difference in flipping a coin for heads or tails multiple times to get one or the other. The odds remain 50% for either heads or tails no matter how many times you flip the coin.

The same holds true for sweepstakes and lotteries. The odds don't change, you just have NO odds if you don't enter. Same chance every time if the number of entries remains consistent.

To illustrate, I once sat at a baccarat table in Reno, Nevada and watched the winner go to the Player side 17 times in a row...even though the "odds" favor the banker side.

Now... I don't need the jigsaw, so if someone wants to give me their entry, I'll take the CT36 and give  you the jigsaw if I win!  That truly DOES double my odds!  ;D

We're really debating over semantics, but it's entertaining, so we'll keep it going.

We are in agreement that the odds of winning a specific month are constant regardless of how many months you enter (assuming constant # of entries).

However, if there are 12 sweepstakes in a year, your odds of winning *something* that year are significantly higher if you enter all 12 sweepstakes vs only entering one.
