    Hi there

    I don't work for HEXUS, and I'm not involved in the competitions, but as far as I know you should have a chance to win.

    If you look on Competition Winners you will see a lot of worldwide winners, so as long as the competition is open worldwide (check the competition page to see if the countries are restricted), you can have a chance wherever you're from.

    I think that many of these sorts of prizes are shipped to the winners from the manufacturer.

    Re: How winners will be picked?

    all i can say is have a look at the number of entries from across the world and then look at EU and North American entries which will make up a large proportion of those entries = more chance of someone from those continent's wining imo so it's not a case of the compititions sucking, the comipitions are great and you have to be in it to win it! i have entered just about every Hexus compitition and have won nothing but you won't hear me complaining about it as it cost you and me the price of the electricity to run the tech on and about 2 minutes of your time to complete the entry...

    Re: How winners will be picked?

    I enter with the hope of winning and at this point havent been so lucky yet! Im hoping sooner or later Ill have my day but until then Ill keep trying ! Of course there is a lot of competition being worldwide on some of the giveaways so you can expect that its like entering the lottery but being a fan of Hexus I refuse to give up! One question I do have does Hexus contact the Winners and let them know they have Won!????

    If you've been a member for 6 months and haven't bothered to contribute a single constructive post to the forum then, pardon me for saying so but, I hope you never win.

    That just reflects the fact that as a UK based site, the majority of entries will come from the UK, Europe and US - therefore the chances of a winner coming from one of those regions is statistically higher. (Say there were 10 entries, 9 from UK, one from the US - every individual has an equal (1 in 10) chance of winning, but there is a 9 in 10 chance that the winner would be in the UK.)

    As DR says:

    Its a fundamental flaw in peoples understanding of randomness.

    A lot of people dont understand the having a 10% chance of something happening isnt the same as doing something 10 times will always give you something once.
