Hope no topic about it has been posted yet again !! but has anyone won off of it yet, and what did you win, and how many tries did it take you to finally win? If some doesn't know what it is, its a game in the Sales and Special App.

Not me. I've 'scratched' every day, but haven't won anything yet.

No. Those leaderboards are forged. Whoever designed that thing is just sitting at home in an armchair next to a roaring fire, drinking whiskey whilst smoking a pipe and laughing diabolically. "We'll make millions off of the chain reaction!" All the Gears fans will have no doubt been tempted by the amazing offers currently available. >.< I eagerly await what wonders the "Mystery Wheel" shall bring.

Not me, I've been trying all week and I just can't seem to win at the moment. I don't even know what the prize is, I just want something!

Good luck to anyone who tries to win, you'll have better luck winning a real scratch and win.

I'm with you. I'm curious as to where this is.

EDIT: Go to the games tab and the box that says "Sales & Specials", hit that then hit the box thats says get the free app now.

I just checked out the Gears chain reaction. My god, is that deal horrible.

First, you have to buy an avatar prop. Sure, it only costs a buck under this deal, but does anyone above the age of 12 actually buy that garbage? But for a dollar, it's probably the least retarded portion of the whole thing.

Then, you have to buy not one, but TWO DLC packs. Any gears fan who would be interested in any part of this deal at all already bought those DLCs a long time ago. So basically, the people most likely to even participate in this deal are the ones most likely alreadly locked out of it because they had the nerve to actually buy the DLC when it came out. gg, Microsoft......

And for the grand finale? 600 points off weapon skins. Even after the discount, you're still paying 3000 points -- just short of $40 for fucking weapon skins.

This "chain reaction" offer would only be a good idea if step 5 included anybody who actually completed steps 1-4 being herded up, sterilized, and locked in an institution for the dangerously stupid.

I have been doing the scratch and match twice a day( once from my account and once from my wife's account) since the first day of it's release and have not won anything on either account.

From what I read when I did a search on it, the rewards are avatar items and some arcade/dlc items but I never saw exactly which ones.

07-08-2012, 04:08 PM
I've been playing daily and haven't won jack. I hope the chain reactions stay crappy because I don't want to have to debate on buying something crappy to get a decent deal.

07-08-2012, 06:15 PM
Scratch and Match is just a sweepstakes really, everyone gets an entry and only a few win. I'd doubt I'd ever win it, at all, ever. It's probably just as luck based as 'At the Races' on Mario Party.

As of the chain reaction, it's ridiculous, it's a case of Microsoft saying, "Yeah you can have some discounts if you don't mind buying this content first." I kind of wanted the DLC packs for GOW3 but I don't want that prop. It's what puts me off more than anything.

I fear the mystery wheel. I fear that it's an unruly hell demon which asks you to pay some MSP and all hell breaks loose.

I like the interface for the DotW though, it's kinda cool, and that is a nice shade of blue.

I don't think they will charge msp because of various gambling laws so it would really surprise me if they charged.

I have not BUT I heard you can win a free arcade game, etc

sleepydumbdude
07-08-2012, 07:26 PM
That is what I heard also and it can be one that you all ready own. Its not a code either so it just downloads after you win. That would be my luck. I'll probably win Risk Factions or something. (which I have and is on sale constantly)

FFFreak1129
07-09-2012, 01:01 PM
I've played it almost every day since they came out with it but haven't won anything yet.

EliteShadowMan
07-09-2012, 02:56 PM
Nope. What pisses me off the most about it is the fact that you get 3-4 chances to win everytime, and it's always off by one tile.

Don't really understand how you win. Do all the tiles need to be the same or is it 3 in a line?

07-12-2012, 05:53 PM
I haven't, but I read in the terms & conditions that the chance of winning is approximately 1:1000. So, most of us probably will never win... :(

I read and it said the odds were 1:20. I don't understand where you got 1000 from.

So another 15 times and I should win on it, not very likely.

No it's definitely 1:1000.

I know, its silly. I won more with 2 gamestock cards from gamestop than I have through scratch and win over 7 tries.

The two aren't even comparable >_> You may as well say you got at least one of heads or tails on two coin flips but haven't rolled an 8 on your single die yet.

Ziltch, as always. Almost every ticket looks like this

(using smiley faces for examples)

:mad::mad::eek:
:eek::eek::mad:

Something along those lines, going up, down...sideways. Always, always never matching...I don't expect to win either but I might as well try since it takes like less than 10 seconds each day...

I got it straight from the terms & conditions that you need to agree to before you start your first Scratch & Match... Where'd you get your 1:20 from?

EDIT: Odd, it's 1:20 according to Xbox.com, but could've sworn it said 1:1000 in the app. I'll check again on my second account. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/sales-and-specials-app/rules

EDIT 2: Yeah, 1:1000 according to the app itself. I'm going to go with 1:1000, otherwise there should at least be one person who won in this thread..

I've yet to win anything on that thing yet. It's basically just like a lottery ticket: you might win something, but most of the time you lose.

And Chain Reaction? No thanks. You're better off waiting for those things to go on sale instead of being forced to buy one thing to save on another.

I seem to be lucky with sweepstakes.
Entered many in the past, even some that are not related to games.

Anyway, sorry for getting off topic. Can anyone post the link? :)

An Xbox... Xbox Live Gold... A Television... Internet...

Actually, you don't need Gold to do Scratch and Match. I have several silver accounts I try to win with as well (still unsuccessful). Two Golds, three silvers...just like a lottery doesn't seem to help my odds any.

Edit: I am also going to note that silver accounts are ALSO able to purchase the Scratch and Match offers. I just confirmed prices on the app and marketplace with one of my silver accounts...so it appears those offers ARE NOT Gold Exclusive.

TVthePunisher
08-21-2012, 05:51 PM
HAH! Wow...WOW. I actually friggin' won...and what do I get? A GAMERPIC PACK! OMG! ......wow. And it's not even with my main account, so I'm not sure if these will carry over to everyone else...

Whoever posted the picture earlier is accurate, when you win the three boxes that are in a row are goldoutlined and you get a nice bit "YOU WIN!"stamp with stars in the center. On the left it allows you to Facebook Share and on the right, continue to your prize.

This week's Scratch and Win prize is Bomberman Live Gamerpics Pack 03! Also whenever you hit continue, it brings you to the offer page with the other offers BUT adds your "Winning Offer" to the lineup as well.

Here's to hoping that the next time (if there's a next time) that I win...I'll receive an arcade game. Gamerpics are ok...as I'm displaying the Bomberman one now but...games are where it's at.

I personally never won, But my friend won and guess what his prize was?

He won a grill for his avatar, but he didn't actually win it. He won a discounted price for that item. He called MS and said I won this grill and its not free I still have to pay. MS actually told him that not every prize from the sale and specials app is free. So anyone who wins, dont expect any wow factor from it, Its the curiousity that pulls you in.

I got the mask for free when it was first uploaded, but congrats on the streak. Getting all those messages reminds me of the time I had a question featured on Sentuamessage, all week I had nothing but spam messages and voice messages and friend requests. It was awful.

I don't know if the dash still does it but the "featured user of the day" must really suck if you're trying to work on crap. Everyone on Xbox would see your tag and probably bombard you with messages X_X....though I'm not sure if this is still done. Think it was called Gamer Spotlight or something.

Never and I've played everyday. Of course I'm not surprised I've never won anything off deals, registrations or scratch n match and I've been live for almost 4 years. I've come very close on scratch n match many times thinking I'm gonna win to be thrown off. I think it's a complete joke really and judging by the other comments you don't always win those games that are deal of the week.

I bet someone at M$ is sitting there in a chair, eating chips and guzzling down a soda controlling with cards appear as we scratch while they laugh their ass off.

Congrats on winning Punisher! I've been loading up that app everyday since it's inception and I still havn't won! :confused: You'd think I'd be lucky being that my birthday is St. Patrick's Day and all but the Luck of the Irish isn't strong enough for scratch and match. I'll keep trying though. LOL
