tweeted tweeted to win
2,098 views It has been awhile since there was a giveaway. I think it is time for another. Read on for the particulars.
What Are You Giving Away?
Since Aprone has recently given everyone who ever created a gamer account a free month of play time. I figure it is a perfect time to piggy back off that and give away an additional years worth of free playtime to one lucky winner. I’m making the giveaway as easy as possible so let’s get into the details.
The short version of how it will work.
@bsg_blog on twitter will be sending out a couple tweets with the hashtag “#SwampAudioGameGiveaway. If you RT one of these tweets you will be entered into the drawing. You can RT each tweet to get entered in multiple times, once for each original tweet you RT. A random winner will be drawn and given 12 months worth of a gamer account.
Swamp Giveaway Details
- The Giveaway is open to anyone. Current and new Swamp players.
- There will be one winner drawn using random.org or some other automatic twitter drawing program.
- The winner will receive 12 months worth of a swamp gamer account worth $24.00.
- To win you will have to be following @BSG_blog on twitter and retweet one of the original giveaway tweets sent out by @bsg_blog with the hashtag “#SwampAudioGameGiveaway”.
- An Example of what a tweet will look like: “RT this tweet to win a free year of Swamp! “#SwampAudioGameGiveaway Details at blog.blackscreengaming.com/post-title”. Each original tweet will be different, but they will all be along the same lines.
- There will be multiple tweets and you can retweet each one for a chance to be entered into the drawing. Either retweeting or quoting it will count as an entry.
- Only original “#SwampAudioGameGiveaway tweets from @bsg_blog will be counted towards the drawing. If you RT a quoted tweet it will not count as an entry.
- The Giveaway will open on Wednesday May 23rd, 2018 at 6:30 PM Eastern Time and will close on Thursday May 31st, 2018 at 11:59 PM Eastern time.
- Any retweets you send out in the above time range will count as 1 entry into the drawing.
- You can only retweet each tweet once, attempting to do it more than one time will not give you additional entries into the drawing.
- The winner will be drawn and notified by Twitter Direct Message on Friday June 1st, 2018.
- The winner will have 48 hours to reply via Twitter Direct Message and give the required information about their account so a new account can be purchased, or so Aprone can manually add 12 months to their existing account.
- If the winner doesn’t reply within 48 hours then a new winner will be drawn. I’ll attempt to draw a new winner twice. If the second redraw doesn’t reply then There will be no prize given out.
- If the person drawn as a winner decides they would like to pass on the 12 months they can do so and a new winner will be drawn.
- If someone only wishes to retweet a original “#SwampAudioGameGiveaway tweet to share it but not be in the drawing they can let me know through a Twitter Direct Message sent to @bsg_blog and I won’t count them in the drawing.
Good luck. I’m keeping this as short and simple as possible, just keep an eye out for the tweets and make sure you RT each one for one entry each. If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I’ll answer them.
Updates and winner
- I put everyone’s tweets into a spreadsheet.
- I then randomized the order of the tweets in open office using =RAND()
- After this I went to Random.org and used the integer generator to pick a random number.
- The random number generated was “70” which was @DiannaMuircast. Sadly they were not following the blog so I had to draw a new number.
- The new random number was “30” which was @EStaehnke. They were sent a DM notifying them that they won at 12:13 AM on June 1st.
- It took about a day for them to reply but they did within the 48 hour window.
- The gamer account was purchased, but the conformation link was not working.
- after a couple more days this was fixed and the account was activated and transferred to @EStaehnke.
