There is no option for I have all the prizes and Ill never spin the wheel again

    This is primarily for people who have 80K+ gift cards (or have spent donuts to have gotten the equivalent number of tokens), for the best data.

    I've seen in some threads theories on the wheel spinning involving positioning, that it resets each time you leave it, so if you often wind up on the same spaces, you're better off spinning multiple times in a row to get the items. That certainly worked for me, as I did get a lot of the same spaces when I had 5 things left on the wheel...then I saved up 9 tokens, and in 6 spins I got 4 of the remaining things. I did a few single token spins to get the last item and wound up in the same spot right next to it, then saved up 10 tokens and got it on my 3rd spin.

    I'm curious if there's any trend on this.

    I used 96k gift cards and found it to be totally random, only got the last 2 items 3 days ago, got the last 2 items in 2 spins even tho for a week before that was nothing but cash and cards.

    I think for most people, when they have got all of the prizes, they've just stopped spinning.

    There needs to be an option: "I have all the items Except the Yeti and I spin as soon as i get a Token, why save them?!? Darn yeti!! GIVE ME THE YETI!"

    I am presuming that people have stopped spinning the wheel once they get their prizes, as I have. I suppose I could have edited it to make it clear that I meant WHEN YOU WERE SPINNING, but I figured that implication would be obvious.

    Perhaps I assumed too much of people.

    This right here. Blasted wheel and clown who's controlling the darn thing.

    Well, certainly not a large enough dataset to draw serious conclusions, but I feel like this does lend some credence to the theory that multiple-spins are more likely to get you the items. A similar number of people between the two methods have all the items, yes, but among people who spin 5+ times at once, a *much* larger percentage have all the items.

    Certainly not proof...but makes it worth a try for those who are still having trouble.

    I have 50k+ gift cards, only santas little helper snowman to collect, never spend any real money on the game :)
    I had an advantage as I already had the lights from last year, although that didn't seem to give me a great head start seeing as I still haven't collected quite everything.

    The implication was obvious, and you definitely assumed too much of people. :roll: The way it was worded made perfect sense.

    17 spins in a row last night, on the back of about 30 or so since I got my penultimate prize, but no matter what I do, Claus co still evades me...

    I just got my last prize, SLH. I've got 57,000 gc.
    I spent a few donuts to speed up the Egg Nog bar a couple times, but never bought any tokens.
    I would spend whenever I got a token. If I knew I was close to getting tokens after 30,000 and my ENB token was ready, I'd wait until I got tokens from collecting gcs but I'd still spend ASAP. I don't know how much the positioning has to do with it but I started slowly moving the wheel to a random spot and then flicking to spin as fast as possible.

    After spAnser unstuck my spin tokens, I received 71 tokens. Add one from the Egg Nog Bar and two whilst spinning (cards from the wheel) for a total of 74 spins at one time. The result: got the Clause Co. building on spin number 73. True story.

    Have yet to clear the wheel, however, as Plow King still eludes me; but once I get that, I will never touch that wheel again. Ever.

    Got the last item - ice god - at 85k. Span ever so slowly counter-clockwise and after a few near misses this worked. Same for Clausco which was the last but one item I got. Of course, this tactic was/is probably rubbish and makes no difference but it was suggested by another forumer so it made me feel I was trying something to get the last two items.

    It seemed like whenever I spun multiple times at once, it would land on cash four times in a row, and then give me something else, whether it be GC's or an actual prize. But then, it did the same thing when I started spinning one token at a time. I swear, though, throughout the event, I never got cash more than four times in a row. Cash, cash, cash, cash, 50 GC's, cash, cash, cash, cash, yes, but these people who are posting that they got cash 20 spins straight are boggling my mind.

    Been pretty lucky tbh, wasn't here last xmas so had a boatload of prizes to get.

    Got my last prize (snowball 2) at around 62k or so. Now sitting on 30 coins (wish I could gift those away).

    Never spent on extra spins but would always spin the coins I gained in a session, wether it be 1 or 4, never hoarded them.

    All this tells ya is that it is random, guess this might even out my mystery box luck. Last 4 boxes, $250 each, am hoping for a parking lot to break the monotony next time :wink:
