I got the following error message when I typed my SPG number. I don't understand why residents from Hong Kong are excluded from this game! Sounds something weird to me....

Hi cy1978hk,

Unfortunately the rules governing games/contests in certain countries and provinces prohibit us from allowing members in those areas to participate.

Best regards,

Zippo for me on my first try at it today. I wish I knew about this contest sooner! This will be an enjoyable small distraction for me for the next thirteen days.

Daily participation since the beginning, haven't won anything yet but given it takes less than a minute to play worth the shot every day. Hopefully, I'll get lucky once before the 11th!

Also, crossing my fingers that the hotels I'm staying at are participating! Have a number of multi-day stays that include a Friday or Saturday night during the promo period.

The people that have won something.. What card did you pick? I wonder if some cards have better chances than others.

First world question: Has anyone won twice? Are you even eligible to do so?

Greedy!

I've not won anything. My ambassador didn't even inform me of the promotion. So I missed the first couple of days (as I don't check FT every day).

Thankfully the lurkers here are more helpful...
