If it was clearly stated before you submitted the card, it's not stupid.



No, it's still stupid. Perhaps not unfair, but still stupid.

In general, it's better to tell everyone "this is how you game the system" and let them do whatever they want, rather than make a bunch of rules, and it's easier to enforce too (because, how do you define "bent" for a business card? What if it's slightly curved? How curved can it be?)

They can have whatever rules they want for their drawing.



Yes, they can. Including stupid ones.

Quote:

Has anyone heard of a casino drawing making this rule? I have never entered one.



I haven't seen it, but I've only entered a few with drawing tickets. Most of the ones that I've done are electronic, where you touch a button at the kiosk to enter your "tickets" into the "drum".

Always fold the tickets . My best luck is curling the corners two up and two down to sesperate the ticket from other tickets.
I've won 3 in 24 drawings .
Average tickets in drawing 2000
Average numbers of winners drawn 16 a drawing .
I would like to think what I do works sometimes it can't be a fluke .
One time it won me $10,000 promo cash have a video on YouTube .

Bending tickets give bent tickets a bettet chance in of getting pulled. I would NEVER fold them. Casinos have avoided folded tickets to avoid AP' s winning.

Nowadays Some places actually say no bent, crimped or folded tickets.

I say slightly bend them just enough not to be totally flat.

I've had a bent one win and the announcer mumbled "this ones bent." Then announced "No bent tickets in the drum". He tossed it. Only a few hundred bucks but still stunk. It makes even more sense that it was mine because I flooded it bent ones and I was the only one unfamiliar with the rules of not bending. Live and learn I guess.
