    I have won a few of the random prizes so I don't believe in the conspiracy theory that many of you seem to subscribe to.  While it does seem strange that a few of the players who won were people who don't play very often, it can happen.

    To be honest here.....

    I remember an instance last year where I read an american have won the lottery jackpot twice.

    Many people buy a UK national lottery ticket for the 1st time and win £5 million+

    There's millions of people who have bought tickets every week for the past 10 years and never won anything at all.

    Difference with the UK Lottery though is that the numbers are drawn live on TV for the country to see.

    Transparency is the key to this issue.

    I'm far from advising WGT how to run their successful business and to be honest Chad looks like he has an honest face plus TarHeelsRule has stated he's won a few randoms and he seems a genuine guy.

    Not sure what WGT could do to make things more transparent. Maybe do a live web cam session with Icon dressed in a TuTu pressing the trigger then out pops a random winner.

    Edge has raised a valid topic IMHO......because these random sweeps prizes can have a value of $5K +

    you've won a few of the random prizes??? dam how many you win :)

    if you saw when wgt were showing how their new stroke disconnect works (in news section) and the players they used, which icon explained are tester accounts that they have in the game. what is to stop them doing this on the random prizes? how do we know they are not wgt test accounts? i don't believe they are, but i think they should make this 'random drawing' a lot more transparent

    It is here too Davey. just so many of them, they only show them locally.

    I don't think the random drawings are fixed people. I too was lucky enough to win the Celtic Manor challenge

    Anything is possible!

    Went in June, had a great time..Thank you WGT! :)
