    Number of entries into competitions

    Number of entries into competitions 1st Mar 13 at 8:39 AM
    I have read a couple of threads today about the number of entries into competitions.

    One was for the huge number of entries into the ITV competitions. Another mentioned the daily competition to win a pack of batteries. I thought it might be interesting to have a thread dedicated to listing the number of entries that a particular competition had. So if for example you have had a WEM that states that you have been selected out of 3957 entries to win a pushchair for example, would you mind listing the brief details here, so that we can all see.

    The long running daily from Jennings Brewery now coming to an end says

    Since the Explore Galore promotion started in 2013, there have been over 12 million entries (pints pulled)
    Assuming a Jan 2013 start that would break down to around 2,700 people having 3 goes a day (about 56,700 entries per weekly competition) for 4.25 years

    AO TW comp to win a "Hoover Wi-Fi Fridge Freezer" just required a retweet

    3,118 entries (6% of their followers)

    AO FB comp to win a "Samsung Fridge freezer" required a screen shot of their video at the correct moment

    4,613 entries (0.26% of their followers)


    (Although twitter entry route was quick and easy like many they have more FB followers than Twitter ones - 1,805,938 to 51,750)

    I'd love to know how many on average the monthly kipling comp gets when you have to guess how many have entered it this month - nigh impossible for me as I am never close on these type of comps!
