    Entered>Win Ratios 18th Oct 16 at 2:14 PM
    Hey all

    I'm just curious of how many people keep track of the number of comps they enter and if they know of their entered > win ratios?

    Since May 2016 I have entered 1755 competitions without a win yet. Before that it was 3458 before a win (but I did win quite a big prize so was happy with that )

    I started comping in 2007 and I used to enter the same amount of comps (100 or so per week) and win every 8-10 weeks. So roughly the ratio of my wins was 1000/1.

    Would be interested to see what other compers ratios are and how many comps they enter per week.

    Good luck everyone

    Some of the previous threads (given the number of variables and the small sample size none provide statistically useful information)

    I don't bother counting how many comps I enter, but I do know with Dailies, Mags Dailies, postals and new comps on the main board I enter more than 100 every day (often a lot more).

    As others have said it's best to enter and forget. Good luck!
    Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.

    I very roughly estimate i win 1 in 1000. I do about 500-1000 a week and get a win about once a week.
    Wins in 2016 Film screening and afternoon tea, champagne, meals at four restaurants, £100 Amazon voucher, £200 voucher, £1000 DFS voucher, leather wallet, trip to Eurodisney in Paris, trip to Savannah, USA and a trip to Hong Kong with £1000 spending money!
