Is that the savvy version of cheating? Not going for 100 6-card items but grabbing a (couple) less conspicuous item(s)? Saw one guy today w 3 diff 5-card scratcher items and no indication of volumes of gold having been spent on scratchers. I spent a couple hundo on them when they first came out and in around 200 attempts i got ONE 4-card item and that was it, period!
I just feel like i see soooo many of those damn yellow cars, mocking me for never getting a 5x prize/item myself...any thoughts??

If we knew how many people played daily and added a factor for purchases we could estimate the number of match-5's out. Assuming a Gaussian distribution we could estimate how many people could reasonably be expected to have them.

Also, the odds of 3 match 5's is stupidly low. Though, not impossible by any means.

I have one 5card scratcher five 4 cards (2 cash) never missing a day. I wouldn't call 3 crazy and I doubt a cheater could stop at 3.

I see the odd Power Racer, some are even Power Racer Plus, but what I see even more often is the Mechanized Guard.

Maybe "lucky" rivals are put on your list more often to subtly suggest buying gold and/or scratchers. I wonder how many people get frustrated with seeing so many lucky rivals that they go buy a hundred scratchers to see if they can get one of the über-rare 5x or 6x items, or even a rare 4x item.

I got mine totally by luck... Usually I get the match 2 prize, so the car was a sweet change.
Never spent gold on scratchers, never will. Never matched all 6 either, probably never will.

Same here but it makes the game more strategic for me

I always get shafted but my last 3 scratchers have been a fluid transfer and tiger blades and valor but it's all luck

I don't have a power racer. I'm sure it's because GREE hates us. Just us. I'm sure of it. True story.

On my 3 accounts none has any of 5x prizes.
Just got hit by the guy who got hit by scratcher lightning. 430k attack / 590k defense.
Almost thought he is the new CC powerhouse :) Reported. Lvl 200

I have the yellow car, only 5x ever received and maybe only missed 2 or 3 scratchers since they came out. Never bought any extra. Just dumb luck - most of mine are 2x....

It's OK, not only I don't have any 4x prize, I have gotten so many $1,000 & $10,000 that I am happy if I get a Viking Blade or Getaway Runner....:D

You beter , if cheaters accuse other "cheaters" of cheating beter ;) you know what envious world we live in .
so always make sure you have proof with your name on it ;) ...

Or else it turns ugly ;)
