    1. Its obviously rigged and the chance of winning the mug is 0.01% (don't know the exact win rate)
    2. No play to win so you can't get zsilvers.
    3. you can't win anything besides discount codes
    Don't waste your zilvers on this, the chances of you getting anything is low and you might as well buy the mug from ebay and without play to win you can't buy anymore spins and not only that it drains your zsilvers. Razer if you want give back to the fans release the mug for a few days with limited quantity or bring back play to win or anyway that people have a better chance of getting it.

    1. Of course it's "rigged", it's all chance. Nothing wrong with that, and it's not a scam at all. People know the risk and need to use self control.
    2. There are still ways to get zSilver still and lots of people still have a lot built up.
    3. That is just wrong

    You're definitely right that it's a low change though:smile_: I do wish the odds of getting a prize were listed but it's understandable that it depends on the entries received like all contests and raffles.
    The mug was an exclusive and if they make a bunch more then it's not exclusive anymore so not sure if they'll do it.

    What I meant was is that you mostly get discount codes, I don't see why a mug with a stand with chroma is so "exclusive" and for zsilver its still very hard to get

    I knew when I bought two spins that the chances of me winning anything was 0.01% but I took the risk anyways. At the rate I'm earning zSilver these days, I might as well use what I have before my points expire.

    Yup. I don't have too much zsliver. So I just spin one time only for the mug. Actually, I can spin few more time, but I won't do it.
    Even I got a lot of zsliver I won't spend all of it for the spin too. Just because I have a feeling that the percentage of winning the mug is very very low.:sob:

    Agree. I understand why razer make it so hard to win the mug. But I think it shouldn't be that hard...

    RNG is RNG. If it was "rigged" I would have won that mug! That thing is actually super exclusive and hard to find and only a select few in the office have it. There was a limited run, so it's not that we're trying to make it exclusive, it really is.

    I got a couple spins and I won a discount code and game pack that I doubt I'll ever use, but it would be nice for a version of it to come out that is a bit better (Only Razer Products on it, maybe ZGold, ZSilver and extra spin things on it etc.).

    I wish they had some kind of other way to get ZSilver right now but we are stuck with what we have, I'm gonna stop entering those things just because I want to save up a bit. If nothing new comes out before my remaining ZSilver starts to expire in December I might either buy something or just use it on spins or raffle tickets if there is anything out by that time.

    I think its fine as it is as it is supposed to be exclusive but personally the price is a bit steep now that cortex is gone

    Because it's RGB, and I don't know if you know this but uhh...




    RGB IS THE SUPREME RULER OF THE WORLD.

    doubt its RNG, also the mug isn't that limited theres 4011 mugs in the world judging if you guys are still going by 1337 quantity.

    Wait, there's 4011 mugs? How'd you get that number? :eek: I'm pretty sure Razer said there was 1337 as the amount. Correct me if I'm wrong!

    If you do all the times they gave it away im guessing they gave away 1337 so I did 1337 x 3

    Little known fact, I was owner for the development of the Chroma Mug and I never got one. All I ever got was pre-production engineering prototypes which were swiftly taken away from me once the job was done. :slightly_sad:

    So yes, fair to say it's exclusive AF.

    That sounds really unfair if you made it

    I hate it when you youngsters go and use acronyms that I then have to go look up, just to decipher what you're saying.

    All I know is that I got a THS Fidget Spinner out of it, so I don't mind either way.

    Nah, it's quite alright, all units were allocated to individuals or giveaways (such as this one). I could raise hell until I get one of my own, but that's one less for you guys then. ;)

    I spent 125k zsilver in this and not even think to complain even though I knew the chance is slim.... I might want to start giveaway my discount code since I'm not using it....

    It's just for fun and it's another idea to spend zsilver, if this is a scam then what you call jackpot slot then??? it's gambling man, the chances to win mug holder is the same as you win jackpot at the actual slot....
