Great googly moogly! The 300T celebration has come and gone, and with the drawing complete today we're already 20T on the way to the 350T party!

This celebration had a record huge amount of things given away - not only the Blast and Bonks, but Bonus and Promo Blinks going out to hundreds of players for billions upon billions of ISK!

In the minibonks, winning absolutely free:

Ice Rikers and Redamok Houssa won a Jump Freighter of their choice each
Featious and Hatycha Vor'hona won 4 Carrier BPOs of their choice each
Pacifica Casul and Roshcar won one of every subcap Pirate ship each
Toroup and Alice Oksaras won 5B Blink Credit each
Bacrai Trouble and Alexi Falstaff won 12 PLEX each
And Castiel's Fury and Kamikaze1 won one of every subcap Navy ship each!

In the Bonk, for 500k ISK per ticket:

ECHBlackthorn won a Titan BPO of his choice
Sarmy Silverwing won 100 PLEX
InconsiderateLizard won an Utu with CCP Explorer's corpse in the cargo
Pacifica Casul won a Kernite Mining Crystal II BPO
chrioo won a Jaspet Mining Crystal II BPO
Redamok Houssa won an Energized Explosive Membane II BPO
Wax Deteis won an Energized Kinetic Membrane II BPO
And tumbleweeds won a Heavy Beam Laser II BPO!

And in the main event, in the Blink Blast, with a free ticket for every Blink each person played (including Promo blinks!):

Featious won 250 Billion ISK sent straight to his wallet!

Huge congratulations to all of these winners, as well as everyone who won a Promo, a Bonus, a Gift, or just came out to party with us!

But don't run off yet - 350T is FLLLLYYYINNNNG up fast, and we've got even more madness in the works!

Funny the same people winning multiple prizes. Wonder if this has anything to do with those unexplained booleans
in the user files that were found?

Or maybe just really poor design.

Heya Rip :)

The Bonks and Blast were drawn using Chribba Dice. More just a case of "Who went realllllyyyy deep on these things" combined with an extremely long prize list :)

Some of those people win everything. And since they have so much cash/blink credit, they can spend huge amounts on bonkss, minibonks, gigablinks etc.

Thanks again and GL to everyone for 350T ... just around the corner!!

Editted in: Whoops, I forgot the most important part - Congratulations to all the winners and better luck next time to all those, like me, who were not favored this time by lady luck.

"Found" that's funny! Kind of sounds like Indiana Jones was in on it. Or how about this headline, "John Dillinger Finds Money in Bank"

This "supposed to exist" list was supposed to have been hacked, which is stealing.

But nobody has seen the list published - we just have rumors.

Again, again, and again - we just have rumors. Every Benchmark Celebration you guys roll out a new set of alts and a new set of rumors.

Hey Remember the guy you guys declared as Greatest Shill in Eve on that goofy blog atarted by the guy who tried to extort Blink out of 49 bil ? Did you know that he had over 10% of the bonks for the last mini-bonk? Easy to remember number 111,111 out of about 950k . And because it was the last mini-bonk of the week, his odds went way up beacuse all the tickets of all the previous mini-bonk winners already drawn in the first five mini-bonks were null and void by the time they got to drawing the last mini-bonk - AND, because they decided to have TWO winners for each mini-bonk, that meant the tickets from ten winners were all null and void, so his chances went really way up - pretty smart strategy. But his name was not drawn. Even some of YOUR shills were posting prognostications in the blink chat about how he was "destined to win" and "the rich get richer" and its "all rigged" and "easy to pick the winners in advance - look at how many bonks that guy has" - like it is cheating to use what you have in a casino to try to win bets.

Not hearing anything out of you guys about his loss. Or the loss he had earlier the same day when he bought 48 out of 64 giga tickets and lost. Now if he is a shill, Blink lost the chance to take in the isk from 48 tickets. Oh he is an "Exposed Shill" is what I guess you will say, so they made sure he did not win. But wait, he did win a couple of gigas earlier in the celebration and in the chat he told his friends not to congratulate him because he intentionally tried to "buy" the prize because he needed the isk.. So I guess you guys will say as an "exposed shill" (simply because someone hung that on him, not because of any proof - just more rumors) they let him win some and keep him from winning other times - That would make a lot sense, for them to keep denying themsleves from the isk that could be coming in from the tickets your guys say he is given. You can't have it both ways

How about this - it is random when he wins and when he loses, oh wait, that sounds a like a legit casion!!! Oh damn, Those Blink people are so smart to let their shills just take their chances and win some and lose some - then no one will notice they are shills because their experience is just like everyone else's!! Brilliant! Just like Edgar Allen Poe's "The Purloined Letter"!

I understand it is a pathological problem some people have who can find a conspiracy in everything and find codes that don't really exist in crossword puzzles, the arrangement of bricks in a sidewalk or say the photos of planes crashing into towers were photoshopped and the hundreds of thousands who witnessed it were mass hypnotized, But get help.

Read David Kahn's book, "The Codebreakers". You will find it interesting and probably will look at it as a biography and wonder if Kahn followed you around before wtiting it. And always remember the motto of the Tinfoil Hat "Believing is seeing"

Some people seem to believe that casinos are like welfare offices where everybody is entitled to get the same amount - the ones who say "the rich get ricker" seem to forget that the rich started this game with 5k in isk, a piece of trit and a crappy ship. Now they want to beat them up because they can buy more tickets.

I know you guys felt bad when the Y2K thing fell though and the world of computers and commuters kept on clicking without even noticing and you're all going to feel like hell when the Mayan calendar ends and there is no grand upheaval of the human race for you to celebrate, but press on - one day there will be alien beings who visit this backward little planet and leave after have done more than sharing the knowledge of how to pile rocks in line with the sunset at summer solstice and taught humans to stack rocks at right angles - they might even leave behind their equivalent of a cell phone or laptop - this time.

It is nice that you guys want to save all the people who are willingly playing games in Blinks casino and having fun doing it, but other than the pathological drive to reveal what probably does not exist, do you have any reason to continue? O, well... It just may they are kicking your casino's @$$.

Eh...they're here already - observing...judging...and, lucky for us, protecting us from the douche-bag aliens who USED to visit and make everyone pray to them...and so forth... So...until tougher aliens show up, or they...deem us not worth the effort...time to make some f'n isk to lose at the next celebration.

My odds were 1:8 (i bought 1 on the 8s and 2 on the 16s) and my win ratio was 12.85% just slightly above the expected win ratio, this volume was taken from about 25000 blinks, at one time i was 3rd on the all time played list. so this average win ratio is a VERY good speciman.


I play 2 on the 8s, 99% of the time - and am at just under 25% win ratio, for 3500ish blinks. Not as good a sample, but still, damn near right on the nuts.

Ya know...I'll bet...if I bought all the tickets, my win ratio would be 100%.

Wow - Love that name - I'm not into golden showers or anything like that, but I'm old and grew up in the country where we had two holers outback with a Sears catalog for that "finishing touch". Your name brought back some memories of some young ladies who might have gone by that name on some nights. But a gentleman never pisses and tells....

Sweet if you're one of the 4-5 pilots that has a perpetual amount of ISK to keep dropping into it...then win, cash in, have more ISK, rinse and repeat...meanwhile the rest of the playerbase just seem to be throwing away their hard earned (ie not their "Blink is my main source of income" ISK)

That's just my observation.

Okay, I've just (5 minutes ago) started playing this, and I can already see it's gonna be horribly addictive.. I've already won a PLEX on my third Blink! \o/

I would recommend this game for sure!

They use Dice to draw the bonks. Or does your tinfoil have room for Chribba under it, too?
