    I don't understand how this works…. Is it a random win? Or do you have to match something they have in mind?

    So this has been running for 10 hours so far…I notice every time I make a burger (or edit it) the number in the URL goes up like a counter. It's around 911,000 right now.
    So let's say approx 2 million entries/day, and a cap of 3,000 prizes/day (100,000/35)
    That's a 1 in 666 chance of a prize.
    If it takes you 15 seconds to make an entry, that's nearly 3 hours of trying to get a prize.

    Of course, this could all be wrong…

    Won free fries and coke for my lettuce burger. :]

    Lettuce wrap
    Big Mac® Special Sauce

      Any email received on your end?

      I tried repeating your combination but no luck. It doesn't seem like the combinations matter, just a random win.

      •  

        Do you think, or are certain prizes allocated to make ups?There's a of of possible combinations.

        •  

          I did consider that. I think the possible combinations are 3x5x8x7x8= 6720. Doesn't seem to match the amount of prizes though and I would have expected some mention in the fine print if that was the case.

        • +3 votes

          @djmatt24:

          Can multiply every ingredient 3 times, besides the buns. So its actually 3x15x24x21x24 = 544,320 combinations :)

        •  

          @djmatt24: I'm not very good at maths so correct me if I'm wrong.

          There's 3 buns, then max 3 cheeses of a total of 6 cheeses (so 18 combinations), then 9 meats (but up to 10 max on burger). Meats are able to be added 0,1,2 times.

          For salads there is 8 ingredients but up to 10 max on burger. Salads are able to be added 0,1,2,3 times.

          Sauces are 3 max from 9 options. Can add 1 sauce up to 3 times.

          Don't really how to calculate that though.

        •  

          @verapa: The more I think about it the harder it seems to calculate the number… You can have three cheeses, but it can be the same times three or three different so that number goes up a lot… Same with everything else except the buns… I'm sure the number of variants is huge.

    It's like taking pictures of coloured cans again. Almost.

  • +2 votes

    Ok so there are 3 breads so 3X

    5 cheese up to 3 choices so thats, you can pick 3 cheese, 2 cheese, 1 cheese or no cheese. Picking all 3 cheese would give 5 to power of 3 choices 125 combinations, picking 2 would be 25 combinations, picking 1 is 5 combinations, and 1 combination for no cheese.

    5^3 + 5^2 + 5^1 + 5^ 0 X

    Mains (10 mains, 9 mains…. 0 mains)
    8^10+8^9+8^8+8^7+8^6+8^5+8^4+8^3+8^2+8^1+8^0X

    Salads (10 to 0 up to 3 salads of a same type.)
    (7^10+7^9+7^8+7^7+7^6+7^5+7^4+7^3+7^2+7^1+7^0) - (7^7 + 7^6 + 7^5 + 7^4 + 7^3 + 7^2 + 7^1) X

    Sauce (3 to 0)

    8^3+8^2+8^1 X

    I can tell you its a huge number. Picking 10 different mains such as angus paddy and 9 other items already gives you
    1,073,741,824X combinations.

    Once you multiple them you get a huge number.

    • +2 votes

      So that would be why none of my combos are working then ;) This is the dam coke comp all over again.

      •  

        I failed every time as well but I think no winning combination is likely to have 10 mains or 10 salads. A max of 2 each i would imagine.

    • +1 vote

      I chucked that into wolfram and got 110,718,635,670,762,070,996,980 (regular calculator wouldn't cut it). That's 110 sextillion or 110 thousand billion billion possible combinations.

      •  

        well my maths was wrong

        because if i pick bacon + angus it would be the same as picking angus + bacon. Technically its the same burger but the ingredients are layered differently

        and i forgot to add 1 for the sauce.

        •  

          The ingredients are always positioned the same regardless of the order you pick them

        •  

          I think you were mostly right. However, your calculation doesn't adjust for the fact that you can choose the same ingredient multiple times. e.g. max of 2 angus, or max of 3 bacon. In your calculation you assumed that once you choose one ingredient, you cannot choose it again. Which just makes this even more complicated. Regardless, it's a massive number (even bigger than 110 sextillion)

    After 20 entries I won a free fries and coke!

    At the rate they are handing out prize it will take them 6 years to award out all the prizes.

    5 days in, 14% through the comp, and they've given away about 150 prizes, or ~0.15%.

    Ahhh….Wat?

    On my second try i won free cokes and fries. Looks like simple burgers are winning, so i chose

    Baker's bun
    Long Sliced Pickle
    Whole Leaf Lettuce
    McDonald's Classic Cheese
    113g Angus Patty

    which was my winning entry

    EDIT: Looks like you have to purchase the burger to be able to claim the free coke and fries voucher

    I'm pretty sure it's not based on the ingredients. It's got to be either random or time-based.

    Just a bit of info for everyone who has won a prize but have not received their email… I called Mcdonalds customer support and the lady told me that they have a technical glitch which means that some people are not receiving their emails but this should be sorted in a few days and they will be sending the email then. So hopefully I receive my prize soon

  •  

    Well I got good news

    2nd chance draw to be held at 2pm (AEST) 21/9/15 at 6/3 Central Ave, Thornleigh NSW 2120.

    So pretty much most prizes will be won via draw, and I'm up to 50 entries now of the total 91372 entries (1001372 - 910000)

      Its going to have to start spewing out prizes soon, for a 36 day comp there's next to nothing gone!

      Only prizes valued over $50 will go to second chance, which is hardly any and I think pretty poor.

    I won a second time.. this time I tried about 50 more.. they've updated the system so you dont have to re-enter your details

    Baker's bun
    Whole Leaf Lettuce
    113g Angus Patty ×2
    

    and a third time, lol (after 2 tries)

    Ingredients

    Baker's bun
    Whole Leaf Lettuce
    Grilled Pineapple ×2
    

    now a fourth time. (after 15 tries)

    Ingredients

    Brioche-style
    Sliced Beetroot
    113g Angus Patty
    Grilled Mushrooms ×2
    

    Takes me about 5 seconds to edit a burger and submit it. Usually I try the 3 types of wrapping, the 2 buns and the lettuce for each combination.

    Right now I am going for no cheese, and no sauce combinations. I think after 100K tries by various people these are probably the simple combinations that are yet to be done.

    •  

      How can you finish all the fries and cokes you've won?!

      • +2 votes

        you have 48h to claim it and then you have till August to use the voucher.

        The funny thing over the last 15 years I eaten macdonalds about 5 times so I say pretty hard LOL ^^

        And i only ate it as it was a freebie from a friends monopoly food prize.

    •  

      I just tried your method of building simple burgers with no cheese and sauce, won 2x free fries and coke vouchers in less than a minute. =]

  •  

    i just won free fries and coke after numerous attempts, do you guys know if the burger we order to get the free drink and fries needs to be the burger we created or can we make another one up? because the one i need doesn't look or sound very appealing!

  •  

    winner fries and coke

  •  

    Yum, I just ate mine. The Angus burger was lovely, much different to the normal burger I get (Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, etc) and I had Parmesan cheese on mine which made it taste awesome. I'll definitely give this another go. Oh, and the coke and fries were large size.

    Looks like its no longer about getting the right burger but about random luck. You can keep submitting the same burger till you win. (1 in 3 wins.)

    I'm up to 15 fries wins.

    Nearly up to 40 fries and drink wins now. I have a few tries once every 30 minutes but keep getting the same prize.

    They are releasing all the prizes now, I think they were waiting for more people to enter before they start releasing all the prizes! I just won fried and drink 3 times in a row!
    I want something else rather than the chips and drink.

  •  

    Its spitting them out easy enough

    Main thing is, if you're not going to use the free chips and drinks, don't claim them! Let them go back in the pool :)

    Entered 15 times in a row and i won 13 times with the same combo…

    I think i might take a break for now… now way im going to be able to use these vouchers all at once.
