Fido flip games results

Hi there,

I want to know if I mail envelope now. Would you respond with the list of winners. And I really want to ask you that it's 2018 and you can't just populate winners on your website??

Sending envelope is sounds like 90's.

 

Thanks

Chintan

Re: Fido flip games results

I believe the fido flip game was not real cause it did not run like a normal contest. Cant get winners list, dont hear or see anyone talking about winning, i played everyday from day 1 to last day and won nothing.

But that's how fido run's/works. Fido makes something sound great untill u get first bill, then the truth comes out and all the hiddin stuff like fees and how it really works.

 Ex; i was offered a tablet for $10 month for 2 years + $15 month for the data service. So that sounds really good at extra $25 month for tablet and service. until my first bill came in at $99.78, thats like 3 times higher then what i was told. Then 2nd bill at $97.56 so in first 2 months almost paid $200 for tablet to buy new is $240 and still had 22 more payments to go.

On 3rd month i talked to someone on how to pay off faster and for whatever resson they restarted the tablet agreement and had 24 payments to go again. No customer service rep would help me or fix thier mistake. So finnally i just paid what was owed and dropped that line.

Reps are to make things sound great with telling as little as they can so when u get 1st bill in and see the truth, u r already past the return date and r stuck with it

How many people has this happened to?

Hey @Hust71

 

The contest was very much real Smiley The official contest rules stated how the list of winners could be requested, for this contest we did not post a list of the winners as with most of our contests.

 

In terms of your tablet plan, that doesn't sound right. If you ever have issues with your invoice or the service you've received please bring it to our attention so we can look into it further, we definitely don't want you to be disappointed with your services.

 

Don't hesitate if you have any other questions.

Re: Fido flip games results

The aspects of this contest mechanics makes it extremely shady. Fido is using an in-house algorithm to generate random chance (which we have no way of inspecting since its not open source) fyi, its literally impossible for a computer to generate a random number. Whos to say the seed to generate pseudo random numbers for this game havn't been specially made in favour of staff member or who ever designed the flip game? How was "chance" generated if computers cannot make random decisions on their own? Wheres the source code for the RNG? The fact that no contest winners were announced publicly makes this even more shady. We can't know for sure if they rigged this contest in favour of Fido Staff (which is most likely the case) to avoid tax on their bonuses? In either case, I have filed a report to business bureau Canada and Canada Revenue Agency just incase. Nice try Fido

Re: Fido flip games results

Hey @glennlopez!

 

The Flip Game was sponsored by Fido but hosted by Launchfire. If you check out the rules here, employees were not eligible to participate in the contest.

 

The rules have been posted since the contest began. All winners are contacted by e-mail, and if a player wanted a list of the winners the instructions on how to do that were also posted.

 

I assure you we're 100% transparent, and we've had the official rules up for quite some time. If you have further questions, you can reach out to Launcfire directly, however the period to request a list of the winners has elapsed.
