CO Cigar Lottery 10 Update 2

Cigar Obsession Lottery #10, Update 1!

SmokeInn has very generously decided to be the sponsor for at least this 10th CO Cigar Lottery! In addition to the 150 cigars the winner this month shall receive this beauty, a 100+ count unit from SmokeInn – help me support them, they support you!

This is the second update for lottery #10! The lottery is rolling at a 150 cigar stop, so whenever the stash hits 150 I will draw a winner and the next round starts! As always I’ll have regular updates as things come in so you can drool over the growing prize pool :)

If you are new, watch the video to see what you could win, and keep reading to see the rules and tips!

HOW TO ENTER

This is going to be completely user driven kind of like the Lotto. However it doesn’t involve money or purchasing tickets with money, instead you are donating to the collective prize pool to enter!

Each time I will accept incoming packages with your cigars to add to the pool, and will update you with videos as entries come in. To add your entry you need to send in a minimum of 2 cigars, and can enter a maximum of 4 cigars, for a total of two entries per person/mailing address. Yes you can put all 4 cigars in one package. Damaged sticks will not be entered.

SHIPPING TIPS

When shipping cigars, it’s ok to use baggies as long as they are packed tight enough so they don’t roll around enough to be damaged. If however you have had any stored too dry, do not include any humification, just ship them as-is. Use a small box. If you already have a box you can ship them 1st class for under $3 just about anywhere. I also like the flat rate priority mail boxes, they are about $5 good to go. Stuff the box enough so nothing moves around and has some cushion if need be. Protect the cigars from moving around in short. Use delivery confirmation, I am not responsible for lost shipments, do not ask me about them. All entries will be shown in update videos.

RULES

NO CUBANS! I’m semi-ok with reviewing them on rare occasion but I will not be involved in any way distributing them.
All participants must be 18+ years of age and reside in the US.
At the end of each lottery I will produce a video showing the random winner being drawn using random.org and the winner will receive the whole prize shipment from me!
Full-sized Cigars, ONLY, no cigarillos.
Name brand, banded cigars only – no no-name, off-brand store bundle-only or house blends.
No intentional crap cigars like Ron Mexico or other similar ultra cheap POS smokes. Use common sense, if it’s not a major brand, don’t send it.

Include the following information in your package:

Name
email!!
Cigars you are entering
Full return address for prize delivery

Send entries and info here:
Bryan Glynn
5318 Bob White Dr.
Holiday, FL 34690

Good luck and SPREAD THE WORD! The more people are in it the bigger the prize!! Click the buttons below here and tell everyone, get them to enter! The bigger the pool the cooler extra stuff I can get you like the free humidors as well!

    Hey Bryan, when I was watching you draw the winner for the last lottery I had a thought:

    Instead of writing a 1 or 2 on each piece of paper for the number of entries, perhaps you should write the numbers corresponding to their place in line. For example, the 1st person sends you 2 entries, so they get #’s 1 & 2. The 2nd person gives you 1 entry, so they get # 3. The third person has 2 entries, so #’s 4 & 5.

    I think this would make it a lot easier on you when random.org spits out a number. Instead of counting through the stack, you can go straight to the winning number.

      Then I get people bitching about odds of a certain place, not sending in at the start or finish, etc. It works fine as-is, it’s no bother to count for 30 seconds.

  • gumby_130

    Just sent my entrie today.hope I make it in this one.

  • david121

    The nerve of some people.. lol it’s a shame there are people who will send in 2 dollar sticks while other people are sending in great brands. Thats really cheap

    • neocigaro

      Haha they want see if they can make it through with the cheapest ones they can find haha, But ya some people are sending some real good ones

      • SsgtJerikUSMC

        You know the funny thing is that you can get great smokes for good deals these days and it won’t break your bank. I’ve seen some 5 stick packs on Cigar Monster for like $18, and they were good Cigars! I mean seriously it’s not that hard. If people spent more time and effort in actually participating the right way and making it fun rather than wasting Bryan’s time they might find the whole experience more enjoyable and save themselves some time trying to cheat the system.

  • OBdrum81

    awesome box love the raffle I just entered for the first time this round!

  • Sinsandman

    Can’t wait to enter. I am currently in Afghanistan so I will need to get my wife to send the sticks, but I would love to get in on this.

    • Texvet

      Thank you for your service.

    • MaxDuo

      I agree with Texvet. Thank you for your service to your country :)

  • Craig

    It just kills me what some people will try to get away with! Do anyone remember a few months ago when someone sent in a Brick House (cut way down) and called it a Brick House Nub? HA HA HA…….. come on guys!

    • Jared

      That’s wild. If it came to cutting up a Brickhouse, I’d say screw it and just smoke the thing. What a waste of a good stick.

  • Sinsandman

    Ok, Got a Rocky and 3 Cammy Nubs being packaged and sent :) Excited at the opportunity. To Texvet and MaxDuo. Ain’t nothing but a thang lol. I am actually charged with increasing and maintaining soldier moral…I have decided to do so through a weekly smoke social. Just trying to find sponsors. Most the companies I approached with the request have put me on some long list. But still I try….also trying to figure out this gravatar thing…I made one but can’t figure out how to get it to this page.

    I was given a Mark Twain by a co-worker….it’s still in my humi and I really have no idea if/when I will ever smoke it, I really can’t even give it away to anyone lol. Maybe if I get a wild hair up my ass I will pretend to be from the Crap Network and smoke it, but I will have to be really drunk maybe.

    Other than the last 3 it’s a good looking lottery, keep it up Bryan.

    • JJO

      How about doing a guest review on it, man? lol Crap Obsession!

      • http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100000529939931 Chris Tivnan

        Guess it’s time to go to the store and buy a 12′er of old Milwaukee.

        • JJO

          12′er? Wimp. Don’t forget the Ding Dongs.

  • curtpick

    Sure to participate on the next one !

  • mbuckwash

    I will be attending Cigar Fest in two weeks and will be shipping some down to you, Bryan, for the contest. I will double check with you prior to sending them just in case. I don’t want t be that guy who ruins it for everyone simply because I am ignorant. I will do research prior to sending them, but the fact that these are new blends which haven’t hit the market yet…may throw me up.

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      If you aren’t going to Thompson and sending $1 bundle cigars and aren’t sending cigarillos – you will be just fine :)

  • Johnnycatt

    bryan i just mailed my cigars for the contest, i hope they get to your house safely lol their coming from wisconsin!
