CO Cigar Lottery 14 Update 1

Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 in World of CO

ipw0008Cigar Obsession Lottery #14, Update 1!

We have a new sponsor this round, General Cigar! Please show them some love in welcoming them to the contest! In addition to the 150 cigars the winner this time shall receive a gorgeous 100+ count unit from them – help me support them, they support you!

This is the first update for lottery #14! 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!


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 2 or 4 cigars, for one or two entries per person/mailing address. Yes you can put all 4 cigars in one package. Damaged sticks will not be entered.


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 humidification, 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 $6 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 tracking (priority already includes it along with $50 insurance), I am not responsible for lost shipments, do not ask me about them. All entries will be shown in update videos.


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 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.

    Hey General Cigar, thank you so much for your contribution to the lottery, it looks like it’s going to be another awesome lot–the current entries are looking mighty fine!

    Apologize for the shipping SNAFU. I certainly didn’t intend to piss you off. That’s what I get for letting my wife mail them. I nearly choked when she gave me the receipt. Lesson learned.

    • Bryan Glynn

      No no – making me go to the post office pisses me off – I was home for this one :) Yeah don’t trust a woman LOL!

    • Ken Roberts

      You have a great wife!

      She knows how you love cigars, and she did the best she knew to do . . . .

      go give her a big kiss!

      • johncp1962


        You couldn’t have been more correct! When I asked my wife why she spent so much to ship the cigars she said, “I know how well you take care of yours [cigars] and how particular you are when you’re about to receive a shipment that I take them in right away,…”

        What could I say?

        I did give her a big kiss!

        Thanks Ken, you’re a smart guy.


        • Ken Roberts

          Good goin’ John!

          Take good care of that Angel!

  • lrogers

    150×14=2100 cigars. That’s crazy.

    • chief791

      150×14=2100+30=2130. That is even crazier.

  • rockjock

    Thanks General Cigar for supporting such a great and independent cigar reviewer.

    I remove the cellophane from my cigars for their nap in my humidor. Do you have any issue accepting smokes that have the wrapper removed for the lotto?


    • David

      Sorry for misspelling your name!!

    • Bryan Glynn

      Not at all, you’re good!
