500 entries?

Amazing. Guess everyone's chances just went down

Good luck.

If you want to look at it in a purely material way your chances of winning this contest may have gone down but with a high number of readers clicky, clicking banners and what not means that Techgage will be around for quite some time to offer more and more contests.

For me the more review sites that continue on the more resources I have available before I buy a piece of hardware.

Better odds than winning the lottery.

Plus it makes it that much more sweeter for whoever wins.

I don't know, I always find it sweeter beating someone Mano y Mano, rather than Mano y Manos.

So, what you're saying is that you'd rather win a 1-on-1 fight than a 1-on-2 or 3 fight?

I don't have plans to reveal the entry numbers going forward, and I shouldn't have even mentioned them above. I might at the end of the contest, but I don't think it's important.
