    So, it's your own fault if you don't have max entries and someone that does wins?

    This is 500 of console-y goodness. It should be fair for everyone.

    That's the target. We had 40 days and we're currently at 26. Let's do this. [/LeeroyJenkins]
    Thanks @X-13 for the stat-burst.

    I'm hoping that we exceed last year's figures. Number of posts looks likely to be achieved easily. We're quite close to having more entries than last year already too. The one I'd love to beat is the number of views; we're currently on 11K an need to make 45.5K - it's a big ask, but I'm hopeful.

    The possibility of bonus entries was always part of the bargain. Anyone who follows the thread and gets involved will be able to easily get their 3 entries before the 31st October. I'm certain that you'll have 3 by the end of the month. I want entrants to know that their contributions do not go unrewarded and the improved chance of winning daily prizes and the star prize are that reward.

    Actually 350 of console and up to 60 of gamery, but yes, a significantly valuable prize (and awesome thingy).

    Just to say a massive thanks to @VeryPC, Al and everyone else involved in doing this prize give away - especially with such a lovely prize ( of the PS 4 + Game ) etc. Oh and also allowing me to enter !!

    I'm going to say yes, because I've had quotes for personal stuff.

    Cheers @Little-Miss

    You can thank @VeryPC_Andy and @VeryPC_Tom_B for the commercial portions of the videos. I try not to ram it down your throats, but they're right to suggest a little bit of advertising as long as we can fit it in without taking over the video I think.

    You're not the first that the Glide has caught the eye of actually; we've had several enquiries since the first video to feature it. It is a pretty awesome product to be honest. We're getting it reviewed by one of your friendly neighbourhood publications soon so I'll post a link when that goes live (not sure on the exact time frame for publication yet).

    Anyone looking for more info on the Glide can find it on our website here: https://www.very-pc.co.uk/products/all-in-one-pc/glide

    That 45k is misleading though.

    That's 45k views from the time it was posted to today.

    Not 45k for the period it was being posted in.

    Missed the first few videos as I was away, but just watched the first one and laughed my head off at the size of my ticket! Love it! Make sure its that size for the PS4 draw
