 My guess is only bots have won and PB is getting no response to their notification emails. Now they have to wait ten days and draw again, with maybe the same outcome, on repeat until they find a responsive human PB user.

 @nateb: I guess that they're keeping things themselves. Unbelievable how the world, since COVID lockdowns, has given up on timely customer service. PB seems to be on that train as well. Calling SHAW/TELUS you'll be lucky to have somebody answer within 60 - 90 minutes. Banks even worse but PB to be 1 month late and still nothing, they certainly have taken this to the extreme

 @pinkbikestaff I emailed the contest results email twice with no reply at all…. In my opinion an explanation is plenty overdue.

 Give up. I don't think that they are listening and caring about posting this information. Customer service has gone to shit across the organization and it's a pity that this is where PB ended up. I really enjoyed the time until they just stopped doing their job on this competition.

 why is Quebec not allowed ?
  • 4 0
 I saw someone saying this:

Mainly because all of the rules, regulations, announcements, promotion, and results need to be fully translated into French, AND submitted to and passed by the Régie des Lotteries du Québec, a heavily beauraucratic governmental watchdog body. The cost of all this generally exceeds the potential sales and promotional benefits. So many companies simply exclude Québec.

 @Poxi27: Thank you for your answer. I guess that makes sense. Sucks, but makes sense.
