    I tracked my gold scratchers for approximately the first two weeks in November (218 total scratchers), and here is what I got:
    3M: 42 (19%)
    5M: 122 (56%)
    8M: 41 (19%)
    12M: 13 (6%)

    Here is what I've gotten the last day and a half (this is not counting the two times I got all six 3M scratchers, as this was before I started counting again):
    3M: 20 (57%)
    5M: 5 (14%)
    8M: 6 (17%)
    12M: 4 (11%)

    If you assuming my 218 earlier trials reflect the actual underlying prior distribution, the probability of getting 20 or more 3M scratchers out of 35 trials is less than 1 in 1,000,000. You can look it up yourself on an online binomial calculator. And of course, I have experienced this count at the same time as many others are also reporting an overwhelming abundance of 3M scratchers.

    I think there is extremely strong evidence, both anecdotal and statistical, that Wynn has drastically changed the scratcher distribution, and this is not just typical gambling variance.

    I think I must have bokked myself as I had 5/5 3 millions last night on one of the challenges yesterday. I did get the 12 on the bonus, so not a complete wipeout :evillaugh:

    Be interesting to see wha the figures look like over the same sample, for sure.

    Now that would definitely make sense. When they have the bonus events, and all gold.

    I've not been playing all of them this weekend, but have there been any challenges with silver scratchers?

    Thanks for the data. Looks like they flipped the 3M and 5M probabilities for the most part. But could be worse I guess. Hopefully they didn't tighten the slots up at the same time.

    Thanks Wynn :rolleyes:

    Hopefully our long national nightmare of Thanksgiving scratchers is finally over. Here are the results I got from the last 131 gold scratcher this past week:

    3M: 72 (55%)
    5M: 23 (17.5%)
    8M: 23 (17.5%)
    12M: 13 (10%)

    It looks to me like the app essentially swapped the percentages for 3M and 5M, resulting in a reduction in average payout of about 1M/scratcher (from ~5.6M to ~4.6M).

    I didn't keep a record, but the last few days I felt like i was getting less 3M. In the beginning, all I seemed to get was 3M.

    I tend to agree. I'm still getting plenty of 3s but perhaps a smidge less than Thurs-Sun.

    Confirmed, Nerfed.

    Other random Nerfings (I just like using that word now):

    1449 spins to hit 2 bonuses to complete a scratcher event.
    18 Battles played to win 3 to complete a scratcher.
    6 Spins into a HBHB before I got any chips.

    I'm somehow up over a B in chips this past week, so it ain't all bad.

    Same for me! Used to get a lot of dragon bonus, but now it is just money eater with occasional bonus.
    And for scratchers I got 3M last 5 times out of 6, which seems sketchy

    Glad I found this thread. I have almost exclusively gotten only 3 for my gold scratchers for days now. I think in the course of about three days, I've had one 5 one 12 and ALL the rest have been 3. I would definitely call it a nerf. First they change how you get a room, then throw in this buffet misdirect, now they make the game not payout on your end goal every gambling session, the scratchers. It's as if they are trying to dishearten people from playing, all the while coming up with these new package to buy coins.

    But I digress.

    Yeah. I've had ALL 3's except for one five and one 12. Anyone contacted Wynn. I know I am.

    Just had to remove several off topic posts before things got out of hand.

    If anyone needs help using the ignore function, please let one of the moderators know and we'll be glad to help.

    Back on topic, now that I've hit level 2, I've not touched a scratcher, but the 3 million scratchers were killing me when I got under 50 million. Almost feels like they did this to get anyone with low chip counts and short time to make level 2 by buying chips. :hmmm:

    My observation is this nerf has carried on after the recent holidays. At least for me. Games also seem nerfed too. I'll take the time to save up bonus symbols to play all the way through to the platinum level and not even make the minimum to win anything. Multiple occasions of this. The app was rating just over one star not too long ago, now it's up to 3.9 stars. Lmao.
