I personally hate the idea since if u do an offer you have a chance of winning nothing. I prefered the old way of being able to comment and get a ticket towards the lottery.
It would be nice if u were garunteed a win but your not and also a prize of 1 merit isnt the best and the best winnings arnt exactly brill.
With just the lottery it meant that you knew what u could win and also if u didnt win any points u could get more tickets for the next week.
Also this could be abused by people just clicking the links and then clicking offer as completed and going for the points etc.

I like it,i think its good i have won 1 merit! Out of 5 plays 1 merit haha. I think we can still get a lottery ticket when we can post comments again though, so this is kid of an additional bonus i guess.

I'm fine with the chance of not getting anything. Not getting a ticket with each offer is fine with me, but I wish that they'd bring back the comments. For the offers that are confusing, a comment that clears it up is very helpful.

I'd be happy if they brought back the comment box even if you don't get anything for commenting.

Spin2Win is to help people slow down on offers, that's why they limited it to 10 spins, so people don't keep doing offers for tickets, spins, etc. And they can't just mark it as complete and play spin2win, the offer will get denied, plus there is no point, seeing as there is a 10 spin a day limit. The winnings are better then before, now you can actually win more points for completing offers. There's even a chance to win 500 points I believe, so personally, I think it is a great idea. They just need to put the offer comments back up so new users know what to do.

There are some good opinins here. I guess I will build mine based on everyone elses.

I like that it is limited to 10 spins and people have to slow down on offers.

I don't think that removing the commenting option was the best of ideas, even if no rewards were given for commenting they certainly helped me and helped me help others.

Here is an interesting point "Also this could be abused by people just clicking the links and then clicking offer as completed and going for the points etc."

That is true but what idiot would sacrifice money for a risk to gamble LOLZ not me anyway. So long as people can't utilize this game on offers they normally couldn't do anyway. ie. someone from UK doing it to US offers and US doing it to UK offers etc.

I have faith they will make it well rounded and since it is new there will be some confusion and kinks to work out.

Great job as usual p2s staff

Unfortunately, the comments have to be removed because advertisers don't like the idea of people telling other people how to complete an offer. They think that kind of discussion generates less profitable participants in their offers. Keeping comments would mean losing lots of offers :(

So Spin2Win is not just something that p2s decided to do instead of comments, it's something they decided to do so that we could still earn stuff when comments were no longer allowed.

I think that over time the offers which use Spin2Win instead of comments will be better defined. Right now it's just for offers under 150 points and all others still have comments. Probably eventually some offers where user comments are not a problem for the advertisers will have comments again instead of the Spin2Win, but for now, 150 points makes a decent cutoff between the advertisers that hate comments and the advertisers that are indifferent to them.
