to get the helsing In a crate it said 10% chance.  to me that means that if you"re lucky you might get it earlier . otherwise that means 1 out of 10.  so if you got 10 crates you should get 1.  I bought 13 crates and I didn" get one. what kind of company is this?

They need to give me that tank.  In my mind I more than paid for it.

They did not false advertise .... it's a 10% chance each time you open a crate. It does not work that if you buy 10 then you get the tank. It's you have a 10% chance on EACH container.

No, you had a 65% chance of getting the helsing if you bought 10 crates. You had a 75% chance if you bought 13 crates. Hmm, it now becomes apparent to me why casinos prohibit children from entering...lol

Well they"ll never get my money again that way and now because of that waste of money I'm not going to renew my premium every month and won"t buy additional tanks.

If you are really are 64 years old, society has failed. Go review statistics, you should have had to take that class in high school. Even if you never took stats, by age 64 we'd expect that you'd know 1) not to gamble and 2) that buying something with a 10% chance to get main prize doesn't mean buying 10 and being guaranteed to get the main prize.
 

Here's a breakdown of how the odds with the price.

1 container: 10% (0.1) chance to get the tank (approximately $10 + tax)

5 containers: 41% ($45 + tax)

10 containers: 65% ($75 + tax)
13 containers: 75% ($105 (or more) + tax)

20 containers: 88% ($150+tax)

45 containers: 99% ($Are you crazy?)

In the future, you probably should calculate the odds yourself before you spend money on something. I'll save you some time and just give you the formula: (1-.9^(amount of crates you buy)). The .9 is there is if the odds are 10% chance of getting the main prize. If the odds are 20% chance, then it would be .8, and if they were 5%, it would be .95, and so on. Subtract the decimal value of the percentage of winning the main prize from 1.0, and then that's what you put in.)
