Congratulations to our winners — Commenters: #6 Anna; #7 Jerry; and #8 Christine!
The official game attendance as per the ESPN boxscore was 74,326. Comment #26 (Jerry) was the exact match winner, while Anna’s Comment #25 was the next lowest number and Christine’s Comment #27 was the next highest number. Click here for a table showing how the additional entries were distributed.
We are in the process of contacting Jerry, Anna, and Christine to arrange delivery of the Green Smoke Pro Kits.
Thank you to all who participated, and special thanks to Green Smoke for sponsoring this event.
As it would appear (as of 7:30 P.M. EST on 4/8/13) that there will be fewer than 100 entries, the following changes are made.
Any remaining entries (the numbers between 100 and the actual number of entries) will be evenly divided amongst the current entries with any remaining numbers voided.
For example: if there are only 22 entries, each entrant will receive 3 additional entries. Comment #1 would receive #01 plus #23, #45, and #67. Comment #2 would receive #02 plus #24, #46, and #68, etc. In this instance, the leftover numbers that can not be divided equally would be 89 thru 100 (00). Those numbers would be voided. Should the last two digits of the game’s attendance match a voided number, the second-to-last and third-to-last digits of the game’s attendance would be used to select the winning number plus the next highest and lowest number winners. Should that also result in the selection of a voided number, the third-to-last and fourth-to-last digits of the game’s attendance would be used to select the winning number plus the next highest and lowest number winners. This method would be repeated as necessary until it produces a selection that is not a voided number.
Any rules not mentioned above remain the same.
In all cases regarding the Giveaway, the decisions of eCigs HQ Editors are final.
March Mania begins on Tuesday, March 19th and ends on Monday, April 8th.

The first game of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament is presently scheduled to tip off in Dayton, Ohio at 6:59 PM EST (5:59 PM CST, 4:59 PM MST, 3:59 PM PST) on Tuesday, March 19th.

The first 100 Comments approved have a 1 in 33.3 chance to win!
While you may comment at any time after the tournament-opening tip-off until the end of the championship game, only the first 100 approved Comments will be eligible to win. Each approved Comment is automatically assigned a number that is visible upon publication, and that number is your ticket to win.
Here’s how you win!
The National Championship Game takes place on Monday, April 8th at the Georgia Dome. The first winning ticket will be the Comment Number that MATCHES the last two digits of the official game attendance as posted in the ESPN boxscore. The second winning ticket will be the Comment Number that is ONE LESS than the last two digits of the official game attendance as posted in the ESPN boxscore. The third winning ticket will be the Comment Number that is ONE GREATER than the last two digits of the official game attendance as posted in the ESPN boxscore.
Last year’s boxscore is here:
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you’ll note that the official game attendance is listed as 70,913. If 70,913 turns out to be the attendance again this year, the winners would be Comment #13 (comment number matches the last two digits of the attendance), the next lesser number, in this case, Comment #12, and the next greater number, in this case, Comment #14. The persons who provided Comments #12, #13 and #14 would each win a Green Smoke Pro Kit plus the 4 extra Packs of FlavorMax™ Cartomizers. It’s that easy — or complicated — however you choose to see it.
