The draw for the competition to win a copy of the set LEGO Ghostbusters 75827 Firehouse Headquarters worth € 389.99 has been made and the winner's name is displayed in the widget below. For information, the latter validated a total of 7 participation tickets.

Some details about this competition which attracted many participants: This operation was relayed by several sites which list the majority of the competitions organized everywhere on the internet.

Even if most of the "contest professionals" who arrived here through these sites have contented themselves with spamming the comments, believing they have validated their participation, a large number of them have also registered through the Gleam interface.

It is normal and legitimate. It is inconceivable to "reserve" this type of competition to a category of people and to exclude arbitrarily and on dubious criteria other potential participants.

In another register, cheating attempts, often awkward, were numerous and the participations concerned were invalidated before the drawing of lots so as not to distort the random nature of the latter.

Finally, the winner is not necessarily the one who validated the greatest number of tickets, it is not a ticket race. Validating tickets simply increases your chances.

I'll say it again, if you can't stand losing, don't play: There's only one winner and whether it's a LEGO fan or not, a regular blog visitor or not, a kid, an adult, a man or a woman, I don't care. He was drawn and therefore wins the bet.

Other contests will be organized regularly on the blog and on social networks. There is something for everyone: The brands or brands that provide the prizes, myself through the visibility generated, and ultimately the winner (s).

Before participating, I therefore invite you to take stock with yourself on your ability to accept losing without then coming to express your disappointment via the usual conspiracy theories.

That being said, thank you to LEGO for the prize, thank you to all participants for playing the game and well done to the winner who was contacted by email to organize the delivery of his very large gift.
