    I've never had the sales and specials + app even available to download, anyone else had this problem?
    Are you from the UK or US?

    Weird! The online terms (when you are logged in to the app) put the odds at 1:1000. This sounds a lot more reasonable... but makes it pretty much not worth playing...
    I figure that if you're on, it's worth a shot, but there isn't enough incentive to go out of your way to do it otherwise.
    It takes like two minutes to log on and scratch off the picture. Not a bad time sink at all, so there's almost no reason not to try. Good thing to do before you start playing, quickly do before you log off for the night, or even while you are waiting for friends/a boosting session to get set up, etc.
    I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

    It's even easier with Kinect, just say "Xbox, Reveal Image" or something to that effect and auto-magically you find out you are a loser (well, that has been my experience).

    Yeah I noticed that too. There were reports (including myself) of people who already owned the first game or two being unable to get the deal for the others, so maybe MS noticed and pulled it back to fix it or something? Who knows.

    Yeah I've been checking everyday, as I just need the last game, and each day the first game is only listed as unable to purchase or something like that. Changed to Gears today.
