Oh no, is this the end of happy ringpull prizes ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Hahaha....the first one of those I pulled my first reaction was that I'd won $1000, short lived obviously/unfortunately...now I seem to get just as many of the 1000KHR tabs as 1 free beer tabs
Bingo. That's what I thought and Mrs Cargo was at the market at the time so I excitedly sent her the pic and she replied with 'wow'........I obviously didn't get the sarcasm until she got home.. Yuh, this is the first one I've pulled and not even worth a free can. Boo!
LOL I sent a pic to a Cambodian friend for confirmation and he responded 'wow' as well. Bastard. :facepalm:

Lol. Win half a can of beer. It's the recession. :plus1:
Haven't seen one of those yet, but there seem to be less winners this month. :(

I'm still averaging about half a case of winning pull tabs per case, but the highest percentage of them are these bloody 1000 KHR ones, no problem, just keep saving them up and cashing the lot in for free cases.

Yeah, we've been had. Nearly every win is only half a can these days. Now we have to drink twice as much beer.
I think they might be on to something. :beer1:

Anchor have now jumped on the winning pull tab bandwagon as well, a friend of the families just won $10,000! He's had his picture plastered all over facebook receiving his giant $10k cheque.
