The draw was yesterday (glad you were able to sort out your problems). The meter is still showing 100%. When does it start counting towards the next one, and my points get credited?

Hi Dave,

The meter is not reset until the prize is claimed.  If the winner is inelligible we do another drawing immediatly.  

While the meter is at 100% from the previous period all the points generated after the closing time are tracked in the background and applied to the new drawing period.  When the meter is reset it will reflect the points tracked in the background since the close of the previous period.  Sometimes it is 10% of the way to the next drawing.

I see, seems reasonable. It'll probably be a lot more than 10% this time :-)

The counter is reset now. Yeah, it is a little more than 10% this time... a pretty good jump toward the next drawing, at any rate!
