Arrow BREAKING NEWS: Official Odds of Trading Card Series 2!

For those that have been keeping up with our articles on the new Webkinz Series 2 Trading Cards, we have our final update regarding the odds of completing the Virtual Binders in Webkinz World. We've been told directly by Ganz that the initial experiences of users were actually a glitch in the system, which has since been corrected.

Apparently, when people were opening their cards earlier last week in our first article, the systems in Webkinz World were giving out much higher odds than Ganz had intended. The current behavior, detailed in our previous article, is how the cards are supposed to work and there is no glitch.

We've been told directly by Ganz that the "At Paw Level" cards (the hardest to complete) are inserted "1 in every 18 packs". The other sets are inserted at "1 in every 9 packs". We've also been told that each of the harder to complete sets (Challenge, Snapshots, At Paw Level) has its own duplicate check, but not a total duplicate check for the collection.

For example, you will not receive any duplicates for any of your sets, until that set is completed. So, if you complete the Challenge set, it becomes eligible for duplicates as soon as it is completed.

Ganz has also added an "extra virtual pack" as one of the standard feature code prizes in order to increase the odds in our favor, as well.

With these actual numbers on stated odds, Ganz estimates that it will take approximately 4 boxes of trading cards (144 packs) to unlock the Series 2 Trading Card Grand Prize. This is substantially more than the lucky few who were able to unlock the entire collection at around 50 packs, but much better odds than unlocking the Series 1 Grand Prize!

Thank you to all of our users for bearing with us while we got to the bottom of this. Now that you know the actual odds and that there are no glitches, you can decide whether or not Series 2 Trading Cards are for you!

Good information. Some seem to be finishing easily while others are having a hard time. Luck of the draw I would say. Thanks for the information though.

Thank you so much for the update. I really like the duplicate check. That was the main problem with series 1. I have only opened a few cards but I think I will try a box now!

Yup...better...but not thanks. We'll do the occasional packs here and there but I won't do that many boxes.

But thanks Justin! Great info!!!

Thank you so much for the info Justin, not sure if I am going to collect them all now. Took forever to collect them all on first series. Why is Ganz introducing so much at once, pets,cards, purses, stationary etc.? Don't they realize there are so many who can't afford all this at once. I have been reading all the posts and seeing children complaining that their parents won't let them buy anymore and others telling them to whine, cry etc. I can understand the childrens frustration but a parent can just do so much, there are other more important things in life that must be paid for first. Naturally children want everything that is popular, but in this instance I feel Ganz is going overboard with all the items. Webkinz is great as it has brought so many adults and children together with something they can share, but Ganz better slow down and work on the gliches first because they are losing customers fast and causing many family fights over all these new items.
I am so glad we have WI to get all the Webkinz info and everyone can post their opinions.

Thanks for the info Justin! It still seems like quite a few packs to open I doubt we will be buying that many card packs.

wow....I was so excited when I was seeing people unlocking everything with 50 or so packs...I have only bought a few packages of TC series 1 packs for the simple reason that I had been seeing a lot of people saying they had bought ridiculous amounts of TC boxes and still were missing one or two cards...I actually considered purchasing a box or two of the new series, I just hope it doesnt take like 5 boxes lol
