I wouldn't give up on the finding of them though....
Yes it is an 80% chance but yesterday I only had 3 "Dud" out of 30 eggs (10 accounts x 2 chocolate and 1 White)

Today I had only 1 Dud out of 30
I got 29 prizes today - the White ones gave me 6 of 10 of the same item

I got
1 Bunny Top Hat
6 Candy Eggs Picnic Baskets (3 of which were on the same account)
6 Celebrate Spring Tea Cups
3 Cherry Blossom Wind Spinners
2 Eggcellent Spring Glasses
3 Spring Blossom Blazers
3 Spring Celebration Eggs
2 Spring Fling Dresses
3 Toothy Bunny Masks

No problem, it may seem like a waste of time, but you shouldn't give up, I got quite a few prizes today and this goes until Sunday so you have time to get the prizes. Good luck!!

Haha, yeah kind of like the Jumbleberrys except with the eggs there is a greater chance. (;

I just did inventory, and have had 69% prizes in my eggs, including the 2 batches I bought.
No water wheel, but at least one of everything else, with a total of 42 eggs / 29 prizes. Not as good as some are reporting, but hey - these are free prizes, and I like all of them. I especially am glad for the bunny ears hat since I doubt I'll ever have enough to trade for the bunny ears! I'm a happy camper! And there's still hope for the water wheel!

I didn't receive an egg on my account this morning

However, my kids' three accounts received theirs, we all got one white egg from Webkinz Newz, and the free egg from today's activities, and only one dud out of the bunch!

Got a few doubles, and still no bunny ears hat or water wheel (my top two wants from the egg prizes). Keeping my fingers crossed for some different prizes tomorrow!

i like the easeof gettingthe prize now, which is good but each egg should give each acct a prize. i feel so bad for those who get nothing and then read of all those who get multiple great prizes because they have multiple accts. not that they should not post their winnings, it jsut is not fun when you get dud after dud................ this is supposed to be fun for every acct.........

i know most of you want to hurl tomatoes at me now, but so be it i guess. .i can duck.

im jsut saying................. these eggs should all give a prize. end of story.
Basmat = I totally agree. The way they are doing this spring egg promotion is exactly like gambling. Gee - I didn't get the water wheel, so maybe I should buy some eggs. It is bad enough experiencing that feeling as an adult, but to program that addictive feeling in children is not a good thing. You are completely right.

Does anyone know if you get a egg each day (milk Chocolate ones on WW) if you don't log on; or is it only if you are able to log on each day to WW. Then of course you get the chance at two others one on WKN (the white egg) and another through out the day.

I agree with those who are disappointed with this event. You get an egg 1 egg and to have it be a dud does seem like a waste. I know I should appreciate the event but what harm would it be for all eggs to contain a prize...even a small one.

I can use a binomial probability formula to calculate this probability because there is a success/fail condition (either I receive a prize or I don't), the trials are independent, and the probability of success is the same for each egg I feed (80%).

These are the probabilities of each outcome of feeding 6 different eggs:

0 prizes - .000064
1 prize -- .001536
2 prizes - .01536
3 prizes - .08192
4 prizes - .24576
5 prizes - .393216
6 prizes - .262144

This makes sense because if I have a 4 out of 5 chance of being successful, how many times do you think I could go without having a successful attempt? I am far more likely to be successful each time out of 6 than to even miss half of them.

For this reason, I wonder about the actual probability because the circumstance I had has such a low chance of occurring. If I'm just unlucky, then more attempts should bring me closer to the actual probability of 80%.

One other note - if the probability of receiving a prize is 80%, then no other tricks like logging out and back in should have any effect on success. It may seem as if it does, but the chance is probably the same no matter where you are or how you feed your eggs.
That is too much math for me! Yesterday I opened 6 eggs and got two prizes, and today I opened 6 eggs and got 6 prizes. To me, that means my rate of success is 67%. Which is way lower than the advertised "chances".
