    E Então é verdade ou nâo? Eu também recebi, mas como não tenho sorte ao jogo acredito que seja mais uma tentativa de burla. Alguém que me diga por favor o que é isto? Obrigado.

    I received just in this month three or more winning prices, since Microsoft email promo to Tobacco Award Company, and search in web for the true about it and it´s a SCAM, IN JUST ONE MONTH IF IF THIS SCAM WAS TRUE I BECOME BILLIONARE, don´t belive it, and if possible go to FRAUDWATCHERS.COM or another sites and report the email you received, I am sorry, but You don´t win anything, and even you are "stupid", and play with that scam you will lose Money, OPEN YOUR EYES, OR DO A SEARCH IN WEB BEFORE SEND ANYTHING TO THAT SCAM´S EMAIL´S... Como a Paulina disse, eu também não tenho sorte ao jogo.
