Same problem here. Lost 7 tickets over the last 6 hours and it just keeps spinning and then saying an error occurred. I don't see any way to check and see if it's fixed other thatn to try and spin again but I just keep losing tickets. Can the devs notify us that there's a problem and give an eta for a fix?
I have tested this in different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE8 and Safari from Windows; Safari, Camino, Firefox and Opera from Mac) and the results are the same:
SLOT MACHINE IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. About 80% of the attempts end up in the "An error occured while drawing results" message popping up, eating your tickets in the process (this will not be apparent until a few minutes later).
DO NOT USE THE SLOT MACHINE, it is bugged. Please UR staff, fix it, the new prizes look awesome!
I experienced the same phenomenon as greatness48 (even though I lost only 2 or 3 tickets, as I only used the one free ticket I got at a time). I don't got any workaround, but just can confirm, that it's not a problem with your specific pc / connection setup, but is more widespread: We're at least two and probably a lot more people who didn't report (yet).
