I JUST LOST A MILLION POINTS!!!

Is anyone else out there crazy enough to do something like that or am I all alone. I just wagered a million+ points, lost on some damn Bible Trivia (not my strong point by any means) question.

Just wondering if I am alone and also looking for a bit of sympathy.

Wow!!! Since I just becamse a Gold Member, I only just started using my wager tokens. I wagered 25K yesterday and won, and the same today and lost. Since I broke even, i shouldn't be upset but I'm disappointed. I think I would need to sit down and rest if I lost a million points. You have my sympathy!

Go to the leaderboards at the top of the page and click on it. On that page you will see "wager records". Click on that; that should make you feel better. a million points is chump change to some of these big winners and losers. And remember,
1. It's only points
2. Never bet unless it's a sure thing
I'll bet, like the rest of us, that your heart was pounding though when you took the plunge.

How do you you use the wager tokens? Is it part of a showdown?

Well I'll be...I finally, at long last, made the top five on something. Too bad it had to be biggest wager LOSERS!!!

Really though, I do feel better, thanks Diane!

Don't feel bad! I lost 900,000 about 2 weeks ago due to a stupid mistake on my part (thought I clicked the right answer and didn't...I knew what the correct answer was!)and it still stings! Hey, it's only points and there are others who have lost a heck of a lot more!

And those Leaderboard figures are only for this month!
In the recent past I've won and lost 3.5 million - story of my life!

Thank goodness we're not talking about real money, huh? It really is amazing though how absolutely devastating losing those sploofus points can be! 3.5 million might be enough to push me over the edge.

It's good to see damn and Bible Trivia used in the same sentence again. Way to go!

My apologies to any one I may have offended...I have no ill feelings towards the Bible, the Lord, etc., just toward the damn Bible Trivia question that took away my million points.

Who the heck knows where Isaac was born??? It coulda been anywhere...I will, however, now know for eternity that the correct answer to that question is Gadar.

I lost 750K on Aug 31. I was ranked 52nd alltime at the time and wanted to get it right so I would finally get my top 50 av. The catagory was music and thats my strong point. I flubbed it. I just got 2 Showdows won at a total of 500K, so I am close to even and have to wait till the end of this month to get my Av.

I've lost over 13 million on a wager if that makes you feel any better! And I can't even remember what the question was, so the answer won't be going to my grave with me either!!

Hey, you know what-- NO GUTS NO GLORY! I usually wager the max (except I wimped out my last time and wagered 3/4). You'll get your points back soon.

Thats right. Go big or go home. I would hate to know that I only bid 250K on a possible 1M and get it right

I always wager the max. No pain, no gain...and Troy, I do in fact feel much better after hearing about your loss, so thanks a bunch!

Clearly luck is not on my side...I also didn't win the Powerball...and I was counting on that 47 million bucks.

You can use wager token only on the Quiz of the day. There is a box you check before you click the go to the question button.

This takes you to a page which asks you how much you want to bet. You can bet a maximum of 25% of your current total. It also tells you what the maximum bet is.

I failed to see one of the questions. As it turns out, I didn't see the correct answer. I guessed and lost. Pretty dumb on my part....

I did it at the beginning of the month! On a stupid TV question-which normally is one of my strong suits-but not anything from Animal Planet-which this question was. Very depressing. I feel your pain. lol
