One of the best things about our fantastic ICS community is that we can count on you to not only voice your opinions on surveys, but also reach out to us individually with your suggestions and opinions.
We want you to know that we do listen!
Sooooo…..we are very excited to announce that we now have a $2 lottery drawing every 4 hours throughout every day and night!
How will it work? The $2 drawings can only be entered by logging in during the 4 hour window before the next drawing and entering some of your coins, which will serve as the “lottery tickets” in the $2 drawing system.
How do you enter your coins? Once you log in to ICS, you will see 3 new buttons on the right hand side. The first one is the TICKETS button, which expands to allow you to see how much time until the next $50 drawing (oh yeah, we still have that!), the HeatMeter, and enables you to quickly and easily see how many you have entered, and buy even more tickets to enter into the drawing when you feel lucky. The middle one is the COINS button, which expands to allow you to see how much time until the next $2 drawing, its own HeatMeter, and you get to choose how many coins you want to enter. Remember that you will NOT get any coins entered AUTOMATICALLY, it is something you must take action to enter! And the last button is the REFERRALS (FRIENDS… INVITES) button that will expand to allow you to invite friends on the fly so you can win more cash!
You can enter as many coins as you wish from your stash. The more coins you enter, the higher your odds. You can’t win the $2 prize unless you enter coins in that drawing, or you earn a matching $2 prize from one of your invited friends.
So, coins can now be used for 2 purposes. You can use them as entries in the $2 drawing held every four hours, or you can convert them to lottery tickets for the next $50 daily drawing. Remember, you get five lottery tickets for each coin you convert.
Thanks for teaching us how to make ICS more fun!
P.S. New rules…
The $50 drawing will no longer be a matching prize to the member who invited the winner to ICS. Several research surveys and many emails have taught us that you’d rather have the $2 drawings with matching prizes than have matching for the $50 drawing. This is the only exception to our 100% match rule for cash wins.
Also, if a member fails to log in for 30 consecutive days, the cash in their account is forfeited, whether vested or not. Lots of cash is “tied up” in likely dead accounts and prevents us from giving as much away to active members as we’d like.
See the updated Rules and FAQs pages for full details.
We have replaced the old widget with the new one and it is live and available for you to embed on your blog or webpage. Don’t forget, if you still have the old one, remove it, and then replace it with the new one!

Ok, it’s kind of technical to explain but….
Our widget provider has switched platforms. Now, they are not supporting the previous platform. What this means to you and us is that all of the widgets that you have so industriously embedded around the Web-O-Sphere are now rendered useless. :o(
We are searching for a new widget provider. But there won’t be anything we can do to ever make the original ones work again. So if you are reading this and have a widget on your blog or webpage, please remove it and use your referral link instead until we have a new widget provider.
Once we do, we will let you all know!
We will be adding a brand new demo video to our website, but you can be the first to check it out!4 years ago
