How do you collect these Landscaping Luxurious Contracts?

Thanks,

Under the Greenhouse you'll find a contract called Landscaping Luxurious. You start the contract and wait 4 hours to collect, you can supply your businesses with the collected ones after.

Sadly it isn't about how much industry you have. Most players have 6 industries(current max) and we all have 24hrs a day. So the winner will be someone who has more than 24hrs a day, or to say it in a different way, someone who use gems to play. Let's say somebody uses 2000gems to speed up the collecting, which gives a very advantageous position to win, and he can still get 3000-2000=1000gems free easily.

But all of this is just a strategy for teamlava to earn money. They give out gems in no cost, it is basically a data(or some pixels). And yet if you do buy gems to win, they earn REAL MONEY.

I am not judging players to use real money to play games. But if you don't think you can win, I suggest not participating because the the Landscaping Luxurious Contracts give 160goods and needs 4hr, while the idea factory has an option to give 180goods that requires 2hr of waiting.

They said its not highest contracts win, just an added chance...
So even if you do use gems to speed up things, u still are counting on chance at the end.

If they just discount the gems by 80%, I would be more than willing to spend 20$ a month....but as of right now, I'm not going to spend even a single cent thanks to their ridiculous pricing and gem trap clicks.

Thanks for the clarification; even though I play the game I didn't recognize the item requirement for what it was. I usually just click on the best "goods" producer and move on.

~The More Contracts you collect, the higher chances you have to win~
~This Sweepstakes is not whoever collects the most

I'm confused.......so, they will pick the sweeptakes winner based on what ?

Have you found it? It's in the industry ( market menu ). If you've already had 6 factory, try to store one then click industry on market menu.

1. Tap Market from the game screen.
2. Tap Industry to see all of the Industry buildings.
3. Tap Greenhouse to build one in your city. You can have up to 6 Industry buildings. You can unlock more by raising your population.
4. Once your Greenhouse is constructed, order Landscaping Luxuries.
5. When the order is ready, collect the Landscaping Luxuries for 1 entry in the sweepstake!

Participation in the sweepstake is entirely optional. Using Gems to speed up orders and collect will give the player more chances to win. It does not guarantee that they will win the prize. This sweepstake gives everyone a chance to win Gems without spending any money at all. Just keep collecting Landscaping Luxurious Contracts to increase your chances of winning.

It's a raffle, so the winners will be randomly picked. If you want to increase your chances of winning, just keep earning more entries by collecting Landscaping Luxurious Contracts. Try to collect as many as you can before the sweepstake ends on Monday at 12pm PST!

How do you guys pick the winners? 3,000 gems could've helped cover some of the EXPENSIVE gem items. 200 gems for a small house?! Really?

83,322 players participated? That's a lot. I knew that most players were not on the forums.
With 903,666 Landscaping Luxuries Contracts, that means players did about 11 of them for the contest.
I did about 90 of them.. that means I had a chance of 1/(903666/90) = 1/10000 of winning.

I would love to have them as a Neighbor so I can stop by and see how they decide to spend the Gems!!!
