We have our winners!
Today, we finally counted all the skittles in the three jars live on Periscope and discovered that there were 4449 skittles in the jars in total.
This means that the winners are:
1st Place: Mark Love – 4450 (wins an iPad Mini 4)
2nd Place: Tracey Stokes – 4445 (wins a portrait of her choice drawn and signed by us)
3rd Place: David Cooper – 4441 (wins a Kuro Dragon mug and a packet of Skittles)
In addition to this, Stacey Hepple was selected at random from the entrants that shared the LinkedIn post as the winner of all the Skittles.
Over the last 4 weeks we have received entries from contestants in 24 countries around the world including India, Pakistan, Sweden and Malta to name just a couple.
Guesses ranged from 7 to 3830037 with the average guess being 3789.
The most common guess was 3000, which was guessed by 10 people. This was closely followed by 2016 (9 people) and 3333 (8 people).
Interestingly, an overwhelming 69% of our entrants were male.
175 people watched the counting of the Skittles on Periscope, including individuals from Sweden and Miami.
Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the competition and congratulations to the winners!
