No, it doesn't.  People misinterpret what "1 in 6" means.  Every time you buy a coffee, that's a 1 in 6 chance.  You've purchased 4, and lost on each one.  Chances are you will lose out on the next two as well, because the odds haven't changed to 1 in 2 chances to win.
Great! Now my dreams of a free coffee are shattered, SHATTERED! I tell you......

Coffee 20 is going downrange now; I'm still sitting at just one measley coffee. Darrell is at 4 - 7 (better than 1 in 2 for him right now).  ::)

Tall and Small cafe for me...though they hire emo girls to work there and that's not my thing. Though I am sure Hammer Sandwich will be moving here when he reads this.

I have a hate on for Tim's of late. I now firmly believe that if you are awarded a franchise then you should either, a) erect traffic lights complete with appropriate turning lanes, b) build at the back of a five acre lot to accommodate lineups for drive through, c) be located five miles from town centres (I'm willing to bend for non-standalone locations, like in office buildings) I loathe Tim's traffic.
Be nice for no reason.

If you would just go as the Batman here, you'd avoid all that Tims Traffic ;D

0 for 2.  As I walked up to the counter, a guy was celebrating because he just won $100.  (It was an XL cup and I bought a small, so I wouldn't have got that cup in any event.)

Busy weekend and some tme on the road so no we're 1-9, free doughnut! Yay!!

I actually find it surprising that with the CF's penchant for Tim's and the amount of cups purchased by members that no one on the site has had a major win yet. (unless I've missed something...)

On Saturday, I drove from Montreal to Gagetown and then back again (19 hour trip, LOTS of Timmies). Two extra people in the truck on the way back ... and still no winning cups en route. Have also been playing online every day. Nada there either. Well over 40 coffees now and have won only a single damn coffee. Not impressed.  >:(

At least they were winners, with the exception of the mad woman.  I may still join her.  Still a shut out.  I may as well change my name to Maple Leafs.  I'd wager they'll see a winning cup before I do.   :rage:
