Assuming no 50% retry then, it's 1,000 * 5,000 = 5,000,000, about 10% of the price of using Kingpin. But you're going to pull the handle ten times as many times using Smuggler as you would using Kingpin.

That's Expected Value which is something like average. Some will get insanely lucky. Some will never ever get it via pulls no matter how many credits they put in or how many times they pull the lever.

Luck a horrible way to run an event with such a colossal reward just teased at players.. I been a Star Wars fan since child hood played almost everything lucasarts put out, been a sub to TOR since launch and I have collectors edition from launch back when they said we'd get exclusive stuff.. I've spent well over $500 in cartel coins over the past year+ in "support" of Star Wars (my excuse) yet Dumping my $$ that I converted to credits into an "Event" just to watch as people in chat claim rancor after boasting they don't even care about Star Wars or about the mount itself and plan to sit in fleet doin nothing but brag or better yet claim they're 5th and 6th rancor!!! I have nothing and I'm 2.5 mil deep in smuggler tokens - how many KP tokens is that? At least BW please give a % bonus device or something from the collectors edition vendor that makes it a tad less hair pulling for CE ppl I don't think many can argue that ..I just wana pop rancor and go back to PVE and PvP I haven't seen my guild since the patch cuz I'm in the casino and if I give up and go home I'll look at every KP rancor I see as a monument to how much being a true fan has no meaning anymore..
