Does anyone know which contests contain the most multipliers?
Thanks...NØAG

In terms of conventional "single multiplier contests", WPX certainly comes to mind.

In single multiplier contests scores grow (at least for a while until the multipliers get saturated) like the butt in chair time squared.

There's a RTTY contest out there where the final score is "points times qsos times multipliers", score grows like butt in chair time cubed, and top scores regularly are in the billions. It's the "Volta RTTY contest".

I think it would have to be WPX, since --theoretically-- the number/letter combinations that can be used to create prefixes is infinite.
