Not easily amused.
Today I found this item on SLP: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p...a-047/10106426 (Actually I bought #20).
It's a gacha item, and when I rezzed it to unpack I got the choice of either accepting the prize or taking "the points". I chose the prize and never got any items.
So, at $199L I thought "what the hell" and bought #22 as well. This time, I didn't even get the little pop up.
Is this how gachas work? What did I do wrong? Is there a way to get my outfit?

Ya waz robbed. Resold gacha items can be a risk.

See if you can open the box manually and drag the contents to your inventory using edit mode > contents tab.
Sounds like it's scripted for a gacha event that lets you trade in items you don't want for a points balance to get some other unique item? In which case the box might have deleted itself when you chose an option anyway S: I am making wild guesses here, you might have been scammed but it could also be misunderstanding

I've never seen a gacha that worked like that.
From the description on MP it looks like you're out of luck. But that's an odd way to do things.

That sounds like an Epiphany item. The box would have deleted if you choose points, but not if you chose prize, and you should be able to open it and get the item, as Zii said.

That is something from Epiphany.
When you buy an item from the current round of the event you can either open the prize or redeem it for points and after you have X number of points you can get one of the special prizes that are offered. I've bought stuff at and from Epiphany but I've never redeemed anything for the special item.
