For those sweepstakers who love the hunt, thrill and adrenaline rush of seeing those magical words, “Congratulations, You are a Winner!” then online instant win games are just what you need.
The web is filled with instant win contests. To find some of them, Google search the words, “instant win contests,” or “instant win sweepstakes,” and you should be able to find plenty to keep you busy.
As always, my motto is “Read the Rules.” Just because a contest is online does not mean you meet the qualifications to enter it. Many contests are limited to certain states, counties, ages, and other criteria.
Online instant win contests are usually designed by the sponsors of those websites, to draw thousands to their site. It really is cheap advertising when you calculate the total amount given away in prizes, versus the worldwide exposure they will get.
So how do these contests work and do people really win them? The answer to both those questions is a resounding yes, yes, yes.
Many of the instant win contests are set up on a timer or number count. In other words, if you just happen to be entering at 5:37 pm and that is when they have scheduled to award a prize, bingo, you win. Or the site may be set up to award a prize after so many entrants have entered. Again, this is a whole lot of chance but it is also great fun. The anticipation of maybe seeing those winning words, is such a high for us sweepstakers.
Some of the contests require a little bit of skill, such as entering the correct answer from a television series you had to have watched, or it could be an arcade type of game where you have to toss a basketball through a hoop, pick the right package or match up products. If you love games, then what better way to spend your time, than playing games with the added incentive of maybe also winning a great prize.
One of the drawbacks to online instant sweepstakes is the exposure. Remember you are competing with entrants from all of the United States and anytime you have those kinds of odds, naturally your chances of winning are also reduced.
Many people are afraid to enter contests online because they fear that their information will be used for scamming purposes. Contests must be bonded and companies are very strict about not giving out your information. Pay attention when you are entering because on the entry form, many boxes are already checked giving the company the right to contact you for other offers. All you have to do is uncheck the box and then you do not have to worry about getting unwanted email or mail.
So get some instant gratification, from those online instant wins!
