% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The popularity of sweepstakes competitions has surged in America in recent years, thanks partly to digital innovations that can connect participants together from all corners of the globe. The average prize amount in a sweepstakes contest is $369, but there are many competitions where the prizes can reach tens of thousands or even millions of dollars.

If you’re new to the world sweepstakes and do know where to start, you have come to the right place. Whether it’s PCH sweepstakes, HGTV sweepstakes, or lunchables sweepstakes, there are a few golden rules for success that everyone should know. Read on to find out more. 

1. Always Choose a Trustworthy Sweepstakes Competition

No matter what types of prizes you are looking for, it is crucial that you opt for a known and trusted sweepstakes competition. There are countless thousands of online sweepstakes out there, no all of which are worth your time.

For example, well-known and successful play from home internet sweepstakes such as Cash My Minutes are a good place to start, as there is no shortage of real customer testimony from happy participants. 

2. Put in the Hours

Many of the most successful sweepstakes players understand that persistence is absolutely key. You should be entering multiple sweepstakes and taking the time to enter as many as possible on a daily basis.

It does not have to take over your life – you can easily enter Travel Channel sweepstakes or digital sweepstakes while multitasking in just a few seconds. Any winner will tell you that persistence pays off. 

3. Be Strategic 

Do not just enter any and all sweepstakes that you come across. You need to be strategic and know which ones to prioritize. Consider how popular a particular competition is and whether the pay-off is actually worth your time. Be selective and make sure to choose sweepstakes that are well-timed and that are known to give out good prizes. 

4. Read the Rules 

With any sweepstakes competition, always read the small print. The last thing you want is to think you have won, only to find out a few minutes later that you are not eligible to collect your prize because of a technicality. Make sure you are eligible for all competitions that you enter. Check the age limits, country specifications, and mailing requirements. 

5. Learn How to Spot a Scam

Finally, it is absolutely essential that you know exactly what a scam sweepstake looks like so that you can steer clear and stay safe. Remember, a legitimate sweepstake will never ask for your credit or debit card information.

They will never use high-pressure tactics to get you to participate. Watch out for sweepstakes attached to personal email accounts, or sweepstakes claiming you have won a competition that you cannot recall entering. This will help you to enjoy totally safe and fun sweepstakes gaming.
