Instant Win Contest Tips

Even using just a few of the below tips you can increase your chances of winning instant prizes more often. 

All the current instant win contests are right below these instant win contest tips!


Before entering any instant win contest take the few minutes to read the terms and conditions of the contest, so you know what your odds are and other small details. Some instant win contests will go as far as to tell you certain dates that certain instant win prizes will be set to go off in the algorithm.


Enter as often as allowed - Most instant win contests set a 24 hour period limit before you can enter again for your chance at winning a prize. Many though do allow you to come back every few hours or to enter twice a day to win an instant prize. XBOX ran an instant win contest a few years ago that you could enter every 4 hours! Those are exciting instant wins contests to take apart of.


Disable your ad and pop up blockers. Almost all instant win contests have a pop up system to alert you that you have won a prize. Take the few seconds before entering any instant win contests to make sure you don't have a pop-up blocker active. If you miss the pop up that you are a winner, you may end up losing out on that prize.

The pop up in the Mars contest from last year had the skill testing question to claim my instant win prize. If that pop up had been missed, even though I technically won, I wouldn't be getting a prize because I wouldn't have answered the mathematical question and completed the actual win.


Time of entry matters. Common times during the day many people are entering to win an instant prize, which actually makes it much harder to score an instant prize. If you really want to win a prize being offered in an instant win contest, make sure to enter at the most random OFF times.

Find out the BEST time to enter an instant win contest! Its NOT 4-8 AM!

With that being said, each contest is different. You can learn the contests hot hours by watching other people's posts to see what time of day they won. Learn by your own entries too. If you entered at 2 PM  and were not a winner, don't enter at 2 PM again. Make sure that your next daily entry is at a different time of day. 

5. Pin-Code instant win contests 

Pin code contests can really offer some great high value prizes but entering them at the right times is very important. Do NOT enter more than one pin code at a time. So if you have 4 pin codes for a chance to win an instant prize, enter only one per day and at all different times. I can't even count how many instant win prizes I have won with pin codes by entering them in the very last hour of the contest. Patience is sometimes a virtue in contest winning.

6. Mobile VS desktop 

Before entering any instant win contests the rules are a must. MANY especially Facebook based instant win contests don't allow entry from a cell phone. Each instant win contest performs differently and trying different browsers can also help. 

Some may be perfect for entering from your cell, others not so much. 

7. How Many Family Members Can Enter

When it comes to instant win contests most allow each adult in your home to enter. Check out the rules to the contest and see what their limits are. If the entry rules are one entry per person per day, then your spouse, adult kids who live at home, or roommates can enter too. 

Wishing You Good Luck!
