What are Instant Win Games? (IWG)
Instant Win Games are games of chance with an instant outcome. You play the game and instantly know if you've won or not. Unlike a lottery ticket where numbers are selected once or twice a week, Instant Win games are like the scratch off ticket that lets you play and win instantly.
What Types of Instant Win Games are there?
Spin to Win Games, Prize Drop Games, Scratch Off Games, Match Games, Bouncy Box Games – Pretty much any type of game that contains random odds of winning or losing can be turned into an instant win game. They're simple to play and if you're not 100% sure on what to do, they have instructions on how to play.
What should I do before playing an Instant Win Game?
READ THE RULES! Most of the time, there are clear instructions for entering. It is important to follow these instructions so you're eligible to enter and receive the prize. There is nothing worse than winning but because you overlooked a requirement, you're ineligible to receive your prize. If you're required to watch a small video, watch the video. If you need to click a link, click the link. If they say you can't use a PO BOX, give a physical address. Always do the required actions before trying to win a prize.
Where can I find a list of Instant Win Games?
We have one! Shocking right? LOL! We have a list of Instant Win Games that stays up to date and at any given time we have between 30-50 on our list.
Current List of Instant Win Games - If you want wins, I suggest bookmarking this page and entering daily. Most instant win games allow you to enter daily and some of them have thousands (even hundreds of thousands) of prizes up for grabs. The more often you enter them the more likely you are to get a win!
I Instantly Won! Now what?
VERIFY Your Instant Win Before Exiting the Game! Make sure you get conformation that you won. If the Game sends an email invoice of your win, check your email and follow any further instructions. If the game gives you a ticket number, save the number. Verify your shipping address if you won a physical prize that needs to be shipped. Never just assume you won and close the game. Make sure they have the correct information and that your Instant Win is coming to you!
What are the Odds to Winning Instantly.
Every Game has a set of odds for winning and some odds are better than others. These odds are programmed into the game and listed in the details and disclaimers section.
Exanples: Prize rewarded on every 500th spin • Total of 4 winners (In this example, the 500th, 1000th, 1500th 20000th person(s) to spin will win.)
Your odds of an Instant Win will change for every game you play.
Can I increase my odds at Instant Win Games?
YES! It takes a little planning but you can increase your chances by playing at the right time. Lets use the example above. If a game becomes active at 8am and the first win is issued to the 500th spin, your odds of winning are better at 8:30am rather than at 8:02 – Give the IWG a little time to mature. Allow enough time for 499 people to play. It's not a guarantee that you'll be the 500th person, but your odds are a lot better than playing the second a game goes live.
Another tip to play is to pick when you want to enter. Some of the instant win games are set up to award prizes on a timer, or like every xxx minutes depending on the prizes. With those what you will want to do is try and pick a good time to enter. We have many readers who have better look over night when less people are online.
Another time you can pick when to play is try to figure out when more people are entering and wait a bit after a rush. Lets say a big site (like Julie's Freebies) posts an Instant Win Game, you might bookmark that one and wait until later in the day when there isn't a rush on it.
How can I tell if an Instant Win Game is legitimate or Fake?
TRUST THE SOURCE! First and Foremost, find a trusted source that lists freebies! Read the reviews of the source. Don't just trust the posted testimonials they highlight but go to their Facebook and read the page comments. Do the same with their Twitter accounts. See what their community is saying, winning and general interaction with the source.
Julies Freebies, The Freebie Guy and our support staff spend hours sorting through offers and researching companies to make sure that everything we post is 100% real, honest and rewarding.
