Instant win sweepstakes are easy to enter and a blast to win. Instead of waiting for a win notification to arrive by mail, email, or telephone you find out whether you've won or not as soon as your entry has gone through. Many instant sweepstakes also offer games to play to increase the fun.

What Are Instant-Win Sweepstakes?

When you enter most sweepstakes, you have to wait until the giveaway ends and a winner is drawn before you know whether or not you will receive a prize.
With instant win sweepstakes, however, you know as soon as your entry goes through. The winning message will pop right up on your computer screen if you are an instant winner. The immediate gratification makes free instant win games a lot of fun to enter, increasing the excitement of winning and helping you to avoid sweepstakes burnout.

How Are Instant Winners Chosen?

The most common way that instant winners are selected works like this: before the giveaway begins, sponsors pick a random winning time for each prize. The first person to enter the instant sweepstakes after that winning time has passed will receive the prize.For this reason, instant win sweeps are one of the few types of sweepstakes where entry times matter.

What Happens If You Can't Win the Games?

Many instant sweepstakes challenge you to play a game, flip a coin, or pick a chest that actually contains treasure. However, your choice rarely has an actual effect on whether you've won or not.
If the winners are chosen by randomly determined times as described above, you will win no matter which chest you choose or when you stop the prize wheel's spin. The free instant games are intended to be fun and add excitement to the sweep.

If you aren't having fun playing the games, look for a link or a button to skip the game.

Many instant sweepstakes offer them, and skipping the game won't influence your chances of winning.
