View Full Version : What time of day do you win instants?

January 23rd, 2008, 12:59pm
Been playing instants for a number of years and am just curious when others win on them? I don't ever seem to win during the day, but have won a few times on Fridays in the early evening. Do you think the chances of winning are more likely in the evenings?

Seems Like Never I Win Very Few

I do them at different times of the day and win at all different times.

late afternoon
late at night

Changing the time of the day I enter seem to help :grin3:

Last summer I was on a roll for about a month I hit every instant that was running during that time between midnight a 3am.
Since then I have had few wins so there are really no set times, it's luck and persistence!

I try to do them in the middle of the night most of the time but when ever I can usually

Won one 11:30am today. I try all different times but win very few overall.

Usually my wins come in the 6 A.M. hour.

January 23rd, 2008, 1:36pm
between two and four am for me...

Between midnight-3 a.m. for me.

I've only won two instants. One was around 2:30 p.m. and another was around 11:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time for both.)

January 23rd, 2008, 4:10pm
It's been all over the map for me. From early am to Sunday afternoon. You just never know.

I used to win a lot of little prizes in the middle of the night. Then I started watching my grandson during the day and couldn't stay up late any more. Now I enter about 6;30 AM and I don't win as much, but the quality of prizes is definately better. :)

I do mine at about 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. EST. I was on a roll winning many just before the new year, almost 2 a day. Now it's about 1x a week I win something. I don't enter them all either, just the ones I am really interested in.

January 23rd, 2008, 4:30pm
When ever I have the time....

That horse is freakin' me out!

I won $100 last night at about 2:45 a.m. I hardly ever win during the day.

I'm retired, so enter sweeps at different times each day. Sometimes late morning, mid-afternoon, early evening or late night. Have won one loaf of bread in the past two months, but hey, it's something. In my experience, time of day doesn't matter that much.

I have yet to win an instant win .. I haven't been keeping track of when I do them, they are pretty random times throughout the day.

January 23rd, 2008, 8:45pm
I do mine 3 to 5 am and do well.

My biggest instant ($400 ARV) came about 2:20pm EST on a Thursday afternoon. Other instants have usually been in the evenings between 8p and 10p and mornings around 10am including weekends.

January 23rd, 2008, 9:32pm
I used to win all the time between 1-2 am EST. Not anymore.

January 23rd, 2008, 9:40pm
them like I used to. If I find one listed in the new sweeps for the day I`ll hit it. But I don`t really spend the time on them that I used to:sleep2::sleep2:

January 23rd, 2008, 9:46pm
Only during waking hours -as early as 6:45am and as late at 11:30.

I once won a phone in instant will sponsored by Peppridge Farms. I called in via pay phone during my lunch break it was about noon time. I won a trip to New York City. This was the first of 6 different trips I won during a six year period. Now my husband asks where are we going this year?

Doesn't it depend where the instant is coming from? I am in New Jersey and when it's 2:00 in the morning here, it's only 11 PM in California! LOL
I have won at 7PM and Sunday noon! Go figure, just figure it's sooo random.:bike:

The only two instant wins I've ever won were between about 2am to 3am..

go figure...

I usually enter around 7:30 in the morning (after I take the kids to school), but I never win any of the instants then.

My biggest ever instant win was at 4 am, (won a laptop) but have won smaller things at all hours. Just this last month I won Microsoft Points at around 9 am, Movie Tickets from Campbells at 9:15 am, Shrek instant win at 10:56 am, Totinos pizza rolls coupon at 4:29 pm and a Polly Pocket toy at about 9:30 am. Mornings is about the only time I can do instant wins and sometimes late afternoon. And just now I got an email from the Bundle Up and Win instant win game saying I won two movie tickets to a movie of my choice through Fandango and get this!!! When I played this morning (and every morning that I've played) It said I hadn't won! So I don't know what's up with that but I'm not knocking it for sure!!! I never go to movies because of the price but now I can. So I think you can win at any time of day!
