Can't you just make a folder for your dailies and bookmark the sweeps. Open them in tabs and enter when you are out and about. Enter new ones and go to the forums when you are at home.

I wonder what would happen if you bookmarked the forums? You could give that a try if you haven't already. Try a public thread and a member's only one to gain access and see if you can get in the way.

Bookmark the IP address 208.100.50.24 I don't know very much about computers but I would try everything till I found something that worked!

It isn't a gambling site. The people that identify it as such are wrong!

I, for one, have certainly not used the word "win" very frequently.

Knoebels provides free WIFI for visitors but I could not access OLS while there. Why, I do not know? The park has an arcade which offers various forms of 'gambling' and, again I could access online casino games while at the park, but no OLS.

I have trouble at public libraries a lot of the times which is why I made my cell phone its own hot spot. I hate to miss a chance to enter some great sweeps

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

That's a great idea but I'm still using a flip phone that is not quite so smart.

Will any "sweepstakes" site work?

I'm just wondering if it's not really a gambling situation but banning things that may be considered sketchy where it could be scamming someone.

There are places that claim to be a sweepstakes yet they want money to enter, etc.. and maybe just the term sweepstakes or contest is a keyword they don't want.

Update: OLS was available for my visit today but service was temperamental at various park venues.

Yes, there are definitely scammers out there. I have been getting phone calls recently about some million dollar sweeps where I failed to claim a prize which is now sitting in some warehouse until I do as instructed.... YEAH RIGHT!!!! It seems like any time I answer the landline these days it is a gamble.

Recently I was denied access to OLS because the "server is not secure"

From all the posts regarding subscription issues, it seems like PayPal is the real gamble.
