Talking what time of the day is better to enter instant sweeps??
Hi, I was just curious if there is any certain time of the day better to enter the instant sweeps?
I have read some of the other comments, but I am still not sure. I was just curious if I should set my alarm to get up in the early morning to enter or just enter when I have time?
Any comments would be helpful!
Thanks!!!

Personally, I have won the most in the 2-3 am CST time frame, but I have won at all different times. I don't think I would set my alarm for it, because it's never a sure thing. I just enter when I can!

I have heard quite a few say that entering in the middle of the night brings lots of wins on instants. However, I don't do that and while there are many instants I have not won, I still win my share. And as for all the others besides instants, heck it is just the luck of the click. LOL

Just enter, sooner or later you will win if you are persistent. In sweeping, you have to love the "game" and get some enjoyment out of the process.

I think different sweeps have different 'sweet spots'. Sometimes I think a sweep will give all the prizes out on just one day too.

I've won a lot on the instant win games including 3 trips, $1000 spa gift card, $500 Best Buy gift card, designer purse $600 and I never play in the middle of the night. I have won as early as 6:45 am up till 11pm.

instant win games are RANDOM, hence no one knows when the winning times will be.

I've decided that it's just a matter of luck and not time.


The one exception that I wonder about, are the sweeps that are giving out so many prizes every day. Say 50 per day.

I wonder if you are hurting yourself by entering really late in the evening. Because they aren't going to have any idea how many people are going to enter on any given day or how many will enter after say 9pm. So in order to make sure that they get all of the prizes given out, for any particular day, do they overload the prizes in the morning,afternoon and early evening to make sure they have 50 winners before the end of the day?

One time is as good as another although there are a few less players early in the day. Winners are evenly spaced and pop up at random through out the day. When the prize window opens is anyone s guess.

East coast player = 3 to 6 am
With instants, if prizes are seeded at random

times 24/7 (read rules), I find the best time for

me as an East coast player, to be 3 to 6 am.

There is much less competition on-line.

It was true for me too, that I would win more instants at these hours. I'm rarely up at this timeframe anymore.

It doesn't matter for the non instant win sweeps, just enter when you can.

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