    You can't win if you don't play. I guess if you have the means where you are losing money or major time by doing contests, then it isn't worth it.

    Honestly the contests are not a complete waste of time. I recently won a pair of earphones from LG a few weeks ago. Wishful thinking is sometimes nice

    Just a matter of statistics. Odds of winning a giveaway are often below 1/10000 or even 1/100000, especially with tech related stuff

    I have won a couple of internet contests. Although most of them out there seem fake, the ones from Android Central are not.

    Good luck everyone!

    Well, I won the last one (PS4 +PSVR) and actually I won some before even when the odds were like 1 of 80.000

    But sometimes it's just matter of participating, if you don't participate your odds are like 0 / ∞ and I'm not particularly good at math, but looks like less than 1 / 1500 or something like that.

    Good luck everybody, we have two thread for some other contest and giveaways you may try:

    But if you win something, share it! and if you know about a giveaway which isn't there, post it!

    Let me give you personal opinion regarding giveaways, based on my experience, after entering at least 1500 and winning 4 of them. Many of them are fake, we will never really know for sure, but some tips to identify which ones are fakes, imo:

    - If it doesn't have a video on the youtube channel and/or too little subscribers it's most likely fake/clickbait since they inform the sponsor and no way they are spending 700 dollars on a iPhone 7 from their own money just to give it away in exchange for some new subscribers.
    - MySocialRadio, AppsThatRock, FishBowlPrizes only do fake giveaways. They never announce the winner and/or do to many of them at the same time. If you can point me to a FishBowlPrizes winner announcement I will take it back.
    - Giveaways starting with sdqk.me adress are fake since they never ever announce the winner, Gleam is normaly better.


    I hate to be deceived and the feeling of injustice. So, when no winner is announced I always take the time to ask the giveaway organizer directly on youtube channel, twitter, facebook, etc. If they dont answer back I try to expose them and denounce them to everyone. I urge everyone of you to do the same

    Cheers

    At least the Gleam.io ones are convenient and you don't have to keep filing out forms. Makes it much more worth it time-wise.

    Many are also fake, especially when they don't even announce the winner directly on the gleam widget, which is disrespectful towards everyone who entered and why I truly believe we have to enter their social media channels and publicly expose them.

    You don't have to. You can do it only once. But you gain more entries if you do it daily.
