Heads up, compers! In order to investigate a technical issue, we've had to move some of the older threads from Game Over into a new category called 'Game Over Archives'. It'll be comps from before 2017, so shouldn't have too much impact on your day-to-day Forum experience. Thanks for your patience!

been comping for 10+ years, used to win at least 4-5 prizes a month. This has gradually declined over the last few years - it got to me winning about 4-5 a year. However, this year just gone I have won...0 prizes in total! Has anyone else had a bad year or have I just been having a very long dry patch, lol? Happy new year and happy comping for 2022 everyone!

There has been a decline in the last few years though I think, perhaps it's partly me being pickier with what I enter.
Back in the heady days of comps such as ITV multiple online, The Times Rich List and Times Hourly we'd have 2/3 wins a week. Sometimes just toys or books, but a thrill none-the-less.
2/3 a month would be great now!
I only enter a few a day, but still disappointing.
Hoping for a good win in 2022 to make up for it though..
My worse year was actually 2020, worse than my first year of comping, I didn't even reach £250 worth.
I've been fairly lucky, I've won at least one prize every month from April 2016-Dec 2021 apart from Sept 19 and Aug 20.
I do enter for quite a few different things, as I have so many children I can enter for - from babies to late teens, a variety of animals and other people I can provide for too, so I do have a fair amount of small wins, most of mine probably usually up to £25 each, but I do have the occasional bigger win, which for 2021 was £327.47.
I ended 2021 with 56 prizes for the year with a total of: £1313.13 worth of prizes and vouchers and an additional £42.96 cash.
wow that's a brilliant amount of wins I tend to go for smaller prizes - i just like entering comps that offer books, candles, toys, chocolates etc as prizes - i'm not interested in the holidays, tickets, etc comps. I enter rafflecopter/gleam, Twitter and fb ones but never Instagram - i don't have an account, so if wins are easier to come by on these comps that could be where I'm missing out? Anyway, got my fingers crossed for a better year this year.
