    Mag Daily and Clicks to wins FAQs

    Mag Daily and Clicks to wins FAQs 28th Dec 18 at 8:30 AM
    Now that the advents are over, I've been toying with the idea of adding some answers to frequently asked questions to the threads on the regulars board for both the mag daily comps and the click to win comps.

    For example 'Do I get more entries if I share?'

    I could do with help on compiling a list of FAQs (and easily understandable answers).

    If anyone can come up with some and add them here, that would be appreciated. Or even just a link to any threads on here where questions have been asked and answered.

    Thank you.


    The FAQ's can now all be found on the following posts.

    I don't know if this is helpful but I can think of some questions, I've thought of doing C2W and MD in the new year so this would be lovely!


    C2W Qs
    How do I know if the prize is being offered by more than one page/site. How do I find the prizes that are only offered on one?

    Do I need to check the site to see if I have won or will they email me?

    How do i get the videos to play automatically, without having to be in that tab?

    In regards to C2W's, I emailed them last year about the nigh-on impossible odds of the same person winning 15 out of 25 competitions, might come in handy for some faqs...

    "
    We have no manual input in the selection of winners. It is done by a computer system based in the US.

    Many of our competitions are shared across multiple sites, and entrants can enter once per day on each site. If you click on a competition you would like to enter, scroll down to OFFICIAL RULES there is a full list as to which sites the competition is placed on.

    The more entries that an entrant makes, the more likely those entrants are to win.

    These entrants enter that many competitions that many times.

    As per our terms and conditions a winner cannot win more than one prize that is worth more than £500 in six months, there is no cap on the amount of prizes that they can win other than this."

    Thanks Nelie, I will include these.


    C2W Qs

    If you see a prize you particularly like and want to enter on all the sites it is available on, click on 'official rules' and you can see direct links to all the entry routes.

    How do I find the prizes that are only offered on one?

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    I use chrome, but it happens in Safari too.

    I tend to pull it down so it makes it a new window and then it works, but it is annoying!

    I use the Brave browser on mobile and it manages to skip the videos, I don't really do C2W's on a computer.

    In firefox you can stop the videos automatically starting, this causes the page to skip the video. in the link below there are instructions on how to do this.

    Hi all -

    I just wondered if sharing on facebook on a mag daily improves your chances of winning - do you share every mag daily comp you enter?
    Thanks (Sorry if this has been asked before!)
    26 wins in Feb 2019 Thanks everyone x

    Just to add to my above post .....although I have won a few times from the mag dailies I never seem to get one of the ''higher value'' wins.
    Maybe this is because I don't share, who knows, but I'm happy with my wins and to be honest I feel there are enough competitions out there on Social Media asking for shares and tags without the mag dailies wanting us to spam even more.
    Just my own opinions of course.

    There could be two reasons why you have more luck with the lower value prizes. Firstly, some people don't bother entering for low value prizes. Secondly, there are often multiple prizes to give away, For example "15 lucky readers will receive..."

    I don't enter every day and I only enter for the things I actually want.
    The mag dailies are so time consuming without adding sharing onto the time.
