In spite of what we have been reading and all the wonderful things and experiences that we have been hearing, the easy relaxing lifestyle and the cool prizes like cars, vacations and cash yes, they are real. And there may be rare occasions of beginners luck where first time compers get to take the winning prize home. But! Usually winning any online competition and sweepstake are not as easy as some people may think. And if ever they win, we never hear how far in between it is. There is only one winner that gets the prize and the rest, the hundreds even the thousands of participant, only gets experience, to take home.
Sometimes, it really takes a long time before someone starts to win prizes. It takes a whole lot of patience before he or she figures out the right attitude and proper strategy needed to win and to keep on going as a novice comper. Then hopefully after he/she gets the hang of it, and gets more experience and learn how to layout plans to win, the much awaited and desired prizes would start coming in.
