  6. Says contest is now closed.

  7. Not working — their last 2 sweeps also did not work

    • Did you try a different browser? Their last two sweepstakes did work. The very last one had an issue for several days and didn’t work but then they fixed it. Things happen. Try it again with a different browser

      • The 7/1 quit working and ended early. The 6/3 and 4/29 both quit working the same way as this time. No browser works. I know because I played all of them and everyone here had the same issue. Look at the comments for those sweeps.

  8. You’ve got to start wondering when the same platform that was working fine suddenly stops working toward the end. One time I can see, but three times?

  9. Michele T says:

    Couldn’t get it to work again today. Tried IE, Firefox, and Chrome. Here’s the answer incase someone can get it to work.

    Same here, tried different browsers yesterday & today, won’t work for me

  11. I notified them yesterday & they replied they had fixed their technical difficulties. Tried and still doesn’t work today; notified them again. When this happens I always try different browsers.

  12. Michele T says:

    Still not working for me today in different browsers, but here’s the answer!

    The screenplay for the 2015 film adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd starring Carey Mulligan was penned by which author?
    Answer: David Nicholls

  13. Philip Lawrence says:

    This sweepstakes is not working and it is not the first time this has happened. The last few times they have run such a sweepstakes, I answer about 5 of the 10 trivia questions but then it shuts down and does nothing each day afterwards and I can not complete the 10 questions to be eligible for the prize. I tried to contact them with no results. Very discouraging! Do they even give away any prizes or are they scamming us.
