I use roboform and it works great! On my laptop I have google tool bar so I understand what you mean about it only working half of the time...Do a search and you should be able to find a download of roboform.

I'm thinking this is a scam but at this point they are not asking for any personal information so I thought I would see if anyone else here had gotten one of these or even remembers a contest like this one.

I have gotten about a hundred of these or similar, all based out of the UK. I remember a bunch of people signed up for a freebie several months ago and someone noted they thought it was fraudalent and it was based out of the UK, strange now all these are showing up in peoples email. I have to delete about 6 or so a day out of my spam folder.

I hate those IWG's. I've actually been staying away from them just b/c they are such a pain to play. I did win the $20 Gap GC from them from that first IWG they had out though...

same here.. when I see caffeine, I usually won't play. It takes way too long for me to load, especially just to lose!

It's used as a precaution to keep people from registering and starting to spam the boards with stuff. I think you just have to be here a little while or make a few posts in other threads and you can do it.

I don't like them, either. First of all, my auto-complete never works on their sites. Plus, I get sick of seeing the exact same 3-row-fruit-slot machine on every one of them. Booooring. Never won on any of them, either.

Did you know that you don't need to actually play the caffeine IWG, all you have to do is hit the continue button and it will tell you if you are a winner or not.

Hello!

I am new here. How do I post a sweepstake I found. I am not allowed to post anything.

When I try to post, I am told > "You do not have enough posts on the forum yet to include URLs or images in your posts. This is to prevent spam. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please PM an admin if you need a link included in your post."

You can still paste the URL it just won't show up as a link. Then people wanting to visit the site will have to copy/paste the URL into their browser. Usually a member here will help out by replying with the clickable link. Just make a few more posts, or create a thread, you'll have the ability to post links in no time!

That's what I do too. I click the login button, type my e-mail address, hit the tab button, and then enter my password. Click submit, continue, get sad, close window. :D

My question is about instant win games and the "click here if you do not have flash" button. (Sometimes it says "click here if you can't see the game")
I usually click these so I won't have to sit through the game, and it takes me strait to the results page. I was just wondering if it affects your chances of winning at all. It don't seem like it does, but I've never won a game after clicking that button :g_shrug:

This is how I won my $3,000 from Harrah's, so I don't think it makes effects your chance of winning.
