Competitions in Australia Review
There are plenty of misconceptions around the world when it comes to Australia. The biggest of these is that everything there is upside down.
One of the lesser-known things about Aussies is that they love competitions to win free stuff. And, let’s be honest, who can blame them?
In this CompetitionsinAustralia.com review, we will look at one of the many sites dedicated to these competitions. We will find out how it operates and what you can gain by logging on.
How Does CompetitionsinAustralia.com Work?
To put it simply, Competitions in Australia is a website that makes it easier for you to enter the free draws and sweeps happening across the country.
This is because the team behind the site spend each day searching the Internet for all these draws. They then take all of these and compile them into a single place so that you can find them easily.
The site doesn’t allow you to register a user account. Instead, anybody is free to use the site, and you won’t have to provide any of your personal details to do so.
To use the site, all you will need to do is browse the available comps until you find one that you want the prize from. Clicking on the post will direct you to the draw page.
On this page, you will find all the information about the draw. This includes the draw period, who is eligible to enter, what the prizes are, and when the winner will be announced. This page is also where you will find the entry link.
Clicking on this link will direct you away from CompetitionsinAustralia.com and take you to the official website of the organiser of the draw. Here, you will need to follow the on-screen prompts to enter.
Is CompetitionsinAustralia.com Legit or a Scam?
There is always some concern when using free sweepstake websites. After all, we expect there to be a catch to receiving the chance to win free stuff.
Thankfully, this is not the case with Competitions in Australia. The site is entirely legitimate and acts only as a noticeboard for all the comps listed. The site itself has nothing to do with any of the actual draws.
The fact that you are not required to register a user account is another comforting thing about the site. Because you don’t have to divulge any of your personal information, there is little chance of suffering any loss by using the site.
The site looks decent enough. The designer made use of plenty of white space, and everything is easily visible. There are also no overbearing colours or graphics to distract your attention.
You can navigate around the website using the top menu bar. This is pretty standard for most sites and allows you to get to all the places you could need to be.
The site displays well on mobile device browsers, and you will easily be able to check out the latest draws while on the move.
The only thing that ruins the mobile experience is the same thing that makes the desktop version less appealing too.
We are, of course, talking about ads.
There are banner ads located at the top and on the right side of the site. There are also pop-up ads that appear when you try and navigate to another page.
The banner ads we could easily ignore. However, the pop-up ads are very annoying, and you may soon become frustrated with dismissing them.
You won’t find any lotteries on CompetitionsinAustralia.com. Instead, the site only posts draws that are free to enter. However, these comps are sorted into different prize categories.
These different prize categories make it easier to find a draw that you are really interested in entering. The available categories are:
There are far fewer categories here than is usually available on these kinds of websites. However, they make finding exactly what you are looking for much easier by being so concise.
The only extra feature visible on the site is the ability to leave comments on certain draws. To do this, you will need to submit your name, email address, and comment using the provided form at the bottom of each listing.
We are not really sure why you would want to comment on any of the sweep posts. However, if you want to, there is the option available.
The site doesn’t have any payment or withdrawal options available. This is not surprising considering all competitions mentioned are free to enter.
How to Claim Your Winnings
As is the norm for comps, the claims process for getting your winnings is listed in the official rules for the competition.
Sadly, while all the other information pertaining to draws is listed with the draw posting, the procedure for claiming your winnings is not.
So, you will need to visit the official entry page of the draw and look for the terms and conditions to see how to claim your prize if you are a winner. As always, it is best to know this information before you enter.
The site fails to provide any type of FAQ section. Instead, the only way to contact those behind the website is by completing the provided online form.
While it is stated that you will receive a response as soon as possible, there is no mention of how soon this might be.
Rules and Regulations
Anybody who wants to use the services provided by Competitions in Australia is free to do so. This is because there are no regulations limiting the use of the site to specific audiences.
It is worthwhile to note that the site is geared towards those living in Australia. So, if you are not living in Australia, it is probably pointless to even look at the site. This is because a condition for most of the draws will be that you must be a resident in the country.
CompetitionsinAustralia.com Review Conclusion
CompetitionsinAustralia.com is a solid website that does what it sets out to do. This is to make it easier for you to find and enter free draws, competitions, and sweepstakes.
However, we won’t lie when we say that we did expect more from the site when we first logged on. It seems that the website does everything quite well. But we were expecting slightly more features.
Something as basic as view tracking that shows you which comps you have already looked at would make this site much better. We hope that features like this will be added in the future.
Until then, this is still a decent place to look if you are interested in finding free draws. As long as you are in Australia, we reckon you should log on and take a look.
