Are you a games fanatic? I remember being addicted to Farmville during its peak in Facebook and just a few weeks before I got hooked in Candy Crush. Just a flashback, the reason why I discovered the world of blogging is because I first discovered the art of joining online contests. I guess I have luck in terms of online contests because I have won quite a few things out of joining online contests and giveaways but no major items yet unlike some who have won iPad, laptops, other gadgets etc.
I got the chance to try Crowdini which is an online question and answer contest. The basis of winning is not on how true or precise you answer but rather on the majority’s answer. Your answer should be part of the majority’s answer for the day to be eligible for the next round.
I was intrigued with how Crowdini works so I decided to join the contest for the day. Playing it was quite easy, just answer the question of the day, confirm it, that’s it! You also have the option to share it on Facebook or Twitter (depends on you, no additional points for this!). As you can see, the day I joined, a $25 Target gift card was at stake. The question for the day was “Have you visited Mt. Rushmore?” I just answered “NO”, which is an honest one because I really have no idea about the place and where it is located. For this game, there were other 105 people who played it.
The next day I got an email from them, thanking me for playing the day before and informing me that my answer the previous day was part of the majority’s answer and that I am still in the contest for the current day.
Then I went back to the site and saw that from 106 players from the previous day, it was down to 93. And I thought, the better chance of winning. when there aren’t many players.
But the next day I got an email informing me that my answer the previous day didn’t make it to the majority’s answer and that I was asked to start another game. I didn’t feel bad because relatively, the contest is easy to play nothing much needed in order to play but to just sign up. The prizes are pretty cool same as what other blogs are giving away, the only difference is that the games in Crowdini didn’t have the long list of Rafflecopter entries to increase your chance of winning.
Aside from everything else, I was also able to get some added information regarding the places, things and events they mention in their contest of the day, like for example, Mt. Rushmore (I needed Google for this one!) which I found out is a national memorial located in the majestic beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota. Indeed Crowdini is more than just an online contest but also a good source of information.
