What are sweepstakes and who are they for?
Online sweepstakes are gambling competitions dedicated to Chipy.com’s registered users only, in which they can buy tickets with the purpose of winning a prize. A sweepstake is available for a limited period of time - once the sweepstake ends, the winning tickets are randomly drawn from the pool of all purchased tickets.
Keep in mind that a user can have more than one winning ticket - therefore, the more tickets you buy, the more chances you have to win.
What’s more, each sweepstake has additional eligibility requirements related to the user level. So, based on your current level, you can see if you are eligible to enter a certain sweepstake or not.

The Advantages of Enrolling in a Sweepstake
If you decide to enroll in a sweepstake at Chipy.com, you must know that this comes with a lot of benefits:
- You get the chance to add real money and coins to your bankroll
- Enjoy the thrill of competition without spending anything
- You engage and compete with a community of over 120k members
Free entry vs Paid Sweepstakes
All of our sweepstakes are free - you don’t have to pay any real money to enroll! However, you should keep in mind that you may have to spend some Chipy coins for certain sweepstakes. Taking this into consideration, we divide sweepstakes into two main categories:
- Free entry sweepstakes. You don’t need to use Chipy coins to buy tickets for sweepstakes marked as “Free”. In these cases, you can enter the race for prizes without worrying about how much money you have in your Chipy account.
- Paid sweepstakes. In order to enter, you’ll have to purchase a sweepstake ticket. Keep in mind that those sweepstakes give you the chance to win bigger prizes. The ticket price is expressed in Chipy coins, our site’s own currency.
Even for the paid sweepstake, you don’t have to pay with real money. All you need to do is increase the number of your coins by being an active member of our community and engaging in activities on our website. To learn more about coins and how they work, take a look at our “What Are Coins?” guide.
Secondly, you should keep in mind that the more tickets you buy, the higher your chances to win. A user can have multiple winning tickets for a sweepstake.
The prizes are very generous - you can win 2 types of sweepstake prizes - Chipy coins prizes and real money prizes.
