FAQ for Contests
Why does the contest say I already entered today when I haven’t?
Browsers download and store web pages on your computer’s hard drive to help speed up download time on subsequent visits. This storage of information can affect entering some CTV contests. It is usually an issue with contests that require a clue word to be entered.
If you try to enter a clue word and the site says you have already entered the contest that day but you haven’t, your first step should be to clear your Browser History and Cache. Clearing these, will remove the stored information and should allow you to enter the day’s contest.
