It has been a while since we last blogged! It’s our fault, we know. There’s no excuse.
We connect daily through Facebook and Twitter, but we should do our very best to post here more, too. Generally, we try to keep this space reserved for more than just giveaways, updates & schedule information. This is a place for introducing exciting new features and game-changing ideas.
Well, folks. Today we have some very, very exciting news.
It is with great pleasure that we launch our newest offering: Partner Contests.
Partner Contests are a series of monthly contests that will run alongside our weekly Featured Contests. They will run 24/7 and re-launch on the 1st of every month.
We have teamed up with some amazing brands to bring you more contests & bigger prizes! Best of all? There will NEVER be a moment where there is no contest running.
Introducing our Partnered Contests for November 2012:
1) Alokozay Tea - Win a Chest of Tea!
2) Niagara Falls Hotels - Win a Couples Getaway!
3) Team LTD - Win a Movember Prize Package!
4) Proies - Win a $50 Pre-Paid Visa!
5) Muse Pond - Win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!
We are always looking to expand our platform and add new and exciting vendors. Do you own a business or run an event that you would like to promote? Any favourite products or services you would like to see offered? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your inquiries!
We hope you enjoy our Partnered Contests and we can’t wait to hear your feedback!
Good luck this week!

New Features: The WinButton & The Prize Pool
New Feature - My Wins
We would like to introduce a New Feature to make redeeming your vouchers even easier: My Wins.
The My Wins button is located in the top right-hand corner of every page, beside My Profile & Logout. Inside My Wins, you will find all of your Winning Vouchers and Special Offers neatly sorted by the date you entered the contest.
In order to redeem your voucher, simply click “Redeem” next to the voucher you would like to use and answer the skill-testing question. If you are correct, print off the voucher and present it to the Vendor at the time of purchase. It’s that easy!
Not sure if you have any Vouchers? Check My Wins and be sure to use them before they expire!
If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to fire us an email or shoot us a message on Facebook or Twitter.

New Feature - Email Opt-in
If you entered the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience contest this week, you might have noticed this.
This is a new feature we have rolled out called Email Opt-In and here is why it’s awesome
- You decide if the Vendor gets your email
- You get another entry if you allow the vendor to have your email
We get feedback from you our loyal users who talk about how they are skeptical that we are simply turning around and selling information to vendors.
That simply isn’t the case.
We provide some high level anonymous stats to our vendors after a contest, and starting this week, will provide them a list of emails of users who opted-in to their lists.
Just another way that WinJunkie is innovating for you, and for our vendors.
Let us know what you think!
Introducing Special Offers
So you might have seen this icon floating around some of our contests lately and you might be wondering what they are… well, they are Special Offers and they are amazing!
Think of them as a Thank You coupon from the vendor directly to you. They know that only some people are going to walk away with a big prize so to make sure that most people get something for playing, the Special Offer will give you a chance to check them out for less money.
Q: Okay… wait. All I have to do is press a button and Enter to Win and I might go home with a sweet Special Offer from an awesome vendor?
Yes! That’s right! Pretty amazing eh!
Q: Does everybody win a special offer?
It depends on the vendor, but most people will walk away with one.
Q: How do the winners get picked for these special offers?
The same way we pick the winners. It’s all random.
We essentially put everyone’s name in a big hat and the computer picks from there.
Q: Does having more entries into the contest increase my chance of winning a Special Offer?
Yes it does! We always reward sharing. Just like kindergarten. The more you share, the more you win.
Q: How will I know if I won a Special Offer?
You will get an email shortly after the contest is over. The email will contain instructions on redeeming it.
Q: Do I need to enter that pesky Skill Testing Question?
Yes you do! We love the law and stick to it. Canadian Contests require it!
We are still alive with our LottoMax Jackpot!
So I think we are destined to win this LottoMax Jackpot! We keep getting free tickets and this week, the jackpot including the Max Millions will be up to 100 Million!
Craziness but exciting nonetheless!
We will let you know how it goes! Stay tuned.
Happy Canada Day Everyone
Here is a shot curteosy of Kent Fenwick one of our founders.
We hope that you and yours have a fantastic Canada Day holiday weekend!
We won! But not the $50,000,000
Well I guess your fingers weren’t crossed hard enough… we didn’t win the $50,000,000 but we did win something!
We won $20 plus a free ticket.
We have invested this into next week’s draw. If you won last night, it will carry over into next week’s draw.
Cross those fingers tighter!
Flash Contest Friday - Lotto Max $50 Million Jackpot
We are so excited to announce a Flash Contest today.
We are giving away a chance to split a $50 Million LottoMax ticket with us if we win.
We know the odds are slim, but like the ancient proverb says.
You cannot win, if you do not enter
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
