When we started in this business it was a very difficult and time consuming process to find software that worked right, had good graphics, and made our customers happy. After trying out the first couple of sweeptakes software companies we decided to continue our journey and start documenting our experiences. I hope this helps you.

While our search and review process is by no means exhaustive as it takes a lot of time and resources to test each software, we were able to test 4 (so far). The results will be listed in the order they were tested.

Sweepstopia Software

Sweepstopia is a US based Internet sweepstakes company. This was our second attempt at trying an Internet company after we swore we wouldn't go back after our first Internet software experience (see Promotek below). So, albeit reluctantly, we decided to try them.

Although they have a professional look and demeanor when we first contemplated using Sweepstopia they were lacking in the number and variety of games that we like to see.

Figure 8 Tech

Figure8 Technologies is a North Carolina Based company. Figure 8 has some good experience and has been around for at least 7 years making them one of the older sweepstakes companies. Their games are server based. This means you need to have a POS, a server in your location, and have your computers flashed with their software.

Figure 8 was the first company we started using about 2 years ago. At the time we tried them there were only a few visable competitors and we didn't have a lot of experience with trying different games or seeing different graphics. At the time we thought their graphics were pretty good. How that we've tried a few other companies we feel their graphics have fallen behind the "figure8" ball. Continue Here for Complete Review
