How to Quickly Verify If You Won an Online Contest

You may have received a message, saying that you won the lottery or a cash prize and a link on how to claim it. The question is, how can you quickly verify if it’s the real thing?

Does Such an Online Contest Exist?

The First Question you should ask is, ‘does the Contest Exist?’

You can check your local news channels or on the world wide web to see if there really is a promotion. Then, you can cross reference how the winners are contacted, e.g., by phone number, email or social media.

As a general rule, if something seems too good to be true, it’s probably fake. Claims that say you won a million dollars even if you did not join a lottery or contest is most likely a scam, especially when they ask you to wire a ‘small fee’ or ask for your personal information.

Join Only on Official Lottery Channels

Lotteries are a good way to pass the time and possibly win huge amounts of cash. You get the thrill of excitement as the numbers are being called. In KBC, or Kaun Banega Crorepati, you participate in a series of events that can net you cool cash in the end.

Entering a lottery should be done only on official channels. In the KBC lottery, you join only on and check lottery results in the same online portal. Other sites will try to trick you into believing that they’re legit, but it’s recommended that you stick only on the original website.

The good news is that the runners of the lottery show has an updated lottery information center where you can see the current KBC lottery winner 2022 prominently displayed. The site will also have helplines and head office numbers with authorized staff waiting to answer your questions.
