If you’ve ever played at a sweeps casino, you’ll probably know that there are a number of different ways to get your FREE Sweeps Coins. 

You’ll normally get some to start off with when you sign up, and if you decide to buy some extra Gold Coins you often get FREE Sweeps Coins. Plus, social casinos like Chumba Casino and Pulsz are constantly running promotions and giveaways for SCs on social media. 

But, strange as it sounds, you can also receive Sweeps Coins via mail thanks to something called sweepstakes envelopes. We’re explaining exactly how it works here.

What Are Sweepstakes Envelopes?

Sweepstakes envelopes, also called sweeps requests, let you claim Sweeps Coins to use at your favorite sweeps casinos totally free, by sending a request to the casino via mail. 

At its core, a sweepstakes envelope is simply a written request for Sweeps Coins. The catch is that you need to follow the instructions provided by the casino very carefully, which includes the wording of the letter you send. 

The exact instructions vary depending on the site. Generally, everything must be handwritten, the envelope and paper must be a certain size, and the message has to be totally accurate. 

For example, the a (fictional) sweepstakes envelope message request could be the following:

“I wish to receive Sweeps Coins to participate in the sweepstakes promotions offered by Cherry Red Casino. By submitting this request, I hereby declare that I have read and fully accept the Terms and Conditions and Sweeps Rules associated with Cherry Red Casino.”

Even just one word different from the above could lead to your request not being processed. There are also certain terms and conditions, like the limit on the number of envelopes you can send in a given timeframe.

You should find all the instructions and details in the section of the site explaining how Sweeps Coins work.

Like we said, the instructions are very specific and require close attention – but it is absolutely a legitimate way to get free Sweeps Coins.

Why Do Sweeps Sites Offer Free Sweeps Coins via Mail?

Sweeps sites offer free Sweeps Coins in this way for one simple reason: it’s a legal requirement for running sweepstakes.

Sweeps sites are not the same as real money casinos. The games are not legally considered gambling, rather they are a form of sweepstakes contest. 

It’s the same reason you can never purchase Sweeps Coins, only ever receive them for free or through some kind of promotional giveaway. 

The sweepstakes model is why sweeps sites are available in almost every state in the US, while online casinos are only legal in six. This article explains more about sweepstakes laws in general.

How Long Until I Get My Sweeps Coins?

It varies, but it can take a while. Obviously you need to wait for the mail to actually be delivered, and then for your request to be processed. All in all, from when you send the envelope to when the SCs are available in your account, you could be talking six weeks.

Is There a Limit to How Many Sweeps Coins You Can Receive via Mail?

The answer to this varies depending on the site. 

As we’ve stressed throughout this page, the key to obtaining Sweeps Coins in this way is all about following the instructions and terms and conditions very carefully. 

There have also been instances of players having their account suspended for attempting to game the system. As a rule of thumb, if you think you’ve found a loophole and you’re sending hundreds of handwritten envelopes per week – chances are you’re breaking some kind of rule and could risk suspension. 

But as long as you read the rules carefully and follow the instructions to a T, sweepstakes envelopes are a great way to get free Sweeps Coins.
