The Great Contest is a free iOS app that lets you enter contests to win amazing prizes. If you’ve ever wanted to try your luck at playing games for cool things, this is definitely an app to try!
Created by David Kanzen, The Great Contest certainly isn’t the first app of its kind. It is, however, a very polished app that is very easy to navigate and figure out. The overall goal of The Great Contest is to allow players to enter various contests for prizes by purchasing entries with coins. Coins can be earned by completing activities or via in-app purchase.
Once you enter a contest you’re required to play a minigame in order to compete against other contestants. The higher your score is, the more tickets you’ll earn for the contest drawing. This means that doing very will will drastically increase your chances of winning a prize because you earn more entries.
Games in The Great Contest vary greatly, but the developer uses games that are already available on the App Store so you can practice before you throw your hat in the ring. Personally I think this is awesome because it means you won’t waste your limited entries trying to figure out how to play the required minigame.

Regarding sponsored activities, this is the primary way to earn entry coins in The Great Contest. This is also how the developer earns revenue in order to fund prizes, and all sponsored activities are provided by known and trusted sources like Tapjoy. Earning coins with these services is a breeze, so you’ll be entering contests in no time.
The Great Contest is an awesome contest app that’s sure to offer plenty of great opportunities for anyone who is willing to work hard in order to compete for the best game score. I really like the fact that everything is transparent and broken down for users to understand. Being able to download the original games in order to practice is also a huge benefit and is something I’ve never seen in other contest apps.
If you’d rather skip the sponsored activities and purchase coins directly, The Great Contest allows you to do so very easily. There’s a very wide range of coin packs so you’ll be able to spend as little or as much as you want.
Overall, The Great Contest is an awesome contest app for iPhone and iPad that’s both legitimate and fun to use. Using high game scores for entries really levels the playing field because you can’t just purchase entries outright; you have to work hard for your high score.
The Great Contest requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
