Hi Kuchtak, we can see how it may appear this way, but in reality people who win polo shirts are not as likely as people who win golf clubs to claim their prize. For this reason, the free tournaments take longer to confirm because there is a number of days we must wait for a reply after a winner is contacted to give them time to claim their prize. Once the time period runs out, we need to go through the whole process again of selecting a different winner and contacting them, etc. Similarly, sweepstakes challenges take longer because there is a winner selection process that a third party does for us, and thus it takes longer to confirm a winner.
The paid tournaments seem to be confirmed quicker because people tend to respond quickly to their high-value prize notifications.
Hope this helps, and thanks for understanding.
