A dedicated AdSense page before entry is accepted?

Hey everyone

I run a website that uses AdSense ads to help generate funds to run a free airtime draw every day - People come along and submit their numbers, the winners are selected daily and they receive their airtime pins by SMS.

Airtime is fairly expensive though and I'm having a challenging time scaling the site - It is easy to break even, because I just don't give away more airtime than I earn in a day, but I am having a hard time achieving decent growth - I would like to be able to give more airtime away.

I had an idea, though I will admit it is fairly spammy which is why I wanted to float it past a few people before I tried it. I think it could help to increase my AdSense earnings though, so here goes...

At the moment the visitor flow looks like this

home >> select provider >> enter number >> entry accepted

I was thinking, what if I added an extra page to the process that displays a really large AdSense Ad unit with something to the effect of continue to enter the draw. ie.

home >> select provider >> enter number >> AdSense page displayed >> entry accepted

Again I will admit that something inside me feels a little uneasy about it, but I am willing to try it for experiments sake. I have not been able to find anything in the Google AdSense policies that suggests I would be violating them by doing this, but I did just want to check, I would hate to be banned from AdSense. What do you think?

Content?

If you weren't banned, I bet you'd be smart priced. As an advertiser, if I found one of my ads on a page like that, I'd block you from showing them.

Pages with adsense on them are supposed to have plenty of content. Doesn't sound like you'd have much on that page.

You can't use AdSense on pages such as "Thank you" and "Continue" according to ToS.

forbes.com uses it on welcome screen. 5 words content and ad in the middle of the screen

Yep and interstitials suck. I don't think that's an AdSense ad, but if it is, they're probably a premium partner and can do things the rest of us can't.

(I never decide how to place ads based on what other people are getting away with. Ever. The minute I even ask myself that question, I lose.)

This says it all, don't you think?

Just add some texts to it (ie: instructions how the contest work; rules that you must be 18 to enter; or whatever) then place the Enter button below the texts. I don't see anything wrong with it.
