How long does each draw last?

Our competitions last for a set period. We never extend a competition under any circumstances. Details for each draw are featured on the Live Competition page on our website.

What happens if not all the tickets are sold?

The closing date of each competition is stated on each prize and will take place regardless of the number of tickets sold for that competition. Somebody will always win each prize on the stated draw date.

When and how is the winner drawn?

The prize draw will take place on the date stated in each competition details.

Each draw is done using either Googles random number generator, the automatic number selector or our ball machine.

All instant win draws will done done using the automatic number selector once the draw has reached the end date or all the tickets have sold. Whichever happens first.

The draw itself will be available to view on Facebook via a live stream.  Winners will then be contacted and a record of the winner of each prize placed on the website.

The competition is open to all residents in the UK and Republic of Ireland, aged 18 years or over, except members of the immediate families or households of the promoter.

How will I find out if I’m a winner?

You will be notified via email or phone number no less than 24 hours after the draw. It is then we will arrange delivery/ collection of the prize for you.

Tickets

How many tickets are there for each draw?

The maximum number of tickets for each competition are displayed in the draw details. This maximum number is set and will not change.

How can I tell how many tickets are already sold?

Both the maximum number of tickets for sale, and the total of tickets sold so far, are displayed in the draw details.

How do I receive my ticket number?

Once the payment process has been completed you will receive an email containing your ticket details.

What are my chances of winning?

Each competition has a set number of available tickets for purchase.  Your chances of winning can be calculated from the number of tickets you have purchased from the overall number of tickets sold for each competition.

For example, if you buy 1 ticket and the draw has a maximum of 300 tickets available then your chances are 1 in 300. However, if you buy 10 tickets then your chances are 1 in 30.  How great are those odds?

The maximum number of tickets available for each competition is set and will not change.
