      I voted other and would like to see a pocket book of field mushrooms added to the list.

      Anyone actually entered? Seen this is worldwide and not the usual UK only bollocks, so I might do 20 tickets for €9.

      The question is, is it legit? I've been on the site and they've given away a 100k+ car (Bentley Continental) + 20k cash. To do that and make a profit you need a whole lot of entrants.

      Best of the Best PLC is a Dream Car and Lifestyle Competition company that has been operating in major UK airports since 1999. The company gives a Dream Car away every week, and to date has handed the keys over to more than £22m worth of prizes. Wikipedia

      They also turn up at our local shopping centre from time to time and stick some fancy car outside House of Fraser and continually tell people not to touch it :)

      'Beer' fridge is actually full of Stella, Smirnoff Ice and Blue WKD - classy..... :(

      Then you've got what's basically an LCD TV with fancy letters added to it.... :(

      And then you've got a 'pretend' surround sound system....... :(

      If its a 'paid entry' national/international raffle, at least make the prizes good, no?

      Is this actually legal?

      If I read the guidance on the gambling commission website it would suggest not because it states that a prize competition must prevent a number of people from entering or winning by having an element of skill. If it doesn’t then it falls into the category of a lottery which must be for good causes.

      Now I have seen these guys selling tickets for cars at airports so I would assume that they know what they are doing, but interestingly that is the only place I have seen them and they have always been airside beyond passport control.

      It could be that they are a foreign company and therefore, not bound by UK rules.

      They are a big company so I suspect that it is all above board even if it is not that clear.

      Cheers,

      Nigel

      Okay, I stand corrected. Apparently there is a skill element - a spot the ball competition. The mistake I made is the link that I followed from above

      Takes you straight to adding tickets to the basket for 40p a go - so it looked like a lottery to me.

      :rtfm:

      for each Ticket that you have purchased, you will need to complete a Spot the Ball challenge
      onscreen, which shall operate as follows:
      (i) you will be shown a sporting photograph which will not contain a ball;
      (ii) using all the information shown in the sporting photograph displayed on the computer
      screen use your skill and judgement to correctly identify the grid square within which you
      consider the Judge will decide, is the most likely position for the centre of the ball if one
      had been present in the image;
      (iii) click on the screen to mark this spot (you can see your spot's coordinates on the screen).
      The computer will register this spot as your entry into the Competition
      ('Spot the Ball Challenge');
      (c) you may repeat the process for the Spot the Ball Challenge for as many entries as you wish to
      make, up to the specified limit. You will require one Ticket for each entry.

      My post was tongue in cheek - I think we've been short changed with the prizes considering you see these guys in airports offering Aston Martin's etc...and the AV enthusiasts get entry level/mid range prizes....<weeps>

      Looking at their accounts, they're a company with a £10m+ annual turnover, and return around £2m profit a year....and they've got plenty of cash in the bank (about £2m in the last financial year). They seem pretty low risk.

      I kind of agree with you but I also realise that this is a little bit snobbish.

      From an AV perspective that LCD TV wouldn't be on my list to buy but is still better than what a large percentage of the population is watching. This also applies to the pretend sound system.

      We are not the normal buying public. I have a very respectable HDR TV and a nice Atmos sound package. But for some reason I still get the urge to upgrade for Dolby Vision, then maybe 4 Atmos speakers. If I actually did this I wound end up replacing my TV, my receiver, my 4k player and buying more speakers!

      This is "not" normal.

      The first word of your first paragraph ‘If’ implies you haven’t read the gambling commission website.

      Then you purport to having clearly read the website (slow day?) and missed the ‘skill’ element which clearly makes this legal.

      Do you honestly think that the Commercial team in Stuart’s business would actively engage and promote an illegal competition via a paid promotion on this site without any (or at the very least) a little due diligence?

      I’d expected much better from you Nigel

      Cheers

      Agree, this is poor from Nigel.

      I know you had issues with the GDPR situation Nigel and you posted many times about it, but your post above is just out of order.
