This week we had planned to tell about another “win a house” competition that had just launched. The prize was a £1.3million home in Blackheath and the entry cost was set at £5. The reason for the sale was that the owner, Renu Qadri, can no longer afford the mortgage and would rather raffle off […]
The Loquax Competitions Blog
Our blog is where we get to write about the world of competitions, tell you our views about comping, offer help to promoters and keep you up to date with what's happening at Loquax. We'll try and share one or two fun things with you as well. You're welcome to comment on any of the articles!

It seems an age ago since the Loquax Team embarked on revamping the way your forum posts appeared as competition listings. What started out as a “shouldn’t take too long job” has taken a little bit longer than anticipated. However we hope you think it’s been worthwhile and thank you for being patient. With the […]
Every now and then a new competition site or app pops up and we’re asked to take a look. That was the case with Use Curious or sent us a message via Twitter. Use Curious is an app that’s available to download for iPhone or Android (via Google Play). By answering simple yes or no […]

Most compers will be fully aware of The Free Postcode Lottery. At launch the site was offering daily visitors the chance to win £10 if they matched the winning postcode. Over time the site has mushroomed in to a major UK internet destination and now offers over £700 a day in giveaways. Which isn’t bad […]
Not content with giving away a pile of cash every day, the folks behind the incredibly successful Free Postcode Lottery are about to launch another new daily free draw site. It’s called WinADinner.com and it will give participants the chance to win a free lunch every day. The site will open for business on the […]
