Despite just one property being won in the recent spate of win a home competitions, these kind of contests continue to make the news. There are new competitions, frustrations with ones that have closed, winners and even a run in with Advertising Standards. In this blog post we summarise just what’s happening in the world […]
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!
The Free Postcode Lottery is one of the internet’s success stories of the last few years. Set up from scratch seven years ago, by founder Chris Holbrook, the site dishes out daily cash prizes of £800+. Over the years the site has paid out in excess of £500,000 and created hundreds of winners. However, things […]

It’s been over a year since the current trend of running win a house competitions started. This means that we’re now entering a period where a number of raffles that kicked off last year are closing or are due to close. Disappointingly there aren’t any house prize winners to report as to date only Melling […]
Walkers Crisps used to get a regular mention on the Loquax Blog due to their big prize promotions. For example there was the Bring It Back Campaign with £100,000 on offer and who can forget the Mystery Flavours competition which saw £50,000 cash prizes being dished out. There are more cash prizes on offer in […]
Long before the days of Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter and Tinder there came Loquax. Twenty very long years ago, myself and Kirsty, sat down and cobbled together our first version of the website. As today is our anniversary we’ve been looking back at old versions of the site courtesy of Wayback.org. Not only do they […]
It’s now five years – yes five years – since Loquax evolved into a competition listing service where the comps are predominantly posted by the community. Back in 2013 the site was given little or no chance of survival. A “dinosaur” of a site ready for extinction as one person put it. However, thanks to […]
Now that Christmas is over that means it’s all systems go for Easter! Chocolate Eggs are already in stores and Cadbury have announced that Creme Egg Hunting Season is back. Now usually that wouldn’t be such a big deal as Creme Eggs seem to be in store for 12 months of the year these days […]
Facebook have announced that they’re making changes to their algorithm in order to fight what they regard as “engagement bait”. The examples that they give on their blog include vote baiting using the like, love, hate emojis; react baiting where you like or love a post depending on the question and share baiting. The example […]
2017 will go down as the year that win a house competitions made their comeback. It all kicked off with Melling Manor which resulted in Marie Seager from Warrington taking ownership of the property worth £800,000 as a result of a £2 ticket. Since then countless other properties have been added to our win a […]
