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’s not often we get press releases regarding winners and it did make us think that wouldn’t it be great if more companies made the effort. Any thanks to the folks over at First Car we can tell you about their recent car competition winner. Find our more below and a big congrats to the […]


As well as keeping an eye on win a house raffles, we also like to keep tabs on what’s happening in the world of free lotteries. These kind of daily giveaways have increased in number since the arrival of The Free Postcode Lottery. Some sites have tried to replicate The FPL by basically doing exactly […]


Updates To Competition Tracker Reporting Pages

Posted on: August 31st, 2017

This week we’ve made some adjustments to our competition tracking reporting pages. Firstly, we still do have a competition tracker – in fact we have two – one is the old legacy version which relied on clicking the “thanks” button whilst the other is the “quacker tracker” which involves clicking on the ducks or crosses […]


Marie Wins An £800K Country House

Posted on: August 16th, 2017

Back in February we told you about a brand new win a house competition. The prize was a six-bedroomed Melling Manor near Kirkby Lonsdale, valued at over £800,000 and the competition was the idea of Dustan Low. He’d failed to attract a buyer and decided to resort to using the competition method to giveaway his […]


Win Your Dream Home In Scotland

Posted on: June 22nd, 2017

Although the ‘win a house’ competition craze hasn’t quite hit the dizzy heights of a few years ago, there are signs that other people are now viewing it as a viable option for offloading their property. Dustan Law kicked things off earlier this year when he decided to giveaway his country house in Lancashire. He’s […]


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 […]


We needed to pick some winners for a promotion we recently ran on our Clucky Bingo site and googled “random number generator”. We weren’t surprised to see that Random.org was top of the pile – at least in terms of websites that offer a randomising service – but we were surprised to see a Google […]


Can you believe that we’re already in April – just how fast is 2017 going? At least the sun is making an appearence to brighten the uncertain future we now all face because of Brexit. Who knows how that all the chances will effect our holidays abroad in the future? Still you could always enjoy […]


Last Friday (24th March) it was Comic Relief and to be honest the less said about the comedy the better. Aside from Carpool Karaoke, Ed Sheeran and Love Actually 2 there wasn’t much comedy to enjoy and it was most certainly a relief when it finished. On the plus side over £70million was raised for […]


I first started taking an interest in competitions in 1997. Back then the only books I remember being available on “how to win competitions” were all about tiebreakers. Fast forward to 2015 and a quick search on Amazon for books on “how to win competitions” reveals quite slim pickings. The guides that are available on […]
