What Are Subscription Prize Draw Sites?

On this blog we’ve made a number of posts about pay to enter sites or raffle sites. In this growing comping trend entrants purchase entries or tickets for a prize draw which may close early if ticket targets have been reached. Depending which sites you choose to visit and the prizes you’re entering for the price of entry can range from free up to £100 (or sometimes more). However these aren’t the only pay to enter prize draw sites that are on the market. Another potentially growing theme is the rise of the subscription prize draw site. This is where you pay a fixed amount each month to be included in one or more prize draws. Probably the most well known of these particular sites is Omaze. For £10 a month you receive entries into every Early Bird and Grand Prize Draw until cancellation. You can opt to pay more per month in order to receive more entries. Other win a house platforms, such as Raffle House, also offer a subscription service. But there are other platforms including Good Life Plus and WinMore. But what do these sites do, what do they offer and are they worth spending money on?

Good Life Plus

Good Life Plus describe themselves as “an entertainment-focused service that provides members access to hundreds of rewards, including discounts & deals, cinema tickets, blockbuster movies, online fitness & giveaways”. Incorporated in 2020 the company recently floated itself on the AQSE Growth Market (Vox Markets). According to the Vox Markets article, Good Life Plus has 21,000 active subscribers which is a useful metric to know when considering whether it’s worth a punt. The article goes on to suggest that the “company’s services offer better odds than traditional prize draws” which is questionable as many free to enter prize draws, especially on social media, don’t attract 21,000+ entries. Good Life Plus aims to attract subscribers in a number of ways. Firstly they offer a free entry to one of their many giveaways. Just register your email address with them. You can then go on to get further free entries via a 7 Day Trial but you do need to enter payment details. If the service is not for you then you can cancel, otherwise you’ll be paying a monthly subscription ranging from £11.99 up to £29.99 (Feb 2024). The cheaper package gets you 25 entries into 30+ draws a month plus access to deals and offers. Stump up nearly £30 and you’ll 150 tickets per draw, a free movie each month, 2 Vue Movie Tickets plus the deals and offers. Under offers you’ll find things like 25% off Caffe Nero Coffee, 60% off Hello Fresh, Up to 40% off Odeon Cinema and discounts on theatre tickets.


WinMore are a new site on our radar but they have a very similar approach and model as Good Life Plus. We think that they initially started life as a raffle style site but changed their approach at the start of 2024. The site is run – or at least owned – by a company called All Star SAAS LTD but details are quite limited. Whilst Good Life Plus try and entice in subscribers with big prizes like cars, holidays and cash, Win More’s offerings are slightly more modest. Amongst the prizes they have listed (Feb 2024) are Kurt Geiger Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Nintendo Switch and Versace Jeans Couture Trainers. As far as we can see there are no freemium incentives to join WinMore although the terms do suggest that there’s a 7 day trial available. We couldn’t find any indication of one in the sign-up area. Instead it’s straight in with the subscription service but it is cheaper than Good Life Plus. For WinMore a standard membership costs £1.99 a month whilst a Platinum one is £9.99. At the cheaper end of the scale you get 25 entries in each draw whilst it’s 80 entries (triple the standard) by paying almost five times more. You also get access to deals although you don’t know what deals until you’ve registered so you don’t know whether it’s worth it. The site also indicates that WinMore has a 5/5 rating on Trustpilot, but they don’t link to the review platform and we couldn’t find them listed there either.

Cost Per Entry

£11.99 a month may seem like a lot of money to spend on entering competitions, but if we break it down then it actually costs you 40p per prize draw at Good Life Plus. Comparatively that’s the same as entering 10 postcard comps with a first class stamp (£1.25), six £2 online entries at ITV or buying a bunch of qualifiers for a purchase necessary prize draw. Over at WinMore you’re paying just 4p a prize draw assuming the cheapest subscription. In those terms everything sounds pretty decent but do people win the prizes that are being advertised? Both sites featured here do have winner pages although both are quite limited in the information they reveal. WinMore for example don’t have any evidence of any live draws, whereas Good Life Plus does, but the latter also doesn’t seem to show every winner. On the flipside you can go to the Good Life Plus YouTube channel and watch the daily draws. Occasionally there are free prize draws for viewers to enter too so it’s sometimes worth dropping in when the draws actually take place live. Another plus point for Good Life Plus is that they do have videos of people receiving their prizes. So for example you can watch Nigel celebrating a £25,000 win and Peter collecting a Range Rover Velar.

Offers & Discounts?

Paying a monthly fee to get entries into various prize draws and access to rewards obviously is attractive to many people given the 21,000+ that are reportedly subscribing to Good Life Plus. Whilst the prizes on offer are Good Life Plus such as £25,000 Cash, Maldives Holiday, Land Rover Defender, Ineos Grenadier, Mercedes C63, Rolex Day Date 40 are very very attractive, it is worth noting that the odds of winning are based on subscribers. The more subscribers a site has then the less chance you have of winning even if the cost is 40p per entry. WinMore, being the new kid on the block, may have smaller prizes on it’s books but at least early doors you’ll have more chance of winning. The problem with new sites is whether you trust them. We don’t know much about WinMore but think the site offers insufficient background information, claims 5/5 reviews it hasn’t got and doesn’t even link to their own social media page. Whilst the draws are the incentive to sign up with subscription sites, we think the offers and deals are the long term aims of the business model. Essentially you’re paying £x a month to be part of a club to get some discounts – which may or may not be exclusive. That’s great provided you can make the offers actually work for you. E.g we don’t visit Caffe Nero, use Hello Fresh or visit Vue Cinemas so there’s no value in those offers.

So Are They Worth Joining?

If you’re in the “don’t spend a penny on comping” camp then subscription sites won’t be for you. However if you’re happy to spend on qualifiers, comping services, stamps etc then maybe it might be worth a consideration. In terms of price per comp there’s some value. If you can make the offers work for you at the same time even better. Where things fall down a little are chances of winning and obviously costs. We’re ambivalent about the various free entries and free trials offered because the draws are loaded in favour of subscribers anyway. Another concern is in terms of being able to cancel memberships. In our view, especially in this day and age, if you can register and subscribe online then it makes sense to be able to cancel online. That doesn’t seem to be the case at least with Good Life Plus. At WinMore there’s a ‘manage subscription’ section but we don’t know if you can cancel via that (as we didn’t sign up for a subcription). We couldn’t see anyway of deleting our account though. Additionally these kind of sites make money from promoting offers and deals so will aim to push things in your direction via emails and SMS. So that’s another thing to consider.
