About Mckinney Competitions

McKinney Competitions are owned by Top Gear Autos NI LTD and they launched in March 2020. They're based in Dungannon but also have a London office. We first learnt about them when they hosted their first property competition and gave away a 3 Bed Apartment in Belfast. This competition sold all of it's 6997 tickets in just a few days despite the price of 99.97. At time of writing there aren't any property giveaways but they do have a good mix of cars, tech and luxury items. These include a 2022 Range Rover Sport, 2022 VW T6.1 Camper Van, A Ford Ranger, Macbook Pro Bundle, Michael Kors Bundle and a Makita toolset. Ticket prices aren't cheap and typically vary between 4 and 20. There may be a small discount if you purchase in bulk.

How To Enter Mckinney Competitions

To enter a McKinney Competition you first need to answer a multiple choice question. As is usual you're not told whether the answer you select is right or wrong - so make sure you're right before going on to pay. Incorrect answers aren't included in the draw. You probably won't struggle with the questions though because they're along the lines of "What do Apple Make?" and you have the choice of iPad, biscuit and jam. Once you've chosen an answer it's simply a case of selecting how many tickets you want and completing the purchase. You may be required to register/login. McKinney do provide a postal entry route and this is linked on every competition page. Each postal entry requires you to include your details plus the answer to the respective promotion.

Mckinney Competitions Winners

Each competition has a closing date and a limited number of entries. It is feasible that the closing date can extend due to insufficient sales but this is a very active company and most draws sell out pretty fast - even at the high ticket prices. Winners are selected using a random number generator and the draws are conducted via live streams on social media. McKinney boast an impressive page of winners on their site. They provide details about the winner, location and ticket number plus there's also a link to the Youtube live draw. We like that because it provides a good degree of transparency. The bulk of winners do seem to be from Northern Ireland but there are winners from England for example amongst those listed. Like Bear Competitions it's simply because the bulk of their entries will come from their own neck of the woods.

Our Verdict

Any site that can create three property winners by selling expensive tickets in rapid time is worth taking a look at. We've been pretty impressed just how quickly and efficiently McKinney listed, promoted and generated winners for their property giveaways. It just goes to show that raffles can work provided that you have an active participating audience. The ticket price costs however may put off some visitors - even more so as you need to click on every competition page just to see the cost. Despite being a big brand in this sector - and boasting almost 200K followers on Facebook they don't have any gamble aware messaging or information about player safety such as cooling off periods or self-exclusion. In our view the big brands should be leading the way with this particular issue.
