House + Cash
Although the owners don't provide details about running costs of the property, the £50,000 cash prize is a useful extra. This could help the winner determine what to do with the prize (if that point is reached). That said, a break down of monthly/annual costs would be useful. This won't be a cheap place to maintain.
Note that as this is a spot the ball competition the "right answer" is determined by a panel. According to the terms this will be "an independent panel of three judges" appointed by the promoter. Details of those judges are not given.
The organisers of House Prize Competition were pretty quick to conclude things. However the winner of this competition received a cash prize. An announcement on the website stated that "Due to the complexity of our skill-based question we did not receive the number of entrants we anticipated and did not reach the required target". An independent panel of judges selected the spot the ball location and the winner selected.
Note that although the winner's name has been released there's been no indication of the amount awarded or number of tickets sold.
