Raffle House 2
Following their first attempt to create a win a house winner, Raffle House are trying again. A £10 ticket could win you a £500,000 property in Whitechapel or a cash prize if insufficient tickets are sold.
House Value: £500000
Location: Whitechapel, E1
Launched: 1st September 2019 Closes: 31st January 2020
Ticket Price: £10.00
Tickets Sold: Unknown
Payment Options: Online Payments
The prize is described as a "stunning and newly refurbished two bed flat". It's close to Whitechapel, Bethnal Green and Shoreditch and has a rental potential of £2100 per month! The property has a spacious living room whilst the kitchen boasts all the required mod-cons. A floor plan and photos of the property are shown online.
For this competition, Raffle House hope to sell a minimum of 60,000 tickets. In their previous competition they aimed to sell 120,000 at £5 each but managed over 80,000. The sales window is a few months, but the previous competition was extended for well over a year. As you'd expect, an option to extend the promotion is within the terms and conditions. To enter the competition you'll need to answer a question. If you don't get it right then you get another chance - this does raise the question of whether this is real "skill".
If the house is won then Raffle House will cover the winner's legal fees up to £1,500 as well as award a cash lump-sum of £3,000 to cover ground rent, council tax and utilities for a year. Once again Raffle House are supporting good causes. These are Housing For Women and Centrepoint. Emmaus, a homeless charity, is no longer supported as they don't accept donations from gambling companies.
As far as we can tell, there isn't a free postal entry route for this competition. However, paying participants can earn free entries by referring friends to enter. This is one of the first win a home competitions we've seen that have opted for this approach. There's no indication how many referrals you can make, although there is a purchase limit of 100 tickets.
Raffle House aims to offer more properties to be won via it's site. To faciliatate this, entrants are required to register and payments are taken online. The site is simple to use and of a high standard. The siteowners have come close to completing a win a home raffle - we wonder whether they will manage to conclude with their second attempt.
