How To Enter The Competition
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". You will need to register and login to take part. For this competition, Raffle House aim to sell a minimum of 60,000 tickets at £10 each (£600,000 revenue). Look out for special offers as you can get more tickets for bulk buys. Note that the competition will not end if the 60,000 ticket mark is not met. The promoters will continue selling tickets right until the closing date.
The initial closing date was set for a few months, but as with the previous competition this one has been extended and now has run for almost a year. Payments are done online through their own facility. In their previous competition they aimed to sell 120,000 at £5 each but managed over 80,000. 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.
Refer Friends For Free Tickets
As far as we can tell, there isn't a free postal entry route for this competition. If you see one then do let us know. Paying participants can earn free entries by referring friends to enter the competition. You'll get a referral link after purchasing your ticket. This link can be shared via social media or email. Raffle House was one of the first win a home competitions to adopt this approach and it's now a standard feature with others. There's no indication how many referrals you can make, although there is a purchase limit of 500 tickets and the maximum tickets one person can hold is 1200.
According to the terms 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. Since the competition was launched a new car or a £30,000 cash alternative has also been added to the prize pot. Additionally there have been regular prize draws offering £1000 cash prizes. This also isn't the end of the Raffle House story as we understand a third competition will launch in August 2020. Hopefully the next one will turn around a lot quicker given the current revival of house raffles thanks to lower price points.
On August 4th Raffle House concluded their second competition and created their first win a house winner. Niomi Boontam from Bournemouth is the new owner of the property plus a brand new car.
