Raffle My House say they're the UK's first ever house competition platform. They expect to be running more raffles in the future and their Facebook page teases an announcement in February.
On 20th August, Raffle My House released a statement saying that all ticket sales would be refunded. Details about claiming a refund are given on the site. The reason for this decision is because not enough tickets were sold and a cash award may breach Advertising Standards. As a gesture of goodwill, the company have awarded a holiday to Mauritius to one lucky entrant.
It's worth noting that the failure of the competition has been assigned to "Paypal & Stripe pulling out as payment gateways".
