Elite Competitions have been on an advertising spree of late - including TV commericals - and are now hoping to cash in with a new property prize draw. Once again they're sticking to their local area of Lancashire. Or more specifically Poulton-le-Fylde, a market town north east of Blackpool. The good thing about Elite Competitions, especially when compared to Omaze, is that there's little detective work needed in locating the property. This is because Elite kindly publish the postcode. The property is valued at 250,000 and is located pretty close to their recent bungalow winner. A Google search does suggest that this particular proeprty was up for sale with Rightmove at some point but we can't find any caches or direct links to provide any more information.

The Property

The property is described by Elite as a "simply stunning, recently renovated three bedroom semi-detached family home". Details beyond that however are pretty limited. We can tell you there's a kitchen/diner and a decent looking garden because there are plenty of pictures on the website showing images of the various rooms. To be fair it does look stunning. All furnishings are included so it's ready to move in or rent out should you prefer to do that. Elite Competitions will cover all legal fees and stamp duty on the property. If you do win and decide that you'd prefer to rent it out then Elite do suggest that you can expect up to 900 a month. The company will help you out with this too which is a nice bonus. Unusually for this kind of prize draw there's no extras for the winner in terms of a cash prize, car etc. Additionally there's no cash alternative!

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the prize draw for the chance to win this home in Poulton-le-Fylde you simply need to purchase your tickets from Elite. There aren't any questions to answer but you will need to register. Tickets can be purchased as singles and it seems the max you can purchase is 200. Payments can be made using PayPal, Visa, MasterCard and Apple Pay. As always it might be worth checking for discount codes and/or chances to win tickets on Elite Competitions' social media pages. There is a free entry route offered for entrants who wish to take that option. Entry is via postcard and details about how to complete your entry are given on the website. Only one Postal Entry is permitted per prize draw for each registered account. Postal Entries are limited to one entry per person to each draw.

299,999 Tickets

Elite Competitions aim to sell a maximum of 299,999 tickets at 3.39, there cheapest ever property prize draw (total revenue of just over 1million) in just a few weeks with the draw concluding towards the end of June 2024. The ticket price is reasonable although it'll be interesting to see if Elite sell out. With such a high ticket target they can guarantee the property will be won at around 25-30% sales. At time of writing just under 17,000 (or 6%) tickets had been sold so there's a long way to go. As far as we know there are no charity donations planned for this particular prize draw and the property will be awarded regardless. Their FAQ states that the "draw will always go ahead regardless of the ticket sales".

Our Verdict

Elite are hoping to get entrants excited about their property prize draw by offering their cheapest ever ticket price (for such a draw) and loading it with some serious instant win prizes. Cars, motorbikes and even a Bali holiday are on the instant win list although it'll be interesting to know just how many of the 2000 prizes on offer actually get won. At time of writing 6% of tickets had been sold for the main draw and 6% of instant wins had been dished out (no major prizes). It'd be therefore interesting to know how random the instant win disher outer mechanism actually is with this kind of draw. The ticket price is decent - which may mean no heft discounts McKinney style as the clock ticks down - and the house looks good, but we'd still prefer to see a cash alternative being offered.
