Whilst property prize draws by individuals on platforms like Raffall, pay to enter sites such as Bear, Bounty and McKinney continue to flourish. McKinney are back again this time with a luxury four bedroom property in Ireland as the headline prize. For those entrants who may not wish to own a new home in the area there's always the chance to collect a 200,000 cash alternative. In many ways it does seem that the property prize draw market is rapidly becoming a "win a big cash sum" market as we've seen multiple platforms adopting this approach. More recently Tramway Path offered a cash sum to buy a property in London, but expanded their offer to any property in The UK in order to attract more entries. At the end of the day cash always attracts more interest.

The Property

The prize on offer is described as "amazing property situated in Armagh in the residential area of Drumman Meadows". The "4 bedroom residence offers great living space with a high spec kitchen and dining area". The rear garden apparently boasts a private entertainment area that includes a sauna! The property comes fully furnished and the pize bundle includes 20,000 to help you move in and a BMW M4. McKinney do say "this stunning 4 Bed House could see you enjoy the benefits of a Rental Income" but then don't go into any detail about how much rental you could realise. We think that most people however will opt instead for the cash prize alternative which for this draw is set at 200,000.

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the competition for the chance to win property in Armagh or cash alternative you simply need to answer a multiple choice question about the country. Note that you're not told whether your answer is right or not but the question is so absurdly easy that you won't need Google to check. Once you've made your selection it's simply a case of completing the purchase of your tickets. 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. Obviously with just a few days left (sorry) and the current postal strikes it's probably a little too late to get any NPN entries in now.

24499 Tickets

McKinney Competitions aim to sell a maximum of 29999 tickets at 99.97 (total revenue just under 1.5million assuming full prices are paid) by the end of the month. Look out for the discount code ARM20 (not sure of expiry) to get 20% of the ticket price. In addition every ticket you buy comes with the chance to win one of 60 Instant wins of 500. According to the website the draw date is "always brought forward to next working day after all tickets are designated" and that the "date counter is just a possible maximum draw date". Usually ticket sales are pretty good for property prize draws on these platforms but at time of writing around 3000 have been sold so far, which seems a little bit slower than usual. Are people getting tired of these draws or are the costs just a bit too high?

Our Verdict

It's hard to reach any insightful conclusions with respect to these kind of pay to enter prize draws because we expect them to conclude and a "house winner" created. Even with just 3000 tickets sold so far McKinney have already brought in significant revenue and it's not going to take too many more sales to cover the costs of the house and/or cash alternative. We still think that the ticket prices are too high although obviously there is demand. In a month where The UKGC may impose limits on wagers for online slots it seems strange that the commission isn't assessing pay to enter prize draws. They are equally as addictive but have none of the safe gambling rules that apply to slots, bingo etc. Enter Competition Here
