No sooner have Elite Competitions closed one property prize draw then they're back with another. With Bounty and McKinney also churning out house competitions it's a busy time for this sector. Anyway this time round Elite are back to Blackpool and they've got themselves a recently renovated six bedroom property on offer. The good thing about Elite is that there's little faffing around with respect to location and price - simply because they provide that information. This property is located on Napier Avenue which is just a couple of minutes from Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Sandcastle Water Park, The Beach and Pier. Elite say it's valued at 350,000. A similar property, with 5 bedrooms, on the same road is under offer in the region of 325,000 (On The Market). The actual property we believe sold for around 330,000 based on this listing also from On The Market.

The Property

The property is described by Elite as a "truly exceptional, recently renovated six bedroom family home" and "no expense has been spared to transform" the home. Details are quite limited although Elite have provided a lot of photos. However if you check the link above you can find a layout of the property and more images. The property has three floors with three bedrooms on the top floor, two with en-suite and dressing rooms. The main bedroom and second bedroom occupy the middle floor whilst bedroom 6 can be found downstairs at the back of the property. A large living room, dining room, lounge and kitchen complete the set-up. 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 1800 a month or 350 a day with AirBNB. 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 Blackpool 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 500. 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 3.99 (total revenue of just under 1.2million) in just a few weeks with the draw concluding around the start of August 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 over 10,000 (or 4%) 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

If you've dreamt of owning a property in Blackpool then this might be the prize draw for you. It does look stunning and would work well as a rental given it's proximity to all the attractions the seaside town has to offer. The ticket price is attractive compared to McKinney etc and the instant wins are generous. However we wonder whether they'd be a lot more interest if Elite also offered a cash alternative to the winner? Anyway hopefully we'll be seeing more property prize draws from Elite as they seem like a decent company. The only issue we have is again with respect to responsible play. An entrant can potentially purchase 500 x 3.99 tickets. They do have a link to Gamcare but no information about self-exclusion, deposit limits etc. Enter Competition Here
