200,000 Ticket Sales
The White's aims to sell 200,000 tickets (total revenue £500,000) by the end of December 2021 (this has been extended again from April and July 2021) in order to conclude the draw. If insufficient tickets are sold then the winners will receive a share of the compensation which is a minimum of 70% of ticket sales. However this reduces as ticket sales increase - so at 100,000 ticket sales the prize is £150K (60%). The car and holiday are guaranteed 150,000 tickets. A donation of £25,000 will be made to Make A Wish Foundation UK byt only if all tickets are sold.
There are some elements of this competition which we quite like. The addition of second and third prizes is always good and the ticket price is reasonable. The ticket target does seem to be on the high side and we're a little bit confused by the cash prize variations when certain volumes are reached. If the cash prize can be 70% at 10,000 tickets then we don't see why it can't also be 70% at 100,000. Additionally the charity should/could benefit regardless of whether all tickets are sold. Although this competition is now on it's final run, the extensions and lack of ticket sales should raise red flags to would-be entrants.
