Following their big Oxfordshire farm house and overseas ventures, Bounty have toned things down a little with their latest property themed prize draw. This time round you could become the owner of a holiday home located in the Silver Sands Holiday Park in Lossiemouth. Lossiemouth in case you're wondering is located on the northern coast of Scotland around Elgin and above the Cairngorms National Park. It's accessible from the A9 via Inverness or from Aberdeen if you're coming in from that area. The park itself boasts a 4.2/5 rating on Google Reviews and a 4/5 rating from 539 reviews on Tripadvisor. Most of the recent comments seem to be largely postive. Although the cash alternative for this particular prize draw is £60,000 we did find an ABI Oakley 2023 (the caravan model you can win) that has recently been sold by Park Holidays in Lossiemouth for just over £72,000.
About The Property
The holiday home as mentioned is an Oakley 2023 Static Caravan. It has two bedrooms but is designed to sleep six people. There's an open plan kitchen/diner/lounge area plus one bathroom and an en-suite. Wrap around decking will also be provided so you can enjoy outdoors living and hopefully some decent Scottish weather. Site fees will be paid for 2023 and the prize also includes £500 Owners Credit for use at the park. Holiday home insurance is not included plus gas and electric bills will need to be paid. Bounty don't include information about the cost of fees - even as a guide - nor do they provide any information with respect to renting out the holiday home. We have looked at Park Holidays website to see if there's any information but details are also frustratingly limited. Our advice would be to either research the location before purchasing a ticket or take the £60K cash alternative should you win.
How To Enter The Competition
Entry to the prize draw is very easy. All you have to do is select your raffle ticket(s) and go on and purchase them. If you're not keen on trying to find your own lucky number then there is a lucky dip option. The latter is actually quite useful as it does save you wading through the lists of numbers trying to find one that appeals. Once you've picked your numbers then head to the checkout where you'll need to login/register and pay. Note that there are no questions to answer! If you're interested then a no purchase necessary route is offered in the site's terms and conditions.
Bounty Competitions aim to sell 56000 tickets before mid June in order to complete the draw. Assuming all tickets are sold at full price that equates to £140,000 revenue, which given the prize values on offer makes for a tidy profit. Kudos for Bounty. As usual they have got off to a flying start with almost 16000 tickets sold within the first 48 hours of the prize draw being live. We'd be very surprised if this particular promotion doesn't close within a couple of weeks and well before the named closing date of mid June. If you're thinking of a postal entry don't hang around sending it off.
This might not be the kind of property most win a competition fans are seeking but it is another prize to look at. Whilst the idea of having a holiday home is an appealing one we're less keen when there's extra costs to consider. Whilst Bounty are covering fees for one year and there's £5000 cash included in the package we'd love to know what costs a winner may come across in the next 12 to 24 months of ownership. The prize may actually not be that appealing. We did see that the previous owners, prior to selling to Park Holidays, had fees of around £3000 a year. Add in insurance, bills and travel costs and that £5000 doesn't last too long. Whether some of that could be clawed back via rental we don't know but again it's something to review.
