McKinney are back again with yet another property draw and again they're heading to Spain. La Zeina is a "small coastal urbanisation located in the province of Alicante" on the Costa Blanca and if you're lucky enough to win this draw then you could be enjoying some sun all year round in a two bedroom luxury apartment. We did a Google search for the apartment building shown on McKinney and that took us to Rightmove which is listed a 2 bedroom apartment for 235,800 euros. What is worth checking out with this particular listing is the building work around the area. Whilst it might be nice to have an apartment at this location - if the intention is to sell on then you might be up against a whole bunch of new builds. The listing also indicates that the apartment is part of a residential complex of a total of 94 modern 2 bedrooms apartments and penthouses in Villamartin.

The Property

The property being offered is located in the Roldan area of La Zenia, roughly 15 minutes away from the coast. The apartment is part of a "secure complex, with a community pool and enclosed play park area". The apartment has two bedrooms but the apartment can sleep up to 6 thanks to a sofa bed in the lounge. Outside you'll find a large front garden with BBQ, loungers and enough space for outside dinning. McKinney don't give any details about rentals with respect to this villa, but if you do look at that as an opportunity don't forget to take into account local taxes etc. Also not given in the details is whether McKinney will pay for travel costs to go to Spain to sort out the transfer of ownership, fees etc etc. If owning this stunning villa isn't for you then you can take a 175,000 cash prize.

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the competition for the chance to win an apartment in Spain or 175,000 cash you simply need to answer a multiple choice question. 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. We all know the capital of Spain right (and it's the same question that McKinney seem to use for every single one of their Spanish property prize draws). 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.

79999 Tickets

McKinney Competitions aim to sell 79999 tickets at 19.97 (total revenue just under 1.6million of all tickets sold at full price) by the end of May 2024. This may seem quite an ambitious deadline but these platforms are managing to shift tickets quite quickly either due to an engaged audience or by offering discounts. For example McKinney have kicked this one off with a 50% discount (9.97 a ticket). Further discounts can be achieved by buying tickets in bulk - for example 5% for 5, 10% for 10 and 15% for fifteen. The maximum ticket purchase seems to be 20! At time of writing 4219 tickets have been sold.

Our Verdict

Unusually McKinney have not one but two property prize draws running at the same time. There's this one and another chance to try and win the apartment in Liverpool. The latter is set-up to run for potentially 7 weeks but this one only has a couple of weeks to shift all the tickets. McKinney have kind of dug themselves a hole though because people are cottoning on that ticket prices get heavily discounted towards the end of these promos. Therefore if you're unsure about taking part then maybe hold on until the last day and potentially save some cash. If there's a big discount great, but if not then don't bother and wait for the next time. Whilst the apartment looks great we would love to know how much building work is still going on at the location. Enter Competition Here
