We're back in La Zenia, Spain for another win a house prize draw but we're with a different platform. Normally a popular destination for McKinney Competitions, this time it's the turn of Storm Competitions, another well established pay to enter prize draw platform that competes alongside the likes of Elite, Bear and Bounty. They've even dragged in Laura Hamilton for the ride. As far as we know this is Storm's biggest competition to date and possibly their first property draw? However they do have a decent reputation and to date have dished out over 65million in prizes to over 37,000 winners. The one star reviews on Trustpilot are a good place to check for company reputations - our biggest concern from a comping point of view is that a few reviewers mention that postal entries are disregarded.

The Property

The property being offered is descibed as "a stunning, fully furnished villa on the beautiful Costa Blanca coast in Spain". We think it's located in the area of Los Balcones as there's a similar property listed for sale on Sunworld. The villa comprises three bedrooms, three bathrooms, open-plan living room, kitchen area, private pool, terrace and access to a communal pool. Storm 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. However they do indicate that the property can obtain a tourist rental license. Also not given in the details is whether Storm 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 300,000 cash prize.

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the competition for the chance to win a luxury villa in Spain or 300,000 cash you simply need to be registered with Storm and purchase your tickets. You can buy up to a maximum of 1000. Add the number of tickets you want to buy and then head to checkout where you'll find a multiple choice question that needs to be answered. It's very easy so you won't need to worry about Google or getting the answer wrong. 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. Note that entrants who do opt to try a postel entry must have an active account on Storm Competitions at the time the postal entries are processed. To see the question you do need to add something to the basket and then go to the checkout page.

99999 Tickets

Storm Competitions aim to sell 99999 tickets at a maximum ticket price of 29.99 (total revenue just under 3million of all tickets sold at full price) by the end of June 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 Storm have kicked this one off with a 50% discount (14.99 a ticket). Surprisingly there's no discount for bulk buys. However if you don't mind being associated with The Daily Mail then this link should take you to a competition page with a ticket price of 9.99. We're not sure how long the offer will last but it beats paying full price!!

Our Verdict

It's always nice to see new blood in this sector but is the Spanish Holiday Home Dream coupled with The Daily Mail and Laura Hamilton good enough to sell loads of tickets (and one day someone just might pay us commission on ticket sales)? At time of writing 7604 tickets have sold which we're assuming will mainly all be at half early bird prices. In our view that's quite slow when compared to Bounty, McKinney etc so Storm will be hoping that sales start to pick up. We're not that impressed that there's different prices for Daily Mail readers as that seems a kick in a teeth to those who purchased early as nearly 15 and from a responsible gambling point of view the max 1000 tickets option is not great (ironically The Daily Mail don't pick up on this but they do love a gambling ruined my life story when it suits them). The villa itself is lovely and on a grey June day looks very tempting. However the cash alternative is more tempting as are any discounts you can get (i.e. don't pay full price).
