How To Enter Elite Competitions
To enter a prize draw at the site you need to first be registered and logged in to your Elite Competitions account. After you've selected the prize competition that you wish to participate you will need to then select your tickets by either picking your own or using the Lucky Dip option. Complete your entry by making the appropriate payment. Each competition has a limited number of tickets and the competition closes when all are sold. If all of the tickets have not sold after the first extended time period, a 7 day extension will be added up to a maximum of 4 times.
In the event that not all the tickets have been sold after all the extensions then a cash prize will be awarded. This cash prize will equate to 70% of tickets sales. A free no purchase necessary option is available for all competitions. However details of how to enter are buried deep down in the terms and conditions. Find item 16 in the terms for the details. Note that you still need a registered account to enter via the NPN route. Given that some draws can sell out very quickly we do wonder whether the NPN route is worthwhile for some of the giveaways.
Elite Competitions Winners
Winners are selected in live draws which are very similar to lottery number draws. Elite Competitions have their own Bernie, a random number generator, which picks a letter and number to correspond to the winning ticket. All the videos for all previous draws are online. Elite Competitions have created a lot of winners and images of can be seen. However in a random selection of "view winner video" selections we didn't see one video other than the site's placeholder video. In our view everything with respect to selecting winners is transparent.
Elite Competitions aims to be The UK's Number One prize competitions service and they seem to be doing a lot of things right. They have over 150,000 followers on Facebook and plenty of winners. According to their social media posts many competitions sell out incredibly quickly. We like the live draws and Bernie number generator but the website could be better. The NPN route could be clearer and the winners page made easier to view. As far as we can tell there are no responsible play messages on the site and each entrant can have up to 250 entries per competition.
Raffle and skill competitions can be expensive and addictive. Only wager if you can afford to lose. Sites like Elite Competitions are not regulated in the same way as other UK gambling sites. Please play responsibly. begambleaware.org.
