The Prize Online site is relatively new but it's being run by Watts Marketing Ltd who have been around for the last 10 years. At time of writing the site only has three competitions with a second hand Tuned Nissan R-35 GTR V6 and £5000 cash being the main prize. The site itself is spacious and easy to navigate. Just be warned that a really annoying "Chat To Prize Online" on Messenger pops up on every page.
How To Enter
To enter a Prize Online competition simply select the prize that you'd like to try and win. On the competition page you'll have a multiple question to answer. If you get the answer wrong your selection will appear red whilst the correct answer will appear green. You can't purchase a ticket to the draw unless you have the right answer. Once your answer is correct you pick the number of tickets you want to buy and complete the transaction. Note that the default number of tickets on each competition is 2 so just be aware in case you're looking to purchase just one entry! A free entry postal route is available for all competitions.
Each competition has a limited number of tickets that can be purchased. If all the tickets are sold before the stated closing date then the draw is completed early. Usually with these kind of draws the closing date is meaningless as it gets moved if not enough tickets are sold. According to their FAQ Prizes Online may restart the countdown if insufficient tickets are sold. If we understand their site correctly a competition will only be able to run for a maximum of four weeks.
Prizes Online are new and therefore winners are currently unavailable. We will revisit this another time. They did run a free prize draw for £1000 cash and the winners are announced on the page. According to the website winners will be drawn using a random number generator and the draw will be conducted on Facebook Live. They will read out comments and answer customer questions at the same to prove that they are actually live!
For a relatively new site they've rapidly amassed 9000 followers on Facebook although their Twitter account seems to be suspended. So should you play at Prize Online? It is relatively new so there's limited history to go on. To be fair we'll return to the site in a few weeks to see if the current prizes on offer are awarded and how winners are presented. We do think the NPN route could be clearer - for example showing the address in the terms - and that the purchase ticket number should be defaulted to 1 not 2.
Raffle and skill competitions can be expensive and addictive. Only wager if you can afford to lose. Sites like Prize Online are not regulated in the same way as other UK gambling sites. Please play responsibly. begambleaware.org.
