Win a House Competitions

Back in 2008, Win A House Competitions became all the rage. People saw this mechanic as a way out of the property slump - and to make a few pounds exta. The most famous of these competitions was for the Devon Estate, a property worth £1million became the first win a house competition to ever successfully reach completion.

During the "glory days" of this kind of promotion we launched our "win a house watch" where we monitored the latest competitions! Every month we checked the ticket prices and number of tickets sold so that speculators and compers could choose which competitions to look at.

However, as the gambling commission started to take a closer look at the raffle/lottery nature of win a house competitions and the fact that few ever reached completion the public fascination quickly dwindled. You can review what happened to some of the promotions under our Closed Competitions section.

In 2017, a new competition appeared - will it spark a revival of these competitions?

Should You Enter?

We put these competitions on Loquax to show the current array of win a house competitions, what's on offer and ticket sales. Few are close to selling their ticket quotas and that is a useful guide to whether you should enter at the moment. If a site doesn't show many (or any) ticket sales then we think they should be avoided, at least until sales start to pick up.

Please note we are not paid to list these competitions and information is provided for reference only.
