Win a House Competitions - House Raffles

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 2008 promotions under our Closed Competitions section. In 2018, Win A Country House sparked a revival of these house raffles but it's only since 2020 that properties are finally being won. Below are the current properties that can be won in competitions.

Entering These Competitions

We put these competitions on Loquax to show the current array of win a house competitions, what's on offer and ticket sales. A link on Loquax is not an endorsement or recommendation to enter. In our view these raffles are essentially a gamble - you are spending money for the chance to win something at long odds - so treat them the same. Only spend what you can afford to lose. Please gamble responsibly. If you're not keen on spending money then some will offer no purchase postal options. Free entry house competitions are also shown above.

The big question is are they raffles or prize competitions? In our view they're more in the latter department but it's a very grey area. We fully believe that The UK Gambling Commission need to revise their thinking on these kind of raffle style promotions. The other popular question is are they a con? We'd like to think that they are not and all promoters are genuine. However when you enter you are taking a risk. If you feel uncomfortable with any promotion then we suggest not participating. Find out more with our Frequently Asked Questions.

Run Your Own House Competition

Not everyone who visits Loquax wants to enter the house competitions. Over the years we've been regularly asked about how to run house raffles. Unfortunately we can't help you run your own competition but we have put together our top ten tips. Hopefully this guide, created from observing how things have run over the last few years, will provide you with a useful insight before your property joins our listings.
