QUESTIONS & ANSWERS


The National Property Draw offers a selection of competitions from Lifestyle and Special Event competitions to property competitions, which offer a potential combination of incredible prizes and gives entrants the opportunity to become a homeowner.

It is neither. The National Property Draw is a paid prize competition platform. As a prize competition, we are required to ask entrants to answer question(s) / complete a puzzle that covers the skill, knowledge or judgement element as set out by law and guidance issued by The Gambling Commission.

We can only award the prize to the actual entrant; we cannot transfer the prize to a person you nominate. However, after you have been awarded your prize if you wish to gift this to someone else, this is entirely at your discretion (although there are some restrictions which apply to the transfer of certain prizes such as cars and alcohol).

Unless stated otherwise the National Property Draw will choose the colours of any items that make up the prize with the exception of customizable vehicles where the winner will be able to choose their preferred colour.

No. I am afraid we cannot answer any questions about the specific products that make up the prizes.

No. The National Property Draw is a registered company with long terms ambitions to award incredible and life-changing prizes to its entrants as well as providing much-needed support to incredible charities.

The prize is not guaranteed, and we do require a minimum number of paid entries to allocate the prize in full as described. If the minimum number of paid entries is not met by the close of the competition, The National Property Draw reserves the right to allocate cash or part of the prize or a combination of both. If the minimum number of paid entries is not met and we are unable to allocate the original prize, the substitute prize may be a combination of the prizes listed or a cash value. This may be significantly less in value. The guaranteed prize value if we do not reach the minimum number of paid entries to award the prize in full is 65% of total revenue received from sales (excluding the £0.25p administration fees that are applied at checkout per purchase not per entry) no other costs are deducted before the winner receives their prize. Examples Property Competition sells 58% of available entries, and the prize fund was worth £1.75m based on the sale of all 350,000 entries available at £10.00 per entry. The prize value that would be allocated would be 65% of all entry sales (excluding the £0.25p administration fees that are applied at checkout per purchase not per entry). The sale of 58% of 350,000 entries available would be equal to 203,000 entries purchased at £10.00 per entry. Total sales would amount to £2,030,000. The winner would receive 65% of the total sales, which would be £1,319,500. Our nominated charity would receive £497,350, and the remainder would go towards our operating costs. Lifestyle & Special Event Competition sells 58% of available entries, and the prize fund was worth £300,000 based on the sale of all 100,000 entries available at £4.50 per entry. The prize value that would be allocated would be 65% of all entry sales (excluding the £0.25p administration fees that are applied at checkout per purchase not per entry). The sale 58% of 100,000 entries available would be equal to 58,000 entries purchased at £4.50 per entry. Total sales would amount to £261,000. The winner would receive 65% of the total sales, which would be £169,650. Our nominated charity would receive £31,973, and the remainder would go towards our operating costs.
