In short, yes. Our website operates what is classed as a "Prize Competition". The UK Gambling Act 2005 sets out what can be categorised as a prize competition. In order to comply, you are required to answer a knowledge based question when entering the draw. These questions are designed in a way to prevent a significant number of people from being able to enter. Questions will all be fishing related, and so the mass majority of people would be unable to answer correctly.
Although prize competitions are not regulated under the Gambling act, please act responsibly. When the fun stops, stop.
As stated above, in order to comply with UK law you are required to answer a knowledge based question when entering the competition. To qualify for the second stage you must answer this question correctly. The second phase our of competition is completely and utterly random. Each and every ticket that qualifies for this stage will hold an equal chance of winning.
We limit the number of tickets per customer as well as the total number of tickets per competition. This ensures that every customer, and every ticket ends up with descent odds of winning. The total number of tickets per customer/competition is displayed on each competition page and will not change once launched.
The winner of the second round is selected at random via whichever method is announced for that specific competition, we will usually do this on Facebook at the same time we set a draw date. This is typically either via the next lottery draw's bonus ball number (held on wed's/sat's) or via a random number generator. We will try to mix things up to keep it interesting but will always aim to keep draws as transparent and honest as possible. The draw dates for a competition will be announced when either:
1) All tickets have been purchased.
2) The predetermined draw date has been reached (This will be displayed on the competition page if one is set).
3) We have reason to end a competition early (Giving you a higher chance at winning).
We will attempt to contact winners via the email address provided when creating an account on the site. We will try our upmost best to contact winners as per our terms and conditions. In the unlikely event that the winner does not claim a prize within the terms set out, we will announce a re-draw and repeat the process.
