Win a Home in the sun Announcement

~Win a Home in the Sun
Yes its Zany and a little off the wall!!


This venture is run by myself and Mushtaq, This is an idea that has been in the making for nearly 1 year.

After much researching of similar websites in the UK, where many 1000's of ticket were offered (Min 27,000), we thought it more realistic to keep the numbers lower giving people more of a chance.

We decided to donate part of the proceeds to charity, therefore, have chosen a widely recognised concern. This amount, as stated on the website is to be 3% of total ticket sales.

There is also a runner up prize of not less than 1% of ticket sales.

There is a 3-4% payment processing charge, also charges for business, legal, and advertising expenses. and 3% agent fees, taxes, utility connections, airport transfers and hotel accomodation for the winner. all of which is included in the ticket sale.

The profit is therefore very small compared to similar schemes where much larger profits are made.

The thought behind this is to give people not fortunate enough to own a home in the sun a chance to have a foot hold on the foreign property ladder.

Re: Win a Home in the sun Announcement

Obviously Lorraine some people can't work all that out for themselves.
If everyone took the time to read the tems and conditions and thought seriously about it before entering or not they would surely have realised that there are other costs involved and that it's not as straighforward as buying a house and putting it up for raffle.
I've already bought my ticket and am looking at it from the point of view that McMillan Cancer research will be getting in the region of 1350 which is no mean feat from one raffle. Reading some of the other posts it seems they think you're out to make a quick buck. I wonder if any of them have sat down with a calculator and worked out the rest. I think not.
Good luck to you and Mushtaq
Anne

Re: Win a Home in the sun Announcement

Thanks Anne,
Andy, the terms and conditions rules etc state that anyone (except family of promoters) can have a shot, There is a list of countries with reciprocal agreements. As this is set up as a UK company it is within the UK gaming law.

How many of us do the lottery? when you think of it this way it is less than 1 per week on the national UK lottery. Unlike the lottery ones chances are much higher.

After much research and many hours on the web, I wanted to keep within the realms of reality. There is a similar website in the UK for a house in Bristol, the house is worth 125,000 ticket sales of 27,000 @ 10 each.

Well done Loz.Reading other forums there are some jealous folks who resent the idea of someone having good ideas.

Re: Win a Home in the sun Announcement

Aye.. looks a bit that way. The green eyed monster is rearing it's ugly head across Turkish oriented cyberspace...

You "woman" enough to deal with it Lorraine?
