Having looked into it a bit, cos I initially assumed it was a scam, most of the companies seem perfectly legitimate. Whilst there are no doubt scammers out there, the main thing that bothers me is they try to make out that the punters are all part of some great community, it seems people become both financially invested and emotionally. The people that run these companies whilst doing nothing illegal are morally bankrupt.

Should add, No issues with people having a flutter as long as people aren't being duped.

Sadly a lot of people get hooked on these sort of things
be it lotto , or scratch cards, facebook raffles all are ok if you buy into it and not EXPECT to win problems arrive when people see things they dont have a realistic prospect of owning and get hooked into thinking they will win

I too won a Skoda in a raffle...
Before I picked it up from the dealership I asked the salesman if it was the 16 valve model.
He replied Skoda only made 8 valve engines .
I had to tell him I was enquiring about the radio !

My nephew won a Skoda many moons ago when phoning up his answer that was asked on supermarket sweep.

Needless to say back in the day he sold that Skoda.

BOTB is no scam. There's a fella I know who won a Porsche 718 Cayman and £20k in cash! He kept the car for six months and then sold it. Agree though, there are some dodgy goings on out there, but BOTB isn't one of them.

LOL. If you think all these are scammers then you probably also believe everything you read on social media....

I strongly suspect that a lot of them are run by scammers...


That was your quote so I can see where his confusion came from to be fair...


Personally Iíve won shed loads from them and have to say long may they continue!

I can't help but always look at it that way too.

That probably explains how I was the only FX trader in the city that couldn't fill out a betting slip.
