FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. How Will COVID-19 affect how the competition runs?
If the current travel restrictions have not been lifted by the competition draw on 30th September 2020, we will still draw and contact the winner the same way, but instead of asking them to verify their identity in person, we will request that they send their certified identification documents via secure post directly to our solicitor for verification, and to begin the property conveyance.
We also ask every entrant to please donate £1 with your ticket purchase to help support The Children's Society during their Emergency Coronavirus Appeal. Every pound enables them to provide lifelines to vulnerable children across the country.
Every month, every penny you donate will be sent to The Children's Society, and we will personally match all donations made by our entrants!
2. What are the prizes?
We have now surpassed our minimum sales target of 80,000 tickets and we can confirm that the main prize will be Cwellyn Cottage, our luxury retreat in North Wales, valued at £290,000!!
We will also cover all UK conveyance fees up to and including £1,500.00 inc. VAT and taxes including Stamp Duty.
£10,000 will also be awarded to the person who generates the most ticket sales through sharing their unique URL.
3. What is my URL and how do I use it?
Every entrant to CwellynDream will be given a unique link (URL) to our website. This will appear on your members account page after you purchase a ticket. You can copy and paste this link to share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and any other social media platform.
If someone uses your URL to enter the CwellynDream competition, you will get credited in your Member Account under "Ticket Sales Generated". For every 5 ticket sales you generate, you will receive 1 bonus ticket for the main prize, Cwellyn Cottage!
And remember, we will be awarding £10,000 to the person who generates the most ticket sales by then end of the competition! So get sharing and good luck!
4. How is the winner chosen?
On 30th September at 12 noon, streamed live on Facebook and under the supervision of a solicitor and invited members of the media, we will choose the winner using a random number generator. Please note, only Entries containing the correct answer to the question and valid contact information will be submitted in the draw, so please take care when entering the competition!
We will then contact the winner by email and telephone. The winners information will not be shared on our website, or publicly until they have accepted the prize and confirmed their identity with our solicitor. If the winner does not respond within 28 days from the prize draw, we will then use the random number generator to choose another winner.
5. Is this legal?
Yes, this prize competition is 100% legal.
While still rare, prize competitions to win a property are legal in the UK, if conducted correctly.
Because you are required to answer a “Skill Testing Question” before you can purchase a ticket, and you are given a Free Postal Entry option, we are able to offer Cwellyn Cottage as a prize.
We have also worked closely with our Gaming and Competition Solicitor to create a fair, transparent and legitimate experience for every entrant.
6. Why haven't I received my email receipt yet?
It could take up to 48 hours to receive your email receipt because this is a high volume competition. If you haven't received it within 48 hours then please try the following:
- Check if you are using the same email address that you used when you purchased the ticket
- Check your Junk or Spam folders
If you still cannot find your email after trying these methods, please feel free to contact us at any time.
7. Are ticket numbers assigned?
Yes, ticket numbers will be assigned, but not until the competition closes. This is because entrants can make further purchases through their account, and we also offer the chance to earn bonus tickets through sharing your unique URL. When the competition closes we will assign a number to every ticket, and send each entrant their ticket numbers before the draw takes place.
8. Where is the cottage located?
Cwellyn Cottage is located in the village of Rhoslan, just north of Criccieth in North Wales. It is conveniently located on the Llyn Peninsula, and situated amongst sweeping farmland hills, at the foot of Snowdonia National Park.
