BOTB (Best Of The Best) Exposed — How to Win a Car?

BOTB Exposed

BOTB Review

Dream of owning that amazing car? offers just that. This is a weekly competition to win your dream car.

What Is

BOTB is a car drawing. It’s played weekly by purchasing tickets and the “spotting the ball”. You are shown a picture of a football match and you’ve got to guess where the ball should be. When the contest closes, the judges decide where the center of the ball is, and then whoever is closest to this point wins. It’s that simple. Tickets range in price from £3 – £20 depending on which car you want to win. That was where I got seriously distracted surfing through the different vehicles. I seesawed between the Maserati and the Alfa Romeo.

Who Can Participate?

The BOTB’s game is open to anyone 16 years of age or older depending on the “age of majority” where you live. What is clear is anyone can play from anywhere – as long you don’t work for The only downside is if you do live outside the UK, there could be other costs on claiming your dream car.

What Are the Prizes Offered by BOTB?

For the Dream Car Competition, there is one car award. It looks like the winner gets to choose from the vehicles advertised. Any options or upgrades are paid for by the winner. The first prize includes insurance for the 1st year and one-year warranty servicing. Winners also have the option to take cash at a value of 80%. There are 20 runner-up prizes of £200 for Dream Car tickets for another competition. Oh, and if there is a tie for the Dream Car, the person who loses gets £500 cash and £500 worth of more tickets.

Who Owns

BOTB is a registered company in the UK listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange and has been around since 1999. They have a snail mail address, phone number, and email address – plus an online form. This is the dream child of William Hindmarsh who always wanted to own that dream car and decided to set up a game for others to be able to do that.

What Are the Terms & Conditions?

When I first looked at the prizes offered in BOTB’s Dream Car Competitions, I got all excited because I misread the small print. I thought it said that ticket entries for each of the prizes are limited to 150 people. What it actually says is, that tickets are limited to 150 per person plus any “Supercharged Loyalty Club Tickets”. The Supercharged Club is a bonus system for extra tickets and refer-a-friend cash awards.

Also in the small print, if the car is delivered in the UK then UK VAT is paid by If it is delivered to Europe, UK VAT is paid, but any other costs like taxes, import duties, and registration costs will be paid by the winner. That goes for any other country. They’ll get to the closest port and then you’ve got to sort out the rest.

How to Collect a Prize? will contact the winner, but if they can’t within 5 days, then it goes to the next person. Disqualification can also take place if you break the rules of the game and mostly that looks like getting more than the limit on tickets. Winners have to provide a copy of their passport, prove the credit card used to purchase tickets was theirs, provide pictures of them, and pose for photos and videos.

BOTB Feedback and Complaints

Is Legit?

This site looks legit and does exactly what it says – players can win a car a week. I love the concept of a chance to win my dream car. The “spot the ball” idea is a hilarious way to choose a winner. The only downside is not knowing how many other people you are playing against!

BOTB gets a thumbs up partly for its simplicity and partly for the amazing different dream cars to win. I’m going back to looking at cars!

  1. Im 61 my name is also William im from the uk but now retired living in Mexico i coach the children football in the poor communities ive been doing BOB car competition for the 25 years its been running ive had my X close to the Ball many times but never won and ive always thought that the judges he uses ate far from accurate with their opinions of where the Ball should be , why not pre determine where the Ball is then blank it out so entrants cannot see it thats how lttñewoods spot the Ball used to operate? Also i want aware until now reading your information that if i win IF ? that I would have to pay the import taxes to México 😞⚽️😞 thats not right considering that William of BOB makes millions of £ from this competition. I think its time to say goodbye to BOB it will be my 62nd Birthday on February 28th i think that will be my final entry the odds of winning are probably more than winning the lottery seems i wasted my money. William Windsor King México.

  2. There is definitely a prize draw. But it smells like bullshit to me. Video from November… and in the video it’s summer. Resigns…

  3. Looking at profile of many winners of competition, it seems a staged competition. Most of the times, the reason provided by judges for spot of the ball is very illogical. At that time, it genuinely feels like they want to put the ball at a place where it favours their chosen player. I’ve played it for few months but the logic to choose the ball and spot chosen by judges at the end does not match. Their choice to photoshop one eye of character in the picture defies the logic of visual line of sight. In such case, a fix spot of the ball can never be determined.

  4. I have been a regular player for around 3 years. But over the past few months I have become a little wary of just how the judges are placing where they say the ball is meant to be! I have on several occasions been within a micro of where the winner has been. But lately I’m wondering if it’s Stevie Wonder who is having the final say on where the ball allegedly is! Because going on the given information in some of the competitions I haven’t been in the same hemisphere as the judges final decision! And I have wondered how the hell they judged the ball to be on the spot they say it is!? Because when you go on the evidence supplied in the comp pic I just don’t see how they have come to some of their conclusions. I’m not saying it’s a con or a scam! But when I’m left questioning the validity of the final verdict! I’ve decided I’m out! I have even left a free ticket and a small amount of dream credit as I’m just not going to waste my money. It’s been fun, but no more! Thanks but no thanks.

  5. I strongly think BOTB is good, but only for it’s local GB citizens, not for international players. The thing is, if they know international players does not stand a fair chance, they shouldn’t make it look as if it’s fair for us. Look up their history and you’ll see 99.99% of it’s winners are from GB. They’re just raking in the money from international idiots like myself, thinking we’ll ever get a call from them. They told me once that someone from Canada won, it turned out that the winner was from GB who was holidaying in Canada at the time that they won.
