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

The reviews on their website are great. Other sites were just as positive, so it looks like this site does just what it says it does – offers a car a week to win.

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. Having started playing again after a long break, I am beginning to feel the reasons I left before coming back. Like you play let’s say for a camper van or motorbike, not your usual sports cars. You don’t win no big deal it’s a competition, but as soon as the draw takes place guess what the exact same item you just played for is back up in another competition. I’m smelling a rat. They might be a registered company that contributes to charities that’s great, but do real people win. Like genuine people. And how are the exact same prizes alway up for grabs.

    • I can only guess some people decide to take the cash value once they’ve won and not the vehicle. If that’s the case then the vehicle gets put back up again.

  2. Do not understand how they close the competition at Monday and at Tuesday they are already on the other side of UK, on the winner location, already with the car selected by the winner?
    Indeed they should have a superb logistic and lots of cars in stock for this to be possible…!

  3. I have been playing regularly for several years but never won a wheel nut, let alone a shiny new car of my dreams. The videos of winners are often people living in middle income suburban housing and not in rural areas where the local media would be “hot on the trail” of a local winner. If I don’t win THIS WEEK then I will stick with the National Lottery and save my money in future. At least with Lotto any winnings can be withdrawn whereas with BOTB the credit for being close has to be reinvested.

  4. I was a regular player every week for a few years and always came up short..!! An avid football fan for many years, I could never quite understand how I was so far out on the hidden ball position, I then realised that maybe this was part of the sort of scam..!! If you were either part of the company or associated with them, you got a car, or cash, if not you paid for no chance of winning unless your chosen spot of the ball was nowhere near where it should be..??

  5. Ok reading comments on here saying BOTB is a scam. I do not believe this to be true. Yes, I have a one star because of one reason only and that’s the judges. They sure do come up with some rather strange ball positions. Maybe because they do this on a Monday Morning so they are still drunk from the night before. I my self have been playing almost 10 year and only ever won game credit. No one knows how many people around the world play this so almost impossible to work the odds out. It’s more a game of luck than any skill.There are many groups for BOTB on social media. Pays to join them and share your thoughts and positions with other players. And of course most the winners are from the United Kingdom due to the fact the majority of players are in the UK.
