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. A work colleague of mine won a BMW M3 and £40k..they surprised him at his home… He didn’t just get given they one they turned up in to surprise him.. .he got to choose the colour, the spec, added a tyre pack (because they’re £300+ each).. He got the insurance paid and gets 20p (I think) back per mile for the fuel). He waited ages for it but everyone is waiting for new cars in the current climate. The cash was paid in to his account ASAP though… Hence I now play every week.

  2. I play regular been close and had credit back but it’s always the big expenses cars that seem to win and not the smaller cars I play for

  3. What a bunch of idiot reviews! Does no one actually read the website before they comment? Obviously not…
    You play, you get closest, you win. Not rocket science, are you all expecting to win every week?

  4. What gets me is when you supposedly get very close to where even the judges have all guessed where they WILL PUT THE BALL they supposedly reward you with credit to your account, YES CREDIT YOU HAVE TO THROW BACK INTO THEIR GAME SO ITS A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR THEM.
    they charge anything up to over £7 sometimes for a shot at a car,
    now lets just say you spend £2.50 in the ridiculous hope of winning i dunno say a 40 – 50 grand car. (but you wont)
    And yet doing the euro lottery for the same £2.50 you could be the winner sometimes of over £170 million fact. you could buy any number of dream cars for that money so why spend £7 or even £2.50 on a slim chance to win just one car? botb may not be a complete scam but their certainly are a few grey areas open in their favour.
    lets just keep our £2.50 back for the lottery instead. even if you don’t win you know your money also goes to alot of good causes.

  5. They list the same vehicles to win on numerous occasions despite having draws done for the vehicle you’ve entered to win. You think you’ve entered to win one thing but when drawn could win something completely different and of different value
