TV prize draws – would you?
A pretty tempting prize on the ITV4 TDF highlights programme.Posted 1 year ago
£10k plus a Cannondale Super Six worth £6k and £1k of vouchers.
A £1.50 text has to worth a punt – no?
I never win a bloody thing – ever – so probably futile.
You entered anything like this and been a winner?
Guessing there won’t be much of a show of hands 😕stevemuzzyMember
I used to work for a radio station. Prizes tended to be donated by companies looking for exposure so didnt cost us money and attracted listeners so we gave away lots however most comps had surprisingly few entrants as most people think “it will never be me…” I enter quite a few because of this, won some 5.10s recently…Posted 1 year agomilky1980Member
After the comp-rigging scandal a few years ago ITV also should offer a free entry route too, usually by logging onto their website. They no longer put the question on it now so you have to watch the programme to know the answer but you don’t have to pay to enter anymore.
There’s hoardes of bored housewives who enter loads of these an win quite a few so worth a shot!Posted 1 year agojekkylMember

Yes. For sure.
I’ve won stuff before. Not via tv prize draws, granted.
A dropper post in a like n share.
Massive box of Lego when I was 9 ( some years ago now, err hem ).
Missus won £900 on the lottery.
Bottle of cheap sherry in the works Christmas raffle.Posted 1 year agocu dubhSubscriber
Typically I won a weeks training camp in a prize draw at a triathlon but you needed to be present at the prize giving to get this and knowing I wasn’t troubling the podium I had gone off home so they redrew it and somebody else won. Never mind, I console myself with the thought that Mrs CD would have been pretty upset if I said I was off on my own for a week’s training in the sun.Posted 1 year agostumpy01Member

I have always wondered this about certain prize draws – does everyone think “there’ll be no point entering”, so you actually have quite a good chance.
My wife rang a local radio station once to get into a free prize draw at a ‘rat pack’ tribute evening with dinner & booze in the local area & was amazed when she got a call, saying she’d been picked.
It ended up being a great night out (although probably not as good as a 2 week skiing holiday or £17k cash as above!!)
I’ve entered one of the gadget show text things to win tons of gadget stuff, most of which I imagine would go on ebay…..and I also entered a competition to win a restored car (can’t remember what it was now – might have been a 911) that was on Fifth Gear, I think….Posted 1 year agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
When I was a kid my mum won a £2000 holiday voucher in a ‘write a slogan compitiion’ which we spent on our first ever foreign holiday – a winter sun break to Tunisia. We arrived just in time for the start of the 1983 bread riots and the imposition of a national state of emergency and spent most of our time there under curfew in the hotel watching tanks roll past. 🙂Posted 1 year agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
Doing obscure local radio ones is probably worth it in terms of chances but the big TV program ones will have tens of thousands of entries, they run at a big profit. Ofc someone’s got to win so if you have the spare cash it could be worth a punt (just remember to opt out of marketing texts…).Posted 1 year agozilog6128Subscriber
The only prize I can see resulting from texting the number will be a continuous stream of spam texts and calls.
end the text with NO INFO. (Says this on the telly but written small obviously!) If you neglected that step yes I’m sure you’d get bombarded with crap!Posted 1 year ago
