A: Our competitions are run for UK RESIDENTS ONLY (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales) If you are outside of these areas, we would not recommend entering our competitions as competitions laws can vary in other countries.

You can also log into your account and check your purchase history, showing you your past and active competitions tickets.
A: Our smaller competition draws will automatically select a winner from the sites built in random number generator (BRNG)
Some of our larger draws will take place live and use a Random Number Generator online.
A: We will contact you by email or telephone after the live draw.
You are reminded to make sure ALL your details are correct and up to date in your account.
A: The competition you have entered will be the prize you receive, unless otherwise stated in the specific competition you entered in.

You can do whatever you so wish with it, you can wrap it up for someone’s present or anything, including selling it.
A: Some of our prizes can be sent digitally via email or bank transfer, so there is little time to wait after it has all been confirmed that you are a winner.
This will obviously depend on the type of competition you have entered. If you have entered a specific prize draw that requires a product to be delivered this will be sent ASAP to the address we have on record in your account.
A: We would ask you to have a photo taken with your prize if possible, this could be done by yourself at home and sent via email to us.
We would then use this image promotionally via our website / social media sites.
The reason we ask this, is so others who play can actually see the winners and know it is real, PLUS we ALL want to see your happy smiling face with your winnings.
More information on this can be found in our Draws and Competitions T&C’s
A: If you win site credit, we will automatically update your account with the amount won and an email will be sent to you to let you know.
You can use this credit whenever you like and use it partially if you wish. So for example if you win £20 and your next purchase is £5, just add the coupon code from your account to your checkout and this will pay for it. It will then automatically update your account credit to the remaining £15 for you to use next time.
However, the site credit co not be used in conjunction with any other coupons or discounts. It also can not be used for the purchasing of any of the ‘Instar Wins‘ products.
