House competition?

Fancy a £1m home for £25?

After failing to find a buyer, a Devon couple are raffling their country estate. Is it a scam, or a genuine way to beat the property slump? Patrick Collinson and Ben Steele report

  • already posted when the BBC ran the story. Good luck to em but a bit misleading on the probabilities. They say that the odds of winning are one in 46,000 whereas the odds of winning the lottery are one in 14 million. Tru enough but the £25 a ticket would buy you 25 goes at the lottery. So not quite a fair comparison. I bought a ticket anyway for a bit of fun.

  • So what’s the difference between this raffle and the others mentioned in the article that were deemed illegal? If it’s just a matter of including an easy-to-answer question in order to be eligible why didn’t the others do that?

    BTW, The Sun beat The Grauniad to this story by 10 weeks http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article1349439.ece

    I already bought a ticket.. chances of winning are much better than the lottery, even at 25 quid.

    Stevie, the answer is the same as the price of a ticket for this competition.
