We Guarantee to draw all prizes regardless of ticket sales.
All of our draws will be done live on Facebook using google number generator. These draws can be watched live from our Facebook page.
Our standard maximum entries per user is set to 50 for any one competition, however some competitions may be even more or less limited. Please check the specific competition stats to view the maximum ticket amount for that specific competition.
- We think we’ve got some great prizes. Whether you fancy getting behind the wheel of a brand new sports car, donning the latest technology or embarking on a completely new experience, we’ve got it in on our Competitions, which refresh every couple of weeks.
- We have fantastic odds. Most online competition websites charge crazy mark-ups on the real value of their prizes; we’ve seen cars being sold at 5x cost, electronics being flogged at 10x their retail value and all manner of uninspiring prizes being listed at unconscionable margins. These high mark-ups translate to more tickets, and more profit for the website operator, at the expense of the customer. With Carworx Competitions, we take a totally different approach. We keep the number of entries low relative to the cost of the prize, and keep ticket prices low too, meaning that you get a truly fair experience, and ultimately a great chance of winning!
- We’re totally transparent. We always state the number of tickets available for each Competition (unless it’s a charity Competition, where we want to raise as much money for the charity as possible), and so you will always be able to know exactly what your chances are of winning right from the outset.

All of our Competitions have a maximum number of entries permitted, which varies between each individual Competition.
You must be a member to play our Competitions. The sign-up process takes less than a minute!
Your odds depend on how many tickets are up for sale on the particular Competition. For example, if 100 tickets are available in total and you purchase 20 tickets, you will have a 1 in 5 chance of winning the Competition, or even better if it doesn’t sell out! Unless it’s a Competition for the benefit of a specific charity (where we want to raise as much money as possible), we will always clearly state how many entries are available for each Competition.
Our Competitions run for a fixed number of days, and the duration of each Competition is specified on our website.
If there’s no reserve set in the Competition description (which there almost always won’t be!), then we will always give the prize away, no matter how many tickets are sold. Even if we just sell one ticket, we will still give the prize away. We think this is the only fair way to go! Draw the prize and move onto the next.
All entries are final and you will not be able to withdraw from a Competition after you have entered.
Unless stated differently on a Competition description; The draw for each Competition will take place usually every Saturday around 7pm.
You will receive an e-mail or a call congratulating you! You will also be able to see your name printed on the website as a winner, and if you managed to miss all the announcements, you’ll also likely be put up on social media as a winner.

You can view the number of tickets you have in your account in the top right corner of the screen, inside the cart. You will also be able to see your purchased tickets in the member area.
We will either hand-deliver the prize or use Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed ® to deliver all our prizes.

For vehicle Competitions, we will arrange to have the vehicle delivered to you free of charge (within the UK)
