Win a 5-bedroom Devon property with fishing worth £1 million for £25! Oldborough Retreat is an 11-acre estate complete with fishing lodges, a lake and house.
This property prize is perfect as a family home or for any fishing enthusiast. Brian and Wendy Wilshaw are hoping to raise £1.15 million by selling up to 46,000 tickets to give away their home.
In order to become eligible for the prize, players must answer a simple question on the website: "What is the price of an adult full season coarse fishing licence for 2008/2009?". The competition is open to players worldwide and ends as soon as 46,000 tickets have been sold.
- Type: Quiz or Questions (Paid)
- Ticket Price: £25
- Estimated Value: £1,000,000
- Total Tickets: 46,000
- Location: Devon, United Kingdom
- Ends: 7 December 2008
The competition successfully sold out two months before the expected end date in December. However, the Wilshaws were forced to postpone the draw for a full seven months to allow them to complete their discussions with the UK's Gambling Commission. Finally, in May 2009 they were given the green light to proceed and on 22 May the details of the property winner were announced.
Congratulations to 36-year old Christoph Jaeger from Hamburg, who won the £1 million Oldborough Retreat with ticket number OR91897!
