FAQ
Answer

Simply register, accept our Terms & Conditions, pay for your tickets and play our ‘Spot The Ball’ competition.

Answer

A single ticket costs $10. If you buy more than one ticket in a single transaction, you can receive ‘per-ticket’ discounts as detailed on our payments page.

Answer

The prize (as summarised above and as fully detailed in our Competition’s Terms & Conditions) includes the property, business, all business assets, $50,000 cash and a handover period to ensure a smooth transition.

Answer

Of course! All payments for our competitions are processed by a dedicated payment processing company which specialises in providing payment solutions for a wide range of businesses. Their services are fully compliant with all relevant rules and regulations concerning the secure processing of financial transactions. As a company, we do not process your debit/credit card details.

Answer

We need all players to pay for their tickets in one currency and thus we select which currency is best for each competition based on the location of the property. Casa Cayuco is based in Panama where the US dollar is legal tender and therefore it’s more straightforward and cost effective for us and therefore the competition entrants if we use that currency.

Answer

One. There is no cash alternative. Only if total revenue from ticket sales does not meet our target (see next question) can a cash prize be awarded to the winner.

Answer

Ticket prices vary (depending on how many tickets each Entrant buys) so the total value of tickets we need to sell is $2,650,000 USD (excluding the per ticket transaction fees as added at the time of purchase). This sum covers, as specifically detailed in Appendix 1 of the Competition Terms & Conditions, the value of the property, cash element, property purchase transaction costs and our fee. Once our target is reached, the competition will be closed.

Answer

The financial aspect of our business model is very similar to well-known crowdfunding sites in that a significant percentage of monies raised in a ‘campaign’ (or a competition for us) goes to the maker/creator (or in our case, the property owner and to cover the property transaction costs). Our revenue is a modest percentage of the total funds raised (tickets sold) after third-party payment processing costs have been deducted. Therefore we are not a property owner, nor are we a property agent. We simply structure and run skill-based competitions where the prize is a property.

Answer

Our standard competition time is 12 weeks with the possibility to extend by a further 8 weeks if necessary. Once our target is reached, the competition will be closed.

Answer

All players must be 18 or over. If you are not based in the UK, you must satisfy yourself that it is legal for you to participate in the game. If you find that this is not the case you should leave the website immediately. Individuals (and their families) directly involved in the creation and running of this competition including but not necessarily limited to; the property owners, legal advisors, employees/directors/shareholders of Ultra Primus and website developers are prohibited from participating in the competition.

Answer

There are strict rules and regulations governing prize competitions, lotteries and raffles. We run prize competitions and, as a key part of the process, we need to identify a winner via participation in a skill-based contest.

Answer

We will show you a photo of a ball game, with the ball removed. You must use your skill, knowledge and judgement to determine where you believe our panel of one or more sporting experts will collectively place the ball on the same photo when they judge it for us at the end of the competition. You make your selection simply by clicking on the photo and then confirming the selected position(s) (this is then emailed to you and logged against your registration details).

Answer

No, to ensure that our competition involves skill, judgement and knowledge, it is better to structure our competitions so that you are assessing the photo to decide where you believe our panel would place the ball. The person who selects the same (or nearest) point to that chosen by our expert panel, is the winner.

Answer

If, by the competition’s closing date, we have not reached our targeted value of total ticket sales we have two options: 1. To extend the competition by up to a maximum of 8 weeks or 2. To award a cash prize equivalent to 90% of the total revenue from ticket sales after payment processing costs. If the competition is extended yet the targeted value of total ticket sales is still not reached, we will revert to awarding a cash prize (although we do have the option to try and negotiate with the property owner and thus there is still the possibility, at our discretion, to award the property as a prize). If a cash prize is awarded we also pay the property owner a % fee to account for the period during which their property was part of our competition.

Answer

We have selected Casa Cayuco as a prize because it is a turnkey property which is already successful yet remains relatively small and manageable. There is already a loyal team of local staff who know the resort very well and thus, together with the handover period which we have arranged, the likelihood of the Winner continuing to operate the resort successfully is high.

Answer

If you win but can’t move to the property then we will endeavor to find a property manager for you so that you can run the resort at arms-length. This is not a guaranteed solution however we would like to ensure that your new property continues to be a success and thus we will work with the existing owner to locally source a solution where possible.

Answer

As soon as this competition closes, we will launch our next ‘WinThis.Life’ competition - in another fantastic location - however we only intend to run one competition at any one time.

Answer

We have contingency plans in place to ensure that, given various eventualities, we reserve the right to award a cash prize (90% of the total value of ticket sales after payment processing costs) instead of the property. We are very focused on awarding the property as a prize however if, for example, there is significant damage to the property or an unforeseen political situation in the host country, we would not wish to then award the property to the winner.

Answer

Once the competition ends, our panel will select the winner. We will then contact the winner via the details provided at the time of their registration on WinThis.Life. The Winner’s name, location and photograph will be published on our website. We will also contact all other unsuccessful entrants to inform them of the result. As per our Terms & Conditions, the Winner will be required to participate in any reasonable requests for publicity including photographs, interviews and videos.

Answer

There can only be one Winner of the prize. In the event that two or more Entrants select coordinates which are either exactly the same or exactly equidistant from the Judges’ selected coordinates, the winning entry will then be calculated by the next closest selection of each of those ‘winning’ players’. In the highly unlikely event that another tie then occurs, then the third closest selection will be used and so on. In the event that a ‘tie’ is declared and one or more of the Entrants involved in that ‘tie’ does not have a second selection of coordinates, the Promoter will ask each of those Tied-Winners to play a new ‘Spot the Ball’ game using the same methodology and under the same rules as in the original Competition with one ‘X,Y’ selection per player. In the event that one or more of the Tied-Winners cannot be contacted (for the purposes of playing a new Competition to identify a single Winner) within a 7 day period, then they will not be eligible to participate in the new Competition. Their Competition entry will be considered as Null and Void and thus they will not be eligible to compete for the Prize.

Answer

Sorry, as soon as a payment is processed, there is no option to have a refund.

Answer

If we are unable to contact the Winner by the end of the 7 day period following the selection of the Winner (itself carried out 7 days after the Closing Date or, where relevant, the Maximum Extended Closing Date) we reserve the right but not the obligation to identify a new Winner (selected with the methodology used to identify the original Winner). We will make all reasonable efforts to contact the Winner but will not be liable if we are unable to make contact.

Answer

The process of our panel selecting the winning position will be overseen by a third party solicitor. The solicitor will sign a document to testify that the selection of a winner was carried out in a transparent and fair manner in accordance with our competition Terms & Conditions. We will also document the winner selection process with photographs and, if practical at the time, by making a video of the process. Subject to their availability at the time, we will also invite some members of the UK press to be present for this process.

Answer

Sorry, we are unable to provide any personal tax advice. Prizes awarded in the UK do not attract tax however, depending on your country of residence, there may be a tax implication involved with winning a prize. Before proceeding, all prospective entrants must satisfy themselves both of their eligibility to enter and their own tax position should they win. Winners will not have the option to choose an alternative cash prize.

Answer

No, only private individuals can enter the competition.
