It may sound too good to be true, but this contest is for real. For £10.50 ($14) plus transaction fee, you can enter a lottery and have the chance to win a swanky English mansion in Devon, a Rolls-Royce, £50,000 in cash, and other prizes, including a fully-stocked wine cellar, a three-hole golf course, a tractor, bills paid for a year, all the furniture and contents of the mansion, and a house staff for a whole year.
The lottery, titled “Win a Millionaire Mansion Competition,” was launched by an English millionaire looking to sell his property and support different charities in a rather novel and hassle-free way. The millionaire prefers to remain anonymous.
The property, located near Tiverton in Devon, was built in the 1990s by the millionaire and his wife.
The savvy businessman explains:
“We’ve had some wonderful times in the house, which we designed and built ourselves. However, we have two grandchildren who live four hours drive away and we want to be closer to them. We thought that selling the house through a competition would be a fun thing to do and would mean we could raise money for some of our favourite charities. We don’t want the hassle of moving everything out. We just want to walk out with our clothes, personal possessions, and family photos. That also means the winner has a ready-made home to walk into.”
The mansion has four bedrooms, a drawing room, a dining room, a bar room, and kitchen-breakfast room, and a library.
Out in the terrace is a covered barbecue area with steps leading to sprawling lawns. There is also a golf course, a pond, a 10-acre garden, and a leisure complex that features a pool, gym, summer house, barns, and a granny flat.
Those interested can visit the lottery website, pay for the ticket (plus transaction fee), and correctly answer one multiple-choice question.
Even those who don’t get picked for the top prize have the chance to walk away with other goodies. There will be nine cash prizes of £10,000 each.
Only entries from residents of England, Wales, and Scotland that are aged 18 or over are allowed.
The lottery will run until November 30, 2018 or once 1,000,000 entry forms are received. The homeowner hopes to sell 500,000 tickets, which amounts to proceeds of £5.25 million. The sellers will donate £2 from every ticket sold. In case the goal of 500,000 tickets are not sold, the grand winner will instead get an alternative prize of at least £100,000 in cash.
