  1. Choosing a winner

Draw Based Competitions

4.1. All Entrants who have entered a Draw Based Competition in accordance with paragraph 3 above will be placed into a draw and the winner will be chosen using a verifiably random draw process (the “Winner”). The random draw will take place on the Closing Date (“Draw Date”).

4.2. All Entrants will have their names and ticket numbers put into a spreadsheet. For live draws, this spreadsheet will be visible during the live draw. For automated draws, the names and ticket numbers are put into a spreadsheet and we use the Mersenne Twister algorithm to determine the winner(s).

4.3. In the event of the draw being disrupted for any reason or having an inconclusive outcome, we can at our sole and unfettered discretion run the draw again, either through the same random draw process or an alternative method.

Instant Win Competitions

4.4. All Entrants who have entered an Instant Win Competition in accordance with paragraph 3 above will be assigned a ticket (“Ticket Assignment”). Winning Instant Win tickets will be selected prior to the Published Date of the draw (“Winning Ticket Selection”). Ticket Assignment and Winning Ticket Selection will both be performed using a verifiably random process. End prize winners will be chosen using a Draw Based Method.

For help with entries, please email us at info@phantomcompetitions.co.uk

How the draws are conducted

4.5. (a) Live draws: The draw is ruled to be valid and complete and therefore results stand as they are, as long as the balls come out with no interruption. If an unsold number is generated we will reload the chambers and keep re-spinning them until a number is generated that has been sold.
(b) Automated draws: The draw will be conducted using the Mersenne Twister algorithm to select a random number.

This is a legal requirement that we must comply with to prove that the competition has been properly administered and the Prize awarded.

10.3. Please note that under data protection laws you are entitled to request that the Promoter does not contact you and removes your details from its database. If you make such a request you will be withdrawing from the competition as it will not be possible to contact you in the event that you are the winner.
