“Where's the ball?”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by DavisSloan (1 review written)

Like a few earlier reviews on this site regarding The Best of the Best, I have recently tried the spot the ball competition. I sat in my office for ages with colleagues looking at the players faces, and using the spyglass magnifier tool tried to match where the eyes were looking rather than just where the players head was looking. When the competition winner was announced, the ball was nowhere near where we had all agreed it should be. It was 2 inches lower in the photo?? I think we all… Read Full Review

Yes I agree with that entirely because the judges are always putting the ball somewhere it shouldn't be more like in favor or their chosen winner to promote the competition overseas or in their circles,look at the winners!! And to win a runners up prize £200 playing credit you got to be 1-2 pixels away.So think and think again before playing this gamble because its more like corrupted.

“Be realistic, have fun and play within your means”

Written on: 07/10/2013 by soporsche (1 review written)

Im astonished by the comments of people on here outraged because they didnt win and that the odds are low, its very unlikely you will win and of course the odds are low.. However, there is a chance and they do genuinely now have a winner every two weeks. I like this frequency and like the participation element more than the lottery. I like choosing (dreaming) of the car Id like to win and the anticipation of the reults. Yes, im sometimes dissapointed when i see the chosen location of the ball… Read Full Review

I've played best of the best for 11 years for motorbikes,cars on and off including competitions for various items and watches;i won a sat nav and had to confirm via fax several times that i accept and complete forms and spoke to their PR Lady who couldn't give me the time of day,she offered me a cash alternative of £100 but i declined.That was the last time i won anything and I got very close to the winning spot but i don't agree on ball place,as it has been even behind the head and too close… Read Full Review

The ball spot is picked by a professional not where you think it should be when the photo was taken!

Their latest winner in Auz 6 Sept 2013 doesn't show a Mustang GT500 and even more phony card board cut out of the CEO!

“BOTB.com Supercar and Luxury Watch Competition- A*”

Written on: 09/08/2013 by brettjhamilton (1 review written)

I have played best of the best for a few months now and the idea behind the competition is fantastic and really quite simple. You buy a ticket/s and this ticket is basically one 'play' where you get to pick a co-ordinate/pixel where you think the centre of a football would be on the picture! The price of your ticket depends on which car you want to win IF you are the winner. - So for example if you wish to play for a mini cooper or fiat 500 you only pay £2.50 for your ticket- IF you want a… Read Full Review

The reason he wanted a comitment before explaining the rules is because they have alot of travelers that are bored and are looking for some one to talk too, even though the company are very customer friendly the Salesman is there to earn a living not to entertain weary travellers.

“They Wouldn't Even explain anything till I paid! ”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by ThisIsReallyMe (1 review written)

So I'm going through an airport recently and I caught my dad chatting to one of these 'sales guys' about to pull his credit card out. I start chatting to them (I assume it's a raffle style) and ask how many tickets they have sold. They replay with it's not a raffle, if you pay then I'll take the time to explain how it works (alarm bells). So I start asking what the published odds for winning the various prize odds, again I'm told it's not a raffle or a lottery and it works differently… Read Full Review

“Don't bother, Best of the Worst.”

Written on: 15/03/2013

It's not at all like the car competitions in Dubai. There - pay 100 pounds - you are one of only a fixed number of tickets - they draw it out of a hat. The car in the competition is the one they have on the floor. Easy - fair. These clowns seem to have the same set up. BUT you agree to play then you find out that they play a 'spot the ball' competition - BUT you aren't allowed to choose - they do it for you! Also they say - don't worry about the spot the ball - it is irrelevant to the… Read Full Review

Its only since I have returned from my holiday and had time to look into this company and competition that I realise just how stupid I was to play!!... Just looking on their website and across the net the chances of winning although they make you feel like they are good are terrible! 500,000 - 600,000 made on each comp for a supercar they probs buy for about 80,000.. so bad odds already... but most people get discounted tickets and thousands get free goes from getting close in previous… Read Full Review

“Where are they looking???”

Written on: 13/10/2012 by Balvennie (1 review written)

Once again I'm in utter disbelief at where Best of the Best's "professional" judge decided the ball was. So many times I've checked to see how close I was, only to see the location picked nowhere near where all the players were looking (or where the ball could realistically have been). I've written to BOTB a few times to complain. Once I got a free ticket because so many other people had also complained, and once I had a phone call from someone there to try to assure me it's all legit. I don't… Read Full Review

Best of the Best airport super car comp! "Gauranteed monthly winner", may be, but not of the super car you dream of!!!.... The whole set up is majourly flawed. I'm a close friend with an ex employee of best of the best whom worked there for years. Your far better putting your money on the lottery as it's pretty much an expensive blag! It's soo rare that anyone ever wins a car, due to the way the competition opperates on a "spot the ball" competition. Each month, 9 times out of 10 there are… Read Full Review

Yes I can see what you mean going by the car winner for 15/1/2014.Managing Director Mr Hindmarch took the Italian winner to a porsche dealer and let the winner sit in the supposed Porsche Boxer car he won in the show room, but in the end they only showed the winner uncorking some wine outside the front glass window of the show room,so if you believe this is the same as the 3 card trick,yes it is so where is his car won then???

I am writing this in regard to the August 2008 competition...
The actual place chosen by the professional in my opinion is so far off where the ball I think should have been. I'm sure my thoughts are echoed by all those that didnt win so its not surprising that I would say this!

My method was to line up the eyes of the players, particularly the ones who are jumping for the ball. If you do this, the place chosen by the professional is nowhere near the actual spot. I realise also that I am… Read Full Review

Meridium69's Comment

Written on: 09/07/2012

exactly how frustrated I felt every time when I saw the ball in a place where it should not be! and I also got a few points worth to ponder:
-we never know who the "professional" is,neither we know what affects his decision,let's say if he is kindly asked to put a ball at a place marked by a friend ,it's impossible to prove,that this wasn't the place of which he actually thought. to put a ball this way actually nobody needs a professional-it could be any clown from a street.
-considering the expenses for renting the cars,salaries for staff,etc. looks very dubious they can easily part with an expensive car ,and now they claim even 2 cars, a month,simple arithmetic.
-but my most concern is something else.eventually I got convinced,that the chances of winning are 0.00000000... and decided to quit,I logged in and tried to close my account forever.How surprised I got when found ,that it's not an option! I wrote an email to the help desk,and got quite a weird reply,that I will not get newsletters from BOTB anymore until I chose to start receiving them again.But this was not my question at all!

Written on: 03/09/2008

Given they are present in many UK airports, this company seems big enough to deliver on its promises. And it has to be said, the cars are really nice. But you have to wonder how many tickets they need to sell to pay for their rent and all those salespeople in the airports, must cost an absolute fortune. I played twice and never won anything, I'm hardly surprised... I don't recommend this if you want a realistic chance of winning, just go for it if you have plenty of spare cash and love the cars… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/07/2012

my own experience(i have tried to win a car more than one year,though in vain) tells me this lottery well might be a scam,which however is very difficult to prove.
1.good points-found none
2.dubious points are:
-my results have rarely got even into the "white zone",regardles of tactics I tried.this itself is not a proof of scam.but having read reviews of others with similar "success" convinces me,that something is wrong. There is a "professional",who is taking decisions and whom you never know and neither you know how it comes to he generates his decisions,which are very dubious too often.
-simple arithmetic(calculate the cost of the rented cars,staff,the prizes,etc and compare it to ticket prices)makes it very difficult to believe,that a car might be given away every month. knowing personally a winner could deny this doubt,yet I have none.this winner well might be a fictitious characters or some friend or relatives,or members of a "lounge".
-when generating a decision,this "professional" always have results visible and analysed,and always can choose a point,which is wanted by members of their lounge,as a participant does not have a chance to see the process of the decision generation.
-all the above could be just a mumble of a looser,if not the.....
once I decided to quit,I found that there is now an opportunity to close the account!!!!!! I wrote a letter to the help board asking what I should do in order to close my account,but the reply was something weird: "uncheck the "receive news about BOTB field",and you will not receive our letters anymore,if this is the case"!!!! of'course it's not!!! I just want to close my account forever,but can't do it!! How can I be sure ,that my personal data is not being used against me???
Think twice before you try this lottery. Even UK National lottery,however scarce the chances seem,gives you more chances to win,as I personally won £20,which at least covered my expenses.
