My old friend asked about the Omaze draw that's being widely promoted on tv and online, a £million house in Devon the prize, free entry to the draw...........but. I had a look, you can have one entry by postcard free then there are options to buy multiple entries.
It's supposed to be a charity draw for the NSPCC.
Looked for the small print this is the main part:
Omaze is the promoter of the Devon House Draw with NSPCC being the charitable beneficiary, registered charity number (216401) in England and Wales and (SC037717) in Scotland. 80% of the net proceeds of the draw will go to the charity, with Omaze being paid 20%. It is expected that approximately £500,000 will be raised for the charity, which would mean Omaze being paid £125,000. Irrespective of sales, Omaze has guaranteed a minimum total payment of £100,000 for the charity. No purchase necessary. The Devon House Draw closes on 26th September 2021.
This is the place for posts that don't fit into any other category.

Those numbers show a breakdown of profit!! Presumably then the total income expected is that £625,000 + the costs of the prize and the advertising. That would suggest an expected income of at least 3.65 million yet the charity only gets half a million. Be much more beneficial if the ticket buyers just donated to the charity!!! Oh silly me, nobody woukd make a fast buck then, would they?
