BOTB Scam?

Hey everyone
just wanted to ask your experiences with BOTB, i think they don't give cars every week..maybe every 2-3 months or so, the reason i believe that is because a big percentage of the winners are old people, which is more likely not to have social media accounts.

I tried to find a guy that won the competition on facebook or Instagram but I couldnt.. i only found 1 guy who "won" an M2 competition pack and he had zero photos of his "new" car, as cover photo tho he has his "old" 1series car.
i mean common..you are a bimmer you are proud of your 1series to have it as cover photo , you won an M2 and you dont have one single photo of her?
Plus, i couldnt find any other winner on social media posing with his new car

what are your thoughts? do you know people that won? or are you one of them?

Never heard of it, looks like it's a UK/Europe thing. Might be better off posting this in the regional(UK) forum.

Haha...oops, forgot to look where this was posted. That's what I get for browsing the "new threads" section.

I've entered a few times, just a few pounds, nothing major. Obviously, I have not won anything yet!

Been around for years. Normally see them promoting at airports, shopping malls etc. I go in for it occasionally and normally get a bit of my stake back, but am still probably miles out compared to thousands of others, lol. These days i risk a few quid on revcomps. They did a couple of M3 V8s!

I think most winners decide to take the cash equivalent of the car they won.

I've played a couple times, never won, never again.
