    2. Legal Undertaking: By entering a Competition the entrant ('Entrant') will be deemed to have read and understood these rules and to be bound by them and by any other requirements set out in any related promotional material. Competitions are governed by English Law and any matters relating to the Competition will be resolved under English Law and the Courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction. In the event of playing a Competition online, by accepting these terms and conditions you confirm that you are not breaching any laws in your country of residence regarding the legality of entering our Competitions. The Promoter will not be held responsible for any Entrant entering any of our Competitions unlawfully. If in any doubt you should immediately leave the website and check with the relevant authorities in your country.
    3. Competition Entry: Competitions may be entered at our airport sites, shopping centres or online. Availability and pricing of Competitions is at the discretion of the Promoter:

      • a)To enter a Competition at the airport or a shopping centre, you will need to purchase Competition entries ('Tickets') through a member of staff at a stand operated by the Promoter. Each Competition will comprise of a sporting photograph which will not contain a ball. Using all the information shown in the sporting photograph displayed on the computer screen use your skill and judgement to correctly identify the grid square within which you consider the Judge will decide, is the most likely position for the centre of the ball if one had been present in the picture. Click on the screen to mark this spot (you can see your spot's coordinates on the screen). The computer will register this spot as your entry into the Competition. You may repeat this process for as many entries as you wish to make. You will then provide the operator on the stand with your contact details. You will be emailed a receipt with your personal details and Ticket entries.
      • b) When playing a Competition online, follow the on-screen instructions and play the Competition as outlined in (3a). When you are ready to purchase your Ticket(s), follow the on-screen instructions to provide your contact details and your credit card details. You will need to check your details carefully and tick the declaration, confirming you have read and understood the Competition rules. When your credit card payment has cleared we will then contact you by email to confirm your entry into the Competition. Please note that when entering online you will not be deemed entered into the Competition until we confirm your Ticket order back to you by email.
      • c) The Promoter reserves the right to refuse or cancel an entry for any reason before the close of a Competition. The customer will be informed in writing and a full refund will be made.

    4. Competition Judgement
      • a) Time Limited Supercar Competitions will close on the date specified. The position of the centre of the ball will normally be determined after the close of the competition by an independent Judge or panel of Judges (sporting experts appointed by the Promoter – the 'Judge') using their sporting experience and in the presence of a qualified lawyer and a representative from the Promoter. In certain cases and at the discretion of the Promoter, the position of the centre of the ball may be determined by the Judge before the Competition starts, and will immediately be encrypted and stored securely on our database. The Judge's chosen position will then be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the Competition Entrants is closest to the Judge's position, and therefore the winning Entrant (the 'Winner') of the prize. The Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the grid square within which the centre of the ball is judged to be located. In the event that one or more Entrants are equally close to or exactly match the Judge's coordinates (a 'Tie') when a Time Limited Supercar Competition (Competition reference prefixed with 'SC') is judged, these Entrants (the 'Competition Tie Entrants') will be asked to take part in another "spot the ball" Competition in order to determine a single Winner.

        The Tie entry mechanism (the 'Competition Tie Break') will be exactly the same as before but with a new sporting photograph and there will be no payment due. As above, the position of the centre of the ball will be determined before or after the close of the competition by the Judge using their sporting experience and in the presence of a qualified lawyer and a representative from the Promoter. If the position of the centre of the ball is determined before the Competition starts, the coordinates will immediately be encrypted and stored securely on our database. The Judge's chosen position will then be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the Competition Tie Entrants is closest to the Judge's position, and therefore the winning Entrant (the 'Winner') of the prize. The Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the grid square within which the centre of the ball is judged to be located. In the very unlikely event there is another Tie, the Competition Tie Break process will be repeated until there is a single Winner.

        Anyone involved in a Time Limited Supercar Competition tiebreak except the Winner will automatically receive £500 cash as well as £500 of Game Credit.

        The Promoter will attempt to contact Winner(s) using the telephone numbers and email address provided at the time of purchase (or as subsequently updated) and held securely in our database. It is the Entrant's sole responsibility to check and update these details. If for any reason they are taken down incorrectly, the Promoter will not be held responsible. If for any reason the Promoter is unable to contact a Winner within 7 days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of the end of a Competition, the Competition Winner will forfeit the prize and it will be awarded to the Entrant with the next closest coordinates, as defined in the judging process. In the event of a Tie Break situation, and if the Promoter is unable to contact one or more of the Competition Tie Entrants within 7 days of the end of the Competition, the Tie Break will be concluded without their Tie Break entries and the prize allocated to the winner of the Competition Tie Break who we were able to contact. The Competition Tie Entrants we were unable to contact will be automatically allocated £500 cash and £500 game credit. This will be held by the Promoter for a period of 3 months. If any Tie-break prize remains un-claimed after 3 months, the Cash Alternative will be donated to charity. For the avoidance of doubt once the prize has been forfeited the original Winner or Competition Tie Entrants will have no further claims against the Promoter.

      • b) Other Time Limited Competitions (e.g Watch): Time Limited Competitions will close on the date specified. The position of the centre of the ball will normally be determined after the close of the Competition by an independent Judge using his sporting experience and in the presence of a qualified lawyer and a representative from the Promoter. In certain cases and at the discretion of the Promoter, the position of the centre of the ball may be determined before the Competition starts, and will immediately be encrypted and stored securely on our database. The Judge's chosen position will then be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the Entrants is closest to the Judge's position, and therefore the winning Entrant (the 'Winner') of the prize. The Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the grid square within which the centre of the ball is judged to be located. In the event that one or more Entrants are equally close to or exactly match the Judge's coordinates (a 'Tie') when a Time Limited Competition is judged, these Entrants ('Joint Winners') will split the specified cash alternative ( 80% of the ex VAT UK RRP of the prize for the Competition) equally between them.

      • c) Free Competitions: Free Competitions will close on the date specified. The position of the centre of the ball will be determined after the close of the Competition by a Director from the Promoter. The chosen position will then be computed against the database of coordinates to mathematically calculate which of the Entrants is closest to this position, and therefore the winning Entrant (the 'Winner') of the prize. The Winner will be the person who correctly identifies, or if no one is correct, who is closest to, the grid square within which the centre of the ball is judged to be located. In the event of a Tie, the Tie Break mechanism referred to above in 4 (a) will be followed. At the discretion of the Promoter, and when applicable, the winning Entrants ('Joint Winners') will share equally the specified Cash Alternative.

      The Promoter reserves the right to cancel any Competition, for any reason, before the designated closing date. In these circumstances the Promoter reserves the right to transfer the Entrants' Ticket(s) into another Competition for which the ticket price is at least the same or more than the original price paid. The Promoter also reserves the right at its sole discretion to extend the closing date on any Competition.

      The Promoter will attempt to contact Winners using the telephone numbers and email address provided at the time of purchase (or as subsequently updated) and held securely in our database. If for any reason we are unable to contact a Winner within 7 days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of the end of a Competition, the Winner will forfeit the prize (or right to participate in a Tie Break process if applicable), and it will be awarded to the Entrant with the next closest coordinates, as defined in the judging process. For the avoidance of doubt once the prize has been forfeited the original Winner will have no further claims against the Promoter. It is the responsibility of all Entrants to ensure and check in their account that the contact details provided to us and held securely in our database are correct and up to date, and the Promoter will not be liable for any losses arising as a result of incorrect details being held in its database, howsoever arising. For conditions relating to Time Limited Supercar Competitions, please see (4a) above. All Entrants are automatically entered onto the Promoter's database for the purpose of conveying information as to the status of their Competition, as well as for any future promotions or Competitions offered by the Promoter.

  1. Winner's Details: The Winner will be required to send a copy of their passport to the Promoter to confirm their identity, age and also to prove that if the purchase was made by credit card that the card was legally theirs or that they had authorisation to use it, before any prize will be paid or delivered. The Winner will also be required to provide photographs and or pose for photographs and video use in future marketing and public relations by the Promoter. Following receipt and verification of the details requested above by the Promoter, the Winner will be contacted in order to make arrangements for delivery of the prize. At this point the Winner must choose between the prizes available (as detailed in the Competition prize information on the Promoters' website www.botb.com) and notify the Promoter of their choice in writing.
  2. Competition Prizes:
      • a) Time Limited Supercar Competitions: Time Limited Supercar Competitions are comprised of many different cars. For the avoidance of doubt, there will be only one prize awarded for each Time Limited Supercar Competition and not one per model of car listed. Please also note the following:
          • (i) During the course of a Time Limited Supercar Competition the Promoter reserves the right to add or remove prizes from the Competition but there will always be a selection of Left and Right Hand Drive cars.
          • (ii) The cars owned and displayed by the Promoter consist of both registered and unregistered vehicles. Please note also that some of the cars exhibited at our airport and shopping centre sites are for display purposes only and cannot be taken as prizes (the reason for this is that some of these cars have excess delivery mileage or may not be VAT qualifying).
          • (iii) If the Winner would like to take a car that the Promoter does not already own, an order will be placed by the Promoter. Please note that if the Winner decides to do this, delivery may take up to 12 months for certain cars and cars will be ordered in basic specification. All cars whether left or right hand drive will be ordered in the UK from UK dealers only. Bespoke options and upgrades can be added at the prize Winners' request but must be paid for in advance. The Winner can choose the car in Left or Right Hand Drive (subject to manufacturer availability and terms and conditions).
          • (iv) In the UK the prize will be delivered with UK VAT paid. In the EU the prize will be delivered with UK VAT paid but any further costs (VAT/taxes/import duties/registration costs due in the destination/country of final registration) will be the responsibility of the prize Winner.
          • (v) In all other countries the prize will be shipped (net of all taxes) to the nearest port and any applicable import duties/taxes/registration costs due in the destination country will be the responsibility of the prize Winner. The Promoter reserves the right not to deliver to certain countries. Please note that all our cars are supplied in the UK and therefore if exported may not be road legal in the destination country. It is the Winner's responsibility to check this and choose an alternative car or take the cash alternative if appropriate.
          • (vi) For Entrants at the Promoters' Copenhagen Airport site we offer certain cars with Danish registration taxes paid ('Danish Tax Paid') – please see the airport kiosk for details. Please note that the Danish Tax Paid option is strictly limited to certain cars and that if a Danish National prize Winner wishes to choose any other car, they will be liable for applicable Danish Taxes.
          • (vii) The Promoter will pay towards the servicing and insurance for the first year of car ownership. Invoices for servicing and insurance will need to be supplied to the Promoter before any money will be credited and the prize Winner must own the car for a full 12 months from date of delivery. The promoter will pay the Winner the following sums for insurance. A car won with UK RRP £0-30,000 will receive £750 towards insurance. A car won with UK RRP £30,001-70,000 will receive £1,000 towards insurance. A car won with UK RRP £70,001-120,000 will receive £1,500 towards insurance. A car won with UK RRP £120,000+ will receive £2,000 towards insurance. It will be the Winner's responsibility to organise their own insurance and pay for it directly. Servicing will be undertaken by a main dealer and be subject to "normal road use only". The maximum the Promoter will pay for servicing costs is £800. Invoices for insurance and servicing will be paid for by the Promoter 12 months after date of delivery of the car.
          • (viii) Supercar Competition Cash Alternative: Should a Supercar Competition (prefixed 'SC') Winner not wish to take delivery of one of the prizes (including cars or other items listed), the Supercar Competition Cash Alternative can be claimed. The Cash Alternative is 80% of the ex VAT UK RRP of the prize as detailed on our website. Please note that the additional money offered towards insurance and servicing costs for the first year of supercar ownership is not included should the Winner opt for the Supercar Competition Cash Alternative.

        • (ix) Runners Up Prizes: Runners Up Prizes will be awarded for Supercar Competitions only, in the following manner. The ten Entrants closest to the Judge's position with the exception of the Winner, will each receive £200 worth (face value) of Supercar Competition tickets for Competitions run by the Promoter. These may not be used in conjunction with any further offers and must be redeemed within 6 months.
      • b) Other Time Limited Competitions: The Winner of a Competition (excluding Supercar Competitions prefixed 'SC' detailed in 6a above) will simply be able to choose (if applicable) one of the prizes or the Cash Alternative as specified and detailed on the Promoter's website www.botb.com, relating to that Competition. In the European Union and the UK the prize will be delivered with UK VAT paid but any other taxes/import duties/registration costs due will be the responsibility of the prize Winner. In all other countries the prize will be shipped (net of all taxes) and any applicable import duties/taxes/registration costs due in the destination country will be the responsibility of the prize Winner. The Promoter reserves the right not to deliver to certain countries.
      • Refer a Friend: The Refer a Friend scheme is operated in good faith to reward customers for referring genuine friends and acquaintances as new customers to the Promoter.
