On Tues 7th Nov (what a day!), I was waiting on a few books ordered from Amazon, when I heard the buzzer with a voice saying “delivery!” I never thought much more than the expected books - I didn’t even notice the BOTB logo on Christian’s t-shirt! Walking closer to me I thought "I've seen that face before!", but I couldn’t remember where from. He must have introduced himself, then it hit me - BOTB! Could I have won something? Still in shock, we walked out the front where a Mercedes C250d AMG was waiting - what a surprise!
It’s still surreal to me how a £2-odd ticket could have won a top of the range Mercedes AMG. My return on total investment is probably the highest comparatively with anything I have done. Having been close several times, I started watching and giving more attention to the Judging videos and using the tools on the website to improve my chances… Bingo!
It is what it says on the tin: “BEST OF THE BEST”! Great experience, great customer service, I even got a congratulatory call from the CEO. Absolutely nothing like it. I have since downloaded and watched my winning video over and over again, as I still can’t believe I actually won. With little or no football skills, a touch of luck and a lot of God on your side it can be YOU next. Anyone can win. All my friends are now playing - it’s the best!
It was only my very first time entering the competition and I really didn't have any expectations of winning my dream car. I didn't think the odds were in my favour but, to my amazement, I see Christian at my door with a brand new BMW!
It was surreal and of course a miracle, as i believe strongly in the miraculous blessing of God. I am thankful to Jesus Christ and to BOTB for making Christmas come early for my family and I.
The visit by Christian on Tuesday totally blindsided me! I had absolutely no idea it was going to be me.
People keep asking me if it’s sunk in yet and I don’t believe it has. I’ve been totally useless at work. I keep zoning out, thinking back to Tuesday or what the car will look like, did it really happen, nah it didn’t, did it? When I snap out of it it’s usually to people laughing at me saying “there he is, he’s back in the room”.
I play for the car, always have, always will. The car means a lot to me. It’s an amazing opportunity to own a brand new car that no one else will have driven other than me on the road. It’s something that most people will never get to experience. I’ve always been a Mercedes fan and I’ve had to watch in awe and I’ll admit some jealousy as friends have bought them over the years, mainly classics but still Mercedes all the same. Now it’s my turn and it’s a brand new shiny AMG!
Thank you so much to everyone of you for making all this possible.
I started playing BOTB after coming across their stand at an airport almost 10 years ago. Having discovered that the game could be played online, I have played from time to time ever since. The fact I had only played a handful of times in 2017 proves that anyone can win!
The challenge of spotting the ball makes this more fun for me than doing the national lottery. My preference for BOTB paid off handsomely when Christian and Dave arrived on Tuesday to surprise me with my win - A Jaguar XE S PLUS £20,000! I had often dreamed of winning and being able to surprise the family but the tables were turned with this win. My wife and children all knew of my win on the Monday and contrived to ensure I would be at home when Christian arrived. The utter surprise is clear from my reaction on the video of the presentation - I was totally stunned!
The whole experience has been fantastic and the post-presentation arrangements by all at BOTB has been absolutely first-class.
To everyone at BOTB, I want to say thank you for a brilliant day today. I absolutely love my Audi RS3. The car and the £20,000 has made a big difference to our lives. After so many nearly wins it was a total shock to finally get the knock at the door. I hope everyone at BOTB has a brilliant Christmas and a fantastic 2018.
Well what can I say - being woken up at 4am Mexico time and told you have won the car plus £20 grand as well, I could not believe it! Never thought it could be me - been on a high since the phone call, bottles & bottles of champagne drunk!
What a way to start a holiday and our ruby wedding anniversary, it was well worth doing it and as the saying goes - you've got to be in it to win it! Thank you BOTB.
I'd always said to my wife Claire that I was quite confident I'd win it one day - I'd been very close before and actually a runner up a couple of times, however I'll be honest and say that more recently I'd started to doubt my previous optimism a bit!
So just a normal Tuesday at work, then around lunchtime my colleague asked me to come out to reception to help him with something and hiding around the corner was Christian from BOTB! I'm pretty familiar with the surprise process having seen it many times before online but for it to happen to me in person was such a great experience and I was honestly a bit gobsmacked!
The car I won was the new Octavia VRS245 DSG, a fantastic hot hatch for the family man, and I'm taking delivery in late December/early January. I think actually picking up the car it will properly sink in at that point, but in the meantime BOTB have sent the £20,000 cash prize which is going to pay off my current car and a credit card, finish our garden renovation, book a a nice family holiday for next year and put some money set aside to cover baby expenses as my wife is expecting our second child in Jan 2018... it really couldn't have come at a better time!
To anyone reading this that's playing/considering playing, you've just as much chance as anyone else and if i can win, anyone can!!
I've been playing online for years now. I love the game and always wished it could be me, but sadly, it never was. I was always happy for the other winners who were smiling on my screen though - that gave me hope.
But one week my whole luck changed - I played my game and 2 days later I got a call from Christian asking me to Facetime him! It can't be I thought?? I was so nervous. I called back and there he was, a beaming smile telling me i was this week's winner. I'm still in a daze about the whole thing! It couldn't have come at a better time as I'm planning to get married next year!
It takes skill, it takes practice, it takes persistence and it takes a bit of luck. And i feel so blessed to be one of the lucky ones! Keep on playing and keep an eye on your phone, because the next call could be you! Thank you all of the staff at Best of the Best - such a great team!
I've played BOTB for several years, often receiving credits for near misses. But nothing compares with that call from Christian informing me that I had won the weekly competition and was to be the proud owner of a Range Rover Evoque.
Ironically I was at a car dealer having my car repaired, so the timing couldn't have been better. The BOTB team have been fantastic and I cannot praise them enough for their professionalism and how friendly they have been throughout.
I am genuinely in debt to the BOTB team and William for coming up with this competition to allow 'Joe / Josie' from down the street to win and own a real dream car. For a car nut like me it's simply beyond words.
As for the car itself - the picture tells the story. My daughter, who was also there on the day, thought there would be more scoops and spoilers, but this car is quite understated. Once she heard the engine and felt the acceleration she realised ...... a real Q car from old!
Many, many thanks again to all at the BOTB for making this happen and so smoothly. I wish you all every success for the future!
On the day I remember Christian coming to my house and I was supposed be leaving for Paris to do a delivery. I had to delay the trip while it sunk in and was in a complete daze the whole way there.
It's been so exciting in the build up to collecting my car - I’ve not been able to sleep much and I’ve felt like a kid at Christmas! Thank you BOTB!
I often walk past the BOTB stand at Stansted Airport, but this time - spurred on by my son - I stopped to play.....and I'm so glad I did. I never dreamt I would win but, within two days, Christian and the BOTB team had conspired with my wife to surprise me at work with a brand new Porsche Cayman S.
I couldn't believe it....and, if you watch me on the BOTB channel, you'll see just how shocked I was!! The car is now ordered and I have just a few weeks until it's delivered - I can't wait!! Thanks to everyone at BOTB for making it possible.
