Milton Keynes truck driver wins £12,000 prize from 60p competition ticket

Apr 2021

Barry Nunes Vaz, 40, had just woken up from the night shift when BOTB’s Christian Williams video called to let him know he’d scooped the five-figure Platinum Tech Bundle in the firm’s weekly lifestyle competition.

The prize included the latest Xbox, Apple watch, Samsung TV and more.

“I don’t believe it,” said Barry. “I don’t know what to say!”

The father-of-two from Fishermead said the win was ‘perfect timing’ after a tough 12 months.

“I’ve been out of work for a while because of the pandemic and I’ve only recently returned. So it’s been a hard year," he said.

Barry paid just 60p for his ticket to enter the competition. He said he’s a huge fan of tech and had played BOTB for a few years to try and bag the bundle.

Best of the Best PLC (BOTB) is a dream car and lifestyle competition company that has been operating in major UK airports since 1999.

“I’ve been playing BOTB for a few years now,” he explained. “I just can’t believe I’ve actually won!

“I love playing BOTB, I play for the cars and the lifestyle prize. In my spare time, I’m a bit of a bedroom DJ so this bundle is perfect for me.”

Included in the prize is brand-new Samsung TV, Xbox Series X, Macbook Pro, iPad Air, iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 6, Canon DSLR Camera.

To enter the competition, all Barry had to do was answer a skilled question.

“The question this week was on the Lamborghini Urus, and being a big petrolhead myself, I knew the answer straight away,” he said.

Barry lives with his daughter Ellie, 11, and son Nathan, 9.

BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged £15,000 cash, a holiday to Las Vegas and a gaming tech bundle.

The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £37m-worth of cars so far.

BOTB’s Christian, who surprises winners every week, was thrilled to give Barry the good news: “I have the best job in the world surprising BOTB winners each week and it was a pleasure to make the call to Barry this week," he said.

"He’s played for a fantastic prize and I’m sure he’s going to have a lot of fun with the various tech included."
