Oh 'Godson' He's Done It Again!

It was a cold morning in Gainsborough when Christian arrived to surprise this week's Midweek Car competition winner, Darren Godson! Having previously won both the Dream Car competition back in 2019 and Lifestyle competition last year, this makes Darren our second winner to score a hat-trick!

Darren was busy at work when Christian rocked up to surprise him with a brand new Range Rover Evoque worth nearly £50,000! As a Range Rover fan, Darren is planning to keep the car and has already specced it in his head in black and white! As a three-time winner, Darren couldn't stop apologising for his luck... but he obviously has some skill in the spot the ball game and in the surprise video he gives players a handy tip on how he plays.

But the surprise wasn't over yet, as Christian opened the boot to reveal that he had also won a massive £20,000 in cash! Darren is a mini-celebrity in Gainsborough after winning BOTB previously so he may get recognised in Tesco even more now!

Congratulations Darren!

Gainsborough man wins Range Rover and £20k to complete competition hattrick

Jan 2022

A Gainsborough man was left speechless as he won a near £50,000 Range Rover in the same national competition he previously won a Bentley and a trip to New York in recent years.

Darren Godson, 34, entered leading online competitions company BOTB‘s Dream Car contest and managed to secure the prize of a £49,000 Range Rover Evoque, as well as £20,000 in cash.

Amazingly, Darren also won the Dream Car competition in 2019, earning a Bentley Continental in the process, as well as a week-long trip to New York in the Lifestyle contest.

After recovering from his initial shock, Darren, who lives in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, said: “I can’t believe it, I am so sorry to everyone who plays because I’ve been so lucky.

“I love playing BOTB because there is skill involved and a lot of fun, the National Lottery is just numbers.”

BOTB was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and it hands over the keys to two cars every week, as well as a lifestyle prize.

Contestants select which prize they would like and purchase tickets, starting from 45p, and play a Spot the Ball game in both the Dream Car and Midweek competitions, while the Lifestyle competition comes with a question you need to answer to enter a draw.

The competitions are independently judged by former professional footballers, alongside current and former referees.

Darren spent just 60p on his winning ticket for the Range Rover, and despite his previous wins he has not let the prizes change him.

When he won his Bentley in 2019, he celebrated by going to his local supermarket and buying a sparkly Christmas jumper, and now he has his sights firmly set on a fourth win, with eyes on a Lamborghini.

This third victory made him just the second contestant in BOTB history to win all three competitions, and he is determined to be in a field of his own by becoming the only person to win four times.

BOTB presenter Christian Williams, who surprised Darren with the news of his Range Rover win, said: “Darren really is a BOTB history maker, I can’t believe he’s done the hat trick – what an amazing story!”

TESTIMONIAL

Been playing a couple of years and have been very lucky and grateful to have won the Bentley Continental GT W12 back in Dec 2019. Amazingly, I ended up finding myself very lucky again, winning the Lifestyle competition two years later - a £10,000 holiday to New York. It sounds insane and the odds are rare, however I then won again in the final competition BOTB do to complete the treble! This was for a Range Rover Evoque and £20k cash in Jan 2022. Never had a brand-new car from the factory and always wanted to go to New York - I’ve now ticked both off the bucket list. BOTB are real - don’t ever think otherwise!! They are legends and have changed my world. I love playing BOTB as it’s Spot the Ball which is skill and way better than the others with number generators. Keep smashing it BOTB!
