This is the first time that we haven't been able to track our weekly winner down! We know that his name is Ted Ferguson Jr, that he bought his tickets at Dublin airport last Friday and that he's won the amazing-sounding Ford Focus RS. We think he's an American living in Ireland and now on holiday somewhere in the world. However, despite numerous attempts to reach him by phone, text message and email, we've yet to speak! One thing's for sure − he's got a fantastic car waiting for him when he gets home − congratulations Ted…and give us a call!
Update 14th July: Ted finally called us towards the end of last week, when we were able to give him the good news that he’d won a car! To save on data charges, his phone had been switched off as he enjoyed the sunshine in southern Spain with some friends. As the pictures above show, he certainly celebrated his good fortune and is still over the moon now he’s back home in Ireland!

The winner is calculated by external auditors Wilkins Kennedy, a top 20 UK accountancy group. View confirmation letter
All of our competitions comply with UK gaming law, which requires them to be skill based.
We use 'Spot the Ball' as the basis for our skilled competitions as it is both widely recognised and easy to understand.
The panel of judges (typically experienced football referees and ex-international players) use their expertise to decide where the centre of the ball is. This produces a set of coordinates which are sent to independent auditors, Wilkins Kennedy, to calculate who the closest player is to those coordinates and therefore, who the winner is.
The lawyers are OnSide Law, a firm of solicitors based in London, UK. The competition auditors are Wilkins Kennedy, an international firm of accountants. They oversee the judging process to ensure the correct winner is chosen and the judging is undertaken in compliance with the law.
There can only be one winner. If a case arises where two or more players are equally close to the judges position in a competition, the winner will be determined by calculating the next closest entry of the players in question. The person with the closest second ticket is the outright winner. If any player in this scenario has only one ticket, all players that qualify will play in another Spot the Ball competition online to determine the outright winner. All other players in this scenario will receive £500 in cash and £500 in Game Credit. Be sure to read the full terms and conditions
