Simon McCabe only buys tickets for one car − Aston Martin. The model changes from time to time, but more often that not it's the V8 Vantage that he dreams of winning. Simon has been playing for a few years and his persistence paid off this week as he's finally won it! Unfortunately Simon is currently on a business trip to China, so we weren't able to deliver the good news in person. However, we did manage to speak to him from the Aston Martin Mayfair showroom just before he started an important dinner with his Chinese clients. Luckily for Simon, he'd also added the '+£10,000' to his basket, so we're sure he'll be enjoying some champagne and fine wine alongside his main course − congratulations Simon!
Update 15th July: Simon flew back into the UK early this morning and after a quick change of clothes, headed down to the Aston dealer to meet Will in person and cast his eyes on his new pride and joy. It’s a long flight back from China, but the hours passed quickly for Simon as he decided on his spec, colour and first drive!

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 Dream Car Credit. Be sure to read the full terms and conditions
