What makes The Big Fat One different from all the other Prize Competitions out there?
Our intention is clear. We want to create as many happy winners as possible, give specific thanks to NHS staff for all their hard work over the last years while still donating part of our profits to the NHS charity. There are always 13 guaranteed winners, regardless of ticket sales, and we never plan to move our draw dates. The more entries we have, the more winners we want to generate. This competition is designed to spread the joy and spread the love!

If you get the question wrong, you will not be entered into the draw so you will not have the chance to win the prize. You will not be entitled to a refund of your entry fees. If you want to, you can try again.
Can I try again?
You can enter the competition as many times as you wish up to any limit we specify. Your entries may be restricted if we reach the maximum number of entries.
Whilst this isn’t gambling, we still urge you to keep this fun and not spend more than you can afford.
How is the winner decided?
Everyone who gets the answer to the question correct will be entered into a draw. 13 winners will then be chosen at random from all the correct entries.
