Tired of your life? Why not raffle it off? That's what English banker Andrew Paul is doing. He decided to jettison his millionaire lifestyle after his recent divorce and he's getting creative about it. His Win A New Life website is giving away his home, car and boat in a competition that anyone can enter for £20. Up for grabs are his £1.1m five-bedroom house, a £160,000 Aston Martin DBS and his £200,000 Sealine 35 Sport motor boat. The first prize is either the property or the car plus the speedboat and £85,000 in cash to help with insurance and fees. The first prize winner can also choose opt for £1 million in cash. There are also ten runner up prizes of his and hers sets of Omega Seamaster watches.
Like our Florida couple from yesterday, Paul has a set number of tickets in mind. He's hoping for sales of 200,000 which would work out to £4 million, a pretty tidy haul even after the prizes are doled out. There will be a lower cash prize if fewer than 150,000 tickets are sold.
In order to win you need more than luck, you also need a little skill. Once you pay the fee you need to estimate where a golf ball would end up in a photograph. Winners will be determined based on who ever is closest to the actual placement. The competition is scheduled to end August 19th but could end sooner if the tickets are all sold.
