Online Competition FAQs Answered
Online Competition Frequently Asked Questions: Answered
If you’re just getting started with online competitions, it’s likely that you’ll have some questions you want answering. Perhaps you’re worried about entering competitions safely, or just want to know how to increase your chances of winning.
In this blog post, you’ll find answers to common online competition FAQs from Raffolux - the experts in online raffles.
Is it safe to enter online competitions?
In general, it is safe to enter online competitions. However, it’s important to learn more about the website before entering. For example, does the website look trustworthy? Can you find any reviews? Do they have active social media accounts?
Always make sure to do some background research before entering competitions on a website you’ve never visited before. Also give them a Google - have they had any negative press recently? You could even join social communities and check with fellow compers whether they’ve had any bad experiences with the site before.
At Raffolux, we have a 4.7 Trustpilot score based on over 2000 reviews. Read them here.
How many competitions do I need to enter to win?
This will vary depending on the type of online competition you’re entering, and whilst there’s never a guarantee of winning, normally your chances will increase the more you enter. However, some online competitions may ask you to write or create something like a video or a poem. In these cases, it’s better to enter fewer competitions with higher quality entries, such that you actually have a chance of winning. If you spend more time on the entries, then you’ll be able to make them more thorough, rather than rushing them.
How are giveaway winners chosen?
In many cases, especially with raffles, winners are chosen completely at random - as long as you’ve entered the competition correctly. Before you enter, make sure you’re actually eligible and have followed every step required to enter.

Where you have to submit a piece of content to enter, there will likely be a panel or some judges that decide who wins the competition. They will assess you based on the entry requirements, and come to a decision as to whom they want to award the prize. This is much more subjective than raffles, which is down to pure chance.
Can a charity run an online raffle?
If you’re unsure, Google “raffle laws near me” to check whether you are eligible to run a raffle. You don’t want to start running a raffle and then run into legal complications. Generally, though, this is possible for purely charitable purposes (with some restrictions in place) - just make sure to check the rules and regulations before you start.
One way to host a raffle is to partner with a company like Raffolux. We donate 10% of all our net proceeds to charity, and we have a number of charity partners
including Alzheimer’s Society, the WWF and Hospice UK.
