“Pot” this is the generic name given to all our competitions. There are 4 different categories of “Pot” or 4 types of competition
Free pots, Big Money Pots, Prize Pots and Daily Pots.

“Activation Level” this is the point where a Pot achieves the minimum number of Stakes required for a winner to be selected and the Jackpot to be paid.

“Jackpot” this is the prize paid out at the conclusion of any competition. The Prize will vary from category to category. The Prize will be clearly displayed in the information associated with the Pot. When the competition offers cash prizes, the jackpot will always add up to 80% of the Stakes in that Pot.

  1. To compete in the 100to1shot, contestants must first take their shot. You will have two chances to answer the question correctly. You must answer the question correctly to enter the competition.

  2. Cost of a Stake varies and is dependent on the size and type of pot. Free pots are free to enter and therefor there is no charge for a Stake in these categories. The cost of the stake will be clearly displayed in the information associated with the Pot category you are entering. At this moment Stakes cost between £2 and £250 depending on the Pot Category!

  3. The 100to1shot.com online competitions have four types of pot. Free Pots ,Big Money Pots, Prize Pots and Daily Pots.

  4. Free Pots.....this category is absolutely free to enter. Some free pots will be sponsored by 100to1shot and other free pots will have prizes donated by outside sponsors. You can win anything from small cash prizes to tickets for various events as well as gift vouchers, holidays and meals at top restaurants. There is a limit of 1 entry per person. New contestants on the site will be asked to set up a user account. All cash prizes will be paid directly into the Pay Pal account associated with that user or payment will be made by cheque at the discretion of 100to1shot. Every user will be entitled to enter any of the Free Pot competitions. Some Free Pot competitions will require you to fill out a survey or questionnaire for the sponsor of the particular prize. If the contestant enters a Free Pot where the  prize is provided by a sponsor the contestant agrees to receive marketing correspondence from that sponsor. The sponsor agrees not to pass your details on to any third parties. You can opt out of any correspondence you receive from participating sponsors once you receive their correspondence.

  5. Big Money Pots….this category has the biggest prizes in the 100to1shot Online Competitions. It costs between £5 and £250 to enter your stake into a Big Money Pot with prizes up to £10000. There are two categories of Big Money Pot. 50to1 Pots where there will never be more than 50 stakes in the Pot, and 100to1 Pots where there will never be more than 100 stakes in the Pot. Once you have taken your shot and answered the qualifying question correctly you will be asked to complete the Pay Pal transaction to purchase your Stake. The cost of this will depend on how much it cost to enter the Pot you selected. All Pots are on a countdown timer with 7 days for each competition. For any Big Money Pot to pay out, the Pot must reach its activation level. For big Money Pots this is 50% full. So once there are 50 Stakes in a 100to1 Pot that Pot will pay out as soon as the countdown timer hits Zero. The pay-out will be 80% of the total Stakes in that Pot when the timer reaches Zero. If the countdown timer reaches zero before the Pot reaches its activation level or before the Pot is 50% full 24 hours will be added to the clock every day until the activation level is reached. This ensures that there is always a worthy Jackpot for the money you staked. If the Pot achieves its maximum number of Stakes before the countdown finishes, the timer is stopped and the computer selects a winner.

  6. Prize Pots are Pots where the prize is physical. The prize can be in the form of electronic goods or holidays and gift vouchers in fact the prize can be anything except for money. The exact prize will be clearly defined in the Pot. You must take your shot and answer the multiple choice question correctly to be able to purchase a Stake to enter a Prize Pot! The cost of your Stake to enter the Prize Pot will vary from prize to prize and will depend on the value of the prize! Detailed information on each individual prize as well as the terms and conditions associated with each prize will be displayed under the Prize Pots tab on the 100to1shot.com website site http://100to1shot.com/Staticpages/PrizePots.aspx .

The Prize will be dispatched to the address on the user account, an alternative address can be used if specified by the winner.

  7. Daily Pots. This category is similar to the Big Money Pots.

When the 24 hours on the timer reaches zero we will pay out 80% of the Stakes in that Pot the clock will reset and the Pot will start again for the next day
