Jane McArdle received a surprise video call from BOTB presenter Christian Williams telling her she was a Midweek Lifestyle Competition winner on the very first time of entering.
The gaming bundle, which is worth £5,382, includes a brand new PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and enormous flatscreen TV.
But the surprise didn’t end there as Willliams went on to reveal to a delighted and speechless Jane that she had also won a £10,000 cash prize.
Williams said: “A massive congratulations to Jane on winning this amazing prize on the first time of entering the competition. She was clearly in disbelief.
“There is so much to choose from in the gaming bundle and I’m sure the cash price will also come in very handy. No wonder her dad, who was in the background, said lunch was on her.”
BOTB hands over the keys to a stunning dream car each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Winners have bagged Rolex watches, holidays and motorbikes in recent months.
A Banbury man won an £80,000 car and £20,000 in cash in February 2020, as reported in the Banbury Guardian. To see Jane McArdle’s reaction alongside a host of other lucky winners, scroll down this page of 2023 winners.
The company has given away more than £53m-worth of cars so far. BOTB first opened at Heathrow Airport in 1999, with Daveeda Shaheen scooping the first prize. It clocked up its 500th winner in 2019 and many winners continue to play, convinced they have the Midas touch.
- Based in Fulham, BOTB has had winners all across the globe with many different reactions, the best of which probably came from Adel Mbarki and can still be seen online at www.botb.com.
- The company uses former professional footballers to judge the main competition independently each week, alongside current and former referees.
- The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999. Hindmarch grew up in a house where cars ruled the roost. Indeed, legend has it that his father splashed out on a car ahead of a staircase in their first home.
