Ok does this make it any more palateable to anyone so that we can sell the last tickets and get this roffle going?
Should you win, then instead of taking the car (which some may see as a poisoned chalice) there is the option (winner chooses, obviously) to take £300 as your prize
My mate has offered me £300 for the car, so I can realistically do this.
Any takers? Certainly a much better chance of winning £300 than you will ever have on the scratchcards
You've got a car you want £650 for. Or initially roffling for £649 total. Then to grease the wheels, there are multi-buy offers so worst case minimum would be £494. Now you've provisionally sold £423 of numbers, with 11 numbers still to go, have a potential minimum take of £517 or a max of £544. All that seams fair enough. Winner gets the opportunity to bottle it and take the money and the rest of the rofflees cross-subsidise your mate getting it on the cheap? Naw.
But my main point is having a lucrative escape route takes all the worry and peril out of it. Where's the fun* it? Roffles are meant to have all the entrants shitting themselves on a Wed/Sat hoping not win it.
Leave the excitement and danger in, tell your mate to cough up the money to buy it outright or buy the last 11 numbers for a chance to win.
Either way, good luck with the roffle.
