The question of whether or not to enter the BOTB DJ competition is a good one.
Basically, while there are more focussed and specialist DJ competitions with much better odds out there, you might still have a punt.
BOTB (‘Best of the Best’ – the car competition company) also includes a Pioneer CDJ package (not yet including the Pioneer DJM-A9) in their hundreds of ‘lifestyle’ competition prize options.
The odds are significantly lower than through Storm.
BOTB run a weekly ‘lifestyle’ draw, where people can choose between approx 129* different prize options.
We estimate that with an average of at least 100 people each week entering each BOTB prize, this gives 12,900 weekly contestants.
After having DJ equipment on offer for around 4 years now (that’s approximately 208 competitions), BOTB have awarded DJ prizes just 5 times (Apr ’23).
For comparison, Storm’s number of contestants per competition is capped at 1000 and we have awarded almost £100,000 of DJ prizes.
