  2. Why isn't the Prize Draw available overseas or in Northern Ireland?

    Under the Gambling Act 2005, we are permitted to offer this type of Prize Draw in England, Wales and Scotland. Different legislation applies overseas and to Northern Ireland, so unfortunately it's not possible to offer the Prize Draw outside England, Wales and Scotland.

  6. If I have several savings accounts, do I need to register each one separately?

  7. How do funds held in joint savings accounts count towards the £5,000 savings balance requirement?

    If funds are held in joint accounts, then the balance will be split equally between each account holder when calculating each account holder's qualifying balance. For example, where there are two joint account holders this will be 50%. Each account holder will need to register separately if you both want the chance to win.
