There is a free comp on DCG
Bit weird, forces you through payment even though it is free. Might be why there are still loads of tickets left!

Thank you always like a free entry, I've just bought a few tickets for the VW Beetle (Dino) looks gorgeous.

I think the biggest known free entry win was an Escort Cosworth on Silverstone Competitions (the site is correct, not 100% sure on the car!) Sites tend not to shout about the free option, but I know Rev Comps have mentioned free entry wins on the live draws before.

Either way, if your entry gets processed you get a ticket number exactly the same as if you'd paid online, so unless there is a very complex system of fraud going on, involving excluding specific ball/ticket numbers, you have exactly the same chance as a single paid ticket.

Thanks for that. Heck of a win on a free entry.

I'm pretty sure a recent DCG win of a X3 and GTR was from a free entry.

I haven't stopped buying tickets completely, but I don't watch/comment on the facebook draws anymore. I'm getting my self-respect back!

For those who weren't aware, DCG are moving from their comments draw to a weekly free competition (1 entry per account) It runs every Friday to Friday.

Must admit i've stopped playing these now. I was doing DCG every couple of weeks, but I just have lost interest.

I've not bought many DGC tickets but as I don't do FaceBook I can't participate in winning a prize for commenting.

As the Cadillac Allante has been discussed in PH threads before, the bodies were built by Pininfarina and air freighted to the US, and the article mentions gambling and promotional marketing I thought some may find that article of interest:

I hope I live long enough to see two things in my lifetime:

1. The end of the DFS sale

2. DCG offering a stock/standard car, that is one without coilovers / lowering springs / spacers.

Isn't that DCG's USP, so to speak?

As far as I can tell, modified / tuned cars is their thing.

7Days were always the ones you could rely on for heavily modified, DCG have certainly gone that way too now. Presumably much cheaper stock for them and bigger profit margins, to be fair they're all probably going to need it to whether the incoming storm.

Rev Comps are good for standard stuff, always have a daily and a cheap punt on each week.
