Laws & Regulations
We host metal detector and accessory Prize Draw competitions alongside virtual detecting games on behalf of ourselves and third parties that are free from regulation under the Gambling Act 2005.
The term 'raffle' may be used or referred to on our website, this is for marketing and SEO purposes only and due to the fact that each entrant is required to answer a question or puzzle upon entering, all competitions hosted on our platform are therefore legally considered 'Prize Competitions' and not raffles.
Although Diggers Dips is the official host of each competition, we will have an 'Official Partner' that is responsible for providing the associated prizes for the relevant competitions.
Official Partners are contractually obliged to provide the relevant prizes to the winners, whilst all related financial obligations are between Diggers Dips and the Official Partners.
In the absence of an Official Partner, Diggers Dips is responsible for providing the associated prizes for the relevant competitions.
Whilst Diggers Dips will host Prize Draws, we will also host draws for third parties, including, but not limited to recognised clubs and groups who are endeavouring to raise funds or for a recognised registered charity.
Hosts are responsible for providing the following information:
a. Selection of the prizes to win.
b. Writing the Prize Draw title.
c. Writing the full description.
d. Choosing a ticket price.
Diggers Dips commission will be deducted from the total revenue received on the completed tickets purchase.
Diggers Dips will pay to despatch the prize within 72 hours of the draw being called to the address provided by the third party, excluding draws taking place over a weekend, which we be despatched within 72 hours from the following Monday.

Postal Entries must be sent by first class stamp, and must be received by the Promoter at Diggers Dips, 61 Church Street, Tredegar, NP22 3DR before the Draw Date of the relevant Prize Draw or the point that the Prize Draw sells out - whichever comes first - in order to be entered into the Prize Draw. If a Postal Entry is received within 48 (forty-eight) hours of the earlier of the Draw Date of the relevant Prize Draw or the point that the Prize Draw sells out, then one ticket for that Postal Entry will be added to that Registered User's Diggers Dips account. The only exception to this is where the Promoter operates a Prize Draw that is less than 48 hours in total. Postal Entries are limited to one ticket entry to each Prize Draw per postcard. Postal Entries must be sent on an unenclosed postcard. Attempted Postal Entries received on anything other than a postcard will not be accepted. The Entrant must specify which Prize Draw they wish to enter. In the case of multiple entries received on a single postcard, only one ticket will be entered into the relevant Prize Draw. If the Entrant's Account cannot be identified from the details provided on the Postal Entry, then the Prize Draw-specific single ticket entry will not be processed. Postal Entries without correct and sufficient postage paid will be invalid and will not be considered. Personal and hand deliveries will not be accepted.
