Who can enter the Hot Wheels The Race Is On Competition?

In order to enter the competition, you must live in the UK, and you must be aged 18 or over. You’ll also need to purchase a Hot Wheels product from a The Entertainer store during the Promotion Period. The only exception to this is for entrants who live in Northern Ireland, for whom it is possible to enter the competition without purchasing a Hot Wheels product. Please see below for details.

How do I enter the competition?

To enter, customers must purchase any Hot Wheels product from a The Entertainer store during the Promotion Period. Upon purchasing, customers will be provided with a scratch card, which contains a unique promotional code. Customers must visit hotwheelstheraceison.co.uk and enter their details, along with the unique code found on the scratch card.

How many prizes are available to win in the competition?

During the Core Promotion Period (20 May – 16 June 2021), there are a total of 64 prizes to be won. These include 1 x five-night family trip to London, 10 x one-day family attraction tickets, and 53 x Hot Wheels Robo Shark Frenzy Play Sets.

During the Extended Promotion Period (17 June – 16 September 2021), there are 7 x Hot Wheels Robo Shark Frenzy Play Sets to be won.

How many times can I enter the competition?

Whenever you make an in-store purchase at The Entertainer which contains Hot Wheels products during the Promotion Period, you will receive one scratch card. You can enter the competition once with each scratch card. Customers may enter multiple times during the Promotion Period, but must use a different scratch card code for each entry. Only one scratch card will be provided per transaction.

When will I find out whether I have won a prize?

During the Core Promotion Period (20 May – 16 June 2021), winners of family attraction tickets and Hot Wheels Play Sets will be notified instantly on screen and via email that they have won. Winners will then be contacted by email within 7 days to confirm their details.

The winner of the top prize of the five-night family trip will be selected in a final prize draw of all valid entrants from the Core Promotion Period. This prize draw will take place on 18 June 2021 via a randomised computer process, and the winner will be contacted by email within 7 days to confirm their details.

Winners of prizes during the Extended Promotion Period (17 June – 16 September 2021) will be selected in a final prize draw of all valid entrants from the Extended Promotion Period.

When does the competition close?

The Core Promotion Period ends on 16 June 2021.

However, if you buy a Hot Wheels product and receive a scratch card after that date, you can still enter to win a Hot Wheels Robo Shark Frenzy Play Set, so long as you enter before 16 September 2021.
