The simple answer is: no, no, and no again! Dream Maker NI is not a scam, and we take great pride in being completely transparent and a genuinely good-natured company. We understand people’s skepticism and raised eyebrows when it comes to checking out a new competition website due to horror stories with housing competitions and other websites, but we are totally legitimate, and will always give the prizes we list away, even if we just sell a single entry! The best part is that you don’t even need to take our word for it – we run all our draws using random number established, and completely independent software. We also run our draws live on facebook meaning that whenever you buy tickets on our website you will always be able to see your tickets in the draw. We couldn’t affect the process even if we wanted to, and all of our winners are 100% legitimate.
They most definitely do! We have had hundreds of winners so far, and they were all chosen by a public, and true random mechanism provided by random.org. You can check out our winners page for a full history of all our winners, available here: All our draws are done live on facebook using random.org. You will be able to see your ticket numbers in the draw each time!
Every time you make purchase a ticket or enter a competition on our website, you will receive a confirmation email of your activity. You will also be able to check your orders through MyAccount.
The winner is selected via a true random process by random.org, an independent, third-party entity developed by Dr Mads Haahr of Trinity College Dublin. Most ‘random’ processes used in computer programs are actually pseudo random, which means that they are generated in a predictable fashion using a mathematical formula. This is fine for many purposes, but for drawing a competition, we want it to be completely random, which is why we use random.org – which uses atmospheric noise to select a truly random number.
Dream Maker NI could not, does not, and will never have any access or control over the outcome of the draw. The entire draw process is performed externally by random.org, and the results of each draw are shown live on our facebook page for the public to see as its drawn meaning that we couldn’t affect the process even if we wanted to (which we definitely don’t!).
We are a good-natured company and will never ask anyone to participate in any unreasonable publicity requests. You are absolutely entitled not to participate in anything that you are not comfortable with – the only things we always need are a winner photo, and permission to place this photo on our website.
