An IT project manager famous after winning tens of thousands of pounds in awards this year.
Rikki Tronson, of Borough Green, near Sevenoaks, had previously won a Range Rover Sport car before winning a luxury watch this year, and has now won a new Tesla and Â£ 20,000 in cash – all in the same competition in line.
After being surprised with a Â£ 6,700 Breitling watch two months ago, the last person Mr Tronson expected to see when he opened the door was BOTB (Best of the Best PLC) presenter Christian Williams ) with its last success on October 14.
He has now won all three BOTB run competitions, having first won the Range Rover in 2014.
Mr Tronson said: âI’m just shocked. I was upstairs getting ready for work and heard the doorbell ring.
âI really won the treble, didn’t I? “
The new Tesla Family Model Y which Mr. Tronson has won is that new orders have just opened and so, on the day his winners were announced, he was surprised by the sportier Tesla Model 3, in which he wasted no time getting in, checking out the features for himself.
“I really won the treble, didn’t I …?”
But the tech-obsessed man wasn’t the only family member thrilled with the latest victory.
Mr Tronson said, âMy son is going to be so excited.
âHe loves Tesla and points them out every time we see them on the road.
âI love technology and I design software myself, so seeing things like the built-in computer is amazing – the whole family will love it and I can’t wait for it to happen. “
As he is the first to win all three BOTB competitions, this victory brings the value of his collective prize to over Â£ 130,000.
The publicly traded company was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has so far donated more than Â£ 44million worth of cars.
It offers three weekly competitions: Dream Car Competition, Midweek Car Competition and Luxury Lifestyle Competition.
âI didn’t expect to win again. I only played it last week and had a few tries, âhe added.
âI can’t believe I won again! “
He also shared his advice with other players, saying his wins were largely down to persistence, hope and a lot of luck.
Mr. Williams of BOTB, who surprises winners every week, was delighted to share the good news with Mr. Tronson.
He said: âWe’re in our 22nd year, so we had to get to a point where we had people who won multiple awards, and it’s so exciting to see Rikki do the treble!
“I couldn’t be happier to surprise him for a third time.”
BOTB opened at Heathrow Airport in 1999, with Daveeda Shaheen winning the top prize.
He recorded his 500th winner in 2019 and many winners continue to play, convinced they have the Midas touch.
The company uses former professional footballers to judge the competition independently on a weekly basis.
For the Dream Car and Midweek Car Competition, competitors add tickets to their cart for prizes they’d like to win, play “Spot the Ball,” then checkout, according to the BOTB website.
At the end of the Dream Car and Midweek Car competitions, the same âSpot the Ballâ image that they used to choose their contact details is presented to a jury of professional sports experts.
In the presence of an independent lawyer, they mark where, in their professional opinion, the center of the ball should be. The winner is simply the person who is closest to the position being judged.
They will receive the prize corresponding to their winning ticket.
There is a limit of 75 tickets per client and per competition.
Tickets for Dream Car and Midweek Car Competition range from 45 pence to Â£ 4.80, depending on the type of car.
Tickets for the Lifestyle competition start from 25p and the competition is based on answers to qualified multiple choice questions.
