Travel competition: win a trip to Cape Town or Rio de Janeiro!

Let’s face it we all find winter a bit of drag, those woefully short days and awfully long dark evenings can really take its toll. Well now the folks at Lottoland are offering a solution to all that misery, they’ve organised a fantastic prize draw to offer one lucky reader a chance to swap cold, grey days for endless sunshine in an exotic destination such as Cape Town or Rio de Janerio in their Passport to Paradise Holiday prize draw (and if those don’t take your fancy there are also plenty of great destination alternatives such as Orlando, Cancun, New York, Dublin, Paris, Barcelona or Rome)…

How to enter the competition

We can’t think of a better way to inject a bit of excitement into one of the most boring times of the year. If you agree then here’s how to enter…

  • Head over to the Passport to Paradise competition page
  • Click the green “Opt-in” button on the Passport page and then register for an account (and be verified which just takes a few minutes).
  • Go back to the Passport to Paradise competition page to select the ‘boarding pass’ for either Mega Sena/Rio or SA Lotto/Capetown.
  • When you’ve selected the lottery of your choice then go to the Cart page where you’ll need to enter either the GRASS promo code to gain a free entry into a holiday prize draw for the Rio de Janeiro trip or HOPPER for a free entry into the prize draw for the Capetown trip. The promo codes can be found beside the little gift icon.

They will be entered for the next lotto bet and the corresponding holiday prize draw which will take place on Wednesday, December 4th.

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a special fondness for Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up visits to over 40 countries. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Nordic noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my favourite places; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.

    This feels amazing. I would really love to go to Rio-de-Janeiro. I wish I could enter the competition but it is just open for British residents. I think I should start saving money
