What we do

Spot the ball is a classic sporting game remembered fondly by millions. With Balls Out, we’ve made it into a prize competition that changes lives.

With Balls Out, you're in control. You choose the prizes you want to play for. You use your skill and judgement to try to win.

Here's how it works: you view our list of available prizes, each of which has a ticket associated with it. Each ticket gives you one 'shot' at picking where you think the centre of the ball is. You can buy as many tickets as you want for as many different prizes you want up to a total of 155 for any individual competition.

You then view a real football picture with the ball removed and use your skill and judgement to determine where you think the centre of the ball should be. You then place your shots on the spots that you think give you the best chance of winning.

We use our panel of expert judges to identify the winning coordinates, and whoever is closest wins the prize they played for with that shot.

We give away a prize every week, and runners up get rewards too. Read more about how to play here. You can also see our full terms and conditions here.



Spot the ball isn't new. If you're of a certain age,you probably remember it in the back of newspapers, making your Xs on the picture with a pen or pencil.

Balls Out is simply a modern version of that, except we give our players more control and more transparency. Players pick the prizes they want and at the end of each competition they can see where the winning coordinate were, who the final winner was, and who the runners up were. They can also overlay their own shots to see just how close they got.

We run a fair, honest competition and we want people to know that.

Mr Calum Farmer

Watches £46

Name: Calum Farmer

Age: 26

Location: Kent

Football team: West Ham United

Favourite player: Mark Noble  'He epitomises the club. Hard work and passion. That’s what all West Ham and football fans want from their team right? '

Favourite match:  The playoff final vs Blackpool in 2012. The occasion, scoring right at the end of the game, winning at Wembley and celebrating with all other West Ham supporters.

I love Balls Out because: 'Their website is cool and there’s loads of great prizes to win. Will definitely be playing in the future to see if I can win a car next time!'

Calum decided to make the right call and take part in our Balls Out beta test which took place this July. His shot on the competition’s spot the ball image was deemed the winner by our panel of expert judges that included Terry Butcher, Lee Hendrie and Osvaldo ‘Ossie’ Ardilles. After we revealed to him that he had won our Balls Out competition, Calum couldn’t hide his shock! He said: “Honestly, I can’t believe it! I never win these things! It feels like winning the lottery!” Between the choice of a Tag Heur watch worth £2500 and £2000 in cash, Calum opted for the money and insisted that he intends to “buy his boys a round of drinks” to celebrate!
