Frequently Asked Questions

  • We are looking for something similar to BOTB - can you help?

    Certainly. We have a turnkey solution that would be perfect for your business. Please get in touch and we will be able to show you how.

  • Does the image for the Spot the Ball game have to be football related?

    Absolutely not. You can have any image you wish. Some of the more popular ones are tennis, golf and badminton action shots! Also we can replace the "ball" icon (which shows when the user clicks to place the ball) with something more appropriate e.g. a tennis ball.

  • Where can we source the image for our Spot The Ball game?

    It is extremely difficult to get decent images to use for competitions that hold Common License. All Premier league games are off limits and so are any non league games where you will not have the rights of all people shown in the picture.

    For this reason, Tentacle Solutions exclusively contract a professional photographer who regularly hires professional players to play exclusively for our photoshoot. The players, football ground and the grounds played all sign rights over to Tentacle and their clients for exclusive access.

  • Can we update the text, images and banners on the static areas of our site?

    Absolutely, as well as having complete control over the maintenance of your prizes and games, you will also be able to update the other areas of your site via your admin portal. We will implement our CMS into key screens of your site e.g. your home page, about us etc so that you have complete control over your content.

  • We would like to discuss our project - what is the best way forward?

    Use the contact form below and let us know more about yourselves and your project. If we need more information we will contact you otherwise we will send you a detailed proposal along with links to our demo sites.

  • What happens when we want to go ahead?

    The first step will be to begin designing your complete system in the form of a Functional Document. This document will be the unique blueprint for your competition. Once approved it will ultimately act as a guide for our staff throughout the entire development cycle. Also the completed system will be tested against the specs laid out in this document.

  • What happens during development?

    Whilst our team go to work on your project, you will still play an active role in the key development areas. You will be sent a questionnaire asking for your input in all areas of the user interaction process e.g. approval for the text in the emails to be sent out to users. Once the site has been developed you will be sent a link to a secure test site.

    It is our goal is to keep you in the loop whilst we develop your system. To achieve this we send a daily email at the end of each day with the project status and programmer notes.

  • Will my competition be playable on mobiles?

    Absolutely. Our technology has been evolving for the last 10 years to incorporate the fast pace of mobile devices screens. Your site will be completely responsive i.e. will work seamlessly on mobile and tablets. Rest assure, your game will resize and ratio exactly for the screen size.

  • How fast can my competition be ready?

    Our development process will take 7 working days. However this does not include the time for design approvals. Also you will need to factor in the time it will take you to get approval from your payment processor.

  • Do you provide any support once the competition is LIVE?

    Yes we can provide a low weekly maintenance package which will help give you peace of mind. As visitors return to your site regularly, they will see the website looking fresh and inviting as we will update banners and graphics. Also if you have any tweaks needed in the development, this can be covered within the maintenance!

  • What happens when someone plays our spot the ball game?

    When your users click "proceed" their entries will be stored securely in our database. They will be immediately notified of the exact positions they have selected and also emailed this information as well.

  • How quickly will our users be allocated their credits once the pay online?

    Immediately. As soon as their payment is approved by your payment processor, our database will be updated accordingly. This means your user will see their new credits instantly.

  • How will our judges select the winning position?

    We will provide a secure special page that will contain the same game your users will have played. The judges will be able to place one entry with the ability to undo their decision. Once they click "proceed" the screen will be locked and the winning positions stored in our database. From here, our state of the art software will initiate our unique algorithm to determine the winner.

  • How much does it cost?

    We do not sell one rigid solution; instead we offer a flexible service as we believe that not all competitions are the same. Therefore our proposal will be unique to your needs and requirements. Please contact us using the form below and we will send you a detailed proposal for your competition.
