Spin to Win with Shell Go+
Shell’s latest promotion is Spin to Win, which runs from 6 January to 2 March 2022 and has thousands of prizes to be won instantly. You get the chance to spin to win each time you make a purchase of £20 or more at a Shell petrol station. The promotion might sound generous, but not all of the prizes are guaranteed to be won, and the chance of anyone winning one of the bigger prizes is very slim!

Note: with over 23 million prizes to be won, the chance of winning one of the 74,217 ‘real’ prizes from the first list is pretty slim!
Collect & Win Prizes
As well as your instant win prize, you’ll also get a collector piece – if you collect the other two matching pieces, you win one of these prizes:
- 70 x Forest Holidays Family Staycation
- 10 x Shell Free Fuel for a year
- 530 x John Lewis £300 gift card
- 780 x Uber Eats £200 credit
- 10 x GOPRO HERO 10
This might look like a lot of prizes but the chance of any of these Collect & Win prizes being won instantly is pretty small… However, if there are any categories where the collector prize hasn’t been won instantly, one of the prizes in each category will be awarded in a ‘wash up’ draw and all entrants that collected two out of three tiles will go into the draw to win.
This is a winning moments promotion, but it’s more complicated than most because there’s a combination of precise winning moments (when you have to enter your code during the exact 0.26182 of a second that’s assigned to that prize) and open winning moments (where the first person to enter a code after the winning moment wins the prize).
The table below, from page 27 of the epic T&Cs file, shows the breakdown of available and guaranteed prizes.
For example, all of the the Costa coffee, Shell non-fuel treat items, the GOPRO and Fuel for a year prizes are guaranteed to be won, but none of the 70 family staycations are guaranteed to be given away. This is the most complicated promotion format I’ve seen for a very long time!
