How to enter the Doritos competition
- Buy a promotional PS5 pack of Doritos – keep your packaging and receipt, as these may be required to validate a win!
- Open the packet, and find your unique code inside – this isn’t easy! (see photo below)
- Go to www.doritos.co.uk/PlayStation5 and enter your details and your unique code
- You’ll find out instantly if you’ve won a prize – if you do, you’ll also receive a confirmation email with details on how to claim it.
- If you don’t win, you’ll either be entered into a prize draw, or the Quest promotion (read on for more details on these)
Tip: you need to open the bags to find your code, but if you don’t want to scoff all the crisps right away, use a heat sealer gadget (affiliate link) to reseal the packets!
Where is the code on the Doritos packet?
The unique code is faintly printed inside the packet, on the back seam – you’ll need to look carefully in the light to read it!
Tip: try using a pencil to scribble over the code – it should make it clearer to read!
Why doesn’t my Doritos code work?
The letters in your unique code must be typed as capitals. The website display is misleading as it shows the code in all caps, but if you’ve typed a letter as lower case it won’t accept the code.
In addition to the instant win element, there’s also three prize draws:
- Draw 1: winners chosen from all losing instant win entries between 29 September and 1 November 2020
- Draw 2: winners chosen from all losing instant win entries between 30 November and 31 December 2020
- Draw 3 (late entry wrap up draw): winners chosen from all entries between 1 January 2021 and 31 March 2021
How to play the Dortitos Quest
The Quest is an AR (augmented reality) game – you’ll be able to play it if you go to http://doritos-quest.com/playstation5 between 2 November until 29 November 2020. It’s only open to the first 102,000 participants who have created a Vatom wallet (in ROI it’s the first 5,000 participants). No Doritos code is required to play the Quest!
- Register at http://doritos-quest.com/playstation5, and create a Vatom wallet.
- Every day you can ‘drop a pin’ on a map, which will drop two Vatoms (Doritos bags) on the map near you. You may be able to tap to collect these, or you may need to walk closer to get them! You may also see other Vatoms that have been dropped. There’s an option to Grab in AR, but this doesn’t work for everyone so it’s easier just to tap on the map.
- When you tap a Doritos bag Vatom it will either be a prize, or a PlayStation® shape, and will be added to your Vatom wallet
- You can collect up to five Vatoms each day
- The first 12 participants that collect all four PlayStation® shapes will instantly win a PlayStation®5 Console!
The Quest does seem to be a little glitchy – you might have a Doritos packet flash up briefly on your screen after tapping the map, suggesting you’ve won a voucher, but actually it’s just a system lag and unfortunately just another shape for your wallet.
- You can enter the Doritos PS5 competition a maximum of 5 times per day.
- You can only win one PlayStation® console and one other prize type per household.
- The promotion is open to residents of the UK and ROI aged 18 and over.
- There’s a no purchase necessary entry route for residents of Northern Ireland: send a stamped postcard or letter with your full name, email address and postal address to JS10959 Doritos PlayStation, PO Box 704, Pinner, HA5 9PF – you will be emailed a code to use.
- Prizes should be received within 28 days of winner notification
This promotion is pretty complex, so you might want to check out the T&Cs on the main competition site at www.doritos.co.uk/playstation5!
Good luck, and please let me know in the comments if you win!
