Everybody loves a winner, right? (Okay, apart from Charlie Sheen...) Everybody likes that feeling of getting something for minimal effort or cost, but how often does that happen?

At yipiii.co.uk, it could be a lot more often. This is a unique twist on online shopping, as they introduce a gaming element. It’s the product of years of research and testing to get the balance between gambling and shopping just right.

You are, after all, staking some money if you take part here, but even if you don’t win what you’re aiming for, you’ll probably end up getting more back than you put up.

It’s like this: you go online shopping, then launch the web app from here. You play games, costing a quid a pop and if you lose, that pound goes towards your refund pot. Clock up a decent refund pot and that works out as your discount if you buy the product you were trying to win. On the other hand, if you win, you win. It’s that simple.

This could be a great way to get hold of some of those slightly more unattainable Christmas presents, or maybe just a great way to treat yourself.
