Please note that the Competition Entry Period as specified in these Competition terms and conditions are final and are not impacted by the time of broadcast of announcements advertising how to enter the Competition, which may in some circumstances be delayed.
5. Competition Details
After the start of each Entry Period, the prize amount (the “Prize”) will be announced on air. The Prize will be the winning answer and will also be the cash amount that entrants are trying to win.
We reserve the right to announce the Prize at any time during the Entry Period. We may also advertise the Prize on the respective Station’s Website, social media or via an SMS marketing message or via any other medium at our absolute discretion.
After the Entry Period has closed, one entrant from all the valid entries will be selected by automated random draw (the “Draw”).
To play the Competition, the entrant must answer their phone within five rings. The five rings will be judged according to the Station audio recording (for the avoidance of doubt the sound of a “ring ring” shall count as one ring, not two). If they are not able to play for any reason then they will be unable to play the Competition, and no other entrant will be called.
The entrant selected may be required to talk to the presenter / programming team, and the call may be recorded and played on-air (assuming there is no breach of these terms and conditions).
The entrant who is randomly selected to play will be asked to name the Prize relevant to that Entry Period of the Competition. For the avoidance of doubt, we will only accept this directly from the entrant and any attempts by a third party to name the Prize will not be accepted.
If the entrant gives the correct Prize they will win. We may ask an entrant to repeat or confirm their answer.
The entrant will not win the Prize should they: fail to answer the phone at all; or fail to answer the phone within five rings (according to the station’s audio); or give the incorrect Prize; or fail to say anything at all; or be disconnected for any reason beyond our control
Where there is any doubt in relation to whether an entrant has given the correct Prize or the Prize should be awarded, we reserve the right to defer decision making to an off-air adjudicator to check the audio recording with reference to these terms and conditions.
Where there has been a winner, a new Prize will be announced on-air, and the pool of entries will be reset for the next Entry Period. Entrants will need to enter again to be eligible to win. All previous entries will not be valid for future Draws.
Where there has not been a winner, there will be a rollover and we reserve the right to announce a new Prize for the next Draw. The Prize will not be lower than the Prize for the previous Draw. All entries from the completed Draw, and any previous Draws, where no winner was declared, will automatically be eligible for the next Draw. Entrants do not need to enter again to be eligible but are able to do so if they would like to increase their chances.
We reserve the right to guarantee a winner for a Draw. This will be clearly communicated on air throughout the Entry Period of that Draw. Where a winner is guaranteed, if the first entrant chosen to play is not declared the winner, another entrant will be drawn at random and asked to play. This process will continue until a winner is declared.
6. Routes of Entry and Costs
