To participate in the Contest, the participant must answer his phone within 5 rings. All 5 rings will be judged based on the station’s audio recording (for the avoidance of doubt, the sound of a “ring” will count as one ring, not two). If they are unable to play for any reason, they will not be able to enter the Competition and no other entrants will be called.

The selected entrant may be required to speak to the presenter/programming crew, and the call may be recorded and broadcast on air (assuming there is no violation of these terms and conditions) .

The entrant randomly selected to play will be asked to name the prize for that contest entry period.

If they give the right price, they will win. We may ask a participant to repeat or confirm their answer.

Entrant will not win the Prize if:

not answering the phone at all; Where

not answering the phone within five rings (depending on the station’s audio); Where

give the incorrect price; Where

say nothing at all; Where

be disconnected for a reason beyond our control

All entries from the completed draw and all previous draws, where no winner has been declared, will automatically be eligible for the next draw. Entrants do not need to re-register to be eligible, but they can do so if they wish to increase their chances.

We reserve the right to guarantee a winner for a draw. This will be clearly communicated on air throughout the registration period for this draw. Where a winner is guaranteed, if the first entrant chosen to play is not declared a winner, another entrant will be drawn and invited to play. This process will continue until a winner is declared.
