When do I enter?

Entry to the Competition will open and close as detailed in Item 4 in the Terms & Conditions below.

I have sent a text to enter but haven’t received an entry confirmation message

There could be several reasons why you haven’t received a confirmation message. This could be due to insufficient funds, a bar on your account or a network problem.

You will need to speak to your network about this.

• EE: 150

• O2: 0344 809 0202

• Three: 0333 338 1003

• Sky: 0333 7591 018

• Virgin: 0345 454 1111

I can’t find the online entry

Online entry can be found on the Terms and Conditions page within the 'Win' section of each website.

Am I’m being charged for receiving texts promoting the Competition?

No. Any texts that start with ‘FreeMsg’ are free to receive.

I want to stop receiving messages

To opt out of our free marketing messages, just text STOP to 63103, 61054, 61025 or 65115 (1 standard network rate message). For full details, please see Item 11 of the terms and conditions.

My network say I am in a subscription and I can have a refund

We do not operate a subscription service, and any charges you have received are for entering our competitions.

How much does it cost to play the Competition?

Entry via text costs £2.00 (from the UK) plus 1 standard rate message. You must have permission from the bill payer before sending. Online entry is free.

We strongly advise against excessive use. You can also ask your network to put a premium rate bar on your account, which would prevent you from entering by text.

My text message isn’t sending or is failing.

If your text message entry to us is not leaving your phone, then it hasn’t reached us and won’t be included in the Draw.

This is something that isn’t under our control, and you’ll need to contact your network in order to resolve this issue:

• EE: 150

• O2: 0344 809 0202

• Three: 0333 338 1003

• Sky: 0333 7591 018

• Virgin: 0345 454 1111

To confirm, if this is happening, you won’t have been charged.

I had a missed call, was it from the Competition?

Unfortunately we cannot disclose this information, however it is possible that the call will be from a withheld number. Before entering the Competition we would recommend ensuring that you will be able to play at the times announced on air.

I haven’t had a text – what is the Prize?

The Prize is announced on air after the start of the each Entry Period. This will then be regularly repeated until the Draw takes place.

I have previously won a prize. Am I eligible to win again?

Entrants are able to win a maximum of two prizes throughout the duration of this Competition, the Jackpot, and one Spot Prize.

However, if you have won more than £500 in any previous Bauer Media Competition over the past 6 months you are not eligible to win.
