Competition Rules

All OFM competitions are conducted in accordance with the provisions of Section 54 (1) of the Lotteries Amendment Act (46 of 2001) and in accordance with the Consumer Protection Act of 2008.

OFM competitions are open to all South Africans listening, or tuning in, within OFM’s broadcast area, unless otherwise stated. Competitions are not open to employees, agencies, prize sponsors or contractors of OFM, AME and Central Media Group or any person directly or indirectly involved in the organisation or running of the competition or their immediate family members.

No person may enter the same or any other competition hosted partly or in whole by OFM within sixty (60) days of winning the same or any other competition hosted partly or in whole by OFM.

This rule also extends to the immediate family or household members of the winner.

The judges' decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Please note: the procedure for getting a winner on air requires the presenter to phone a number from entries selected by our automated audited system.

Should the call not be completed due to technical difficulty or the receiver rejecting the call, another number will be selected.

Should the winner be cut while on air, the presenter will attempt three times to get the winner back on air.

If unsuccessful, and the entry qualifies for the win (for example the correct answer is given in text or voice note) the winner will be congratulated on air but notified off-air of the win at a later stage. However, should the competition mechanic require the contestant to give the answer for the first time on-air or participate in the on-air game to win, another contestant will be drawn after failure to get the contestant back on the line.

Prizes other than cash are not transferable, cannot be deferred or exchanged for cash and are not negotiable.

Entrants participating for cash prizes need to be 18 years or older.

Winners use and accept prizes at their own risk.

To enter OFM competitions, please read the entry mechanics appropriate to the competition you would like to enter and visit OFM Competitions for more information.

OFM, AME and Central Media Group and the prize sponsors (and/or their respective agencies) cannot be held responsible for any accident, injury, or loss of property experienced as a result of winning, accepting and/or utilising prizes won.
