Competition Rules

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

OFM competitions are open to all South Africans, 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 given in text or voicenote) 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 on-air game to win, another contestant will be drawn after failure to get 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.

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.

Prizes not collected/claimed within 6 months of being won will be disposed of at OFM's discretion.

By entering OFM competitions, entrants agree to adhere to competition rules and regulations, details of which entrants declare themselves conversant with.

Any violation or attempt to violate any of the above rules will result in the immediate disqualification of the transgressor.

OFM may disqualify a transgressor for entry into any other OFM competitions, for a period deemed appropriate by OFM Management.

OFM and the prize sponsors reserve the right to cancel the competition at any time, if deemed necessary in their opinion, and if circumstances arise outside of their control and shall not be liable in anyway whatsoever to entrants in such event for any cause or action whatsoever.

Winners may be required to have their details disclosed and appear on radio, television, the Internet or in printed publications.

OFM reserves the right to alter rules or prizes at their own discretion.

Such altered rules and prizes shall become effective immediately after being altered or on such date as may be determined by OFM.

No entrant shall have any recourse against OFM as a result of the alterations of the rules or prizes.

OFM will make every reasonable effort to deliver the prize described in the promotion''''s publicity, but cannot accept responsibility if the prize differs in whole of part from that advertised.

Similarly, prize values quoted may differ from the actual value of the prize.

The announcement of a winner on air or on does not constitute a ruling by station management that the winner has complied with the rules above.

OFM may disqualify the entrant after the announcement should any rule transgressions be discovered.

Please allow 6 weeks for delivery of prizes.
