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.

By entering OFM’s competitions, interacting on OFM’s digital platforms via SMS, Telegram, email, social media and the website, persons consent to the personal information they provided to be securely shared with relevant staff in order to execute the competition and award prize.

Specific opt ins to authorise sharing of information with third parties as well as the purposes will be explicitly made available on forms.

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.

In addition, OFM, AME, and Central Media Group and the prize sponsors (and/or their respective agencies) will not be held liable for entries not received for any reason whatsoever and will not be responsible for network connectivity, delivery of communications, or hardware issues experienced while participating.

By participating in the promotion, the winner(s) agree(s) to have the winner(s) name, voice and likeness used in any advertising or broadcasting material relating to the promotion without additional financial or other compensation.

If for any reason this promotion cannot be executed as planned, including, but not limited to, as a result of infection by computer virus, tampering, unauthorised intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of the station that corrupt or affect the security, administration, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the promotion, or if the promotion is compromised or becomes technically corrupted in any way, electronically or otherwise, the station reserves the right to cancel, terminate or modify the promotion.

The station, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry process. Failure to comply with the rules of the promotion may result in a contestant’s disqualification and/or forfeiture of any prize or prizes. If the station makes a good faith determination that an entrant has cheated or committed fraudulent activity in connection with the promotion, the station reserves the right to disqualify that entrant from entering and/or winning future promotions and to prosecute and seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by South African law.

The station reserves the right to make changes in the rules of the promotion, including, without limitation, the substitution of a prize of equivalent value.
