During the each Entry Period, the prize amount of €20,000 (the “Prize”) will be announced on air.

We reserve the right to announce the Prize at any time during the Entry Period. We may also advertise the Prize on the respective radio station’s Website, social media or via an SMS marketing message or via any other medium at our absolute discretion.

After the Entry Period has closed, one entrant from all of the valid entries will be selected by automated random draw (the “Draw”) and will win the €20,000.

In order to win the comeptition, the entrant must answer a call from the promoter on Friday afternoon Septmeber 17th to their phone number.

The entrant selected may be required to talk to the presenter / programming team, and the call may be recorded and played on-air (assuming there is no breach of these terms and conditions).

The entrant will not win the Prize should they:

• fail to answer the phone at all; or

• fail to answer the phone within five rings (according to the station’s audio); or

• fail to say anything at all; or

• be disconnected for any reason beyond our control

Where there is any doubt in relation to whether or not an entrant has given the correct Prize or the Prize should be awarded, we reserve the right to defer decision making to an off-air adjudicator to check the audio recording with reference to these terms and conditions.

If the first entrant chosen to play is not declared the winner, another entrant will be drawn at random. This process will continue until a winner is declared.


Entrants can enter the Competition by sending an SMS message starting with the keyword SPIN to 57599. The message also must contain the answer to the question / test of skill asked on the radio station.

If the message does not start with the valid Keyword(s), or is not sent to the valid number, it will not be entered. Entrants will receive an automated SMS response to their SMS message confirming their entry.

Entrants are responsible for all costs associated with entering this Competition. Texts cost €2.50 (from Ireland ) + standard network rates may also apply. Entrants must have permission from the bill payer before entering the Competition.

We are not responsible for any network or technical issues an entrant may experience, such as latency of the mobile phone network, which may delay or prevent their participation or cause them to lose the Competition if on-air.

Entrants who are randomly selected will be contacted by the phone number provided with their entry. This may be live on air or off-air. Due to programming schedules, this may not be broadcast on all participating radio stations.

All callers are randomly selected in the same way and any off-air recording will only ever take place after the entries have closed. The name, hometown, photo and any video or audio recording of the winner may also be posted on the Promoter’s Websites and / or social media platforms.

By entering the Competition, the entrant is automatically consenting to being called and having their name and location announced on-air.

The Prize is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged. Payment of the Prize may take up to 28 days from the point at which the Promoter receives the correct details.

Where, it emerges after the Prize has been awarded that the entrant was in breach of these terms and conditions, we reserve the right to withdraw the Prize from that winner and they will not be entitled to any further reward or remuneration. We reserve the right to exclude individuals who breach our terms and conditions from entering our competitions.


We will sometimes (at our discretion) telephone entrants and ask them to speak on-air. They have the right to refuse. If they consent, their voice will be recorded and they consent to this recording being used on our radio broadcasts. Entrants agree that we will own this recording and that a copy of it will be stored for further exploitation, which may include promotion.

Entrants will not be put through to speak on-air if we think they are driving illegally, intoxicated, likely to swear, or otherwise offend our listeners. Whilst on air for the purposes of this competition entrants must not use foul language, swear, say or do anything defamatory or illegal or say or do anything which would damage the reputation of the Promoter, is offensive or inappropriate or which would cause us, or our listeners, harm. Failure to comply will result in disqualification, and if the entrant has won the prize, this will be forfeited.


We will only accept entries that comply with our terms and conditions and we may disqualify the entrant if we know or suspect that they have breached them. All our decisions relating to the Competition and/or awarding of prizes are final. No discussions or correspondence with entrants or any other person will be entered into about the operation of this Competition.
