Smooth Christmas



  1. The following rules (“Specific Rules”) together with the general competition terms & conditions (which can be found at ) (the “Competition Terms and Conditions”) of Global as defined in the Competition Terms & Conditions apply to ‘SMOOTH’S CHRISTMAS CRACKERS radio competition ("the Competition") which will run from 01/12/2017 until 22/12/2017 (“the Duration”).  The "Radio Station" is The Smooth Network.
  2. Anyone who enters the Competition (an “Entrant”) will be deemed to have read and accepted these Specific Rules and the Competition Terms and Conditions and will be bound by them.

3) Details of the Competition

To enter the competition, an entrant must:

3.1 Answer the question posed by the presenter(s) on-air.

3.2 Send a text message starting with the word WIN, followed by the answer to 65588 (the “Text Message Line”). Text messages will be charged at £1.00 plus standard network rate.

3.3 The Text Message Line will open at 10:20am and close at 10:00am the following day (with the exception of weekends, where the text message lines will open at 10:20am on Friday morning, and close at 10:00am on Monday morning). If you text after the closing time you will not be entered but may still be charged. Global Radio is not responsible for any latency experienced by your mobile phone network, which may delay the delivery of your text message to us.

3.4 After the closing time, one entrant will be selected from all those received during the valid entry period. That person will be brought to air to give the answer they submitted in their text entry and the cash prize amount for that competition round will be revealed. If their answer is incorrect, another entrant will be selected at random until an entrant who entered with the correct answer is selected and a winner is decided and cash prize amount for that competition round is awarded.

3.5 All entrants selected to play may be required to talk to the presenter/s and a call may be recorded with the presenter/s and played on-air. If the caller doesn’t answer their phone, is driving at the time of the call and is unable to pull over, or cannot continue the call for any reason, the call may be terminated and another entrant selected at random. The Producer’s decision is final.

3.6 For the avoidance of doubt, each competition round is a separate round and the text system will be re-set after each round.


4) Eligibility

4.1 Entrants must be aged 18 years or over.

 You can enter each round of the Competition as many times as you like up to a maximum of £30 per round. We strongly advise against excessive use.

4.3 All competition rounds are with a cash prize, therefore entrants must have a bank account, as the prize will be paid via cheque or bank transfer.


5) Prize

5.1 The prize is made up of one cash prize per round, between £500 and £5,000, which will be revealed on-air after the closing time for each specific competition round by the presenter(s):

5.2 The prize is non-transferable.

5.3 Global Radio reserves the right to change the prize or any part of it at any time.

5.4 Whilst every effort will be made to ensure prizes are delivered in time for Christmas, there may be circumstances beyond the control of Global which mean this is not possible. In such cases, we will let winners know as soon as possible and endeavour to deliver prizes as soon as possible thereafter, within the following 28 days.

5.5 The Promoter is Global Radio
