Liam McCann drivetime presenter (or his stand in) will contact the winner and arrange to deliver £500 in cash to the winner after 7pm on the Friday night. If the winner cannot be contacted then Central FM will keep phoning them until successful. No other entries will be chosen if the winner does not answer or call us back.
If you are the winner you will be required to talk to the presenter(s) and your call will be recorded and played on-air (assuming there is no breach by you of these terms and conditions).
Central FM will endeavour to do everything to make sure they make contact with the winner on the Friday night but if unsuccessful will leave a message if able to do so and/or continue to make calls to the winner throughout the weekend
ITEM 6: DRAW DETAILS
Each Friday commencing on 7th February a brand new Big Cash Question will commence at 6am and close at 6pm.
For the avoidance of doubt, any entries received before entries open (6am) or after they close (6pm) (as stated above) will be invalid but you may still be charged.
The winner will be chosen at random and will take place each Friday after entry to that daily competition has closed (after 6pm). Once the Entry Period has closed a random automated draw of all registered, qualifying entrants who have answered The Big Cash Question correctly will take place and the Station shall call the phone number provided by the Entrant.
ITEM 7: ENTRANT RESTRICTIONS
You can enter each daily draw a maximum of 6 times via SMS. Entrants must obtain permission from the bill payer before texting to enter the Competition. Where we operate any incentive for entrants to receive bonus entries for each SMS entry these bonus entries shall not be subject to the usual cap.

There is no limit on the value of a single prize that may be provided to the individual winner of a Competition. However, no person may win more than one prize valued at £500 or more via any of our Competitions in any six (6) month period. A winner may continue to receive SMS messages in relation to the Competition and invitations to enter the Competition. For the avoidance of doubt, a winner should not enter the Competition again if they have already won in the previous six (6) months as they are ineligible to win. If a previous winner is drawn at random in a subsequent competition they will be disqualified, and another entrant will be drawn at random. If it emerges after a winner has been awarded a Prize that they are a previous winner, in breach of these terms and conditions, they will be excluded and the Prize shall not be paid to them. If the Prize has already been paid, this must be returned immediately upon request. For clarity, it is possible to be drawn more than once if you have entered again having won in any 6 month period
ITEM 8: ROUTES OF ENTRY AND COSTS
