Capital! Give Me The Cash!’ – FAQs and Rules

The full rules are available here. You must be aged 18 or over to enter this competition

How much does it cost to enter?

Text entries into Capital! Give Me The Cash! cost £2 plus your standard network rate. Entry packages through Capital’s Win+ platform start from £2

How do I enter?

You can enter the competition by texting CASH, followed by your answer to the question we ask on air, to 83958. You can also enter online through Capital’s Win+ platform

Can I enter by phone?

No, text or online is the only way to enter.

When do I enter?

Listen out to Capital every day for the latest competition question or check it out on Win+. Make sure you enter while a competition round is open. If you enter at the wrong time you won’t be entered but you may still be charged. Remember, text lines and Win+ entry close when you hear us play the alarm on-air, so don’t enter after you hear that - wait until we give you the next question to answer.

Can I enter from anywhere in the UK?

You can enter the competition if you’re a resident of Great Britain (England, Scotland or Wales). If you live in Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, then we’re really sorry but you shouldn’t enter as you won’t be eligible to win, due to different regulations in those places.

Do I have to be available to answer my phone to win?

Yes, you’ll need to be available to answer your phone once we’ve played the alarm at the end of the round you entered. This can happen at any point between 8am and 4pm on every day of the week, including weekends. And the first thing you say as soon as you answer MUST be the phrase that pays: ‘Capital! Give Me The Cash!’. Otherwise you’ll forfeit your prize and the money will be added to the prize fund for the next round.

What number will you call from?

We can’t guarantee how it will display on your phone if we call you. It could be ‘unknown’, ‘withheld’, it might show a telephone number, or display in any other way. You just need to always answer your phone with ‘Capital! Give Me The Cash’ between 8am and 4pm, every day of the week, including weekends!

How much can I win?

We start off with a £5,000 prize for each round. But if the entrant we randomly select once a round has closed doesn’t answer their phone with ‘Capital! Give Me The Cash’ then we’ll add that £5,000 to the next round, and we’ll keep on adding £5,000 to the prize total each round until someone answers with that all-important phrase that pays. We’ll tell you exactly how much you can win every time we give you the entry details on-air.

Could my entry be picked at random at any point during the competition?

Your entry will only be valid for the round you enter and you have the same chance of winning whether you enter via text or online through Capital’s Win+ platform. Once the alarm plays on air, we’ll reset the lines. You’ll need to enter again if you want to be included in the next draw, once we’ve given you a new question to answer.

So if the prize rolls over, do I need to enter again?

Yes, each time we add another £5,000 to the prize and the question changes
is a ‘new round’. You will need to enter that round if you’d like to be eligible to win the prize amount available.

I have sent a text to enter but haven’t received a confirmation message.

There are many different reasons for this. It could be due to insufficient funds, a Premium Rate block, a monthly cap that’s been exceeded, or a problem with your mobile phone network. You’ll need to contact your network about this:

O2: o2.co.uk

Vodafone:Vodafone.co.uk

EE: ee.co.uk

Sky: sky.com/help/home/sky-mobile

Three: three.co.uk

Virgin: virginmedia.com/mobile

Why are my messages not sending in the first place?

If messages are not leaving your phone, then they haven’t reached us and won’t be included in the draw to win. This isn’t something we’re able to affect, so you’ll need to contact your mobile phone network (using the contact details above), and they’ll be able to advise you further.

I received my confirmation message quite a long time after I sent my text

Sometimes, when we experience a higher-than-normal volume of traffic, it can take longer than usual to process and send out our response messages, so even if you receive a confirmation message after the text lines closed, that entry was still included in the correct draw.

I’ve already entered one competition round. Can I enter another round?

Yes, you can enter different rounds of the competition. However, once you’ve won once, you can’t win again.

I tried to enter via Win+ but my entry failed

If you selected ‘pay by mobile’ there are many different reasons for this. It could be due to insufficient funds, a block, a monthly cap that’s been exceeded, a problem with your mobile phone network. You’ll need to contact your network about this. Additionally, your mobile phone network might not allow this kind of transaction – it’s only available on O2, Vodafone, EE and Three. If you entered via PayPal and your entry failed, you may have insufficient funds in your account. Contact PayPal if in doubt.

I missed a call – was it from Capital?

Unfortunately, we can’t disclose that information. Make sure that, if you enter, you’re available to safely answer your phone. Remember, it can happen at any point between 8am and 4pm every day of the week, including weekends, once the alarm has sounded on air.

I answered a call from Capital but lost out because I didn’t say the phrase that pays. Can I enter again?

Yes, as long as you don’t win you can enter again.

I was a winner on another Capital competition recently. Can I enter?

If you’ve won a prize valued at £1,000 or more or you’ve won more than one prize of any value on any of Global’s platforms within the last six months you won’t be eligible to win again until any exclusion period has ended. This exclusion period is detailed in the General Prize Promotions Terms and Conditions.

The Promotion is subject to these Specific Rules and the General Terms and Conditions which are available here (together, the ‘Promotion Terms and Conditions’).

Details of the Promotion:

4. There are two ways to enter the Promotion:

(a) Via SMS text message

(b) Online via Capital’s Win+ Platform

5) Entry via SMS

5a) To enter the Promotion by SMS text message you must text in with the answer to a question, following the presenter’s instructions on-air, as heard on FM & DAB.

5b) You must send a text message starting with the keyword CASH, followed by your answer to the question, to 83958 (the “Text Message Line”). Text messages will be charged at £2 plus one standard network rate message.

5c) On entering the Promotion by SMS text message, you will receive a text message back which confirms your entry and which invites you to take part in an offer for bonus entries, whereby if you enter the Promotion additional times within the same Promotion round, you will receive additional entries into that Promotion round at no extra cost. The details of this offer will be included in the text bounceback and a full breakdown of how these bonus entries work, as well as tariffs and costs is detailed in the table below in clause 7. The additional entries will be automatically included once you’ve submitted your paid entries and you will not need to text again to claim these. It is your responsibility to ensure that if you respond to this offer, the text lines for the promotion round are still open when you do so. The bonus entry cycle resets with each round of the Promotion.

6) Entry Online via Capital’s Win+ Platform

6a) To enter the Promotion via online entry (“Online Entry”), you must use the Win+ platform to answer the question, as heard on FM or DAB, following the instructions of the presenter(s) on-air.

6b) To do so, you must visit the ‘Capital! Give Me The Cash!’ page on Capital’s Win+ platform (www.winplus.capitalfm.com), and write your answer to the question in the relevant field.

6c) You must then complete your entry by selecting the number of entries you would like to purchase and completing the payment journey through your chosen Payment Services Provider (PSP). The cost of the entry package you select will be made clear at the point of purchase and are as listed in clause 7.

6d) You must complete your entry, including payment within the entry window of the Promotion round. Entries received before or after this time will count as having a wrong answer and will therefore not be eligible to win but may still be charged.

6e) For the avoidance of doubt entries purchased on Win+ will be entered into one round of the Promotion only, as is the case with entry by SMS text message.

7. All entry options, tariffs and costs, including bonus entries are detailed in the table below. For any SMS text message entries, you may also incur a standard network charge for each message you send to us, to check this please speak to your mobile network provider.

8. With regard to entries charged to a mobile phone (via either SMS or Direct Carrier Billing), we are not responsible for any latency experienced by your mobile phone network, which may delay the delivery of messages and/or charges to and/or from us. Furthermore, we are not responsible for erroneous entries which may occur through a mobile phone network or handset error. With regard to entries made online via Win+, we are not responsible for any issues or problems experienced by your chosen Payment Services Provider, which may delay the delivery of your entry to us.

9. The Text Message Line and Online Entry for each round of the Promotion will open as directed by the presenter(s) on air. They will close at the point that the ‘alarm’ plays on air, which can happen at any time between 8am and 4pm on any day of the week, including weekends. You must complete your entry / entries before the ‘alarm’ plays. An individual Promotion round will be open for a maximum of 72 hours.

10. Entries received before the opening time or after the closing time of the Promotion round will not be included but may still be charged.

11. Once the Text Line and Online Entry have closed, one entrant will be selected at random from all the entries received (including entries from both SMS & Online Entry) during that round. The selected entry must be eligible and have the correct answer. If you are that entrant, one of our representatives will call you on the telephone number on which you entered. If the entry is ineligible, we reserve the right to select another entrant to participate in the Promotion or withdraw the prize and select another entrant, as applicable.

12. If the selected entry belongs to you, you will be asked to have a call with a presenter(s). That call will either be broadcast live or pre-recorded for future broadcast. You must answer your telephone when we contact you. We may only call you once. Someone else cannot answer the phone, participate or accept a prize on your behalf. If: (i) you fail to answer the phone; (ii) someone else answers the phone; (iii) the call goes to voicemail; (iv) the call becomes disconnected; or (v) you are not (or do not seem to be) in a position to safely and/or lawfully take or remain on the call (for example, if you are or seem to be driving); or (vi) you are not audible or intelligible or we are not able to conduct a conversation with you in a manner that is suitable for broadcast for any reason beyond our control (including, but not limited to: low/no signal on your device, a call is dropped by any network, you are travelling, there is too much background noise or feedback, etc.); before or during the Promotion, you may be disqualified and we reserve the right to select another entrant to participate in the Promotion or withdraw the prize and select another winner, as applicable. If you have complied with all applicable terms and conditions, and if you are successful (including correctly answering any questions and/or successfully completing any tasks, as applicable), then you will be declared the winner of the Promotion round, on-air.

13. You must answer the phone with the phrase: ‘Capital! Give Me The Cash!’ (the “Winning Phrase”). For the avoidance of doubt, this must be the phrase that you say first as soon as you answer the phone. The producer’s decision is final and we will not be obliged to enter into any correspondence in the event of a dispute.

14. If you do not answer your phone, attempts to call you go to voicemail, you answer the phone without the Winning Phrase or answer with an incorrect version of the Winning Phrase, or the call is terminated as per clause 12, you will not win the prize money available in that round. Instead it will be rolled over to the next round. The total prize fund will thus increase by £5,000 each round until a randomly selected entrant answers the phone with Winning Phrase and wins the prize fund. The prize fund will then be reset to £5,000 for any Promotion round that immediately follows.

15. If a final round of the Promotion takes place on Friday 10th February 2023, the prize money for that round cannot roll over and must be won by one entrant from the pool of entries into the round. In this case, an entry will be selected at random as per clause 11. If the randomly-selected entrant does not answer their phone with the correct Winning Phrase, another entry will be selected at random. This process will continue until an entrant successfully answers their phone with the correct Winning Phrase and a winning entrant is awarded.

16. For the avoidance of doubt, if we call you, we offer no guarantee of how this will display on your phone. A handset could display a number, it could show ‘unknown’, ‘withheld’, or display in any other way.

17. At our absolute discretion, we may choose not to play every call and call attempt on air.

18. The number of rounds played each day for the Promotion will be decided by us in our sole discretion. Promotion rounds will be announced in advance by the presenter(s) on-air. We reserve the right to take the Promotion off-air for bank holidays, or at other times when programming output requires it.

19. For the avoidance of doubt, each Promotion round is separate with a different question to answer, a separate prize available, and the text system & online entry will be re-set after each round.

20. Promotion rounds may be open at any point during the Promotion’s duration (as directed by the on-air presenter) but the alarm will only ever sound to end that Promotion round between 8am and 4pm (on any day of the week, including weekends). If the alarm doesn’t play before 4pm, the round will stay open overnight until the alarm plays next.

21. We may publish and publicise your name, image, social media handle and/or profile picture, your nearest geographical location (for example, your nearest city, town or county) and your entry, and we may refer to your association with the Promotion and/or the prize, in any and all media, worldwide, in perpetuity, for publicity and PR purposes solely in connection with the Promotion.

22. In relation to winners (and runners up if applicable), you understand that we may interview you, which we may film, photograph and/or record and; (ii) film, photograph and/or record, you in connection with the Promotion either by telephone or in person and we may use such films, recordings and/or photograph(s) for publicity and PR purposes in any and all media, worldwide, as often and for as long as we consider appropriate or desirable, in connection with the Promotion.

23. By entering the Promotion you are requesting that we process your entry into the Promotion immediately. We complete the entry process immediately following receipt of your entry and therefore you acknowledge that once you enter the Promotion you will lose any right you may have to cancel your entry and receive a refund (whether under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 or otherwise).
