You could win the biggest payday of your life

We're giving you the chance to win £125,000!

What would you do with all that cash? Pay off a big chunk of the mortgage, retire a bit earllier, start your own business, or maybe pack up your bags and move to Spain!

On Friday 30th August at 4pm, Emma B could be calling you, with 15 sealed envelopes.

Every one of them will have thousands of pounds in, but one of them will have £125,000! Whichever one you pick, will be the prize that you win!

Get into the draw to play now! Text 'WIN' and send it to 61054 (£2+SNR) or enter online below.

Good luck!

Terms & Conditions


Competition Specific Terms and Conditions

These Competition terms and conditions should be read together with, and are in addition to, Bauer Radio Limited’s standard terms and conditions at: (the “General Terms”). Together these specific competition terms and conditions and the General Terms shall be referred to as the “Terms”. Where there is a conflict between these terms and the General Terms, these terms shall prevail.

“Magic’s £125,000 Payday” running from the Start Date to the End Date as set out below (the “Competition”).

Bauer Radio Limited (trading as “Magic”), registered office: Media House Peterborough Business Park, Lynch Wood, Peterborough, United Kingdom, PE2 6EA and registered under company number 01394141 (the “Promoter”)

This is a Magic competition running across the following stations:

a. Magic Radio

b. Magic Chilled

c. Magic Mellow

d. Magic Soul

The website shall be (the “Website”)

Start Date: Monday 19th August 2019 at 6:00am

End Date: Friday 30th August 2019 at 4:00pm

Entries to the Competition will open on Monday 19th August 2019 at 6:00am and will close at 4:00pm on Friday 30th August (the “Entry Period”)

As further described below, the Competition consists of a draw where one entrant will be selected to participate in a final game of chance (the “Final”), which will take place on Friday 16th August from 4pm onwards.

After the Entry Period has closed, one entrant from all of the valid entries will be selected by automated random draw and will be contacted by the phone number provided with their entry. This may be live on air or off-air to be played out at a later time on-air. All callers are randomly selected in the same way and any off-air recording will only ever take place after the entries have closed.

In order to play the Final, the selected entrant must be available to speak on the phone from 4pm onwards on Friday 30th August. We will attempt to call the selected entrant three times. Each attempt will consist of five rings (for the avoidance of doubt the sound of a “ring ring” shall count as one ring, not two). If the line is disconnected or the call goes through to voicemail before five rings are completed this will count as one attempt. We will not leave a voicemail message asking the entrant to ring us back.

The entrant will be asked to play the Competition as soon as they answer the phone. If they are not in a position to play for any reason, or if any fault occurs immediately prior to or during the call and it is not possible to re-establish contact with the Entrant, they will be unable to play the Competition, and another Entrant will be selected in the same way and called.

If you are selected, 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).

The selected Entrant (subject to these terms) will immediately go through to the Final.

The selected Entrant will be given the choice of 15 sealed and numbered envelopes, each containing a cash prize of at least £10,000. Within one of the envelopes will be £125,000. Once the selected Entrant has made their choice of a number between 1 and 15, that corresponding envelope will be opened and the selected Entrant will be awarded the prize contained within. If they have not chosen the envelope which contains the £125,000, an independent adjudicator will then open the envelope which contains the highest value prize to confirm its existence.

You can enter a maximum of 12 times via SMS (including free entries) and a maximum of 12 times online for free. Entrants must obtain permission from the bill payer before texting to enter the Competition.

Entrants must be available to answer the phone from 4pm on Friday 30th August to take place in the final.

The Competition is only open to people aged 18 and over who: (i) live in the United Kingdom, (ii) are not one of our employees (or living with, or related to, one of our employees) and (iii) are not one the employees of any company associated with the competition (or living with, or related to, one of the employees).

Entrants are only able to win a single prize throughout the duration of this Competition. 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, or subsequent round of the same 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.

In addition to previous winners, family relations of, or those living at the same residential address as, previous winners of this contest are ineligible to enter.

You can enter the Competition by sending an SMS message starting with the keyword WIN to 61054. If your message does not start with the valid keyword(s), or is not sent to the valid shortcode, it will not be entered in to the draw. You will receive an automated SMS response to your SMS message confirming your entry. You can also enter online below.

You are responsible for all costs associated with entering this competition. Texts cost £2.00 (from the UK) + standard network rate. You must have permission from the bill payer before sending. Online entry is free.
