TERMS AND CONDITIONS for “5 Words, 5 Grand – 5 Word Friday - Absolute Radio” (the “Competition”).

These terms should be read with our general competition terms at: http://www.bauerlegal.co.uk/radio-competition-terms.html which also apply to this Competition.

1.COMPETITION MECHANIC AND HOW TO WIN The Competition is a word association game that will be taking place during the Absolute Radio breakfast show over a number of rounds on-air between Monday 1st February 2021 – Friday 30th April, 2021* (the “Competition Period”). One member of the absolute radio presenting team will play the game with a contestant while another presenter hosts the game. The contestants will be chosen at random after email entry method has closed. Over the Competition Period, Absolute Radio will give away one or a number of prizes to the value of £5000.00

At multiple times during a Competition day, one member of the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show presenting team will play the word association game (the “Game”) with a contestant while another presenter hosts the Game (the “Host”). The contestant will have been chosen at random after the email entry method have been closed.

At the start of the Game, the presenter whom the contestant will be playing against will be disconnected from the recording of the game round so they cannot hear conversation between the Host and the contestant.

The contestant will be asked, by the presenter hosting the game, to give a one-word response to each of five words which are put to them by the presenter. After the contestant has given their responses, the member of the Absolute radio presenting team who had been disconnected from the game round will be reconnected and the presenter hosting the game will ask them to respond to the same five random words in a word association game. If the presenter states the same five words in response to the five words put to them as part of the word association game, then the contestant will win the Prize as defined in these terms.

All the words for the word association game will be chosen by a member of the Absolute Radio production team, with in-play team members having no prior knowledge of the words chosen. Playing team members will have no knowledge of what has been said and they will have been disconnected during the recording of the game to eliminate any chance of them hearing the on-air output.

*The game rounds will be pre-recorded between Friday 29th January 2021 – Thursday 29th April, 2021 and entrants must be available on this date in order to play the game.
