Radio Station Comps - What happens if you enter twice?

Apologies if this question gets asked a lot. I think I accidentally entered a Heart radio station competition twice this evening. It appeared to accept my entry both times but now I'm concerned that it will disqualify me - does anybody know what happens in situations like this?

    The T&Cs of the particular competition should say but the extra entry will probably not count

    Entry is restricted to one entry per person; duplicate entries will be excluded from the Promotion.

    In general (not specifically radio comps) three things can happen and it doesn't always say which of the three will happen, and in any case they don't always follow their own rules. It becomes even more tricky when it is one entry per household rather than one per person. Sometimes they say one entry per person but actually apply one entry per email address instead.

    1. They will exclude second and subsequent entries, and only your first entry will stand a chance of winning
    2. You will be disqualified from the competition
    3. They won't bother looking for duplicate entries and all your entries stand a chance of winning.

    Thanks both! It does all seem a bit vague and confusing - I'm just going to have to try and make sure I don't do it again!

    Heart are part of Global so rule 9 of their T&Cs applies to most of their competitions which basically means duplicates are ignored (some radio competitions simply will not accept more entries than allowed)

    9. Entry is restricted to one entry per person; duplicate entries will be excluded from the Promotion.

    I normally find if i try to enter twice by mistake on heart it tells me that the e mail has already been used. So may be that you have only entered the once.
