    Bauer (Radio) Daily competitions - time ring

    Bauer (Radio) Daily competitions - time ring 17th Jul 19 at 7:54 AM
    Ok. I know that for Hits Radio's cash register they ring about 3:15pm and Magic radio ring after 4pm but what about the other daily Bauer competitions? Like Planet Rock and Greatest Hits Radio.
    Do they ring the same time as the other two?
    I mean I'd hate to get a call from Planet Rock saying I'd won 1000 while missing a call from Magic Radio saying I'd missed out on 12,000

    According to OP's Planet Rock Legends closes at 5pm so no problem

    but

    Greatest Hits closes at 3pm

    so

    Hits Radio and Greatest Hits may phone you at the same time

    Not sure where 3.15 for hits has come from, it is played at 3.25 so I’m pretty sure it would be much closer to 3 that they call, like maybe 3.05. I actually seen someone saying it was about 3.05 on another forum, whose friend won / got the call.
    Magic i have seen ring about 4.25pm
    Someone once missed a call from planet rock at 5.08pm

    Not sure re greatest hits

    I won the Hits Cash Register earlier in the year, Debbie Mac called at around 15:05 and the edited version was transmitted around 15:30

    I'm glad it's not just me who finds themselves forgetting the answer by the time it comes close to the ringing. I've only been entering since Monday and so far I've always been out of the house when it's been time for the calls. My "system" so far has been to write the answers onto my wrist but I'm definitely looking for a more organised option

    Even worse than missing it would be to get a call to win a 1,000 then get a call to win 40,000 but not allowed the 40,000 win as you had already won a prize worth 500 or more from them.

    This is why I'm happy the biggest amount is the first competition.
    I mean winning 40,000 at 3:30pm then declining a call at 5pm to win 2000 isn't that bad (oh how I wish )
