Make Summer XTRA – FAQs and Rules

How much does it cost to enter?

Entries cost £2 plus your standard network rate.

How do I enter?

You can enter the competition by texting SUMMER, followed by your answer, to 61236. You can also enter online through Capital XTRA’s Win+ platform. Entry packages start from £2.

What question do I need to answer?

We’ll play you an audio clip on air made up of bits of one artist’s songs, and you’ll need to identify the artist. Make sure you only get the competition audio from listening to Capital Xtra’s live output or via Capital XTRA’s Win+ platform, not via social media or any other means.

Is it the same question the whole time?

Yes, it will be the same artist to identify, but we’ll add extra clips to the audio throughout the month.

When do I enter?

Make sure you text before the competition closes at 24th August 2022 at 5PM. If you text after that you won’t be entered but you may still be charged.

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 when the competition closes on 24th August 2022 at 5PM

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.

What can I win?

One person will win a load of great prizes. We’ll keep updating the prize list as we go through the duration of the competition, so make sure you listen to Capital Xtra to find out what the latest list of prizes is.

When are the extra prizes announced?

New prizes are added throughout the month on Capital Xtra Breakfast with Yinka & Shayna Marie, and you’ll find the most up-to-date prize list on Capital Xtra’s Win+ platform the morning of the announcements, along with the updated audio clip too.

If I’m selected as the winner, will I only win the prizes that had been revealed when I entered?

One person will win all the prizes available, as revealed near the end of the competition, regardless of when they entered

Can I enter by phonecall?

No, text and online are the only ways to enter

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:

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 tried to enter online via Win+ but my entry failed

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

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

In the last six months, if you’ve won a competition from any of Global’s brands, including via radio stations and websites – winning either a prize valued at a thousand pounds or more, or winning more than one prize of any value - your entries won’t be eligible until any exclusion period has ended.
