HOW THE COMPETITION WORKS
If you are randomly chosen to play a competition round, a pre-recorded call between yourself and the on air presenter will be made. You will be asked to choose 3 box numbers between 1 and 90. Behind each box is 1 word. You need to find the 3 words, "Pay" "My" 'Bills" in the correct order to win the prize.
The presenter will confirm your numbers with you and when you agree to them they will be "locked in" and those will be agreed as the numbers you have chosen. You can change your mind, but only up until the moment before the presenter presses the 3 box number sequence you have agreed.
Once you have been chosen at random once you can play the competition again.
