The Word Is Out Q&A’s
How do I enter?
You can enter the competition by texting WORD to 64343. Texts cost £1 plus your standard network rate. You must have the bill payer’s permission to enter.
When do I enter?
Make sure you enter while the competition is open. It is open from Friday 14th October from 08:00, then it closes on Monday 17th October at 16:00 and reopens at 19:00, closing again the following day at 16:00, reopening at 19:00 and so on. Text lines will remain open across the weekend. If the competition runs into December competition rounds will pause between Friday 23rd December 2022 to Monday 2nd January 2023 inclusive, you will still be able to enter via the text line across this period for the next round on Tuesday 3rd January 2023.
Can I enter by calling?
No, text is the only way to enter.
Can I enter from anywhere in the UK?
Yes, you can. If you live in the Channel Islands, you shouldn’t enter as you won’t be eligible to win, due to different regulations but you will still be charged.
I missed The Word is Out audio – what was the word?
Keep listening to Nation Player Radio stations throughout the day and we will remind you of the clip and the money being played for, you can also check the Nation Player website for all the incorrect answers.
I sent a text to enter but I haven’t received a confirmation message
It could be due to insufficient funds, a Premium Rate block on your network/phone, a monthly cap that’s been exceeded, or a problem with your mobile phone network. You will need to contact your network about this.
I missed a call – was it Nation and do I still get to play?
We are not able to disclose that information. If you enter, please make sure you are available to answer your phone if safe to do so. If we do call you, we can’t guarantee how it will display on your phone.
I’ve already entered once; can I enter again?
Yes, you can enter multiple times. We would advise against excessive use of the Premium Rate text lines.
Could one person win £10,000?
Yes, the competition is an accumulator, if listeners continue to get the answers wrong on the first mystery word the money will accumulate until we reach the grand total of £10,000. Once we have a winner the next word can accumulate to a total which will be £10,000 less the amount already won. This will continue until £10,000 has been won in total. As we will always start with £500 in the prize pot, it is theoretically possible that the total winnings may reach £10,400.
