Prize Game Subscription Service Rules and Regulations

You can contact Spot4Fun Limited any time on 019038309 or if you prefer by sending an email to [email protected]
Our service is charged at €10.00 (€2.5 x 4 OR €2 x 5) per week and offers you the chance to win a prize for every quarter you play. If you are a Post-pay or contract mobile phone user you will be charged for your entry to your mobile telephone bill, otherwise if you are a pay-as-you-go customer your entry will reduce your credit by the equivalent value. Once you have joined the Spot4Fun service you can stop any time you wish quickly and easily by texting the word STOP to 57977 or 57721. This will terminate the service on receipt and end your chance to win the Prize-draw competition. Only active participants can be declared the winner of the prize-draw.
To join the service you must pay the first weekly charge. Each week you will be presented with a quiz question either by SMS (text message) or via a link to our online Question Portal, and to be entered into the Prize-draw you must both provide the correct answer to the quiz question and successfully pay that week’s entry fee. The prize you have the chance of winning is clearly advertised on this site and will be confirmed in an SMS.
A prize-winner is selected at each quarter using random selection process incorporating a sophisticated computer algorithm with no human intervention. This algorithm is a program that independently pools all eligible participants and selects a mobile number. The chosen mobile number is declared the winner and contacted by our customer care team to arrange prize delivery. If as a prize-winners you have a choice of prizes or prize attributes (e.g. colour options) you will be asked to make these choices as part of the winners notification and fulfillments process.
Each prize-draw commences on Friday at exactly midnight (00:00:00) and ends the following Thursday at exactly one second before midnight (23:59:59). This period of time is the prize-draw period and will automatically reset each week after the draw is made.
As a participant, you may join other Spot4Fun prize-draw services provided by Methilonia Limited. Each Spot4Fun competition is combined into a single prize-draw and prize-winners are awarded all prize(s) for the competitions they have entered. A competition entry is a virtual ticket, and if you enter multiple competitions you will have multiple tickets in the prize draw each week.
