The OZFM Safecracker – Official Rules and Regulations

February – March 2019

Official Rules and Regulations (the “Contest Rules”)


The Contest entry period commences at 8:00 a.m. Newfoundland Time (“NT”) on Monday, March 4, 2018 and concludes at 4:30 PM NT on Friday, April 26, 2018 (the “Contest Period”).


The Contest is open to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, who have reached the age of majority, 19 years of age in NL. Employees, directors and officers of NEWFOUNDLAND BROADCASTING, or any affiliate, and employees, the Sponsors, employees, directors and officers of their respective advertising and promotional agencies, as well as family members of any of the foregoing are not eligible to enter the contest.

Listeners who have been awarded prizing valued at less than Five Hundred Dollars ($500), shall be considered eligible for this contest notwithstanding prizes won by them within the past Thirty (30) days.



Listeners may call the OZ Line (576-6936) each time they hear the invitation to call in. Invitations to call will air at approximately 8:10 am and 4:10 pm each weekday during the contest period.

Once caller will be selected during each occasion to guess a 4 digit “combination”. Callers will be told how many digits, if any, are correct and in the right position.

Streaming Listeners: Please note that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and the speed of your internet connection. For that reason, Contest Sponsors recommend that you turn on your radio to the Radio Station to participate in any call-in contest to be sure you are participating in “real time.” Contest Sponsors assume no responsibility for entrants not qualifying timely as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.


Each contest play, OZFM will add $250 (CAD) to the prize jackpot.

If the caller correctly guesses the entire secret 4-digit code during their call, they will win the accrued cash in the jackpot.

The jackpot will then reset to $250 for the next contest play.


  1. PRIZE 

Any prize will depend on how much money has accrued in the jackpot during the contest period.





OZFM will contact winners by telephone and ask them to answer a 4 part mathematical skill testing question.  If successfully answered within 5 minutes, they will be requested to appear in person at OZFM with proof of their identity and their age. They must provide two pieces of identification which must include their full name, and the full address that they included with their entry, (eg: a valid passport and driver’s license would be acceptable). If the caller can provide this information, all the conditions are considered as met and that person will win the accrued prize money. If they cannot meet these conditions, they forfeit the prize.




Any prize money must be accepted as awarded. No portion of the prize is transferable. Should any prize winner be unable to claim the prize awarded, his or her entry will be forfeited.


  1. ODDS OF WINNINGOdds of winning depend on the total number of calls received during the Contest Period.
