What we are also doing is Every Caller Wins. On one particular day in October, every person who successfully makes it to air when phoning 087 087 9495 will win their share of R350 000 in cash.

Listen to what DKS had to say about it:

Darren has been stalling on when Every Caller Wins is being held. 

Out of frustration, Keri has decided to do something about it and gets a psychic to predict the date of when Every Caller Wins.

Listen to what the psychic: 

Here are some tips on how to make sure you're ready when the big day arrives:

Save this magical number on your phone: 

087 087 9495 - but only call it on the day of Every Caller Wins.

Don't answer the phone like this:

These are the best times to call:

Here's how to increase your chances of getting your call answered:

  • Don't spam the Whatsapp line
  • Call in short bursts during the day rather than all the time.
  • Don't call while they are speaking on air - It's more likely that your call will be answered during a song
  • Listen for the specific topic that we request you to call about. Don't just say 'Happy Birthday ECR'.
  • Expect that the phone will be answered. Often times people put their phones on Loudspeaker and when the producer answers there is silence.
  • Bonus tip: Do not call a day before or after Every Caller Wins asking if you won the money.

Additional Terms & Conditions:

  • Only callers who make it on air are winners – If your call is answered by a producer that does not make you a winner. Winners are only callers who are put on air to speak to the presenter.
  • All calls that are answered will be shortlisted – not all shortlisted callers make it to air, however.
  • Callers are put on air at the Producers’ discretion.
  • Criteria for being put on air:
  • Entrants in station/show competitions that were pre-selected subject to the standard competition Ts and Cs
  • Callers must clear, quality, and audible phone lines.
  • Callers that sound energized and enthusiastic.
  • The producers’ decisions are final
  • Callers will be put on air between 6 am and 7 pm on the big day
  • Only callers who are over 18 and have not won in the past 90 days qualify to enter.
