If you submit an incorrect answer, you will be ‘zoned out’ for one (1) second before being given another opportunity to submit a correct answer.

If you run out of time during the quiz, your quiz will be over, you will not be able to see or answer any further questions and you will not proceed to Stage 2.
Please note that if you answer quicker than an average of 400ms across two (2) or more quiz questions within the Time Limit, a reCAPTCHA will pop-up on your screen and you will have sixty (60) seconds to complete this reCAPTCHA.

Stage 2: Prize Draw
If you answer the ten (10) questions correctly within the Time Limit, you will be entered into a prize draw (“the Draw”) which will take place every day at 11.00 am on the day following the closing date and time for all entries for each Competition. Where any technical issues occur, the results of the Draw will be revealed as soon as it is technically possible.
