An entry mechanism has been set-up on behalf of M-Net by WeChat, a division of Multichoice (Pty) Ltd to enable viewers to send in their bills for the Pay That Bill competition. Viewers are encouraged to submit theirs bills for random selection.

All valid entries will automatically be entered into a draw each week. If your bill is picked by the random selector, R1000 will be paid to your WeChat wallet.

You may submit your bill via the WeChat service only. This will happen via the WeChat application on your mobile phone, and the data costs of your Internet Service Provider will apply. Please ask permission from the bill payer prior to submission. No refunds will be offered at any time.

Viewer submissions starts immediately after the end of the show on 3 January. For subsequent submission periods the lines open Saturdays after the show. Submissions will close every Monday morning at 7am. Submissions made or received outside of these times will not be counted since they would be received after the relevant submission period closes. Only one submission per person will be allowed per week.

Electronic Media Network Proprietary Limited (“M-Net”) reserves the right to change the submission rules at any time, and may suspend, withdraw or re-set submission at its sole discretion. Where M-Net does change the submission rules, this will be advertised on the relevant M-Net Channel. The information will also be published on the Mzansi Magic website.

M-Net reserves the right to disqualify submissions if it has reasonable grounds to suspect that fraudulent submission has occurred or if it considers that there has been any attempt to manipulate the submission fraudulently. Viewers will be limited to 1 submission per submission period via the WeChat application. Submissions in excess of 1 per period will not be counted and will not be eligible to be selected.

After the lines have closed, the result will be established from all valid submissions received.
