In celebration of the release of Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, Megarom are offering up 3 copies of this Xbox 360 game to some lucky readers.

The blurb according to Megarom

“In Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements, players will be introduced to the dark and unforgiving world of Ashan, scarred by a bloody history and threatened by the apocalyptic prophecy of the Dark Messiah.”

Now this game never received the best reviews when it was released as a PC title but I am interested to see how it has managed to transform into a console title. After watching a few trailers it really does look quite interesting and well worth a look.

So how do you win a copy? Easy just SMS the name of the main character in Dark Messiah and your name to 35357 (SMS cost R3).

You can enter as many times as you like and the competition closes on the 1st of March.

    Isn’t it illegal to charge more than the standard SMS rate to enter a competition?

    [Updated by LazySAGamer]
    Just to clarify – It is not illegal to charge more for a SMS if it is a competition. It is however a requirement to display the charge as Megarom has done

  • LazySAGamer

    ? I have never heard anything like that before?

    You can’t even get one of these fancy 32??? numbers to charge a standard rate either.

    I have however asked Megarom to comment so please hold 🙂

    Just another update, according to the WASPA code of conduct (the guys who manage these premium rates) it is not illegal to charge more than the standard rate for a SMS competition

    The problem may lie in the restrictions defined in the lotteries act.

    This is the reason for the controversy around the Vodacom competition to win BMWs.

  • LazySAGamer

    Vodacom actually won that case

    And it was agreed that there was nothing wrong with premium rate comp lines.

  • papa-action

    It hasn’t won the case yet…

    “According to NLB spokesman Sershan Naidoo: “If a company is having a promotional campaign for a product, the customer should not be paying more for that product than they usually would. The NLB is the regulator for all games of chance in the country and, if Vodacom wanted to charge more than the cost of a normal SMS for people to take part in this competition, it needed a licence from the NLB.””

    “ICT lawyer Reinhardt Buys has backed the NLB, saying Vodacom is on the wrong side of the law with its BMW competition. He notes that the competition solicits customers to enter repeatedly to increase their chances of winning.”

    “Vodacom has said it is still engaging the NLB over its concerns.”

    lol well to be honest this is being blown out of proportion. According to the current WASP rules a premium (if we can call R3 a premium) rate competition is legal.

    Granted if this law is changed then people will have to stop doing it.

    But as of right now, according to the law it is legal. The vodacom case is different due to the spam nature of the invitations. I highly doubt me posting about a Megarom comp can be classed as spam 🙂
