No, you must activate your subscription and be on an eligible rewards level to be able to receive additional votes to vote for your favourite housemate(s).

If you have a single mobile number which is linked to multiple packages, then the highest available package is the one you will be able to vote with i.e. if you have both Compact and Premium packages, the highest package available is Premium, therefore the Premium package will be assigned votes to.

You can register each smartcard number/ package on the vote page on the Mzansi Magic vote page mzansimagic.tv/bigbrother separately with a unique mobile number, which can be verified via OTP.

If you are not receiving OTP messages, your phone number could be on DND (Do Not Disturb) list, which means you will no longer receive notification from any of your services that sends notification SMS using third-party SMS services.
