Holiday Hi Lo Rules 2013
“WCCO Radio Holiday Hi Lo” Promotion
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE ENTRANT’S CHANCE OF WINNING.
1. HOW TO ENTER
- a. These rules govern the “WCCO Radio Holiday Hi Lo” promotion (the “Promotion”), which is being conducted by WCCO-AM (the “Station”). The Promotion begins on December 4, 2013 and ends on December 20, 2013, or when an entrant guesses the exact value of the Prize Package correctly, whichever occurs first (the “Promotion Dates”).
- b. To participate in the Promotion, entrant may enter by phone beginning on December 4, 2013 at 6:00am Central Time (“CT”) and ending on December 20, 2013 at 7:00pm CT, or when an entrant guesses the exact value of the Prize Package correctly, whichever occurs first (the “Entry Period”) as follows:
To enter on-air, listen to the Station each weekday beginning on December 4, 2013 and ending on December 20, 2013 between the hours of 6:00am CT and 9:00pm CT for the announcement of the cue to call. Upon hearing the cue to call, the twelfth (12th) caller (as announced by the on-air personality prior to the cue to call) to get through to the Station contest line at 651-989-9226will have the opportunity to play the Holiday Hi Lo game. Callers will be asked to guess the exact value (to the nearest penny) of the Holiday Hi Lo Prize package (“Prize Package”).The exact value of the Prize Package shall be determined by the Station and the suggested retail value of all items in the Prize Package. The value of the Prize Package will be between five hundred dollars ($500) and fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000). The designated callers will each be asked to guess the exact amount of the Prize Package in U.S. Dollars to the nearest penny. If a designated caller guesses the amount of the Prize Package correctly, the designated caller will win the Prize Package, pending verification of eligibility, and the contest will end. If a designated caller guesses incorrectly, the caller will be told on-air whether the guess is too high or too low and Prize Package amount will remain in place until it is correctly guessed by a future designated caller. Listeners may be able to better guess the value of the Prize Package by listening to the previous guesses for that Prize Package. At the time of entrant’s call, entrant will be required to provide all information requested including entrant’s full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth in order to be eligible to win. P.O. Boxes are not permitted. In the event that the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible, the next eligible caller who successfully makes it through on the call-in line and completes the call will have the opportunity to play the Holiday Hi Lo game. There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may only play the Holiday Hi Lo game once within 24 hours.
- c. In the event of no entrants guessing the correct number by 7:00pm CT on December 20, 2013, the entrant with the guess closest to the exact value without going over will be declared the winner. In the event of a tie on the closest guess, all contestants involved in the tie will be entered into a Station-conducted random drawing to determine the winner of the Promotion.
- d. The cue to call will be announced six (6) times per day between 6:00am CT and 9:00pm CT from December 4, 2013 to December 6, 2013; five (5) times per day from December 9, 2013 to December 13, 2014 between 6:00am CT and 9:00pm CT; and four (4) times per day from December 16, 2013 to December 20, 2013 between 6:00am CT and 9:00pm CT.
- e. There will be one (1) winner selected in the Promotion.
- f. Due to delays in the online streaming of the Station’s broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests. Entrants are encouraged to listen to the Station on-air. The Station is not responsible for online streaming delays.
