KWIS CONTEST RULES
Sweepstakes consist of prizes being offered to participants selected on a random basis whereas a contest involves entrant participation and may require participants to use specific skills to solve or complete a specified objective in order to qualify for an award or submit entry material which will be judged using specific criteria. For all purposes hereinafter the term “Contest” shall collectively refer to both sweepstakes and contests.
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.
PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING.
Eligibility and minimal age requirements vary depending on the nature of the contest. Subject to the specific contest rules; in general, all contestants must be at least 21 years old to be eligible for all contests affiliated with an alcoholic beverage manufacturer or distributor; all contestants must be at least 18 years old to be eligible to participate in contests that include hotel/motel accommodations, motor vehicles, boats, and/or air travel as prizes, and unless otherwise stated in the Official Contest Rules, no one under the age of thirteen (13) will be permitted to enter any contest. KWIS Contests are open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia. If you are not a permanent resident of one of the 50 states or you are not the required age as of time of entry, you are not eligible to enter the Contest or to win a Prize.
VOID IN ANY LOCATION WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.
Do not enter any contest if you are not located in the United States at the time of entry. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period. Refer to the specific contest’s Official Contest Rules for more details and exact eligibility requirements.
CALL IN TO WIN CONTESTS
For call in to win contests, a “sounder” or cue to call will be aired randomly at various times along with a message instructing listeners to call for a chance to become a winner. Listen to the Station weekdays for the DJ to announce the cue to call in and be the designated numbered caller to the Station’s contest line. The correct caller will either automatically win the announced prize or be required to perform a task (i.e., answering a trivia question correctly), as determined by the Station and announced during the cue to call to win.
Prizes for Call In to Win or “Cue to Call” Contests conducted by the Station will vary and be announced prior to the cue-to-call in. The various prizes awarded will normally range between $10 and $200 in approximate retail value. The cue to plays announced may at times also be for a qualifying spot to participate in a Grand Prize Event or drawing. Listen to the Station for details on specific giveaways and for the times to play. The dates, times, winner selection and prizes will vary with each station giveaway, as determined by the Station and announced during the cue to call. Winner must be the designated caller to the phone number announced; the designated caller, if eligible, will be a winner. If Company determines the designated caller is not eligible, the Company may select the next consecutive eligible caller as the winner for that playtime. Listen to the participating stations for details on specific times to play.
Contests broadcast on air are typically not valid on weekends and holidays unless otherwise mentioned in the specific contest’s rules or announced on air.
Contest participants should not rely on streamed broadcasts in order to participate.
Listeners may be listening via the Station stream on the Internet: please be advised that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal, which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and the speed of your internet connection. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you turn on your radio to the Station to participate in any call-in contest to be sure you are participating in “real time.”
The Company assumes no responsibility for contestants not making timely phone calls to the station as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.
WARNING: Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the Internet, contests heard on the radio station’s Internet audio stream are slightly delayed from the time the contests heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay may last up to several minutes. This means that when the broadcast station announces the cue to call or text for a contest, listeners to the on-line audio stream will be at a greater disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on a
conventional FM radio.
