“SAM AND LISSA’S PIGGY BANK” Contest
Updated on March 31, 2014
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.
1. HOW TO ENTER
a. These rules govern the Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank Contest (the “Contest” or the “Promotion”) being conducted by 94.5 KBAY (the “Station”) beginning on April 7, 2014 and ending on June 27, 2014, or whenever a total of $15,000 in Promotion prize money is given away, whichever occurs first (the “Promotion Period”).
b. To participate in the Promotion, you must listen to 94.5 KBAY each weekday between the hours of 5:00 am PDT and 9:00 am PDT during the Promotion Period for the Station’s on-air cue to call. Upon hearing the cue to call, at approximately 5:00 am, 6:00 am, 7:00 am, 8:00 am, and 9:00 am, the ninth (9th) caller to get through on the Station’s contest line at 1-800-948-5229 will have the opportunity to guess the amount of money in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank. The amount will be between $1,000 and $5,000 (the Station will pre-determine the amounts prior to the cue to call announcements). After a selected caller guesses the amount of cash in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank, the Station’s on-air talent will announce whether the amount guessed is too high, too low, or correct. If the amount is not guessed correctly, no other callers will be allowed to guess the amount in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank until the Station announces another cue to call. The cue to call will be announced five (5) times per weekday between 5:00 am PST and 9:00 am PDT. If a caller correctly guesses the amount in Pope and Marla’s Money Vault, that caller will win the amount in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank, upon confirmation of eligibility.
c. After the amount in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank is guessed correctly, a new cash amount determined by the Station will be put in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank for listeners to guess. The Promotion will continue throughout the Promotion Period or until a total of $15,000 is awarded, whichever is sooner.
d. At the time of their call, callers will be required to provide all information requested including their full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers, county they reside in, and date of birth in order to be eligible to win. In the event that the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible, the next eligible caller that successfully makes it through on the call-in line (1-800-948-5229) and completes their call will be selected to guess the amount in Sam and Lissa’s Piggy Bank. There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may only win once during the Promotion. There will be a total of $15,000 being awarded on-air during the Promotion Period. The Station is not responsible for telephone service outages, delays, busy signals, equipment malfunctions and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing his/her telephone call. Due to delays in the 94.5 KBAY online streaming of its broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests.
