US99.5 LAST PRIZE STANDING OFFICIAL RULES
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 US99.5 Last Prize Standing promotion (the “Promotion”), which is being conducted by WUSN-FM (the “Station”). The Promotion begins on November 4, 2013 at approximately 7:10 a.m. Central Time (“CT”) and ends on November 26, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. CT. On or after 9:30 a.m. CT on November 26, 2013, a potential grand prize winner will be announced over the air. The announced potential grand prize winner will have ten (10) minutes to call back and claim their prize, or another name will be randomly selected and announced, and so forth until the potential grand prize winner calls in and claims the prize and the Promotion is concluded.
b. To enter, listen to the Station each weekday from November 4, 2013 to November 25, 2013 at the following times: 7:10 a.m. CT, 9:10 a.m. CT, 11:10 a.m. CT, 1:10 p.m. CT, 3:10 p.m. CT and 5:10 p.m. CT, and on November 26, 2013 at 7:10 a.m. CT and 9:10 a.m. CT for the announcement of the cue to call. Upon hearing the cue to call, the 19th caller to get through to the Station contest line at 312-946-4995, will win a station branded t-shirt (qualifying prize) and will qualify for a chance to win the grand prize, “The US99.5 Last Prize Standing” or $10,000, upon confirmation of eligibility. The qualifying prize winner will also get to eliminate one of the prizes on the list of ninety-nine (99) potential grand prizes found at us99.com, which shall be incorporated by reference into these Official Rules. Once a prize is eliminated from the list by a qualifying prize winner, it cannot be won. Ninety-eight (98) qualifying prize winners will be selected and ninety-eight (98) potential grand prizes will be eliminated during the on-air contesting period. If at the time of their call, a prize that has already been eliminated by a previously selected qualifying winner is picked by the caller, the eligible caller will have a chance to eliminate another prize off the list that has not been eliminated. Each eligible caller that eliminates a prize will qualify for the grand prize drawing. At the time of their call, each qualifying prize winner 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 be a winner. There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may be a qualifying prize winner only once.
c. 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.
d. One (1) potential grand prize winner will be chosen out of the ninety-eight (98) qualifying prize winners on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at approximately 9:30 a.m. CT in a random drawing of all qualifying prize winners. The Station’s morning show hosts will announce the potential grand prize winner’s name over the air. The potential grand prize winner shall have ten (10) minutes following the first announcement of their name on-air to call the station at (312) 946-4995 and claim the grand prize, or the grand prize will be forfeited. If the grand prize is forfeited, another potential grand prize winner will be randomly selected from the remaining non-winning qualifying prize winners and announced on-air, and they have ten (10) minutes to call the Station to claim the grand prize, or it will be forfeited. This process will continue until a grand prize winner is determined.
