Hi-Lo Official Contest Rules

98.5 KVOO HI-LO SWEEPSTAKES 2017 - OFFICIAL RULES

1. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.  

2. Eligibility. The KVOO Hi-Lo Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is open to residents of Oklahoma who are, at the time of entry, legal U.S. residents, 18 years or older, and in possession of a valid government-issued photo identification. Employees of Scripps Media, Inc. d/b/a KVOO (“Sponsor”), and of its affiliated companies and subsidiaries, and of any advertising or promotional agencies or other vendors providing services in connection with this Sweepstakes and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term “family members” includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live. If you have won a prize from Sponsor in the 30 days prior to the start date of the Sweepstakes, you are not eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes. Eligibility decisions will be made by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Void where prohibited and outside Oklahoma.

3. How To Enter. The Sweepstakes will begin at 8:13 a.m. (CT) on Monday, Sept. 11, 2017 and end when  grand prize is won. To enter, listen to KVOO’s radio broadcast at  8:13 a.m., 9:13 a.m 10:13a.m., 11:13a.m, 12:13p.m., 1:13p.m., 2:13.m., and 4:13 p.m. (CT) each weekday during the Sweepstakes Period. At or about those times every weekday, Sponsor will announce the designated caller number. When you hear the announcement, call Sponsor at 918-460-9898 (the “Sweepstakes Line”) to try to be the designated caller (the “Caller”). There will be a designated amount of cash between $1,000 and $5,000 in the KVOO Hi-Lo Jackpot (the “Jackpot”), and the Caller will have one chance to guess the amount of cash in the Jackpot. The KVOO on-air staff will announce if the guess is too high, too low or the correct amount. Each qualifier will be invited to attend a VIP Second Chance Party at a TBD Location at a TBD Time, where they will be entered to win a trip for 2 to Nashville for a New Year’s Eve Getaway- airfare and hotel included. If the guess is incorrect the Sweepstakes will continue. The Caller may continue to participate in the Sweepstakes during subsequent call-in periods- but will only be entered into the Second Chance drawing for the trip to Nashville one time.

Telephone calls will be taken by station operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Sweepstakes announcement to determine the Caller.

For those viewing/listening to the station stream on the Internet or other non-broadcast means: Please be advised that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the broadcast signal, which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and your dial-up connection. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you turn on your radio to the station to participate in this or any other call-in promotion to be sure you are participating in “real time.”  The station assumes no responsibility for callers not making timely phone calls to the station as a result of the delays in the method of listening. In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line because of malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. If there is an interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the Caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity.

4. Winner Selection. 

The Caller who guesses the exact amount of the Jackpot (to the penny) will be named the grand prize winner. Potential prize winner will be notified at the time of their call that he or she is a potential winner. Potential winner may be required to present a valid government-issued ID, and/or complete an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability and publicity release, which must be signed, notarized and returned within 72 hours of the time Sponsor sends such document to winner. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF THE PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY. If potential winner: (a) is not in compliance with these Official Rules, (b) does not meet the eligibility requirements, (d) declines the prize, or (d) does not sign and return required documents or provide required identification by deadlines established by Sponsor, he or she will be disqualified.

5. Grand Prize. There is one grand prize. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the winning Caller will win the amount of the Jackpot, which will be an amount between $1000 and $5,000 as determined by Sponsor

Prize is non-assignable and nontransferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions allowed by winner. Prize and individual components of prize package are subject to availability. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize or component of prize package with a prize or component of equal or greater value. Winner may be required to provide his/her valid Social Security number to Sponsor for tax purposes and/or complete an IRS W-9 form in order to claim a prize. Winner is solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes on prize value and, as applicable, will be issued an IRS Form 1099 based on the prize value determined by Sponsor.
