CONTEST RULES

(the “Official Rules”)

 The CHYM 96.7 Big Bag of Cash™ Contest

 (the “Contest”)

 

  1. Entry Period & Contest Sponsors.
  • The Contest is brought to you by the following entities (collectively or individually, the “Contest Sponsors”): Rogers Media Inc. (“Rogers”), operator of radio station CHYM 96.7 (the “Station”).

 

  • The Contest entry period (the “Entry Period”) starts at 8:10 am on February 27, 2017and continues until 5:10 pm on April 13, 2017. All times are Eastern.

 

  1. How to PARTICIPATE.
  • No purchase is necessary to enter this Contest. Entry is subject to these Official Rules, including without limitation the conditions of entry set forth below.

 

  • Listen to the Station at approximately 8:10AM, 1:10PM or 5:10PM on weekdays during the Entry Period for a cue to text.  Within two (2) minutes of any such cue to text (the “Entry Window”), send a message containing the keyword MONEY to 967967.  Such message may be sent via a cellular telephone that is capable of two-way messaging. Your carrier’s standard text message or short code message and data rates may apply.  By sending a message in accordance with the foregoing, you are immediately deemed to be a Contest entrant, and you consent to the Station putting you on-air in connection with this Contest. Where a message entry has been submitted via a cellular telephone, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the Authorized Mobile Account Holder of such cellular telephone.  “Authorized Mobile Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a cellular telephone number by a wireless carrier that is responsible for assigning cellular telephone numbers.

 

  • Following the close of each Entry Window, a Station representative will conduct a random draw at the Station offices in Kitchener, Ontario from among all eligible messages received during such Entry Window (the “Eligible Messages”).  One (1) Eligible Message will be selected at random at each such draw and the individual associated with each such selected Eligible Message will be deemed a potential Contest finalist (each, a “Potential Finalist”). Except as otherwise set forth herein, messages that are not selected in respect of a particular draw will not carry forward to any other draw or for any other purpose.  Messages that are not received by the Station will be deemed ineligible.

 

  • A representative of the Station will contact a Potential Finalist shortly after the applicable draw using the information provided in the message that the Potential Finalist sent. In the event the Station representative is unable to contact a Potential Finalist for any reason (including, without limitation, in the event the telephone line is dead when called by a Station representative, or no audible response is heard, or no one responds to the Station representative’s telephone call, or the telephone call goes to voicemail, or the Station representative receives a busy signal, or the Potential Finalist is not otherwise available as determined in the absolute discretion of the Station representative), then such Potential Finalist will be deemed to be disqualified; and, in Rogers’ sole discretion and time permitting, an alternate Potential Finalist may be randomly selected in accordance with paragraph 2(c), above, and so on and so forth, until a Potential Finalist is successfully contacted by a Station representative.

 

  • Upon contact in accordance with paragraph 2(d), above, a Potential Finalist will be deemed a finalist (“Finalist”) and invited to play the Game (defined below).  The Game may only be played on-air and failure to participate on-air will cause a Finalist to be immediately disqualified; and, in Rogers’ sole discretion and time permitting, an alternate Potential Finalist may be randomly selected in accordance with paragraph 2(c), above, and so on and so forth until a Finalist is confirmed.

 

  • In the event a Finalist is not confirmed pursuant to the process set forth in paragraphs 2(b) through 2(d), above, no Game play shall occur in respect of the applicable cue to text.

 

  • Once a Finalist is confirmed, the Finalist will have the opportunity to play the on-air Big Bag of Cashgame (the “Game”) as follows.  The Station will invite the Finalist to open a virtual bag.  The first virtual bag to be opened will contain either: (1) a monetary sum; or (2) nothing, and the sound of a buzzer will be heard.  Once the virtual bag has been opened, provided the virtual bag has not revealed the sound of a buzzer, the Finalist will be offered a choice: (i) to stop playing the Game and be eligible to win the “contents” of the opened virtual bag; or (ii) to forfeit the “contents” of the opened bag and to open another virtual bag, which other virtual bag will contain either: (1) a monetary sum; or (2) nothing, and the sound of a buzzer will be heard.  The Game will continue in the foregoing fashion until the Finalist elects to stop playing, or until the Finalist hears the sound of the buzzer.  The sound of the buzzer will mean that the Finalist has lost the Game, and the Finalist shall immediately forfeit any claim that he or she has or might have had to any virtual bag “contents” previously accumulated during the Game.  The number of virtual bags and the “contents” of each virtual bag will be pre-determined by Station management and will be kept secret from all participants, including without limitation the Finalist.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, at least once throughout the Entry Period, one (1) eligible Finalist will have the opportunity to open a virtual Game bag containing ten thousand dollars (CDN $10,000); provided, however, that such Finalist does not choose to stop playing the Game prior to such occurrence.  If there is a dispute as to whether the Finalist opened a bag or is entitled to any given prize, the decision, which will be final and not subject to appeal, will be made by Rogers in its sole discretion.

 

  • Notwithstanding paragraphs 2(b) through 2(f), above, in the unlikely event of any technical issues relating to the Station’s messaging platform (as determined by Rogers in its absolute discretion), a cue to text may be altered to a cue to call, such that the Station would prompt its listeners to call the Station, and the seventh (7th) eligible caller to reach the Station following any such cue to call prompt would be deemed a Finalist and invited to play the Game. In the event of any such cue to call, the following additional terms and conditions apply:

 

If the telephone line is dead when answered by a Station representative, or no audible response is heard, or no one responds after five seconds, the Station will answer the next call in sequence and the next call in sequence will replace that call, deeming such next caller to be the selected eligible caller, and so on and so forth.  In the event a call is cut off before all personal data is collected, the Station will use reasonable efforts to make contact with the cut-off caller, provided enough personal information was gathered in order to correctly identify the cut-off caller.  In the event two or more calls come through on the same line, all such callers will be advised to hang up and try again and the next call in sequence will replace that call.  Collect telephone calls are accepted.

 

  • The Station’s stream on the CHY 96.7 app and online stream may be a delayed stream of the Station’s radio signal and may vary depending on your device’s memory capacity and the speed of your Internet or data connection. For that reason, it is recommended that listeners listen to the Station in “real time” by turning on an actual radio.  The Releasees (defined below) assume no responsibility for entrants not sending timely messages or making timely telephone calls (as applicable) to the Station as a result of any delays in the Internet or data stream.

 

  • ENTRY LIMIT: There is a limit of one Game play per household.

 

  • Any attempt or suspected attempt to enter this Contest in a fashion not authorized by these Official Rules shall be deemed to be tampering and will void all of your entries. Entries that contain false information and/or are late, lost, stolen, falsified, illegible, damaged, misdirected, mutilated, garbled or incomplete, altered or otherwise irregular or entries that have been submitted using robotic, automated, programmed, or through illicit means, or that do not conform with or satisfy any or all of these Official Rules, as determined in the Contest Sponsors’ absolute discretion, will be judged null and void and disqualified.  Only entries received by Rogers will be considered.  Proof of entry transmission shall not constitute proof of receipt.  Rogers reserves the right to refuse any entry in its absolute discretion.

 

  • Although this Contest may be communicated, promoted, or administered by means of any third party social media or social networking service or site (each, a “Third Party Service”), entrants acknowledge that: (i) this Contest is not sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, any Third Party Service; (ii) if entry into this Contest is by means of a Third Party Service, entrants must have a valid account with the applicable Third Party Service (and may be required to have a public (i.e. non-private) account in order to participate) and must comply with the applicable Third Party Service’s terms and policies; and (iii) any questions, comments or complaints regarding this Contest should be directed to the Contest Sponsors and not to any Third Party Service. By participating in this Contest, you completely release any Third Party Service of all liability in relation to any injury, damage or loss that may occur, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from your participation.
