THE EDGE’S VERY MERRY JANUARY CONTEST (the “Contest”)
Official Rules and Regulations (the “Contest Rules”)
1. THE CONTEST PERIOD
The Contest entry period commences at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on January 2, 2017 and concludes at 11:00 p.m. ET on January 25, 2017 (the “Contest Period”).
The Contest is open to residents of the Province of Ontario, who are, as of the start of the Contest Period, eighteen (18) years of age or older. Employees, directors and officers of Corus Radio Company operating as CFNY-FM (the “Radio Station”) and Corus Entertainment Inc. (the “Contest Sponsors”), any affiliate (as defined in the Canada Business Corporations Act) of the Contest Sponsors (the “Affiliates”), employees, directors and officers of their respective advertising and promotional agencies, as well as those with whom any of the foregoing are domiciled (whether related or not) are not eligible to enter the Contest.
3. HOW TO ENTER AND WIN
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
Each weekday during the Contest Period at approximately 8:00 a.m. ET, 11:00 a.m. ET, 3:00 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. ET, a produced ‘cue-2-call’ will announce a Contest occasion (each, a “Contest Occasion”). Upon hearing the Contest Occasion, listeners will be invited to call 416-870-3343 (each the “Contest Line”).
The tenth (10th) caller through to the Contest Line during a Contest Occasion (each a “Contestant”) will be invited to play The Edge’s Very Merry January game as follows. The first Contestant of the day will have to identify a number between one (1) and one hundred and two (102) which the Radio Station has pre-selected at their sole discretion that day (the “Number”). If the first Contestant is able to identify the Number correctly within approximately ten (10) seconds, he/she could win Five Hundred Canadian dollars (CDN$500), subject to these Contest Rules (the “Prize”). If a Contestant does not correctly identify the Number during the allotted time, the on-air host will state that the winning number is higher or lower than the number they guessed, and the Contest Occasion will end and the Prize increases by One Hundred Canadian dollars (CDN$100) for the next scheduled Contest Occasion. The Prize will continue to increase by One Hundred Canadian dollar (CDN$100) increments for each subsequent Contest Occasion until the Number is correctly identified (carrying on to the following day, if necessary).
Once the Number is correctly identified, The Contest will resume at the next contest occasion with a new Number, a Prize value of Five hundred dollars (CDN$500.00), and the process of accumulation of One Hundred Canadian dollar (CDN$100) increments will begin again.
Streaming Listeners: Please note 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, Contest Sponsors recommend that you turn on your radio to the Radio Station to participate in any call-in contest to be sure you are participating in “real time.” Contest Sponsors assume no responsibility for entrants not making timely phone calls to the Radio Station as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.
If there is not a clear telephone connection between the Radio Station on-air announcer and a Contest entrant, such that one or each other cannot hear the other or the caller otherwise gets disconnected, such entrant may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Contest Sponsors, be disqualified, and if disqualifed will forfeit his/her entry and the Releasees (defined below) will not be liable in any way. Prior to completing the call or at any other time, as determined by the Contest Sponsors, the eligible entrant will be required to provide a representative of the Contest Sponsors with all required contact information (including, but not necessarily limited to, his/her name, telephone number and/or email address).
NOTE: During the Contest Period, listeners may try to call in as many times as they like each time a Contest Occasion is broadcast, but, once through the Contest Line, if the Contestant correctly identifies the Number and wins a cash Prize, he/she may not participate in any further Contest Occasions. The Contest Sponsors shall have the right at any time to require proof of identity and/or eligibility to participate in the Contest. Failure to provide such proof may result in disqualification. All personal and other information requested by and supplied to the Contest Sponsors for the purpose of the Contest must be truthful, complete, accurate and in no way misleading. The Contest Sponsors reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to disqualify any entrant should such an entrant at any stage supply untruthful, incomplete, inaccurate or misleading personal details and/or information.
4. THE PRIZES AND PRIZE VALUES
The total number of Prizes to be awarded during the Contest Period and the value of each Prize awarded will depend on the total number of eligible entrants who call in and are able to identify the Number during the Contest Period. The total number of Prizes to be awarded could range between zero and eighty (80). Each Prize consists of a cash prize of a minimum of Five Hundred Canadian dollars (CDN$500), as described above. The precise value of the Prize will be determined by the outcome of the game at each Contest Occasion and the cash amount accumulated.
Only one (1) Prize will be awarded per person. Once a Prize is awarded, listeners will no longer be eligible to enter the Contest for a Prize in any of the remaining Contest Occasions during the Contest Period.
5. DEADLINE FOR CLAIMING A PRIZE
The potential Prize winners will be given instructions and a deadline as to how they must claim their Prize. Potential Prize winners who fail either to claim their Prize or to inform the Contest Sponsors of their inability to claim their Prize before the deadline, as instructed, may be required to forfeit that Prize and another eligible entrant may be selected in Contest Sponsors’ sole discretion.
6. ODDS OF WINNING
Odds of winning depend on the total number of people who call the Contest Line during a Contest Occasion and the number of Contestants that successfully identify the Number during the Contest Period.
7. NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES
None of the Contest Sponsors make any representation or offer any warranty, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of any Prize or any portion thereof awarded in connection with the Contest. Prize winners understand and acknowledge that they may not seek reimbursement or pursue any legal or equitable remedy from the Contest Sponsors should a Prize fail to be fit for its purpose or is in any way unsatisfactory to a Prize winner.
