(updated January 2022)
These General Contest Rules apply to contests that are sponsored and administered by Golden West Broadcasting ("Golden West") for any of its properties and related social media accounts. There may be specific contest rules associated with a particular in which case those specific contest rules will apply.
By participating or attempting to participate in a contest governed by these General Contest Rules ("Contest"), you will be deemed to have received, understood, and agreed to these General Contest Rules.
The Contest is open only to Canadian residents who have reached the age of majority as of the date of entry and who reside within the listening range of the Golden West radio station administering the Contest. To reside within the listening range of a station means that you must be able to access the station’s terrestrial broadcast without recourse to satellite radio, the Internet (including simulcasting), cable television, an application (including a web, digital or telephone application), or any other non-traditional listening device or tool. Whether or not an individual resides within the listening range of a station will be determined by Golden West. Only one winner per household per 30-days. Prize must be claimed within 30 days.
Employees, representatives and agents of Golden West and its parent companies, affiliates, and advertising and promotion agencies, as well as the immediate family members (spouse, children, parents and siblings) and those living in the same household of such employees, representatives and agents are not eligible to enter.
In certain cases, minors under the age of majority will be permitted to enter the Contest and be eligible to win the prize(s). In no case, however, will a minor be declared a winner without the prior written consent and release of liability of the minor’s parent or legal guardian.
There is no purchase necessary to enter the Contest.
Upon hearing the cue-to-call, callers being the correct caller through (i.e., the 13th caller) will be asked to answer a trivia question or perform another task as described by the on-air host. If the caller correctly answers the question or performs the task, they will be declared a potential winner. If the caller fails to answer the question correctly or to perform the task, the next caller will be given the opportunity to answer or to complete the task. If no caller has correctly answered the question or completed the task, Golden West reserves the right to modify the Contest to enable a potential winner to be determined, or to carry the prize over to a subsequent time or contest. Golden West’s online stream or mobile application stream may be a delayed stream of the radio signal and may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and the speed of your Internet connection. For that reason, it is recommended that listeners listen to any station in "real time" by turning on an actual radio.
Upon being declared a potential winner, the caller will be required to answer, unaided, a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question. Upon correctly answering that question, the potential winner will be declared the winner.
Callers shall be responsible for all long-distance charges, or any other fees associated with entering the Contest.
There is no purchase necessary to enter the Contest.
