3. HOW TO ENTER
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
During the Contest Period, listen to the Radio Station’s Boom Breakfast with Dan and Bill weekdays (excluding statutory holidays) at 7:40 a.m. ET for the ”$500 Pop Quiz” cue to call (the “Cue”). Upon hearing the Cue, listeners will then be invited to call (613) 932-2577 (the “Contest Line”).
The listener that is the fifth (5th) caller through to the Contest Line (the “Contestant”) will be asked a series of five (5) skill testing questions (the “Quiz”). Each correct answer given will be worth a new cash amount as follows: One (1) question correctly answered is worth $25 CDN. Two (2) questions correctly answered is worth $50 CDN. Three (3) questions correctly answered is worth $125 CDN. Four (4) questions correctly answered is worth $250 CDN. Five (5) questions correctly answered is worth $500 CDN (each, a “Grand Prize”).
Contestants must answer each skill testing question within a time limit of five (5) seconds.
After each correctly answered skill testing question, a Contestant can choose to stop playing the Quiz and, subject to these Contest Rules, be awarded the corresponding Grand Prize. If there is an incorrect answer at any point, the Quiz ends, and the Contestant do not win a Grand Prize.
If the Quiz is not correctly answered at 7:40 a.m. ET in accordance with the above, and no Grand Prizes are awarded, the process will begin again at 7:40 a.m. ET the next weekday. Please note that each Contest occasion will feature a different Quiz regardless if the previous Contest entry was answered correctly or not.
If at any time, after a reasonable number of attempts (the number of which shall be determined in Contest Sponsors’ sole discretion in each case) a Quiz is not correctly answered, the Contest Sponsors reserve the right in their sole and absolute discretion, to alter the methods of entry including but not limited to, providing more simple skill testing questions, so that the Grand Prizes may be awarded.
During the Contest Period, listeners may attempt to call-in as many times as they wish during each Contest occasion, but once through the Contest Line, only one (1) entry per person per Contest occasion is permitted. Multiple entries will be discarded. Entries are subject to verification and will be declared invalid if they are reproduced, falsified, altered or tampered with in any way.
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 station as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.
4. THE GRAND PRIZE AND GRAND PRIZE VALUE
The total number of Grand Prizes to be awarded during the Contest Period will depend on the total number of eligible entrants who call in and are able to correctly answer the skill testing questions.
