GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR ON-AIR CONTESTS
These rules and regulations shall apply to all on-air contests (the "Contest") unless stipulated otherwise, and where alternate rules and regulations are made available to the public. If there are any discrepancies between these rules and regulations and any other rules and regulations posted for any particular Contest (the "Alternate Rules"), such discrepancy shall be resolved in favour of the Alternate Rules.
The Contest is open to legal residents of Canada who have reached the age of majority in the province in which they reside. No person who is employed by the JPBGLP or its affiliate companies, and no family member of such employee shall be entitled to enter the Contest.
In certain cases, minors under the age of majority will be permitted to enter the Contest and be eligible to win the prize. 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.
How to Enter
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, he 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 compete the task. If no caller has correctly answered the question or completed the task, JPBGLP 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.
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 other fees associated with entering the Contest.
No Prize may be exchanged for cash, sold or transferred to any third party.
Odds of Winning
The odds of winning the Contest are dependant on the number of callers attempting to enter the Contest at any given time.
