Official Contest Rules - Pandemic Bailout Four
OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
RAD PANDEMIC BAILOUT 4
UPDATED APRIL 02, 2021
Given the current volatile state of our country, Williams Broadcasting reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to pre-empt various occasions planned as described below of contests scheduled at 7,8, and/or 9am. Should events demand a more serious and/or somber tone and games are cancelled, they will be exactly that; cancelled and not made up at a later date. Regardless, any cancellations will be minimal, and grand prize drawings will occur.
Description of Contest
A. Daily games will award the winners eligibility to win one of the eleven grand prizes as described below. No actual prizes will be won by the contestants playing the daily games, merely they will receive an entry into the grand prize drawings.
B. How to Enter and play: Beginning on Monday, April 12, 2021 as close to 7:00 am PDT as possible, and any hour thereafter at 8 and 9, the show (RAD) will invite listeners to be either the 18th 19th and 20th callers at 888-989-9811 to play either “Treble Trouble,” or “Master of Movies.” Or, to simply be caller 18 and play the “Pressure Cooker.” Invitations, including, and then following, the first one on 04/12/21, will occur each weekday as close as possible to the top of each live hour of the show (7:00, 8:00, and 9:00 am). All qualifiers will be eligible for the grand prize drawings to be held beginning June 21, 2021 at 7AM PDT as described below.
The regular occurring RAD show games, “Treble Trouble,” and “Master of Movies,” and the “Pressure Cooker,” will be played once each daily, rotating the three available time slots.
Treble Trouble is a game of skill, luck, and knowledge. A “hint” or clue will be given as to the title of the song in question. For example, “this is a song by The Beatles.” A 3-4 second clip of a song will then be played. The clip will be fed directly to the phone lines of each caller simultaneously. Caller 18 will then be asked to name the title of the song. If Caller 18 identifies the song title correctly, they will win the previously stated prize. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer, caller 19 will be given a chance, and then caller 20. If none of the three callers identify the song, the prize is not awarded to anyone. Once the title has been identified, a longer (30 seconds) clip will be played for all to hear proving the song’s identity. It will be up to the show hosts discretion to determine if any song title guess is deemed “close enough,” using a reasonable formula of not adding words and eliminating only minor parts of any title. For example, if the given title of the song is “A crazy little thing called love,” and a caller guesses “little thing called love,” hosts will deem that to be incomplete, having left out a key word of the title. However, if a caller guesses “crazy little thing called love,” leaving out only “a” from the title, hosts will deem that to be in the spirit of a correct answer.
Master of Movies is a game of skill, luck, and knowledge. A “hint” or clue will be given as to the movie from which the clip to be played originates. For example, “this is from a 2020 action comedy movie.” A clip from the movie in question will then be played containing a well-known moment from that film. The clip will be fed directly to the phone lines of each caller simultaneously. Caller 18 will then be asked to name the title of the movie. If Caller 18 identifies the movie title correctly, they will win the previously stated prize. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer, caller 19 will be given a chance, and then caller 20. If none of the three callers identify the movie, the prize is not awarded to anyone. Once the title has been identified, a longer (30 seconds) clip will be played for all to hear proving the movie’s identity. It will be up to the show hosts discretion to determine if any movie title guess is deemed “close enough,” using a reasonable formula of not adding words and eliminating only minor parts of any title. For example, if the given title of the movie is “Bad Boys For Life” and a caller guesses “Bad Boys,” hosts will deem that to be incomplete, having left out a key word of the title. However, if a caller guesses “Bad Boys 3; Bad Boys for life” adding unnecessary words to the title, hosts will deem that to be in the spirit of a correct answer. “Bad Boys 3,” however, would not be accepted as that is not the title of the movie in this example.
The Pressure Cooker is a timed game of skill and knowledge. Caller 18 will have 30 seconds to answer trivia questions as read by the host. A minimum of 5 questions and a maximum of 9 will be read, time allowed. Caller 18 must answer 5 questions correctly in order to win the stated prize. Caller 18 will not be told in the immediate that their answer is or isn’t correct. Rather, after the 30 seconds of questioning, hosts will recap each question and reveal the correct answer(s) while tabulating the caller’s score. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer 5 of the questions, the prize is not awarded to anyone.
During the playings of “Treble Trouble,” the “pressure cooker,” or “Master of Movies,” in the event that a technical malfunction makes it impossible for caller 18, 19, or 20 to participate in the game and/or provide the needed personal information to qualify for the drawing, caller will forfeit chance, regardless of the reasons for initial malfunction, including, but not limited to, cell phone cut-outs, accidental disconnection and force majeure. In the event of technical malfunction, original contestant waives and releases any and all rights and claims to attempt another guess, participate further in the contest, and to any contest prize.
C. Prizes: Upon winning any of the daily games, the winner will be qualified for the grand prize drawings
On Monday morning, June 21, 2021 at 7AM PDT, the show will announce a randomly chosen name from all qualifiers for one of the eleven grand prize packages.That person will have 6 minutes and 66 seconds from the time of their name being announced to call 888-989-9811 and provide, off-air, to the show’s phone screener, identifying information, verifying their identify. Once confirmed, they will then be placed on hold to go live on the air to claim their prize.
If the named person does not call, no prize is awarded and we proceed to the next event as scheduled.
If the named person calls and verifies their identity, they will then be asked to choose a number between 1 and 11. Corresponding envelopes, sealed and postmarked with a date on or prior to April 12, 2021 will be in the on-air studio and will be numbered 1 through 11. Whichever number the caller selects will correspond to the envelope opened live on the air.
Inside the envelope there will be a dollar amount ranging between $5 and $6900. Once the caller is told the amount, they will be given a choice; they can accept the prize, and have their name removed from eligibility of the remaining drawings (unless they have legitimately qualified more than once following the rules), or they can forfeit the prize announced, and have their name placed back into the eligible bucket drawing. If they accept the prize, subsequent callers will be asked to choose amongst the 10 (and dwindling from there) numbers). If they do not accept the prize and choose to continue being eligible, all remaining contestants will now know the contents of the envelope chosen.
For example, if the caller chooses envelope #5 and it contains “$5” as the grand prize and the caller choose to forfeit it, the envelope numbered 5 will be the $5 prize until it is claimed by a qualified and drawn name.
In all events, a second drawing identical to what is described previously will occur at 8AM PDT. These drawings will continue each hour at 7,8, and 9 AM PDT for however long it takes to find all verified winners.
