2. How to Enter/Selection of Winner
From Monday, April 3, 2023 and ends on Friday, April 28, 2023, participants have a minimum of two chances Monday through Friday to be caller #20 and correctly identify the “Secret Sound”.
Each weekday beginning Monday, April 3, 2023, and for the remainder of the Contest, at 7:15AM the KCVI morning show “The Viktor Wilt Show” will announce what times that day the “Secret Sound” will be played. When the sound is played, caller #20 will have a chance to identify the sound. If the caller identifies the sound correctly they will win the current jackpot amount. If the caller guesses incorrectly, an additional $25 will be added to the money currently in the prize pot unless the maximum allotted amount for the promotion has been reached. Once a correct answer is received for the current sound the prize pot goes back to $101.00 and a new secret sound will be utilized until it is either correctly identified or until the end of the contest. Incorrect guesses will be posted at kbear.fm to aid participants in determining the identity of the secret sound.
Entrants must give their permission to be broadcast in order to be officially declared the winner. In the event the entrant does not give their permission to be broadcast, that person will not be declared the winner, and the selection process will be repeated immediately until a winner is determined.
The Station reserves the right to preempt or not broadcast the Contest on any given day due to programming commitments, technical difficulties, and/or any reason the management of KCVI-FM determines to be reasonable and necessary. All decisions of the judges and/or administrators of the Contest are final.
The Prize consists of a check for the amount of $101.00, or the amount in the “prize pot” at the time that the “Secret Sound” is correctly identified. The station has allotted $1,500.00 for The Contest, once that allotted prize amount has been reached the prize pot will stop growing. Prizes not awarded due to ineligibility, technical difficulty, programming commitments, and/or any reason the management of KCVI determines to be reasonable and necessary shall not be recycled. All sales, prize and other taxes along with any other incidentals associated with the prize are the sole responsibility of the prize winner. Prize cannot be transferred, assigned, or substituted. Station reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable value should prize become unavailable. The Station assumes no responsibility or liability for damages loss or injury resulting from acceptance or use of the prize. Each winner will be required to appear in person at the KCVI offices in Idaho Falls within 30 days of winning a prize and produce identification satisfactory to the Station (preferably an Idaho driver’s license or identification card, with full name, current address, and date of birth and Social Security Card). Wives, husbands, children, relatives, etc. will not be allowed to show verification for the winner unless there are special circumstances. All cases of special circumstances will be determined by the management of KCVI. Each winner will be required to complete an IRS Form W-9 and will receive an IRS Form 1099-Misc. Each winner will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and release, including a publicity release, as prepared by the Station prior to receiving their prize.
