Entries must contain all information requested and comply with all any applicable restrictions or requirements set forth herein to be valid. By participating in the Sweepstakes, participants agree that the Sponsor may contact them, via telephone or text message, at the telephone number from which the text message entry was received. The Sponsor is not responsible for entries not received due to difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties and other technological problems.

Entry by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning. Text message entries must meet all requirements set forth herein in order to be eligible. The text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but the Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate. To enter by text message, the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages. Participants should check their telephone’s features to see if they have texting capability. Wireless service providers may charge participants for each text message sent and/or received, including any error message that is sent and received in connection with the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan. By texting to enter, the participant grants permission to the Sponsor to notify them via a return text message and must agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith. Participant is responsible for all applicable fees and taxes associated with placing a text message entry. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may add or delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice. Proof of text messaging to the short code is not considered proof of delivery to, or receipt by, Sponsor of such entry. Participants are restricted to the use of ordinary telephone equipment. The Sponsor disclaims all liability for the inability of a participant to complete or continue a telephone call due to equipment malfunction, busy lines, inadvertent disconnections, acts beyond the Sponsor’s control, or otherwise. By participating in a Sweepstakes in which text message-based entry is permitted, participants acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through third party providers; neither the Sponsor nor Radio Show guarantee, nor shall either be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry. Not all wireless carries support access to a common short code (CSC). The CSC being used to enter a Sweepstakes may or may not be compatible with all wireless carriers, and as such, you may not be able to enter through the CSC method of entry. The Sponsor will at all times consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the participant attempted to send the entry and any technical problems or other complications that may have delayed its delivery. The Sponsor, through its third party text messaging administrators, will store all messages received on its system, and will send participants reply texts relating to the Sweepstakes throughout the Promotion Period and up to sixty (60) days. The Sponsor is not responsible for service outages, message failures, transmission delays or any other factor affecting the availability or performance of the text messaging service. The Sponsor may require, on request, proof of identity as to the rightful owner of the telephone number from which the text message entry was sent. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry if that entry’s source and/or sender cannot be reasonably determined.
5. RANDOM DRAWING / WINNER SELECTION:
On or about one (1) weekday after the Sweepstakes end date, one (1) potential winner will be randomly selected by the Sponsor from among all eligible entries collectively received from both entry methods during the Promotion Period. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. Winner(s) agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.
On or about one (1) weekday after winner selection, the potential winner(s) will be notified by a telephone call or text message at the number associated with the winning text message (if the potential winner entered via text message) or at the number provided at point of entry (if potential winner entered via online registration).
