Upon the expiration of the Contest Period, no more qualifiers will be accepted and no more prizes will be awarded.
During the Contest Period, participants must tune into the Carmen & Jurko Show (M-F 10A-2P CT) and the Waddle & Silvy Show (M-F 2P-6P CT) for their chance to win Chicago Blackhawk home game tickets. Each hour each weekday, a hockey buzzer sound effect will be broadcasted. When the sound effect is broadcasted, participants must place a call to (312) 332-3776 (the "Hotline"). The tenth (10th) caller will be selected to answer a trivia question about the Chicago Blackhawks. The caller who answers the trivia question correctly will be qualified to win the prize, so long as the caller satisfies the eligibility requirements set forth above. At most, eight (8) qualifiers per weekday (four from each show) will be entered into the prize drawing.
Only calls to the specified phone number during the specified time can win. Sponsors, as defined herein, are not responsible for inability of caller to complete call within specified time, whether due to busy lines, disconnections, telephone malfunctions or other circumstances. There is no limit on the number of calls that the caller may place to the Hotline in an attempt to win a prize. However, callers should not call the Hotline after the sound effects are broadcasted for promotional purposes, such as, the advertising of this Contest, or a demonstration of the sound effects. Callers cannot qualify to win a prize at these times.
In the event the selected caller does not correctly answer the trivia question that caller will be disqualified and the next caller will be given the opportunity to correctly answer the same trivia question, this will continue for up to four (4) additional callers should all the preceding callers incorrectly answer the trivia question for that round, for a total of five (5) opportunities to correctly answer that round's trivia question. Callers will be banked in the order their call was received during the initial call-in and each of those callers will be given the same single opportunity to correctly answer the same trivia question. In the event that after five (5) callers have been given the opportunity to correctly answer the trivia question and were not able to do so, that round will be closed, no qualifier will be selected and the next opportunity to call in will be announced. Once a trivia question has been asked it will not be reused in the next round nor any later rounds.
Prior to each Chicago Blackhawks home playoff game, one (1) winner will be randomly selected from all qualified entries to receive a prize. Winners will be announced on ESPN 1000 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT, Monday-Friday, prior to each Chicago Blackhawks home playoff game.
