2. Contest Period: The Contest begins on May 31, 2023 at or about 12:00:01 AM Central Time (“CT”), and ends on September 1, 2023 at 11:59:59 PM CT (the “Contest Period”).

3. How to Play/Enter: This is a listen-to-win Contest. There is a jackpot associated with this Contest, which will start out at $100.00 each time it is depleted (“Jackpot”). To play, listeners need to listen to WDRV The Drive at or about 8:05:00 AM CT weekdays (Mon-Fri), excluding July 4-July 7, 2023, during the Contest Period for Sherman & Tingle to solicit the 11th caller to play “5 @ 8:05”. Then, when a listener hears the DJ solicit caller 11, the 11th caller who reaches the Station by calling 312-642-9378 will play the “5 @ 8:05” trivia game (the “Game”) for a chance to win the Jackpot.

To play the Game, the caller must answer all five (5) Classic Rock questions correctly in order to win the Jackpot AND $50.00. If the 11th caller does not answer all five (5) Classic Rock questions correctly, that caller will still win $50.00, but will not win the Jackpot, and $25.00 will be added to the Jackpot for the next day’s Game (meaning, the next day’s Jackpot will be $125.00). $25.00 will be added to the Jackpot each time an 11th caller fails to answer all five (5) questions in a Game correctly and the Jackpot will continue to increase in $25.00 increments until an 11th caller wins the Jackpot, and then it will go back down to $100.00. Each 11th caller will win a minimum of $50.00.

Note that webcasts of Sponsor’s programming are typically on a delayed basis, which may affect a webcast listener’s ability to participate in this portion of the Contest.
