Upon registering, eligible entrants will automatically receive one entry into the Contest. Limit one (1) entry per person per day.

4. How to Win a Cash Prize This is a “listen and win” Contest. To see if you have a chance to win, you must listen to The Drive during each Prize Period (defined in Official Rule 2 (2) above) for your name to be announced on the air. Once your name is announced, you will have ten (10) minutes to personally call 312-642-WDRV and reach the station (“Call Window”). Once you have reached the station within the Call Window, you will receive a $25.00 Amazon Gift Card for that Prize Period and one (1) entry into the Grand Prize random drawing. If the person’s whose name is read on-air does not call and reach the station within the Call Window, then he/she will not win $25 Amazon Gift Card for that Prize Period and will not be included in the Grand Prize random drawing, and there will be no winner for that Prize Period.

The person calling in to the station to claim the $25 Amazon Gift Card and an entry into the Grand Prize random drawing must be the person whose name was announced on-air; substitute callers (e.g. friends, relatives, co-workers, etc.) are NOT allowed, except in the case of a disability that prevents the person whose name is announced from calling himself or herself, and will result in disqualification at the sole discretion of Sponsor.

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. Odds of becoming a winner depend on the number of eligible entries received, and whether or not the person whose name is drawn randomly calls into the station during his/her Call Window.

5. How Grand Prize Winner Is Chosen – One (1) potential Grand Prize winner will be selected from among all Prize Period winners, via a random drawing, to be held on or about November 2, 2020. The potential Grand Prize winner will be notified by phone via the number from his/her entry. If the potential Grand Prize winner whose number is called does not answer his/her phone (i.e., the phone goes to voicemail, they are not understandable, or the number continues to ring without anyone answering), he/she will not become a winner, and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected from among the remaining Game Period players received. This process will continue until a potential winner whose number is called answers his/her phone. Odds of winning the Grand Prize are up to 1:160.

6. Prizes & Approximate Retail Values: One (1) Grand Prize – $20,000.00, awarded in the form of a check to the Grand Prize winner. ARV: $20,000.00 each.
