Any rules for special/specific contests will be posted as a “Part II” addendum. Unless specifically mentioned in a “Part II” addendum, these are the general contest rules:
Part I – “General Contest Rules”
No purchase is ever necessary to play or win. A purchase does not increase odds of winning. Void where prohibited. All contestants/winners must be legal U.S. citizens at least 18 years of age or older and provide valid state-issued photo ID upon request. Additionally any contest relating to a bar, casino or lottery entity requires all contestants/winners to be at least 21 years of age or older. These rules and the rules below apply to on-air, on-line, in-person, texting and Loyal Listener Club contests.
WXCY only allows one (1) winner (either qualifier or grand prize) per household per 30 days. Likewise, winners may only win one prize valued at $1,000 or more per 12 month period. All winners of prizes valued over $600 will be responsible for all applicable taxes and will be issued a 1099 form. All winners must complete a Prize Claim Form.
Prizes won are yours to keep and are non-transferrable. Substitute prizes or taking a ‘cash value’ amount is not allowed. Prizes won on-air, on-line, in person requiring pick-up later or through the WXCY Loyal Listener Club must be claimed within 2 weeks or 10 full business days excluding holidays. If they are not claimed by the winner they are considered forfeited and will remain the property of WXCY. Prizes can be claimed in person with a valid state-issued photo ID at 707 Revolution Street in Havre de Grace Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm. Some prizes can be mailed via USPS at the winner’s request and risk as WXCY cannot guarantee delivery and safety in shipping. Any prizes lost due to damage, slow delivery or non-delivery will not be replaced.
If WXCY contests require contestants to call-in to win or qualify - only the correct caller number as identified on-air will be the winner (ie: “Caller #10 wins”). The decision of the WXCY DJ on-duty at that time is final. WXCY is not responsible for lost or dropped calls, an inability to connect or complete a call, local or long distance charges applied, and any acts of God or the phone company that are beyond our control. All phone-in contests will be conducted via 1-800-788-9929 (WXCY). Any WXCY call-in contest that collects winners as qualifier to enter a larger grand prize drawing will have the gran prize winner determined by a random draw. This may occur on-air or off-air. If there is a texting component, standard messaging ratings may apply.
If any WXCY contest has an “open entry” mechanic requiring contestants to manually enter-to-win in-person with paper and pen or online through electronic submission or by any other means – only 1 entry per person per contest is accepted. Additional entries beyond the first will be omitted. Any enter-to-win contest winner(s) will be determined by random drawing of all eligible entries.
Employees of WXCY, Delmarva Broadcasting Company, immediate family members, sponsors, agents, affiliates, parent companies, and others acting on their behalf are not eligible to win. Likewise, employees of other media entities in the Philadelphia, Wilmington, Lancaster and Baltimore metro areas are not eligible to play or win.
Contestant, qualifier and winners names, voice and likenesses may be used by WXCY for promotional purposes without further compensation.
WXCY may end, change or alter any contest at any time without notice. All decisions of judges (if applicable) and WXCY Management are considered final.
