97.5 The Fanatic - Football Knockout Pool Contest – Official Rules

NO PURCHASE OR OTHER CONSIDERATION IS NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS CONTEST; PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE CHANCES OF WINNING. 

How to Enter for a Chance to Win

To enter: beginning Thursday, August 27, 2014, interested participants may enter by filling out the online registration form, at: http://www.runyourpool.com/join.cfm (“Website”). The maximum number of entries allowed is 5,000 (five thousand); entries will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and any entries above 5,000 will be disqualified.  Limit one entry per person. 

 

Each week, entrants will select one professional football team that they believe will win its scheduled matchup that week.  Weekly matchups are predetermined by the professional football league and posted on the weekly schedule on the “Your Picks” page of the Website.  All picks must be made prior to the start of the first Sunday game at 1pm ET each week.  Once an entrant selects a team, the entrant is only allowed to change his/her selection up until the start of the first Sunday game at 1pm ET.  At that point the selection is considered final and cannot be changed.  Any entrant who has not made a selection by the Sunday game at 1pm ET will be assigned a loss for the week and eliminated from the contest. 

Entrants must select a winning team each week in order to advance to the following week. If an entrant’s selected team wins, the entrant survives and remains in the Knockout Pool until he/she selects a team that loses its matchup.  Once an entrant selects a team to win, that team cannot be selected again in any subsequent week.  For example, if an entrant selects the Philadelphia professional football team to win Week 1, that entrant will be unable to select the Philadelphia professional football team again while participating in the Contest. 

 

In the event of a tied football game, both teams will be scored as a winning selection, and any entrants who selected either tied team will advance. 

When one single entrant remains in the Knockout Pool, that entrant will be declared the winner of the Knockout Pool.  If multiple entrants remain in the Knockout Poll at Week 17 of the 2014 regular season, each remaining entrant will be asked to pick the winner of each of the 16 NFL matchups for Week 17.  The entrant with the most correctly picked winning teams will be named the winner of the Knockout Pool.  Entrants will also be asked to guess the final score of the Philadelphia Eagles/New York Giants game in Week 17.  In case of a tie for most correctly picked winning teams, the point total of the Philadelphia/New York Giants game will act as a tie-breaker.  The entrant with the closest guess of the combined point total from this game will win the tie-breaker.  If there is still a tie, the winner will be selected by random drawing from the remaining tied entrants.

Entrants must use a valid and unique email address when submitting their entry. Only one entry per person and per email address is allowed. Contestants found to have entered more than once will be automatically disqualified.

 

Prize

One (1) Grand Prize will be awarded:  an Apple Vacations trip for two (2) people to the winner’s choice of either Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic or Cancun, Mexico.  Prize consists of two round-trip coach flights from Philadelphia to destination airport, and one hotel room (double occupancy) for three (3) nights.  Winner will also receive $1,000, payable by company check.  Allow 4-6 weeks for check processing. 

Total value of grand prize:  $3,500.00.  Winner has until September 1, 2015 to complete all travel.  Reservations are required and are subject to availability, and may include blackout periods and other restrictions.  Valid credit card will be required at hotel check-in to cover incidentals.  All items not specifically listed as included in the grand prize package are the sole responsibility of the winner, including (without limitation) any other ground transportation, gas, parking, meals, baggage fees, gratuities, taxes, and other incidentals.  Minor guest, if any, must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  Winner and guest must travel on the same itinerary.

Non-cash prizes are not redeemable for cash.  Station reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute any prize with one of equal or greater value.  Winner may not request prize substitution.  Prize is non-transferable and may not be claimed or used by any person other than the winner.  Winner must present valid photo ID and proof of residence upon acceptance of prize. If a winner is unable to provide valid photo ID and proof of residence, he/she will be disqualified. The winner must claim prize and/or prize certificate(s) by completing all required paperwork in person, within 30 days after the contest concludes, at the offices of 97.5 The Fanatic (Station) at One Bala Plaza, Suite 300, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.  Failure to claim prize by this time will result in forfeiture of prize.
