TO PLAY

15. Weekly Games to determine potential winners will be held on December 9, 2016 and December 16, 2016 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time (“ET”). To play:

a. Step 1: Watch: First, watch abc27 News at 5 (the “Program”) at 5:00 PM on channel 10. During the Program, a “cue to call” will appear on screen during a commercial break, along with the Promotion phone number.

b. Step 2: Call: When the Promotion phone number appears, call the Promotion phone number indicated. Subject to verification of eligibility, the twenty-seventh (27th) caller, as determined by abc27 in its sole discretion, will be declared the Weekly Prize winner.

16. If any potential winner declines the prize or is immediately disqualified or determined to be ineligible for any reason, abc27 will repeat the process with the next caller until a potential winner can be confirmed or until either the Program concludes or no callers remain and no calls have been received for fifteen (15) minutes or more, whichever occurs first, in which case, no further attempts will be made and that prize will not be awarded.

17. If fewer than twenty-seven (27) calls are received during either Weekly Game, abc27 reserves the right in its sole discretion, to award the corresponding prize to the last caller, or not to award the corresponding prize at all. All dates and times are subject to change in the event of technical issues or human error affecting any scheduled broadcast of the Program or any selection process, or in the event of breaking news or national or local emergency or condition that is of greater public importance, than the timely broadcast of the Program as scheduled, in abc27’s sole discretion. If any of the foregoing result in the non-broadcast of the Program during the scheduled broadcast time, abc27 reserves the right in its sole discretion, to replay the relevant Weekly Game on a different day or at a different time, roll the corresponding prize forward into future Weekly Games, if any, or to not award the corresponding prize, or otherwise to handle such issues as it deems fair and appropriate under the circumstances. abc27 will not be responsible for breaking news preemption, weather, acts of God, acts of terrorism, civil disturbances, strike, work stoppage, natural disaster, technical malfunctions, scheduling conflicts, non-broadcast, out-of-normal-timeslot telecast, or any other events or occurrences that may result in the modification or cancellation of any scheduled Program by abc27 in its discretion.

18. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed, script, macro, or any other automated means or methods or agents to call is prohibited and will void all calls made or attempted by that participant. No group submissions will be accepted.

19. Each potential winner may be required to provide a working daytime telephone number and/or valid e-mail address. abc27 is not responsible for voice or electronic communications that are undeliverable because of any form of call blocking of any kind or inability to leave a voice message or passive or as to e-mail, active filtering of any kind. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of a winner based on a telephone number, the call will be deemed made by the “Authorized Account Holder” of the telephone number from which the winning call originated or that was provided at time of the original call. The Authorized Account Holder is the natural person who is assigned to the telephone number by the corresponding telecommunications company. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any participant, the potential winner agrees to furnish requested documentation confirming his/her status as the Authorized Account Holder.

20. Participants who fail to provide any required information may be disqualified without further notification by abc27. abc27 is not responsible for calls that are lost, misdirected, garbled, distorted, truncated, incomplete, illegible, incorrect or late for any reason, and all such calls are void. abc27 reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any call at any time that in its opinion does not comply with these Official Rules.
