Grand Prize Contest – Guess the 6-digit winning ‘Check’ number:  The predetermined grand prize winning 6-digit check number will be randomly pre-selected prior to the start of the contest by the Contest Administrator.  The winning 6-digit number will then be placed into a sealed security envelope prior to the start of the contest registration period, and will be held during the contest registration period by representatives of the Stations.  Each digit within the winning number shall fall between 0 – 9, inclusive and the winning number may be any number between 000000 – 999999, inclusive.  Numbers may repeat within the 6-digit winning number.


At the conclusion of the contest registration period on or about 5/27/2019, each eligible entry received (maximum of 10,000 entries) will be compared to the grand prize winning 6-digit check number, to determine if any eligible contestant has correctly guessed and submitted the winning 6-digit check number in its exact winning order.  (IE – each number must be in the correct position.)  In order to be eligible to claim the grand prize (see below), an eligible contestant must have correctly guessed the predetermined grand prize winning number by correctly guessing each digit in the 6-digit winning number in their exact winning order.  For example, if the winning check number was ‘123456’, then a submitted number guess of ‘654321’ would NOT be considered a winning entry or attempt.


If the grand prize winning 6-digit check number is not correctly guessed in its exact winning order by an eligible contestant during the registration period, according to these official rules, then the grand prize will NOT be awarded.
