When conducting any contest in which listeners are directed to be a certain number caller when a specific song or artist is played, the following rules will apply: snippets of songs played for advertising or promotional purposes and music beds that contain music from the designated artist or song WILL NOT count. Only songs that are played from beginning to end will be used to solicit contest calls. Listeners should try to be the correct caller at 215-263-WMGK as soon as they hear the specific song or artist begin to play. If a listener accidentally calls when a song snippet or music bed is played, s/he will simply be informed of the error; no harm, no foul!
Winner/caller qualification is subject to FULL phone call completion, and the verification of the caller’s name, address, home phone number, work/cell phone number and social security number, all of which must be provided prior to completion of the call. Contest calls will not be accepted at any other number. If caller gets disconnected for any reason before their name and phone number have been recorded, another call will be taken to determine the winner/qualifier.

Text Messaging:

If there is any dispute about the identity of an entrant, the registered user of the text message account on the date of entry will be the recognized entrant. All participants acknowledge that messages are distributed by third-party mobile network providers and WMGK cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery. Participants acknowledge that, depending on the recipient’s mobile provider service, it may not be possible to transmit the message to the recipient successfully. WMGK assumes no responsibility for, and does not guarantee in any way, the availability or performance of any mobile, text or data service, including liability for transmission delays or message failures.

WMGK does not charge a fee for text entries. It is each entrant’s responsibility to check with their individual carrier and mobile/data plan, as other charges may apply. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT TEXT MESSAGES SENT TO WMGK MAY RESULT IN ONE OR MORE AUTOMATIC BOUNCE BACK MESSAGES, FOR WHICH PARTICIPANTS MAY INCUR A FEE FROM THEIR PROVIDER. WMGK assumes no responsibility for charges incurred for text-messaging, including (without limitation) charges resulting from any bounce back messages or contest notices from the Station.
For texting contests in which entrants are asked to text specific information to a designated telephone line at a particular time or times (as announced by WMGK): At the time that texts are solicited, the criteria for winning will be announced (for example, first text message received with the correct answer). Only those text messages sent to the specific phone number provided, at the time texting is solicited, will be eligible to win. Texting to the main WMGK phone number or any other phone number are not eligible. Winners will be selected in accordance with the criteria announced when text messages are solicited.
For all WMGK texting contests, unless otherwise noted, the texter chosen must answer their phone when called or another winner will be selected.

When participating in our text contests, potential winners will be notified in one of two ways:
(1) if you receive a call from WMGK shortly after texting in, you must pick up the phone or you will be disqualified and another winner will be chosen.
(2) if you are contacted via a bounceback message to be informed that you are a potential winner, you will have 48 hours to provide the station with additional information required to obtain your prize. If you do not provide this info within 48 hours, your prize may be forfeited.

For all texting contests, standard texting charges by your mobile phone carrier may apply; please check your mobile contract for details.
