[Contest Rules] Guess How Many Tickets – Win Bon Jovi Tickets!
OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
The Gold Coast Tickets “Guess How Many Tickets” Contest (the “Contest”) begins October 18, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. CST and ends October 21, 2013 at 3:59 p.m. CST (“Contest Period”). ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY October 21, 2013 at 3:59 p.m. This is a skill-based contest and chance plays no part in the determination of winners.
WHO MAY ENTER
Contest is open only to individuals who have reached the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence at the time of entry. Employees of Gold Coast Tickets, LTD. (“Gold Coast Tickets”), and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their immediate family members (spouse, parent, child, sibling and their respective spouses, regardless of where they live) or persons living in the same households of such employees, whether or not related are not eligible. Void where prohibited.
HOW TO ENTER
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. There are two ways to enter, and each entry counts as a separate entry. Only your FIRST entry per entry method counts.
NOTE: if you enter both ways, there are two different strategies you may use to your benefit. Choose wisely, because both strategies have their individual pros and cons. Strategy one: if you feel confident that you have the right guess, enter the same number by email and twitter. If your number is correct and another person who entered also has the same number, you will have two entries in the random drawing from the winner pool. Strategy two: enter two different numbers – one via email and one on twitter – and give yourself a better chance of guessing the correct number. You will only have one entry if one of your number is correct, but you have two chances to guess the correct number.
- Email: To enter, email your guess of how many tickets are in the box to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following email format:
- Subject Line:
- Bon Jovi guess
- # of tickets you are guessing
- your first and last name
- phone number (we will need this to reach you if you win)
- Subject Line:
- Twitter: To enter, tweet your guess to @YouGotAGuy and include the following hashtags: #GuessHowManyTicketsContest #BonJovi
LIMIT TWO ENTRIES PER PERSON – ONLY ONE PER ENTRY METHOD. Entries must be posted during the Contest Period.
(3) Winners will get a pair (2) of tickets, one pair per winner. One prize per winner (winner cannot win more than one pair).
After the contest period has concluded, the closest three guesses without going over (think: The Price is Right Rule) win a pair of Bon Jovi tickets for the concert on Wednesday, October 23 at the United Center. Tickets have an approximate retail value of $100 (Total value of $200). If there are multiple correct guesses (a tie), there will be a random drawing to choose the winners from the pool of correct guesses. If more than one correct guess was given per entry methods from one individual, both entries will go into the pool, thereby increasing entrant’s chances of winning (see strategies under “HOW TO ENTER” above.)
If no person has guessed the correct number of tickets by the end of the contest period or if there are still prizes to be awarded after winners have been chosen, the person(s) whose guess is closest without going over will win. In the event of a tie among this pool, another random drawing will occur to determine final winners.
The winning entries will be contacted by Gold Coast Tickets via the phone number they provided in the entry email or by their twitter handle, at which time they will be given additional instruction on how to claim the prize. If we are unable to reach the winner(s) within 24 hours, alternate winner(s) will be chosen. Winner(s) failing to comply with any requirements will result in disqualification and the selection of an alternate winner. In the event of any other noncompliance with rules and conditions, prize may be awarded to an alternate winner. Taxes, if any, are the winner’s sole responsibility. GOLD COAST TICKETS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SUBSTITUTE PRIZES OF EQUAL OR GREATER VALUE IF PRIZE, AS STATED ABOVE, BECOMES UNAVAILABLE.
The winners and total number of tickets in the box will be announced after the contest has concluded.
