BUST JOHN DEBELLA’S CHRISTMAS BALLS – OFFICIAL CONTEST 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

The Contest period runs from Monday, December 1, 2014  at 6:00am through Friday December 12, 2014 at 9:00am, weekdays only.

John DeBella will hang 16 Christmas Balls on his virtual Christmas Tree. Each ball will be numbered 1 through 16, with one of the sixteen balls being designated as the Bonus Ball.  Each weekday morning during the contest period, between 6am and 9am, John DeBella will invite listeners to call 215-263-WMGK (9645) and attempt to “break” one of the numbered Christmas Balls on his virtual Christmas tree.  A specific prize will be assigned to each ball (other than the Bonus Ball), but the prize will not be revealed on-air or online until after the ball is selected. If the correct caller selects a numbered Christmas Ball that hasn’t been broken previously by another caller, the current caller will win the designated prize, which will then be revealed on-air.  If the caller selects a Christmas Ball that has already been broken by a previous caller, the current caller will be disqualified and the John DeBella Show will continue to take callers until a caller selects a numbered Christmas Ball that hasn’t already been broken.  On one or more days during the contest period, John DeBella may solicit callers more than once during his Show.

Bonus Ball:  If a caller selects the Bonus Ball, the caller will get to select two additional balls from John’s Christmas Tree.  If neither of the balls selected has been broken by a previous caller, the caller will win both prizes and the Bonus Ball will also be considered “broken”. If only one of the balls selected has been broken, the caller will win the prize from the previously unbroken ball and the Bonus Ball will remain in play for future callers.  If both of the balls selected have been broken by previous callers, the current caller will be disqualified and the John DeBella Show will continue to take callers as described above. 

Prizes

Each of the prizes listed below will be assigned to a specific Christmas Ball on the tree.  The letter of the prizes listed below does not correspond in any way to the number of the Christmas Ball they will be assigned to.
