ALTERNATE METHOD OF ENTRY (AMOE)

To enter the Sweepstakes without sending a text message, you may enter by visiting www.ONwithMario.com (the “Website”) and follow the Sweepstakes link to enter by submitting the key word and completing the online entry form for the Sweepstakes.  All entries received online must be received during the Promotion Entry Period and must include the correct key word.  

Regardless of what method of entry is used, there is a limit of one (1) entry per person per day for the duration of the Promotion Entry Period. A “day” begins at 12:00:01 a.m. PT and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. PT. Incomplete and/or invalid or duplicate entries will be disqualified.

Any entry received or made either by text message or online after the Sweepstakes End Date will not be valid and will not be deemed eligible.  Valid Sweepstakes entries must contain all information requested and must be received by the Sponsor on or before the deadline for entry.  Entries must contain all information requested and comply with all any applicable restrictions or requirements set forth herein to be valid. By participating in the Sweepstakes, participants agree that the Sponsor may contact them in connection with the Sweepstakes, via telephone or text message, at the telephone number from which the text message entry was received. The Sponsor is not responsible for entries not received due to difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties and other technological problems. The Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, undeliverable, illegible, damaged, stolen, garbled, delayed, misdirected, mutilated, or incomplete entries or communications, regardless of cause.  Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same e-mail address and/or telephone number. Should multiple users of the same e-mail account or mobile telephone number, as applicable, enter the Sweepstakes and a dispute thereafter arise regarding the identity of the participant, the authorized account holder of said e-mail account or mobile telephone account at the time of entry will be considered the participant. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address or mobile telephone number by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, telephone service provider or other organization which is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses, telephone numbers or the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Participants may not register with multiple email addresses nor may participants use any other device or artifice to register multiple times or as multiple registrants. Any participant who attempts to enter with multiple email addresses under multiple identities or uses any device or artifice to register/play multiple times will be disqualified and forfeits any and all prize(s) won, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Proof of submission of an entry shall not be deemed proof of submission or receipt by the Sponsor for online entries.  Entries will be disqualified if found to be incomplete and/or if prohibited multiple entries are determined. Entries in excess of the above stated limit will be declared ineligible. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be receipt acknowledged or returned. Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winner(s) are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. The Sponsor assumes no responsibility for participants not making timely texts to the Sponsor. The Sponsor assumes no responsibility for participants not receiving the key word as a result of the delays or issues in the Internet stream or otherwise.

Entry by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning. Text message entries must meet all requirements set forth herein in order to be eligible. The text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but the Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate. To enter by text message, the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages. Participants should check their telephone’s features to see if they have texting capability. Wireless service providers may charge participants for each text message sent and/or received, including any error message that is sent and received in connection with the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan.  By texting to enter, the participant grants permission to the Sponsor to notify them via a return text message relating to the Sweepstakes and must agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith.  Participant is responsible for all applicable fees and taxes associated with placing a text message entry.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may add or delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice.  Proof of text messaging to the short code is not considered proof of delivery to, or receipt by, Sponsor of such entry.  Participants are restricted to the use of ordinary telephone equipment. The Sponsor disclaims all liability for the inability of a participant to complete or continue a telephone call due to equipment malfunction, busy lines, inadvertent disconnections, acts beyond the Sponsor’s control, or otherwise. By participating in a Sweepstakes in which text message-based entry is permitted, participants acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through third party providers; neither the Sponsor nor Radio Show guarantee, nor shall either be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry.  Not all wireless carries support access to a common short code (CSC). The CSC being used to enter a Sweepstakes may or may not be compatible with all wireless carriers, and as such, you may not be able to enter through the CSC method of entry.  The Sponsor will at all times consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the participant attempted to send the entry and any technical problems or other complications that may have delayed its delivery. The Sponsor, through its third party text messaging administrators, will store all messages received on its system, and will send participants reply texts relating to the Sweepstakes throughout the Promotion Entry Period and up to sixty (60) days thereafter. The Sponsor is not responsible for service outages, message failures, transmission delays or any other factor affecting the availability or performance of the text messaging service. The Sponsor may require, on request, proof of identity as to the rightful owner of the telephone number from which the text message entry was sent. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry if that entry's source and/or sender cannot be reasonably determined. BY TEXTING TO ENTER, THE PARTICIPANT GRANTS PERMISSION TO THE SPONSOR TO NOTIFY THEM VIA ONE (1) RETURN AUTODIALED TEXT MESSAGE PER ENTRY AND UP TO THREE (3) ADDITIONAL AUTODIALED TEXT MESSAGES IF PARTICIPANT IS A FINALIST, QUALIFIER, OR WINNER, AS APPLICABLE AND MUST AGREE TO ACCEPT ALL APPLICABLE CHARGES ASSOCIATED THEREWITH. PARTICIPANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES TO RECEIVE AT LEAST ONE (1) AUTODIALED TEXT MESSAGE IN RESPONSE TO THE ORIGINAL ENTRY, INCLUDING A MESSAGE CONFIRMING ENTRY, LEGAL DISCLAIMERS AND OPTIONS TO RECEIVE FUTURE PROMOTIONAL MESSAGES FROM THE SPONSOR.

5. PRIZE DRAWING / WINNER NOTIFICATION: On or about one (1) weekday after the Sweepstakes End Date, five (5) potential finalist winners and one (1) potential grand prize winner will be randomly selected by the Sponsor from among all eligible entries collectively received from both entry methods during the Promotion Entry Period. Odds of winning a finalist prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Entry Period.  Odds of winning a grand prize are one (1) in five (5).

On or about two (2) weekdays after the Sweepstakes End Date at or around 12:00 p.m. PT, the potential winner(s) will be notified by a telephone call at the number associated with the winning text message (if the potential winner(s) entered via text message) or at the telephone number provided at point of entry (if the potential winner(s) entered via online registration). The potential winner(s) must answer the first (1st) or second (2nd) telephone call or return the first (1st) telephone call within twenty-four (24) hours. The Sponsor will not, and is not obligated to, leave voice mail, answering machine or other message. If the potential winner(s) cannot be reached directly after two (2) telephone calls, the potential winner(s) will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected at random from among all of the remaining eligible entries until a winner is determined (up to a maximum of three (3) alternate winner selections). The alternate potential winner(s) will also be notified in accordance with this paragraph.

By participating, you agree (a) to be bound by these Official Rules; (b) as between you and the Sponsor, that the decisions of the Sponsor is final on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes; (c) you are not participating on behalf of any employer or third party; (d) in the event that you do not comply with these Official Rules, that you will be disqualified and your prize (if any) will be forfeited; and (e) (when applicable) the potential winner and/or finalist must be available to participate in any portion of the Sweepstakes that participation may be required to be considered eligible.

Potential winner(s) is subject to verification, including verification of eligibility. If a participant is unable to verify his/her information, the participant will automatically be disqualified and their prize, if any, will be forfeited. The Sponsor reserves at its sole discretion the right to not award the prize or to determine an alternate winner or finalist (if applicable) in accordance with the Official Rules in the event that that any winner or finalist has been disqualified, cannot be contacted, or is deemed ineligible for any reason, or is not available to participate in any applicable Sweepstakes events.  Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon placing of a telephone call or sending of an email or any other form of communication Sponsor may use to contact the finalists (if any) and/or a potential winner. The Sponsor is not responsible for any change of email address, mailing address, and/or telephone number of participants.

The potential winner(s) may collectively be referred to herein as “Winner” or “Winner(s)”.

12. CONDUCT AND DECISIONS:  All decisions of the Sponsor will be final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Persons who violate any rule, gain unfair advantage in participating in the Sweepstakes, or obtain winner status using fraudulent means will be disqualified. The Sponsor will interpret these Official Rules and resolve any disputes, conflicting claims, or ambiguities concerning the Official Rules or the Sweepstakes and the Sponsor’s decisions concerning such disputes shall be final. If, for any reason, more bona fide Winner(s) come forward seeking to claim the prize, an alternate participant may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for the prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each participant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Any reference in these Official Rules or as part of the Sweepstakes to the Sponsor’s and/or Radio Show’s "discretion" and/or any exercise of discretion by the Sponsor or Radio Show shall mean in Sponsor’s and/or Radio Show’s "sole and unfettered discretion."  The Sponsor further reserves the right to: (i) terminate or declare any Sweepstakes null and void and rescind any prize, if in its sole judgment, the Official Rules or the integrity of the Sweepstakes have been violated or compromised in any way, intentionally or unintentionally by any person whether or not a participant in the Sweepstakes; (ii) alter or amend these Sweepstakes Official Rules at any time; and/or (iii) stop or conclude the Sweepstakes at any time without prior notice. Material changes to the Sweepstakes Official Rules will be broadcast on-air, when practical. The Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of this provision. If, due to circumstances beyond the control of the Sponsor, any segment of the Sweepstakes is delayed, rescheduled, postponed or cancelled, the Sponsor reserves the right, but not the obligation, to modify, suspend or cancel the Sweepstakes and shall not be required to award a substitute prize.

13. BINDING ARBITRATION: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Sweepstakes shall be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty (60) days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties.  THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN THE PARTICIPANT’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.  DO NOT ENTER THIS SWEEPSTAKES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

14. MISCELLANEOUS:  Sponsor reserves the right to determine eligibility should special circumstances arise, all decisions are considered final and binding.  These Official Rules are designed to be fair and equal to all participants.  Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Entry Period.  Any Winner must submit proof of eligibility and sign the Sponsor’s Affidavit to claim the prize.  The Sponsor may substitute prize(s), amend the Official Rules, or discontinue the Sweepstakes at any time as announced on the Radio Show.  The Sponsor disclaims any responsibility to notify participants of any aspect related to the conduct of the Sweepstakes.
