Then, each entrant will have until the end of the hour (at :59:59 of the Designated Playtime's hour) to submit the Code to receive an entry into such Designated Playtime's drawing (for the avoidance of doubt, if the Station announces the Code for a Designated Playtime at 4:37 PM ET, the entry period for such Designated Period will end at 4:59:59 PM ET).

For HELP, text "HELP" to 200200 or e-mail TEXTOPTOUT@IHEARTMEDIA.COM. To STOP, text "STOP" to 200200 or e-mail TEXTOPTOUT@IHEARTMEDIA.COM.Individuals who enter by text-messaging will be charged according to their carriers' standard messaging and data rates, and entrants should contact their carriers for pricing details.

Non-winning entries from one Designated Playtime will not roll into subsequent Designated Playtime entry periods.
*Throughout the Sweepstakes Period on each Daily Entry Period and during the Designated Playtimes, a "sounder" or cue to play will be aired at various times along with a Designated Code and a message instructing listeners to submit the Designated Code within a certain time to enter the Sweepstakes. There will be a series of randomly scheduled national playtimes each weekday during the Sweepstakes Period. The Stations, at their sole discretion may or may not choose to air all playtimes due to programming obligations and other factors. Each participating Station reserves the right to amend non-material portions of this Sweepstakes at a local level in their sole discretion, which may not affect the material terms of the Sweepstakes, including opting out of specific Designated Times. In the event that a participating Station has made changes subject to the official rules, those changes shall individually and solely apply to that specific Station's participation and the Station's listener's participation and shall not apply to any other participating station. Such amendments, if any, are set forth in the Official Rules' addendum. To determine if your local station has provided an addendum to these rules, or for more information about the local station's participation you may contact the local station during regular business hours. Participating Stations may not amend other material portions of this Sweepstakes at a local level other than their individual participating times and dates at their sole discretion. If a participating Station has amended any portion of the Official Rules the station will provide an addendum to these rules which will be deemed part of the official Sweepstakes rules for the individual station identified on the addendum. The participating Stations may or may not choose to announce exact times that future cues will be played and may choose not to participate in each Designated Playtime of the day. All participating Station listeners will be competing with listeners from other stations around the country who will also receive a "cue to play" at the same time and will be entered into the same pool of entrants from which one winner each playtime will be determined.

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.

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 Company 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 ENTRANT'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.
