To enter (“Contestant”), be the correct-numbered caller at 530-244-9736 as announced by the Q97 on-air personality (“Game Host”).   Contestant will be asked to select (2) remaining un-matched numbered squares ranging between 1 to 97.  A visual-aid gameboard is posted on Website and updated Monday-Friday at 8:00pm during the Contest Period.  Effective April 22,  1 square will be revealed each weekday morning in the 8am hour.  Ability to view the gameboard is not required to enter (Note that week-day update time means same-day guesses will not be reflected online until later the same evening).  Game Host will allow Contestant to guess numbered squares until discovering one that is un-matched.  After each un-matched square is guessed by Contestant,  Game Host will reveal the prize contents of that square.  If the Contestant guesses two squares that match identical prizes, Contestant wins that Prize, and the two matching squares will be removed from play on the gameboard.  Squares may be played again until removed from gameboard.  If there is no match, there is a Consolation Gift.

Contestant may enter the Contest up to 1 time per 5 days. More than 1 Contestant per household is eligible to enter.  Contestant may win 1x during the Contest.  Contestant is defined as the caller who first speaks to the Game Host on phone.
