Any entries found to be lewd, bias, sexual, racist, bigoted, prejudicial or harassing will be void, causing for the entrant to be disqualified and triggering further action as the Station deems necessary. The Station will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements.

Entrants must have access to a printer and Zoom access. Sixteen (16) participants will be selected to play BINGO via Zoom with Houston Life talent from all entries. Participants will play using cards provided by Houston Life staff, each having five (5) vertical columns, with five (5) rows in each column. One letter from the word BINGO appears over each column. Each card will include a square marked “FREE” in the center. The players will mark each square is its corresponding letter and name is called.

Selection of Winners. Entrants will play three (3) rounds of BINGO during a Zoom call. When “BINGO” is declared, the caller will stop play and no more numbers will be called. One (1) potential winner(s) will be selected each round if they have all spaces covered diagonally, across a row or vertically in a column and calling “BINGO.” Players win only if they have the correct card pattern for the game. Contest winner(s) must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, publicity release and/or prize acceptance form within ten (10) days of winning or being notified of winning (sooner for time sensitive prizes), or prize(s) will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return any required affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, publicity release and/or prize acceptance form within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. Station reserves the right to contact all contest entrants to confirm the registration entry. The official registration list will remain the property of Station and will not be distributed to the Sponsor without the specific approval of the contest entrant using the Opt In check box on the registration form.
