On July 16th, Our Weather Guarantee winner Judith Fleming called and claimed her jackpot of $1500, so our jackpot rolled over and started again at $1000!
Every day, Russ Lacate forecasts a high temperature. At 7:11 a.m. the next day, we revisit the previous day’s high temp. If Russ is within 2 degrees of the guarantee, we add $100 to the jackpot, so it becomes $1,100, then $1,200, and so on…At 7:11 a.m. Russ Lacate will check the day’s high temperature at Vancouver Airport against his prediction from the day before
- If he’s within 2 degrees, $100 is added onto the escalating jackpot
- If he blows it, we’ll let everyone know that someone has the opportunity to win the jackpot later that day!
- Once Russ announces that he has missed the previous day’s daily high, you have until 4:54pm that day to enter the contest for the jackpot.
- At 4:55 p.m. Russ will announce the name of the lucky Insider who can claim the cash.
- That person has 11 minutes and 30 seconds to call in to the station using our toll-free contest number 310-1130 and win!
- If we don’t get a phone call, the jackpot rolls over and keeps building. Your entries do not roll over, and you need to submit for the rolled over jackpot as it is a new contest.
- If we get our winner, a new contest will start with the jackpot at $1000, and you can submit new entries for the new draw.
