If you have a matching number you must call the Winnipeg Sun contest line at (204) 632-2603 by NO LATER than 5:00 PM the day the winning number is published to inform the Sun of your qualifying number and to provide contact information. By matching your number, you then qualify for the weekly draw. All qualifying contestants will be placed into a draw for the prize to be won for that week. In all cases, winners MUST PRESENT original physical verification of the matching number from page 2 of the paper as proof of their qualification before any prize will be awarded. In other words, please remember to save page 2 of the paper containing your matching number! No exceptions will be made. Without the original page 2 of your matching number, qualification is void and the prize will not be awarded. Should a person possess a matching number, the person’s name, phone number and qualifying number must be left with the contest line. Should your call to the contest line be directed to a message machine, leave your full name, address, phone number, and qualifying number. All calls are time stamped; messages with qualifying numbers recorded before 5:00 PM the day the qualifying numbers are published will be honored as qualifiers. Messages left AFTER 5:00 PM that day will not be accepted, even if the number left is a qualifying number. Please speak clearly when leaving a message. Unintelligible or incomplete messages will not be honored as qualifiers. People with qualifying numbers that do not win in the draw, are not carried forth to the following week. If for any reason the number fails to be printed on page 2 of the paper, or is printed illegibly, the Winnipeg Sun shall give no replacement. In addition, should the numbers that are to be drawn and published for the following day fail to appear within the pages of the paper, the numbers will be included in the following day’s paper.
