Enter via text message:
Using the text messaging feature on your cellular telephone, send a text message to 515151 with only the Code Word in the body of the message. All entrants must have a text messaging two-way capable handset and digital service in order to enter the Sweepstakes using the text messaging method. Entrants will be sent a text message to confirm or reject entry into the Sweepstakes. Text-message entries may be subject to fees under the terms of the entrant’s cell-phone/text messaging subscription plan (contact your carrier for pricing plans and details). Text messaging and wireless services are not available in all areas. If any dispute arises as to the identity of any text message entrant, the entrant will be considered the authorized account holder by the cellular provider. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned a number by the cellular provider or as shown on the cellular provider’s records or the natural person authorized to use the number by an entity that is shown on cellular provider’s records for that number. Only entries to the designated number and containing the correct Code Word will be eligible.


Enter online:
Go to, and accurately complete and submit the online entry form. You must provide all information requested on the entry form, including the Code Word, your name and telephone number. You must also have a valid email account in order for your entry to be eligible. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. If there is a dispute regarding the identity of an online entrant, the holder of the email account will be deemed the person who submitted the entry.

Conditions applicable to all entries:
There will be a different Code Word in each Episode listed above. Each Code Word is valid until 11:59:59 p.m. on February 8, 2019. Entries containing incorrect Code Words or no Code Words at all will be disqualified. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entry at any time that in Sponsor’s opinion does not comply with these Official Rules. Copies or other mechanical reproductions, facsimiles, entries containing technical or electronic reproductions, entries containing attached files are not eligible and will be rejected. Received entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned or acknowledged.  Limit one entry per person per Code Word, regardless of method of entry, for a total of up to four entries per person. Additional entries from the same person for a given Code Word will be disqualified if discovered by Sponsor.  Sponsor is not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misaddressed or misdirected due to technical or computer failures, errors or data loss of any kind, lost or unavailable internet connections, or failed incomplete, garbled or deleted computer or networks transmissions, inability to access the website or online service, unavailability of phone lines or connections or cellular phone service, or any other technical error or malfunction.

This Sweepstakes is open only to legal U.S. residents who reside within the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, Kern and Inyo in California, who are 18 years of age or older as of their date of entry, and who have not won any other prize from KTLA within the 60 days prior to the end of the Sweepstakes Period.  Employees of other media companies (including radio and television stations), Sponsor and its parent corporations, subsidiaries, or affiliates, and such employees’ immediate family or household members are not eligible to enter or win the Sweepstakes.



After the entry period has concluded, all entries submitted for all Code Words will be combined into a single pool and one winner will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries. The drawing will take place on or about February 11, 2019. Sponsor will attempt to notify the winner that they have been selected as a winner by telephone or by email.

The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received in the Sweepstakes. If the selected winner is not eligible, fails to give the correct Code Word, declines the prize, does not provide required identification or sign and return required documents by the deadlines established by Sponsor, or does not respond within 24 hours of the initial notification attempt (including, but not limited to, failure to return a phone call from Sponsor), the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner randomly selected by Sponsor from all remaining eligible entries (time permitting).


The winner will receive a VISA gift card redeemable for up to $500 in goods and services anywhere VISA is accepted as a form of payment.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a gift card of equal value from a different financial-services provider brand.

The approximate retail value of the winner’s prize is $500.


All federal, state, and local taxes associated with the prize, as well as all other costs or expenses involved in obtaining the prize, are the responsibility of the winner. Prize is awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, expressed or implied, being provided by Sponsor.


Sponsor, nor any of its parent or subsidiary companies (collectively “Releasees”), are responsible for any changes to any element of the prize, and Releasees are not liable for any expenses incurred as a result of changes.

The prize – whether considered as a whole or in part — is not replaceable if lost, stolen, or destroyed, not transferable or redeemable for cash, may not be sold or traded, and may not be substituted for another prize, except at the sole discretion of Sponsor, which may substitute a prize of equal or greater value, or as provided in these Official Rules.

Sponsor will post notice of its action on the Sweepstakes website.  Sponsor reserves the right to prohibit any entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes if, at its sole discretion, Sponsor finds such entrant to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, or if such entrant shows a disregard for, or attempts to circumvent, these Official Rules, or acts: (a) in a manner Sponsor determines to be not fair or equitable; (b) in an annoying, threatening or harassing manner; or (c) in any other disruptive manner.
