In the Rules & Regulation there's this paragraph:

"Other Rules and Regulations: In order to win, the selected entrant must first correctly answer, unaided, a time-limited, mathematical, skill-testing question to be administered by telephone, and he or she will be required to sign a standard Declaration and Release Form confirming compliance with the Contest Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded and releasing Crown Verity from all liability relating to the Contest."

What exactly would that mean do you think? I'm not a real mathematically inclined person and probably would fail a "skill-testing" question if it pertained to Calculus, Geometry or such...

Otherwise I'm all over it!!! Cheers!!!

This may have something to do with local laws covering lotteries and other things. Britain, I think, has a law covering all contests requiring a "Skill" question. I would assume something like "What is two plus two?"

They are based in Canada, so maybe that is the case. I will find out.

Actually, I like the looks of it better than similarly priced Viking grills. AND...























I still own a gas smoker...that I do use on occasion...shhhhhhhhhhh:-D

I was told it is to circumvent some old Canadian sweepstakes laws and that it is a simple problem that no adult should have a problem with.

ColdFyre 02-06-2013 12:07 PM

I was told there'd be no math!

No way man! I'm gonna complain if so. It should be something requiring some tensor calculus at least. I'm all over this one. :tongue:

deguerre 02-06-2013 12:18 PM

I'm afraid linear algebra did me in...
