IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL "PRO FOOTBALL PICKS" PARTICIPANTS AND FANS: We recently learned from the State of Montana Department of Justice, headed by the Attorney General's office, that the "Pro Football Picks" promotional contest may be void and prohibited in Montana because the grand prize for the winner would be a free trip to Hawaii and viewers can register and submit their weekly picks on-line or through social media. The State notified us that Montana forbids prizes for Pick-the-Winner contests that exceed $100. We were also told that Internet registration and participation is prohibited without State approval. As a result, we have had to suspend the "Pro Football Picks" contest until further notice. KRTV and KXLH will be following up with state authorities.
We truly regret any inconvenience for our viewers and will keep you informed as we learn more. If you have questions about the restrictions placed on your opportunity to participate in Pick-the-Winner contests this football season, you can contact the state's Department of Justice (email@example.com) or your local state senator or representative.
