1. The Contest is open to all U.S. citizens and legal U.S. residents at least 21 years of age who reside in the The News On 6 Designated Market Area, as defined by Nielsen Media Research, Inc. ("DMA") except as otherwise provided in these or specific contest rules.

Only members of the River Spirit Players Club that have an Infinity Card are able to participate in all promotions and claim a prize.

Employees of River Spirit or Griffin Communications, L.L.C. and its affiliated parent and subsidiary companies, affiliated stations or companies, advertising and promotion agencies, sponsors, entities furnishing prizes or otherwise connected with the conduct of this Contest ("Contest Entities") and their respective officers, directors, representatives and agents, their immediate families and members of their households, are all ineligible and may not register for or participate in the Contest.

2. Only one prize may be awarded per household. Winners from other contests sponsored or conducted by Griffin Marketing Solutions, The News On 6, Radio Oklahoma Network or Griffin New Media within thirty (30) days preceding the beginning of this contest are not eligible for this contest.

3. How to win: KOTV viewers will log on to www.newson6.com and register to win a spot as the KOTV "Pinch Hitter" for River Spirit Casino's Thursday night PITCH-inko promotion. Once a guest has been registered, they will be entered in to the drawing taking place each Tuesday. The game consists of a prize board, resembling the Plinko game with 9 prize slots at the bottom of a pegged board. The prize slots consist of baseball language, which match up to a prize legend with cash amounts. See prize legend below:

STRIKE OUT= $0
GROUND OUT = $0
FLY OUT = $0
WALK = $100
SINGLE = $100

DOUBLE = $200
TRIPLE = $300
HOME RUN = $500
GRAND SLAM = $1,000

The KOTV "Pinch Hitter" will be allowed to drop 3 pucks and will receive the total dollar amount according to the prize legend. In the event the puck does not drop into a prize slot, it will be ruled a "Foul Ball" and the guest will get to drop another puck. If the contestant's amounts equal $0, the contestant will receive a consolation prize of $100 Rewards Play to be issued at Players Club.

At the conclusion of their 3 drops, the contestant will have the bonus option to drop an additional puck to either double their winnings by landing in any slot that is not an "out" or forfeit their winnings by landing in one of the "out" positions. *If the contestant receives the consolation prize they will not have the bonus option. If the KOTV "Pinch Hitter" is not checked in at Players Club by 8:00pm on the Thursday of the week they win or they forfeit their opportunity to play.
