No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. ALL POTENTIAL WINNING INSTANT WIN GAME PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A "SCREEN SHOT" IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF A WINNING INSTANT WIN GAME PLAY AND/OR INSTANT WIN PRIZE. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY INSTANT WIN PRIZE, EVEN IF THE WEBSITE SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING INSTANT WIN GAME PLAY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND SAID ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.

5. How to Claim Instant Prize:

Upon receiving your Instant Win Prize message informing you that you are a potential winner, Sponsor will automatically ship your Instant Win Prize to the address provided at the time of entry. Allow 6-8 weeks for shipment of the Instant Win Prize. One (1) computer generated winning time will be randomly generated for each Instant Win prize available. If you are the first person to participate at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a potential winner of the prize indicated, subject to verification of eligibility. If you receive a message that contains any message other than a winning prize message, you are not a prize winner. Odds of winning an Instant Win prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received and the time and date upon which they are entered. Limit of one (1) Instant Win Prize per Entrant per calendar month for a total of nine (9) total Instant Win Prizes per Entrant during the Promotion Period.

6. First Prize Drawing:

At the conclusion of each calendar month during the Promotion Period, one (1) potential First Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing to be conducted by Administrator from among all eligible entries received during the previous calendar month. Non-winning entries will roll over to subsequent First Prize drawings, if any. The potential First Prize Winners will be notified by email or telephone (provided at time of Entry), on or about the day of the First Prize Drawing. Failure of a First Prize Winner to respond to the notification email or telephone message within seven (7) days, or a return of message notification as undeliverable after three (3) attempts will result in disqualification and an alternate First Prize Winner may be selected by random drawing of remaining eligible Entries. A maximum of three (3) alternate First Prize Winners will be selected for each First Prize after which such First Prize in question will remain unawarded. Odds of winning the First Prize depend on the number of eligible Entries received during each corresponding calendar month. Limit of one (1) First Prize per Entrant during the Promotion Period.

7. How to Claim a First Prize:

Before any First Prize is awarded, each potential First Prize Winner must complete, sign, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release and, where lawful, a Publicity Release (collectively, “Affidavit and Release”) within three (3) days after notification. If the Affidavit and Release are not signed and returned prior to the time deadline indicated in the documents, or if a First Prize Winner does not meet eligibility criteria set forth in these Official Rules, or is otherwise unwilling or unable to comply with these Official Rules, or cannot be contacted within seven (7) days of the First Prize Drawing date, an alternate winner will be selected by Administrator by random drawing from among the remaining eligible Entries.

Failure of a Grand Prize Winner to respond to the notification email or telephone message within seven (7) days, or a return of message notification as undeliverable after three (3) attempts will result in disqualification and an alternate potential Grand Prize Winner may be selected in a random drawing from among the remaining eligible Entries. Odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible Entries received throughout the Promotion Period.

9. How to Claim Grand Prize:

Before any Grand Prize is awarded, the potential Grand Prize Winner must complete, sign, and return an Affidavit and Release within three (3) days after notification.

In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
