Spins are used to spin the game wheel (the “Game Wheel”) for a chance to earn Prize entries (each an “Entry”). Each Spin entitles you to one (1) spin of the Game Wheel. When you spin the Game Wheel, you will randomly land on either one (1) game piece (each a “Game Piece”) or a free spin icon awarding you with an extra Spin (the “Free Spin Icon”). There are fifteen (15) Game Pieces and one (1) Free Spin Icon on the Game Wheel. Each Game Piece corresponds to one of the Prizes (defined below). To receive one (1) Entry into one of the Prizes, you must collect all Game Pieces associated with that particular Prize. For example, there are five (5) Game Pieces associated with one (1) Entry for the Grand Prize. If you successfully collect all five (5) Game Pieces, you will automatically receive one (1) Entry for the Grand Prize. You may continue to spin the Game Wheel until you have run out of Spins or the close of the Sweepstakes Entry Period, whichever occurs first.
Limit of two hundred forty-eight (248) Spins per person, per email address during the Sweepstakes Entry Period regardless of method of entry. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of Spins by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s Spins and that participant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
5. Winner Selection
On or about September 8, 2021, the Administrator will select entries for each Prize described below in a random drawing of all valid entries received for that specific prize. The selected entrants will be contacted using the email address provided with their registration (as determined in Sponsor’s discretion) and may be awarded the Prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules). Potential winners will be notified approximately one (1) day after the applicable drawing. Failure by an entrant to respond to the initial verification contact within five (5) days of notification or return of e-mail notification as undeliverable after three (3) attempts may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, result in disqualification and Administrator or Sponsor may select an alternate winner in the same manner. If any winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected. Odds of winning a Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the specific Prize drawing. Limit of one (1) Prize per person for the Sweepstakes.
6. Verification of Potential Winner
The potential Prize winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential Prize winners may be required to sign and return to Sponsor, within five (5) days of the date notice is sent, a Declaration of Compliance, Liability & Publicity Release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her Prize if applicable. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, potential Prize winner fails to sign and return the Declaration of Compliance, Liability & Publicity Release within the required time period (if applicable), or if the Prize or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits Prize. If a potential winner of a Prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable Prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
