A random drawing will be conducted on or about April 20th, 2021 by Promoter to select a winning Team (each member of such Team hereby referred to as a “Winner”) from among all eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received.
The potential Winner will be notified by email and must sign and return Promoter’s Affidavit of Eligibility and Release within three (3) days’ following the effective date of Promoter’s prize notification (the “Notification”). Failure to respond within the applicable time period will result in forfeiture of the prize and Promoter shall have the option to award the Prize to an alternate Team. The return of the Notification or Prize as undeliverable may also result in disqualification and an alternate Winner may be selected. Promoter is not responsible for digital communications that are undeliverable as a result of any filtering of any kind, insufficient space in a Participant’s account, or any other failure beyond its reasonable control.
In the event of a dispute with respect to entries received from more than one user having the same e-mail address/account, the authorized subscriber of the account in question at the time of entry will be deemed the proper entrant. A potential Winner will also forfeit his or her Prize if he or she is disqualified as not eligible to have participated in the Sweepstakes in the first instance.
The Winner must show a government-issued photo identification to claim his or her Prize. All federal, state, and local income taxes resulting from acceptance of the Prize are the responsibility of Winner.

Participant agrees to execute any document reasonably required by Promoter to effectuate the terms hereof and failure to do so shall give rise to Promoter’s right to execute any and all such documents as Participant’s attorney-in-fact, which right shall be coupled with an interest and therefore, irrevocable.
