MAIL-IN ENTRIES ARE NOT ACCEPTED FOR THIS PROMOTION. All entries become the exclusive property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned except as provided herein. Entries which are incomplete, incorrect, incomprehensible, not received, or do not otherwise comply with these Official Rules will be void and will not be entered into the Promotion’s prize drawing. Entries made by any other manner not specifically allowed under these Official Rules will not be entered into the Promotion and may result in disqualification of the responsible entrant. You are not a winner until your prize claim is validated and you receive official written notification from the Sponsor or the Promotion Administrator. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be declared made by the person in whose name entry was made.

4. Grand Prize Drawing and Odds: On or about May 22, 2017, the Promotion Administrator will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the entire Promotion Period from all URLs. One entrant (the “Finalist”) will be selected. Odds of being selected as the Finalist will depend on the number of entries received. Finalist will then be entered into a Grand Prize event drawing, where Finalist will have a 1:250 chance of winning the Grand Prize. The process for random selection for the grand prize event drawing shall be determined solely by the Administrator. Further, the final date and location of the Grand Prize event drawing are subject to Sponsor’s discretion. If Finalist does not win the Grand Prize, it will not be awarded, and Finalist Guaranteed Prize will be awarded.

5. Prizes, Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) & Odds: One (1) Grand Prize: One million dollars ($1,000,000) to be paid as an annuity of $25,000 per year, for forty (40) years, without interest (ARV based on present value: $565,280). Grand Prize will be awarded, only if the Finalist wins the Grand Prize Event Drawing, as described above. If Finalist does not win the Grand Prize, Finalist will instead receive the Finalist Guaranteed Prize of $5,000.

Total ARV of all prizes, based on present value, is up to $565,280. Winner may be required to provide a photo for use by Sponsor. No substitution, cash redemption or transfer of prizes is permitted except at Sponsor’s sole discretion or as provided herein. If a prize, or any portion thereof, cannot be awarded for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. All federal, state and local taxes, and all other costs associated with acceptance or use of the prize(s), are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). Arrangements for delivery of prize(s) will be made after winner validation. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of entries received. Odds of the Finalist winner receiving the million dollar prize is 1:250. By accepting the annuity, the Grand Prize winner agrees to release the Promotion Parties from all liability and responsibility for payments of the prize and acknowledges that such liability and responsibility shall rest only with the annuity company from which the annuity is purchased for the winner. Prizes will be awarded only to an address within the Territory provided they are claimed properly in accordance with these Official Rules

The return of any notification as undeliverable or failure to respond to notices or return any required documents or information in a timely manner or a determination that a potential winner is ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, as determined solely by the Promotion Administrator, may result in disqualification of the winner and forfeiture of the corresponding prize, and the choosing of an alternate winner in a random drawing from among the remaining eligible entries.
