  1. ENTRY TERMS: Any Entries received in excess of the preceding entry limits for a participant will be disqualified. Any attempt by a participant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries as per the applicable limit by using multiple or different email addresses or identities (or any other artifice or device) will void all of that participant’s Entries and that participant will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes.  If more than the stated number of Entries as per the applicable limit are received from any one (1) person or email address, only the first Entry will be considered a valid Entry and all other Entries will be disqualified.  In the event of a dispute over the identity of a participant, the Entry will be deemed submitted by the Authorized Account Holder of the email address submitted at time of Entry.  “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to the email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses or the domain associated with the submitted email address.  If a dispute cannot be resolved to the Sponsor’s satisfaction, the Entry will be deemed ineligible.  Only eligible Entries actually received by Sponsor before the Closing Date will be included in the Sweepstakes drawing.

Participation in this Sweepstakes by mobile device means that entrant understands that he or she may receive additional text messages from Sponsor or Administrator relating to this Sweepstakes as well as text messages relating to future offers if entrant elects to “opt-in” (see “Entrant’s Personal Information,” below).  Entrant further understands that any such text messages will be subject to the charges imposed by entrant’s carrier’s rate plan.  Proof of sending (such as a “thanks for entering” reply message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Administrator of an entry for purposes of this Sweepstakes.  Only eligible Entries actually received by Administrator before the Closing Date will be included in the Sweepstakes drawing.

  2. WINNER SELECTION: On or around January 3, 2019, a random drawing will be held from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period to select one (1) “Grand Prize Winner,” ten (10) “Second Place Prize Winners,” and twenty-five (25) “Third Place Prize Winners” (collectively, “Prize Winners.”). The drawing will be conducted by Administrator, and Administrator’s decisions will be final in all matters pertaining to the random drawing.  The potential Prize Winners will be subject to verification by Sponsor or Administrator of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  The potential Prize Winners will be required to sign and return to the Administrator an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability and Publicity Release (where permitted) (“Affidavit”) after each Prize Winner is notified that she/he is a potential Prize Winner.  The potential Grand Prize Winner must also identify his/her intended guest, and that guest will be required to sign and return Affidavit.  The potential Prize Winners and the Grand Prize Winner’s guest must sign and return Affidavit within a timely manner, as stipulated by the Administrator.  An entrant is not a winner of any prize until entrant’s eligibility as a Prize Winner has been verified, entrant has been notified that verification is complete, and entrant has complied with the terms and conditions of these Official Rules.
  3. WINNER NOTIFICATION/ODDS OF WINNING: A representative of Administrator will notify each potential Prize Winner by email and/or telephone―at the same email and/or telephone number through which the text entry was received or at the email and/or home phone number provided on the online or mailed entry. Three attempts will be made within a one 24-hour period to contact each potential Prize Winner. If any potential Prize Winner does not respond to Administrator within the 24-hour allotted time period, Administrator will randomly select an alternate potential Prize Winner, and the same process will be repeated until all the Prize Winners are contacted and all the Prizes are awarded.  Sponsor is not responsible for contacting a participant if that participant has changed contact information and failed to provide Sponsor or the Administrator with the proper contact information when such information is required.  At the sole discretion of the Sponsor or Administrator, forfeiture of any of the Prizes and the selection of an alternate Prize Winner may result from any of the following: (a) a potential Prize Winner’s failure to respond to notification within the specified response period; (b) a potential Prize Winner’s failure to provide Administrator with satisfactory proof of age, identity, and residence; or (c) any non-compliance with these Official Rules.

The odds of winning any Prize depends on the total number of eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
