5. INSTANT WIN GAME PRIZESELECTION AND VERIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNER
Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Instant Win Game and the selection of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Instant Win Game. There will be ten (10) random, computer-generated winning times during the Promotion Period. If you are the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one of the randomly-generated times, you will be a potential instant winner of the prize indicated. If a Canadian resident, the potential winner will be required to correctly answer a time-limited skill testing question without any assistance in order to be eligible to receive a prize. If the potential winner is a Canadian resident and the question is answered incorrectly, the prize will be forfeited. If you joined the Microsoft Store SMS Program, a link to the skills testing question will be sent via text message to the mobile phone number that the consumer provided at registration. If any potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to provide any requested information within the required time period (if applicable), potential winner forfeits the prize. If any potential winner cannot be contacted or if prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the applicable prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Instant Win Game.

violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to
