Players are solely responsible for any such wireless charges.     There is a limit of one play per person per day (as defined below) but if you play ten (10) consecutive days in a row, then on the tenth day you may play one (1) additional time on that same day (a “Bonus Play”).

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Game plays, when Game play occurs, the Award Time assigned to each prize, and the number of prizes.    All prizes will be awarded. In the event a prize is not awarded due to lack of play on or after an Award Time, or disqualification of a player, or the forfeiture of a prize or failure of a potential winner to accept any prize, or for any other reason provided in these Official Rules, then within ten (10) days after the end of the Play Period Sponsor shall randomly select the winner of such prize from amongst all eligible players playing the Game during the Game Period that have not been disqualified.    5.

A PLAYER IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE GAME DISPLAYS A WINNING MESSAGE, OR EVEN IF THE PLAYER RECEIVES AN EMAIL MESSAGE OR OTHER COMMUNICATION STATING THAT THE PLAYER HAS WON UNLESS AND UNTIL THE PLAYER’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND THE PLAYER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS.

Potential winners may also be required to complete, sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability and, unless prohibited by law, publicity release to Sponsor within the time indicated by Sponsor in the notification to the potential winner that such document(s) is/are required. Potential winners (and any travel companion where travel is awarded as a prize) may also be required to complete, sign and return a “Release of Liability, Voluntary Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement” to Sponsor within the time indicated by Sponsor in the notification to the potential winner that such document(s) is/are required. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules, including verification that the potential winner is twenty-one (21) years of age or older, the potential winner will be declared an official winner of the Game. If Sponsor cannot verify that the potential winner is twenty-one (21) years of age or older by the time specified by Sponsor, then the potential winner will be disqualified.     In the event of a potential winner’s failure to respond to any notification from Sponsor within the time indicated by the Sponsor in a notification, or failure to comply with any of the time deadlines herein for the signature and/or return of any required document(s), or failure to accept a prize within the time indicated by the Sponsor in a notification, then the potential prize winner will be disqualified. Any prize notification or prize returned to Sponsor or its agencies as undeliverable will result in disqualification.      Sponsor is not responsible for suspended or discontinued Internet, wireless, or land-line phone service, or a change in an entrant’s email address, phone number or mailing address (or if entry is allowed in these Official Rules via a social media platform, a change in the entrant’s social media account settings) which may result in a potential winner not receiving initial prize notification or prize information.   6.

All federal, state and other tax liabilities (including income taxes and withholding taxes) arising from each prize awarded in this Game will be the sole responsibility of each corresponding prize winner. The award of each prize with an ARV exceeding Six Hundred United States Dollars (US$600) will be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), as required by U.S. law using an IRS form 1099 and/or such other form(s) as are required by federal law. If applicable, Sponsor shall also report any winnings as required by applicable state law(s) using such form(s) as are required by applicable state law. Each winner subject to any such reporting requirements agrees that the ARV assigned to each prize herein and to be reported to the taxing authority is reasonable, and agrees not to dispute the amount of the ARV assigned to such prize.  In the event Sponsor is required by law to withhold U.S. federal or state withholding tax from any prize awarded (and pay such amount directly to the IRS or a state taxing authority), then Sponsor shall withhold any such amount and make such payment to the IRS and/or taxing authority to the extent sufficient cash is awarded as part of such prize. In that instance, if there is not sufficient cash available as part of the awarded prize to pay the entire withholding taxes required, then the prize winner shall be required to provide Sponsor with the funds sufficient to pay the required withholding taxes before the prize winner may receive the prize. If the prize winner in that instance fails to provide Sponsor with funds sufficient to pay the required withholding taxes within the deadline established by Sponsor, then the prize winner may be disqualified.  7.
