hundred (600) 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 any potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to provide any
requested information within the required time period, 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 prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-
10 weeks after the conclusion of the Instant Win Game.
