will randomly select each potential Sweepstakes winner on or around April 20, 2020 from all
eligible entries received for each applicable Sweepstakes Prize Package. Instant Win Game:
Thirty-one thousand (31,000) random, computer-generated winning times, one for each prize
listed below, will be generated during the Promotion Period, one thousand (1,000) winning times
will be generated per day. If you are the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one

7. ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR OR
ADMINISTRATOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS
RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF
THE INSTANT WIN GAME OR SWEEPSTAKES SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND
UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY, AND THE POTENTIAL INSTANT WIN GAME WINNER
AND/OR SWEEPSTAKES WINNER HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN
NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN
SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY
PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A
DEFECTIVE PLAY, IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.
8. Verification of Potential Sweepstakes and Instant Win Game Winners: Receiving a prize is
contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. Each potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize
winner will be notified by email. Each potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner (parent/legal
guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return a
Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release which must be received by
Administrator, within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim
the prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and return the
Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release or provide any other requested
information within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable or
if a potential winner is otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, potential winner
forfeits the prize. In the event that a potential winner of a prize valued over $25 is disqualified for
any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing
from among all remaining eligible Sweepstakes entries received. There will be three (3) alternate
drawings after which the prize will remain unawarded. Unclaimed prizes valued at $25 or less will
go unawarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the
