HOW TO ENTER:
No purchase required to play. During the Promotion Period, access /kroger/megacheesy
(“Website”) and sign in to your digital account tied to your participating Shopper’s Card (“account”). If you do not have an account, follow the instructions to register online or sign up in-store and then create an online account at your participating Kroger Co. Family of Stores retailer website. Creating an account is free. After signing in you will be taken to a landing page with instructions on how to play the “Mega Cheesy Ball Scratch and Match” Game for a chance to win a prize. The Game consists of nine (9) separate Cheetos balls. To play the Game, scratch and match three (3) Cheetos balls (“Game Play”). If your scratch and match reveals three (3) matching Cheetos shapes you will be a potential instant winner of an instant win prize indicated in the Prize section below (“Instant Win” prize). Each Game Play is considered one “entry.” Prizes are seeded by time of day, which determines whether or not a winning or non-winning message is displayed on the screen after a Game Play. If your Game Play is the first to occur at or after one of the randomly-generated winning times, you will be a potential instant winner of an instant win prize indicated in the Prize section below (“Instant Win” prize). If multiple Game Plays are received at exactly the same winning time, the Website will randomly select which of the Game Plays is the winning Game Play for that winning time. If you are an Instant Win prize winner, you will instantly see an on-screen message indicating that you have won (subject to verification) an Instant Win prize and identifying the prize. You must have three (3) matching Cheetos shapes and winner message must appear in order to be considered a winning Game Play. Any other scenario does not constitute a winning Game Play. If you are an Instant Win prize winner, follow the instructions to add the prize to your account. If you are not a winner, the on-screen message will indicate that you did not win.
Limit one Game Play/entry per person/household/Shopper’s Card account per day (as defined above) across all banners.
