The Promotion consists of daily instant win sweepstakes (“Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes”). For each Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes offered throughout the Promotion Period, one (1) prize winner (each a “Winner”) will be randomly selected from among all eligible entries received, as set forth more fully below. Game Show Network, LLC (“Sponsor”), reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to end the Promotion Period before February 5, 2023. Entry in the Promotion does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Promotion, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, located at 2150 Colorado Avenue, Suite 100, Santa Monica, California 90404, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
Eligibility: Only legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry are eligible to enter. Those persons who are involved with the development, production or distribution of the Promotion, or the supplying of prizing therefor, along with the officers, directors and employees of Sponsor, Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, divisions, and affiliates, (all such individuals and entities referred to collectively as the “Promotion Entities”), and the immediate family members of and those living in the same household (whether related or not) as any of the individuals in the preceding categories, and any person whose access to www.GSNTV.com and/or www.gameshownetwork.com has been terminated or suspended, are not eligible to enter the Promotion or win a prize. This Promotion is void where prohibited.
How To Enter: To obtain an entry during the Promotion Period, participants will need to visit the link located at https://www.gameshownetwork.com/games/master-minds-trivia-challenge (the “Website”) and follow the instructions to play the Instant Win Trivia Challenge (“Instant Win Trivia Challenge”) and complete the online entry form located on the Website. Each day during the Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes Entry Period, a new trivia question (“Trivia Question”) will be posted on the Website. Once a participant answers the Trivia Question and completes the entry form, the Game Show Network results screen (“Results Screen”) will reveal if the participant is a potential Winner, subject to verification and compliance with these Official Rules. The Results Screen will also reveal the correct answer to the Trivia Question. Participants who answer the Trivia Question and complete the entry form will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes. Participants may receive a maximum of one (1) entry per day (up to a maximum of twenty-eight (28) total entries during the Promotion Period). All entries must be received by the end of the applicable Sweepstakes Entry Period in order to participate. All required information on the entry form must be completed to enter and be eligible to win.
The Instant Win results will be instantly displayed on the “Master Minds” Results Screen. Potential Winners of an Instant Win prize will be provided directions for validation and prize redemption.
All potential Winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. Approximately twenty-eight (28) Instant Win prizes will be available during the Promotion Period. The time of entry will determine whether participant is a potential Winner in the Instant Win Trivia Challenge. All prizes in the Instant Win Trivia Challenge are randomly seeded at designated winning times (each, a “Winning Time”) throughout each day during the Promotion Period. The first person to enter after a randomly designated Winning Time will be the potential Winner of the seeded prize. If multiple participants login at the exact same Winning Time, the potential Winner will be determined by a random selection of all participants who successfully entered at that time. All required information on the entry form must be completed to enter via the Website and be eligible to win. Limit one (1) Instant Win entry per day and up to twenty-eight (28) entries during the Promotion Period. A day is defined as starting at approximately 12:00:01 a.m. PT on or about Monday, January 9, 2023 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. PT on Monday, January 9, 2023. The second day begins at approximately 12:00:01 a.m. PT on Tuesday, January 10, 2023 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. The remaining days will begin at approximately 12:00:01 a.m. ET on each day during the Promotion Period and end at 11:59:59 p.m. PT on the same day (each, a “Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes Entry Period”). The Website’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Promotion. Entry must be made by the entrant, only as set forth herein. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Promotion. Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion, the Trivia Challenge, the Sweepstakes or the Website, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Promotion. The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.
Winner Notification: The potential Winners will be notified by telephone and/or email using the contact information provided at the time of entry. Sponsor shall have no liability for any Winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential Winner for any reason. Time is of the essence in awarding each prize. As a result, if, despite reasonable efforts, a potential Winner does not respond within three (3) days of the first notification attempt (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential Winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate Winner may be selected. If any potential Winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Winner may be selected. Sponsor will successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential Winners of the prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed Winner of the prize in question after such attempts have been made, the prize may go unawarded.
Prizes/Odds: Up to twenty-eight (28) Instant Win prizes are available. Each Instant Win prize Winner will receive either one (1) “Master Minds” branded t-shirt or one (1) “Master Minds” branded baseball cap (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) at an approximate retail value (“ARV”) of Twenty Dollars ($20) per Winner. Actual odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Daily Instant Win Sweepstakes Entry Period. Limit one (1) prize per person during the Promotion Period. The total ARV of all prizes is Six Hundred Dollars ($600).

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Promotion if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Promotion is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Promotion as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are received and/or Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Promotion as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to, fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic or pandemic of health of other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal, state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend or terminate the Promotion. If the Promotion, or any part of it, is discontinued for any reason, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible non-suspect entries received up to the date of the event giving rise to the discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with the law by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
Governing Law/Jurisdiction: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROMOTION SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OF CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S OR COUNTRY’S LAWS.
Arbitration Provision: By participating in this Promotion, each entrant agrees that (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) the entrant may have against the Promotion Entities arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Promotion, the awarding or redemption of any prize and/or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in Los Angeles, California; (4) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Official Rules and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable participant may have entered into in connection with the Promotion; (5) the arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only the entrant’s and/or the applicable Promotion Entities’ individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against the entrant or any Promotion Entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any Promotion Entity exceed $125 USD, and the entrant is unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Sponsor agrees to pay them and/or forward them on the entrant’s behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if entrant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of entrant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither entrant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
