www.tsingtaolunarnewyear.com in the @tsingtao_usa bio. You can also visit

provide your name, address, email address, and phone number. After submitting your information,
you will be taken to the game screen where you can click the “Spin” button to enter the
Sweepstakes (the “Submission.”). The game will randomly display on a digital slot machine three
images of various Tsingtao and Lunar New Year iconography in a row. A winning spin will consist
of three (3) images of the Tsingtao logo in a row without a product image. If a winning spin is
shown, the game will reveal a message that you are an Instant Winner and provide you with
information on how to obtain your prize. A spin resulting in any other combination of images is not
a winning spin.
No purchase is necessary to enter or win but an internet connection is required. A purchase of
beer will not improve chances of winning. There is a limit of one (1) entry (“Entry”) per person or
per email address every three (3) hours during the Sweepstakes Period. Any Entry made using
script, macro, or any devices intended to automate any aspect of participation will be disqualified
without notice. All entries must be received by the close of the Sweepstakes Period to be eligible
for the Grand Prize. All Entries become the property of the Sponsor.
DRAWING AND PRIZES
Sponsor will randomly select two (2) Instant Win winners (each an “Instant Winner”) each week
during the Sweepstakes Period. When your Submission is made, you will automatically receive
one of two messages letting you know if you are an Instant Winner or that you can try again in
three (3) hours. Instant Winner messages will provide further information regarding claiming the
Instant Win Prize. There will be a total of twelve (12) Instant Winners in the Sweepstakes.
Instant Win Prize. Each Instant Winner will win the following prize (each an “Instant Win Prize”):
one (1) Tsingtao branded 10-piece non-stick cooking set which includes a carbon steel wok and

$2,000.00. The ARV of all Prizes to be awarded is $3,200.00. The Odds of being an Instant
Winner or selected as the Grand Prize Winner will depend on the number of eligible entries
received during the Sweepstakes Period. Any and all other costs and expenses not specifically
mentioned herein including, but not limited to, all taxes, local transportation, additional hotel stay,
changes to reservations, fuel, insurance, meals not provided, beverages, gratuities, room service,
other services, upgrades, souvenirs, and personal expenses, are the sole responsibility of the
Grand Prize Winner and Guest to pay. No alcohol is being awarded as part of the Grand Prize.
An Instant Win Prize and the Grand Prize may also be referred to herein as a “Prize.” An Instant
Winner and the Grand Prize Winner may also be referred to herein as a “Winner.” All Prizes will
be awarded unless there is insufficient participation or if Sponsor cannot obtain from each Winner
satisfactory proof of age and residency in a timely manner, in which case all Prizes may not be
awarded and the odds of winning a Prize may change. All Winners are subject to confirmation of
eligibility. Winners will be notified by email. Instant Win Prizes will be shipped to Instant Winners
directly at no cost to them.
PRIZE CONDITIONS
There is a limit of one Instant Win Prize per person or per email address. Prizes are non-
transferable, cannot be sold or auctioned, and have no cash surrender value. The hotel room will
be reserved under the Grand Prize Winner’s name. The Grand Prize Winner will use one of the
two airline tickets. The Grand Prize Winner may select one (1) Guest to use the remaining airline
ticket. Grand Prize Winner and Guest must use the Prize on the same days/nights. All
components of the Grand Prize must be used in one trip and no refund or compensation will be
paid if the Grand Prize Winner does not use the entire Grand Prize as awarded. Grand Prize
Winner and Guest will each be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity

the Grand Prize and must be 21 years of age or older. If Sponsor does not receive personal
confirmation from the Grand Prize Winner of being selected as the Grand Prize Winner within
seven (7) days from Sponsor’s notification, or if the Grand Prize Winner (i) fails to complete or
return any requested documents by the date specified by the Sponsor, (ii) is found to be ineligible,
(iii) cannot use the Grand Prize on the dates indicated, or (iv) fails to comply with these Official
Rules, the Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected if time
permits. Once travel arrangements have been made, they cannot be changed. If the Grand Prize
Winner declines the Grand Prize for any reason (even after acceptance), the Grand Prize Winner
will be disqualified, and Sponsor will use reasonable efforts to continue to select a replacement
Grand Prize Winner as long as time permits, and the resulting delays do not affect the cost of the
Grand Prize. The acceptance or use of the Grand Prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use
