DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION. Sponsor will

and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected from the remaining eligible entries
received during the Sweepstakes Period, if time permits. Odds of winning depend
on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
The Sponsor will continue to select alternate Potential Winner(s) in the manner
set forth above until all remaining Prize(s) (as defined below) have been
awarded. If Sponsor is unable to determine and verify a Potential Winner after ten
(10) alternate drawings or if Sponsor fails to receive sufficient
number of eligible entries to correspond to the number of remaining
un-awarded Prize(s), Sponsor reserves the right to not award the remaining
Prize(s) and end the Sweepstakes.

be able to provide proof that such Potential Winner is eligible to be deemed a Winner
to Sponsor’s satisfaction. If the documents are not returned within that timeframe,
