Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

INSTANT WIN GAME PRIZE SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: Instant Win Game Prizes will be awarded throughout the Promotion Period, pursuant to the process set forth herein. At the time a participant submits his/her completed registration form and each time that same participant provides his/her email addressed associated with his/her initial registration to receive additional Instant Win plays (subject to the requirements set forth above), if such participant is the first eligible participant to receive a play in connection with the Instant Win Game at or after a computer-generated, randomly selected winning time, that participant will receive an on-screen notification alerting them that they are a potential winner of an Instant Win Game Prize, subject to verification. Non-winning entrants will also be notified on screen.

Potential Instant Win Prize winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements in these Official Rules. All winning claims are subject to verification by the Administrator and/or Sponsor, whose decisions are binding. Even if the Instant Win Game shows that you are a winner, you are not a winner until your eligibility and the potential winning Instant Win Game play have been verified. Once verified, Instant Win Prizes will be mailed/emailed to the Instant Winner’s mailing/email address provided on the registration form within 45 days of on-screen notification. In the event that a potential Instant Win Prize winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate Instant Win Prize winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Instant Win Entries. Only one (1) alternate drawing will be held, after which any remaining Instant Win Prizes will remain un-awarded.

All potential INSTANT WIN prize WINNERS are subject to verification by Sponsor AND/or Administrator, whose decisions are final AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. A participant is not a winner of any INSTANT WIN Prize unless and until participant’s eligibility HAS been verified.

GRAND PRIZE RANDOM DRAWING & NOTIFICATION: On or about Monday, January 6, 2020, the Administrator will select one (1) potential Grand Prize winner in a random drawing from among all eligible Grand Prize Sweepstakes entries received during the Promotion Period. The Grand Prize winner will be notified via email on or about Monday, January 6, 2020, using the email address provided at the time of entry, and will be required to sign and return, within seven (7) days of email notification by the Administrator, an Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability Waiver, an IRS W-9 Form and where allowable, a Publicity Release (collectively, "the Releases"). These Releases will require the Grand Prize winner to furnish his/her Social Security Number for the sole purpose of tax reporting, as required by law. Travel companion of winner will also be required to sign a Travel Companion Liability & Publicity Release before any prize elements will be awarded or booked.

If a potential Grand Prize winner is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, the Grand Prize will be awarded in the name of the potential Grand Prize winner's parent or legal guardian who will be required to execute and return the Releases on minor’s behalf. If the notification is returned as undeliverable, or if a potential Grand Prize winner fails to complete and return the Releases within the timeframe specified in accordance with the requirements in these official rules and any instructions provided by Sponsor, or if the selected winner cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason, or in the event that a potential Grand Prize winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate Grand Prize winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Grand Prize Sweepstakes entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which any remaining prize will remain un-awarded.

potential grand prize WINNER IS subject to verification by Sponsor AND/or Administrator, whose decisions are final AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. A participant is not a winner of any Grand Prize unless and until participant’s eligibility HAS been verified and participant has been notified that verification is complete. Grand Prize will be awarded within 45 days after the Grand Prize winner is confirmed.

GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Limit one (1) Instant Win Prize per person. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. All prizes are non-assignable or transferable.

Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes or components of a prize(s). Only the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules is available to be won in the Promotion. If, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, winners will be determined in a random drawing from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims to award the advertised number of prizes available.

All travel related expenses not specifically listed as part of the Grand Prize, including but not limited to, ground transportation to and from home, taxes, gratuities, incidentals, upgrades, insurance, service charges, airport surcharges, departure taxes, hotel, resort or property fees, luggage fees, food & beverage and personal expenses such as telephone/Internet charges, and gift shop purchases are the sole responsibility of prize winner. Winner and travel companion must travel on same itinerary. Winner and travel companion must have valid photo ID and any other required documentation prior to departure. Travel is subject to availability and the limits set forth below. Trip must be booked 2 months in advance and is only available through December 31, 2020.

Sponsor will, in its sole discretion, determine departure airport.

The Grand Prize winner and his/her travel companion are responsible for obtaining any travel insurance (and all other forms of insurance) that they may wish to obtain (at their own expense) and hereby acknowledge that the Sponsor has not and will not obtain or provide travel insurance or any other form of insurance.

Photo identification and credit card or cash deposit may be required at any time for incidental charges (e.g., room service, use of telephone/IT services, laundry and all other optional extra services not provided in the Grand Prize). If Grand Prize winner elects to travel or partake in the Grand Prize with no travel companion, no additional compensation will be awarded. All hotel reservations are based on availability and all holidays are excluded. Accommodations are subject to availability at time of reservation. Blackout dates, advance booking requirements and travel restrictions may apply. Availability is subject to factors such as weather, seasonality and space availability. Reservations are subject to availability. If weather or other incident or conditions beyond the control of the Sponsor affects the ability for winner and his/her travel companion to redeem any portion of prize during the scheduled date and time, then the Sponsor shall have no further obligation to the winner and/or travel companion other than to supply the remaining elements of the prize package minus the unused portion of prize. Sponsor shall not be responsible for any cancellations, delays, diversions or substitution or any act or omissions whatsoever by the air carriers, hotels, venue operators, transportation companies, prize providers or any other persons providing any prize-related services or accommodations. Sponsor is not liable for expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation or delay of any transportation or other prize element except at the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor. If for any reason whatsoever, winner and/or travel companions are unable to travel after all travel arrangements have been made and paid, the Sponsor shall have no further obligation to the winner. If Grand Prize is forfeited prior to Sponsor finalizing and paying for travel, and there is sufficient time to notify an alternate winner, the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner in a separate random drawing from among all non-winning eligible entries. Winner and travel companion are responsible for obtaining the proper travel documentation (e.g., valid photo ID, see https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification for more details) prior to travel. Winner’s travel companion must be a legal U.S. resident, 21 years or older, unless Travel Companion is a child of the winner.

If winner’s travel companion is deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, Grand Prize winner must be minor travel companion’s parent or legal guardian and must execute the Travel Companion Liability Release on the minor travel companion’s behalf, as applicable.

In the event a winner or his/her travel companion engages in behavior that, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion, is obnoxious or threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the trip early, whole or in part, and send the winner and his/her travel companion home with no further obligation. In the event a winner engages in behavior during travel that (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) is illegal, tortious, or subjects winner to arrest or detention, Sponsor shall have no obligation to pay any damages, fees, fines, judgments or other costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever incurred by winner as a result of such conduct. RELEASED PARTIES SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURIES, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR OTHER DAMAGES OR EXPENSES RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF ANY TRAVEL RELATED TO THE PRIZE OR ANY OTHER ASPECT OF GRAND PRIZE WINNER’S ACCEPTANCE OR USE OF THE PRIZE.

GOVERNING LAW AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules or the rights and obligations of entrants, Sponsor or the Released Parties in connection with the Promotion will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the application of any other laws.

BY ENTERING THE PROMOTION, ENTRANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE PROMOTION, OR ANY PRIZE AWARDED, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (B) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY) NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (C) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY ENTRANT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND ENTRANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (D) ENTRANTS’ REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND ENTRANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF.

In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Promotion shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in San Joaquin County, California. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in San Joaquin County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing).
