INSTANT WIN GAME PRIZE SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: Instant Win Game Prizes will be awarded throughout the Promotion Period, pursuant to the process set forth herein. 1,600 random, computer-generated winning dates and times, one for each Instant Win Prize available to be won, will be generated by the Administrator prior to launch. At the time a participant submits his/her First Time Registration Entry and each time that same participant provides his/her Returning Entry to receive additional Instant Win Game 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 Prize. 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 sent to the winner via email or text, depending on the winner’s preference selected on his/her registration form, within two (2) weeks 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 entries received after the Promotion ends. 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 Tuesday, September 3, 2019, the Administrator will select four (4) potential Grand Prize winners in a random drawing from among all eligible Grand Prize Sweepstakes entries received during the Promotion Period. The Grand Prize winners will be notified via email on or about Thursday, September 5, 2019, 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. 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 cannot be contacted in person via email after the first attempt to contact him/her, 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 two (2) alternate drawings will be held, after which any remaining prize will remain un-awarded.

If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Baltimore, Maryland. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration.
