6. METHOD OF AWARD:
The winner of the Grand Prize will be determined in the following manner, which includes (i) determining if an entrant’s unique prize identifying number matches the pre-selected winner number, and (ii) a skill-testing question:
A. PRE-SELECTED ENTRY NUMBER:
Recipients of this promotional offer, which may include through mail, internet, telephone or mobile media, will be allocated a unique prize identifying number (an "Entry Number") within a 50,000,000 number range. One number in the 50,000,000 number range has been pre-selected, and is recorded in a secured manner with a fiduciary agent. If an Entrant’s Entry Number exactly matches the pre-selected winning number, the Entrant will then have to correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question (as specified below) to be deemed the potential Sweepstakes winner. If no one Entrant claims an Entry Number within the Sweepstakes Period that exactly matches the pre-selected winning number, or if the Entrant who did claim the matching Entry Number fails to provide the correct answer to the skill-testing question and/or fulfill all of the Winner Requirements (which will result in their entry being declared void), then a random drawing will be held within 60 days after the Sweepstakes Period and a winner will be randomly selected from all of the remaining eligible Entries received. This process will be repeated until a Grand Prize winner is declared.
B. SKILL-TESTING QUESTION:
The entrant whose entry number matches the pre-selected winning number or who is selected through a random drawing, whichever is applicable, will be required to correctly answer a time limited mathematical skill-testing question without any assistance in order to be deemed the potential prize winner. The skill-testing question will be presented to the selected entrant along with instructions on how to submit his/her answer.
Promotion is under the supervision of a transparent and impartial agency ("Sweepstakes Agency"), whose decisions are final.
The odds of receiving or being assigned the Entry Number which has been pre-selected for the Grand Prize are 1:50,000,000. If a random drawing is required to determine the winner of the Grand Prize, then the odds of winning will depend on the total number of Entry Numbers validly registered by the entry deadline (see “Method of Award”).
8. WINNER REQUIREMENTS:
Sponsor will notify the potential winner by phone, regular mail, or e-mail within ten (10) days of a number match determination or within ten (10) days of a random draw should this event be required. If a potential winner does not respond within thirty (30) days after the first attempt to contact him/her, or the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, that potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize, and Sponsor will select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from all eligible Entries received. Alternate potential winner must satisfy all eligibility requirements.
Except where prohibited, the potential winner Entrant will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the “Affidavit/Release”) within thirty (30) days of being notified. If the potential winner Entrant fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, an alternate Entrant will be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all eligible entries received.
