5. Winner Selection and Notification: On or about February 5, 2018, there will be one (1) Grand Prize winner randomly selected from among all eligible entries received by representatives of Sponsor that correctly answer the two (2) questions presented in Sponsor’s Facebook post based on the final game results. In the event that no entrant answers both questions correctly, the one (1) Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected from among all eligible entries received by representatives of Sponsor that correctly selected the winning team and came closest (without going over) to predicting the actual total points scored during the Big Game. The odds of winning a prize depend upon the total number of eligible entries received and the accuracy of entrants’ predictions. The potential winner will be notified via direct message to his/her platform account promptly after selection. Sponsor may also post the name of the potential winner on one or more of its social media accounts. The selected potential winner will be required to respond to the notification within three (3) business days of the date notification was sent/attempted/posted by Sponsor, with the required information or prize will be forfeited. The elected potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements.
Sponsor may require the selected potential winner to sign and return to Sponsor, within three (3) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability & Publicity Release (“Affidavit”) and other documents in order to claim his/her prize. These documents will be sent out to the potential winner by email (or other means) with instructions as to how to return them to Sponsor. The potential selected winner may be required to provide his/her U. S. Social Security Number for tax purposes. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification and Affidavit procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate winner(s).
In Sponsor’s sole discretion, the selected potential winner may be disqualified (and may forfeit his/her prize), and an alternate winner may be randomly selected in accordance with these Official Rules from among the remaining eligible entries if such selected potential winner (i) is unreachable or does not timely respond to any communication from Sponsor (or its designee) (or if a winner notification is returned as undeliverable), (ii) declines or cannot accept, receive or use a prize for any reason, (iii) fails to sign and return the Affidavit within the required time period, and/or (iv) does not comply with these Official Rules. Forfeited prizes may not be awarded. In the event that a selected potential winner is disqualified and/or is unable to satisfy the requirements herein, Sponsor will use reasonable efforts to award the prize to an alternate winner (if necessary and time permitting) who successfully meets the requirements to receive a prize, but reserves the right to not award the prize after multiple efforts to identify an alternate winner (if any) who accepts the prize.
Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners, are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. The selected potential winner may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be required to show a valid state issued driver’s license, government-issued identification or other identification (subject to Sponsor’s approval) as evidence of identity.
