The “primary account holder” is the natural person listed as the natural person assigned a mobile phone number by a wireless provider or other organization responsible for assigning wireless numbers.

 

5. Winner Determination

 

Instant Win Prizes

The odds of winning an instant win prize will be 1 in 20 or better. Each entrant who receives a “win” message will be deemed a potential instant win prize winner pending confirmation and verification of the entrant’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor and Administrator in their sole and absolute discretion. Each entrant who receives a “win” message will be texted a link to redeem their instant win prize at a participating Circle K. The instant win prize must be redeemed within 3 days. Instant win prizes may be transferred to another individual.

 

Instant Win Grand Prizes

Twenty (20) instant win grand prizes are available to be won. The odds of winning an instant win grand prize depend on the number of eligible entrants. Each entrant who receives a “win” instant win grand prize message will be deemed a potential instant win grand prize winner pending confirmation and verification of the entrant’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor and Administrator in their sole and absolute discretion. Each entrant who receives a “win” instant win grand prize message will be required to fill out an online form and provide their name, address, phone number and email address. The Sponsor and Administrator will then ship the prize to the provided address with 4 – 6 weeks of the instant win grand prize winner being verified.

 

Random Drawing for Grand Prize

On or about September 5, 2020 Administrator will randomly select one (1) entry for the grand prize described below in a random drawing of all valid entries received. The potential winner will be contacted using the contact details provided with the entry and may be awarded the prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. The potential winner will be notified on or about September 5, 2020. Failure by potential winner to respond to the initial verification within 72 hours of notification will result in disqualification and Administrator will select an alternate potential winner in the same manner. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Entry Period.

 

All potential winning game plays are subject to verification by Sponsor or Administrator, whose decisions are final and binding. An entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if the game play should so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibility and the potential winning game play have been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots, text message or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Any game play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective play, is void, and will not be honored. The number of instant win prizes available to be won will decrease during the Game Period as prizes are awarded and claimed.

 

Sponsor and Administrator’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the determination of potential winners (drawing prizes and instant win prizes) is final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. If in the event of a printing, production, seeding, technical, human or other error of any kind, or for any other reason, the number of winning messages distributed or received exceeds the number of prizes listed in these Official Rules for that level, Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a random drawing from among all non-suspect, eligible prize claims received to award the listed prizes.

 

6. POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR AND/OR ADMINISTRATOR. SPONSOR AND ADMINISTRATOR’S DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE ADMINISTRATION, OPERATION, SELECTION OF THE WINNERS AND OTHER MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES.

 

7. Verification of Potential Winners

Potential winners may be required to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release of Liability and Publicity Release (where permitted by law) (collectively, the “Affidavit”) by the date specified by Sponsor or potential winner will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. In the event: (a) potential winner cannot be reached for whatever reason after a reasonable effort has been exerted or the potential winner notification or Affidavit is returned as undeliverable; (b) potential winner declines or cannot accept, receive or use the prize for any reason; (c) of noncompliance with the above or within any of the aforesaid time periods, (d) potential winner is found to be ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or receive the prize, (e) potential winner cannot or does not comply with the Official Rules, or (f) potential winner fails to fulfill the Affidavit-related obligations, the potential winner shall be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification and Affidavit procedures.
