5.1 Entry and Instant Notification.  To enter the Sweepstakes (each an 'Entry'), during the Promotion Period, eligible entrants will be invited to participate in the Sweepstakes via banner ads, emails, text messages and other advertisements that the Sponsor has placed or otherwise purchased ("Invitations"). To enter, the entrant must click on the Invitation which will ultimately bring entrant to the REGISTRATION PAGE (the "Website"), and complete the registration form with accurate information.   Once the survey is completed and submitted, the entrant will be entered and will immediately be informed whether he/she has won a prize as described in Rule 5.2 below, subject to verification of eligibility.  If an entrant receives a message that contains any message other than a winning prize message, the entrant is not a winner.


NO MAIL-IN ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.


ALL POTENTIAL WINNING PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY ADMINISTRATOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A "SCREEN SHOT" IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF WINNING A PRIZE. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE WEBSITE AND/OR FACEBOOK APPLICATION SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID ENTRANT'S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND SAID ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. ADMINISTRATOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.


5.2 Winner Selection.  Prior to the start of the Promotion Period, the Administrator will randomly determine one (1) prize determination number (the "Prize Determination Number") for the Sweepstakes. When an entrant enters the Sweepstakes following the steps described in Rule 5.1 above, the Administrator's computer will randomly generate one number associated with the entrant's game play (the "Participant Number").  If the Prize Determination Number and the entrant's Participant Number match identically, the entrant will be a potential winner of the Prize, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.


5.3 Prize/Odds.  The Prize is a $50,000 cash prize or the item(s) displayed in the advertisement, which may include a cash component.  The odds of winning the Prize are 100,000,000 to one.

Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, or any other methods will void that participant's entries and that participant may be disqualified.  An entrant may participate only using the methods provided for in these Official Rules. Participation by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other website or e-mail address, including commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this promotion. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited and will lead to disqualification.  The Promotion Entities are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. 


5.5 Authorized Account Holder.  If there's a dispute over the identity of an entrant, participation will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address provided at time of registration. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win.
