(The Promotion Administrator will implement the random time-seeding prior to the commencement of the Promotion Period.) The first person who completes a Chance to win on or after the Winning Time associated with each Prize (as recorded by the Web Site software) will be deemed the winner of the Prize shown on-screen, subject to verification of Chance to win, as well as verification of the eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules of the participant associated with such Chance to win. The Promotion Administrator will determine, at random, the Winning Times in which Prizes will be awarded during each day of the Promotion Period. The odds of winning a Prize on a given day of the Promotion Period are based upon the time on that day when you play (as recorded by the Web Site software), the number of Chances to win received on that day, and the order in which Chances to win are received on that day. If no Chance to win is completed on or after the Winning Time for a specific prize as outlined below and before the next Winning Time for the same prize level as such specific prize, the specific prize associated with the first Winning Time will go unclaimed and therefore unawarded at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. (By way of example, if no Chance to win is completed for the Silver Prize associated with a Winning Time on August 1, 2016 before the next Winning Time for a Silver Prize [on August 2, 2016], the Silver Prize for August 1, 2016 may go unclaimed and unawarded at Sponsor’s sole discretion.) UNCLAIMED OR FORFEITED PRIZES MAY NOT BE AWARDED, except that the Sponsor may choose at its sole discretion to reallocate unawarded prizes to a later day of the Promotion Period. The number of Prizes available to be won will decrease throughout the Promotion Period as Prizes are awarded. Potential Prize winners will be instantly notified upon submitting an eligible Chance to win, but such notification is unofficial and subject to verification of, eligibility, and compliance with these Official Rules. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, SCREEN SHOTS WILL NOT CONSTITUTE PROOF OF WINNING; YOU ARE NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL YOUR CHANCE TO WIN HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY THE PROMOTION ADMINISTRATOR AND YOU HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY NOTIFIED TO SUCH EFFECT BY THE PROMOTION ADMINISTRATOR. If you receive a message other than an official winning prize message, you are not a prize winner. Limit one (1) Prize per person/household/email address throughout the Promotion Period.
