Winner Selection Drawing. On or about May 15, 2020 (the "Drawing Date"), an independent firm selected by Sponsor will randomly and electronically first select one (1) Conditional Prize Winner for each of the 36 Prizes and then three (3) Alternate Conditional Prize Winners for each of the 36 Prizes from among all valid Sweepstakes tickets, for each one of the listed Prizes. You do not need to be present at the Drawing Date to win. Odds of winning a Prize depends on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.
Winner Notification. Within three (3) business days of the Drawing Date, Sponsor will contact each Conditional Prize Winner using the contact information provided on the entry form. If Sponsor is unable to contact the Conditional Prize Winner(s), the Conditional Prize Winner(s) fails to respond to the Sponsor's initial contact within three (3) business days of notification, or Sponsor's email to the Conditional Prize Winner(s) is returned as undeliverable, such Conditional Prize Winner(s) will be disqualified, and Sponsor shall contact an alternative Conditional Prize Winner.
Verification of Conditional Prize Winners. CONDITIONAL PRIZE WINNER(S) ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. Entrant(s) selected as Conditional Prize Winner(s) will be contacted within three (3) business days following notification and will be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor, within seven (7) days of the date notice is sent, a notarized affidavit of eligibility, a notarized prize selection affidavit, IRS W-9 form, liability/publicity release (except where prohibited). Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, exercise its rights under such affidavit. 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 Prize winner shall be disqualified from the Sweepstakes and an alternate potential Prize winner may be selected, at Sponsor's sole discretion, first from the alternate Conditional Prize Winner(s) by random drawing, and if no alternatives satisfy these requirements, then at random from among the other eligible entries received. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification and Affidavit procedures in connection with the selection of alternate potential Prize winner, if any.
Odds of Winning. Odds of winning = One (1) divided by total number of valid tickets timely entered for a particular LC drawing.
Prizes. There are thirty six (36) Prizes:
Total Approximate Retail Value of all Prizes: $2,095,000.
The alternative cash prizes are available to Verified Winner(s), subject to IRS withholding requirements. If the Verified Winner(s) selects the alternative cash prize, he or she will receive a check for 75% of the alternate cash prize. Additionally a withholding payment in the amount of 25% will be applied to the winner's IRS withholding. All non-stated options and features are in Sponsor's discretion and subject to availability. Sponsor shall make arrangements with the Verified Prize Winner(s) to award the Prize(s) at a prize award ceremony. When applicable, the Prize Winner(s) must provide proof of insurance and a valid driver's license in order to receive any vehicle included in a Prize. The Prize award ceremonies will take place at a location and date determined solely by the Sponsor. If the Verified Prize Winner(s) is not able to travel on the date required by the Sponsor, the Prize may be forfeited. Sponsor shall make reasonable efforts to accommodate the Verified Prize Winner(s) with an alternate travel data within a two (2) week period, or in its sole discretion may allow the Verified Prize Winner(s) to send a representative to accept the Prize on the ceremony date. Verified Prize Winners agree to participate in the award ceremony as a condition to receive a Prize. Should a Verified Prize Winner(s) choose to receive a non-cash Prize, which includes cash for taxes, the Sponsor or Sponsor's agent acting on behalf of Sponsor agrees to pay the specified cash amount toward the IRS withholding requirement on behalf of the Verified Prize Winner(s). For purposes of federal taxes, the net fair market value of the Prize, plus any published cash award applied toward the IRS withholding requirement, as of the date the Verified Prize Winner receives the Prize, will determine the net fair market value of the Prize, not the approximate current retail value of the Prize. If the cash portion of a Prize, should any exist, does not fulfill the withholding requirement calculated by applying the IRS gross-up formula to the net fair market value of the grand-prize at the time of the award, the Verified Prize Winner will be required to fund the difference at the time of (or prior to) receiving the Prize. Verified Prize Winner(s) is solely responsible for all taxes resulting from winning the Prize, including all federal, state and local, taxes, fees, assessments, and other similar charges. All Prizes are non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor's sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any listed prize for one of equal or greater value for any reason.
