For All Entries: Limit one (1) Entry per person per Drawing Period.

Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, illegible or misdirected Entries, which may be disqualified, or for any error, human, technical or otherwise.  Sponsor is not responsible for any loss of internet connection or for any server issues or other electronic connection issues which may cause Participant to be unable to connect to the internet in order to enter the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules.


  1. 5. Winner Selection: During each Prize Drawing Time of a Drawing Period, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) potential winner from all eligible Entries received during the applicable Drawing Period.

Prize Notification and Delivery: Sponsor will notify each potential winner by direct message on the live stream.  Within twenty-four (24) hours of Sponsor’s notification, winner must supply his/her mailing address and any requested information for the administration of the Sweepstakes.

Potential winners may be required to sign and return to Sponsor, a fully completed and legible Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release ("Affidavit"), except where prohibited by applicable law.  If a potential winner of the prize cannot be contacted, fails to respond to the notification within twenty-four (24) hours, or fails or refuses to fully complete, sign and return the Affidavit, fails to provide any requested information within the required time period, fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question, or the prize or notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the applicable prize.  If for any reason a potential winner is disqualified, the prize may be awarded to a potential alternate winner, selected by random drawing from among the remaining eligible Entries, even if the disqualified potential winner may have been publicly announced. Only two (2) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.  Prizes will be distributed to the winner within thirty (30) days of winner announcement upon completion of the Sweepstakes.
