Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Potential winners will be notified by direct message via Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter account used to enter and will be asked to respond within the time specified by Sponsor with their contact information and/or given instructions to claim their prize within 24 hours.

Once notified, potential winner will not be notified again. Promotion Entities shall have no liability for any winner notification that is intercepted, not received, not delivered, misdirected as spam/junk, not timely acted upon, or otherwise not responded to by a potential winner for any reason whatsoever, and the prize will be forfeited. After one additional unsuccessful attempt to award a prize (if deemed necessary by Sponsor), that prize will remain unawarded; there will not be a second-chance drawing.
It is anticipated that prize(s) will be sent by direct message via the social media account used to enter on or within thirty (30) days following winner verification. Prize or prize notifications that are unawarded, unclaimed, undelivered, misdelivered (including into spam or junk folders), refused or returned will not be re-awarded.
