Randomly selected dates and times during the Contest Period will be chosen by the Administrator, and the first participant who completes an entry in accordance with these Rules (whose entry is properly received and recorded by the Administrator’s computer on or immediately after a randomly selected time during the Contest Period) will potentially win an Instant Win prize (subject to verification).
If your device displays a prize-winning message, you are a potential winner of the indicated Instant Win prize (subject to verification). If your device does not display a prize-winning message, you are not a winner of an Instant Win prize. Potential Instant Win prize winners will also receive an email at the email address provided with your entry. All entries must be properly received and recorded within the Contest Period in order to be eligible to win a prize. Odds of winning an Instant Win prize depend on the order in which entries are received.
If you are notified on-screen that you are eligible to win an Instant Win Prize based on your entry you will be sent an email to the email address associated with your account that contains a link (the “Notification”). Upon clicking the link, you must enter the email address associated with your account. You will then be prompted to correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question to be provided on-screen without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise. If the potential winner correctly answers the mathematical skill-testing question, they will be asked to complete a prize claim form which includes confirming / providing their name, province and email, and to agree to a declaration of compliance and release. Once these steps have been completed, the Sponsor’s designated agent will confirm the potential winner as a winner, and their Instant-Win Prize will be delivered by mail. Please allow up to two (2) weeks for verification and delivery of prize. Prizes will only be delivered to winners who have been verified and have complied with these Rules.
If the potential Prize winner does not respond to the Notification within three (3) business days, is found to be ineligible for any reason, declines to accept the prize, or incorrectly answers the required mathematical-skill testing question, the potential winner will be disqualified and will forfeit the prize. The Contest Parties will not be responsible for failed attempts to notify any potential winner.
