Each Instant Win Promotion Period commences at 12:00:00 AM ET and ends at 11:59 PM ET, for a total of forty-five (45) Instant Win Promotion Periods in the Promotional Period.
Administrator will be giving away one (1) randomly seeded instant win prize (each an "Instant Win Prize") per Instant Win Promotion Period (for a total of forty-five (45) Instant Win Prizes). The Instant Win Prize will be awarded to the Entrant who completes an entry form and then presses the "Submit" button on the Instant Win Entry page at the exact time the prize is randomly seeded (the "Winning Time"), or the closest time following the Winning Time if no Entrant pressed the button at the Winning Time.
The first Entrant to fill out the required fields on the entry form and click "Submit" on the Instant Win Entry Page, on or after a random time condition is met, will be the potential prize winner ("Potential Instant Prize Winner") for the applicable Instant Win Promotion Period.

Potential Instant Win Prize Winners will be taken to a verification page, where they will be instructed to verify their contact information, including name, phone number, and email address. If a Potential Instant Win Prize Winner fails to verify his/her contact information, he or she will forfeit the Instant Win Prize. If a Potential Instant Win Prize Winner (1) fails to verify their contact information; (2) is found ineligible in the sole discretion of Administrator; or (3) the Instant Win Prize is forfeited for any reason, the Instant Win Prize will be deemed unclaimed. Limit: one (1) entry per person/email address per Instant Win Promotion Period during the Promotional Period. The time when you press the "Submit" button on the Instant Win Entry page and the number of entries received during the applicable Instant Win Promotion Period will determine the odds of winning for each Instant Win Prize. All Potential Instant Win Prize Winners are subject to verification of eligibility under these Official Rules.
Note: The time when you press the "Submit" button on the Instant Win Entry page during the applicable Instant Win Promotion Period (as received, recorded and timed by the promotion website technology) will solely determine whether or not you are a Potential Instant Win Prize Winner.
Note: Participants who enter the Instant Win Game will automatically be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.
Incomplete, unreadable, garbled, unintelligible or otherwise non-compliant entries will be disqualified. Normal time, toll, connection and usage rates, if any, charged by your internet service provider will apply. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an Entrant, the authorized account holder will be deemed to be the Entrant. Entrant must be the rightful owner of the account and each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that Entrant's entries and that Entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. If a dispute arises relating to an Instant Win Prize won, the Administrator will compare the pre-generated promotion data with the data you are presenting or have generated. Ultimately it will be the results of the analysis which will determine entitlement to any Instant Win Prize. In the event the analysis reveals valid Instant Win Prize claims are greater than the number of prizes available as set forth in these Official Rules, then Sponsor/Administrator reserve the right to conduct a random drawing amongst all eligible prize claimants whose claims have not yet been redeemed, to award the remaining number of advertised Instant Win Prizes or, if there is any question as to the fairness of the eligible Entrants to award any applicable Instant Win Prizes in the Grand Prize Drawing. Prizes will stop being awarded in the event Administrator becomes aware of an error respecting the number of prizes being awarded. In no event will the Administrator and Sponsor be liable for more than the stated number of Instant Win Prizes available in these Official Rules.
