Limit: One (1) Sweepstakes entry per person per day regardless of whether entrant has more than one Facebook account. Participants may complete more than one (1) Game Play per day to attempt to complete any Game with a shorter Game Time. All entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.

The ARV of all prizes available to be won: $630.

WINNER DETERMINATION: Potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing on or about Thursday, December 14, 2016, from among all eligible Sweepstakes entries received during the Sweepstakes Period by the Sweepstakes Administrator, an independent agent of the Sponsor whose decisions are final.

One (1) Potential Game First Prize will be awarded for each Game. The participant with the shortest Game Time for each Game at the end of the Sweepstakes Period will be deemed the potential Game First Prize winner for that Game. In the event of a tie in determining any Game First Prize winner, the Sweepstakes Administrator will conduct a random drawing from among all tied entries to determine the potential Game First Prize winner.

Potential winners will be notified by email and required to confirm their mailing address within 48 hours via return email. Noncompliance will result in disqualification and an alternate winner may be determined. Prizes will be awarded within approximately 4-6 weeks after the winner is verified.

If a winner is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, the prize will be awarded in the name of winner’s parent or legal guardian.

PRIZE CONDITIONS: If a prize notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or if winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these rules, that winner will be disqualified and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner. Only two (2) alternate winners may be determined through this process as outlined above, after which the prize may remain un-awarded.

Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Prizes are not assignable nor transferable. No substitution is permitted except if prize is unavailable, in which case a prize of equal or greater value will be awarded. No cash in lieu of prizes and no exchange or substitution of prizes, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. Any other incidental expenses on prize not specified herein are the winner’s sole responsibility.

Gift cards are not redeemable for cash and will not be replaced if lost or stolen. Gift card usage is subject to the issuing company’s complete terms and conditions, including expiration dates.

Winner is responsible for all federal, state, local and income taxes associated with winning prize. Except where prohibited by law, entry and acceptance of prize constitute permission to use winner’s name, prize won, hometown, likeness, video tape, photographs, and statements for purposes of advertising, promotion and publicity (including online posting) in any and all media now or hereafter known throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification or permission.

GENERAL: Although subsequent attempts to enter may be received, only the first complete Sweepstakes entry received per day from a particular entrant will be eligible; subsequent attempts by the same person to enter, including entries submitted with an alternate account, will be disqualified.

Participating entrants agree to these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and the Sweepstakes Administrator, and release the Sponsor, the Sweepstakes Administrator, Facebook, Inc., and their affiliated companies, and all other businesses involved in this Sweepstakes, as well as the employees, officers, directors and agents of each (the “Released Parties”), from all claims and liability relating to their participation in the promotion, and the acceptance and use/misuse of the prize offered.
