None of the Contest Parties makes any representation or offers any warranty, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of a Prize awarded in connection with the Contest. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each confirmed winner understands and acknowledges that he or she may not seek reimbursement or pursue any legal or equitable remedy from any of the Contest Parties should his/her Prize fail to be fit for its purpose or is in any way unsatisfactory. For greater certainty and the avoidance of any doubt, by accepting a Prize, each confirmed winner agrees to waive all recourse against the Contest Parties if the Prize or a component thereof does not prove satisfactory, either in whole or in part.

 

5. OPPORTUNITY FOR GRAND PRIZE:  On or shortly after September 18 2021 in Toronto, Ontario, the Administrator will randomly select three (3) Finalists (each a “Finalist”) from all eligible entries received, each of whom will have an opportunity to play to win one of the three Grand Prizes, subject to the requirements described below.

The Administrator will verify that each Finalist meets the criteria of the Official Rules before the Finalist shall be contacted to participate in the play for a Grand Prize.   

The Administrator will contact the selected Finalists by email and/or  telephone at the email address and/or telephone number in the Request.  The Selected Finalist must reply to the Administrator by the date and time AND to the email address and/or telephone number specified in the email and/or telephone message.  Failure to do so will result in the disqualification of the Selected Finalist and the Administrator will randomly select another eligible finalist from the remaining eligible entries in accordance with the “Official Rules” until such time as there are three (3) Selected Finalists who have met the requirements to play for a Grand Prize.

The plays for a Grand Prize will take place on or about October 1, 2021 via videoconference call.

Each verified Finalist will pick one envelope from a field of 100 envelopes.  One $500,000 prize is randomly seeded in one envelope among the 100 envelopes (for each Finalist).  If a Finalist picks the envelope containing the Grand Prize, then subject to completing the requirements in Section 6 below, such Finalist will win one of the Grand Prizes. If a Finalist does not pick the envelope containing the $500,000 prize, then subject to completing the requirements in Section 6 below, such Finalist will receive a consolation prize of $1,000.  

 

Odds of being selected as a Finalist depend on number of eligible Requests received. After being selected a Finalist, the odds of winning a Grand Prize are 1 in 100.  It is possible no Grand Prize and not all Grand Prizes will be awarded.

 

6. GRAND PRIZE CLAIM CONDITIONS:  Where an Entrant has selected the envelope containing a Grand Prize, to be declared a winner of a Grand Prize, the Entrant must answer correctly, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill-testing question. The selected entrant will also be required to sign a Declaration and Release Form (the “Release Form”) confirming compliance with the Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, without substitution, and releasing the Sponsor, its dealers, agents, affiliated and related companies, advertising and promotional agencies, the independent contest organization and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, dealers, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any liability in connection with the Grand Prize or this Contest. The Release Form must be returned within the time period specified on the Release Form or the Grand Prize may be forfeited. Upon receipt of the completed Release Form, and the selected entrant correctly answering the mathematical skill testing question, the Grand Prize will be shipped to the winner by a representative of the Sponsor within four (4) to six (6) weeks.  

 

7. INSTANT WIN PRIZE SEEDING & CLAIM CONDITIONS:  There are 30,000,000 Instant Win Plays available at the start of the Contest.  There are 69,130 Instant Win Prizes available to be won at the start of the Contest. The 69,130 Instant Win Prizes are seeded among the 30,000,000 available Instant Win Plays based on a pre-determined, randomly allocated basis.  Odds of winning an Instant Win Prize is approximately 1 in 434  at the beginning of the Contest, and will change as Instant Win Prizes are claimed and the number of available Instant Win Plays decreases. It is possible not all Instant Win Prizes will be awarded by the end of the Contest Period.  To be declared an Instant Win Prize winner, the potential winner must correctly answered a skill testing question and have submitted a Request that meets the Official Rules.
