5. DRAWING/ODDS: One (1) prize winner will be randomly selected in a drawing from among all eligible entries received as of the end of each day of the Sweepstakes Period. Non-winning entries will “roll-over”
to subsequent drawings, if any. The drawings and awarding of the prizes will be conducted by the Administrator, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received by both entry methods combined as of the end of each day of the Sweepstakes Period.

Limit one prize per person.

7. PRIZE WINNER NOTIFICATIONS: Potential winners will be notified by Sponsor or Sponsor’s agent by email, Twitter Direct Message or by replying to the potential winner’s comment on Facebook.
