Non-winning entrants will also be notified on screen. Potential Instant Win Prize winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements in these Official Rules. All winning claims are subject to verification by the Administrator and/or Sponsor, whose decisions are binding. Even if the Instant Win Game shows that you are a winner, you are not a winner until your eligibility and the potential winning Instant Win Game play have been verified.
To claim your Instant Win Prize: If your business of employment is verified as an Eligible Business, you will receive an email to the email address submitted at the time of Entry within five (5) days of your potential win with instructions on how to claim your Instant Win Prize (the “Prize Claim Email”). Follow the instructions within the Prize Claim Email to download the Prize Claim Forms, including an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Waiver, a Publicity Release and an IRS W-9 Form (collectively, the “Prize Claim Forms”). The owner or an employee of the Eligible Business with the authority to accept the Instant Win Prize on behalf of the Eligible Business must follow the instructions to send the completed Prize Claim Forms to the Administrator within seven (7) days of when the Prize Claim Email is sent.

Failure to comply with the prize claim instructions will result in disqualification and the prize will be void. Once eligibility and Prize Claim Forms are verified, the prize will be awarded within 60 days. In the event that a prize notification or a prize is returned as undeliverable, or if a potential Instant Win Prize winner is found to be ineligible or is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate Instant Win Prize winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only one (1) alternate drawing will be held, after which any remaining Instant Win Prizes will remain un-awarded.
ALL POTENTIAL INSTANT WIN PRIZE WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR AND/OR ADMINISTRATOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY INSTANT WIN PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED.
PRIZE CONDITIONS: Limit one (1) Instant Win Prize per Eligible Business location. Prizes are not redeemable for cash, assignable, transferable and may not be substituted except at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

DISPUTES: The parties hereto each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Released Parties shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in St. Louis County, Missouri and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties.

The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc.

If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in St. Louis County, Missouri. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in St. Louis County, Missouri. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
