2. Winner Selection and Notification.
Between December 19, 2016 and January 18, 2017, two (2) random, computer-generated Instant Win items will be generated (1 for PlayStation®4 and 1 for Xbox One). The player who opens a DORITOS® Super Bowl Legend Pack containing an Instant Win Ticket will be a potential Winner of the prize, and will be contacted by Sponsor via the email address associated with their EA Account to complete and sign a Declaration of Eligibility and Release of Liability and Publicity, and to confirm they are able to travel on the dates specified in Section 4 below.
If no entrant draws the Instant Win Ticket on one or both platforms by the end of the Sweepstakes Period, a potential Winner will be determined by random drawing held on or about January 20, 2017. The drawing(s) will be held from all eligible entries received, and conducted by Sponsor or its designee, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding.
Potential winners will be required to complete and sign the Declaration of Eligibility and, except where prohibited, Liability/Publicity Release, in the form provided by Sponsor, within 48 hours of attempted notification in order to claim prize. If a minor wins a prize, it will be awarded in the name of the minor’s parent or legal guardian, who will also be responsible for signing any necessary releases, consents and affidavits. Guest(s) will also be required to sign a Liability/Publicity Release at least 7 days prior to travel or guest will not be able to travel. If a potential winner does not respond as directed within 48 hours of attempted notification, fails to sign and/or return the Declaration of Eligibility, refuses the prize, is ineligible to accept the prize, or prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. If a winner is 18 or older, as required, but a minor in his or her state, country or providence of residence, winner’s parent or legal guardian will be required to sign all necessary documents. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules; all prizes claimed in accordance with these Official Rules will be awarded. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified or the prize is forfeited for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize, time permitting given the nature of the prize, to an alternate winner by random drawing from all remaining eligible Entries. Up to three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which EA retains the discretion to donate the applicable prize to a charity of Sponsor’s choosing. Potential winners may be required to provide a shipping address to claim prize.
There are two (2) Grand Prizes. Entries may contain an Instant Win ticket for one of two (2) Grand Prizes. Odds of winning a prize via an Instant Win ticket are one in seventy-five thousand (1 in 75,000). If no entrant draws the Instant Win Ticket on one or both platforms by the end of the Sweepstakes Period, odds of winning a prize through a random drawing depend upon the number of eligible Entries in the Sweepstakes. Entries may contain an Instant Win ticket for one of two (2) Grand Prizes.
Two (2) winners: One (1) winner for each of Xbox One and PlayStation®4 will each receive two (2) tickets and a prize trip to the 2017 NFL Super Bowl in Houston, TX. Winner must be able to travel February 3, 2017 through February 6, 2017.
Each prize trip includes roundtrip, economy/coach class airfare for 2 people (Winner and Guest) from the major commercial airport nearest the Winner’s residence (Winner and Guest must travel together on same itinerary); hotel accommodations for 4 days and 3 nights (one (1) double occupancy room) at a hotel chosen at the Sponsor’s discretion. Incidentals, including, without limitation: telephone calls, facsimile charges, Internet charges, Spa/beauty salon services, laundry, tours/excursions, gift shop purchases, hotel processing fees and airline service charges, are the sole responsibility of the Winner and his or her Guest. Hotel and airfare cannot be used separately. All travel must be completed by February 6, 2017 or prize will be forfeited in its entirety. Travel and accommodations are subject to availability and certain restrictions, so Sponsor cannot guarantee prize trip will be available on the exact dates specified by Winner. Any extra nights’ stay and any additional costs associated with an extended stay are the sole responsibility of the Winner and his or her Guest. Any Winner who is a minor must be accompanied during travel by at least one adult (parent or guardian) 18 years of age or older. Additional restrictions may apply.
The approximate retail value (ARV) of each prize is $15,000. Actual value of prize trip may vary depending on Winner’s residence and seasonal rates.
