Each Eligible Entrant who receives a winning Notification will be deemed a potential winner (subject to verification) of the entrant’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. An Eligible Entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if the Notification should so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibility and the potential winning Instant Win Play have been verified and Eligible Entrant has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Any Instant Win Play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective play, is void, and will not be honored.
