If successfully verified as the Prizewinner, the Entrant will be deemed the “Prizewinner.” If the potential Prizewinner is found ineligible or fails to comply with these Official Rules, that individual’s claim to the Prize is forfeited and an alternate randomly drawn eligible Entrant may be selected and contacted at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
