  6. Odds of winning depend on the number of prizes and the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period at the time of the drawing.
  7. All persons selected as winners must be confirmed as satisfying these Rules before they are declared a winner. Potential winners will be notified by email at the address provided with their entry.
