The Sweepstakes begins on December 12, 2023, 9AM Pacific and runs through December 23, 2023 23:59AM Pacific (the “Promotion Period”). Sponsor’s clock will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes. Any entry received before or after the applicable Promotion Period is void and will not be eligible for a prize.
Participants can enter on both social media channels each day of the Promotion Period, but each participant is eligible for one prize. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email or other account needed for participation. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email or addresses, accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that participant may be disqualified. Use of any automated, programmed, or robotic system or the like entry methods to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. All entries become property of Sponsor, and none will be acknowledged or returned.
Participants, as of the date of entry, must: (a) be at least 18 years old or the age of majority in their place of residence (whichever is higher), and (b) where applicable to the Sweepstakes entry method(s), be a registered member with his, her, or their own account with the Game, applicable social media channels, or other means consistent with the Additional Terms of the particular Sweepstakes.

Participants must follow the relevant social media channel, comment, and retweet/share the post to be eligible for that day’s draw. There will be a daily social media post that constitutes individual draws.

In the unlikely event that the same name is drawn on both social media channels on the same day, a new winner will be drawn for the second prize.
Drawing; Notification of Winners
All Sweepstakes entries meeting the requirements of these Official Rules will be entered into the applicable event’s prize drawing. The winner will be selected by a random-chance drawing by independent persons or a computer program that randomly chooses the winner from all eligible entries received and the random selection is final and binding. The number of winners is as follows:
Social Sweepstakes: 1 winner on X (formerly Twitter) and 1 winner on Facebook, per day from Dec 11 to Dec 22. 24 individual winners in total.
Sponsor will notify the winner via Direct Message on the relevant social media platform and/or by other means consistent with the Sweepstakes as soon as reasonably practicable following the applicable drawing, but at least within fourteen (14) days of the final drawing. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or failure to receive notification, including inactive account(s), technical difficulties associated therewith, or winner’s failure to adequately monitor any account. Participants are solely responsible for monitoring their email account or social media account for potential prizes and must respond to Sponsor within twenty-four (24) hours or such other time frame as may be specified on the Additional Terms of the particular Sweepstakes webpage. In order to verify winners, Sponsor may require each winner to provide a valid photo ID. Sponsor may contact winners in a language prominent in the country of entry of each such winner, or English. The winner may be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility and liability and publicity release. Should a winner fail to respond to Sponsor or cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim a prize and/or where applicable an affidavit of eligibility and liability and publicity release is not timely received, is incomplete or modified, the prize may be forfeited, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify that winner and select a new winner in a second-chance random drawing from remaining valid, eligible entries timely submitted.

No cash or other substitution, assignment or transfer of the prize is permitted, except at the sole option of Sponsor, who has the right to substitute a prize with another of comparable value. The winner is responsible for all income or other taxes and fees associated with the receipt and/or use of the prize.

If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, programming or any other reasons cause more than stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a choosing from all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims. In the event Sponsor is prevented from continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, or any federal, state or local government law, order, or regulation, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.
You agree to release, indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor and its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees, sponsors and agents, including advertising and promotion agencies, and assigns, and any other organizations related to the Sweepstakes, harmless, from any and all claims, injuries, damages, expenses or losses to person or property and/or liabilities of any nature that in any way arise from participation in the Sweepstakes or acceptance or use of a prize or parts thereof, including, without limitation, (a) any condition caused by events beyond Sponsor’s control that may cause the Sweepstakes to be disrupted or corrupted; (b) the prize, or acceptance, possession, or use of the prize, or from participation in the Sweepstakes; and (c) any printing or typographical errors in any materials associated with the Sweepstakes.

These Official Rules, and any action related thereto, will be governed by the laws of Ireland , however this does not affect your statutory rights. The Sponsor and you irrevocably agrees that the courts of Ireland shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim or matter arising under or in connection with this Sweepstakes. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the “Dispute Resolution and Arbitration” section below, the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Sponsor are not required to arbitrate will be the courts of competent jurisdiction located in Ireland, and you and Sponsor each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. To the extent enforceable in the relevant jurisdiction, we each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Official Rules or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or participation in the Sweepstakes (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Sponsor agree that you and Sponsor are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision (if enforceable in the relevant jurisdiction) shall survive termination of these Official Rules.
Exceptions. As limited exceptions to the Section above: (i) we both may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights.
Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. An arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or the Sponsor prevails on a claim and seeks public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.
Class Action Waiver. TO THE EXTENT ENFORCEABLE IN THE RELEVANT JURISDICTION, YOU AND SPONSOR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section shall be null and void.
Severability. If an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Official Rules is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Official Rules will still apply.
Languages. These Official Rules may be made in multiple language versions. In the event of a dispute as to the terms of different language versions, the English version shall prevail.
Country Specific Notices. If any provision of these Official Rules is invalid under the law, rules, or regulations of a particular country, it will only apply to the extent permitted.
