How to Play – Instant Win Game:  After completing the online registration page (first time visitors) or logging in with your registered email address (for return visitors), entrants may participate in the instant win game for the random chance to win an available prize award (see below).  The instant win game play page will display an image of a Jameson Cornhole game.  To determine if you are an instant prize winner, up to one time each day during the Sweepstakes period, visit the game play page and attempt the cornhole game by clicking the bean bag image.  After clicking the bean bag to make your cornhole toss attempt, entrants will immediately be notified if they are an instant prize winner for that game play attempt.

 

After clicking the image of the bean bag to attempt the cornhole toss on the game play screen, the website will determine if the participant is a potential instant prize winner for that game play attempt, and the participant shall receive an online message verifying if they are a potential winner.  If they are NOT determined as an instant win prize winner, they will receive a non-winning message.  If the participant is determined as a potential instant win prize winner, the participant will receive an instant winner confirmation message, associated instant win prize description AND an associated unique prize claim code on their results page.  If the participant does not receive the winner confirmation message and a valid unique prize claim code for any reason, or receives the non-winning results message, then that participant will not be a prize winner for that game play attempt. 

 

Eligible participants may return to the Sweepstakes website to play the online instant win game up to one time per day, each day during the Sweepstakes period.  Each ‘day’ shall be defined as occurring between 12:00:00am ET to 11:59:59pm ET, and the Sweepstakes Administrator’s time clock shall be the sole determinant of the eligible time period.

 

Instant win prize winners will be randomly determined throughout the Sweepstakes Period.  A maximum total of sixty-five (65) instant prize winners will be randomly determined during the entire Sweepstakes period, based upon randomly selected and predetermined winning dates and times.  The first eligible participant who participates at or following a scheduled winning date and time, shall receive an instant win prize message and unique prize claim code, and shall be eligible to claim the instant win prize award (see below).

 

NOTE:  Maximum of one instant win prize award per person, email address or household during the entire Sweepstakes period, and a maximum of ten (10) instant win prize winners determined from any individual state.  After receiving a winning prize message or being determined as an eligible instant win prize winner, contestants may not be re-awarded another instant win prize during the entire Sweepstakes period to the same individual, email or any member of the same household. 

 

Claiming a prize award:  Eligible contestants receiving an online winner confirmation message, must print or record their unique prize claim code, and must follow the online instructions provided.  Eligible prize winners will receive a prize claim form via email within 1 – 2 weeks from their online notification of a winning attempt or determination of being a potential prize winner.
