Contestants may only complete and submit an entry for the contest on their own behalf.  Any attempt to submit additional entries on their own behalf (by using the same or alternate names or email addresses) or on behalf of another contestant will void all entries submitted by that individual.  Released Parties are not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misdirected, illegible, incomplete, inaccurate, damaged, or for lost or stolen entry boxes or for entries submitted in a manner that is not expressly allowed under these rules.  All such entries will be automatically void. 


In the event of a dispute as to any on-line registration, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to register will be deemed to be the registrant and he/she must be eligible according to these Official Rules.  The “authorized email account holder” is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.  All entries received become the property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.


Finalist Selection:  A random drawing will be held at the conclusion of the Registration Period on or about 2/11/2019 from among all eligible entries received during the Registration Period to select a total of (200) finalists as follows:

·         On-Site Registration – Maximum of (180) finalists: Twenty (20) finalists per store location will be randomly selected from entries received at each of the nine (9) participating store locations; 

·         Online Entry – Maximum of (20) finalists:  Twenty (20) finalists will be randomly selected from among all eligible online entries received.


In the event there are less than (20) eligible finalists for a designated store location or for the online entry, then there will be less than (200) finalists for this contest.  Only the number guesses submitted by these (200) eligible finalists will be valid for the grand prize contest (see below).  All other entries submitted are disqualified and not eligible to claim any prize, regardless of the accuracy of their number guess.


Maximum of one (1) Finalist entry per person and per household.  Selected finalists do not need to be present in order to participate in the grand prize contest.  Any selected contestant who does not meet the eligibility requirements or who does not wish to participate in the grand prize contest will be disqualified.  Decisions of Sponsor and Administrator in the selection of finalists, and all matters related to this Contest are final.


Grand Prize Contest:  Prior to the start of the Contest, a predetermined winning 5-digit number will be randomly selected by an independent promotions company, and placed in a sealed security envelope.  The winning number may be any number within the range 00000 – 99999, inclusive; and digits may repeat within the winning number (i.e. the winning number could be 00000).  Following the random selection of the (200) finalists as outlined above, each finalist’s number guess will be submitted to the promotions company for comparison to the grand prize winning number as contained in the sealed security envelope.  In order for the grand prize to be awarded to an eligible selected finalist, the finalist must have correctly guessed the predetermined grand prize winning number in exact order, which was selected for this contest and is contained in the sealed master envelope.  For example if the predetermined winning number is 1-2-3-4-5, then a submitted number guess of 5-4-3-2-1 will not be considered a winning entry.  Only the 5-digit number guess that is associated with the finalist’s entry that was randomly selected as a finalist for the Contest will be eligible for the grand prize, regardless of the accuracy any other entries a finalist may have submitted during the Registration Period.


In the event a winning number guess has been submitted, the finalist(s) who submitted the winning number guess will be notified.  In the event that no winning number guess is submitted by a selected finalist, then the grand prize will not be awarded and the sealed envelope containing the predetermined winning number will be opened, and the winning number will be revealed.


Prize Awards & Delivery: In the event the eligible finalist successfully completes the grand prize contest requirements, that finalist will be eligible to claim the grand prize, subject to approval and verification of compliance with these official rules.  The grand prize is: $1,000,000 40-year annuity, awarded in the form of $25,000 Cash per year for 40-years without interest.  The initial prize award of $25,000 cash shall be awarded within approximately 30-days of receipt of all required prize acceptance paperwork, and each subsequent payment shall occur on or about the anniversary date of the first payment for 39-years.  No current cash value of the annuity prize award will be available.


A maximum (1) grand prize will be awarded.  In the event that more than (1) eligible selected finalist submits a winning entry during this contest, the grand prize will be divided evenly between those finalists who submitted a winning entry.  In the event there is no grand prize winning attempt, then the grand prize will not be awarded.


Bonus Prize (Maximum of 9):  Each of the (9) participating locations will determine which of their (20) eligible finalists guessed the most digits in exactly the correct order starting with the 1st digit, as compared to the predetermined winning 5-digit number.  The finalist from each location who submitted a guess with the most digits in exactly the correct order starting with the 1st digit will be designated as a bonus prize winner, subject to approval and verification of compliance with these official rules.  The bonus prize is: (1) $500 Value City Furniture gift card. Gift card is subject to the terms and conditions of the Value City Furniture gift card policy. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to award multiple gift cards in varying denominations to satisfy the total amount to be awarded.  In the event of a tie between any eligible finalists, the first tie breaker will be based upon which finalist guessed closest to the next winning digit(s) regardless of whether their guess is higher or lower than the actual winning digit.  In the event there is a remaining tie after all (5) digits have been checked, then a random drawing will be held among tied finalists to determine the bonus prize winner for the corresponding location.  In the event of a grand prize winner, there will be no bonus prize awarded for the participating location that produced the grand prize winner.


Winner(s) must accept delivery of prize from Sponsor, or as otherwise instructed by sponsor.  All other costs related to prize delivery and acceptance are the responsibility of winner including but not limited to federal, state and local taxes. All properly claimed prizes will be awarded.  Prizes are non-transferable and no cash redemption or prize substitution allowed, except at sponsor’s sole discretion or as provided herein.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if an advertised prize becomes unavailable. 


Winner(s) will be required to complete and return a W-9 form (if prize value exceeds $600.00), affidavit of eligibility, and liability/publicity release, and present a valid driver’s license and social security card before prize will be awarded.  Winners of prizes greater than $600.00 will be issued a 1099 form reflecting the value of the prize(s) and are responsible for paying all income taxes on prize(s).  Failure to collect or properly claim any prize in accordance with these rules will result in forfeiture of the prize.  If forfeited for any reason, contestant will not receive any other prize substitution or compensation.  Total ARV of all prizes: $1,000,000 40-year annuity and $4,500. 


Additional Rules & Restrictions:  By participating in this contest, entrants agree to abide by and be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of the Administrator, which shall be final in all matters relating to this contest.  In the event an entrant wins a prize, and is later found to be in violation of these rules he/she will be required to forfeit the prize or to reimburse Sponsor for the stated value of the prize if such violation is discovered after winner has used the prize. Participation in contest constitutes permission for the Sponsor and its agencies to use winners’ names and/or likenesses for purposes of advertising and trade in any media worldwide without limitation or further compensation unless prohibited by law.  False, fraudulent or deceptive entries or acts shall render entrants ineligible for any prize.
