Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any participant’s participation in the Promotion (and void all associated Game Plays) or entitlement to a prize if, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, it determines or suspects that the participant has attempted to undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion by tampering, cheating, hacking, deception, or other fraudulent, deceptive or unfair playing practices (including any Game Plays or Tokens generated by script, macro, robotic, programmed, or any other automated means or any other means which subvert the Game Play process).

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Promotion shall be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply New Jersey law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties.

Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to cancel, terminate, modify and/or suspend this Promotion at any time if the Promotion is not capable of being completed as planned, including, but not limited to, if fraud, technical failures, including any network server or hardware failure, viruses, bugs, errors in programming, or any other errors or other causes (such as force majeure events) impairs the administration, security, integrity or proper play of the Promotion.

Participants engaging in any of the foregoing activities may be disqualified (and all associated Game Plays will be void) and will forfeit any prize won. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
If a dispute arises relating to any prize won, a combination of factors will be assessed in determining if you are in fact eligible to win a prize: (a) the Play Receipt including the unique SIC, and its corresponding play data in the Promotion database will be reviewed to determine the legitimacy of the claim; and (b) the Sponsor will compare the pre-generated game data with the Game Play data you are presenting or have generated. Ultimately it will be the results of the Sponsor’s analysis, which will determine your entitlement to any prize. The review of any such dispute will not commence prior to two weeks following the Promotion end date noted herein. In the event the Sponsor’s analysis reveals valid claims are greater than the number of prizes available as set forth in these Official Rules, then Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a random drawing amongst all eligible claimants whose claims have not yet been redeemed, to award the remaining number of advertised prize in the category in question. Prizes will stop being awarded in the event Sponsor becomes aware of an error respecting the number of prizes. In no event will the Sponsor be liable for more than the stated number of prizes available in the category in question.
In the event of any conflict with any Promotion details contained in these Official Rules and Promotion details contained in Promotion Materials (including but not limited to point of sale, television, and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other promotion media), the details of the Promotion as set forth in these Official Rules shall prevail.
No correspondence will be entered into except with Potential Winners.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. In particular, Sponsor's employees are not authorized to waive, modify or amend any provision or provisions of these Official Rules in any manner whatsoever.
