WINNER DETERMINATION: One (1) potential winner will be selected in a random drawing held 1 business day following the end of the applicable Daily Entry Period from among all eligible Entries received for that drawing by an independent judging agency. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received for the applicable drawing. Non-winning Entries from one drawing will not carry over into subsequent drawings.
