Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.

Entries received from any person, e-mail address, or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.

All entries must be received by the end time/date of the Contest Period.

Blizz Enterprises, LLC is not responsible for and will not consider incomplete or incorrect entries, or emails sent or entries mailed but not received by Blizz Enterprises, LLC for any reason what so ever, as potential contest winners.

6.)  Prizes

All the prize details for a particular contest/giveaway are stated on the contest announcement page.  All details and other restrictions of prizes that are not specified in these Official Rules or on the contest announcement page will be determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.

7.)  Prize Drawing

About 24-48 hours after the end time/date of the specific contest/giveaway stated on the contest announcement page, the Sponsor will select potential winners in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received.

8.)  Winner Notification

The Sponsor will attempt to notify the winners of all contests by e-mail using the email address provided at the time of entry, and the person receiving and replying to the winner announcement email will be considered the winner unless they specify another person within the reply email as the winner. The winner will also be announced on the contest/giveaway announcement page.

Each potential Grand and First Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) may be required, depending on the contest, to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. The Sponsor is not responsible if any potential winner notifications are not received for any reason.  If a potential winner cannot be contacted within 48 hours after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to sign the Declaration of Compliance on the potential winners behalf and fulfill any other requirements imposed on winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. 

In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  The Sponsor will consecutively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of each prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of the prize in question after such attempts have been made, the applicable prize may go unawarded.

All taxes (and the reporting consequences thereof) and any other fees or costs associated with the prizes described above are the sole responsibility of the winners.
