The Sweepstakes begins on March 15, 2014 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on March 15, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Sweepstakes.
To enter go to www.megajackpot4life.com or one of the Sponsor’s other designated websites and provide the requisite information to register. Registration is free. Once you complete the online registration form you will be automatically given an entry code and be automatically entered in the Sweepstakes and automatically be given an entry code (as described below in Section 5). Limit one entry per person, per email address, during the Sweepstakes Period regardless of method of entry. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s plays and that participant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the registrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor reserves the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email address is submitted as part of this Sweepstakes. Sweepstakes may have many different creative presentations.
On or about March 17, 2015, Sponsor or an independent judging agency will randomly assign each entrant an entry code between 1 and 150,000,000, if they have not already been assigned one (each an “Entrant Code”). Then the Sponsor or its agent will randomly select one number between 1 and 150,000,000 (the “Winning Entry Code”). If the Winning Entry Code matches an assigned Entrant Code then the entrant that was assigned that Entrant Code will win the grand prize described below in Section 8. If there are multiple winners the prize will be split equally amongst all such individuals who had the matched Entrant Code. The winning entrant (if applicable) will be contacted using the email address or phone number provided with the entry and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules.) Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winner will be notified or about or about the selection date. Failure to respond to the initial contact within five (5) business days of date of notification will result in disqualification. Odds of winning the Grand Prize are 1:150,000,000. If the Winning Entry Code does not match an assigned Entrant Code then no prize will be awarded.
Potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner may be required to provide the Sponsor with documentation that shows he or she was an eligible participant. The potential winner will be notified by email, telephone, or mail after the date of random drawing. The potential winner will be required to sign and return to Sponsor, within five (5) business days of the date notice is sent, an affidavit of eligibility, and liability/publicity release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize if applicable. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize.
One grand prize winner will receive Five Hundred Dollars ($500) per week for the rest of their life (up to the age of 75) or have the option for a lump sum payment of Five Hundred and Five Thousand Dollars ($505,000). Once the grand prize winner dies the payments will immediately end. Grand prize is non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any listed prize for one of equal or greater value for any reason. All federal, state and local taxes and fees are the sole responsibility of the winner, who may be required to complete an IRS Form W-9 (requesting social security number or other taxpayer i.d.) and be issued an IRS Form 1099, as necessary. Winner is advised to seek independent counsel regarding prize winning.

Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.

No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
