Drawing: At the conclusion of the Giveaway Period, Public Access Gaming will select the name of two (2) Giveaway Winners in a random drawing of all eligible entries received during Entry Period. The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. Potential Winners will be contacted via email and asked to provide their full name, age and mailing address within a specified time period. If a potential winner does not respond within the timeframe stated in the notification email, Public Access Gaming may select an alternate potential winner at random from all entries received during the Entry Period.
Requirements of the Potential Winners: The potential winners will be required to return an email to Public Access Gaming with the winner’s full name and a valid shipping address (if applicable). This email will affirm eligibility and liability/publicity release within seven (7) days of being notified. If a potential winner fails to return the email confirmation within the required time period, an alternate entrant may be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received.

The reporting and payment of any taxes on prizes are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). If required, any applicable forms will be filed with the appropriate taxing authority.
