On or about Monday, April 14, 2014, Wild will randomly select one (1) potential winner from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period.

Odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received by Wild in the Sweepstakes.

The entrant selected must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements, including but not limited to the Travel Restrictions listed below.

The Affidavit/Release must be returned by the date and/or time indicated within the Affidavit/Release. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within two (2) days of the first attempt to contact him/her, or if the potential winner fails to return the Affidavit/Release within the specified time, or if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if the potential winner does not comply with the Official Rules or Travel Restrictions, then the potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner selected by Wild in his/her place from among all eligible non-winning entries received by Wild for the Sweepstakes. In such event, an alternate potential prize winner will be notified as described above and will be required to return the required documents as described above; provided, however, Wild may alter the above timing to meet its Sweepstakes schedule.
