- Drawing of SPIN ID Numbers: For each Individual Sweepstakes drawing, up to five (5) SPIN ID Numbers for each Show Week (one (1) SPIN ID Number for each day from Monday to Friday only) (described in Section 5 below) will be randomly selected from all eligible SPIN ID Numbers at the time of the Registration Deadline for that particular Individual Sweepstakes (see Chart above). Non-winning eligible SPIN ID Numbers from previous drawings will be retained for subsequent drawings and thus, will be automatically registered in subsequent Individual Sweepstakes. All drawings will be held on the day immediately following the respective Registration Deadline (beginning January 7, 2019), by the Sweepstakes Administrator, an independent judging organization, at their offices in Burbank, CA. At the election of the Show, in its sole discretion, an Individual Sweepstakes drawing may not be conducted on a given drawing date due to production exigencies. For those instances in which a drawing is not conducted on a given drawing date, additional selections will be made in the prior or subsequent drawing or on a new drawing date determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
- Notification and Verification of Potential Winners: For each Show Week, the applicable Individual Sweepstakes will be played in up to five (5) of the Show’s broadcasts (Monday to Friday only), in Sponsor’s sole discretion. On each of such Show broadcasts (Monday through Friday only), if during the Mystery Round, the Mystery Wedge is landed on by a Show contestant who then picks up the wedge and is able to solve the current puzzle, the one (1) SPIN ID Number that was randomly selected in the Individual Sweepstakes drawing for that particular Show will be displayed on screen thereafter. If the Mystery Wedge is not landed on, or if the Show contestant does not pick up the wedge or solve the current puzzle then no prize will be awarded for that respective Show and no SPIN ID will be displayed on screen that night. The registrant associated with a displayed SPIN ID Number is a potential winner (subject to verification and compliance with the Official Rules) and must then confirm his/her SPIN ID Number was displayed by logging in to the Website and following the online instructions to verify whether his/her SPIN ID Number was displayed on the Show (“Online SPIN ID Verification”). If such registrant does not complete such Online SPIN ID Verification within twenty-four (24) hours of when their respective SPIN ID Number was displayed on the Show or has unsubscribed from Wheel Watchers Club membership at the time the Sweepstakes is played, he/she may be disqualified and forfeit any eligibility for that prize. Upon submission of Online SPIN ID Verification information, registrant will be notified as to whether he/she is a potential winner. IT IS A POTENTIAL WINNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO COMPLETE ONLINE VERIFICATION WITHIN THE CORRESPONDING TWENTY-FOUR (24) HOUR VERIFICATION PERIOD TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A PRIZE. NOTE: THE ABILITY TO COMPLETE ONLINE SPIN ID VERIFICATION BY A REGISTRANT WHOSE SPIN ID NUMBER WAS DISPLAYED ON THE SHOW MAY BE AFFECTED IF A SHOW THAT WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO AIR ON A PARTICULAR DATE IS MOVED (REGIONALLY OR NATIONALLY) TO ANOTHER DATE, AS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 2 ABOVE. Eligible registrants can only win for a particular Show by watching the Show on the date it is aired for the particular market in which they reside. If the registrant is a potential winner, such potential winner (or his/her parent/legal guardian if he/she is a resident of a jurisdiction that deems him/her to be a minor) will then be notified by phone within approximately three (3) business days of the date he/she completed his/her Online SPIN ID Verification to complete an Affidavit/Release (described below in Section 7). If a potential winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted, if he/she is found to be ineligible, or if he/she cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, such potential winner will be disqualified, and the prize will not be awarded.
- Prizes/Odds of Winning: If the Show is playing teams, only a single cash prize will be awarded in the applicable Individual Sweepstakes for that particular Show. At no time will more than one (1) cash prize be awarded in an Individual Sweepstakes for a given Show. Only one (1) winner per Individual Sweepstakes per Show will be selected as described below. SPIN ID designated cash prizes: SPIN ID designated cash prizes will be potentially awarded every Show. There is the possibility that up to ninety-five (95) SPIN ID designated prizes (up to five (5) prizes for each applicable Show Week of the Show Period during which the SPIN ID designated prizes are available will be awarded). The SPIN ID designated cash prizes will be $10,000 awarded in the form of a check made out in the name of the winner. Total approximate retail value (“ARV”) of all prizes is up to $950,000. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible registrations received at the time of the Registration Deadline for that particular Individual Sweepstakes drawing and a 1 in 24 chance the Mystery Wedge is landed on by a Show contestant who then picks up the wedge (i.e. is able to correctly guess a letter in the current puzzle) and thereafter correctly solve the current puzzle during an applicable Show. The number of prizes awarded depends on the number of times the Sweepstakes is played and the number of Wheel Watchers Club members with SPIN ID Numbers that were displayed on the Show who complete the verification of their eligibility as described in Section 5 above. All applicable federal, state, or other tax liabilities (including but not limited income taxes) on a prize are the sole responsibility of each winner. No substitution or transfer of any prize is allowed. Any depictions of prizes are for illustrative purposes only. Unclaimed prizes of any kind will not be awarded. Limit one (1) prize per household per thirty (30) day period of the entire Sweepstakes Period. All expenses associated with the receipt or use of a prize not specifically mentioned as being included are excluded and are each winner’s sole responsibility. Prizes and prize notifications will only be mailed/shipped to street addresses in the U.S. (including D.C.). Each winner will receive an IRS Form 1099-MISC from the Sponsor (for the calendar year the prize was received for the total ARV of the prize(s) as determined by the prize coordinator/supplier, or Sponsor, as applicable). If a winner chooses to forfeit his/her prize and thus not receive a 1099, he/she must do so prior to receiving the prize as described in this paragraph. Sweepstakes Administrator is not the supplier or guarantor of any prize.
