8. Sweepstakes Drawing:
At the end of the Sweepstakes Period, the potential Sweepstakes prize winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received by Administrator, an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection/verification of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. The potential Sweepstakes prize winners will be notified by telephone and/or mail and/or e-mail, using the contact information provided or collected at the time of registration. Sponsor shall have no liability for any Sweepstakes prize winner notification that is lost, stolen, intercepted, or not received by a potential Sweepstakes winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential Sweepstakes prize winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours from the first notification attempt, or if the Sweepstakes prize or Sweepstakes prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential Sweepstakes prize winner, such potential Sweepstakes prize winner forfeits his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. In the event that a potential winner of a Sweepstakes prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to two (2) potential Sweepstakes prize winners in accordance with the above procedure, after which the Sweepstakes prize in question may go un-awarded if it remains unclaimed. The odds of winning a Sweepstakes prize depend upon the total number of eligible entries received in each Sweepstakes during the Sweepstakes Period. A purchase will not increase the odds of winning.
9. Game Prize Claim:
To claim a Game prize, make a photocopy for your records of the winning Game piece. Send your entire original winning Game piece (facsimiles and reproductions not accepted) along with your name, signature, date of birth (in mm/dd/yyyy format), complete address, and daytime/evening telephone numbers clearly hand-printed on a 3" x 5" card and mail in a business-size envelope via certified mail (return receipt requested) to the following address: Little Hug Barrel Full of Cash Promotion, P.O. Box 6011, Morton Grove, IL, 60053..

GAME PRIZE CLAIM MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5/30/15. Proof of mailing the Game prize claim does not constitute proof of delivery to/receipt by the Administrator of the Game prize claim. Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for a late, lost, stolen, damaged, incomplete, misaddressed, postage-due or misdirected Game prize claim. Any game prizes not claimed by 5/30/15 will not be awarded.
Winning Game pieces are null and void and will be rejected if not obtained in accordance with these Official Rules and/or through legitimate authorized channels or if any part is determined by the Administrator to be illegible, reproduced, counterfeited, mutilated or tampered with in any way or if any game piece contains printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors. Any attempt to forge game piece, pilferage of game pieces or to defraud Sponsor in any way will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and entrant will be disqualified from participation.
By participating in the Promotion or receiving a Promotion prize, you release and hold harmless the Promotion Entities and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies and each of their respective parent companies and each such company's officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the "Released Parties") from and against any liability, claim, loss, damage, or cause of action arising out of or relating to your participation in the Promotion or receipt, acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of any prize.
