Drawing and Odds of Winning: As soon as practicable following the Entry Period, the Sponsor will first select one (1) potential winner of the Grand Prize and then two (2) potential winners of the First Prizes in a random drawing of all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. The Sponsor will attempt to notify each potential winner via email. If a potential winner does not respond within twenty-four (24) hours of first contact or is not eligible or does not wish to accept the prize (as described below), the Sponsor may disqualify that potential winner and select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining eligible entries received. Limit one prize per entrant; for the avoidance of doubt, no entrant may win more than one of the Grand Prize or a First Prize.
- Requirements of Potential Winners: A potential winner may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the "Affidavit/Release") where permitted by law within forty-eight (48) hours of being notified. If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, he/she will be disqualified and an alternate entrant may be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received.
- Prizes: One (1) grand prize will be awarded and will consist of a 2019 San Francisco Forty Niners-signed football (the "Grand Prize") and two (2) first prizes will be awarded and each first prize will consist of a practice used "The Duke" NFL Football . The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. The approximate retail value ("ARV") of the Grand Prize is Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) and the ARV of each First Prize is Two Hundred Dollars ($200.00). All prize details will be determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. Prizes are not transferable or refundable and must be accepted as awarded by winner. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize (or component thereof) with another prize (or component thereof) of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.
