In the event that a Houston Texans player scores a receiving touchdown in the applicable game during the Promotion Period (each, a “Touchdown Event”), a random drawing will occur from amongst all three (3) First Prize winners during that applicable Entry Period to determine one (1) Grand Prize winner. The Grand Prize winner will receive both a First and a Grand Prize. Maximum one Grand Prize (1) Prize Drawing per Game, regardless of the number of Touchdown Events that occur during said game, and maximum twenty (20) Grand Prize Drawings regardless of the number of Touchdown Events that occur during the Promotion Period.
The Prize Drawings will be conducted by Administrator, an independent sweepstakes management company. Potential winners will be notified by email and will be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and (where legal) Publicity Release within one (1) day of date of issuance of notification. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential First and Grand Prize winners will be declared the official First and Grand Prize winners of the Sweepstakes (hereafter, “First Prize Winners” and “Grand Prize Winners”). In the event that any selected potential Prize Winner declines the prize, is not eligible to accept the prize, does not comply with the terms of these Official Rules or if Administrator is unable to contact a potential winner after three attempts, his/her prize opportunity will be forfeited and Administrator, at its sole discretion and time permitting, may randomly select an alternate potential winner from among all remaining eligible entries received as of the applicable Prize Drawing as set forth above. Non-winning eligible entries from one Prize Drawing will carry-over and be eligible for each subsequent Prize Drawing.
