A secondary prize will be awarded to the Participant who referred the winner of the respective Daily Prize (the “Referring Participant”), so long as the Referring Participant enters one of the five Daily Drawings (the “Referring Participant Daily Prize”). In the event the Referring Participant does not enter one of the five Daily Drawings or the winner of the respective Daily Prize registered for the App without a referral, an alternate winner (“Second Chance Winner”) will be chosen from the Participant pool of the respective Daily Drawing (“Second Chance Daily Prize”).
During the Promotion Period, on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th of each month, there will be one main weekly prize awarded (“Weekly Prize”) and one secondary prize awarded. A secondary prize will be awarded to the Referring Participant who referred the winner of the respective Weekly Prize, so long as the Referring Participant enters the respective Weekly Drawing (the “Referring Participant Weekly Prize”).

During the Promotion Period, on the last day of each month, there will be one main Monthly prize awarded (“Monthly Prize”) and one secondary prize awarded. A secondary prize will be awarded to the Referring Participant who referred the winner of the Monthly Prize, so long as the Referring Participant plays the Monthly Drawing (the “Referring Participant Monthly Prize”). In the event the Referring Participant does not enter the Monthly Drawing or the winner of the Monthly Prize registered for the App without a referral, a Second Chance Winner will be chosen from the Participant pool of the Monthly Drawing (“Second Chance Monthly Prize”).
During the Promotion Period, for each month in the Sweepstakes there will be a Leaderboard (“Monthly Leaderboard”). The Monthly Leaderboard is a cumulative sum of matching emojis picked across all drawings - Daily, Weekly and Monthly. The Monthly Leaderboard is not based on winning in any particular drawing but the total number of emojis that were matched. For purposes of scoring of the Monthly Leaderboard, a match of a multiplier emoji in any drawing counts as two (2) total matches. The top 5,000 places on the Monthly Leaderboard will win a prize. In the event two or more Participants are tied for a place, the Participants will split the prize.
Example: Two Participants are tied for 4th. Two Participants split the 4th and 5th place prizes.
Example: Ten Participants are tied for 5,000th. Ten Participants split the 5,000th place prize.
Prizes to be awarded for the Sweepstakes will be stated in the App and range from $5.00 to $10,000.00 (USD).
6. Odds/Drawings/Winner Notification:
Daily, Weekly and Monthly Drawings
Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received during a specific drawing. In the event the system generates the same 5 emojis for two or more Participants and those 5 emojis represent the winning Entry, the prize will be split evenly between the Participants with the winning Entry. The total number of combinations are 1,712,304. The odds of winning are equal regardless of method of entry or source of tickets. Playing the Slots App does not improve odds of winning. Prize drawings will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding in all respects.

One attempts for a new alternate will be conducted per Prize. If attempt fails, unclaimed Prize(s) will not be awarded. There will be no alternate prize winners for secondary prizes. There will be no alternate Monthly Leaderboard Prize winners due to the cumulative nature of the Monthly Leaderboard. If a potential Prize winner does not claim the Prize, the unclaimed Prize will not be awarded.
7. ID Verification and Declaration of Eligibility/Liability Release and Publicity Release: Each potential prize winner will be required to scan a valid driver license or government-issued identity card to verify identity and eligibility.
