c.) In any random draw, if a Random Winner is not an Eligible Entry (if the entry does not comply with these Official Rules and Regulations, which includes the eligibility requirements in section 1 and all other requirements), a new Eligible Entry will be randomly selected until all 25 Random Winners for that week are Eligible Entries.

The odds of winning are related to the number of entries that we receive and the number of entries that you submit. The odds of any one person winning a prize will decrease as the number of entries we receive increases. Each winning person will be ineligible for further draws during the Contest. No person may win more than one prize in the Contest, regardless of the number of entries submitted.
