1.    PROMOTION DESCRIPTION: The Jack Link’s® Wild Xbox Promotion (the “Promotion”) begins on 11/7/17 at 12:00:00 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on 3/31/18 at 11:59:59 PM (ET) (the "Promotion Period").  Participation in the Promotion does not constitute participation in any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes.  By participating in the Promotion, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Link Snacks Inc., One Snack Food Lane, P.O. Box 397, Minong, WI  54859 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.

 

2.    ELIGIBILITY:  Open only to legal United States residents residing in the fifty (50) United States and District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older.  Eligible entrants who are less than the legal age of majority in their state of primary residence (a “minor”) must obtain their parent or legal guardian’s permission to participate in the Promotion.  Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, TPG Rewards (“Administrator”), their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each are not eligible to participate in the Promotion.  Promotion is void where prohibited by law.  Microsoft is not a sponsor of this promotion and is not responsible for its execution or administration.

 

3.    HOW IT WORKS:

 

There are two (2) ways to participate in the Promotion:

 

a)    Text Message: From your SMS enabled wireless device, text keyword “WILD” (“Keyword”) to the short code 86677 (the “Short Code”).  You will receive a reply text including a link to participate in the Promotion.  Click through the link to be redirected to game play and follow the on-screen instructions to provide your email address and date of birth and see if you are a winner, subject to verification of eligibility.  You must follow all instructions in order to be eligible for a prize.  You will be notified instantly upon completion of participation as to whether or not you are a potential winner, with instructions on how to verify your eligibility and claim the prize.  You may receive several text messages in response, including legal disclaimers and options to receive future promotional text messages from Sponsor.  You may opt-out of receiving future messages at any time by sending the word “STOP” to the Short Code.  The text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the major wireless service providers in the United States, but Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate, and the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages.  Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability.  Message and data rates may apply.  Wireless service providers may charge entrants for each text message, including any error message that is sent and received in connection with the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan.  Entrants should consult their wireless service provider’s pricing plan for details.  Proof of text messaging the Short Code is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry.  Entering by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning.

 

b)    Online: During the Promotion Period, Go to www.wildgamingpromo.com  (the “Website”) and follow the on-screen instructions to provide your email address and date of birth, and see if you are a winner, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  You must follow all instructions in order to be eligible for a prize.  You will be notified instantly upon completion of participation as to whether or not you are a potential winner, with instructions on how to verify your eligibility and claim the prize.

 

Except as contemplated in these Official Rules, personal information collected in connection with this Promotion will be used in accordance with Sponsor’s Privacy Policy at https://www.jacklinks.com/privacy-policy.  Limit one (1) entry per person and/or per email address per day.  For purposes of these Official Rules, a “day” is defined as any twenty-four (24) hour period during the Promotion Period beginning at 12:00:00 AM (ET) and ending at 11:59:59 PM (ET).

 

Prize Winner Determination: One (1) computer generated winning time will be randomly generated for each prize available.  If you are the first person to participate at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a potential winner of the prize indicated, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.  If you are a potential winner, you will be provided with instructions on how to claim your prize.  If you receive a message that contains any message other than a winning prize message, you are not a prize winner.  Odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible plays and the time and date upon which they are completed.

 

The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Promotion.  The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.  NOTE: Participation must be by the participant and only as directed in these Official Rules.  Participation by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any website or other platform, including but not limited to commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Promotion.  The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited and will lead to disqualification.

 

In the event of a dispute over the identity of a potential winner, entry will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address provided at time of registration.  "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

 

If due to technical, production or other errors, more prizes are claimed than intended, the intended prize will be awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid claims.  No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded.  ALL POTENTIAL WINNING PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING.  A "SCREEN SHOT" IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF A WINNING PLAY AND/OR PRIZE. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE PLATFORM SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND SAID PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.  SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.  The submission of a prize claim is solely the responsibility of the participant.

If the Promotion is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select winner(s) of any remaining prizes in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect registered participants as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination.  If because of technical, typographical, mechanical or other errors or for any other reason, there are more claims for a prize than prizes offered as stated in these Official Rules, a random drawing will be held among all eligible claimants in such category to award such prize.  Inclusion in such drawing(s) shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.  In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
