A random draw will be conducted at the offices of the LCBO at 2 p.m. E.T. on September 3, 2020 from amongst all eligible Entries received during the Contest Period. The Selected Entrant will be contacted by the Contest Sponsors at the email address or telephone number associated with his/her LCBO purchase order, or as submitted with his/her No Purchase Mail-In Entry, following his/her selection. If a Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or fails to respond within one (1) week of the first attempt of contact by the Contest Sponsors, he/she will be considered to have forfeited his/her Prize and will be disqualified and another Entrant may be selected, in the sole discretion of the Contest Sponsors, from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with a Selected Entrant, there are no more eligible Entries, or there is insufficient time to award the Prize, whichever comes first.  In the event that an alternate Entrant is required to be selected, this same Winner Selection process will apply to such alternate Entrant. The Contest Sponsors will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact any Selected Entrant.

No telephone contact, email or other correspondence will be entered into in connection with this Contest, except with the Selected Entrant.


To be declared a Prize Winner, the Selected Entrant must answer correctly, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question posed in a format of the Contest Sponsors’ choosing.  The Selected Entrant will be required to sign a Declaration, Release and Waiver Form (the “Release Form”) confirming compliance with the Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize, as awarded, without substitution, and releasing the Released Parties from any liability in connection with the Prize or the Contest.  The Selected Entrant must return the signed Release Form in order to be granted the Prize.

If a Selected Entrant does not meet all of the Contest requirements, fails to correctly answer the mathematical skill-testing question or does not sign and return the Release Form to the Contest Sponsors within the time frame specified, that Selected Entrant will forfeit his/her Prize and the Contest Sponsors shall be entitled, but not obligated, to select another Entrant from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with an Entrant or there are no more eligible Entries, whichever comes first. This process may continue until the Prize has been awarded or there is insufficient time to permit the awarding of the Prize. The Contest Sponsors are not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact a Selected Entrant.

The Contest Sponsors will contact the Prize Winner following receipt of his/her signed Release Form to arrange for delivery of his/her Prize.
