Contestants do not have to submit to any promotional sales effort. A contestant’s chance of winning is not increased by any purchase of goods or services or by a payment of any kind. The chance of an entry being the winning entry for any prize is dependent on the number of entries received. There will be only one (1) Grand Prize Winner, one (1) Second Prize Winner, and one (1) Third Prize Winner.
Eligibility: Only natural persons who are residents of one of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia and are at least 21 years of age, who have submitted an Eligible Entry (as defined below), and who are not Ineligible Contestants (as defined below) are eligible to win the Contest (each an “Eligible Contestant”). Each person may enter the Contest only one (1) time at each of the eight (8) entry portals identified under “Entries” below, for a total of eight (8) direct entries. In addition, for each Contestant who submits his/her entry through a portal accessed via a link shared by an Eligible Contestant, that Eligible Contestant will automatically receive five (5) additional entries. There is no limit on the number of automatic additional entries that an Eligible Contestant may receive.
The following persons are not eligible to win the Contest (each an “Ineligible Contestant”): (i) any person who is not an Eligible Contestant (a) at the time they submitted an Eligible Entry, AND (b) at the time their Eligible Entry is drawn in a Drawing; (ii) any person who the Sponsor determines, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, has not strictly complied or does not strictly comply with these Rules; (iii) any employee of the Sponsor or any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with the Sponsor (collectively, “Affiliates”); and (iv) anyone living in the same household as an employee of the Sponsor or its Affiliates. If you win, you will be required to show a valid government issued identification card and such other evidence as the Sponsor may require, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, as proof that you are an Eligible Contestant.
Upon completion of an entry, a Contestant will be presented options for sharing links to the Contest through various social media or through various electronic messaging systems such as email and SMS texts. For each person who comes to the Contest through that Contestant’s shared link and submits an entry himself/herself, the Contestant who shared that link will automatically receive five (5) additional entries.
To be an Eligible Entry, an entry shall be properly, truthfully, and fully completed and submitted, as determined in the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Contest Period: The Contest Period is between May 26, 2019, at 12:00:01 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and March 31, 2020, at 11:59:59 p.m. ET; provided, however, that a resident of any State or States in which registration of the Contest is not required may submit his/her entry beginning on April 11, 2019. Any such early entry will not enhance or diminish the chances to win of that Contestant or of any other Contestant from that or any other State. All timing for this Contest will be based on Eastern Time, and the Sponsor is the official time keeper. The Sponsor will not be responsible for lost, damaged, late, or misdirected entries, or for any events beyond its control, including without limitation website downtime, internet outages, or computer or software malfunctions.
Drawing: Winners will be chosen by random electronic selection (the “Drawing”) held on or about April 2, 2020, at 9:00:01 a.m. ET from among all properly submitted Eligible Entries received. There will be a total of three (3) winners (“Prize Winners”), consisting of one (1) Grand Prize Winner, one (1) Second Prize Winner, and one (1) Third Prize Winner. Seven (7) Entries will be drawn. The first Entry drawn will be the Potential Grand Prize Winner. If he/she is determined to be ineligible or cannot be verified, then the second Entry drawn will become the Potential Grand Prize Winner; otherwise, the second through fifth Entries drawn will become Potential Second Prize Winners; and so forth. If the three Prizes cannot all be awarded among the seven (7) Entries initially drawn, due to ineligibility, inability to verify, Contestant refusing, or for any other reason, additional Drawings may be made within three (3) business days after determination that such additional drawing will be necessary due to ineligibility, inability to verify, or Contestant refusal. In the event any Prize is still unawardable after three drawings, the Sponsor may declare the Contest at an end and withdraw the unawarded Prize(s).
If the Sponsor, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, makes a determination that a Potential Prize Winner was an Eligible Contestant, that person becomes a “Winner.” If the Sponsor, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, makes a determination that a Potential Prize Winner was not an Eligible Contestant, the Contestant who was drawn next in order succeeds to that ineligible Contestant’s place as a Potential Prize Winner. All Potential Prize Winners are subject to verification by the Sponsor, whose determination is final and binding. Potential Prize Winners will be notified by email sent to the email address provided in such Contestant’s Eligible Entry (each a “Winner Notice”), and by telephone call to the telephone number provided in such Contestant’s Eligible Entry (each a “Winner Call”). Only one (1) Winner Notice will be sent and one Winner Call will be made to each Potential Prize Winner. If at any time the Potential Prize Winner is determined by the Sponsor, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, to be an Ineligible Contestant (and regardless of whether such determination is made immediately after conducting the Drawing, only after conducting subsequent investigations, or at any other time), the Sponsor will, without providing notice or a right to cure to such Ineligible Contestant, proceed to the Contestant whose Entry was drawn next in order and thereafter follow the procedures described herein for verifying and notifying a Potential Prize Winner, and will continue to repeat such process until all Winners are chosen or until Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion, to cancel the Contest. If any Potential Prize Winner fails to accept the Prize as described below within forty-eight (48) hours after sending of a Winner Notice and placing of a Winner Call, such Potential Prize Winner shall then become an Ineligible Contestant for this Contest. To accept his/her Prize, a Potential Prize Winner must sign and return to the Sponsor by e-mail the Release of Publicity, Compliance Agreement, Acceptance of Obligations, and Waiver of Liability in the form attached hereto. Failure to execute and deliver that form to Sponsor as stated will result in the forfeiture of the Potential Prize Winner’s eligibility.
Prizes: There will be one (1) Grand Prize, one (1) Second Prize, and one (1) Third Prize.
- The Grand Prize is Unit 612, located on the sixth floor in The Caravelle Resort, in as-is condition. EXCEPT FOR A WARRANTY OF MARKETABLE TITLE, THE GRAND PRIZE CONDOMINIUM SHALL BE CONVEYED IN “AS IS, WHERE IS” CONDITION, WITH ALL FAULTS, AND NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. THE SPONSOR SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR OR INTENDED PURPOSE. Unit 612 is an Oceanfront Efficiency condominium, containing approximately 448 square feet and shall be transferred to the Grand Prize Winner subject to the current year’s ad valorem taxes, a lien but not yet due and payable, and to all covenants, conditions, easements, rights-of-way and other matters of record in the land records of Horry County, South Carolina, provided that such matters do not render the title unmarketable. Any Contestant accepting the Grand Prize will be subject to all income taxes in relation to the receipt of the prize, to all annual property taxes and assessments imposed by local governments on real estate of this type and value and in this location, and to all regime and owner-association fees imposed in connection with the condominium. Further disclosure of obligations and use restrictions will be made available to the Grand Prize Winner not less than three (3) business days after he/she submits the “Compliance Agreement, Publicity Release, Acceptance Of Obligations And Waiver Of Liability.” The total approximate retail value of the Grand Prize, based on the offering price at which such condominiums are currently listed, is USD $79,999; however, there is no guarantee that the unit that would be conveyed as the Grand Prize could be sold for that amount. A Winner who becomes entitled to receive the Grand Prize may elect, by notice to the Sponsor prior to acceptance of the condominium, to receive an alternative cash prize of $50,000. A Winner making such election will still owe all taxes that may be due and payable on the alternative cash prize. If a Winner entitled to receive the Grand Prize makes the election for an alternative cash prize, then that will exhaust the Grand Prize and no condominium will be awarded.

This Prize must be scheduled not less than two weeks in advance of the intended stay, and is subject to availability at the time reservations are made. The Second Prize will have an approximate retail value of USD $2,072. The actual retail value will depend on which unit the Prize Winner selects for his/her stay and on the dates of the stay.

The waiver by the Sponsor of any breach of any term, condition or provision of these Rules shall not be construed as a waiver of any other term, condition or provision of these Rules, nor shall such waiver be deemed grounds for overruling a determination, ruling, decision or judgment made by the Sponsor, or the results of a selection. In the event that any provision of these Rules shall become or be deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or illegal, this shall not render these Rules void or invalid as a whole and, in such event, such provision shall then be changed and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objective of such questionable provision.
