4. DRAWING AND ODDS OF WINNING: One (1) potential winner will be chosen in a random drawing conducted by the Administrator, whose decisions are and shall be final and binding in all respects. Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible Submissions received during the Promotion Period. The potential winner will be notified by the Administrator via Twitter and/or Instagram and will be required to execute a Prize Claim Form. The potential winner must remain in the concert seat or at the venue location identified in the Submission for thirty (30) minutes following the Administrator’s notification; otherwise, the potential winner may forfeit the prize and the prize may be awarded to an alternative winner. A representative of the Sponsor will visit the potential winner’s concert seat or venue location within this thirty (30) minute window to secure execution of a Prize Claim Form and, once the winner is verified by the Sponsor, will award the prize. If, at that time, the potential winner is not located in the concert seat or at the venue location identified in the Submission, is unable to complete the Prize Claim Form as instructed, or is otherwise determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion to be noncompliant with these Official Rules, the potential winner may be disqualified and, at the Sponsor’s discretion and time permitting, the prize may be awarded to an alternative winner.
