If a prize is deemed forfeited, then the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Entries received as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the prize for any reason. Each prize will only be awarded to a verified winner. Any unclaimed prizes will be awarded in a random drawing to be held as necessary, but no later than four days after the Drawing.
