  1. 6.         Winner Selection: After the Promotion Period has ended, Sponsor or Administrator will review all entries, regardless of method, and the one (1) entry with the correct guess/answer, or the one (1) entry that comes closest, to the actual number of candy pieces inside the Piñata Pumpkin Patch Cake, without going over, will be the potential Grand Prize winner, pending eligibility confirmation. In the event there is more than one (1) entry with the same potential winning guess/answer, a random drawing will be performed from amongst those tied potential winning guesses/answers, in order to select the one (1) potential Grand Prize winner. Following Grand Prize winner determination, Sponsor or Administrator will, utilizing the same method as above, determine ten (10) potential First Prize winners, in accordance with the next ten (10) closest guesses/answers (utilizing random drawing(s) to break any ties). Once confirmed, as detailed below, the Grand Prize winner will receive one (1) year of free Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cakes (fulfilled as five (5) one hundred dollar ($100) Baskin-Robbins Cards). The calculation for the Grand Prize was reached by providing forty-one dollars ($41) per month for twelve (12) months, which would cover one (1) Ice Cream Cake per month for an entire year. Each First Prize winner, once confirmed as detailed below, will receive one (1) thirty-one dollar ($31) Baskin-Robbins Gift Card. The total ARV of all “Prizes” (First Prizes and Grand Prize) available to be awarded in this Promotion is eight hundred and ten dollars ($810). In the event there are not enough eligible Entries to award all applicable Prize(s), Sponsor retains the right not to award such Prize(s) (for the avoidance of doubt, the Grand Prize will be awarded first). The decisions of Administrator and Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to this Promotion. Odds of winning a Prize are dependent upon the total number of eligible Entries received in the Promotion Period. The potential Grand Prize winner will be selected first, followed by the ten (10) potential First Prize winners. There is a limit of one (1) Prize per person, throughout the entire Promotion Period. In no event will Sponsor be responsible for awarding more than the stated number of Prizes herein. Prize conditions may be added or modified by companies providing those portions of the Prize. The Prize restrictions/conditions stated herein are not all-inclusive.
