The odds of being selected as a potential prize winner depend upon the total number of eligible Entries received as of the time of each applicable Prize Drawing.


6.         Prizes/Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): There are seventy (70) prizes available to be awarded in this Sweepstakes. Once confirmed as an official prize winner, as detailed below, prize winner will receive one (1) thirty-one dollar ($31) Baskin-Robbins Gift Card. The ARV of each prize is thirty-one dollars ($31).

Alternatively, if Administrator is able to award the prizes via email and does not require further information to verify the potential winner as an official winner, Administrator may unilaterally confirm each such potential prize winner as an official prize winner and may send their prize to the email address submitted upon registration to the Birthday Club. If a potential prize winner cannot be reached during the period in which he/she is attempted to be contacted, or if Administrator receives a bounce back from the email address, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential prize winner will be selected from among the remaining applicable Entries. Noncompliance, failure to respond to notification attempts, failure to provide any requested information, or returns of any prize/prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification and an alternate potential winner will be selected. By entering, all entrants and the potential/confirmed winners hereby consent to the use by the Released Parties of their Entry and all information contained therein including but not limited to, name, likeness, opinions, images, statements and/or other indicia of persona, and personally identifiable information (collectively “Likeness”), for any and all uses and purposes in any media now known or hereinafter developed throughout the world (including the World Wide Web and on-air) without additional consideration (where legal), consent or prior review, and upon request will provide written consent to such use.
