Odds of winning an instant prize will depend upon the number and timing of eligible entries. All prizes must be accepted as awarded and are not transferable or convertible to cash. Sponsor and/or its representatives reserve the right at any time and for any reason to substitute a prize of equivalent or greater value.

INSTANT WIN PRIZE WINNER SELECTION:

There will be two hundred and sixty-three (254) random, computer-generated winning times during the Promotion Period. If you are the first player to submit a Form in the Promotion at or after one of the randomly-generated times, you will be a potential instant winner of an Instant Win Prize.

WINNER NOTIFICATION AND SELECTION:

All potential winners of instant prizes will automatically receive a message after entry informing them that they are a potential winner of an Instant Win Prize. To be confirmed as an Instant Win Prize winner, each potential Instant Win Prize winner you must follow the instructions, which will require the potential Instant Win Prize winner to: (i) correctly answer, unaided, a mathematical skill-testing question; and (ii), for potential winners of the Suite Rental or a 2016 Authentic Vancouver Whitecaps FC Player Jersey, must sign and return a declaration and release form (the “Release Form”) confirming compliance with these Official Rules and Regulations and acceptance of the applicable instant Win Prize as awarded. In the event that a potential winner is a Minor, his/her parent or legal guardian must act on his/her behalf in all matters concerning this Contest, including completing the Release Form. The Release Form must be returned within the time period specified on the Release Form or the Instant Win Prize may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, be forfeited (and, if forfeited, nothing will be substituted in its place). If a potential Instant Win Prize winner: (a) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (b) cannot accept (or is unwilling to accept) the applicable Instant Win Prize as awarded for any reason; and/or (c) is determined to be in violation of these Official Rules (all as determined by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion); then he/she may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, be disqualified (and, if disqualified, will forfeit all rights to the applicable Instant Win Prize) and, and that instant win prize will not be awarded. .

Once confirmed as a winner, the winner will receive an instant message with information on how to claim their prize.
