OFFICIAL RULES

Sweepstakes No. WDZ001

 

A limit of ten entries total is allowed per individual and per e-mail address/phone number for this promotion unless otherwise specified. Subsequent entries determined to be submitted from the same email address/phone number or from the same individual using multiple email addresses in violation of this rule will be declared ineligible.

All entries received by 11:59 P.M., MDT, 2/28/18* from the specified entry methods will be eligible for our Product Sweepstake (Sweepstake No. WDZ001). (*Winners may be determined earlier.) You will automatically be entered into this sweepstake by completing and submitting the sweepstakes entry form. Upon timely entry, your assigned name/number will be fully eligible to win. Entries submitted after the deadline will be deemed invalid. The name/number associated with this sweepstakes that matches the winning number for Sweepstakes No. WDZ001 wins.

You may receive multiple entry opportunities into our sweepstakes. Various prizes/prize values may be presented to the public. The winning entry will be eligible for the prize configuration listed herein. A winner’s prize may be supplemented up to equivalent to the maximum amount of the sweepstakes at J’s Costume & Clothing’s option.

Unless otherwise specified,if the matching winning number from this sweepstakes has not been returned at sweepstake end, the minimum registered prize alone is guaranteed to be awarded to an alternate winner by second chance random drawing among eligible entries at sweepstake end. In the event that the winning number from a winning entry is duplicated, there will be a random drawing among such inadvertently duplicated numbers to determine a winner. In case of a dispute, winning entry will be deemed made by the holder of an established e-mail account/phone number associated with the entry.

The established purpose of this promotion is to help raise funds for a charity. The charity amount donated will be chosen by J’s Costume & Clothing. With this purpose in mind, the Prize specification will follow a tiered setup where the prize is determined by the final total of the donations received. (Not based on individual donations. No purchase necessary. A purchase will not increase your odds of being selected.)  All prizes distributed will be selected and distributed at the discretion of J’s Costume & Clothing. This tier will repeat as donations exceed the stated donation levels, meaning that a higher total final donation amount may imply more than one winner at the discretion of J’s Costume & Clothing.  Potential additional winners will be determined based on division of the total final donation by the maximum tier of $400. It will not be divided based on prize requests or lower tiers, unless otherwise determined by J’s Costume & Clothing.  (e.g. Total Final donations collected are $832. Maximum tier specified is $400. $832 can be broken down as two tier 5 winners and one tier 1 winner. Total of three winners.)

 

The tier system is as follows:

(Total Final Donations in dollars / potential prize for selected winner)

1- $0-50 / Resin Wand

2- $51-125 / Wood Wand

3- $126-180 / Doll Cloak or Apron

4- $181-250 / Kids Cloak

5- $250-400 / Adult Cloak

($401+ Repeat tiers as additional winners)

 

Prizes will be distributed as follows: If the matching winning number for Sweepstakes No. WDZ001 is assigned to a timely entrant, the first winner will receive a prize equal to the highest available tier according to the specified tier system and total final donation amount. Subsequent potential winners will follow the same established pattern if the donation final total exceeds $400.  The number of potential winners may be determined by the established tier system and the total final donation amount, at the discretion of J’s Costume & Clothing. (e.g. Total Final donations collected are $832. $400+$400+$32 which signifies three potential winners. The first winner gets to choose a tier 5 prize, or agreed upon equivalent. The second winner gets to choose a tier 5 prize, or agreed upon equivalent. The third winner gets to choose a tier 1 prize, or agreed upon equivalent.)  All prize selections and additional winner availability is subject to change at the discretion of J’s Costume & Clothing. Each winner is limited to one prize. The present value of Sweepstakes No. WDZ001 may vary depending on processing costs, shipping costs, or at the discretion of J’s Costume & Clothing.

Appendix A –

 

In consideration of the physical location of J’s Costume and Clothing, the following information is relevant to Utah residents and entries made in within the state of Utah.

(To see the full legal code, please refer to https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title76/Chapter10/76-10-S1101.html)

 

The anti-gambling/lottery laws established in Utah are listed under section 76-10-1101 of the Utah Criminal Code.  The basis for an activity/event to be legally considered gambling/lottery under Utah legal code deals with three main elements. All three components must be met to be considered gambling/lottery, and thus to be banned in the state of Utah.  Those three main elements are a Prize (something of value), Must be by chance only (contests of skill, for example, are exempt), and Consideration. (Referring to the entry requirements where only certain people are allowed to enter. A reasonable free entry option must be available to exempt an activity/event by this criteria.). This sweepstakes has a reasonable free entry option that opens the entry eligibility to anyone regardless of customer status or purchase/donation. Furthermore, this sweepstakes is also “occasional” and considered “ancillary” to the business, adding a further exemption. Under Utah Criminal Code, this sweepstakes is not banned by section 76-10-1101 and is legal and lawful.

 

Under subsection 1b, this sweepstakes is considered “occasional” (Chapter 157, 2012 General Session) and “ancillary to the primary activity of a business” based on factors listed under subsection 1c; mainly under list items iii, iv, v, & vi, where “one or more” of these allow the event/activity to be considered “ancillary.”

 

Under subsection 2a, this sweepstakes does not fall under the definition of “gambling” due to the “availability and terms of any free play option to engage in the promotional activity”(1c-iii) since there is no requirement to “[risk] anything of value.”

 

Under subsection 7, this sweepstakes does not fall under the definition of “Lottery” due to the free entry option negating the “paid or promised to pay any valuable consideration for the chance of obtaining property…”

 

Appendix B –

 

The purpose of this sweepstakes is to collect donations for charity.  The charity was not specified in the official rules due a plan to contribute to the same charities as the Wizarding DayZ organization, which is subject to change at the discretion of Wizarding DayZ.  For the information of those who donate, the charities currently under consideration for final donation are listed on the Wizarding DayZ website at www.wizardingdayz.com/charity.
