In the unlikely event that, due to a system malfunction or other technical error, more than one person is identified as a winner of a single instant-win prize, PCH reserves the right to hold a random drawing to determine the winner of the prize.

For Giveaway Nos. 4029 and 4591, we reserve the right to replenish the prize if it has been awarded to enable continuance of the Giveaway. In the event of replenishment, a new winning time will be randomly selected during the remainder of the promotional period.

5. How to Claim a Prize
You will be notified immediately if you have won a prize. To claim your prize, you must follow the instructions in your notification and complete and submit your claim form by the date and time indicated on the form. Failure to timely and properly claim any prize will result in forfeiture. Non-replenishable forfeited prizes will be automatically returned to the prize pool and made available to be won again. The first person to play at or after the time that a forfeited prize is made available again will win that prize. Replenishable prizes (as described in Section 4) that go unclaimed will not automatically be returned to the prize pool. At our discretion, if a replenishable prize goes unclaimed, it may be either replenished, returned to the prize pool, or awarded in a random drawing among all eligible entries at Giveaway end. At least one prize in the amount promoted as a replenishable prize is guaranteed to be awarded during the promotional period, either as an instant win or in a random drawing at Giveaway end. If an unclaimed replenishable prize is returned to the prize pool, the first person to play at or after the time that is returned will win that prize. All personally-identifiable information submitted by any winner to claim a prize is subject to the Privacy Policy.
