Computer-generated potential winning times will be randomly selected throughout the promotional periods and prizes will be randomly assigned to the winning times. If you are the first person to play the slot machine at or after a winning time during the promotional periods, you will win a cash prize.
The slot machine is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the actual odds of winning. For the actual odds of winning a prize, see the Sweepstakes Facts in these Official Rules.
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 No. 2260, 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 Cash Prize
Acceptance of prize constitutes permission to use winner’s name voice and likeness for advertising and publicity purposes, including winner’s screen name, avatar, city, state, games played and any prize won without additional compensation, unless prohibited by law.
