SWEEPSTAKES DESCRIPTION: ABC’s Lucky 7 Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) begins on September 13, 2013 at 12:01:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on September 24, 2013 at 9:00:00 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Period”). Entry in the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of American Broadcasting Companies, Inc., 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Burbank, CA 91521 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: Sweepstakes is open only to legal U.S. residents residing within the 50 United States and District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older (or the age of majority in the jurisdiction of their primary residence, whichever is older) at the time of entry. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, Big Honcho Media, LLC (the “Promotion Administrator”), and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, and any persons involved in the creation, development or production (including cast and crew) of the Lucky 7 television show (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members (spouses and parents, children and siblings and their spouses, regardless of where they live) or members of the same households (whether related or not) of all such foregoing individuals are not eligible to enter or win a prize. Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law.
HOW TO ENTER: To enter the Sweepstakes, visit the website www.abclucky7.com (the “Website”) during the Promotion Period, complete the entry form with your full name, email address, telephone number, zip code and date of birth, and follow the on-screen instructions to submit your entry (“Entry”). As each Entry is received by Sponsor, it will be assigned a unique code to identify the Entry (the “Entry Identifier”) within Sponsor’s database. The Entry Identifier is for internal use only and will not be provided to entrants.
Once your Entry has been successfully submitted, and an Entry Identifier has been assigned within Sponsor’s database, a randomly generated sequence of seven (7) two-digit numbers (“Ticket Numbers”) will appear on screen on the Website entry page. This constitutes your Entry Ticket. The Ticket Numbers appearing on your Entry Ticket are different from the Entry Identifier assigned to your Entry in Sponsor’s database. The Entry Ticket assigned to each unique Entry will also be sent via email to the email address provided during the entry process. All requested information on the entry form at the Website must be completed to enter and to be eligible to win. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Proof of entering information at the Website is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry.
NOTE: Entry must be made by the entrant, only at the Website. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other website or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.
All Entries must be received by the end of the Promotion Period in order to be eligible. The Website’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for entries in this Sweepstakes. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes. The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. Limit one (1) entry per person per day during the Promotion Period, regardless of the number of email addresses or accounts a person may have. Each eligible entrant may receive a maximum of twelve (12) entries into the Sweepstakes during the Promotion Period. For purposes of these Official Rules a “day” will be defined as beginning at 12:00:00 a.m. (midnight) ET and ending at the following 11:59:59 p.m. ET (except for the first day of the Promotion Period [9/13/13], which begins at 12:01:00 a.m. ET and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. ET) and the last day of the Promotion Period [9/24/13], which begins at 12:00:00 a.m. (midnight) ET and ends at 9:00:00 p.m. ET).
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Immediately following the end of the Promotion Period, one (1) potential Grand Prize winning Entry Identifier will be selected in a random drawing from among all unique Entry Identifiers (each Entry Identifier corresponds to a unique Entry received during the Promotion Period). The Entry that corresponds to the Entry Identifier that is selected in the Random Drawing will be the potential Grand Prize winning Entry.
The Ticket Numbers assigned to that potential Grand Prize winning Entry will be announced, one (1) two-digit number at a time, throughout the first-run broadcast episode of the Lucky 7 television show, which airs at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (9:00 p.m. CT/MT) on September 24, 2013 (the “Episode”); check your local listings for exact show time in your time zone. Ticket Numbers may be displayed in a different sequence from the order of Ticket Numbers assigned during entry and appearing on the Entry Ticket. The potential Grand Prize winner (i.e., the entrant who submitted the unique Entry represented by the Entry Identifier selected in the Random Drawing) will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail, using contact information provided at the time of entry. You do not need to watch the Episode in order to be selected as a potential Grand Prize winner.
You are not a potential winner of the Grand Prize, notwithstanding the Ticket Numbers shown during the Episode, unless your Entry Identifier was selected by a representative of Sponsor in the Random Drawing AND you are contacted by a representative of Sponsor and informed that you are a potential winner. In the unlikely event the Ticket Numbers shown during the Episode are assigned to more than one (1) Entry, the potential Grand Prize winner will be the entrant who submitted the Entry represented by the Entry Identifier selected in the Random Drawing and who was contacted by a representative of Sponsor. In the event of a dispute over who submitted an Entry, the Entrant will be deemed to be the registered owner of the email address from which the Entry was submitted. If Sponsor, in its sole discretion, determines that multiple entrants have a valid claim to the prize, Sponsor may elect to randomly select one (1) winner from among such entrants to receive the prize; in such event, only that randomly selected entrant shall be declared the winner and there will be no other winners. Under no circumstances will more than one (1) prize be awarded.
In the event that the Episode is preempted, postponed or cancelled for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to postpone the announcement of the winning Ticket Numbers to a later date, contact the potential winner as described in these Official Rules and/or post the Ticket Numbers associated with the potential Grand Prize winning entry on the Website.
Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within five (5) days of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to ten (10) potential winners of the prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. Any potential prize winner must execute and have notarized an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within three (3) business days of transmission of such documents, potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential prize winner: is found to be ineligible; has not complied with these Official Rules; does not respond to the first notification attempt within five (5) days as set forth above; does not returned the completed Prize Claim Documents within three (3) business days of transmission; or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
PRIZE/APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE: One (1) Grand Prize is available. The Grand Prize consists of $100,000. There are no other prizes.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: The Grand Prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize. The Grand Prize winner will receive an IRS form 1099 for the total amount of the Grand Prize following the date the Grand Prize is awarded.
GENERAL: Acceptance of a prize constitutes prize winner’s permission for Sponsor and its designees to use prize winner’s name, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical information, statements and address (city and state) for advertising and/or publicity purposes worldwide and in all forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further compensation, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes or the announcement of the Ticket Numbers if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein. In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes.

Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
