The selected entrant will then be entered immediately into the Pink Ball Prize Draw for the opportunity to win a cash prize of $10,000,000, or $25,000.

The winner will be awarded the pre-established cash prize value associated with the ball drawn. Only one (1) cash prize will be awarded.

General: Winning a prize is contingent on complying with these Official Rules, including the prize claim conditions set out below. Selected participants and winners of all prizes will remain eligible for all future draws.

Before any potential winner can be declared a winner of any prize, he/she must first (i) correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question (the “Skill-Testing Question”) without assistance of any kind whether mechanical, electronic or otherwise, and (ii) read, execute and return a declaration of eligibility/release of liability (the “Prize Claim Document”) to the redemption centre (the “Redemption Centre”) by the date indicated on the Prize Claim Document.

The Sponsor, Shop4Charity, will attempt to contact the potential winner by telephone within five (5) business days of the applicable draw dates described above or as otherwise determined by Sponsor. Once the potential winner is contacted, the Sponsor will schedule a mutually convenient time for the Sponsor to administer the required Skill-Testing Question to that individual, which must occur within eight (8) business days from the date of first contact. Following which, and provided the selected entrant correctly answers the Skill-Testing Question, the Sponsor will send that individual (via regular mail delivery and/or email to the addresses confirmed by the potential winner), the Prize Claim Document that the potential winner will be required to complete and return to the Redemption Centre, in a postage-paid envelope which the Redemption Centre will provide to him/her, by email or by fax. The Prize Claim Document will contain, among other things, a declaration of eligibility and compliance with the Official Rules, a liability release and a publicity release and must be actually received (properly completed and signed by the potential winner) by the Redemption Centre on or before the date specified in the Prize Claim Document. When the Redemption Centre receives the completed Prize Claim Document, the Redemption Centre will begin the verification process described in these Official Rules. It is planned that the Redemption Centre will inform the applicable entrant, if he/she is not a verified winner, within approximately twenty (20) business days from the date the completed Prize Claim Document and any other required materials are actually received by the Redemption Centre. If the potential winner is verified as a winner, the Redemption Centre will award the prize.
