Odds of Winning: Prior to the Contest Opening Date, Sponsor will randomly select five (5) winning numbers between 1 and 10,000,000. Every PIN entered is turned into a unique random number between 1 and 10,000,000. The said unique number is assigned to the entrant and checked against the list of 5 pre-selected winning numbers. If that unique random number matches with a pre-selected winning number, the entrant will win one (1) of five (5) Grand Prizes. Therefore, the odds of winning a Grand Prize are 1 in 2,000,000 (or 10,000,000/5 = 2,000,000).
If, at the end of the Contest Period, If none of the five (5) pre-selected winning unique numbers have been assigned to an eligible PIN entry, a random draw will take place in accordance with section 4 below.
