DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION: The potential Grand Prize Winner will be selected in a random drawing conducted by the Sweepstakes Administrator. The Grand Prize drawing will be conducted no later than June 15, 2021. The prize will be drawn, at its earliest, within one week of all 400+ spots being filled for the contest. Odds of winning the Grand Prize will depend on the total number of eligible entries received (via Entry Method 1,2,3 & 4) throughout the Sweepstakes Period.

ODDS: There are a guaranteed minimum of 400 spots available in this contest. For every $10 spent on the website, one (1) entry will be earned by the user. Participants of Royal Rally – Triple Crown, who have paid their deposit before the contest period ends, will receive five (5) entries in this contest. The 400 minimum spots in the contest are based on the value of the grand prize, hard-cost of merchandise, legal fees and advertising for the contest. This breaks down to 5 entries per team registered for Triple Crown x 60 registered teams (300 entries), plus 1 entry for every $10 spent on Royal Rally merchandise, or other means of entry (100 entries).
