Game Pieces must be redeemed on or before March 31, 2022 (the “Final Redemption Date”), as more fully set forth below.

GAME PIECES ARE VOID IF SCRATCHED IN ADVANCE.

3. HOW TO PLAY INSTANT WIN GAME AND CLAIM A PRIZE/DISCOUNT:
How to Play: During the Game Period, bring UNSCRATCHED Game Piece(s) to a participating Village Inn location during a visit that is separate from the visit when the Game Piece was first obtained. This is always the rule. To be clear, for example, if you obtain your Game Piece during a visit on January 3, 2022, you will need to come back for another visit later that day or another day to scratch it and redeem it. If you do not obtain your Game Piece until January 16, 2022, you will have to make a second visit to scratch off your Game Piece and you must do so before the end of the Redemption Period. DO NOT SCRATCH OFF YOUR GAME PIECE WHEN YOU FIRST RECEIVE IT. EACH GAME PIECE MUST BE SCRATCHED OFF IN FRONT OF A VILLAGE INN MANAGER DURING A SEPARATE VISIT. GAME PIECES ARE VOID IF SCRATCHED OFF IN ADVANCE OR IF NOT SCRATCHED OFF IN FRONT OF A VILLAGE INN MANAGER OR IF SCRATCHED OFF ON THE SAME VISIT (EVEN IF IT IS IN FRONT OF A VILLAGE INN MANAGER). A Village Inn Manager will supervise the customer scratching off the prize section of each Game Piece to reveal the prize/discount, and subject to verification of eligibility, validity of the Game Piece and compliance with these Official Rules, the customer will be entitled to receive the prize/discount indicated on the Game Piece (the scratched off Game Piece shall be referred to herein as the “Instant Win Game Piece”). You are not required to make a purchase before having a Village Inn Manager supervise the scratch off of your Game Piece. GAME PIECES THAT ARE NOT SCRATCHED OFF IN FRONT OF A VILLAGE INN MANAGER AT A PARTICIPATING VILLAGE INN LOCATION OR THAT ARE SCRATCHED OFF DURING THE SAME VISIT THAT THE GAME PIECE WAS RECEIVED WILL BE VOID. ANY GAME PIECES THAT ARE DAMAGED OR TAMPERED WITH IN ANY WAY, AS DETERMINED BY THE SPONSOR IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, WILL BE VOID.

To Claim First or Second Prize/Discount: After the Village Inn Manager has observed the scratch off of the prize/discount revealed on your Instant win Game Piece, follow the Village Inn Manager’s instructions to complete the “Prize Winner Declaration” (as defined below). Only the original Instant Win Game Piece will be accepted. You must claim your First or Second Prize on or before the Final Redemption Date during a separate visit from when you obtained your Game Piece. You will have ten (10) days from the date that your prize/discount is revealed to complete the Prize Winner Declaration. Failure to complete the Prize Winner Declaration or completing the Prize Winner Declaration in a manner that indicates that you were not eligible to participate in the Game, may result in your disqualification. Game Pieces and Instant Win Game Pieces are void if not redeemed on or before March 31, 2022. Valid for Dine-In only. Prizes/discounts may not be combined with any other offers, discounts, prizes or coupons.

To Claim Third through Sixth Prize/Discount: Food prizes must be claimed during a visit to a participating Village Inn restaurant that is separate from the visit when the Instant Win Game Piece was obtained. All prizes/discounts must be claimed on or before the Final Redemption Date. Game Pieces and Instant Win Game Pieces are void after March 31, 2022. Valid for Dine-In only. Prizes/discounts may not be combined with any other offers, discounts, prizes or coupons.

General Prize Claim & Participation Conditions: Limit one (1) food prize/discount redemption per party per visit. In the event of any conflict between these Official Rules and the terms and conditions on the Game Piece or the Instant Win Game Piece, the terms and conditions of these Official Rules shall prevail, govern, and control. Unclaimed prizes or discounts, including food prizes, discounts, and First and Second Prizes, and prizes or discounts claimed other than in compliance with these Official Rules, will not be awarded. No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prizes/discounts of comparable value if a prize listed is unavailable for any reason. Prizes/discounts will be awarded only if the potential winner fully complies with these Official Rules. Prizes/discounts are non-assignable and nontransferable. Each 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. Sponsor may provide Forms 1099 to First Prize winners. Prizes/discounts pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging and other Game materials are for illustrative purposes only. Actual prizes/discounts may vary from the prizes pictured. All details and other restrictions of prizes/discounts not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.

First and Second Prize winners will be subject to additional restrictions. First Prize winners will be sent a gift card after the winner’s execution and the verification of the Prize Winner Declaration (more fully described below), and the gift card must be used by 12/31/22 and can only be used by the winner. Furthermore, the First Prize gift cards have no cash value, cannot be combined with other promotions or discounts, and cannot be used to pay for alcohol, taxes, gratuities, or tips.

The Second Prize will be awarded to each Second Prize winner as a gift card, after the winner’s execution and the verification of the Prize Winner Declaration (more fully described below), and the gift card must be redeemed by 12/31/22 and can only be redeemed by the winner. Furthermore, the Second Prize gift card will have no cash value, cannot be combined with other promotions or discounts, and cannot be used to pay for alcohol, taxes, gratuities, or tips.

Each potential First or Second Prize winner will be required to execute a Declaration of Eligibility/Liability Release, including (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Winner’s Declaration”). If a winner is under the age of majority in such winner’s state of residence (a “minor”), at Sponsor’s option, the applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner, or the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner will be required to ratify and sign Prize Winner’s Declaration. If any potential winner (or any minor winner’s parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return the Prize Winner’s Declaration within ten (10) days of prize notification (or such shorter time if exigencies so require), the winner may be disqualified. If the potential winner’s completion of the Prize Winner’s Declaration established that the potential winner is not eligible to participate in the Game, the winner will be disqualified.

Game Pieces will be deemed null and void and will be rejected if not obtained through authorized, legitimate channels. If any part of any Game Piece is counterfeited, or if the Game Piece comes from other games or promotion, or if any part is illegible, mutilated, eaten or tampered with in any way, or if it contains or reflects printing, typographical, mechanical or other errors, the Game Piece will be rejected and considered void and invalid. Sponsor’s liability for any irregular or erroneous Game Piece shall be limited to replacement of the Game Piece with another Game Piece, while supplies last, and such replacement Game Piece shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under the circumstances. Each participant acknowledges and agrees that the verification decisions of the Sponsor shall be final, binding and conclusive in all matters relating to the Game. Sponsor shall have no liability for any Game Piece or Instant Win Game Piece that is lost or stolen. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded. If, due to printing or production errors or for any reason, more potential winners come forward seeking to claim prizes/discounts in excess of the number of each type of prize/discount set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of prizes/discounts available in the prize category in question may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize(s)/discounts. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. In no event will more than the advertised number of prizes/discounts be awarded.

Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. 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 used in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes.

A potential winner will be notified by text message using the contact information given at the time of entry. 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 forty-eight (48) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or winner 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. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winner(s) of an applicable prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner(s) of such applicable prize after such attempts have been made, if any, the corresponding prize may go unawarded.

E. Sweepstakes Prize Claim Conditions: Sweepstakes Prizes will be awarded only if a potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable and non-transferable. Prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Sweepstakes materials are for illustrative purposes only.

Refusal or failure of the/each prize winner to satisfy the requirements of all necessary and appropriate tax, withholding or other required compliance terms (including Social Security number, IRS Form W­8BEN, IRS Form W­9, or equivalent information), as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion, may result in the/each prize winner forfeiting the prize(s) and an alternate potential winner may be selected in accordance with these Official Rules. Sponsor will award prizes subject to any applicable withholding taxes, and the amount of the prize transferred, as reduced by any applicable withholding taxes, will constitute full payment of the prize, as applicable. Each potential winner will be required to execute a Prize Winner Declaration. If a winner is a minor, at Sponsor’s option, the applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner, or the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner will be required to ratify and sign Prize Winner’s Declaration. If any potential winner (or, in the case of a minor, such minor winner’s parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Winner’s Declaration within ten (10) days of prize notification, the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.
