HOW TO ENTER:
Downloading and Registering for a Contest
Participating in a Contest
As used herein, a “Remaining Contestant” refers to any Contestant who has not been eliminated from the applicable Contest pursuant to these Official Rules, and is still eligible to potentially win a Prize.
A Contest ends upon the earlier of the following occurring: (i) there is only one (1) Remaining Contestant who has correctly answered the Question most recently asked by the Host, unless the “All Incorrect Exception” set forth below applies; or (ii) at least twenty (20) Questions have been asked by the Host and there is one (1) or more Remaining Contestant after Question #20.
ALL INCORRECT EXCEPTION: If ALL Remaining Contestants respond incorrectly to the most recently asked Question, then those Remaining Contestants will not be eliminated, and instead, the Host will continue asking additional Question(s) until one or more of those Remaining Contestants answers a question correctly. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event will there be more than twenty-five (25) Questions presented in the Contest. If all Remaining Contestants answer the 25th Question incorrectly, then the Contest will end and all of those Remaining Contestants will be considered winners of the applicable Contest.
In all instances, if there are multiple winners of a Contest (i.e., multiple Contestants who have not been eliminated according to these Official Rules when the applicable Contest ends), all such winners will split the Prize in equal shares, as calculated by Sponsor.
THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE (1) GAME PLAY PER CONTESTANT / CELLULAR TELEPHONE NUMBER IN EACH CONTEST. SPONSORíS DETERMINATION OF QUESTIONS AND CORRECT/INCORRECT RESPONSES ARE FINAL AND NOT SUBJECT TO APPEAL.
For purposes of this Promotion, a Game Play is "received" online when the Sponsor's server records the Contestant's Game submission information. Proof of sending (such as an automated computer receipt confirming Game Play or "That's correct" or "That's incorrect" messages) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of a Game submission for purposes of a Contest. Illegible and/or incomplete Game submissions and Game submissions submitted by Contestants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Those who do not follow all of the instructions, or abide by these Official Rules or other instructions of Sponsor may be disqualified.
AS STATED ABOVE, THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE (1) GAME PLAY ACCEPTED PER PERSON/CELLULAR TELEPHONE NUMBER IN A SPECIFIC CONTEST.
The Sponsor's clock shall be the official timekeeper for this Promotion
PRIZES: one (1) prize (the “Prize”) is available to be awarded in each separate Contest.
The amount of the total Prize available to be won in a given Contest will be equal to the announced total winnings of the celebrity contestants who completed gameplay during the initial television broadcast of the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” television show (“Show”) on the specific date corresponding to each Contest (as detailed above) on the ABC Television Network (e.g., walked away, answered a question incorrectly and/or won the One Million Dollar [$1,000,000] Show grand prize). For example, the total Prize available to be won for the Week 5 Contest will be equal to the announced total winnings of the celebrity contestants who completed gameplay during the initial television broadcast of the Show on May 7, 2020. For the avoidance of doubt, any amounts won during replayed episodes or episodes exhibited other than on ABC Television Network will not be included in the Prize available for the applicable Contest unless otherwise specified by Sponsor. For example: if the Show's celebrity contestants who completed games on the episode of the Show corresponding to the given Contest (scheduled to be initially broadcast earlier on the same date) win Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) in combined winnings, the winner(s) of this Contest will also win or equally share in (if due to a tie, there is more than one (1) winner) Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) for that specific Contest. Only completed games initially aired on the applicable episode of the Show will count towards calculation of the Prize for the applicable Contest. Show Contestants who start a game, but don't complete the game and will be returning the following episode of the Show to continue their game DO NOT count toward this Contest's Prize calculation. The Sponsor's determination of the amount of the total Prize available to be won in each Contest shall be final.
All federal, state and local tax liabilities, if any, are the responsibility of the Prize winners. Each Contest winner's acceptance of a Prize constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) for Sponsor and its designees to use the winner's name, address (city and state), likeness, voice, statements and any other personal characteristics for any purpose, including without limitation advertising, promotion and publicity purposes worldwide in perpetuity, in any medium or format now known or hereafter created, without additional compensation, notification, permission or limitation, and such Contest winner hereby releases Sponsor and its designees from any liability with respect to such use.
