Creating a Twitter account is free. To become a registered user of Twitter, visit www.Twitter.com and complete the onscreen instructions. To “follow” @DKSportsbook on www.Twitter.com, login to your Twitter account and select “search” from the tool bar at the top of the homepage. When the search box appears, enter “@DKSportsbook” and then click on the “Search” button. Select “Follow” when the @DKSportsbook icon appears. Next, you must go to the @DKSportsbook Twitter page and retweet the Tweet specified as the “Sweepstakes Tweet”. To retweet it, click the button with two arrows on it that says “retweet.” Any entry received outside of the Entry Period will be deemed ineligible. Normal Internet access, phone, and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. If you are entering via a mobile device and using your wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your wireless carrier may apply.

Limit One (1) entry per person. Anyone found to be using multiple accounts to enter the Sweepstakes or submitting multiple Tweets will be deemed ineligible for the Sweepstakes and all of their entries may be deemed void. Automated and/or third-party entries are prohibited and will be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the permitted number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, addresses, or any other method will void all of such entrant’s entries, and such entrant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. Sponsor shall not be liable for any problems that occur during the entry process, including without limitation, late, incomplete, delayed, undelivered, or misdirected entries, and Sponsor shall not have any obligation to advise an entrant of an incomplete, invalid, or undeliverable submission. No illegible, incomplete, forged, or altered entries will be accepted. Proof of replying to the Sweepstakes Tweet does not constitute proof of receipt or entry into the Sweepstakes. All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Twitter account used to enter the Sweepstakes will be deemed to be the proper entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider or other organization (which may include an employer) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

8. Prizes and Odds: Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and the General Rules, one (1) winner will receive one (1) one thousand dollar ($1,000) “free bet” via the Online DraftKings Sportsbook (each, a “Prize” and collectively, the “Prizes”). Total Aggregate Approximate Retail Value of the Prizes: $1,000.

The Prize will be delivered to the winner via one (1) free bet “token” deposited into the winner’s Online DraftKings Sportsbook account. For clarity, the free bet is only valid for a single bet of $1,000. Each free bet is valid for seven (7) days, and such seven (7) day period is measured as one hundred sixty eight (168) hours from the time the free bet is deposited by Sponsor into the winner’s Online DraftKings Sportsbook account. Failure by a winner to use their free bet before expiration will void the award. Awarded free bets are non-cashable, not redeemable for cash, non-transferable, non-refundable, and cannot be withdrawn. Free bets may only be wagered one (1) time. The free bet amount is not included in any returns or winnings. Winnings generated from the wagering of a free bet will be transferred to the winner’s cash balance of their Online DraftKings Sportsbook account, at which time such winnings may be withdrawn. By way of example, and for illustrative purposes only, in the event a one thousand dollar ($1,000) free bet is placed on even odds and wins, only the profit of one thousand dollars ($1,000) will be credited to the winner’s Online DraftKings Sportsbook account. Free bets cannot be used with odds boosts, live bets, parlays, cash out bets, or other promotional bets at the discretion of Sponsor. The minimum odds for any free bet using the Prize are -300 (i.e., 1 to 3 odds, which, for clarity and as an example, under -300 odds, to win $10, a bettor would have to wager $30). For further clarity, -299 odds is permitted while -301 odds is not permitted. The maximum odds for any free bet using the Prize are +300 (i.e., 3 to 1 odds). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute the Prize with an equivalent prize of equal or greater value. All applicable federal, state, and local taxes, and all fees and expenses related to acceptance and use of the Prize not specifically stated herein are the sole responsibility of the winners. Sponsor is not liable for computer, internet, or program malfunctions, nor for errors in free bet awards. Sponsor will not replace the Prize in the event it is lost or stolen. Only one (1) Prize is available to be won in the Sweepstakes. In the event, by reason of a print or other error, more than one (1) Prize is claimed, the winners to be awarded the Prize will be selected in accordance with the winner selection method described below from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims to award the one (1) Prize. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or cancellation of Prize delivery due to unforeseen circumstances or circumstances outside of its control. The winner may only use the free bet when physically located in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana (only parishes where a majority of the qualified electors in the parish voted for the proposition to authorize online sports betting), Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, or Wyoming. The winner should reference the Online DraftKings Sportsbook Terms and Conditions when using the free bet for information and limitations on wagering. Additional restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply.

9. Selection of Winner(s): On or about January 6, 2023, (1) potential winner will be randomly selected by Sponsor from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Sponsor will notify the potential winner by sending a “direct message” to the potential winner’s registered Twitter account. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or does not respond within one (1) hour, an alternate potential winner may be selected. Sponsor’s decisions are final on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.
