3. How to Enter:
Visit https://bicyclecards.com/mardi-gras-giveaway/ during the Sweepstakes Period and complete and submit the registration form, and follow Bicycle on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook. The registration form will require you to provide: your first and last name; your valid mailing address (street address, city, and ZIP code); your valid, working email address; and your valid, working telephone number. Proof of submission does not constitute proof of delivery.
Limit one (1) entry per person/email address, regardless of the method of entry used. You must provide all required information to be eligible to enter and win. All potential winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded.
Sponsor and its agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives, or service providers may use entrants’ personal information submitted with entry for purposes of prize fulfillment and/or for future marketing, such as to notify them of a product or Sweepstakes that Sponsor thinks may be of interest. Sponsor will not sell personal information submitted with entry to outside solicitors.
Bulk, automated and/or third party entries are prohibited and will be disqualified. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, email addresses, logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries, and that participant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter the Sweepstakes will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization 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 to the Sponsor or forfeit the prize. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All potential winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. Normal Internet access, phone, and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply.
4. Selection of winner: On or about March 3, 2022, Sponsor will select the names of one (1) potential prize winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of winning are based on the number of eligible entries received. The potential winners will be notified by email within three (3) business days of the drawing date. Except where legally prohibited, each potential winner must sign and return, within seven (7) days of being notified, an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release (collectively, “Winner Documentation”) in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted in person via email after the first attempt to contact him/her, or if he/she fails to complete and return all required Winner Documentation or other required document within the required time period (if applicable), or in the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
Verification of Potential Winners: ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION AND DUE DILIGENCE BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
5. Prize: One (1) prize winner will receive two (2) Bicycle Marquis playing card decks. The approximate retail value of the prize is twelve dollars ($12.00).
There is no obligation to receive the prize if you are selected as a potential winner. Once notification is sent to a potential winner that verification is complete, the winner will have twenty-four (24) hours to exercise their option to receive the prize. If a winner declines to receive the prize, the winner will forfeit the prize and an alternate potential winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Prize Restrictions: Any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes and all fees and expenses related to acceptance and use of prizes not specifically stated herein are the sole responsibility of the individual prize winner.

6. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control, including but not limited to any cyber-attack or hack, impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes or the awarding of the prize, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
