Random Draw on or about 27 April 2017

 

NOTE: The counter does not re-set to zero at the end of each Entry Period; the number of eligible Tweets are cumulative between Entry Periods. Upon reaching the target of Entry Period 1 (500 tweets), in order to reach the target of Entry Period 2 (1,500 tweets) an additional 1,000 tweets are required.

 

WINNER DETERMINATION: On 27 April 2017 at 10:00 am GMT in London, England, United Kingdom at Expedia Office, Block 1, Angel Square, London, EC1V 1NS.

All Entries received from the two (2) remaining countries that were not the first to reach the final Entry Target will not be considered or included in the random drawing.


The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on whether your country is the first to reach the final Entry Target and the number of eligible Entries received for each Entry Period. Sponsor will notify the potential winner via the Twitter account used at the time of entry and will require a contact email address in order to supply the prize. In the event a potential prize winner fails to claim his or her prize within ten (10) days of the drawing date, such potential prize winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize and Sponsor will have no further obligation to such potential winner.  If a prize is forfeited, the Sponsor may conduct a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Entries to select a new potential winner and notify such individual using the notification procedure outlined above.
