During the Sweepstakes Promotion Period, Sponsor will make a post from the Dunkaroos (@Dunkaroos) Instagram account with a call to action inviting individuals to enter the Sweepstakes (the “Post”) from their Instagram account. To receive one entry into the Sweepstakes, follow @Dunkaroos, like the Post, and comment on the Post by tagging at least one (1) friend and include the hashtag #DunkaroosSweepstakes. For each friend you tag you will receive one (1) entry. Automated entries are prohibited, and any use of such automated devices or programs, script, macro or any other means which subvert the entry process will be void and will result in disqualification.
IMPORTANT FOR ENTRANTS USING A MOBILE DEVICE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWEEPSTAKES: Message and data rates may apply. Not all mobile telephone providers carry the service necessary to participate in this Sweepstakes. Entrants should consult their wireless providers’ pricing plans.
Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Released Parties (as defined in Section 10, below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Entries. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter 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 an authorized account holder.
- Potential Winners Selection. Sponsor will select One (1) potential prize winner (a “Potential Winner”) at random on or about December 27, 2023, from all eligible entries received.

Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. If Sweepstakes Site fails for any reason, any Entry during that time will be deemed a defective Entry and is void and will not be honored.
- Verification of Potential Winners. If a Potential Winner cannot be contacted, or prize is returned as undeliverable, or he/she refuses his/her prize for any reason, that Potential Winner forfeits the prize and Sponsor will select an alternate winner by random drawing from all remaining eligible entries.
