How does the contest work?
At a pre-determined booth at the GATS in Dallas, TX, the 12 finalists will be given the opportunity to match exactly a predetermined four (4) digit number combination that has been pre-programmed into the “Crack the Vault” iPrize Game application installed on the iPad provided by the Sponsor. 

The $1,000,000.00 (one million dollar) grand prize will be awarded to the first, if any, of the contestants who match exactly the predetermined winning combination which is on file at IP Group (Interactive Promotions Group).

Each of the 12 finalists will be given one attempt to enter a four-digit code. No second attempts will be allowed, regardless of mistaken key selections. Any second attempt by a finalist will void that contestant’s chance to win.

Current or former employees, family members, agents, successors, or assignees of the client or any promotional agency involved with this promotion shall be ineligible to participate. 

The schedule of prize awards is as follows: $1,000,000 (40-year annuity). Odds of winning: 10,000:1. The prize, which totals $1,000,000, is payable in a financial annuity over forty years.

Each contestant agrees to receive information about the contest and news/opportunities from the contest sponsors. Each finalist gives the Sponsor and all co-sponsors designated by the Sponsor the right to use his/her name, voice and likeness, along with his/her city/town and state and any statements made by or attributed to such winner in any and all media (including the Internet), now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity and throughout the universe, for advertising and promotional purposes in connection with the Contest and/or other of the Sponsor’s promotions (including, without limitation, any future or other contest and/or any future or other contest or game or promotion of the Sponsor without further notice, review, approval or compensation, and releases the Sponsor and every director, officer, employee, agent, and manager of the Sponsor from any and all liability with respect thereto).

Sponsor is not responsible for any prize reimbursement resulting from configuration error or software, hardware, or machine malfunction. Tampering with the “Crack the Vault” iPrize Game application is strictly prohibited.  Evidence of entry or any act or submission that changes the odds or functionality of the machine will cause the claim to be denied.

  • All grand prize winning plays are subject to verification by IP Group, whose decisions are final and binding.
  • In the event that no contestant has matched the pre-determined winning four (4) digit number combination, the pre-determined winning number may be released by opening the provided sealed master envelope.  Once the sealed master envelope is opened and the pre-determined winning number has been released there will be no further opportunities for a claim for this event.
  • Failure to adhere to any of the terms and conditions outlined herein will result in a claim denial.

Choice of Law, Disputed Claims, Venue, and Attorney’s Fees

Limitations of Liability
Sponsor is not responsible for lost, interrupted, or unavailable network or other connections, miscommunications, or technical failure, jumbled scrambled or misdirected transmissions, or other error of any kind whether human, mechanical or electronic. 

In the event any portion of the promotion is compromised by virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention, hackers or other causes beyond the control of the Sponsor which, in the sole opinion of the Sponsor, corrupts, or impairs the administration, security, fairness or proper play of the game, Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate all or part of the promotion and reschedule the event. 

The Sponsor is not responsible for any grand prize reimbursement resulting from: (1) incorrect or inaccurate information, printing errors, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Crack the Vault game promotion; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in game or network hardware, or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the Crack the Vault game promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the configuration or administration of the Crack the Vault game promotion; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused directly or indirectly, in whole or in part from contestants participation in the Crack the Vault game promotion.

If for any reason a contestant’s play is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, contestant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Crack the Vault game promotion, if it is possible. No more than the maximum aggregate grand prize limit stated in this Contract will be reimbursed. In the event that erroneous production, configuration, seeding, programming, or any other reason causes more than the maximum aggregate grand prize limit to be available and/or claimed, Interactive Promotions Group suggests splitting the reimbursed amount equally amongst all legitimate, eligible prize claims.

Each winner, by acceptance of the prize, agrees to release Sponsor and all co-sponsors and subsidiary companies, their officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, and advertising agencies from all liability, claims, or actions of any kind whatsoever for injuries, damages, or losses to persons and property which may be sustained in connection with the receipt, ownership, or use of any prize. In no event shall Sponsor be liable for indirect, special, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages, including without limitation, damages for lost profits or revenues, even if advised of the possibility thereof.
