How to Play
To play the Game, visit the Sweepstakes Website, follow the on-screen instructions and press ‘Play Now’ to use one (1) Daily Play. You will be presented with sixteen (16) circles (each, a “Circle”). Each Circle will represent one (1) of the following icons (each, an “Icon”) (however, the arrangement of these Icons on the screen will be randomly determined by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion on the basis of an assortment algorithm):
- Five (5) Diet Coke Flavor Name icons (each, a “Flavor Name Icon”);
- Four (4) Diet Coke Fruit Flavor icons (each, a “Fruit Icon”);
- Three (3) Diet Coke logo icons (each, a “Logo Icon”); and
- Three (3) game over Icons (each, a “Game Over Icon”).
At the start of a Game Play, you must select one Circle at a time, which will flip it over and reveal the corresponding Icon (a “Selection”). The object of each Game Play is to make a Selection of all Flavor Name Icons, all Fruit Icons or all Logo Icons (each, a “Matching Set”) before Selecting three (3) Game Over Icons (cumulatively). A Game Play will end when you either complete your first Matching Set or you select three (3) Game Over Icons (as determined by the Sponsor and/or Administrator at its sole and absolute discretion). If you select three (3) Game Over Icons during a Game Play, you will not receive any Entries in connection with such Game Play.
If you select a Matching Set before you select three (3) Game Over Icons during a Game Play, you will receive the corresponding number of entries into the applicable Grand Prize Draw, determined as follows:
- A Matching Set five (5) of Flavor Name Icons will result in the receipt of one (1) entry into the Grand Prize Draw (defined below)(a “Grand Prize Draw Entry”);
- A Matching Set of four (4) Fruit Icons will result in the receipt of one (1) entry into the Second Prize Draw (defined below) (a “Second Prize Draw Entry”); and
- A Matching Set of three (3) Logo Icons will result in the receipt of one (1) entry into the Third Prize Draw (defined below) (a “Prize Draw Entry”).
Grand Prize Draw Entries, Second Prize Draw Entries and Third Prize Draw Entries will each be referred to as an “Entry” and collectively as “Entries”.
In addition, if you select the Entry Multiplier during a Game Play, it will multiply the Entry you are eligible to receive by two (2) in the event you Select a Matching Set without Selecting three (3) Game Over Icons during that same Game Play (and, for greater certainty, an Entry Multiplier will not carry over into any subsequent Game Play(s)).For example, if you match five (5) FlavorName Icons and reveal the Entry Multiplier during the same Game Play, you will earn two (2) Grand Prize Draw Entries in connection with such Game Play (1 Grand Prize 1 Draw Entry for selecting a Matching Set of five (5) Flavor Name Icons, multiplied by two (2) for selecting the Entry Multiplier).
You may continue to play the Game until you have run out of Daily Plays or the close of the Sweepstakes Entry Period, whichever occurs first.
Limit of seven (7) Daily Plays per person, per email address during the Sweepstakes Entry Period regardless of method of entry. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address.
